I just find this really, really funny.
In Exodus 3:13,14, we are introduced to the name of God.
Then Moses said to God, “Behold, I am going to the sons of Israel, and I will say to them, ‘The God of your fathers has sent me to you.’ Now they may say to me, ‘What is His name?’ What shall I say to them?” 14God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM”; and He said, “Thus you shall say to the sons of Israel, ‘I AM has sent me to you.'”
God is I AM.
Jesus echoed this, reflecting his divinity in his series of I AM statements.
“Before Abraham was, I AM”
“I AM the bread of life.”
You get the idea.
Well, there is no such thing as an atheist. Everyone worships something. It may be themselves or something else. Right now, the current fixation and God replacement is science itself. In particular, to process the divinity of this god, the left needs its own I AM.
They have it. From the leftwing Vox we get this:
Basically, it’s difficult to predict anything, especially regarding sprawling systems like the global economy and atmosphere, because everything depends on everything else. There’s no fixed point of reference.
Grappling with this kind of uncertainty turns out to be absolutely core to climate policymaking. Climate nerds have attempted to create models that include, at least in rudimentary form, all of these interacting economic and atmospheric systems. They call these integrated assessment models, or IAMs, and they are the primary tool used by governments and international bodies to gauge the threat of climate change. IAMs are how policies are compared and costs are estimated.
Integrated Assessment Models or I AM’s. They, unlike the real God, are notoriously unreliable. But there you have it.
Christians have the Great I Am.
Atheists have an Integrated Assessment Model, their own I AM.
