Turtle God   Leave a comment

Image result for image of climate change debunkedOkay, I found this meme and I had to post it because it was on one of those sites that pokes fun at “expert” skeptics. Some of us just refuse to accept the “expert” opinion as THE TRUTH because we have become aware that “experts” are affected by their own presuppositions and their opinions can also be bought by the highest bidder or the group offering the most prestige. Forty years ago, scientists were convinced we were hurtling toward the next ice age because of pollution. What happened to that theory? It didn’t pan out, so they changed their rap to global warming. Now that isn’t panning out so they want us to panic over “global climate change.” But the climate has been changing since the Fall. Why do we think it’s going to stop if we sacrifice our economy to it?

My husband found a jade turtle at an antique shop and he brought it home. The Wendat peoples believed that the world was built on the back of a turtle. It explained earthquakes and other issues. It wasn’t correct and I don’t believe in the sacred turtle. That would be idol worship … just like putting my faith in science or the State.
