Is Climate Change Real?

Of course it is, God made it that way. Every day I look outside my window I see wind, rain, hot days and cool days, cold months and sweltering hot months, hot years and cool years, warm decades and cooler ones. When I was a kid in the 1970s, my school teachers were telling us we were in for another ice-age if we did not stop pollution – oh yes – this is REALLY what they were telling us 6-year-olds back in 1977. But you can’t find any information on this for love nor money on the web.

Of course climate change is real

And then there was the change from ‘global warming’ to ‘climate change’ as if that alone is not enough to raise eyebrows amongst everyone – scientist or not, but of course this was done because they too recognised that even though the temperature may be rising over all (or not as the case may be) the word ‘warming’ should never be applied to this subject as even they recognise it’s not continuously warming and that there are times of cooling in between.

It should always be ok to question – science is not consensus, assumption or voting

And then we know that The Thames River in London just a few hundred years ago was practically continuously covered in ice for some time – things were cooler, and now the climate has changed. So am I a climate change denier? No – the climate is always changing. So for me the jury is out – not least because I am not a scientist and do not have access to of means to really understand the science. So I’ll keep my mouth shut on whether or not the whole thing is baloney and just add that in a 1975 interview, Margaret Thatcher – love her or hate her – warned us about the new tide of consensus taking precedence over what is actually fact or fiction. In other words, if enough people think something is right – it is – a ridiculous concept but one that seems to be happening here. Jesus said the gate to truth is always narrow so whilst that may not apply here we should at least head her warning at the least.

We need to listen to both sides

But what happens when a really clever scientist – one who does understand the figures, and the funding of climate research says we need not to assume that the scientists or the science is always correct? Even I know assumptions are not science, and that proof is actually not possible in most cases – only a best estimate based on the numbers and evidence. And often what is ‘proved’ in science turns out to be ‘disproved’ later. Well such a man is in the video posted below. Whatever the truth – we all need to look after the planet period, but be careful not worship it.

So I am not able to say one way or the other. I do know that vast amounts of money changes hands in this field between companies, scientific research centres (and probably politicians) and more and more will be doing so as climate change becomes a bigger and bigger field of research, and industry gets more and more involved with solving the ‘problem’. See what you make of the scientist below and as ever I suggest watching not just this, but videos by those saying the opposite, and those in between. After all we Christians should never fear and embrace the truth – whichever side the chips fall, even when its not we want to hear.

How To Tell Which Politicians are Honest and Genuine and Which are Not

Ever wanted to know which politicians are telling the truth as they see it, or to the best of their knowledge at least, and which are plain liars, fake, falsify truth and are dishonest to themselves and others? It seems that most voters don’t care – and are more interested in the veneer and the ‘speak’ rather than the integrity of the person. This is how they sometimes get away with the unthinkable and often what the every day person would never get away with. In any case, why is the question in politics always reduced to the false idea of left or right, and not wrong or right?

Real and convicted or fake and phony?

But is this even remotely possible to tell which politicians are honest and which are fake careerists or somewhere in between? It is actually I believe. All we need to do – though it can be quite a long process to watch all the necessary videos, is to watch the amazing YouTube channel of a body language expert pick apart interviews on our loved and loathed politicians. You know – the eye movements, eye contact, twitches and sitting position etc.

This expert is careful to point out that body language analysis is not an exact science – but it is a great indicator and can be very accurate

As it happens, most of the conclusions this body language expert comes to – and I must point out that by her own admission they are her opinions on these politicians – match my gut instincts on all the folks she analyses. Does that mean I have what the Bible calls the gift of discernment?.. I’m not sure, but either way, her body language videos are a must watch for anyone that is serious about voting in politicians and members of congress and leaders that are honest, or at the very least believe in what they say, regardless of whether what they are saying is the best policy.

At least we can use this resource (for perhaps as long as they are unaware such channels exist!) to see who has at the least – conviction, and who is just an actor – or a mix of both, and to what extent. Anyway enough of this, here’s the channel. Bookmark it and anytime you want to know what a particular person is really like underneath their political veneer or not as the case may be.

Is This The World’s First Mountain Bike?

OK – a bit of fun in this time of unbelievable turmoil around the world. Correct me if I’m wrong but isn’t this the world’s first mountain bike?!! And I love the horn he has on the seat-tube and the pipe hanging out of his mouth. Now that’s what I call an off-roader! I wonder if he has disc-brakes to cope with those monstrous balloons. But I wouldn’t like to have to fork out for a new tyre – cost an arm and a leg!

Elvis Autograph? Proof He Really Must be Alive!

OK this is a little off-topic, but I came across an article on BBC today that said a book was being actioned with Elvis’ ‘autograph’ on it. Now I happen to have a good knowledge of all things Elvis as I grew up listening to him, have read several books on his life, music and foibles, and am even partial to the odd karaoke impression (odd being the operative word).

I hate to see people being fleeced

The thing is, am I going nuts, or am I seeing something that no one has spotted? Elvis was sighted and photographed carrying a copy of the book in question to be auctioned in 1976 (Google it) and the book or a similar copy that also passed through his hands is said to have been autographed by him for someone or something or other.

Am I going nuts or is this thing a fake?..

The problem is (unless I am dafter than I thought) that on the opposite side of the page where Elvis has ‘signed’ the book – are printed a list of ‘also available’ movies – several of which were not even written when the singer was alive (he died in 1977) – let alone made into films! For example The Final Conflict was written in 1980 and came out as a bad film in 1981.

But I’m sure I have got this all wrong – and someone somewhere will correct me on my belief that this ‘Elvis Presley autograph’ is a very possibly fake. Either way I just sent a note to the auctioneers as I hate to see people fleeced and thought I might spare someone some embarrassment if nothing else. Here is the article;

Here is the wikipedia article that gives the dates of the also available ‘films’;


From xyz & Son (the auctioneer house)

to me

Dear Edward,
Thank you for that, I will withdraw it and return it to the owner.

Kind Regards



So there you have it. There was I wondering if there was any point in letting the auctioneer know – and by doing so it looks like I may have saved him, or the potential buyer a few thousand quid!

New Bibles Are More Numerous That Windows Updates!

“Warning – important notice; Your Bible is out of date – please patch your existing Bible version with our new improved and updated version! We have had our most knowledgable scholar with an impressive list of extensive credentials re-interpret and correct the texts so YOU can get the most out of our all new translation!

You must do this now – as our new Bible version includes essential updates, vulnerability and bug fixes, corrections to textual and translation errors, patches to stay safe from new security threats, plus a host of new features you can’t do without!

It’s our firm belief that the original 50+ scholars that were masterfully pitched head to head by King James and made accountable not only to each other – but more importantly to him – to stop personal agendas entering the translation – were not really that bright after all! Let’s face it, most of them only spoke multiple languages and had years and years of experience of ancient texts – much better to get 1 or 2 modern folks that have been to Bible college to re-translate everything, and hey – if they alter the text enough, we can hopefully get the copyright needed to sell it – and make a few bucks to support our ministry in the process!

Please note; Prosperity Church will no longer support your existing Bible translation after June 31st, so be sure to get your new and updated version! It’s yours free for a small one-time donation of just $200 to our ministry! Comes in classic leather bound and gold leaf versions, or shiny new modern name-it-and-claim-it flavours!”
