I wasn`t neccessarily saying ecologists were behind Y2K predictions. I was saying that, especially since the 60s, the 70s and the 80s, there have been soo many "doomsday" scientists abd `ecologists` that have predicted soo much crap that hasn`t come true or near to comming true, that I was surprised I didn`t see any of it.
But you`re right. Quack `scientists` `doomsday-ecologists` or religious doomsday prophets shouldn`t be looked at seriously anyway.
Even funnier than the "scientists" premonitions about Y2K were doomsday insane Christians who thought the world was going to end.
But those were all quacks who were in the minority. No one cares about them. Really.
Now, Einstein, on the other hand. I care about what he had to say.
This one seems a little odd "Radio has no future. Heavier-than-air flying machines are impossible. X-rays will prove to be a hoax." -- William Thomson, Lord Kelvin, British scientist, 1899., did he really say those all in a row like that?
I think this one doesn`t really belong:"I see no good reasons why the views given in this volume should shock the religious sensibilities of anyone." -- Charles Darwin, The Origin Of Species, 1869.
He wasn`t trying to predict anything, there really isn`t a good reason to think that belief in religion and belief in evolution are mutually exclusive.
You have to remember that back then planes were just a novelty kind of thing. They couldn`t carry much of anything, and they couldn`t go much of anywhere.
that cracks me up :D
lol and rite befor the great depression too
Just makes me laugh, a message send to nobody in particular....Is that really how they thought of music back then?
"Scientists" have predicted that by now, there`d be no air left, no food left, no water left, no land left to farm, no space for people to live.
I`ve never heard of anyone having the desire to eat a "crispy" cookie.
