Ted Cruz: “Climate Change is Not Science – It’s Religion”

Liberals hate hearing this, but deep down, they know it’s the truth. The theory of manmade global warming, or climate change, or period of increased climatic unpredictability, is not actually based on science. It’s not unlike a belief in a false religion.

Their main premise is their belief that humans are causing the earth to heat up at a rapid pace. That’s their first premise. Then all the data they accumulate are then squeezed and twisted in order to fit in that first premise. Then their conclusion is, “Therefore, humans are causing global warming.” It’s the perfect ostensible definition of begging the question – that is, assuming the very thing that needs to be proven.

Global warming’s similarities with a false religion are uncanny. Here’s part of The Blaze’s interview with Ted Cruz:

Just a couple weeks ago in the Senate I chaired a hearing where the president of the Sierra Club testified,” said Senator Cruz in an Oct. 28 interview on The Blaze TV. “We had an exchange, where I simply asked him about the data.”

Aaron Mair is president of the Sierra Club. 

He [Mair] simply couldn’t answer the most basic question, starting with the fact — he couldn’t answer the most basic fact that for the last 18 years the satellite data show no significant warming whatsoever,” said Cruz.

He had no idea about that,” said Cruz.  “He turned to his aides every minute or two.”

You know, part of the reason he didn’t know the facts?” said Cruz.  “Because climate change is not science — it’s religion.”

Look at the language where they call you a denier,” said the senator.  “Denier is not the language of science.”

Look, I’m the child of two scientists,” he said.  “My parents are both mathematicians, computer programmers. My dad was a self-taught geophysicist. The essence of the scientific method is to start with a hypothesis and then look to evidence to disprove the hypothesis. You’re not trying to prove it. You’re trying to disprove it.”

Any good scientist is a skeptic,” said the senator.  “If he’s not, he or she should not be a scientist. But yet the language of the global warming alarmists, ‘denier’ is the language of religion. It’s heretic. You are a blasphemer.”

Cruz continued, “The response from the Sierra Club: ‘We have decreed this is the answer, you must accept it.’ And so he didn’t know his facts because he just knew his religion.”

Liberals have created their own religion, and they call it “Science.” It’s not to be confused with actual science. Actual science is how we describe the natural world.

But they’ve taken that word “science” and used it as the name of their religion. Now, if you question their religion, they call you “anti-science” or “science-denier.”

They’d call famed neurosurgeon Ben Carson a “science-denier.” Listen to him explaining how the brain works, and then tell me that he “hates science.”
