A new cache of emails between the various well known scientists involved in “climate science,” were released in the last two or three days —and the story they tell is of a group of people working as hard as they can to protect their reputations and relationships, even at the cost of truth.
I am not convinced that the “truth” is always worth reaching if it is at the cost of damaged personal relationships. –Crowley, quoted by Tallbloke
Will gravity pull you down to the ground, resulting in your death, if you jump from a tall building? Of course. But if you really loved the person that was about to jump, you wouldn’t tell them, right —no point in ruining the relationship with the truth.
Will a bus run you over and kill you? Certainly. But if you really loved someone who was just about to step out in front of a bus, you’d care about your relationship with them more than you care about the truth.
Will drugs ruin your life and kill you? There’s plenty of evidence to back this one up. But if you really loved the person misusing drugs, you’d just tell them how wonderful they look, and chat about the weather, so as not to break the relationship.
Why is it we can see the absurdity of such propositions when they involve life and limb, but not when they involve less immediately impacting truths? Are the lives of those millions who will die on the altar of “environmental sustainability,” really worth sacrificing to maintain the relationship between two scientists who will never feel the impact of their decisions?
This single statement sums up an entire worldview —a worldview that is contrary to everything Christianity stands for, and everything that makes living in this world even remotely possible. Truth is truth. Those who deny the truth will get neither the relationship or the truth, in the end.
