Head in the Sand

North Carolina recently passed legislation that makes it illegal to take scientific sea level projections into account when planning for coastal development.

It is typical of Christians to ignore bad news when it comes from science instead of from crackpots. If a major event was not prophesied in the bible, it is nothing to worry about. The way Christians look at it, if it will cause global havoc, either god will be its agent, or god will rescue us from it. In either case, there is nothing we need to do. That sort of thinking might lead a Christian in a sinking lifeboat to refuse to bail. This can lead fellow passengers to fantasise about throwing them overboard. Christianity is the major excuse for sloth.
