“Friends of the Delta”? I think not, however well intentioned some of them may be, at this point I don’t believe all of those involved realize the full implications of what they are trying to do.
In 1979 the Department of the Interior conducted a study to determine the feasibility of purchasing 192,000 acres within a 37 mile expanse of the Mobile/Tensaw Delta in order to turn it into a National Park or Wildlife Refuge. Strong public dissent and opposition by then Congressman Jack Edwards killed this attempt to Federalize the Delta. “Friends of the Delta”, which has mysteriously disappeared from the internet, is once again trying to turn the Mobile/Tensaw Delta, from north of Interstate 10 northward to encompass the entire Delta, including it’s creeks and tributaries, into a National Park.
“Save the Mobile/Tensaw Delta” is a grassroots effort of people that love the Delta. Those included in this effort are land owners, hunters, fisherman and those that love it simply for it’s recreation appeal. We are totally happy with it’s management and control by the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources. In an effort to understand the reasoning behind this latest attempt to Federalize the Delta, we discovered some startling facts, all of which are sourced by their appropriate links.
On 6 November, 2012 some two decades after its establishment by constitutional amendment in 1992, we Alabamians went to the polls to vote on whether or not to continue funding the Forever Wild Land Trust (FWLT), managed and regulated by the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (ADCNR). A few days earlier two men, Edward O Wilson and James B McClintock co-authored an article for the Birmingham News which appeared on AL.com on 29 October, 2012. They explained to us voters why we should continue funding the FWLT. We agreed by majority and the Bill was passed.
Upon recently reading the article I immediately became aware of some “pet words” associated with The United Nations and one of their many projects known as “Agenda 21” later called “Habitat II”. Words such as “biodiversity” coined by Edward O. Wilson himself and “sustain/sustainability”. Then in reading a short biography of both men, the hairs on the back of my neck began to stand on end as I learned that Edward O. Wilson was the author of a book entitled “The Social Conquest of Earth” and Chairman of “The E. O. Wilson Biodiversity Foundation” located in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.
Curious to find out if the title of his book was really as fearsome as it sounded, I checked it out on Amazon.com and read a brief synopsis of just what the book entailed. You can follow the link, however here is what was written exactly as I found it:
“The Social Conquest of Earth[Hardcover], Edward O. Wilson
Publication Date: April 9, 2012 | ISBN-10: 0871404133 | ISBN-13: 978-0871404138 | Edition: 1
From the most celebrated heir to Darwin comes a groundbreaking book on evolution, the summa work of Edward O. Wilson’s legendary career.
Where did we come from? What are we? Where are we going? In a generational work of clarity and passion, one of our greatest living scientists directly addresses these three fundamental questions of religion, philosophy, and science while “overturning the famous theory that evolution naturally encourages creatures to put family first” (Discover magazine). Refashioning the story of human evolution in a work that is certain to generate headlines, Wilson draws on his remarkable knowledge of biology and social behavior to show that group selection, not kin selection, is the primary driving force of human evolution. He proves that history makes no sense without prehistory, and prehistory makes no sense without biology. Demonstrating that the sources of morality, religion, and the creative arts are fundamentally biological in nature, Wilson presents us with the clearest explanation ever produced as to the origin of the human condition and why it resulted in our domination of the Earth’s biosphere.” (red highlight is mine) Upon reading the many reviews of this controversial book, I came across one written by Sandra Upson and Anna Kuchment for the Scientific American, which reads as follows:
“ In The Social Conquest of Earth, Wilson offers a full explanation of his latest thinking on evolution. Group dynamics, not selfish genes, drive altruism, he argues: “Colonies of cheaters lose to colonies of co-operators.” As the cooperative colonies dominate and multiply, so do their alleged “altruism” genes. Wilson uses what he calls “multilevel selection”—group and individual selection combined—to discuss the emergence of the creative arts and humanities, morality, religion, language and the very nature of humans. Along the way, he pauses to reject religion, decry the way humans have despoiled the environment and, in something of a non sequitur, dismiss the need for manned space exploration. The book is bound to stir controversy on these and other subjects for years to come.” “
“Edward Osborne Wilson, University Research Professor Emeritus at Harvard, is the guiding force that shapes the mission of The E. O. Wilson Biodiversity Foundation” , whose management team is led by President and CEO, Paula J Ehrlich, DVM, PhD and hosts a long and interesting list of team members which I won’t list here but you can find on the management link. Anyone researching Agenda21/Habitat II will be stopped cold in their tracks upon reading the Mission Statement of the foundation and I quote:
“The E.O. Wilson Biodiversity Foundation promotes worldwide understanding of the importance of biodiversity and the preservation of our biological heritage. We aim to foster a new generation of enthusiastic explorers, environmental policy makers, and informed citizens through innovative research and education initiatives. Our programs drive toward a culture of stewardship in which people are inspired to conserve and protect. By engaging people wherever they are—through experiential education and research in the field, or at home on their laptops—the Foundation hopes to create an authentic grassroots network of citizens that celebrate and conserve the biological richness of nature as a treasure to be passed on.” (red highlights are mine) Scrolling further down this same page I finally find what I’m looking for;
“CONSERVING NATURE: NATIONAL PARK SERVICE INITIATIVES”
“The 2016 National Park Service Centennial has created a unique impetus for biodiversity research and education initiatives here in the U.S. The E.O. Wilson Biodiversity Foundation is actively working with the National Park Service (NPS) on these initiatives, including stewardship of a program that provides mentorship to NPS Biodiversity Youth Ambassadors across our National Parks. In an exciting new initiative, we are joining stakeholders from the Alabama environmental conservation community to develop a plan to celebrate the unique biodiversity of the Mobile-Tensaw Delta through its designation as a National Park unit.“ The stakeholders he mentions are names such as Bill Finch, Ann Bedsole, Mobile Baykeepers and The Ocean Foundation, just to name a few. A more detailed list may be found at “Save Our Delta”.
This nice old man of 83 years, I find is not such a nice old man at all, but a man who stated in one of his lectures that the BOOK OF REVELATION was the ramblings of a paranoid schizophrenic, he proclaims himself to be an atheist that believes that if we have a decline in religion it would remove the hostility in the world, that without religion we would become natural allies. Wilson believes that conservation is more important than the religious idea of this being a temporary point in our life on the way to the Divine. That nature will always be here, whereas humans will not.
This man has studied ants for so long that he wants to see the human race placed in these same types of colonies, where we each have a role to play. Will you be a queen, a scout or a worker? Wilson states that by knowing our place in these colonies, productivity and power will be enhanced. This, I might add, is also the goal of Agenda21/Habitat II.
Somewhere along the line, Edward Osborne Wilson, one of the signers of the
Humanist Manifesto, has decided that he is a god, that our God does not exist, much less still control our universe, that it is his calling along with his many cronies to change this world as we know it. Even the Dauphin Island Sea Lab christened its newest research vessel the R/V E.O. Wilson in 2005.
Now I am all for being stewards of our great Delta, and believe we have done a good job thus far, but the ultimate purpose of these people in collusion with the United Nations is to rid our Delta of humans, with the exception of the caretakers, and return it to its original wilderness or “Biosphere”. I have not figured out yet, according to the Biosphere Reserve Location Map by UNESCO, if we are to be known by their name as “The Big Thicket” or a part of “The Central Gulf Coast Plain”. UNESCO, (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) by the way, is known as the “intellectual” agency of the United Nations.
You may be wondering where will the humans go? The United Nations already has that figured out; humans will be sent to predesignated areas scattered around the United States. This is evidenced by their own map, entitled “Simulated Reserve and Corridor System To Protect Biodiversity”, showing the locations of what some might term “concentration camps”. The U. N. however, prefers to call them “Military Reservations”. This may be a good time to read John Robert’s blog entitled “6 more government “camps” to house millions”. In perusing this map it will immediately become evident that these few locations can in no way hold all of the people in these United States, so what will happen to the rest of us? At this point, with a little imagination, I believe you can figure out the answer on your own, I will, however give you a hint, do you remember names such as Auschwitz, Dachau or Buchenwald?
