Dr. 'Doom' Pianka


Dr. Ebola-Doom  Pianka is a  disturbing manifestation our education system.  I say "system" because many applauded his ridiculous conservationist-90% death of all humans ranting.  This link has some of his actual words so this is not just a bunch of over-reacting earth killers. 

Makes you all warm and fuzzy over higher education in America.


Transcript From the Speech That Started It AllDr. "Doom" Pianka Speaks  

By J. Richard Pearcey

News of Dr. Pianka's views broke when scientist and author Forrest Mims published a March 31 article in The Citizen Scientist.  In that article Mims said, "I watched in amazement as a few hundred members of the Texas Academy of Science rose to their feet and gave a standing ovation to a speech that enthusiastically advocated the elimination of 90 percent of Earth's population by airborne Ebola."

The rebuttal coming from the Texas academy of Sciences to the publicity surrounding Dr. Pianka's statements.

Academy of Science responds to critics

Published April 5, 2006AUSTIN — The Texas Academy
But to the academy, the message behind Pianka’s presentation is inconsequential. President David Marsh said the organization selects the DTS honoree based solely upon the individual’s credentials and contributions to science. He said TAS places no constraints on its speakers, nor will it ever.
“Whether or not we as a body agree with the statements that Dr. Pianka made in his presentation is irrelevant,” he said. “We are an academy of individuals, and as such, each is free to make his or her alignments.”

Great,  any professor who wished to speak about offering alternative views to the origin of life is free to make his or her own alignments.  I'LL BET!  What do you think?Tags: , , , , , , ,
