Via Real Live Preacher

There is a small problem here, but it’s not with his argument, which is sound. Rather, it’s in the fact that he dismisses the question of if global warming is real. Yes, we can all be mistaken. But wouldn’t it be nice if we could be at least reasonably sure, and make our chances of a happy face better?

    It is possible that giant planet-eating space demons might come devour our world in two bites. We could devote the entire planet’s resources to creating a United Nations Space Navy to fight them off. Clearly, we should do so, because if we don’t, the world might end.

    At the same time, we really should do something about the Fourth Reich that might be building an invading empire in the Hollow Earth. Also, seriously, we really should exterminate the , because they might take over the planet, and we can’t risk that, can we?

    “If you do X, Y might happen” is a nearly useless statement unless you can define that ‘might’ with greater precision.

    Thanks, David Hume! :)
