I’m Not a Conservative…
…but the League got called out in particular here, so I’ll give my answers to DougJ’s questions:
1) Do you believe in evolution?
2) Do you believe that the average temperature on earth has increased over the past 30 years?
Answers are below the fold.
To be as clear as possible, what I believe is that natural selection and descent with preserved modification is the best explanatory model for speciation in biology. I don’t have a clear idea of how life originated, but then again, no one else using the scientific paradigm does either. Still, I find it doubtful in the extreme that ancient near easterners with no knowledge of organic chemistry could have come up with an interesting or even slightly relevant answer to questions hereabouts.
2. Yes, and I think human activities caused it.
To everyone who eagerly broke out the metaphorical popcorn in DougJ’s comments — I’m sure I could come up with some patronizing questions for you, too. Would you like that? I’m not sure I would, which is why I haven’t, yet. But I’m sure I could.
Sheesh. Why do I bother?
