Sameer, very interesting. I don't think the Christians would agree on the last bit though.  Roll Eyes

Do you believe in luck?  
 
For how many years have sentient humans (homo-sapiens) existed? I would say at least a few million years.  Now in all that time, what are the odds that any one of us are alive in this short time slice in the 21'th century when compared to over a few million years of sentient existence.  I don't really believe in reincarnation but isn't it strange that you are alive right now as we speak when the odds are less than 1 in a million?  Shocked  
 
There is obviously a flaw in my argument somewhere (e.g. there were less humans in the old days) but to tell you the truth, I don't really believe in luck either...

I thought that I had heard that there were more people on the earth now, than the rest of history up to now combined. If that's true, then I'd say the chances are around 1/2.  
 
Even if it's not true, someones gotta be alive right now. why not us?

True, and why would it be luckier to live in this slice of the 21st century, than in any other century ? We may know stuff people back then didn't know, but that doesn't mean we're luckier, eh ?

It's interesting at the start, but it gets patently ridiculous at the end with its predictions of the future. Those predictions are likely to be as accurate as predictions made 30 years ago that we'd all be driving flying cars, have robots to serve us, and be wearing silver clothing by 2000..

True, but they are all impractical for the time being, we don't have AI,. but there are bartending robots, Flying cars, are not possible without huge prices and silver clothing is too expensive and heavy.
 
If the predictions were 100% accurate it would be scary, but they are only predictions.

Yes, but when predictions are consistently 99.9% inaccurate, they're superfluous.
Predictions should at least be grounded in some sense of reality. I mean, it doesn't make sense to say things like, "Speed skaters now finish the 10 kilometers 3 minutes faster than they did 50 years ago, in 150 more years they'll be finished before they started".
That's totally bonkers; yet the kind of predictions people get away with.

Excellent point. It makes predictions, but it assumes a constant rate of progress, something quite impossible beyond a certain point (as some things like finishing a race before you started), and disregards the fluctuating variables of life.  
I have to say I agree with Three Hand's opinion... I would like to think so, but there is no way for me to find out for sure either way, so I guess I will just wait and see and enjoy the time I do have living.

Obviously to an extent it can occur, but there is always a limit, and then it declines. E.g. Stock markets, the computer world, sprinting records.

Seven of Nine: Human attitudes toward death are perplexing.  
Tuvok: How so?  
Seven of Nine: Too much importance is placed on it. There seem to be countless rituals and cultural beliefs designed to alleviate their fear of a simple biological truth: all organisms eventually perish.  
Tuvok: I take it the Borg have no fear of that biological truth?  
Seven of Nine: None. When a drone is damaged beyond repair, it is discarded. But its memories continue to exist in the collective consciousness. To use a human term, the Borg are immortal.  
Tuvok: You are no longer part of the Collective. You are mortal now like the rest of us. Does that disturb you?  
Seven of Nine: My connection to the Borg has been severed. But the Collective still possesses my recollections, my experiences. In a sense, I will always exist.  
Tuvok: Fascinating. That must be a great relief.  
Seven of Nine: [reflective] Yes. It is.

No, all that remains is simply heat, in this universe. As what all energy ends up as.
Actually, it's wrong to say the human body produces energy, since conservation of energy means it is never produced nor destroyed. We just transform one form of energy into another, increasing entropy as we go along.
