    It's like with everything else they try and make us believe..they truly think if they repeat over and over people will believe it.

    And fact is that if they repeat it over and over, people DO believe it. Even after you show them proof that it's not true.

    The science of eclipses is a math problem. Very complex math formulas are used to not predict but to tell when eclipses will occur. The travel of celestial objects is a constant and when the math is correct we know when and where an eclipse will happen. Climate change is based on variables that are in constant change. The best they can do is gather enough data to possibly get a pattern that will provide a possible result. Math is an exact science that the formulas give us the same answer every time. Climate change is at best a collection of data points (most often selectively picked and manipulated) that will give the desired answer depending what answer is desired.

    I was thinking of a similar response, but you said it better than I could have.
