I was totally bemused this week by the media. It treated the Mufti, who said that the drought was due to the Australian people not praying to god enough, like a moron. Then it treated the great gob of Christians in Canberra who were trying to break the drought by praying to god more, like sane individuals.

Is it against the law for anybody in the media put 2 and 2 together now either they are all morons or none of them are you will have to guess what I think.

Pretty similar to those who interpret every weather event to climate change. You can be sure that every cyclone, storm, rainfall, drought, sunny days will fit into the doomsday GW prophets theology. Saw a laugable example of this again last night on 4 Corners. Heaven help anyone who questions such water tight theology!

How does the Mufti explain the tsunami in Islamic Indonesia and Southern Thailand or the famine and genocide in Sudan. I don't think God has a hand in this drought most of the blame can be directed at global warming and the denuding of our continent by land clearing, and grazing by sheep, cattle and goats. I feel a bare landscape must cause more updraught of hot air and draw in more dry cold air with the prevailing winds from the southern ocean. I am no climatologist but at least it is a more likely scenario than the Mufti's.

There are updrafts of hot air and within the area encompassed by the borders of NSW the main upward movements are above Macquarrie Street and Canberra.
The doomsayers seem to have given up 'Global Warming' in favour of 'Climate Change', this way they can have a dollar each way.

Bring on the Sizzling Ice Age.

It is a pity people did not read the Biblical text. Jesus said rain falls on the just and the unjust alike, it has very little connection to ones belief in or prayers to God. Prayers to God merely expresses our human concerns - drought, fire, famine, earthquake and storm are natural events that test the stuff of the character of man to manage his environment and survive resillient. Real prayers of concern help us to act wisely and make provision for our needs in time of testing. Prayer or lack of it has no direct connection to the weather, how we react because of the adverse environment does affect our actions and attitudes.
