Hawking: Humans Will Not
Survive Another 1,000 Years
‘Without Escaping’ Earth

CBSDC/AP, by Staff Writer

Original Article

Posted By:Hermoine, 4/11/2013 7:36:59 AM

Stephen Hawking, who spent his career decoding the universe and even experienced weightlessness, is urging the continuation of space exploration — for humanity’s sake. The 71-year-old Hawking said he did not think humans would survive another 1,000 years “without escaping beyond our fragile planet.”

Comments:
Is it just me, or does it seem pointless to predict something 1,000 years out when you know there´s no way you can be held accountable for your prediction?!

Hawking may still be alive then. He´s smarter than the rest of us. The media said so.

OP, no, it´s not just you. I had the same thought. Reminds me of the hurricane alarmists, desperately hoping their dire predictions won´t be remembered when they turn out wrong. But we´ll remind them.

As for Hawking, he´s been making irresponsible predictions for a while. His intelligence has been grossly over-rated.

No one here knows whether this earth will last until next, a thousand, or ten thousand years from now. The pragmatist in me says chances for survival of our kind are better if we are not all in the same place at the same time. Some investment in preparing for inter-planetary travel and colonization should be maintained.

Humans & Earth are hardier than Hawkings & his other elitist friends think. Since there is no god who created and maintains all this, atheists think we´re all a fortuitous accident waiting to be erased from the universe and get irrationally worked up over every single alarmist possibility of human extinction. Many "environmentalists", like Albore, take advantage of this perpetual existential angst to enrich themselves while hypocritically living like a hog in their personal lives.

Here is a dirty little secret about Hawking and his ability to communicate. Only his graduate assistant can interpret and put into words the twitches on Hawking´s face.So I consider that to be as bogus as the ´facilitated communication´ hoax perpetrated by Doug Biklen, Dean of the college of education at Syracuse University.
Frontline did a thorough job of discrediting the facilitated communications stuff, but Biklen is still raking in federal grant money to continue the scam.\
No one knows what Hawking might be saying, if anything. He just has twitches.

A thousand years from now, we´ll have been long gone and forgotten. With tons of radioactive water streaming into the pacific, containing, among other things, iodine 129, with a half-life of 15.7 million years. Those poisons poisoning our world today, will be here, still poisoning this world long after the last lifeform has been terminated.

second post apology, but #23, for the past several years, Hawking has lost the ability to communicate with that voice computer activation gadget. And it has been reported that the young man who is his graduate assistant reads the twitches on Hawking´s face, and produces the words, via the computer gadget.
Facilitated communication is a process whereby a severely autistic person has his or her hand held over a keyboard, and with the help of a facilitator, who holds the hand of the autistic person, which somehow types out words of the patient.
Frontline, back in the 1990s, did an expose of Biklen, who would not allow anyone to validate the process, because ´it would be an insult to the autistic person.´ Frontline, by setting up a screen between the autism person and the facilitator, using two screens and showing one object to the patient and another object to the facilitator, showed conclusively that the process was bogus.

Hawking may be a liberal, but to say he is anything but a genius is flat out wrong. He is severely handicapped and can´t move at all. He does not only communicate through his graduate assistant. He has a pneumatic/electronic device that allows him to speak by himself with a robotic voice. I suggest you read his book "A Brief History of Time" to put his brilliance into perspective. He explains not only time but different dimensions and the big bang in layman´s terms. He is the antithasis of today´s typical liberal. He does not bemoan his handicap. He has overcome it by the sheer might of his intellect.

Search as they have in recent years, no space scientist has found a planet able to sustain life. That is no more than a pipe dream, it is believing in fairy tales. Belief in A Creator who perfected earth for human habitation is more believable since earth is the only one out here in space that is habitable.

We don´t know how or why we are here, how we got here or where we go from here.

We do know that it is painful and difficult to be here.

So why is it such a problem to not be here ?

If there is a God then he has it under control.

If there isn´t then it doesn´t matter.

Either way it´s not our problem.

If there is another place out there that is habitable--it would almost have to be in the solar system because other galaxies are many generations distant absent the ability to travel at far above the speed of light--I would imagine that within one thousand years a small group of intrepid explorers might have colonized it. But whatever man-caused ills the earth is heir to (and the earth in time cleanses itself), the same will happen elsewhere if elsewhere is in mankind´s future. I think it´s far more likely that mankind will kill itself off, or be wiped out by a meteorite or a superbug. Without the guidance of the Creator, we´re all doomed anyway. And you know what a devout Christian Stephen Hawking is. /s

The last bit of "news" I heard from Hawking called the existence of God a "fairy story" at the same time he maintained that human beings should fulfill their potential by making good use of their lives. I remember thinking, "To what end?" If there isn´t an afterlife or any point to our existence beyond the here and now, who´s to say what any of us "should" do with his life?

#17, The "gadget" he uses is controlled by eye movement, before that it was controlled by breaths. There was a time, before he completely lost the physical ability to speak entirely, that an assistant "translated" his speech. Professor Hawking is a brilliant theoretical physicist, but as an Engineer, I do question several of his theories.

Now, whether or not you agree with his time frame, I believe that he is essentially correct on this. Humanity must grow - expand our horizons. We must continue to endeavor to see what is around the bend of the river or over the next hill. Only by leaving Earth can we do this. Additionally, Humanity must also preserve itself. There will be a global catastrophe, it is only a matter of time.

Eleven days after Journey Ann Cowart celebrated her first birthday, she was dead. The Bartow County sheriff said Monday the baby was beaten to death, allegedly at the hands of her mother and her mother’s boyfriend. And it wasn’t the first time she had been abused, Sheriff Clark Millsap said. “A fractured skull, blunt force trauma to the stomach,” Millsap said, describing Journey’s injuries. “The child had healed ribs that had previously been broken. And she also had a femur that had cracked and had already healed.”

On December 18, 2012, the set of Fox & Friends was both festive and somber. Festive because it was the Christmas season. The three hosts, two men in dark suits flanking a woman in a blue dress, sat on a mustard-colored couch in front of a cheery seasonal backdrop: a lit-up tree, silver-painted twigs, mounds of tinsel, blue and red swatches of fabric, and, here and there, multicolored towers of blown glass with tapering points that made them look surprisingly like minarets. Somber because a terrible thing had happened just four days earlier, in an elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut.

Scientists have found the oldest DNA evidence yet of humans’ biological history. But instead of neatly clarifying human evolution, the finding is adding new mysteries. In a paper in the journal Nature, scientists reported Wednesday that they had retrieved ancient human DNA from a fossil dating back about 400,000 years, shattering the previous record of 100,000 years. The fossil, a thigh bone found in Spain, had previously seemed to many experts to belong to a forerunner of Neanderthals. But its DNA tells a very different story. It most closely resembles DNA from an enigmatic lineage of humans known as Denisovans. Until

The formal, ornate style of the sumptuous gown by Ms Herrera reflected French aesthetics, from the intricate beaded black bodice, to the train and full skirt in a color called liberty blue. ´From the White House to Versailles it´s not that far,´ said Susan Swimmer, author of Michelle Obama: First Lady of Fashion and Style. ´It´s much more keeping in a French aesthetic than I´ve seen her wear before. It´s very French in terms of how ornate it

House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp (R., Mich.) said Tuesday that the committee’s investigation of the Internal Revenue Service found that 100 percent of the tax-exempt groups that were flagged and targeted with an audit were right-leaning. The Wall Street Journal reports: “We now know that the IRS targeted not only right-leaning applicants, but also right-leaning groups that were already operating as 501(c)(4)s,” Mr. Camp said in a statement. “At Washington, DC’s direction, dozens of groups operating as 501(c)(4)s were flagged for IRS surveillance, including monitoring of the groups’ activities, websites and any other publicly available information.

Fiery Louis Farrakhan of Nation of Islam fame said during his weekly video sermon that white people have a history of stirring up trouble, and that Allah has chosen blacks “to give life” and sit at the “top of civilization.” He also “issued the final call,” as he termed it: “I say to the Pope and all the lovers of Jesus, if you desire, let’s have a showdown. You call the Jesus that you know, and I’ll call on the Jesus that I know, and let’s see which one of us really knows Jesus.” Mr. Farrakhan quoted widely from Elijah

Less than 24 hours after President Obama illegally rewrote the law he had previously jammed down Boehner´s -- and the country´s -- throat, Boehner handed the budding dictator a clean debt-ceiling hike. Last October, Obama vindictively shut down the federal government upon his having refused to delay ObamaCare, which of course is exactly what he himself lawlessly did on February 10, 2014! Of course, Boehner is hardly in a position to argue now, having foolishly (immensely so) accepted responsibility for the shutdown. Never mind Boehner´s cowardice (we´ll get to that in a moment); what kind of moron cedes that kind of maneuverability to

Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) defended Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) on Wednesday after the House passed a clean debt-limit bill that raised the ire of conservatives. King branded as “morons” many conservatives in the GOP caucus who consistently oppose any effort to pass the debt limit, asserting they are the same faction that led to the government shutdown last year. “This is the same group that back in September and October went into a government shutdown that everybody knew was a disaster,” King said on MSNBC. “They ended up looking like morons following Ted Cruz over the cliff.” King had been

People misunderstood New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo when he said conservatives “have no place in the state of New York,” the Democratic governor explained Wednesday. “I was not saying anyone should leave the state, right? And anyone who heard the comments knows that’s not what I was saying,” Cuomo said when asked about his comments at a press conference. “To the extent people want to have a political dialogue, that’s what it is.” Cuomo came under fire from conservatives last month when he said “extreme conservatives, who are right-to-life, pro-assault weapon, anti-gay … have no place in the state of

Is demonic possession real or the manifestation of mental illness? In assisting priests in nearly 100 exorcisms, Adam Blai has become a true believer in good and evil, God and the devil. "If you’ve seen the things in the Gospels played out in front of you, it ceases to become faith. It’s knowledge,” says Blai. Former Allegheny County commissioner Bob Cranmer says he shares that same knowledge. He says his home was possessed. “I’ve seen it; I’ve seen crucifixes bent in half repeatedly. I’ve seen Rosary beads torn apart. That doesn’t happen,” said Cranmer. “That’s an evil. That’s not Casper

Three days after announcing that the U.S. Justice Department will recognize same-sex marriages in all legal matters, even in states that forbid it, Attorney General Eric Holder took a swipe at states that don’t allow felons to vote. “In many states, felony disenfranchisement laws are still on the books. And the current scope of these policies is not only too significant to ignore -- it is also too unjust to tolerate,” Holder told a criminal justice forum at Georgetown University Law Center. Holder urged lawmakers “to stand together in overturning an unfortunate and outdated status quo.” And he called on the American
