Even a 100% die hard skeptic would respect a scientific statement that the chances of the Texas fire and Russia fire last year being a normal fluctuations is 0.13%.
No such equivocation attends a Goddard Institute for Space Studies appraisal of the heat wave that assaulted Texas, Oklahoma, and northeastern Mexico last summer. Their report represents a sea change in high-level climate studies in that they boldly assert a causal link between specific weather events and global warming. The Texas heat wave, like a similar one in Russia the previous year, was so hot that its probability of occurring under “normal” conditions (defined as those prevailing from 1951 to 1980) was approximately 0.13%. It wasn’t a 100-year heat wave or even a 500-year one; it was so colossally improbable that only changes in the underlying climate could explain it. [emphasis mine]
House Elf's are very cool! Hey I'm sorry to hear about the hostility on the site. I just reported a troll not too long ago. The troll was removed from the site. I hope things get better on the site for you.
David, I did not realize there was hostility on this site. I know how miserable that is, having been a target of some pretty nasty stuff from someone who disagreed with me. I read many of your comments, although I am very behind on reading mail. Is there some group that I could receive you comments? Don't want to lose you.
David, please don't leave the forum. I hope that it has not become too hostile, and I apologize if my posts have contributed to that perception. I am not a fan of personal attacks as they tear at the fabric of a community - Chris' attack upon Joseph (what have you done with your life) is both an attack and irrelevant. In addition, Chris has repeatedly posted items completely detached from the thread and prior posts, in violation of AN rules. I've appreciated several of your posts and hope you continue. Best regards,
Hello David. Saw that you posted this discussion on Google, which I fully support. Anytime you want to share anything from me, I will fully support. But what I want to know is how can I get to this on Google to view it. Thanks for the help, my friend, and have a great day.
Hay David, very nice to see you are involved in the forums. I wanted to give you a little insight on Madhukar - here and here. I grew tired of discussing with him, I don't care much what he has to say about other topics, but when it comes to LGBT issues I want Nexus to be the fully welcoming place that it is. Cheers.
Hi David, and welcome to this wonderful world of rationality, truth and peace.
Unbiased common sense, helped by science, leads to happy freethinking wisdom as you have found out.

Nathan Young That's true Jonathan Brown. At one time I was a member of the MRA board when it was more open towards hearing an orthodox Mormon views on things. Since that time the MRA is now under the stewardship of a new 'religion' the 'Society for Humanistic Mormonism' which is merely another apostate religion. It will fail just like all other apostate forms of Mormonism have failed including might I add the Mormon "Transhumanist" Association and their kind, and all the front…
Hello fellow atheists! I have joined this site in an attempt to find other rational individuals, such as myself, and to promote a current charity drive that I am trying to get going for the Oklahoma tornado victims. I have managed to get many groups from around my area, including the Beyond Belief Foundation to back me on this endeavor.
I am located in Newnan, Ga and have my own atheist group entitled "Coweta County Atheists". I am currently being backed by Spaulding Co.…
