Why we should do nothing about global warming

This is from PZ Myers' blog (credit to Planet Atheism for bringing it to my attention), and I want it on my page, too.

It's a letter from some guy, about global warming. Notice that his name is Butch. Check it out.

First they try to make us believe in the “big-bang” theory; then the “millions of years” theory; then the “we all came from monkeys” theory or even the “sea” theory.

Let’s get into the real solution as to what happened and read the Bible. Genesis will explain how it all was created.

Now for the global warming story Al Gore and others are pushing on us; it’s time to read Genesis to Revelation in the Bible.

When God sent the rain on this Earth for 40 days and nights, all this water had to go someplace so the Earth would be dry again.

Remember, God is the Creator and controls the universe.

God tilted the Earth from its original position and caused all the excess water to rush to the poles, and there he instantly froze the water into the ice formations that exist today.

Time is ticking down on God’s time clock. With all the nuclear bombs that are made and stored for the fast-emerging last battle, this Earth would burn up when these nuclear bombs are set off.

We are not creating global warming – God is tipping the Earth back to its original position on its axis and thus getting all this ice to get ready to move and extinguish the nuclear destructive fires man will create.

Time is running out, folks. Jesus is coming soon. Do you know him as your personal Savior?

So what should we conclude?

1. The writer doesn't know how gravity works.

2. He doesn't know that we'd be able to see it clearly if Earth's axis was being re-tilted. The most obvious way to tell would be because the stars of the north would no longer form circles around Polaris (north star).

3. He has no education in science at all.

4. He doesn't believe we need to solve problems, because of faith in his god and Bible. This also demonstrated why it is a bad idea to teach creationism to school children.

5. He thinks the Bible requires us to have a nuclear war at some point, so he should never be elected/declared leader of any country which has nukes.

6. I need to bring back the 'Raving nutjob' tag.

Then again, it could be a joke. I'll have to make a post about Poe's Law.
