BoM climate report – sheesh, it’s hot in here…

By astrojax 13 February 2014 314

BOM annual climate report
The bureau of meteorology’s 2013 annual climate report [http://www.bom.gov.au/climate/annual_sum/2013/AnClimSum2013_HR1.0.pdf] is now out, and shows sunny canberra had a +2.2 degrees anomaly above average temperatures, during what was australia’s hottest year on record.  this was the greatest anomaly for any of our capital cities – canberra’s getting warmer more quickly.  and our rainfall was some 14% below average, with fewest days with rainfall.

does this mean we’ll get a real surf beach here soon?

I never said their was evidence that the parting of the Red Sea happened; I said it was chronicled.

someone writing something down does not make it a chronicle (narnia excepted).

you are a stupid man. if this is the best you can muster as an ‘argument’ i suggest you go visit monty python’s studios… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RDjCqjzbvJY

Stupid is a bit harsh. Perhaps we could call him special, so fucking special, not unlike the Radiohead song….

so what the hell is he doing here? he don’t belong here…

You bloody elitist thinkers not only want to own the truth, you also want to own the website.
No wonder The RiotACT can’t attract more advertisers.

elitist thinker? wants to own the truth? jesus h christ with a stick, get a life. who the fuck are you to be making such absurd statements and wanting to be taken seriously (if not, then perhaps don’t continue to post here, find a comedy site or something. good luck with that…)?

I think it’s got more to do with the fact that idiots like you are allowed to post their moronic, ignorant and incorrect thoughts instead of being moderated off the site.

Wow! Someone who believes lions live in the back of wardrobes is calling me a stupid man?

The cat did it said :

Umm, the Moses/Red Sea thing is not ‘chronicled’- there’s only the claims of the Bible. And like they say, the main problem with the Bible is that it doesn’t have a bibliography …

There is no evidence it happened. For a start, thanks to an old mistranslation, the Old Testament should refer to the ‘Reed Sea’, usually identified as Lake Timsah, not the Red Sea. Escaping across a reedy swamp doesn’t sound half as impressive, and wouldn’t have given Charlton Heston nearly as much opportunity for wooden acting.

More damaging though, is the total lack of support for any other aspect of the Passover/Exodus story- no mass enslavement, no 40 years wandering in the desert, no triumphal conquest of the homeland etc. For all the enthusiastic archaeology carried out by Bible Societies and others, no hard evidence has been found. What the evidence does point to is a much later assembling of foundation myths, when the minor-but-ambitious polity of Judea wrote itself a glowing past.

Reed Sea. Very interesting. Hadn’t heard that one. Or, the tip of the Red Sea and a tsunami sucked the water out – actually that would explain the subsequent crash onto the chariots, just for conjecture, it’s a nice fit, and would amplify wonderfully into the v-shape. (But no geological evidence?) In any case, it’s not exactly chronicled as such.

Not sure the rest of it. The main pyramids probably not by slaves, but slaves were not uncommon. Same with war or other disasters that give rise to people fleeing. Plagues and so on, crop failures… sounds like an ecological or financial melt down to me. Who knows what happened.

I only brought it up to make dungfungus focus on how long-ago information can be obtained and with what accuracy and so on, and then get him to quit queue jumping his other disorderly ideologies onto this here climate thread. (It triggered a mess, the topics intertwined in the end).

And, I wanted to know how bible characters in these situations might square up with a Christian view.

I do not know what the motive was for dungfungus to have me point out the religion of the people in the Moses story, but I handed it back. And left it pretty much at that.

I was trying to plug this into that and see if it sparks one way or another. But just can’t tell, with some, how it works, why they persist with a completely untenable stand. Probably just a bunch of mischief, dust kicking, etc. Some strange stuff, too.
Ah well. It’s been fun. Sort of.

I never said their was evidence that the parting of the Red Sea happened; I said it was chronicled. The bible as I understand it was based on ancient scrolls and maybe scrolling is different to chronicling (or chroniclising?).
Your expanded take on the lack of support about events in being a “much later assembling of myths” has a stong parallel with the flawed concept of mad made climate change and just as Hollywood made a fictional movie about the parting of the Red Sea and the exodus, Al Gore also made a “dodgy documentary” about “something inconvenient”.
I think the Hollywood movie has won more awards than the other one. It has more credibility as well.

Ahh, “Risk Management”.
Another scam invented by people who have never run a business but claim a business must have a risk management plan, a strategic plan etc etc.
The only real “risk management” I have been involved in was when I ran a medium size business. I ensured the fridge was full of cold beer on Friday morning so the Friday evening piss-up could proceed seamlessly.

past tense; so why did this ‘medium sized’ business fail – unmanaged risks? [or are you living the life of riley on the proceeds from the sale of same..?]

Please read what I said. There is nothing in what I said to indicate the business failed.
