What sort of crazy is the warming denialist?

I’ve got to stop looking over there.

Goddard’s got a post up showing the great disregard he has for the facts, and the law, and history, etc., etc., etc.  It may be an unintentional showing, but there it sits, “like a mackerel in the moonlight, both shining and stinking.”

Jerome Corsi, that serial fictionalizer of vital issues, has a book out promoting his slimy schemes besmirch President Obama.  Goddard urges people to buy it.

But they really pile on in the comments.  It’s almost as if Casey Luskin had a whole family just like himself, and they got together to whine about Judge Roberts again.

Warming denialism, creationism and birthers — is it all just three minor variations on the same brain-sucking virus?  Or could three different diseases produce the same sort of crazy on so many different issues?

I’m reminded of the old saw that you cannot reason a person out of a position he didn’t reach by reason.  These guys will never see the light.  Heaven knows, it ain’t evidence that gets ’em where they are now.

    Mark, in you last sentence did you mean “not too far from” or “not form”.

    Meanwhile, over at Goddard’s place the stupid continues to pour forth:


    You can quote chapter and verse from Hawaiian law as to why they are full of it. You can point out that the document shown by the Obama campaign does indeed appear to be a Hawaiian birth certificate. You can point out that the document, under law, constitutes a birth certificate. The denial knows no bounds. No wonder they deny climate science, which is far more complex than the rather simple law which governs Obama’s birth certificate.

    The authors of “Merchants of Doubt” made the case for the motivation of the leading climate denialists being the fight to save Free Market ideology from anti-market forces. Anti-evolutionists also generally seem to be deeply in love with the Free Market, but I don’t think I’ve heard any of them argue specifically on how evolution plans to destroy that market (although I have heard anti-evolutionists declare that sciences such as ecology were nothing more than efforts to destroy America, but those arguments tend to be nearly incoherent). Similarly, birtherism seems to be merely a means to de-legitimatize our “uppity negro” president–how can such a person be the leader of our white male America?–and just an expression of racism. So despite some commonalities, these three groups don’t seem to for a monophyletic unit.

    The stupid runs deep over there. It is quite clear that from everything I could see it is a legal birth certificate. Heck, it even says so on the document and cites the sections of Hawaiian law which define it as being a birth certificate.
