“Gardasil is a quadrivalent human papillomavirus recombinant vaccine that contains – you guessed it – a genetically modified virus”
Stephen Hawking, one of the world’s greatest minds, believes that genetically modified viruses are one of the greatest threats to mankind. When speaking to the Radio Times before his BBC Reith Lecture, Professor Hawking stated, “We face a number of threats: nuclear war, global warming and genetically engineered viruses.”
The fact that genetically modified viruses were ranked among the likes of nuclear war by one of the brightest individuals in the world should be very alarming. The term “genetically modified viruses” encompasses many different things. In addition to the potential for some of history’s most devastating viruses to be transformed into weapons of mass destruction, there is also an increasing presence of GM viral strains in vaccines. These may also represent a cause for concern.
Humanity’s future is in peril thanks to so-called advancements in science and technology, claims Professor Stephen Hawking, who cited“nuclear war, global warming, and genetically-modified viruses” as deadly threats to our existence.
Hawking described various “things that could go wrong” to an audience of hundreds attending the first in a series of BBC Reith Lectures, which pertain to research about black holes. He asserted the necessity for colonization of other planets to ensure survival of the human species. According to the BBC, Hawking cautioned:
What Does Hawking See As Most Dangerous to Mankind?
- “Capitalist Greed” Tops the List
- Artificial Intelligence (AI) (More)
- CERN Experiments With “God Particle”
- Contact with Extra-Terrestrial Life
The genius of Stephen Hawking shines through when climate change fails to make his list of warnings to mankind.
Peter Russell studied mathematics and theoretical physics at the University of Cambridge (UK), supervised for a while by Stephen Hawking. Then, as he became increasingly fascinated by the nature of consciousness, he changed to experimental psychology. He won several scholarships for his work at Cambridge and graduated with a first class honors degree. He then went India, where he studied meditation and Eastern philosophy, and on his return took up research into the psychophysiology of meditation at the University of Bristol. He also has a post-graduate degree from Cambridge in computer science, and conducted some of the early work on 3-D displays and what is now known as “virtual reality”.
Peter Russell was one of the first people to introduce human potential seminars into the corporate field, and for twenty years ran programs for senior management on creativity, learning methods, stress management, personal development, and sustainability. Clients have included IBM, Apple, Digital, American Express, Barclays Bank, Swedish Telecom, ICI, Shell Oil and British Petroleum.
His principal interest is the inner challenges presented by the times we are passing through. He has written several books in this area, including Meditation, The Brian Book, The Global Brain Awakens The Creative Manager, and Waking Up in Time. Peter’s latest book, From Science to God: A Physicist’s Journey into the Mystery of Consciousness, explores how a deeper understanding of the nature of consciousness leads to a new synthesis of scientific and spiritual worldviews.
