Letter: Global warming doubters ignore factsI see by the papers there appears yet another “What, me worry?” letter blasting the scientific evidence of global warming from the full-of-faith, fully blown delusional community.

I see by the papers there appears yet another “What, me worry?” letter blasting the scientific evidence of global warming from the full-of-faith, fully blown delusional community. How typical.
Typical, because of the method used to attack where question after question without contributing a single fact by what we know today as the “scientific method.” This process, known as “induction,” as associated with Francis Bacon. It has been dismissed long ago as incapable of proving — or disproving — anything. It merely denies the facts and disassembles the argument. That is why it is no longer used for scientific inquiry.
Advances in science are made possible only because of the scientific method. By using “deductive reasoning,” the human mind can more clearly define and more accurately describe our world. Deductive reasoning is closely tied to our world’s greatest detective, Sherlock Holmes. Holmes explains it to Dr. Watson somewhat like this: “In any mystery we must investigate every possibility and eliminate them one by one. Whatever remains, no matter how improbable or impossible it may seem, must be the truth!’
I caution all who attempt to argue with the anti-science minority. Their goal is insidious and self-serving. They have an ax to grind; don’t let them grind it on you. They are out to attack science and therefore their methods are “anti-scientific.”
They do not believe in “facts” like the speed of light or E=MC2. However, I have yet to hear an explosion of an atom bomb deemed an “act of god.”
My advice to those of the full-of-faith, fully blown delusionist persuasion is to go and dig a deep hole in the sand, and then bury your head in it.
