There is a new theory that strikes against the hairs of Einsteins relativity theory.
A guy called Harava came up with it and it really does make some sense.
Here you can read about it : Link. ( ATS thread by Aquarius1
I was introduced to it just an hour ago. On a Dutch site.
In his theory he claims time and space are two separate things which will mean that time would not be effected, traveling at light speed.
When we are going to travel around in intergalactic space, at speeds that we can not reach right now, it will be pleasant to visit your family once
you return... Well... Instead of your great grand children.

The sun will not be stable for ever...
And the Earth is hardly stable now.
Don't worry about the sun. We will have at least a billion years before it might get to hot below our feet.
To say the earth is hardly stable is quite hilarious. As the instability tends to be quite normal and stabilizability is only a concept of our
imagination. We simply don't live long enough to assume that our time is how it's supposed to be all the time.
The Doctor that is responsible for the disappearance of small pox makes an even bolder claim. He says the human race will be extinct within a hundred

( Original article from the Australian. )
Dr. Hawking claims we will go the way of the Dodo if we don't colonize space. I agree.
More species are extinct then that there are walking the earth right now. It is a natural unavoidable certainty that we will either go extinct or
evolve beyond our human self.
We live on a planet where we have become arrogant and say, we own the place, we control it... Well, IMHO we are idiots. This planet is about 12.000 KM
from one side to the other in a straight line through the middle. Our Atmosphere ends about 80 km from the ground up. ( Correct me if I'm wrong.)
Yet... we are only able to survive by ourselves, without the use of technology, a mere 8 km from the ground up. Even then... 8 km will kill you just
How big would be the chance to find a part of space, that resembles that very small layer of biosphere for our bodies to be able to survive. An
Space will end the human species even faster, as our history teaches us that evolution will speed up when the the environment changes. Ok. We will be
humanoid for a while...
What I don't understand is the concept that the human race needs saving.
Natural selection will determine whether or not the species survives.
Eventually, this planet will recover from the ravages and excesses the human race has subjected it to thus far.
Insistence is futile.
I agree insistence is futile. Yet mankind is capable to influence the outcome.
To anyone who answered yes to extinction, please remove yourself from the gene pool in a quiet eco friendly way...all gone...ok.
I think I'll stay... Maybe I can invest my genes for good of the human race and spread my positive and loving characteristics.
The way we all act right now, I don't feel we deserve the the priviledge to wreck another planet.
It seems we are currently with more people on the planet at the same time then all of the people that lived on the earth in the past before we got to
The population has been reduced to an estimate of only 2000 individuals around 70.000 years ago. A nasty virus outbreak could have wiped us of the
But we survived with nothing. We did not burn fossil fuels, and we did not need everything we consume into nothingness. We only need water and food.
Both will thrive when mankind has been diminished to only a few. We are everywhere we can live on the planet and there will bound to be survivors from
any possible event.
We will not go extinct that easy, because we have the intelligence to create ways to make the best from a worst case scenario.
Well... as long as we will experience an event anytime soon, before there are to many species extinct.
Currently we are in the middle of a mass extinction event. Humans are directly and indirectly responsible for the extinction of countless of species.
We have assimilated the habitat of countless of species but only a few adjust. We have emptied the seas and they are predicted to be empty withing 50
years. ( Scientists conclusions )
We have poisoned, killed, destroyed and so on and the numbers have already changed in statistics.
Lets hope it is not to late when we will finally wake up and adjust OUR ways...
There only has to be one key species for the food chain to collapse. I've read it is not going well with phytoplankton. To loose the very foundation
of the food chain can't be good.
Plankton however thrives and even lives long and dies from old age since we fished the fish that eat it to a point the balance is off.
The billions of plankton corpses sinks to the bottom where bacteria start digesting them, releasing massive amounts of Co 2 in the oceans. Co 2 that
replace oxygen leaving huge parts of the seas without oxygen... Death zones where nothing survives except for jellyfish.
Hmm... I wonder if jellyfish taste any good.
