Professing to be Wise

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: but fools despise wisdom and instruction. Proverbs 1:7

Meet Dr. Doom.
At the Texas Academy of Science meeting in early March, University of Texas professor, Dr. Eric R. Pianka gave a speech that should outrage anyone especially those in his own scientific community. Sadly, the opposite happened. After the camera man was instructed to turn off his camera, Dr. Pianka beganto talk about what he believed the "general population wasn't ready to hear." In his speech, Dr. Pianka said that human beings are no better than bacteria and that the human population needed to be reduced by up to 90% in order to save the earth. Here's what Dr. Pianka said according to a amateur scientist in the audience taking notes,

War and famine would not do, he explained. Instead, disease offered the most efficient and fastest way to kill the billions that must soon die if the population crisis is to be solved.
With human skulls on slides behind him, he went on to talk about possible methods of mass extermination with a virus like Ebola. He also spoke "glowingly" of the Chinese police state and its one child policy. And what was the response from the audience,

Immediately almost every scientist, professor and college student present stood to their feet and vigorously applauded the man who had enthusiastically endorsed the elimination of 90 percent of the human population. Some even cheered. Dozens then mobbed the professor at the lectern to extend greetings and ask questions.
Later that day he was awarded a plaque for being named the 2006 Distinguished Texas Scientist. Obviously, many in the scientific community don't think this man's as nut but a credible scientist.

This is the natural conclusion to Darwinist evolutionary thinking that has permeated our educational system. God help us all.
