Hawking Says Humans Must Exit Planet Earth
By James Donahue
Stephen Hawking recently told a packed audience in Hong Kong that the survival of the human race now will depend on our ability to quickly
find new homes elsewhere in the universe.
He warned that if we
can avoid destroying ourselves in the next 100 years, and work diligently toward colonizing the stars, he believes it is possible
we can have space settlements that will continue without support from Earth.
“It is important
for the human race to spread out into space for the survival of the species,” he said. “Life on Earth is at the
ever-increasing risk of being wiped out by a disaster, such as global warming, nuclear war, a genetically engineered virus
or other dangers we have not yet thought of.”
Notice that all of the
dangers listed by Hawking are man-made. We have caused global warming. It will be our decision whether to launch a nuclear
war. And it will be humans who unleash a genetically engineered virus or create other dangers “not yet thought of.”
Hawking was being polite
in his condemnation of humanity’s gross stupidity.
In a sense, he is agreeing
with Psychic and Prophet Aaron C. Donahue, who also warns that we must prepare ourselves for the looming death of our planet.
But Donahue says the planet is already past the point of no return and will die no matter what we do now. A global nuclear
war will only speed up the inevitable.
It is Donahue’s
call for the nations of the world to tear down their borders and to lay down their arms and begin to work as a single unit
toward stopping the death of our planet. In short, he calls for a one-world socialist government.
He believes we cannot
go into space without creating new bodies out of something other than carbon, capable of enduring the rigors of extreme heat
and cold, and living in a harsh environment.
But accomplishing this
will take time, and humans need to agree to work together to buy this time if they expect to succeed in keeping the human
race from going extinct.
Hawking also sees the
problems that loom. “We won’t find anywhere as nice as Earth unless we go to another star system,” he said.
But he believes that just using the technology we have now, we could have a permanent base on the moon in 20 years and possibly
a colony on Mars within 40 years.
But a colony is not a
world. And there is no guarantee that a colony can exist without some kind of pipeline to the Mother Earth.
Some of the early colonies
established by Europeans in the New World, after North America was discovered, perished when
disaster struck. The trip by ship in those days from Europe to North America was about as
difficult and time consuming to make as trips between Earth and the Moon.
Consider a colony on
Mars that gets into trouble.
Donahue is correct. We
live in bodies designed to exist only on Earth. It is known that we are unable to even propagate the species without the natural
gravitational pull of the planet under our feet.
