Sometimes the smartest people come to the dumbest conclusions.
Professor Stephen Hawking, of all people, the brilliant theoretical physicist, cosmologist and Director of Research at the Centre for Theoretical Cosmology at the University at Cambridge, England, has concluded essentially that the sky is falling.
Stephen Hawking is Chicken Little.
He actually believes, and has said so during a recent speech at Oxford University, that the whole of humanity has less than 1,000 years left to exist on Earth before a mass extinction occurs, and that the only way our species can avoid dying out is to find another planet to inhabit. “We must also continue to go into space for the future of humanity… I don’t think we will survive another 1000 years without escaping beyond our fragile planet.”
Technology will lead Earth to a virtually inevitable global cataclysm, Hawking predicts. “We face a number of threats to our survival from nuclear war, catastrophic global warming, and genetically engineered viruses… The number is likely to increase in the future, with the development of new technologies, and new ways things can go wrong. Although the chance of a disaster to planet Earth in a given year may be quite low, it adds up over time.”
I wonder where this brilliant cosmologist gets the idea that our Earth is “fragile.” After all, the planet has been in existence for some 3.5 billion years. It’s not exactly like a crystal goblet whizzing about in space. I think it’s safe to say that Earth will still be quite intact 1,000 years from now – Hell, probably a billion years from now – unless we experience some sort of cosmic collision with another galaxy. There is no way that human beings all by themselves are going to break planet Earth.
What if humans do find other planets to inhabit? Won’t they be just as fragile as Earth? Won’t there still be the possibility of nuclear wars; catastrophic global warming; and genetically engineered viruses? Won’t they be faced with exactly the same doom and gloom possibilities that they face right now here on Earth? I think Hawking has been watching too many Star Trek movies. He must think that if humans move to other planets they won’t act like humans anymore.
Doesn’t Professor Hawking conveniently forget that human beings are perfectly adapted to inhabit planet Earth? Our species has been hopping around here for at least 2 million years or more which has given us plenty of time to adapt. This is the perfect planet for us. We’re not adapted to inhabit other planets. Other planets are too far away. Who in his right mind would want to leave this perfect planet only to start all over again someplace else light years away?
You want to know what I think. I think that our Professor Hawking has a political agenda in his head. I think his motives are evil. I think he’s a globalist; a committed socialist – perhaps communist -- who detests national sovereignty and individual freedom. I think he hates human liberty.
In an essay published in The Guardian last July, Hawking argued that in order for humans to survive the massive, serious challenges ahead – you know, climate change, overtaxed food production, overpopulation, and all the other transparent bullshit preached by the globalists -- they need to resist the individualism and isolationism that have fueled political movements like Brexit.
He wants a one world order governed by elites like himself. “We will need to adapt, rethink, refocus and change some of our fundamental assumptions about what we mean by wealth, by possessions, by mine and yours. Just like children, we will have to learn to share,” he wrote. He hates individualism. He hates liberty. He doesn’t like Brexit. He’s really pissed off that Donald Trump got elected. So he thinks we’re all doomed. The sky is falling.
“If we fail then the forces that contributed to Brexit, the envy and isolationism not just in the UK but around the world that spring from not sharing, of cultures driven by a narrow definition of wealth and a failure to divide it more fairly, both within nations and across national borders, will strengthen. If that were to happen, I would not be optimistic about the long-term outlook for our species.”
That’s what Professor Stephen Hawking is all about. He’s not about theoretical physics or cosmology here; no… it’s about his rotten political agenda.
He’s Chicken Little with a hammer and sickle.
