Nothing could be worse than the world thirty years ago, except the world forty or more years ago.
The best life in the world was about thousand years ago.
I like to balance the good with the bad and try to get the whole big-picture of my reality. Others will continue to read and expound upon all the atrocities in the world which would often include looking at the advances in science as bad or even blasphemous. However, look on the bright side--if science can continue eroding religious belief at its present pace, we may one day soon actually live in a real paradise.
Scientists can and have produced things that are harmful on a grand scale.

Global desertification is picking up......and I am not so sure about the quality of the "invulnerable areas". Estonia for example has been rapidly and radically deforested during the past two decades. In our climate there's no agriculture possible without sufficient forests to circumscribe the fields. And cities are of course desert landscape from the ecological point of view.

Didn't Einstein write to President Roosevelt asking him to do just that...?see here
In 1947 Einstein told Newsweek magazine that "had I known that the Germans would not succeed in developing an atomic bomb, I would have done nothing."

Water supply is an issue. While we're getting less desert in parts of the world, we are getting more in others, and crucially many of the migration patterns are into arid and semi-arid regions with high water stress.
About five million Beijing residents are now drinking water from a tributary of the Yangtze River, two months after a key section of China's massive south-to-north water diversion project was put into operation.Beijing has received more than 50 million cubic meters of water from the south since Dec. 12, when water began to be routed from the central Chinese province of Hubei to the capital, said the Beijing south-to-north water diversion office on Thursday.The first stage of this middle route -- one of three routes involved in the project -- starts at Hubei's Danjiangkou Reservoir, which stores water from the Hanjiang River, a tributary of the Yangtze River [running out in Shanghai].A 1,432-km-long canal brings the water to China's thirsty northern regions, including the cities of Beijing and Tianjin, and the provinces of Henan and Hebei.The amount of water flowing along the middle route is expected to increase from the current 9.5 billion cubic meters to 13 billion cubic meters by 2030.Two out of the six water plants in Beijing are using the "southern water" as their sole source. The other plants are mixing the southern water with domestic water.
On a prayer mat I would think 18,115 years would feel even much longer.
How much drawing of attention away from your wife and children does all that boozing do, Einstein?
My "boozing" does help me get by.
By 2030, political correctness totalitarianism will be so much that people can't interact freely anymore. By 2030, everybody, without exception, will be constantly monitored with computer systems.By 2030, the police will start burning books.By 2030, many of us will be already at concentration camps.By 2030, some of us will keep fighting against 2030.
Do you always live your life by taking things to their absolute worst possible conclusion?
