In a new BBC documentary called Expedition New Earth, Dr. Hawking listed a myriad of dangers that cut his thousand-year estimate down to a mere 100 years, including climate change, asteroid strikes, epidemics and overpopulation as the greatest dangers facing the world today. With multi-national militaries in Syria and off the coast of North Korea, many would add global war with nuclear overtones to the list.
Dr. Hawking has suggested two solutions to the impending doom. While one of his proposals defies mankind’s Biblical mandate on earth, the other actually comes surprisingly close to tallying with Jewish end-of-days scenarios – albeit not perfectly.
His first idea is that mankind “must continue to go into space for the future of humanity,” as he said at a lecture last year. “I don’t think we will survive another 1,000 years without escaping beyond our fragile planet.”
Yuval Ovadia, an end-of-days lecturer and filmmaker, criticized Hawking on Biblical grounds for suggesting that the solution is to flee.
