Here’s a delightfully idiotic rant from faith-healing fraud Cindy Jacobs, claiming that she “prophecied” that 2011 would have terrible weather patterns and disasters because of Obama’s “anti-Biblical” policies. She says that 2011 was “the worst year for weather-related disasters in our history, and I was mocked everywhere for that because they don’t understand spiritual things.” Oh, and it’s going to get worse.
A tale of two “prophecies.” Jacobs and her fellow wingnuts claim that God sends bad weather and that extreme weather events are going to increase because of “anti-Biblical” policies; scientists say that extreme weather events are increasing because of global warming. The former can provide no evidence at all, or even any logical argument, for that conclusion; the latter can point to the warmer oceans and demonstrate the relationship to stronger atmospheric conditions and a whole range of negative outcomes.
I’ve got an idea. Let’s give Cindy Jacobs her own weather report and let her predict bad weather based on faith, and we’ll compare that to the predictions of the National Weather Service. I’ll bet every cent I have that the latter will be far more accurate.
