The global-warming doomsayers, says (ex-Labor Senator Ray)Evans, are anti-development. Moreover, they stem from an environmentalism that has taken the place of Christianity, particularly in Europe. "To put it in its bluntest terms, when you don't believe in God you don't believe in nothing. You believe in whatever is the fashion of the day, and environmentalism has scooped the pool."
Right. So I guess it is not possible for someone to simultaneously not believe in God, and not 'believe in' anything else?
I guess from the perspective of a faith-based believer it is inconceivable that some one may want to rely on the evidence of their senses, or the evidence gleaned from experimenting or observing under empirical before they decide what to believe.
But perhaps religious believers do feel a threat (to their religion) from those they perceive as Gaia worshipers? Hey, why not? At least one can see, feel, hear, touch and taste Gaia. For the uninitiated it's easier to understand that the Earth supports all life than it is to understand that God who we can't see gives us our life.
