    You think it’s hot now, wait until global warming starts to effect our existence.

    Because the Earth is closer to the Sun in summer.
    Because that's when everyone turns on their air conditioner, and hot air comes out the back.
    Because the mainstream media CLAIMS it's hot, but I just went out back last night and it wasn't even 70 degrees.
    Because China is dumping their heat in the US via all the Chinatowns. That's why so many container ships come from China; they are shipping heat.

    (The real reason is that climate change is slowly making summers warmer, but what fun is that, eh?)

    Why England, Europe, North America claim 50 degree?
    How to survive?

    For a moment... just the briefest moment... I thought you were offering what you thought was a serious answer!

    I once saw a poll that said that 48% of people in the US think the seasons are caused by the Earth getting closer to the Sun.

    Some other interesting misconceptions: (from a 2012 NSF poll)
    26% think the Sun goes around the Earth
    49% thought that antibiotics work against viruses
    52% thought that we did NOT evolve from an earlier, more primitive animal

    (Following is strictly off-topic but so what that's the norm practice at SF). Such stupid plebs! Mass sterilization perhaps? Anyway concerning that last highlighted point. I agree there is a progression from more primitive types. But that is merely an intriguing fact from my perspective. Which posits a God as creator of original organic life and director of its subsequent development into multicellular complex organisms. But given the total lack of any believable 'Divine Revelation' I have only a hope there is some kind of afterlife for at least a 'worthy' subset of morally accountable humans.

    You on the other hand have declared your position as a 'universalist' - meaning all humans will eventually be saved to some kind of presumably non-physical eternal paradise existence.
    That seems highly problematic from my pov. Consistency wise. For starters where does one draw the line between pre-human morally unaccountable and human morally accountable? Further, how does the pain, fear, brutality as undoubted regular features of pre-human existence, square with perfect moral virtue of the 'universalist' loving God you evidently believe in? This could be expanded to include sentient animals but let's not go there. Please avoid trite answers if responding at all.

    Humans can survive up to 60 degree?

    If you keep reading and quoting such nonsense, you may be likely to develop a serious psychological impediment.

    ......................
    latest poll
    39% think your name should be VonBill
    of those
    57% think it means that your mother or father was named Bill
    and
    68% think it means that your ancestors came from a village named Bill
    (some are a tad conflicted)

    Nightmare scenario is that the poll respondents are right and we are wrong.

    I always thought billvon was a reference to oblivion.

    Yep. And people really eat corn on the cob vertically; it's just the media that makes us think that it's eaten horizontally.
    "Billvon oblivion" is the name of my new band.

    No need to wait. It's happening already.

    Not where I live it isn't. That's just a northern hemisphere thing, but guess what? We have summer in the southern hemisphere, too!
    That's what's called the urban heat island effect.
    It sounds like you don't understand the concept of an average temperature. Are you confused about whether global warming is happening?
    Oh, sorry. Is this a parody?
    That'll teach me to always read the whole post before firing off a response. (Mostly, I already do, but utter nonsense in the first line can be a trigger to assume that the rest is probably also going to be garbage.)

    Evolution doesn't have a direction, you know. It's not teleological.
    Poor reasoning.
    Why?

    For short enough periods. A good Finnish sauna ranges from 65° to 90°, and that is combined with high humidity.
