    Yes that would be worse, but I'm thinking less likely at this point. :)

    That would have been a far bolder prediction, but he didn't dare...and really even that IMO is not exactly radical. Between international tensions, running low on numerous resources, so on and so on....I'm not saying we doomed within 100 yrs, but it wouldn't surprise me in the least.

    Of course it is. Credentials may help but hardly equal accuracy or validity to a given person's opinion in themselves.

    And my brother died of HIV. But just this year we managed to stop an ebola epidemic under very difficult conditions. None of this is comparable with what happened with the Black Plaque of the 14th century. It is just that we no longer expect to die of disease.

    LOL. The 7 last plagues are poured out after the Great Tribulation of WW II, not in the 14th century. And the 7 last plagues will likely turn out to be far worse than anything that happened in the Middle Ages. Scientists are predicting that global warming plus urban sprawl will trigger the earth's 6th mass extinction.

    I'm sorry you lost your brother to AIDS. That's another new disease that is plaguing us. I lost a cousin my same age to AIDS.

    What a prediction. Probably a book is in the works to flesh out this prediction a little more. The earth is going to end within the next thousand years. Fascinating. Meanwhile, no one reading this now will be alive to see if it comes true. Or if it doesn't, to throw criticisms at Dr. Hawking.
    This is a man who said there is no God.

    First of all, Hawking is talking about an end to humanity, not an end to the world. Global warming and virii cause problems, but will not destroy Earth or life on Earth. Global warming would fix itself after being a disaster for people. Disease would do nothing and only might hurt other mammals or certain animals. Nuclear war would cause a problem for quite a while, but certainly isn't an end.

    700 millions years or so (as memory recalls) the earth was practically frozen over from pole to equator and life not only survived but went on to rapidly diversify. 65 million years ago, giant asteroid and we are here as a result.

    Jesus is a Terrestrial (or at least half-terrestrial). His Father, on the other hand, is pretty much a time-traveling ET who follows the Star-Trek Directive (only interfere in the life of a planet when it is necessary).

    Wrong. Hawking is talking primarily about the end of life on earth within a thousand years or so. He says humanity will likely survive (on Mars). That agrees 100% with what the Revelation says.

    A.I. is not a fundamentalist. But thanks for playing.
