You know what is even more similar to what religions do? Using a term like "heretics" - only your variant is called "denialists". Yes, religions have been using that trick for hundreds of years to escape questions.

Another way you can tell you are part of a cult is when your high priests are telling you to sacrifice something while they live in comfort and plenty.

I guess really though, we should say what you are involved in it far closer to scientology, with adjusted core sample data replacing e-meters...

haha just like my stovetop burner only affects the temperature of a few millimeters of water on the bottom of the pot

That is far more an example of the effect the sun has on the water than the atmosphere.

If you go into a shallow lake is it the same as ambient air temperature...

Put a few miles of water above your pot and see how far it gets when you turn on the heat below..

I have no killfile because I believe in hearing what other people think.

Like all denialists you cover your ears and go LA LA LA when confronted with heresy to your chosen brands of religion.

It's sad really, that an otherwise intelligent individual can let himself go in a kind of self-imposed Alzheimer's.

The real denialists are, and always have been, the ones who think science is never to be questioned.

You are more the zealot than anyone who ever came out of Bob Roberts U.

It will be nice a decade or two hence when it is undeniable just how far you have allowed yourself to be duped (well actually it is the case now, but even you will admit it in 20 years).

At least they have provided us with a nice visual demonstrating the relationship between the ocean and the atmosphere.

Why is it nice to be misled?

In reality the atmosphere affects the temperature of a few inches of water on top of the ocean.

Far vaster of an impact is solar energy input.

I would say that Nimrod is very well know as a term for idiot. I think most everyone I know would think of "idiot" before they thought of "hunter". I don't think I learned the meaning "hunter" until I was in my 20's. That is in the US of course, might be different elsewhere, perhaps places where Loony Tunes was less well known (Bugs Bunny calling Elmer Fudd a "poor little Nimrod" is where it first picked up the "idiot" connotation). In any case it was widely understood when I was in elementary and high school (80's and 90's)

So give the patient a fever?

Not exactly - that is worse.

It's more like give the individual cells a fever. Specifically if you can target the out of control cancer cells. The runaway machinery apparently can't cope with being too far outside normal operating range, whereas healthy cells, for the most part, can.

There was a seminar by one of the scientists who was visiting the UW about evolutionary biology and the implications on viral load and parasites, which pointed out that, even as we reduce specific infestations, other infestations end up replacing them, if we don't alter the polluted water and food sources that created them in the first place.

So I'd say that it is a moving target. Even when we come up with malarial or TB drugs, we still fail to alter the underlying living conditions which create the risk factors in the first place.

Comment: Don't reinvent the Wheel (Score 1) 443

A lot of people obsess over making new wheels. They'd be far better off it they wrote a decent object library to do wheels once, maintain it, and spend far more time getting the engine to push the wheel.

Wheels are wheels. You don't need to make a new one every time, unless you're writing the core Wheel program. Spend your time on the stuff that matters, not the inner mechanisms of the windshield washing blade, use someone else's windshield washing blade.
