FAKE NEWS? Humans could be extinct in 1,000 years

Hi Producer/Host, 

If my information is still correct, I have a parallel-universe interview of science vs. science fiction that could be a great fit for your show.

According to Steven Hawking, humans could be extinct on Earth within the next 1,000 years. The scientist suggests that the only way for humanity to avoid a mass extinction is to find another planet to inhabit. (1) Battlefield Earth, a New York Times best seller, corroborates Hawking’s eerie predictions.

In the year 3000, there are no countries, no borders, no cities... Earth is a wasteland. And man is an endangered species. As the leader of the evil Psychlos, Terl and his race have taken over the world's natural resources and disregarded everyone and everything else. It's up to Jonnie "Goodboy" Tyler, a brave human, to battle the Psychlos and restore normalcy to the world.

Compare that to the present-time statement of Steven Hawking, "If aliens ever visit us, I think the outcome would be much as when Christopher Columbus first landed in America, which didn't turn out very well for the Native Americans.” Hawking expanded: "I imagine they might exist in massive ships, having used up all the resources from their home planet. Such advanced aliens would perhaps become nomads, looking to conquer and colonize whatever planets they can reach." (2)

In Battlefield Earth, Mr. Hubbard talks about an alien race, the Psyclos, discovering one of the Voyager probes, its gold record, directions to Earth, coming here, wiping out the population in a matter of minutes and mining it for its resources.

  • What are the similarities and differences between these two viewpoints on the year 3000?
  • How do these two viewpoints connect?

Journalist and Author, Jim Marrs, can give a culturally entertaining comparison to the how these two views – science to science fiction – correlate. Mr. Marrs has appeared on ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, CSPAN, the Discovery, Learning and History Channels. He's the NYT bestselling author of an in-depth investigation of UFOs, Alien Agenda, published by HarperCollins Publishers. (3)

Battlefield Earth was this summer's #1 bestseller in the categories of Sci-Fi, Trade Paperback and Audiobook.

In a gripping science vs. science fiction interview, Marrs can speak to the following:

  • How is it that Hawking predictions were detailed in Battlefield Earth by L. Ron Hubbard?
  • Did Hawking and Hubbard know each other?
  • When Battlefield Earth was first published, Mr. Hubbard hadn't done any fiction writing in some years. Why did he get back into it?
  • Why is Battlefield Earth being re-released?
  • When it originally written, what was Mr. Hubbard's purpose of writing it?
  • How the audiobook version was created (featuring Grammy and Hugo award-winning narrator, Stefan Rudnicki, and a cast of 67 voice actors portraying 198 characters, over 150,000 sound effects and full cinematic music score)

About Battlefield Earth Author, L. Ron Hubbard:

In addition to his work as the Founder of Dianetics and Scientology, L. Ron Hubbard stands as among the world’s most enduring and widely read authors of popular fiction, with international sales of some fifty million and a body of work spanning fifty years. 

Battlefield Earth: A Saga of the Year 3000, described by science fiction legend A. E. van Vogt as an unqualified masterpiece, the 428,750-word epic was not only a sensational international bestseller, but the recipient of numerous international literary awards. It has since been published in scores of nations, translated into dozens of languages and serves as a model work in several colleges and universities.
