Environmentalism is just the latest attempt to find a substitute for the theory of evolution and it is paradoxical that it can be so widespread when next year (2009) is the 200th birthday of Charles Darwin and the 150th anniversary of the publication of his major work “The Origin of Species as the Result of Natural Selection”.
This is a genuine breakthrough in crank thinking! All of a sudden the thousands of respected scientists who can be classified as environmentalists (not just climatologists) are actually creationists, who just pretend to accept evolution. Clearly this is a deathblow to climate change and environmentalism, because such claims simply cannot be refuted… at least not with a straight face.
Oh and for the record, Darwin’s famous book was not called “The Origin of Species as the Result of Natural Selection” as Vincent Gray asserts but “On The Origin of Species
by Means of Natural Selection“. Makes one wonder what else he may have gotten wrong…
