Kate McMillan: “Frighteningly Ignorant”

Hot Fur

“This kook must be one of those people who likes to wear a fur coat on a hot summer day.” — P.Z. Myers

This was in response to the original post at SDA that claiming that “the actual trapping of heat cannot raise an object’s temperature in the first place. It only slows down heat loss.”

As usual, the comments at Pharyngula are hilarious. Here’s Mark who says: “It’s just creationist science taken to the next step. Since evolution is impossible because of the 2nd Law of thermodynamics, we know there is no external source of heat (the sun is simply an illusion, so don’t mention it). Therefore, trapping the existing heat on earth cannot increase earth’s temperature. Simple, right?”
