    Okay. So, it is wrong to hate people. Seems like the Christian way to lead ones life. It is the way I try to live. You?

    You give the devil the benefit of law. If you want a free society, it's what you have to do. Take away the freedom, your society won't remain Christian for long.

    I was using the word "Christian" as a generic term. I don't care if one is Muslim, Jewish etc. Hating someone just just because of their appearance or what they worship, is wrong.

    The point is, once hatred (or hate speech) becomes a crime, it pretty much opens the door for the government to oppress people. Now anyone in disagreement with the ruling class is classified as a criminal.

    Case in point: someone who was lecturing about Islam's treatment of women was detained by police, his property confiscated.

    Allowing hatred to rule give rise to cowardly groups like the KKK and white supremacists.

    So who determines and defines what is "hated" , hate speech or "cowardly groups" and why should they have the power to do so ? Also are these definitions static or fluid that can change as deemed necessary?

    [QUOTE=SalesServiceGuy;576395]If there is one American institution that I believe in it is NASA. They conclude that the earth's climate is warming and likely due to human activities.

    "Multiple studies published in peer-reviewed scientific journals1 show that 97 percent or more of actively publishing climate scientists agree: Climate-warming trends over the past century are extremely likely due to human activities. In addition, most of the leading scientific organizations worldwide have issued public statements endorsing this position."

    The 97 % that you quoted is extremely misleading ,academically dishonest and dangerous. For example, if the scientific journals are only receptive to those that believe warming is due to human activates, then they will only publish supporting scientists.

    A long complex read that I knew nothing about and another topic that has to be considered in climate change or at least environmental change caused by mankind.

    " In the past 200 years alone, ocean water has become 30 percent more acidic—faster than any known change in ocean chemistry in the last 50 million years."

    I think anyone with a semblance of intelligence and compassion knows what "hatred" is. To hate a person just because their skin is a different colour, or because they worship a different "God" than you is ridiculous and pointless.
