First it was Christmas trees. Liberals were after your Christmas trees. Then it was Christians themselves. There's a war on Christians, Crackerstan was told.
Apparently, that wasn't scary enough.
So now, the message is that scientists want to pretty much murder us all. Stop right there: any transmission to Crackerstan about "scientists" is going to be even more full of shit than usual.
Creationists don't do science. That's pretty much by definition. When a creationist wants to talk to me about science, I usually say something along the lines of "fuck your big-haired mother, hayseed," because the exchange is a waste of my time and I know this asshole isn't going to be honest.So now that drooling superstitious freaks all over the country are talking about Dr. Eric Pianka, the first thing to wonder is not, "what is the issue," because they don't know what the issue is and they don't care. They've been sent to do their usual hooting and feces throwing and they have no idea why. They're incapable of setting this in motion. It's more an issue of "who's pulling their chain?"
What are drooling superstitious freaks good for? I dunno, ask the right. They're always using them.
It all started when one ignorant fucking creationist told a bunch of other ignorant fucking creationists that Dr. Eric Pianka of the University of Texas had advocated killing off 90% of the world's population with a strain of Ebola that doesn't even exist, and that other scientists stood up and cheered. They bought it. Of course they bought it. They're a bunch of ignorant fucking creationists. Buying implausible crap is what they do all day.
DEATH BY EBOLA?: Let's change that nickname from "The Lizard Man" to "Dr. Doom."
Noted evolutionary ecologist and lizard fanatic Eric Pianka, a one-time Fulbright scholar and Guggenheim fellow recognized with this year's Texas Academy of Science distinguished scientist award, is apparently advocating a swift and harsh solution to the population bomb and diminishing natural resources.
As fellow academy member Forrest Mims III reports in The Citizen Scientist, professor Pianka talked about the need to wipe out most of the human race in his award speech to the 109th annual academy conference last month at Lamar University in Beaumont, Texas.
"I watched in amazement," Mims reports, "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 (virus)."
Mims, a best-selling author of electronics books and one-time Scientific American columnist later fired for his creationist views, claims that Pianka put on a slideshow of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse and explaining -- if, indeed, one were to attempt a near wipeout of the human race -- that disease, war and famine would not kill the population as efficiently as Ebola.
"When Pianka finished his remarks," Mims conceded in disgust, "the audience applauded. It wasn't merely a smattering of polite clapping that audiences diplomatically reserve for poor or boring speakers. It was a loud, vigorous and enthusiastic applause."
I'm not prepared to take a word of this seriously for the same reason I don't trust a creationist to find his ass with both hands. He's a drooling superstitious freak. Fuck him, I don't care what he says. But Calvin Liu reprinted the whole thing without talking to Pianka and now other scientists are getting death-threats. If you want to ask Mr. Liu just what the fuck he was thinking, you can reach him c/o the Times,
P.O. Box 8099
Walnut Creek, CA 94596-8099.
Or you can call him at 925-943-8262, fax 925-943-8265, or e-mail him.
You might ask him why the allegation that dozens of scientists got up and cheered about genocide didn't give Mr. Liu pause. How plausible is that?
Of course, it isn't plausible at all, but that doesn't matter to a drooling superstitious freak. They bought it, the whole thing, and are now attacking not just Dr. Pianka himself, but are randomly seeking out and harrassing (and threatening) other scientists from the Texas Academy of Science.
Pharyngula reprinted one of the volunteer brownshirt's letters. It provides yummy deep structure on just how the olfactoral bulb of the common drooling superstitious freak manages to simulate some of the functions of an actual human brain. Put on your pith-helmet and have yourself a little Jane Goodall moment, 'cause we're venturing into darkest Crackerstan:
While Heinrich Himmler's "final solution" was limited to exterminating the Jews, Dr. Eric R. Pianka promotes a FINAL SOLUTION for 90% of earth's population. In accepting the 2006 Distinguished Texas Scientist award, Heir [sic] Pianka was interrupted with applause and received a standing ovation.
"Soylent Green is people." And the way cinema's futurist society dealt with over population was through the "Renewal Ceremony", where the inductees were secretly turned into FOOD for the remaining citizens.
AT LEAST THEY WERE TURNED INTO FOOD! Unleashing the Ebola virus on humanity, as publicly advocated by reptilian advocate [sic] Dr. Pianka, would result in billions of excruciating deaths and rotting corpses in the streets. Does such a position increase the esteem of the Texas Academy of Science? Is the Academy deem such a colleague as a visionary, exemplar, & eloquent
THIS IS AN OUTRAGE! For a scientific community, however provincial, to recognize Dr. Pianka sublimates wholesale genocide. His advocacy of the extermination of most human life on the earth flies in the face of natural selection, and is so patently absurd as to defy logical challenge. The Texas Academy of Science, her directors, fellows, and members, is DIMINISHED through close association with, and its elevation of, Dr. Eric R. Pianka.
If the Academy is to maintain public and professional credibility, it must censure Dr. Pianka and rescind his "Distinguished" status. Please use your personal and professional influence toward that immediate end.

Mr. Arnett apparently learned about the Third Reich from the History Channel, or perhaps by word of mouth, judging by his phonetic spelling of German. After falling afoul of Godwin, he then cites the hard scientific fact of science fiction. I'm guessing Mr. Arnett spends an awful lot of time in front of the Tee-Vee.

Of course, a lie gets halfway around the world before the truth can get its shoes on.
"If we don't control our population, microbes will. Why do we have these lethal microbes that kill us in the first place? The answer is, there's too many of us," Pianka said.
Pianka says he would never advocate genocide or extermination like some suggest he does.
"I've got two granddaughters, man. I'm putting money in a college fund for my granddaughters. I'm worried about them," Pianka said.
He said he believes criticism of his theory about an inevitable plague on mankind comes from a rival jealous about his distinguished scientist award from the Texas Academy of Science.
"He's an avowed enemy, and he's made this very clear that he's going to get me and take me down," Pianka said.
We tried to contact the guy Pianka says is behind this smear campaign. He did not get back to us.
Well of course not, what do you expect? They only attack in swarms. One on one they're both gutless and stupid.
On the right, that's considered a strength. Stupid people are useful. Stupid people who are easily threatened are even more useful.
Of course any thinking person can see that ... wait for it!
But Eric Pianka said Monday his remarks about what he believes is an impending pandemic were taken out of context.
"What we really need to do is start thinking about controlling our population before it's too late," he said. "It's already too late, but we're not even thinking about it. We're just mindlessly rushing ahead breeding our brains out."
The public furor began when The Gazette-Enterprise of Seguin, Texas, reported Sunday on two speeches Pianka made last month to groups of scientists and students about vanishing animal habitats and the explosion of the human population.
The Gazette-Enterprise quoted Pianka as saying disease "will control the scourge of humanity. We're looking forward to a huge collapse."
Pianka said he was only trying to warn his audience that disease epidemics have happened before and will happen again if the human population growth isn't contained.
Yeah, I got that. I didn't need an explanation. The thirteenth century was looking forward to a huge collapse, too. They weren't ready for it. What Pianka is talking about has happened before, but drooling superstitious freaks don't do history, either.
What they do do is strawmen:
But Mims, chairman of the academy's environmental science section, told The Associated Press there was no mistaking Pianka's disdain for humans and desire for their elimination.
"He wishes for it. He hopes for it. He laughs about it. He jokes about it," Mims said. "It's got to happen because we are the scourge of humanity."
Ignorant fucking creationists can read minds, apparently. Mims needs his imaginary Pianka. It's the whole reason for Mims' miserable existence.
Much of this crap is being flung by the underevolved simians at The Discovery Institute, where they advocate teaching ignorance on a daily basis. Dembski, of same, reported Pianka to Homeland Security. I shit you not.
And then there are the freelance drooling superstitious freaks:

Pianka goes on to say, we are turning the planet into a "fat, human biomass." He giddily proclaims that, "Disease will control the scourge of humanity." He is actually looking forward to the day when a huge collapse of human life comes to pass because of some bio-bug that has morphed out of control. Pianka believes the human race suffers from anthropocentrism, which is the belief that humans are the central element of the universe.
As far as Pianka is concerned a human life is no more valuable than a lizard, a bison, or a rhino. But not to worry, Pianka has discovered the perfect plan to rid the earth of the infection of humanity. He openly suggests that the Ebola virus (specifically Ebola Zaire) is the answer to the humanity problem. The virus currently kills 9 out of every 10 people who are unfortunate (or fortunate if you follow Pianka' thinking) enough to come in contact with infected blood. But while most scientists are spending their time trying to find a way to counter the bird flu virus should it ever transform into a strain that can survive in the air, Dr. Pianka is longing for the day the Ebola Zaire virus will overcome through evolution its own airborne limitations. In his presentations to his classes, Pianka shows slides of the Four Horsemen of the apocalypse and human skulls. He jokes about requiring universal sterilization and chuckles about how the Ebola virus will one day take care of the humanity problem.
You would think someone this radical would be scorned, his ideas condemned, and his position in jeopardy. But this is the world of the looney left where ideas about human genocide are as welcome as a Barbara Streisand fund raiser. In fact, Dr. Pianka received a standing ovation at the end of his presentation from his class and The Texas Academy of Science decided to reward his work toward the destruction of humanity with its Distinguished Scientist award. In addition, Dr. Robert K. Jansen, who serves as chairman of the integrated biology department where Dr. Pianka teaches said he saw no cause for concern over the doomsday material. Jansen went on to day, "To hold a classrooms attention educators must often speak their mind in a fashion bold enough to garner a bit of shock."
A bit of shock? That is how the chairman of the integrated biology department at a major U.S. university describes advocating the death of 5.6 billion people? What Ward Churchill is to the political realm and Peter Singer is the ethical realm, Eric Pianka is to the scientific realm. All of these far left thinkers has something in common....they have no regard for the value of human life.
For Ward Churchill, people who fly airplanes into buildings loaded with innocent men and woman are heroes because he sees a moral equivalency between just war and terrorist acts.
Yes, that's right. This dumb cracker just played the Ward Churchill card. If you feel like laughing in the drooling superstitious freak's face, you can reach him here.
Why is Pianka being called a "liberal"? Well, when you're a drooling superstitious freak, I guess all scientists are "liberals" to you. They only call people "liberals" when they have nothing intelligent to say. For drooling superstitious freaks, of course, that's every day of the year. Yes, this "exposes the loony left" in that it shows how easy it is to use a bunch of drooling superstitious freaks to do just about anything so long as you scare 'em good enough.
In reality, Eric Pianka is a conservative, he just also happens to be a scientist which means that he's not on the drooling superstitious freaks' talking points of the day. He has to be made into a "liberal" because what he supposedly said could only be "liberal," if you're a drooling superstitious freak, but in fact both the ideological subscription and the speech itself are made up. Living in a fantasy world where Gawd made all duh prettie fower-fowers makes this kind of ignorant shit easy to do.
The right is so hardwired into the deadend Darwin deniers, the Christian Reconstructionists, and other head-in-the-sand know nothings that they have isolated themselves from people who think for a living. All science is wrong. The right knows this 'cause they found the face of Jesus in a burned tortilla.
What other developed nation has to drag along this kind of dead weight? Can't this country just take a big, healthy shit and be rid of them?
One of the ignorant creationist's friends passes this crap on without examination or thought, which is odd since his blog features a T-Shirt that says "THINK!" on it. Apparently thinking is just for T-Shirts, if you're a drooling superstitious freak.
This is just like the phony "War on Chist-mas/ians" crap. Crackerstan is useful to the right and the right has an awful lot of news to distract Crackerstan from, so they have to tell Crackerstan that they're under attack. There's nothing left of the right except a convulsive twitch and the people who know how to use it. One feeble little man's vendetta and every monkey on the right is flinging feces and hooting ...... on cue.
