The Seven Predictions Of Stephen Hawking Of Earth's Demis In The Next 200 years.
Having been diagnosed with motor neuron at the young age of 21, instead of accepting what doctors said, (it was a two-year death sentence), Hawking beat the odds and end up devoting the rest of his entire natural life to the pursuit of knowledge and explaining the unknown while his discovery was profound and inspiring. His views on the future of the earth and its inhabitants were extremely pessimistic.
So here are some of Hawking's most terrifying predictions on how and when our world will meet its demise...
Counting down from number 7 :
Genetically modified vaccines will backfire on us:
The certified genius said that one of the greatest threats to mankind wasn't coming from space, but rather from what people were creating here on earth. Since scientists started toying with genetically engineered viruses to treat human illnesses, they've also discovered other possible uses for them.
For example, researchers trying to create a virus that could kill cancer cells ended up making one that could combat alcoholism. It did this by introducing certain information into the neurons that control and alcoholic's urge to drink.
Nowadays, pharmacies even combining deadly viruses into a single shot and doing some weird stuff with DNA mixing. Just take the rotate vaccine as an example, it was designed to protect kids from rotaviruses and a lot of babies get three doses before they're even six months old.
But what they don't tell you is that this medicine was made by crossing human and cow DNA and that is ridiculous. Crossing human and cow DNA to produce medicine for human? Hmm.
Once more, babies are twice as likely to have seizures during the first two weeks after they've been vaccinated. This disease is a sudden, uncontrolled electrical disturbance in the brain.
Well, pharmacies intentions might be good, the problem is that we still don't fully understand the long-term damage these vaccine concoctions might have, but every time somebody tries to warn people about the dangers of certain vaccines, mainstream opinion wins.
Aliens will invade our planet:
Hawking was a firm believer in extraterrestrial life, and he was convinced that they will eventually invade our planet. And he knows unfortunately, they probably won't come in peace. But first, we gotta go back to the beginning literally. You probably heard of the big bang theory? (if you haven't heard or don't know much about it, follow me up because I will drop the article of it).
No, not a TV show, but the explosion that gave birth to our universe some 13 billion years ago. Well, Hawking came up with what he called the multiverse theory. A multiverse is a theoretical group of multiple universes. One is our universe.
According to it, the universe as we know it is just one among tens of others that were created with their own big bangs. So basically, parallel universes. Although there's still no evidence proving that we aren't the only form of intelligent life there is... With so many planets, galaxies and universes, the chances that cosmic beings will find our floating rock in space and decide to make a pit stop are high. They'll most likely want to either destroy us... or study us like lab rats, Or they'll give us a book titled "to serve man". Remember that one from the twilight zone.
The universe will come to an end:
In his final work, a smooth exit from eternal inflation completed just two weeks before he died, Hawking predicted that our universe will eventually fade into darkness, as all the stars run out of energy and he warns that we desperately need to get other universes ASAP if we want to survive.
Robots will replace humans: Although Hawking's life basically depended on artificial intelligence, he didn't trust it at all. He once said that it might be just the worst invention in the history of our civilization because it will probably replace humans altogether. Although the AI we have today is extremely useful, Hawking warned that further development of these technologies could be a fatal mistake if aren't mindful of the risks it could bring. He predicted that once humans develop artificial intelligence, it will take off on its own and redesign itself at an ever-increasing rate.
This new form of life could eventually outsmart and outperform humans or worse....... decide to get rid of us. Hawking was sure that there was no significant difference between what a human brain is capable of, and could be archived by AI. (Hmm that's easy for a genius to say).
Check out some images of how they're made.
Despite this serious warning, more and more investments continue to be poured into the further development of these technologies.
Nuclear weapons will destroy humanity:
Hawking believed that aggression and irrational behaviour is our worst traits as humans, and If we don't change, we'll outright destroy ourselves. Yet there still no sign of conflict lessening nowadays, so the development of militarized technology and weapons of mass destruction could lead us to disastrous consequences, which would mean the end of our world.
We need to find another planet to live on:
According to Hawking, we need to find another planet to live on within the next 100 years, otherwise, we'll die out as a species because Earth has already reached the point of no return. To save ourselves from problems like overpopulation, and the scarcity of resources that comes with it, pandemic and pollution, we have to discover new worlds and become a multi-planetary species. So what are our options for inhabitable earth doppelgangers?
Although the moon has no atmosphere, it's the closest terrestrial object to our planet that has immense deposits of natural resources. Besides that, there are ancient tubes on its surface, that could be the perfect location for building human colonies. However, it has extreme seismic activity and its rare moonquakes can measure up to 5.5 on the Richter scale. Such strong quakes can be potent enough to destroy buildings and other constructions.
Mars with its toxic soil, bone-crushing cold and unbreathable atmosphere obviously isn't our idea next home but a competent approach to constructing well-protected space bases could put humanity up the initial stage of colonizing the red planet.
Ceres is a dwarf planet located in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter. Astronomers believe it could be composed of 25% water, which is good news for us, water-loving humans, on our current planet made of 71% of the stuff. This dwarf planet has even been considered as a potential location for water harvesting for long-distance missions in space. However, because it lacks an atmosphere, we wouldn't be able to experience weather changes or any colours in the sky if we live there.
Or Moon Europa?
Europa is Jupiter's fourth-biggest moon. It is covered with an icy crust that could hold entire oceans of water on our earth.
On the other hand, it's constantly being showered with deadly radiation that humans wouldn't be a to survive plus temperatures are unbearably cold there.
Or Moon Titan?
Saturn's largest moon Titan could also be a potential colony for human beings. One of the advantages of living there is that it has an atmosphere that protects the surface radiation and meteorites. It also has water on its surface.
On the downside, this atmosphere consists of 95%, 5%methane and 0% other stuff like oxygen.
Or Earth's cousin, Kepler-457b?Kepler-457b is an exoplanet that orbits a sun-like star 3500 light-years away from us and it looks exactly like our planet despite their colour difference. It could even have liquid water on its surface but we just can tell because the planet is covered with thick misty clouds almost all the time.
So where else is our next step? Hmm, post me a comment down below.
#1. The Earth will combust into fireball.
The great physicist also predicted that our planet will burst into flames in less than 600 years. By that time, the world would be so overpopulated that, our energy consumption will make the planet burn red, and the human race will perish. Hawking added that global warming will make the conditions on earth similar to those in venus.
The average temperature will be about 480°F. Sulphuric acid will rain from the sky and winds will reach a speed of up to 330 feet per second. Stephen Hawking warned us that climate change is one of the dangers we face, and it's the one we can prevent if we act now.
(I'd say that's something we definitely don't want to put off any longer).
So, is Earth's combustion into the fireball the way God will destroy the world or what do you think?
Which prediction do you think will happen? And which one is the scariest in your opinion? or non of them? Tell all readers your opinion in the comments section below.
NB: All those are predictions were made by a great physicist, 'Stephen Hawking'.
