I don’t have the rest of this conversation, but it is on a discussion about “Bill Maher’s” television show; “Politically Incorrect” and “Ray Kurzweil’s” appearance.
Richard Brown:Yes it was, anybody notice the way the other panelist’s were looking at Ray in the first part of the interview? It was almost like they were in awe just to be in the presence of such an insightful and wise prophet! LOL They were hanging on his every word! After he spoke the first time at the opening, I thought Bill was going to direct back at him, and I thought, “HA HA,
They’re going to discard the topic list, or show outline, or whatever they call it and use the time to try to ask the “wise one” what he saw in their futures, and what they should do! Which makes me ask, has anyone else noticed, that traditionally, most people who have proffered something so outrageous as “the end of humanity as we know it,” kind of prophesy is usually dismissed as insane, crazy, or just plain wrong? Normally, and in a case of science, all the leading minds will come together and openly prove the person wrong, even if obscure proofs, need to be used to do it? Then, the person is usually set aside and ignored until, proven wrong and forgotten? Anybody notice how NONE of this is done with regard to Mr. Kurtzweils theory? Everyone tends to agree, science, academia, world governments, leaders in Economy, and in many cases, religious leaders as well? Nobody has really challenged him successfully in open debate. No one has said, “if.” because most can see it too, and it becomes “when.”Like ·
