The Population Bomb, by Paul Ehrlich was published in 1968 the year I graduated from Trinity College (which was already becoming an enemy to the faith). I read it. Wow!
What a piece of horror fiction! A baby was on the cover of the book inside a bomb with a lit fuse. You know what they say about a picture being worth a thousand words. Clearly, babies were the enemies of the earth.
It would have been more accurate to have a black baby inside the bomb because people like Ehrlich and his liberal friends always had their sights on the third world, but that wouldn't have been politically correct and might wake people up to what was really going on. After all, as Margaret Sanger said, “We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population. And the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.” Ditto today where blacks like Faye Wattleton, who was the face of Planned Parenthood from 1978 until 1992, promote the murder of black children.
Hysteria filled the pages of Ehrlich's book. The sky was falling. Unless we immediately used draconian methods to limit births, the earth would be a wasteland, we would all be starving, there would be no food or water, and our landscapes would be covered with the bodies of the dead. Well, maybe not that last bit, because he predicted as recently as 2014 that we would all be eating the bodies of the dead. It gives new meaning to the term road kill. (One wonders how many times Ehrlich watched the 1973 film, Soylent Green.) The man was not only wrong in 1968, he was "spectacularly wrong." But his work pleased the rich cadre of population controllers and they bought up tens of thousands of his book to distribute on college campuses to brainwash countless students. And it worked.
I was accosted a number of times at fast food restaurants and in stores when I was pregnant with my third child in 1974. How dare I have another baby. Didn't I know there was a serious population problem? My husband and I also heard it from couples in our marriage preparation groups who planned not to have children at all because the world was "overpopulated," a decision that would make their marriages invalid. Ironically, they often specifically mentioned overpopulation in poor countries, code words for third world blacks. Honestly, population control has always been racist!
Now, if Ehrlich were a true prophet, of course, none of us would be here to tell the tale. But he was wrong in 1968 and he is still wrong today. Exactly what are his credentials for participating in the Vatican meeting? Ehrlich is an extreme pro-abort who never let the fact that he was dead wrong interfere with his extremism. He is the poster boy for despair, a "celebrity atheist." And yet this man will give a talk, along with fellow atheist, Partha Dasgupta, on "Causes and Pathways of Biodiversity Losses: Consumption Preferences, Population Numbers, Technology, Ecosystem Productivity."
It would be interesting to go through the list of speakers at the Biological Extinction meeting, which clearly begins from the assumption that mankind is destroying the planet, and see how many are atheists and/or Darwinian evolutionists. The subtitle of the conference, How to Save the Natural World on which We Depend clearly echoes the Humanist Manifesto that no God is out there to save us. We're on our own to solve all the problems of the universe with our brilliant minds that are much more godlike than any "Teapot in the sky" as Richard Dawkins so cavalierly dismisses the Almighty. If you want to understand what 's happening to the culture and why, read the three versions of the Humanist Manifesto here, here, and here. Clearly those ideas have infiltrated even the Vatican at the highest levels.
With regard to the participants at the meeting, I checked a handful of names on the list. Werner Arber a microbiologist and geneticist, is a "theistic evolutionist" whatever that means. Sociologist Margaret Archer, president of the Pontifical Academy on Social Sciences, appears to be a liberal Catholic (I presume she's Catholic although I couldn't find anything confirming that. At today's Vatican such an assumption is questionable.) Phil Lawler took Archer to task in an article at Catholic Culture over her response to a piece at First Things critiquing the Vatican meeting on climate change:
Stefano Gennarini of the Center for Family and Human Rights..., called attention to the errors in the prelate’s replies [Bishop Sanchez Sorondo] in a clear but respectful piece for First Things. He did not denounce or insult the archbishop; he merely made his points—presumably hoping to stimulate a genuine debate.
Instead, Margaret Archer, the president of the PASS, fired back with a vituperative attack on Gennarini. In a shocking diatribe, Archer completely ignored the substance of Gennarini’s arguments to concentrate on an ad hominem attack. Invoking a hoary old pro-abortion canard, she claimed that pro-lifers are only interested in human life up until the time of birth....She asked Gennarini the insulting question: “which lobbyists meet your salary bill?”And that, friends, is another indication she's a liberal. They rarely engage in a civil discussion when they disagree, but immediately go for the ad-hominem jugular!
Another speaker, John Bogaarts is Vice President of the Population Council, a population control group using abortion, contraception, sex ed, and other evil means to promote "sustainable development." Bogaarts, employeed at the Rockefeller's eugenics organization since 1973, can hardly be anything but a population control ideologue and member of the "Population Firm" described in a detailed 2004 report on The Inherent Racism of Population Control by LifeSiteNews.
|Kill the people; save the planet!|
I suspect if I continued researching the speakers, faith would not be an important element for most of them unless it was "faith" as described in the Humanist Manifesto. I haven't found a Louis Pasteur or Gregor Mendel and it appears that God has no seat at the table and nothing to offer in "saving the natural world" He created. The "saviors" of the planet, rather, appear to be the scientists themselves, at least in their own minds.
All I can say is the fact that the population control monster is well represented at the Vatican's Biological Extinction meeting indicates the proper illustrator for the meeting's publication is Goya. The fact that we are facing extinction may, in fact, be correct, but not for the reasons these arrogant academics believe. The answer can be found at Fatima and Lucia's prediction that the final battle will be over the family. Pray and fight for the faith.
Lord Jesus, Savior of the World, have mercy on us and our children.
Our Lady, Queen of the Universe, pray for us.
