Tell that to the judges that put people to death on daily based on DNA evidence. Some science is wrong. Some is never wrong.

Regardless if you believe or not. 2 earthquakes in nj in 2 years and MULTIPLE big storms hit the east coast. There is no doubt the earth is changing very quickly. Ice caps melting ect. If the sea level raised as little as 5ft I think NY Boston Florida are all under water. GONE

What Does Hurricane Sandy Show us about Shoreline Change?

Contrarians argue that Hurricane Sandy isn't proof of climate change. But local scientists say the recent storm offers more damning evidence that Rhode Island's weather and landscape are undergoing a long-term transformation — one with a steep cost in dollars and human health.

Perhaps the most significant and indisputable fact is that the Atlantic Ocean is warmer, so much so that a late-October storm didn't lose steam over what should have been a colder sea. Instead, Sandy gained speed and strength as it headed north and became an enormous force of destruction.

Sea surface temperature is one of the most important variables, said John Merrill, professional of oceanography at the University of Rhode Island's School of Oceanography.

Overall, water temperatures across the eastern seaboard exceeded the threshold that incites chaotic weather and powerful hurricanes. In some locations, the warmer water might be cyclical, in others regions the warming appears permanent. The temperature of Narragansett Bay, for instance, has increased an average of 3.6 degrees since the 1960s, according to studies.

The water temperature off New Jersey was 5 to 10 degrees above normal this year. Determining an average increase for the entire Atlantic Ocean is trickier, but the tropical regions where hurricanes form are also in a warming trend.

In addition to intensifying weather, warmer water expands, causing sea levels to rise. The Northeast is considered a hotspot, with sea levels climbing four times faster than the global average. During the past 100 years, sea level has risen a foot in Narragansett Bay, according to studies. URI researchers expect it to jump 3 to 5 feet by the end of the century.

The earth has always gone through it's cycles of change. The weather changes over time. We have ice ages, etc. This all has absolutely nothing to do with the Mayan calendar.

The Hindus have a similar calendar that is based on astrological phases that is within 4 years of the Mayan's. That calendar started over 4 years ago.

Surely, you're not suggesting the Hindu calendar is as advanced or accurate as the Mayan calendar. This has been confirmed by scientists.

Absolutely. People tend to forget that 100 million years ago much of what would become the mid-western United States was a tropical climate; much warmer than today. And there was a huge, shallow, sea covering what would be many states.

The last (of many) ice ages ended maybe 10,000 years ago. The earth has seen numerous hot & cold cycles over the the last few billion years. Natural phenomenon has a much larger influence on our planet than anything man has done. One large volcano can reduce global temperatures by two degrees.

The end of the world (as we know it) will come when; 1, a large asteroid crashes into the planet, or 2, when the sun reaches the end of its life in 5-10 billion years.

I'm not worried.
