    Follow the money.
    That was not a scientific consensus. True scientific methodology didn't exist then, and mythology was inseparably mixed in with the fledglings of scientific thought.

    Things like a flat earth that was the center of the universe was religious consensus more than anything.

    All decent scientists are skeptics. There is no such thing as an absolute statement in true science. This doesn't mean that the evidence doesn't mean anything, or that an overwhelming mountain of evidence isn't a good enough reason to factor it into the scientific world view.

    You're only further proving my point that not only do you not understand science, but you don't even know what it is.

    Of course government motors is not going to collapse. At least not until the one term president Obama collapses the US economy.

    And this statement is far more reasonable than saying a company losing money is profitable.

    And while I was browsing, I also found she considers nukes an option for pretty much anything - even a cyber attack.

    I think nuclear weapons as an option makes a great deal of sense. I am with M. Bachmann on this one. Ditto on the global warming hoax.

    And lets be glad that your in the minority in this one, and hopefully always will be.

    I'm not into the whole death of millions of civillians.

    And once again, opinion is opinion, just a real shame opinion of the ignorant has to trump real science.

    Do you have any idea what military force is for?
    How many deaths were there at Hiroshima? At Nagasaki? Millions? No. High hundreds of thousands? No. Low hundreds of thousands? Well, maybe. About 200K for one and about 100K for the other.

    Do you prefer killing the old fashioned way?

    We agree, but for opposite reasons. The opinion of charlatans will be trumped by real science. The global warming hoax will live on for a while.

    The first two atomic bombs were crude devises. Targeting was adequate to find an hit small-medium sized cities. Today we can choose which end of a building to hit. Weapons are selected based on the amount of military damage needed to accomplish the goal.

    I showed you by example that the use of nuclear weapons does not cause millions of deaths. Why do you kick so hard against that which is real. Why do you struggle with ghosts?

    Actually we have missiles that can do what we need, why bring nuclear weapons into the equation at all? Poisioning the atmosphere and making parts of the planet uninhabitable for generations?

    Sounds like a PERFECT PLAN.

    If we have a non-nuclear answer we will have the option of using it. Some targets are too hard for conventional attack.

    What makes you think that either one would occur? Were Hiroshima and Nagasaki uninhabitable for generations? Have any of the places where nuclear weapons detonated been uninhabitable for generations? Or is it that you have received your knowledge of nuclear weapons from popular movies and television?

    Your insistence is more religious than scientific. If the science is real it will win out. There is no need to harass, bully, and compel citizens to knuckle under to a government thug.
