Time for humans to start thinking about moving says Hawking
For many years humans have dreamed of one day colonizing other planets and moons. Although research would be an important reason for the foreign bases, could the survival of the human race depend on whether or not we can colonize other planets? World-renowned astrophysicist Stephen Hawking recently said that
humans need to colonize a planet or moon because
the Earth might face destruction -- A man made disaster -- global warming being a good example -- or natural disaster could potentially destroy the planet.
Although he believes humans can colonize the moon within 20 years, and establish a sufficient base on Mars within 40 years, humans "won't find anywhere as nice as Earth," unless we visit another solar system. The moon looks to be like an ideal place for a potential new colony. Not only does it appear to have everything needed to sustain humans, ice has also been found at its poles.
Nations have been thinking about colonizing other planets for years.
earlier reported that
NASA is working towards a permanent moon base
that would be a stepping stone to allow astronauts to explore Mars firsthand. Swedish researchers
are also studying
different ways to have a self-sustaining colony on the moon.

When the world leaders of the most power nations have their sight on glorifying the ego and making mass profit it's very difficult politicaly to sway people on this subject.
I mean they're mere human beings, these leaders, many with very small IQ's and they can't even imagine the prospect of moving out off Earth.
Especially when their religion tells them Christ will land soon and the Apocolypse will occcur.

You mean Christ isn't coming back to bring me to heaven? Whoa, you are blowing my mind! Certainly all of your "scientific" evidence is simply placed there by the devil to obfuscate the truth. Everyone knows that words written by human beings thousands of years ago are the words of god because those humans told us so! Certainly they wouldn't simply say that so that we would listen to them.
It's fun living with our evolutionary ancestors. Imagine if someone wrote a new addition to the bible and told us that God wrote it through him. We would call him crazy. Why do we then believe the original authors weren't just crazy? Takes about 2 minutes of thought to understand the beliefs of the majority of people on the planet are garbage.
