The Professor of Death: UPDATE

The Professor of death after the firestorm of attention is trying to spin his way out...so on to the spin:

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."

So here we go. He claims immediately that an impending pandemic is what he was talking about then he ties it in to the fact its to late to stop the damage of our breeding. If it really was the first he could have said it all on Camera....and he wouldn't have tied it into population.

So I am still believing the Pajama-Ninja version of events

His defense...yep Academic freedom:

"Dr. Pianka has First Amendment rights to express his point of view," Hale said. "We have plenty of faculty with a lot of different points of view and they have the right to express that point of view, but they're expressing their personal point of view."

didn't a guy try to be a holocaust denier/Neo-Nazi and end up getting fired from his job as a professor?

yeah so its not about academic freedom its about a certain kind of freedom

So I am not pulling Pianka off the hook on this one
