ID-friendly Telic Thoughts blog takes sardonic view of Darwin’s man Nick Matzke’s Nature paper

Meanwhile, the folk over at ID-friendly Telic Thoughts have some, well, thoughts on “Nick Matzke’s Dystopia”:
Well, ok, Matzke is not as scary as Paul “coastlines will be evacuated because of dead fish” Ehrlich and IPCC Chief “Himalayas will melt” Pauchari. In fact, Matzke’s dystopia of plentiful beef, corn, milk, warm climates and balmy tropical oceans sounds rather pleasant to this skeptic. But obviously, he considers this a dire catastrophe in the making.
(Sounds like a lost agrarian paradise to some.)
So I’ll make a prediction of my own. Matzke will offer a progressive solution to the problem which will include reducing consumption, and population control. Hey look! I was right!
“If humans decide to take appropriate action – conserve natural ecosystems, engage in sustainable agriculture and energy production, flatten out population growth and resource consumption, and halt global warming – there is hope that the state shift could be avoided. It’s up to us.”
Well, even if the predictions of alarmist nut jobs rarely ever come true, it’s comforting to know that the alarmists themselves are completely predictable.
Haven’t the alarmos noticed that birth rates worldwide are in steep decline? Wonder who they think’ll pay their pensions … ?
Anyway, it’s curious that atheists don’t actually come up with new cultural themes. They recast venerable tent revivals with new stars, new props.
Aw, you know. The thundering hooves of the apocalypse always pound out the same message: God’s mad at us. Or Darwin is. Or somebody or other with a big stick is.
Anyway, just don’t expect to finish your coffee or read your mail in peace. Unless you decide to ignore it all.
