That's on my list of "ignore this one" books. I have often wondered what would happen is there was a major catastrophe that wiped out most of mankind, and ten thousand years in the future archeologists were uncovering and trying to decipher our civilization. With all the bronze statues we have they'd probably think we had lots of gods, but I wonder what they would make of hula hoops.

Yawn. Boring. World without humans. Natural and wonderful. We're impermanent and unimportant. There is no God, just Gaia. Yawn.

On the other hand, I loved "Star Trek: The Motion Picture". Kirk, and Decker, got even V'ger to see that there is a Creator, and that, without the carbon units, there's just no damn point to it all.

Recently read a series of articles in U.S. News about 1957. Amazed (but not really) that they would site 1957 is the year we first noticed that there was a process of green house gases that might cause manmade global warming, and then follow that with fawning over Betty Friedan and The Feminine Mystique without ever mentioning that Betty Friedan wrote an article on "The Coming Ice Age" the very next year, in September of 1958, published in Harper's Magazine. It would have been a great segue. But that doesn't fit the template. It's always been getting hotter, and nobody has ever said any different. And we've always been at war with Eurasia.
