Stephen Hawking has somewhat solved time travel and he’s about to explain black holes (again), but he’s also now delving into the world’s potential Achilles heal: Science and technology. Hawking made an appearance on Radio Times just ahead of the BBC Reith Lecture where he is set to explain the science of black holes. But Hawking digressed, somewhat, and began to discuss how man’s fate could be sealed to live amongst the stars. Hawking exclaimed that advances in science and technology, such as nuclear weaponry and genetically engineered viruses, are the real threat.
“We are not going to stop making progress, or reverse it, so we must recognise the dangers and control them,” he said via MSN.
It is interesting to note his use of the term, genetically engineered viruses. So what could he have possibly meant by such a statement? Polio is now respreading worldwide and it is consistently being traced back to the vaccine itself. Or maybe we could look back to July of 1986, when the U.S. approved a genetically altered vaccine for Hepatitis B. This is what’s found in common vaccines today, such as HPV, flu, and rotavirus. Here is a description of the Rotarix vaccine.Description:
Rotarix is a genetically engineered vaccine made of live attenuated human rotaviruses. Other ingredients include: amino acids, dextran, sorbitol, sucrose, and Dulbecco’s Modified Eagle Medium (DMEM). DMEM contains sodium chloride, potassium chloride, magnesium sulfate, ferric (III) nitrate, sodium phosphate, sodium pyruvate, D-glucose, concentrated vitamin solution, L-cystine, L-tyrosine, amino acids solution, L-glutamine, calcium chloride, sodium hydrogenocarbonate, and phenol red.
It isn’t difficult to see where Hawking’s sentiments are derived from. So if he wasn’t speaking to vaccines, what was he speaking to? I’d say that his communications are very clear on the matter, vaccines are in fact a threat. In fairness, Hawking didn’t associate all vaccines with everything bad, he merely suggested that genetically engineered viruses, which are found in vaccines, are a threat to our civilization. Pharmaceutical companies are indeed, poisoning us every day, and I’m not just talking vaccines. It’s a nefarious, greedy industry that’s ran astray from any good intentions.
The good news is that Hawking suggests we will be able to escape at some point by moving to space. So, maybe some day, the only place we will be able to escape the wrath of mandatory vaccines and pharmaceutical medications is up in the stars.
Hawking turned 74 recently and has suffered at the hands of a debilitating disorder for over 50 years. However, that hasn’t stopped his mind from resolving complex matters of physics. He considers himself more fortunate than most. Hawking was at one time, Isaac Newton’s replacement as a Lucasian professor of mathematics. It is safe to say that this man knows a thing or two and maybe, specifically, in this case, more of us should take a moment to listen to him.
