Government Employees Tampering with Temperature Data? Quelle Surprise!

forest-fire-432870_1280

We are mere seconds away from becoming Venus, according to government propaganda

Big Daddy Government wants you to believe it can control the weather by taxing you. It further wants to tighten the string it already has tethered to our backs to control our range of movement by making an element (carbon) on the periodic table – the element all life on earth is based on – seem evil in the minds of the sheeple.

Bureaucrats can then continue the narrative that traveling is evil because planes, trains, and automobiles are destroying the planet, so stay home, watch TV and be sure to buy plenty of consumer crap as if that’s not destroying the planet. Don’t go see any of those faraway cultures that haven’t been assimilated into the Anglo-American Matrix. (You might just discover how much of your humanity has been lost in America by discovering a culture of consumerism and Puritanism isn’t the be-all, end-all of human existence!)

The Global Warming Religion and carbon tax scheme is yet another example of everything in the Blue Pill world being a lie. It’s another Big Lie promulgated by self-annointed “Elites” to keep the commoners on track behaving as their told and producing profit. In support of this agenda, NOAA just published another batch of massaged (read: falsified) temperature data showing that we – surprise, surprise – are on our way to being just like Venus, soon. The event was hyped by Climate Central, a global warming alarmist blog:

In all likelihood, the U.S. is going to have its second-hottest year on record, trailing only 2012. Every state is slated to have a top 10 warmest year and even at the city level, unrelenting warmth has been the main story in 2016.

What the hell? The Deplorable Climate Science blog (heh) readily debunks this claim from climate “scientists” who are foaming at the mouth to create revenue (i.e. secure grants to “fight” the problem) rather than creating scientific advancement.

The first problem with their analysis is that the US had very little hot weather in 2016. The percentage of hot days was below average, and ranked 80th since 1895. Only 4.4% of days were over 95°F, compared with the long term average of 4.9%. Climate Central is conflating mild temperatures with hot ones.

Beyond the false narratives illuminated by The Deplorable Climate Science blog, NOAA surface temperature data is contaminated by islands of humanity and its pavement and concrete jungles. The planet is 70% water, and humanity’s reworking of the land to form towns and cities is but a thin film of civilization on the planet. Measuring temperature near human settlements is the planetary equivalent of measuring temperature in your house rather than outside, because temperature is only being measured where humans have reworked the land and there are LOCAL effects like urban heat islands, solar insolation reflecting off of asphalt, etc.

Even that’s not enough for NOAA, it further manipulates the data.

The problem with the NOAA graph is that it is fake data. NOAA creates the warming trend by altering the data. The NOAA raw data shows no warming over the past century.

Interestingly, the adjustments NOAA makes always show warming, curiously, the exact type of warming they keep warning us about even though satellite temperature measurements of the globe show we are actually cooling down. One NASA scientist says NOAA monkeying around with the data is scientific chicanery in the first place:

Gavin Schmidt at NASA explains very clearly why the US temperature record does not need to be adjusted. “You could throw out 50 percent of the station data or more, and you’d get basically the same answers.”

Then, Schmidt mentions a network of climate stations set up to combat the biases mentioned above that occur when weather stations are located near urban areas.

One recent innovation is the set up of a climate reference network alongside the current stations so that they can look for potentially serious issues at the large scale – and they haven’t found any yet.

It’s not surprising this data from a network of weather stations specially designed to measure the temperature of the overall planet rather than the microclimates of urban areas is not used by NOAA and its unpaid but fully baptized minions in the blogosphere, because it doesn’t support the polemic.

Here’s the bottom line about why this problem of “global warming” never goes away. In America, you have to create problems to create profit. Even though global warming and global cooling cycles are completely natural, you have to make them sound scary so government scientists can swoop in and save the day. It’s a plot so hackneyed it follows so many bad Hollyweird movies.

Expect the alarmists to become even more strident in their prognostications of doom as the global warming narrative continues to fall apart.

Ozone Layer “Hole” Big as Ever: Was It All Just Another Myth

Natural_Girl

It seems Mother Nature will be alright without crushing government interventions

Remember the infamous ozone “hole” that was supposed to fry the planet with lethal doses of UV radiation all because of human-produced CFCs? Nearly 30 years after the banning of CFCs by the Montreal Protocol the hole is bigger than ever. The fourth largest hole on record just occurred just last October, just after the frigid Antarctic winter. Well, hole is actually a misnomer as it’s really a slight seasonal thinning of the ozone layer over Antarctica. Most troublingly, the appearance of the ozone hole out of nowhere in 1978 coincided with the expiration of an important big business CFC patent even though this organic compound had been in use since the 1930s!

In any case, the political sophists who write articles for mass consumption for the lamestream media, maybe by accident, at least went so far as to give us a half truth about how the ozone hole forms. This revelation interferes with not just one, but two major scares being pushed by corrupt government officials and adherents to the environmental religion. The Weather Network wrote:

Why did the ozone hole grow so large this year? It was a combination of just how persistent ozone-depleting chemicals are in the atmosphere, and just how cold the atmosphere got over Antarctic during the past month.

Ozone_Dobson

The ozone hole peaks during the Antarctic winter (June-September in the Southern Hemisphere)

What? The ozone hole is dependent on cold temperatures? Yes. It is also a function of the lack of sunlight for 6 months over Antarctica as ozone is an unstable molecule that regularly falls apart and becomes regular old oxygen. Ozone regenerates from atmospheric oxygen only in sunlight. Some scientists now say the ozone hole has likely always been there, and it does show a correlation with changing seasons – at polar latitudes a correlation with 6 months of sunlight and 6 months of darkness. It is also correlated with temperatures that are much, much colder over the South Pole than the North Pole. Further, the fact the atmosphere got so cold as to help destroy ozone goes against the “hotter planet than ever” global warming polemic. So, there are major problems with yet another leftist doom and gloom narrative brought on by the ozone-destroying extreme cold over Antarctica.

Clyde Spencer explains how the ozone generation-destruction cycle is deeply connected to sunlight, seasonally changing temperatures, and the seasonal presence or absence of the Antarctic polar vortex. Additionally, the Antarctic polar vortex is much stronger and more persistent than the Artic polar vortex – meaning the often Antarctic is “cut off” from areas of the atmosphere where ozone is being generated.

From my reading on the subject, the bulk of Earth’s ozone is created in the equatorial stratosphere. It moves polewards both because of a lesser partial pressure of ozone at higher latitudes, and also because of equatorial heating and cooling at the poles. In any event, ozone has a relatively short half-life, and in the absence of sunlight, there is no new ozone created at the poles in the Winter to replenish what naturally decays. As I remarked in a previous post, anomalously high concentrations are routinely recorded outside the Antarctic circumpolar vortex. I’m not sure of the exact mechanism that stalls the migration, but the evidence is visible. As to the photolysis and catalytic destruction when the sun first comes up over the horizon, I’m pretty sure it happens, but the effect is probably overemphasized. The Total Ozone Mapping Spectrometer was unable to measure Winter ozone levels because it required sunlight, something in short supply over the South Pole in the Winter. So, what we see is during the earliest possible measurements, there is low ozone which continues to decrease in concentration until the vortex breaks up and the ozone sitting outside the vortex can mix with the depleted air. Once the sun gets high enough in the sky, it is capable of actually producing some ozone over the pole, although it is by then also supplemented by ozone from lower latitudes as it is free to migrate into that area in the absence of the vortex.

The above explanation was left as a comment to an excellent article by Dr. Tim Ball entitled The Ozone Scare Was A Dry Run For The Global Warming Scare. Dr. Ball explains this idea in that article:

There is not now and never was a “hole in the ozone.” The phrase was a public relations construct to mislead and exploit fear as the basis for a political agenda. The procedure used in the exploitation of environmental and climate for a political agenda is to take normal patterns and events and present them as, or imply, they are abnormal. It works because most people don’t know what is normal. Global warming became the largest exploitation of this practice, but it was based on the knowledge gained from reported ozone depletions over Antarctica. The ozone deception served as a forerunner, a practice run, for the global warming deception to follow.

The global warming deception is one of the linchpins to global government, as revealed by Lord Christopher Monkton in his reporting of what is actually being discussed at the annual global warming conferences. Contrary to counter propaganda telling us what a success global governments’ ozone layer intervention was that’s being put out this summer, the hole has not been fixed by eliminating a cheaper, more effective and easier to use refrigerant called Freon. And as we will see, its replacement Puron is anything but pure.

Ozone

One of the biggest ozone holes ever recorded just happened over Antarctica, contradicting the old narrative that it would be in the process of disappearing by now

Record Ozone Hole After Last Winter

Despite the fact the ozone hole expanded to a 4th largest on record extent of 28.2 million square kilometers just last winter, propagandists and sycophants adhere to a narrative that the ozone hole is slowly healing. The consumption of ozone depleting substances has plummeted since 1987, yet now we are supposed to believe the chemicals are “long-lived” even though the people pushing the ozone hole polemic said the hole would fade away by 2030 to 2050. We are only 13.5 years away from 2030, and if anything the size of the hole has stabilized. Illustrating the media echo chamber in full effect, and the predilection of media to take the “official” word claiming the sky is purple in the face of evidence from the peons telling them that it’s blue, the National Geographic says its right on pace with the expected timeline, in the face of contradictory evidence.

Ozone_Graph

The size of the ozone hole has stabilized around an average of 20-25 million km for 25 years

Vox (another echo chamber blog) reported just this month the ozone hole is healing despite the size hole stabilizing around a large mean over the past 20 years, and the fact we just had one of the largest holes on record. This graph using data from NASA and the European Environment Agency shows the hole has stabilized around a mean of 20-25 million square kilometers since 1992.

The data pre-1992 is highly suspect because CFCs have been used worldwide and released into the atmosphere since the 1930s, so why did the hole just magically appear in 1978 out of nowhere? Perhaps because a major chemical company needed a crisis? The critical DuPont manufacturing patent for Freon (“Process for Fluorinating Halohydrocarbons”, U.S. Patent #3258500) was set to expire in 1979. That is quite an interesting coincidence! Nonetheless, leftists are doubling down on their narrative that humans are bad and a gigantic, crushing, oppressive government is needed to save the world.

The new government-approved “environmentally friendly” Puron refrigerant is a potent greenhouse gas that was developed as a replacement in an age in which we are supposed to be worried sick about global warming. (Notice how PR flacks mangle words like “pure” into a product that is anything but pure!) The Marxist media never brings the fact up we are mass producing a greenhouse gas far stronger than CO2 as an “environmentally friendly” replacement. The duplicity and hypocrisy is astounding.

The important concept to take away from all this is there are a lot of questions that need to be raised about the ozone hole scare, as well as the seemingly unending list of scares that could have been invented out of whole cloth by a corporate-government complex that lives and dies by the adage you have to create problems to create profit. Scaring the shit out of the population also helps a corrupt government legitimize itself as it gets the public to trade away freedom for the illusion of safety. (75% of the population of the United States now realizes its government is corrupt in the latest Gallup polling data.) As Mark Twain said, It’s easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled. Not to mention the vanishing ice age and acid rain environmental crises of the 1970s and 1980s.

It looks like have been had yet again in the age of propaganda. But, people are quickly waking up from the mass delusion created by the centralization of communication centered around the Television Age. The creation of problems like this for the fun and profit of psychopathic government officials and CEOs begs the question: How deep does this ozone… er… rabbit hole go, Alice?

What is Really Being Discussed by Governments at Global Warming Conferences

Rainbow

There is not a rainbow hovering over the global warming conferences, there is a dark cloud of tyrannical interests

Sunshine, lollipops, and rainbows, everything that’s wonderful is what I feel when we’re together. That is the image the press gives the world of the annual global warming conferences held by governments in cities around the world each year. Not only is flying to the meetings in carbon polluting jets hypocritical in the modern age of teleconferencing, which would save many millions of tons of CO2 from being emitted but the proposals being discussed at these meetings have more to do with establishing a world government than saving the world.

Lord Christopher Monckton, former Science Advisor to Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, climate change skeptic, and mathematician, attended these meetings annually until he was banned for calling their statistics into question. As Monckton has revealed and this infographic shows, what is really being discussed at the annual global warming meetings is not so sunny:

Monckton_Proposals

The aims are largely about crippling Western economies and establishing global bureaucracy rather than saving the planet

Proposals Explained

Most of the proposals supposedly aimed at “saving the world” will only strengthen the government’s hand in our lives, and hand decision making control of sovereign nations over to a global authority.

  • Right of legal personality given to Mother Earth to sue Western nations in a Climate Court. This is nothing more than a gigantic wealth redistribution scheme and a thinly veiled attempt at creating global welfare which will be funded by Western nations. It will give the right to developing countries to sue America and Europe, making each pay for its “climate sins” of the past such as using fossil fuels to move people and goods and generate electricity.
  • Cut CO2 concentration to 210 ppm. This is an unachievable goal, and total insanity since today’s 400 ppm CO2 level is one of the lowest in the past 500 million years. Carbon dioxide is exhaled by humans and other animals, and acts as plant fertilizer. Without it, plants would die as they cannot photosynthesize without CO2. Plants grow faster and heartier when CO2 levels are higher.
  • Create 1,000 New Bureaucracies to Manage the World Government. Thousands of bureaucracies will ultimately micromanage every facet of life of every human on the planet. Some of the colorful names of the proposed bureaucracies include: Body to Launch a Process to Further Define the Roles and Functions of the New Body to Assist the Conference of the Parties in Exercising its Functions with Respect to the Financial Mechanism. As if there wasn’t enough governmental control, the global warming polemicists now want to micromanage everything from driving to breathing with this proposal.
  • American and European CO2 Emissions Cut By More than 100%. This would immediately shut down and cripple the American and European economies. Driving gasoline cars would be out of the question as would most electricity generation in the United States. The majority of electricity comes from coal. Wind farms may seem like a solution, but with only 50,000 wind turbines in the U.S. 300,000 birds are already being killed every year by the blades of these monstrosities. Estimates say as many as 5 million wind turbines would be needed to meet our current energy needs, which means tens of millions of birds would be sacrificed for green energy. Solar plants are also burning birds alive.
  • Shipping and aviation fuels regulated by a world governmental body. This means business would have to submit to government authority in order to move anything from food to furniture to your Amazon purchase to flying you to your vacation destination. These fuels would be regulated, and taxed, by an unelected world government.
Paperwork

Creating mountains of legalistic, controlling bureaucracy and paperwork are the real aims at the global warming conferences

Carbon Taxes 15 Times More Expensive than Adaptation

Monckton has done the math of what these and other proposals, like a global carbon tax, will cost the world.

A carbon tax today would be at least 15 times more expensive and less cost-effective than adaptation to any adverse effects of global warming the day after tomorrow.

Of course, adverse affects of global warming assume the scare is right in the first place. Its effects have been underwhelming so far, which one should expect in realizing CO2 should never be classified as a pollutant as it is the basis for all life on earth. It is one of the weakest greenhouse gases, and makes up a tiny 0.039% of the atmosphere.

Taxing an element on the periodic table, the element all life on earth needs to survive is the height of government insanity. Humans are made of carbon, plants are made of carbon, and animals are made of carbon. What’s more, doomsday predictions made in the 1980s, 1990s, and early 2000s for today have not come true, even though the media have shifted into overdrive playing up normal, if tragic weather events. Indeed, fear mongering is the staple of the climate scare.

In 2006, the Stern Report on climate economics absurdly assumed a 10 percent probability that global warming would bring the world to an end by 2100. Now, after at least 16 years without warming, this assumption looks quaintly overblown. Even if we were to accept Stern’s fanatical standpoint, no proposal to mitigate global warming would be cost-effective if it were to exceed his central estimate of the undiscounted cost of doing nothing, which is just 1.5 percent of global GDP throughout this century.

In other words, it would be far cheaper to respond to the threat than it would be to cripple economies trying to prevent it based scare that is based almost exclusively on computer modeling. Monkton knows there is a human cost to this religious crusade against the life-giving molecule carbon dioxide.

This is cruelty on an unprecedented scale, in that millions are now dying of starvation – not because of global warming but because of crass and cruel policies governments are implementing for the purpose of trying to save the planet. In every way this is going to cause huge damage to [the West’s] ability to compete in the world marketplace, and for absolutely no climate benefit. People have seen right through this, and seen right through it because they know that in the end they pay for it through their taxes and through their jobs.

Beyond levying taxes on the air people breathe, killing jobs, and establishing more government control, it is often forgotten plants need carbon to photosynthesize. CO2 is plant fertilizer more than it is anything else.

Leaves

Photosynthesis cannot occur without carbon (CO2) and higher levels lead to a greener planet, making it perhaps the greenest gas in the atmosphere

Control

The real reason the global warming agenda is being pushed is because it is the linchpin to the ongoing construction of the New World Order. A social hysteria has to be fomented so people act irrationally to “save the planet” when in fact all they will be doing is giving authoritarian control to an unelected body that will have the ability to tax every human being on the planet and control every aspect of people’s lives and the economy.

It is an underhanded trick, which uses elements of Judeo-Christian religion (as pointed out by bestselling author Michael Crichton) to bring about belief and submission without evidence.

It is a continuation of a century-long process of emotional manipulation by the puppetmasters in corporations and the government, which began with shifting Anglo America to a materialistic economy, then removing rational thinking from politics, and which now aims to remove all dissent from consolidation of power by an elite.

The proposals will not save the world, they will enslave it.

If God Does Not Exist, Anything is Permitted

StPeters

Religion means much more to a society than just belief

Dostoevsky said it best: If God does not exist, anything is permitted. His novel The Brothers Karamazov had it right, without a religious moral code as its backbone society degenerates and becomes amoral. People begin to stand on shallow principles, as has happened in the West. Nihilism, the belief that life is without any intrinsic value becomes rampant. And, as one churchgoer told me at a Catholic church here in Latin America:

When people don’t believe in God, they begin to believe they are God.

G.K. Chesterson also knew the dangers of ditching religion.

When men choose not to believe in God, they do not thereafter believe in nothing, they then become capable of believing in anything.

As we are about to see, even atheists often have religious beliefs. But, their beliefs are focused on other dogma instead of a god.

What the Left Worships

The left assumes a posture of superiority in America, because to them they are “smarter” than the “primitives” who still “cling to their religion and guns” as Obama put it.

However, religion seems to be deeply embedded in the mind of man and the irreligious left is just as susceptible to religious belief. As author Michael Crichton observed, the left adopts global warming and other environmental issues as religion without realizing it. The entire global warming farrago is based on shaky scientific evidence and political machinations, but leftists defend it with religious fervor.

Those who do not believe in this pseudo-elite dogma are excommunicated from the leftist community and condemned as non-believers or deniers. The Global Warming Religion also reflects belief in sin and redemption: people sin when they drive automobiles and use air conditioning but they can redeem themselves by paying a carbon tax.

Crichton explains in his excellent essay Environmentalism as Religion:

Environmentalism seems to be the religion of choice for urban atheists. Why do I say it’s a religion? Well, just look at the beliefs. If you look carefully, you see that environmentalism is in fact a perfect 21st century remapping of traditional Judeo-Christian beliefs and myths. There’s an initial Eden, a paradise, a state of grace and unity with nature, there’s a fall from grace into a state of pollution as a result of eating from the tree of knowledge, and as a result of our actions there is a judgment day coming for us all. We are all energy sinners, doomed to die, unless we seek salvation, which is now called sustainability. Sustainability is salvation in the church of the environment. Just as organic food is its communion, that pesticide-free wafer that the right people with the right beliefs, imbibe.

Unfortunately, people often mean well when they believe in such a religion but their goodwill is subverted by those who turn a cause into a racket. They also become fanatical in their beliefs and want to persecute those who do not believe, as we have seen with the American government discussing criminalization of climate denial.

Buddha

Buddhism’s principle of nonviolence has served Asian societies well

Religion’s Role

As most of Europe is now atheist and an increasing number of people are not of the book in America, we have seen the breakup of the family and the rise of degeneracy. Without religion to guide it, or the wrong religion, society can go off the rails quickly. These excerpts from an essay on religion detail three of the most important functions it serves.

Religion promotes the major social virtues like truth, honesty, non-violence, service, love, discipline etc. A follower of the religions internalizes these virtues and becomes disciplined citizen of the society.

There is perhaps nothing that requires more discipline than raising a family and children who become responsible members of society. Much to the chagrin of secularists, religious families do the best job of achieving this according to demographic research of social scientists in Demographic Winter.

The family is perhaps the hardest feature of civilization to hold together, because man still has animalistic instincts as Freud told us in Civilization and Its Discontents. Religion, when done right attempts to harness these animal forces and direct them towards the common good.

Religion inculcates the spirit of self-service. It demands that people should be charitable and benevolent. Through various religious experiences he forgets the worldly life and problems. This experience suppresses the animal desires and converts the animal qualities of man to human qualities.

And as Marxists know, when traditional religion can be subverted and turned into religions of the environment and the state it imbues bureaucrats with enormous influence and power. Their religion has become government worship. Marxists see the state as the savior of mankind.

Religion is one of the most important agents of socialization and social control. It has significant role in organizing and directing social life. It helps in preserving social norms and strengthening social control.

No religion in perfect. But before relegating Christianity to the ash heap of history as many on the Left want to do, a cost-benefit analysis should be done. But what are its pros and cons when attempting to replace it with a religion that worships government and the state as the savior of mankind?

Governments have failed man time and time again and attract the very worst people (generally, sociopaths) in our species. As Ronald Reagan said:

Government is not the solution to our problems, government is the problem.

Government is force. Essentially, it is a mob with a monopoly on violence. Therefore, it can only bring about change by coercion. It is not a savior of mankind, but rather a cancer upon it.

Bible

The cost-benefit analysis works out in favor of Christianity or other traditional religions vs. worshipping government

 Cultural Marxism

Destroying traditional religion and replacing it with a religion of the state is one of the effects of Cultural Marxism. This is Cultural Marxism on paper:

[Cultural Marxism is] gradual process of destroying all traditions, languages, religions, individuality, government, family, law and order in order to re-assemble society in the future as a communist utopia. This Utopia will have no notion of gender, traditions, morality, god or even family or the state.

In practice, it leads to worshipping the government as a religion. Also, it is an irony the diversity Leftists sanctify in their religion of Marxism will ultimately destroy true diversity, as all nations, peoples, and beliefs are blended into one ethnically mixed collective that bends its knee to the almighty state.

The main vehicles currently used to promote the Socialist worldview are the legacy media and Hollywood.

Hollywood

Hollywood

Militant secularists in Hollywood regularly denigrate the beliefs of Christians and Jews, but they do not poke fun at Buddhists and Muslims. In 1976 Carrie portrayed a lunatic Christian mother locking her daughter up in a closet after she had her first period. More recently, Larry David peed on a painting of Jesus Christ for comedic effect on his HBO series. One blogger pointed out Hollywood’s bias:

Christians [are often portrayed] as weak nut cases, serial killers, stupid, schizophrenic, bad parents, demonic or intolerant.

Seldom do we hear a point of view which differs, such as the following: Minister Eddie Hyatt’s essay How Secular Media is Destroying Minds and Destroying America sums up what the sewer pipe coming out of Hollywood does to society as it spews its Christophobic bile into theaters and our homes.

I have come to realize that “don’t believe everything you see on TV” is a message that America and the Church needs to hear. This is because our nation has adopted a belief system based on a make-believe world produced by Hollywood script-writers and actors. In this fictional world of Hollywood, sin does not exist and there are no consequences for our behavior. In this unreal world, which is the product of someone’s imagination, sexual deviancy and immorality are the norm and “fun” with no negative outcomes or aftereffects. Drunkenness, crudeness and vulgarity are presented as acceptable and even “funny.” Good is depicted as evil and evil as good.

It becomes much more than entertainment when people begin to subconsciously believe the fantasies filmmakers are spinning, and adopting the moral codes represented on the screen.

Christianity is attacked more than any other religion in America. This is due in part to Marxism, but the reasons go deeper than that. As Spengler knew, once a society reaches the civilization stage a battle of New vs. Old ideas proceeds. The society attempts to replace tradition and religion with economics and theory. It begins to focus on earthly ideals instead of spiritual ones. This ultimately leads to a society’s downfall.

BlueSky

Looking Up Instead of Down

Religion should inspire people to figuratively look up instead of down. Society benefits by its giving man higher aspirations and goals in life than hedonism, materialism, and nihilism.

The failure to inspire man has widespread implications. One of the most important of our time is the fact the more secularized society becomes, the fewer children people have. A birth dearth has become so advanced in the West it threatens to destroy economies, so immigrants have to be brought in to keep the machinery of the economy running. This of course, say nothing of Western culture which is imperiled by its self-imposed sterilization and demographic replacement.

Secular households consistently do not produce enough children to sustain the population. Ph.D. Mom Dropout explains how children are viewed in religious households vs. secular households.

Religion essentially extends one’s time-horizon to include multiple generations–children, grandchildren, etc. However, from a secular viewpoint, children are a burden that detracts from “living life to the fullest”–after all, your short time on Earth is all you have. Therefore, children are more likely to be valued in a religious household and less valued in a secular household.

Statistically, a strong family and religion go hand in hand.

There is a strong connection between the birth rate and weekly church attendance.

Demographers know it, religious families with both parents present not only have more kids but their kids statistically turn out better than those from secular families. That said, these facts are not meant to recommend people go listen to hellfire preaching every weekend. But, without any religious principles at all man returns to a feral lifestyle. First the family goes, then the culture, and then the civilization. Bronze Age myths may seem trite to some, but they have survived for thousands of years for a reason. Changing the set and frame of a society carries with it enormous risks.

Secularism does not carry the weight of a civilization. Like it or not, religion does.
