Only from intellectuals
Actually, the real problem, as he states it, is anthropocentrism.
- “The biggest enemy we face is anthropocentrism,” he said, describing the belief system in which humans are the central element of the universe. “This is that common attitude that everything on this Earth was put here for [human] use.”
In fact, to Pianka, "a human life is no more valuable than any other—a lizard, a bison, a rhino." That is where the real evil comes into the equation. This philosophy does not just raise animals to human status, it lowers human status to that of animals. This is what Darwin's revered theory of evolution has done to the intellectual class--driven them to absurdity.
Pianka essentially advocates the intentional slaughtering of humans through ebola-like viruses. When asked if he believes nature will "bring about this promised devastation" or if humanity's only choice is to bring it on of its own volition, the story reports:
- "...Pianka said 'Good terrorists would be taking [Ebola Roaston and Ebola Zaire] so that they had microbes they could let loose on the Earth that would kill 90 percent of people.'"
The irony here is that in advocating mass slaughter under the guise of "population thinning," Pianka completely misses the most patent difference between humans and animals--the capacity to choose between good and evil. By denying such distinctions, Pianka just makes it easier for humans to choose the latter.
This is an excerpt from an article that came out today on Pianka's evil ideas:
- There's no denying that Pianka, even at first glace, seems a little eccentric.
His office, which he has inhabited for 38 years, is cluttered with books, stacks of paper, bones and even a few beers. There's a photo of him dressed like British naturalist Charles Darwin. Scattered pictures of lizards and a copy of his semi-autobiography, "The Lizard Man Speaks," reveal his area of expertise — lizards and evolutionary ecology. On his desk, he keeps a stuffed likeness of the Ebola virus that was sent to him by students who enjoyed his speeches.
He is particularly troubled by the recent explosion in the human population. He says we now take up about 50 percent of all livable space on Earth and that people should have no more than two children. Humans, and the way they've multiplied, are "no better than bacteria," he says.
This was the underlying philosophy of the Nazi's, and is alive and well today.
