Let Us Destroy Other Planets!

I really don't know why this Hawking guy is so respected.

Until now, his amazing IQ has done nothing to help humankind, all his theories can not be proved because only if we were capable of travelling through time and/or at the speed of light could we ever find out if he was right or wrong.

Well, now he has fueled some of the most wacky End of the World sects out there. He claims that humans must colonize other planets if we want to survive. He says that the Earth is on the brink of not being able to provide us with the elements for our species to prevail.

But he does not tell us exactly how can we go out there and colonize planets with life sustaining atmospheres, no, he simply tells us to go to the Moon and Mars, where there is nothing but rocks and dust.

Even worst, he tell us that we need to do this because "we are at risk of being wiped out by a disaster, such as:

a) sudden global warming,
b) nuclear war,
c) a genetically engineered virus
d) or other dangers we have not yet thought of."


Well well well, if he really believes in the first three worst case scenarios, then he should be asking for George W. Bush to be removed from office. The fourth case scenario is for Doomsday believers, or people that went to see "Armaggedon" and cried when Bruce Willis said goodbye to the Tyler girl.

So, while Mr. Hawking is out ther making millions by spreading fear as to secure funds for NASA, we are left with a world where the police detains 40 people for defending a garden in the middle of concrete warehouses or where the Israeli government denies its involvement in the killing of three children on friday by murdering an equal number of children today with an air strike.

Congratulations Stephen, you are a real genious!

Here you have the note about the highest IQ's newest pile of worthless bs:

Hawking says space colonies needed

The survival of the human race depends on its ability to find new homes elsewhere in the universe because there's an increasing risk that a disaster will destroy the Earth, world-renowned astrophysicist Stephen Hawking said Tuesday.

Humans could have a permanent base on the moon in 20 years and a colony on Mars in the next 40 years, the British scientist told a news conference.

"We won't find anywhere as nice as Earth unless we go to another star system," added Hawking, who arrived in Hong Kong to a rock star's welcome Monday. Tickets for his lecture planned for Wednesday were sold out.

He added that if humans can avoid killing themselves in the next 100 years, they should have space settlements that can continue without support from Earth.

"It is important for the human race to spread out into space for the survival of the species," Hawking said. "Life on Earth is at the ever-increasing risk of being wiped out by a disaster, such as sudden global warming, nuclear war, a genetically engineered virus or other dangers we have not yet thought of."

The 64-year-old scientist — author of the global best seller "A Brief History of Time" — is wheelchair-bound and communicates with the help of a computer because he suffers from a neurological disorder called amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS.

Hawking said he's teaming up with his daughter to write a children's book about the universe, aimed at the same age group as the Harry Potter books.

"It is a story for children, which explains the wonders of the universe," said his daughter, Lucy, a journalist and novelist. They didn't provide other details.

--no, he simply tells us to go to the Moon and Mars, where there is nothing but rocks and dust.--

For starters, the elements that those rocks and that dust is made of can actually be used to build things. There's plenty of metal up there, not to mention other elements. There is even the possibility of water in some rare spots.

--The fourth case scenario is for Doomsday believers, or people that went to see "Armaggedon" and cried when Bruce Willis said goodbye to the Tyler girl.--

If you're talking about asteroids... there have been some pretty close calls (astronomically speaking) even in the last few years. We've seen Jupiter hit by a comet... the chances of it happening to Earth in our lifetimes are tiny, but nevertheless, they're there.

...

Either way... you're coming across as a little closeted. Maybe you should read a scientific journal or two, or maybe watch a documentary that doesn't have "conspiracy" in the title.
