Todd May, a professor at Clemson University, is calling for the complete eradication of the human species (according to an op-ed piece in the New York Times).  Apparently, we’ve been so bad to the animals and to the environment that we all deserve to die.  Problem is it’s just his opinion.  Problem is, he isn’t God.

Now, I do agree with a few of Professor May’s thoughts.  For one, there has been a lot of damage done to the environment.  For another, animals are subject to a lot of abuse including being raised for slaughter. After that, in my opinion, the professor goes off the deep end.

For starters, I guess that Professor May sees himself as judge, jury and executioner.  That takes a lot of hubris.  What’s more, Professor May obviously values animal and plant life higher than human life, so I can’t exactly agree with him there either.  Further, Professor May doesn’t explain who is going to carry out the dastardly deed of killing off all the people on the planet; perhaps, himself, as he mentions that he is going to dedicate his life to the cause of “mass abortions” in order to depopulate the planet (and eventually save it).

Of course, I’m not sure what a saved planet would look actually like, although presumably there would be plants and animals except after an ELE (mass extinction event) when maybe only the planet existed and hardly anything much else. Rather a bizarre philosophy, I would say.  After all, it seems rather pointless to have a world with no intelligent life, much less no life at all.

Here’s my biggest objection, though, to what the professor said. He blames everyone, all human beings. That must apply then to the Mother Teresas of the world, the Dalai Lama and people like the Amazon rainforest tribes who have lived in peace and harmony with nature for thousands of years. Yeah, kill ‘em all.

So, is there a logic to Professor May’s madness? Well, actually, there is and you can find it on a hilltop in Elbert County, Georgia just 50 miles from Clemson University. It’s called the Georgia Guidestones, a mysterious granite monument consisting of four giant stones which is engraved in eight different languages. The Georgia Guidestones give mankind a new kind of Ten Commandments including this one which I’m sure that you will love: world population should be no more than 500 million people.  No indication, though, as to who will make the call of which 6.5 billion on the planet will be sacrificed on the altar of occult ideology. Perhaps, it’s Professor May.
