I used to think that Hawkings was a smart man, after all he got a robot to speak for him, but nevermind that .
I think that yes we should leave Earth but not in a mass exodus kind of way, yes we should start to colonise other planets, but there lies the problem
, at present we are too violent toward ourselves and the other inhabitants of this planet , let alone any others we head out and meet .
We WILL need to change our ways before even thinking about leaving our world, we fight over trivial things, like money ( with is a made up imaginary
form of control), we fight over oil ( a great way of ensuring that we not only poison ourselves but the planet we live on as well), we fight over
religeon ( we have ours and any intelligent life we encounter may have theirs, are we going to change them? or them us?), we kill ourselves over the
smallest things , a look, a word, a fish and chip supper , how mature is that?
We need as a race to put aside things that devide us, religeon, political beliefs, personal issues such as homophobia, race and sex and treat each
other with respect and understanding and tolerance, maybe when we realise that we've been childish, then we can start to think about leaving our
If we the people allow the military to run things as they and the banks do then we will have no hope of getting offworld, we are too settled in our
kill or be killed attitude fighting over scraps that this world is rapidly running out of, which in my humble opinion is why we are now fighting yet
another RELIGEOUS war, sure its labelled 'war on terrorism' but really look at the big picture of it, after all the MSM ALWAYS bleat on about
ISLAMIC this and ISLAMIC that, they never say what these 'terrorists' are really fighting about do they? sure some of you will say 'they hate our
way of life', but then again you wouldn't defend their way of life would you?, its what their used to and your used to what you are so what are the
wars really about?. IMO scraps.
As for life out amongst the stars ( after we've matured anough to stop bickering between ourselves and actuallly work together to make a better world
for the generations that follow ours), we will find that they are probably much the same as us, there will be good ones, bad ones and those that
couldn't give a rats nuts about us, which is pretty much the same as we are now, all we could do is find out about them and if they don't want to
talk to us then fine we'll leave them alone, only they have at least utilised the technology they have made to get off the ground so to speak, you
really should be treating others as you would wish to be treated , the military should be defending us as a whole not running our lives as they do
seeing as we are too lazy to do it ourselves, we let others dictate to us how we live ( in our best interests of course).
The good ones would want us to learn about ourselves, our universe and everything else, the bad ones would probably end up having to deal with the
military after all thats what their there for isn't it? to defend us?. and the nonplussed as I said earlier , don't want to talk to us?, fine you go
your way , we'll go ours, bye.
Non Terrans may be more scared of us at present that we are of them, but if it ever came down to a firefight in our present stage we wouldn't have a
chance , so we need to realise we are not the end all and be all of existance, we are not the centre of the universe and our God may not be greater
