    we haven't established that yet...I mean...I could say I'm a dentist, a prison guard, a stock broker, a doctor a sheet metal worker...eieio...So, I wouldn't cave in just yet....I mean...like what makes sand stone so special as opposed to other rocks? etc...burning questions we all want to have answered here...

    I debated points that you brought up! I proved you wrong. It was very colourful ... there was kool-aid (feeling sleepy).

    Bringing the Northern Lights in wasn't beating around the bush? :rolleyes:

    True. But I'll give him the benefit of the doubt for now.

    Now that he is a Geologist and not a "scientist" I don't doubt his knowledge either.

    I am sure that had this been a thread mentioning airplanes I would have pounced if someone was not being accurate either. If he re-read my thread about the volcanos I was not saying what I was saying factually I was just giving another example of what could be causing the increased levels of CO2 in the Atmosphere and to provide me with scientific data either supporting or dis-proving such.

    CPX read what I said as me, with out a doubt, posting fact and I was not...he needs to be more careful about how things are said instead taking hypotheticals and twisting them to be fact and then attacking...frankly it is insulting.

    On the flip side I understand that his education is geology and his posts have obviously supported that fact...but this thread has substance/impact that reaches far beyond the terestial... :)

    hmmm..this sort of tactic sounds familiar...There was a guy who twisted and contorted issues here before...I haven't seen much of him as late...could it be????

    And how am I going to prove it? About as easily as I could convince Jaguar human activity could cause climate-shift.

    In both cases, luckily, the preponderance of evidence points in one direction.

    And I will add one question as well that only a geologist would really know...
    What is the entity that drives the magnetic field?

    I have a better question (since astrophysics is not my field, and I'm not a sedimentologist [sandstone ... blah]) ...

    How did I twist and contort issues?

    Does any of you three (Jag, Zap, or Colorado) subscribe to Anne Coulter's conservative (apparently) philosohy of, I'll paraphrase: "The Earth-take it, rape it" :confused: It seems to be a selfish, "short-term", minded philosophy. Aside from CO2, why put poison's in the air (acid-rain is ONE result) if we don't have to :confused:

    I actually do not like Anne Coulter. I agree we need to take care of the Earth, but not if the US has to bear most of the cost(Kyoto).

    I don't know a great deal about her aside form the extreme stances she takes. I'm sure it holds true for my side too. If one wants to get on television, one has to be an attention getter hence the inflammatory remarks. Hell, there's a remote chance that she might even be a closet liberal :eek: when she's "off the clock" :rolleyes:
