What does the future hold in store for mankind and the world?

Do you at times wonder what the world will be like in a certain number of years? Things getting worse or better?

Hi;

Some people think it will stay the same and some think it will get worse but does anyone think it will get better?

Re: What does the future hold in store for mankind and the world?

I thought it was already?! But now that it is, what can we do about it? Each person that is here wants the chance to stay for a bit. Should we keep the old and dump the young? After all, the old were here first. Or, should we dump the old and keep the young?

What if we find that it is already colonized?

Pretend that it is not. Ask more people to go there, get killed in the meantime. Population issues, solved.

Re: What does the future hold in store for mankind and the world?

Hey there, bobbym and Chris2. Maybe in your part of the world, there exists overpopulation or population explosion, but also in other parts of the world, such as in developing countries, under population is actually evident. (So, let's say on a world range or level, the earth hasn't been filled to capacity. In fact, the earth has abundant resources to cater for more people. )
It is interesting to note that,  there are some people-though they may be few-who believe that the world will be better in the not too far future. This group of people are also of the view that the betterment of the world will not be made possible by humans but rather,  through divine intervention. For about 6000 years, all kinds of rulership have been tested and experimented: dictatorship, military regime, communism, socialism, monarchy, democracy, etc. Now, the question is, where has all of this led mankind? Herein lies the answer: Man has dominated man to his injury.

Isn't it also strange that, advancements and improvements in technology and knowledge have not helped in any way to lengthen man's life span? For example, diseases taking away loved ones despite medical advancements, many dying as a result of wars despite attempts to attain world peace?

Re: What does the future hold in store for mankind and the world?

Hi;

It is true that the earth could support a much larger population but it can not feed, clothe, educate and most importantly, control that population.

Technology, no matter how good it looks from the outside is based on fossil fuels. We are the species that burns dead dinosaurs as our fuel supply. As long as we depend on it, social change can never occur as we will always be at the mercy of the those who control it.

World peace, world health, these are just buzzwords, mere slogans...

Re: What does the future hold in store for mankind and the world?

Hi bobbym. I think I have to agree with you on that one.
Couldn't it also be that the change will be possible when there exists one world government? But who will be the ruler? Hmmmmmm.........

Unless they put me in charge there will not be any improvement. But why on earth would they do that?

Hi bobbym from Bumpkinland.

LOL. (ruler bobbym)

Why on earth would they do that? Because nothing great is achieved or made successful without unity and oneness of mind.

Hmmm, that is what they say in the textbooks. Remember that is exactly how dictatorships are structured.

Re: What does the future hold in store for mankind and the world?

I don't think our bobbym would be a dictatorial ruler, unless you don't think yourself that you qualify???
In any case, what's your stand on religion?

Re: What does the future hold in store for mankind and the world?

I might be considered a bit harsh, I would insist that the math community do experimental mathematics. This would cause a whopping 97.4 % of them to form a hit squad and have me assassinated.

There are a lot of religions to choose from. It is hard for me to think that there is not one for almost everybody.

I salute you bobbym. You believe in the Bible right? I saw some Bible quotations you posted somewhere in this section.
