My problem is them trying to make their case with no supportive facts at all, Just beliefs and feelings combined with 24 hour plate monitoring/news cycle.
Yea, in their world fact is the worst of the 4 letter words.

I asked him later why he didn't care that planes had just run into the buildings and the Pentagon, and he said he thought when I called that I was trying to cause panic like the War of the Worlds broadcast in 1938 that caused mass hysteria.

I didn't even know there WAS a 1938 broadcast that caused many Americans to believe that aliens had invaded.

I'm always so confused.

I'm sorry! I didn't know Connecticut had a RARE TORNADO that struck Bridgeport! I have family in Connecticut and I had no idea! Another weather anomaly!

Connecticut city counts damage, blessings after Tornado

I also didn't know The Phillipines had a flooding in addition to the Brazilian one from a few days ago. And it seems China has just been struck with more record rainfall today in the south and central provinces. Reportedly getting ready for the rivers to flood AGAIN after last week's catastrophic flood.

Statistics is not one of the skills you learned in high school is it?

Statistics?STATISTICS??We don't need no stinking statistics!Who needs facts when you can simply interpret tornados in Conn. as meaning the end of the world is near?

Why do you insist that people have actual proof for what they believe?It just takes all the fun out of the paranoia.

Strange how science works,is it not?Like you typing on a computer and words coming out here on the website.

Just a question.Did you pray for Obama to be defeated and the Republicans to win in 2008,as so many fundie Christians did?Why then is Obama the President?
