haha...well what makes me believe I am from the future? the fact that one day I was in the year 2033, and now im in the year 2008. I was witness to
a series of tests in our research facility as well as a test craft when our system's detected a massive power surge. I was with a scientist and the
radiation levels skyrocketed causing us to pass out. We woke up a bit later and flew our craft down to the planet after we detected nothing on the
moon. We have better meds 25 years from now (if you weren't sure) so I have now recovered from the radiation poisoning. However, when we landed
here things looked much different and before we could gather our bearings, we were detected by some police force. I was not captured, but my fellow
scientist was. And I have been here for some time just hiding out, and living life.
And just happened to be able to acquire 25 year old technology,configure said technology and use a keyboard! yeh right.
Look if you want a future in sci-fi writing you have at least understand where technology is heading. 25 years from now the following will have
Keyboards - gone, non existant, like mice, it will speech recognition.
Computers - gone! yep honest, instead your data and comms will be via embedded devices. Look at how the phone has changed in 10 years, now quadruple
that change (technology doubling twice in 20 years compared to 10)
Internet - IPV6 will be standard which allows every atom of every human being to have their ip address!!!!!!!!!! and send super hi def real time (by
2033 it will be 3d holographic data)
To understand the technology change, consider this: somebody in 2033 using 2008 technology is like somebody in 2008 using 1958 technology.....fat
DUH!! (hence why we KNOW this is a hoax)
However, on serious note, this type of thread is all too prevalent on ATS these days and is slowly turning it into a joke site. This is the second
new thread today I've started to read, the other was from a reptilian....I ask you. No doubt within a day or so we'll have somebody who personally
spoke to God and we will be warned to not reply unless we believe(!), absolute proof that Darwin was a satanist(!), the mysterious military leader who
must remain anonymous in case his family are turned to goo by greys etc etc.
The solution is simple. No threads without some documentary evidence for a claim. That's the way it used to be: post an article with links, which
can be cross referenced, and then discuss.
