Top Scientist Advocates Mass Culling of Human Population

Top Scientist Advocates Mass Culling 90% Of Human Population
Fellow professors and scientists applause and roar approval at genocidal population control agenda.
A top scientist gave a speech to the Texas Academy of Science last month in which he advocated the need to exterminate 90% of the population through the airborne ebola virus.
Pianka's speech was ordered to be kept off the record before it began as cameras were turned away and hundreds of students, scientists and professors sat in attendance.
Saying the public was not ready to hear the information presented, Pianka began by exclaiming, We're no better than bacteria!, as he jumped into a doomsday malthusian rant about overpopulation destroying the earth.
Standing in front of a slide of human skulls, Pianka gleefully advocated airborne ebola as his preferred method of exterminating the necessary 90% of humans, choosing it over AIDS because of its faster kill period. Ebola victims suffer the most tortuous deaths imaginable as the virus kills by liquefying the internal organs.
Pianka then cited the Peak Oil fraud as another reason to initiate global genocide. And the fossil fuels are running out, he said, so I think we may have to cut back to two billion, which would be about one-third as many people.
Later, the scientist welcomed the potential devastation of bird flu and spoke glowingly of China's enforced one child policy, before zestfully commenting, We need to sterilize everybody on the Earth.
At the end of Pianka's speech the audience erupted not to a chorus of boos and hisses but to a raucous reception of applause and cheers as audience members clammered to get close to the scientist to ask him follow up questions. Pianka was later presented with a distinguished scientist award by the Academy. Pianka is no crackpot. He has given lectures to prestigious universities worldwide.

One horrified observer was able to make notes on the speech and our gratitude goes to Forrest M. Mims for bringing this sickening display to the attention of the world.

Email Pianka : pianka@mail.utexas.edu ...enabling him to receive your feedback about his wish that you and your entire family die.

3. Pianka says he's being misquoted. A transcript of his speech can
be found below (I have no idea what kind of site this is. I googled and went with the first link):

http://magic-city-news.com/article_5887.shtml

<edit>

I do not bear any ill will toward humanity. However, I am convinced that the world WOULD clearly be much better off without so many of us. Simply stopping the destruction of rainforests would help mediate some current planetary ills, including the release of previously unknown pathogens. The ancient Chinese curse may you live in interesting times comes to mind we are living in one of the most interesting times humans have ever experienced. For example, consider the manifold effects of global warming. We need to make a transition to a sustainable world. If we dont, nature is going to do it for us in ways of her own choosing. By definition, these ways will not be ours and they wont be much fun. Think about that.

If you dont believe me, read Richard Heinbergs The Partys Over, Sean Nees one page essay The great chain of being in Nature (2005, vol.435:page 429), and Jared Diamond's Guns, Germs, and Steel.

6. Why am I not surprised he gave this speech in Texas?
"Like a whole other country". Yep, that's Texas alright! :eyes: This guy is NUTZ, and he found a willing, accepting crowd in the state of Texas. Assholes like this guy have been around for decades and they'll always find an ignorant crowd to preach to. How would these folks feel if they or their family members were "selected" to die from that horrible disease? But they don't think that far ahead, do they? :eyes:

It might help if you'd read what he actually posted instead of getting your ideas from Freepers.

Crazy bugger
I guess evolution isn't fast enough for this nutjob. A future pandemic is inevitable, so why not just calm down and wait for it instead of ranting in front of a bunch of Texas students about hastening things along. It's like he just read Stephen King's "The Stand" and went... EUREKA!!

It's scary enough that other nutjobs are out there with potential access to these germs. Maybe not in the CDC, but surely in other countries.

7. Professor Pianka denies this story
http://www.kxan.com/Global/story.asp?S=4720390

Forrest M. Mims is an interesting character. Some may recall that he was hired by Scientific American magazine some years ago to be Editor in Chief, but the job offer was withdrawn when the editorial board discovered that Dr. Mims is a Biblical creationist.

He has written some pretty good Engineer's Notebooks on electronic circuits - They are sold at Radio Shack.

9. Race Hygiene: Three Bush Family Alliances
``The must put the most modern medical means in the service of this knowledge.... Those who are physically and mentally unhealthy and unworthy must not perpetuate their suffering in the body of their children.... The prevention of the faculty and opportunity to procreate on the part of the physically degenerate and mentally sick, over a period of only 600 years, would ... free humanity from an immeasurable misfortune.''

``The per capita income gap between the developed and the developing countries is increasing, in large part the result of higher birth rates in the poorer countries.... Famine in India, unwanted babies in the United States, poverty that seemed to form an unbreakable chain for millions of people--how should we tackle these problems?.... It is quite clear that one of the major challenges of the 1970s ... will be to curb the world's fertility.''

These two quotations are alike in their mock show of concern for human suffering, and in their cynical remedy for it: Big Brother must prevent the `` unworthy '' or `` unwanted '' people from living.

Let us now further inquire into the family background of our President, so as to help illustrate how the second quoted author, George Bush@s1 came to share the outlook of the first, Adolf Hitler. MORE...

11. Is this "ancient spam" day at DU?
This tripe was debunked months ago.

Forrest Mims is the "horrified observer" who started the story. From Wikipedia: Pianka has stated that Mims took his statements out of context and that Pianka was stating what would happen from biological principles alone if present human population trends continue, and that he was not in any way advocating for it to happen.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Forrest_Mims

Dr Pianka is known as a herpetologist & an evolutionary ecologist.

Mims, with a BA in English from Texas A&M, has written many books for Radio shack & did good work as an amateur scientist. However, the Life Sciences are not his strong point. He's a fellow of the Discovery Institute--which preaches tort reform, deregulation of everything & intelligent design.
