Rub it in. While you all are enjoying the intellectual stimulation of TAM5.5 (in Florida of all places), I’m stuck here in Colorado reading stuff like this in the letters to the editor of the Rocky Mountain News:
New Testament also speaks of warming
I would like to add a different perspective to the global warming dialog.
The Bible speaks about global warming in 2 Peter 3:10. It says, “But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up.”
Yes, global warming is in our future.

Well, that sounds more like the demise of the sun to me, when it will turn into a red giant in about 5 billion years, but far beit from me to tell anyone how to interpret the Bible.
Lest I make it sound like Denver is wholly overrun by religion, I’ll be reading from my book-in-progress at a SkeptiCamp — a a free conference where the Participants give the lectures, lead group discussion, entertain, etc. — on March 22nd, 2008. More on that later…
