    Default More marginal, believing in Santa at age 7 or not believing in climate change at 72?

    "Former longtime CBS News anchor Dan Rather on Tuesday knocked President Trump after the president's Christmas Eve phone call with a 7-year-old went viral due to Trump asking a 7-year-old girl if she believed in Santa Claus."

    "Rather used Trump's language from the call in which the president asked if it was "marginal" for a 7-yeard-old to believe in Santa."

    "Following Trump's line of questioning, Rather hit the president over his stance on climate change, questioning which was more "marginal:" The belief in Santa Claus after the age of 7, or not believing in man-made climate change and its effects on the world."

    "Just a thought: Which should be considered more 'marginal' - believing in Santa at age 7 or not believing in climate change at age 72?" Rather tweeted."

    There's no evidence for either, is there, anchovies?

    BTW, didn't Dan Blather get fired for spreading fake news?

    Teaching children to believe in imaginary figures such as Santa, and relious imaginary figures such as jesus, the god, and other sky fairies, is child abuse!

    The rest of the world is coming to understand the nonsense religious beliefs are and are moving toward modern science and evolution much faster than is the US.

    America, the land of the 6000 year old earthers! How shameful!
    Bringing reform and decency from Canada, one forum at a time.

    Have you shared this belief with the mullahs who rule Iran and Afghanistan?

    Don believes in the climate stuff enough to have built a climate change wall to protect his golf course in Scotland.

    We have had a military occupation up and running in Afghanistan for nearly 2 decades, surely someone has, we're exceptional.

    That seems kinda funny given all those Scientists and even the likes of NASA believe there is enough evidence, but it you are going to believe it is all a Chinese hoax cause some guy who has zero credibility on just about anything says so, all the evidence in the world ain't going to change your mind

    Fired or not, he sure got it right this time

    So you admit he was fired for spreading fake news but you revere him anyway.

    Post the proof that "global warming" is man-made, anchovies.

    I'll understand if you can't, of course.

    While I agree with you on imaginary friends, I like to see some evidence the rest of the world is ditching religion. Can you provide some evidence?

    It's not a chinese hoax. It's a UN hoax. The IPCC is a fucking joke. NASA and NOAA continually make adjustments to the data. If history is a guide, every temp measurement taken today will be adjusted downward at some point in the future
