    Religious ideology

    Religious ideoligy. The fact that we kill each other over religion, and have for centuries, is clearly the greatest threat and has been proven over and over and over and over.

    I would add that, potentially, the biggest threat may come from space. If an asteroid was to hit the earth...end game. But that’s not man made.

    •  what an idiotic canard - asteroids! (0+ / 0-)

      Of course if a big asteroid hit it would be catastrophic - that is not the point.  There is no evidence that one will hit any time in the forseeable future. These things are tracked in case you didn't know it.

      On climate change the science is real and the threat is imminent.  There is a difference.

      You right wingers like to throw red herrings and idiotic non-sequiturs into every debate.  It is tiresome.

        I do know they track that and there are some tracking right now, best anyone can tell. As a matter of fact, NASA has just released a findings that one they thought may hit earth in 2019 most likely won't. That's good news.

        I see no difference other than the obvious man made Global Warming is contrived and Asteroids on track to strike the earth isn't.

          evidence that global warming is not manmade, and you have yet to provide a single piece of evidence that an asteroid is a more likely threat.
