    Stephen Hawking: Science is going to kill us all
    By News.com.au
    January 19, 2016 | 6:31pm

    Scientific progress is almost certain to bring disaster to planet Earth within the next few thousand years, according to top cosmologist Professor Stephen Hawking.
    He predicts that as new technologies are developed, the number of threats to the human race will increase until some kind of global cataclysm is virtually inevitable.
    In the time period before humans manage to escape to the stars, they will have to be “very careful”, he says.
    Hawking’s warning came during a question-and-answer session at the BBC Reith Lectures at London’s Royal Institution on Jan. 7.
    His prophesy of doom came when a member of the audience asked him: “Do you think the world will end naturally or will man destroy it first?”
    “We face a number of threats to our survival from nuclear war, catastrophic global warming, and genetically engineered viruses,” the research director at Cambridge University’s Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics replied.
    “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, and becomes a near certainty in the next thousand or 10,000 years.
    “By that time, we should have spread out into space, and to other stars, so a disaster on Earth would not mean the end of the human race. However, we will not establish self-sustaining colonies in space for at least the next hundred years, so we have to be very careful in this period.”
    Most of the threats the human race faces come from progress in science and technology, he said.

    My nephew has a Ph.D. In physics from an Ivy League school. He's kind of quirky too. He won't carry a cell phone and other stuff like that. I think they are on a different level than the rest of us. He does have a pretty girlfriend though. So he's not all that strange.

    Something to be said about someone calling perhaps one of the smartest person on the planet an idiot.

    Unless you were saying "this guy" as in "what has two thumbs and is an idiot (points to himself with two thumbs) this guy" and just happen to also have interest in this article.

    i agree with him. keeping in mind that some people are crazy, in a couple decades we will be getting to a point where a rich guy could fund somebody to create the perfect human killing virus or some other lovely way to kill everybody just for the fuck of it. or some other never thought of yet way to wipe us out by accident.

    we need to get out into space or eventually, for good or bad, we will be wiped out. it's a big, bad universe out there.

    it's why i :toke:...well, not the only reason. :leaf:

    My hat is tipped to you. I have though Hawkins was a turd for a while - but you said it out loud.

    Cruel but true. Well done.

    Boy you must be smokin somethin. Think of all the loony dictators who
    have WMD's. Have they ever used them to full capacity? No. (9/11 doesn't
    count. Neither does WW2 and Japan. That was a test so now nations know
    how bad/much worse it could get.)
