Cosmologist Stephen Hawking who is considered one of the smartest men in the world, who has attempted to disprove the existence of God by using various branches of evolution but failed, he is now claiming mankind will doom the vast majority of his or her existence because we are in a rush to develop new technologies to improve our lives.
The wording in which he puts it sounds very similar to what environmental groups have been advocating for years and apparently Stephen Hawking believes in these groups. However, his solution to the manufactured problems is living in outer space. And since he predicts this won’t be possible for the next 100 years, something bad is going to happen because of mankind’s behavior.
What exactly mankind will do to wipe itself off the face of the planet? For one, Hawking mentions bio-engineering which is…
“…a discipline that advances knowledge in engineering, biology, and medicine — and improves human health through cross-disciplinary activities that integrate the engineering sciences with the biomedical sciences and clinical practice.”
Hawking has a fear that mankind is going to invent genetically engineered viruses which will get loose among the population that it will eventually wipe out many people lives.
Second thing, Hawking suggests global warming due to mankind as the root cause will also play a part in man’s doom. His understanding on this issue is bias, the science doesn’t suggest it. Last December was the warmest on record in my locality, the record in which was broken happened in 1877, since then…emissions have increased but yet in 1877, emissions were a lot less and it still broke a record. And that record stood for a long time even with the environmental changes. You can discover this pattern of increased or decreased in emissions vs warming and cooling throughout history.
Third thing, Hawking mentions nuclear war, the last time mankind was on a possible brink of a nuclear war was the Cuban missile crisis back in the early 1960’s. Fear of nuclear war increased in the 80’s but has lost its luster after that. Dirty nukes are considered more of a threat than traditional ones. No country in the world is going to start a nuclear war with traditional weapons because you can destroy the earth many times over, there is no winner. However, having nuclear weapons means power.
This is not the first time Hawking has declared doom for mankind, he has warned the world about Al Robots massively killing humans (sounds like a Hollywood movie called, The Terminator) and aliens coming to earth in order to destroy us (sounds like a science fiction movie: War of the Worlds).
While Hawking is very smart at math, he is not that smart with evolution nor with his absurd predictions for mankind. While mankind faces major challenges; science, robots, historical warming and cooling of the earth is not one of them!
