    Sorry for having besmudged your hero.

    The point made was - everyone looking at those numbers will come to the conclusion, that there is a good chance that humans will not stick around till the end. (Google: percent of species that have died out: Of all species that have existed on Earth, 99.9 percent are now extinct.)

    The question is, are you emotionally motivated enough to make that your 'enlightning message' to the people? The thing you want to be known for. The lesson you want to imprint on others as a result of your life?

    And also with what perspective? Climate change discussion wasnt around then, so the aim was to do it to better humanity? If he can make sense of that - George Carlin was pretty convinced about his own importance in the 200.000 years perspective.

    Doesnt mean that he was wrong (there needs to be more humility), but he wasnt humble in the least bit, nor was he shy about promoting his importance.

    So whatever conclusion you drew (If we not more humanity, we are destined to die (death cult perspective?), as the prophet George Carlin said.) is misconstrued.

    It is an "emotional truth".

    Be excellent to each other.

    Great bait. Almost as good as the Election threads. Gonna have to give it a 7/10 however, just because of the opening thesis being so short.

    So during the lockdowns - no, thats too much regulation.
    But once vaccine is available to essential workers - please designate me, designate me now!
