Ok Dr. Doom. Since you can't eradicate 90% of the world's population today why don't you just start with yourself?

Please! Please! Tolerance,! All opinions are worthy of respect. We have a big tent. Lots of room at the table. We must worship at the fount of his human dignity! Equal rights for all! Free speech! He is stimulating "The Debate!"

12 Monkeys stuff. And I assume that he and his family and friends would be part of the 10%.

This guy needs to get out more often...say like a nice trip to Montgomery Texas. We would love to take him on a nice H.D. ride Sunday morning.

Professor Pianka began his speech by explaining that the general public is not yet ready to hear what he was about to tell us

Not ready to hear that he wants 90% of them dead? Go figure.

So the "scientists" stood up and applauded...

Something curious occurred a minute before Pianka began speaking. An official of the Academy approached a video camera operator at the front of the auditorium and engaged him in animated conversation. The camera operator did not look pleased as he pointed the lens of the big camera to the ceiling and slowly walked away.

This is getting more and more interesting (and frightening) by the moment. Not only is the prof a nut case who can't spell, but he's forming new nut cases every day in class.

I believe Ted Turner has made similar statements (of course if I woke up next to Jane Fonda without make up, I'd......)

I knew there were people like Peter Singer in the world, but I did not know that such views had any sort of widespread currency among so-called "scientists." It sounds as if the Third Reich never died; it just morphed into "the scientific community."

These self-styled luminaries must be the first exposed to airborne Ebola, if they are to have a shred of credibility.

Check out the prof's evaluations - "Everyone should be required to take this class to "spread the word.", "I worship Dr. Pianka", "I knew this would be a most interesting class the first day when Dr. Pianka downed homocentrism."

He seems to have written his own obituary so maybe he's not planning on surviving.

What a loon. This is the sort of stuff that happens to a bright mind when it's locked away on a college campus for too many decades.

He's run out of original thoughts and now he has to resort to some bad movie ideas to sound interesting.

From the student evaluations, excerpted on his webpage:

" This is the closest thing this university has to a true religion course and Pianka is the perfect preacher. In other science courses we are taught to look at things specifically and therefore lose the big picture. In this class we study the big picture. 'Why are we here?' That question is answered in evolution. Everyone should be required to take this class to 'spread the word.'"

Is this a leftover April Fool's prank? There is no video or audio record of the man's remarks?

This guy is really weird
Has his own obit already written

Pianka spent nearly 10 years of his life living in the desert, often alone, and he liked to think of himself as a hermit and a desert rat. He spent 6 full years down under and at times, he was at one with the bushfly. He spent the last half of his life living in the Texas hill country in a "shack on Flat Creek," where he became known as "Tatonka Pianka."

At age 13, he was seriously injured in a Bazooka blast in the front yard of his childhood home in Yreka, California. His left leg became gangrenous, and he lost 10 cm of his tibia, as well as the terminal digit of the middle finger on his right hand. Pianka's childhood injury left him with a short and partially paralyzed leg, which seldom slowed him down very much. In later life, his short leg resulted in spinal scoliosis and cervical spondylosis (an S-shaped spine and a pinched brachial nerve between neck vertebrae).

During his first year in high school, Pianka was bedridden and had a home teacher who taught him english and typing.



Seems obcessed with lizards and snakes

I suggest copying his website; it might be taken down very soon with all the negative publicity, but since it's Sunday most university techies will be off-duty.

Kudos to the Academy member who is blowing the whistle. This kind of crap has been simmering at a low level, but even my worst fears didn't think such nutjobs would have widespread collegial approval.

I hope this is an April Fool's hoax, or a misrepresentation, but I doubt that's the case. Every amateur journalist should carry digital voice recorders to speeches. I sure do.
