[MSNBC] Physics turns from fission to future - Page 4

post #31 of 47
There are some things Michio says that make sense.

The Internet helping stop war and making the world a democratic place; sure. Before the internet people had channel 6, the "non-biased" news paper and their government to tell them what was right and wrong, good or bad. Public opinion had much less of a voice and ears and it would never make it to the other side. Most of the population was kept in the dark. Take a look at China... why do they want to dictate their side of the internet again?

Living longer is plausible, not even plausible but will absolutely happen.

Internet contact lenses are probably a bit further away than Kaku predicts, imo.

I didn't read the article, but if he thinks like that then he has absolutely no clue how software works.

Didn't this guy read Asimov?

i agree. but that wasnt really the point i was making. seemed like some people here thought that the guy said computers would replace ALL. jobs. when in fact he didnt. i rly dont want to start an argument here. esp since we do agree with each other.

I lost a lot of respect for Dr.Kaku once turned to religion for an explanation to the universe.

That is after he collapsed under his own genius of course.

why? imo, an impersonal unconscious god of nature (like Einstein's god) is not a cop out.

Turned to God, but anyways I would love to hear your explanation for existence.

Just because we may not have a full explanation now doesn't mean we should than just assume archaic beliefs from thousands of years ago are right. Everything we have learned the last few hundred years should be proof enough that we didn't know jack**** back then about much of anything, much less the origins of the universe.

On topic Michio Kaku is nothing but a futurist who likes publicity, don't put much stock in what he says. I especially like his explanation of nuclear waste, he doesn't even sound like hes knows what he is talking about. He has always had a clear anti nuclear agenda and he has and does twist facts to fit that agenda.

Thousands of years ago... bunch know nothings building the first computers prior to J.C., geometry, applied mathematics, getting close to to integral calculus. They may have started science and physics 2500 years ago but boy were they stupid. They didn't even know the world was a sphere! Oh wait, they did... and accurately estimated the earths circumference (Eratosthenes, 200BC). You shouldn't be critical of things you don't know anything about. Today we do not know one thing about the origin of the Universe. zip zero zilch. And when you know nothing, it is always good to hear what someone else has to say.
