    Please be trolling.

    Don't worry, I actually don't like most death metal. Just creating a new "workout" playlist with a crapload of death metal on it (just downloaded, ahaha).

    There's a guy in my church who thinks apparently global warming was invented by Satan to distract congregations from preaching Jesus by making them preach environmentalism. How the bleep am I supposed to argue with him?

    That's rasist.

    Just tell him that Jesus would preach environmentalism, and find some random crap somewhere to justify that.

    Won't work. Part of his beef is with congregations who preach "Jesus and X" and otherwise hijack Jesus to support other causes.
    FWIW, he's also seized on the "30 years ago lots of people said we were going into an ice age" canard. He is distressingly vague on who 'lots of people' are.

    I think his ability to quote scripture is greater than mine, so that won't work either.

    Snipe, man, SNIPE!

    I found an awesome Soviet Red Army badge to buy and sow onto the front of my ushanka, but I don't know if it's possible to get it. :sad:

    EDIT: x-post.

    I go to church because I'm Christian.

    I'll throw in a suggestion that he got his figures from a djinni. :p

    FWIW, Norway has a State Church. It's far from 97% atheist. More like 97% wouldn't join a Christian Crusade.

    I wasn't the first to have the idea of owning the whole universe in the "world empire" thread. :(

    Indeed. I reckon they are getting a new Stig, hence why he was revealed and he apparantly trashed the test track. But that's my opinion, anything can happen on Top Gear. :p

    Why do you need to argue with him?

    Anyways, doesn't it say in Genesis something about how we are only stewards of the earth? The entire universe belongs to God, not us, so yeah it matters what we do with it.

    Although if he admits that environmentalism is important but denies anthropic global warming then I don't think there are any specifically religious arguments anywhere that will help.
