Scientists Cheer Theoretical Holocaust

first_imgPopular science reporter Forest Mims III heard a chilling round of applause at a meeting of scientists, reported World Net Daily.  When lizard expert Eric R. Pianka suggested it would be a good thing if airborne ebola killed off 90% of the human population, he got a standing ovation – and an award.  At a meeting of the Texas Academy of Science, the audience also liked his suggestion that bird flu could do the job, and chuckled when he suggested it was time to sterilize everyone on Earth.  “We’re no better than bacteria,” Pianka said in his polemic on overpopulation.    Mims is editor of Citizen Scientist.  A former popular science writer for Scientific American, he lost his job there years ago when it was found out he entertained doubts about Darwinism.  The original article by Mims about the Pianka incident can be found at the Citizen Scientist website, with a response by Executive Director Shawn Carlson of the Society for Amateur Scientists, who called Pianka’s opinions “horrifically and dangerously wrong.”  Carlson, an evolutionist himself, called on amateurs to challenge an out-of-control establishment: “When the professional scientists have lost their sense of moral outrage of such ideologies, then it falls to America’s great community of citizen scientists to be the conscious of science,” he said.  “If we do nothing when others stand and applaud ideologies of pseudoscience and death, then history will hold us all to account for our failure to shake the very rafters in support of truth and human life.”This is probably not that unrepresentative of the feelings of today’s leftist-leaning evolutionary biologists about you and me and their fellow human beings.  We don’t see them stepping up to the plate to set an example for the rest of us.  And Carlson, thanks for your moral outrage, but tell us how truth and morality could have evolved.    As we approach Easter season, choose you this day whom you will trust: a bunch of wacko radicals who think you would be better off dead, and whose actions, if they had the power, would make Hitler’s look almost gentle by comparison – or the Son of God, Jesus Christ, who loved each individual so much as to lay down His life to rescue them from the judgment due their sins, even when they were in rebellion and not even looking for help (see Romans 5:5-8).(Visited 18 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img
