Stephen Hawking: We Need To Get Off Earth Before It’s Too Late

Professor Stephen Hawking recently said that the only future for the human race is to live off Earth somewhere in space. 

He said the humanity’s biggest failing was its ‘aggression’ which ‘threatens to destroy us all’. report:

Professor Hawking was giving Californian Adaeze Uyanwah, 24, a tour of London’s Science Museum today after she beat 10,000 international entrants to win a trip round London with celebrity guides.

And speaking at the museum, Professor Hawking said that he believes the ‘long-term future’ of the human race is in space travel and revealed that he considered ‘aggression’ humanity’s biggest failing.

‘The long-term future of the human race must be space and that it represents an important life insurance for our future survival,’ he said.

‘It could prevent the disappearance of humanity by the colonisation of other planets.’

He added: ‘The human failing I would most like to correct is aggression.

‘It may have had survival advantage in caveman days, to get more food, territory or a partner with whom to reproduce, but now it threatens to destroy us all.

‘A major nuclear war would be the end of civilization, and maybe the end of the human race.’

The theoretical physicist urged people to be more empathetic, saying that empathy ‘brings us together in a peaceful, loving state.’

    The exclusive report, the reasons behind this human behavior, the step by step definitions which lie at the foundation for this seemingly chronicle base trend, problematic either yes the solution lies ahead of us, and it is possible…We are already here, we will bring the same out there… for a highly ranked scientist and valued as highly intelligent world class icon, I am missing out on the same view, level either acceptance for this Man to be rated as currently stated as such… And why? Because he still seems to exist and thrive from and by one platform science which is known to sustain a tunnel vision and holds on to a singular widespread trend of embracing only partly of the elements which are scientific based from the perception of the industry, research consensus traits seen as, while this only consists on a human error based existence, still in evolution to become divinely truth based ”finishing touch” so …. hmm contradictory vectors should be easily proven by science as well? or just by logic, reasoning and experienced wisdom based?

    Any interest for what I can add to the sum of the whole?
    It is freely available, which already might be against all odds, within this product, market, consumer, services based economy driven realm of perceived reality…

    ? With high regards though to Mister Stephen Hawkins extraordinary efforts, and intentions, we just need to put the pieces together, and it might come from a place nobody expects it to come from? because of prejudiced expectancy, en preconception which is common around this present day society, not?

    Well then prepare yourself steven hawking, cause once V Putin decides to use that final solution, you’ll be really pissed that you didn’t built a bunker.

    If we’re that dangerous, maybe we are destined to be eradicated just like destroying a parasite. We have to somehow eliminate the hostility and remove this defect in our very DNA before allowing this to leave the planet. Can you imagine being stuck in a space station Or compact enclosure with a homicidal maniac?
