Population controllers tend to be a grumpy and dangerous lot, and Gaia worshippers are dangerous too. I think they've combined forces and are working hard to indoctrinate others with their ideology. Their goal is simple: limit human population, especially people born somewhere in Asia or Africa.
American Enterprise Institutes's Nicholas Eberstadt writes that members of the UN and other controlling agencies would celebrate the birth of a blue-eyed child, but not a infant whose life isn't worth living, so to speak.
He's got a point. However, I don't think he is entirely correct. I think the controllers hate all of humanity, whatever their color or ethnicity. These people, like the Chinese with their horrid one-child policy, would like to limit the number of births and only allow people who toe the party line to have a child.
In case you think I'm stretching the issue too far, I'd like to remind you that some professors in prestigious universities, like biologist Eric Pianka, maintain that the world would be better off if only 10 percent of its population lived. Pianka says that people are scourges.
Then again, there are people like philosophy professsor Jeff McMahan. Not content to get rid of people, he wants to destroy all carnivorous animals (and plants). According the McMahan, if he had been God, he wouldn't have made carnivorous animals.
Then there are people like PETA'S Ingrid Newkirk and director James Cameron, who maintain that people are the problem. Their views are widely disseminated -- for instance, in movies like Avatar, a huge, colorful, well-produced blockbuster, which is continually running on cable channels.
What does this have to do with Gaia worship? People like the ones I've mentioned have started accepting that the earth itself is sacred, a god-like thing. This type of thinking has made inroads in every conceivable venue: educational establishments, churches, and popular television shows.
The pressure is on. If you've not had a chance to listen to it yet, today's "Two-Minute Warning" is a good warning about the natural response of people agreeing to an idea or action even when they disagree.
The group that's controlling the population debate is showing a lot of self-hatred. People the world over are in their cross-hairs. Before there aren't many people or carnivorous animals left, we might want to help shape the conversation. Starting with books like Wesley J. Smith's A Rat Is a Pig Is a Dog Is a Boy: The Human Cost of the Animal Rights Movement,educate yourself on this issue so that you might be able to educate your own children and others with whom you have contact.
Then, when you hear about the 7 billionth child born, celebrate and be glad that God looked at His handiwork and "saw that it was very good."
