I want to vote "other".

This question is flawed.

Belief in God is based on a standard of faith.

Belief in Global Warming is based on a standard of reason/Science.

So they are apples and oranges IMO.

I accept that Global warming is a fact....because its part of a climatic cycle. 50,000 years from now, people are going to be bitchin' because its gettin cold in here....

Yeah the differance would be that....


Belief in science could help us find a way to reverse global warming, provide alternative fuel sorces, generaly make life better.


Belief in God, while compforting will provide......Nothing!! If God exists, I highly doubt that he will intervine to save us from destroying our planet.....kinda goes against the whole "free will" thing.

What he said...and it is also so minor that it is actually beneficial to mankind as it means a longer crop growing season and requires less fuel to create warmth in winter. We are simply still coming out of an ice age.

No way evolution supports creation of complex creatures
etc.(it isn't random) So belief in a creator 'GOD' has to be a given.

Global warming, not enough past century stats to see that it is a complete trend or a cycle.

Fossil fuels etc are hurting but this may change and cycle.

There is very little proof to support global warming, which is a theory.

There is no proof of a God.

If you are talking about human/CO2 caused Global Warming...

...there's more faith taken there than there is with God.

The unproven issue with evolution is that, assuming the current rate of evolution as the rate over all time, and the assumption that our geological time scale is right, there simply isn't enough time for species to have evolved the way they did. Somewhere there was an acceleration of the evolutionary process or there was massive mutation over very few generations, neither of which we've found or proven. Not to say that it isn't the right theory, but it has holes just like anything else.
