      2982 seems a bit optimistic. Will we really last as long as that?

        The “Space Age Cargo Cults”* think so. :)

        * “The cults that won Cargoist adherents among the citizens of advanced nations were not always obviously religious. The Type II belief held that great technological breakthroughs would´╗┐ inevitably occur in the near future, and would enable man to continue indefinitely expanding the world’s human carrying capacity. This was a mere faith in a faith…”

          Very good point. There seems to be a definite religious quality to some predictions about scientific advancement. A good example would be the idea that we can achieve immortality by downloading our personalities onto computers.
