Here is a good article discussing so-called fundamentalists’ tendency to yearn for a return to a ‘golden age’ that in fact never existed (revisionism). I know this is true in politics as well as theology but I also would like to point out the other end of the mythical spectrum. Extremist Liberals (for lack of a better term) seem to have a desire to make the future look impossibly bleak; here is an example.
Please do not take the link to the last article as my doubting climate change; I don’t doubt it. Neither, do I doubt the destructive results on our environment that pollution has had on our environment. I only desire to point out that both ‘sides’ or ‘perspectives’ have ridiculous rhetorical tendencies and it is ignorant to act like this is not the case.
