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.

I don't see how people can truly believe 100% into religion. There are SO many different religions on this earth that totally conflict with one another that it's silly. I mean, can't people see take a step back and see that not EVERYONE can be correct? What makes your religion right and mine wrong. What makes my religion right and yours wrong. It is total ignorance by us humans that creates our differences and religion is a huge problem that we have conjured up, which only creates heartache. People try and see it as a savior to each and every one of us, but step back and take a look at the way things are unfolding. Religion is hurting the world and divides us all. I understand that we cannot comprehend how exactly we got here, but fairy tales do not exist no matter how much we may want them.

In order to believe in a God that will only save you from damnation if you believe in a certain religion, you have to believe that God to be the most cruel entity to ever exist. He would be allowing everyone that lived before the religion to burn in hell, regardless of their worth. He would also be forcing everyone who lived outside the religions influence to be automatically damned. How can someone accept Jesus if they have never heard of him?
There are so many logical arguments against every religion that it shocks me that people still buy into it. Yet people will still mock the rediculousness of other peoples religion while leaving their own unquestioned. Its strange living in a transitional time where some people still believe in the ancient ways.

I think we all should shed these old silly beliefs so that we become more enlightened. Do you meen there is still ignorant stupid people out there that actually believe that human life has some sort of purpose/value and that we are more significant on this planet than tapeworms? I also believe that we should destroy all dumb, ugly, lame, diseased people and create a superior race. One that is beautiful and intellectually superior. After all that is what is is all about, survival of the fittest.
