Hawking Says Humans Must Exit Planet Earth

 

By James Donahue

 

World-renowned astrophysicist 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.
