Denial Watch: The Bible Says Climate Change Can't Happen

I re-checked the date of this post to see if it was the 1st April, but no, it seems it is not. You could not make this shit up; Climate change can't be real because it would contradict the Bible:

When God finished His creation, "God saw all that He had made, and behold, it was very good" (Genesis 1:31). Do you think he would have judged a fragile system biased by unidirectional feedbacks toward destruction that way? No, He would not. Indeed, the global destruction of the Flood required His supernatural intervention (Genesis 6-8), after which He promised Himself, "I will never again curse the ground on account of man ...; and I will never again destroy every living thing, as I have done. While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease" (Genesis 8:21-22)-the repeated pairs of opposites being the poetic device called merism, implying that God had committed Himself to ensuring that all the cycles needed for human (and other) thriving would continue.

It is so wrong I don't know where to start. Wow; now we have already seen points in the Earth's where life nearly died, that were not Noah's flood. But it also commits the basic fallacy of thinking the planet is designed for us and that climate change threatens the planet - it does not, life and the planet will continue; just not in this form.

Still this does give a single bight spot in the huge dark could of climate change; that when it happens, the Bible is proved wrong. Hurah!
