It is no secret that college campuses in general have become platforms for leftist propaganda and sinkholes of irrationality. A recent example of such irrationalism comes from University of Michigan Professor Juan Cole who alleges that carbon dioxide is far more deadly than Sarin gas.
The mind-boggling madness of such a claim must not be brushed aside with a simple roll of the eyes because this is the kind of nonsense the next generation of social justice warriors, community organizers and other destroyers of Western Civilization are learning under their esteemed professors.
Fortunately, E. Calvin Beisner and the Cornwall Alliance have provided a succinct refutation of Professor Cole’s absurd claim. For a little background on Beisner and his impressive credentials see here. Of interest to my fellow Scripturalists, Beisner has also lectured on the epistemology of Gordon Clark.
The Cornwall Alliance is “a coalition of theologians, pastors, ministry leaders, scientists, economists, policy experts, and committed laymen, the Cornwall Alliance is an evangelical voice promoting environmental stewardship and economic development built on Biblical principles.” You can support the work of the Cornwall Alliance here.
“What’s “a far more deadly gas” than the Sarin that Syrian President Bashar al Assad used to kill his own citizens—prompting President Trump to respond with a missile attack?
Or so says The Nation. According to “The Other Poison Gas Killing Syrians: Carbon Dioxide Emissions,” by University of Michigan Professor of History Juan Cole, “If Trump and his cronies really cared about children killed by noxious gases, they wouldn’t be trying to spew ever more CO2 into the atmosphere.”
We could laugh at the ignorance of the author, the fact checkers (if any), and the editors. Or we could rage at their dishonesty. Or we could cry at the ignorance of trusting but deceived readers. Maybe we should do all three.
Time for an elementary lesson in toxicology….”
