What Does Global Warming / Climate Change and Christianity Have In Common?
Answer: They both preach doomsday.
I was at the gym the other day talking to somebody (in the sauna) about climate change and he was sharing with me his take on things. He was saying how if we didn't do anything New York could be completely under water in 10 years. He said this is what the top authorities on this subject are saying. He talked about how there is a lot at stake for the whole world if we don't deal with climate change. New York would be the first of many places to be destroyed. Our whole world would become worse and worse as we failed to approach the troubles of global warming.
I got to thinking and it hit me - I have heard this end of the world scenario somewhere before. Oh yes, that's right: the Christian Apocalypse. The Christians preach a very similar end of the world scenario that creates fear.
So I suppose it is somewhat comical to consider that all the progressives and atheists that preach global warming and climate change can hold hands with the Christians that preach the coming apocalypse. They both share in their fear for the end of the age and their hopes that somebody will come along and save them from the tragedy about to unfold. Progressives await the coming Government Messiah while Christians await THE Messiah. Interesting indeed.Filed under: Science, Christianity, Global Warming, Climate Change
