Carl Sagan Predicted The Mess 2021 Would Be 25 years Ago

    just goes to show that 4 college degrees still doesnt make a person intelligent. i am pretty certain the HIGHEST ranking jedi was a GREEN , 2 feet tall , 200 year old dwarf. the person with the biggest balls was princess leia – a WOMAN , ADMIRAL ACKBAR was a FISH !!! Considering that back in 1977 THE PAYING AUDIENCE were 95% white and THE writer was white … Get a black writer to do the same and see what happens…. good riddence to this liberal fool !!! No wonder disney shares are in the toilet.. Sagan testifying on climate change is another example of pure ignorance. Then again he was a massive weed smoker , so im sure he never really knew the time of day it was

    His comments are purley based on Evolution, He should of been asked to prove Evolution is even a real thing ,
    As there are no inbetween animals that exist, No fish with legs that eplain the evolution of crocadiles or non winged animals that just start growing wings.. and if aliens use DNA to create what they want, Then absolutely anthing is possible that Aliens in another galaxy could look just like us.

    I gave my daughter who has a BS degree in communication a book on logic. She ripped it apart. I gave one of my nieces a book on logic and offered to help her work her way through it. It gathered dust for over a year. I had a pastor and a now former Christian friend tell me that no logic books are needed. My Brother will not talk to me on *ANY* subject for even one minute … and he gets extremely agitated if I mention a logic problem that most 5th graders can solve. My Brother-in-law bet me $200 I was wrong about this same problem. It did take a while to explain to his satisfaction, but he did pay me $200. He learned *nothing* of value from this logic problem although there was a tremendous lesson he could have learned … and on and on it goes … Yes , Carl Sagan was absolutely correct in his predictions …

    Guess he could see how corrupt The dumbocrits, the media and Jao Liden were even back then! How totally inept they were, how much the media lied.

  5. Jose Pena on January 19, 2023 at 3:27 am

    1:30 Why is it hard to depict all people as equals?
    Scholars and academia in general are bias to themselves and not the human civilization as a whole.
    Never mind the movie.

  6. - Rayopt - on January 19, 2023 at 3:28 am

    It takes a lot of energy to keep our outdoor lighting on every night. Find me a you tube where he mentions Light Pollution.

  7. Vicki B. on January 19, 2023 at 3:28 am

    Mr. Williams, you and the media are one of the main perpetrators of the “dumbing down” of Americans, because of all the lies you all spew at the behest of the government. What hypocrisy!

  8. David Griffin on January 19, 2023 at 3:29 am

    25 years ago, it was the mid-late 90s, when we already had colour film and photography.

  9. Melbournelost66 on January 19, 2023 at 3:30 am

    But do you think if it was made in China or Africa the characters would all be of their nationality and skin colour? Clearly it would be the same outcome!

  10. Angela Fedun on January 19, 2023 at 3:32 am

    Most humble assessment deferred to prayer and witts about the serious like minded

  11. rje4242 on January 19, 2023 at 3:32 am

    it’s a shame that Carl Sagan died when his helicopter was shot down over Iraq. Or was that Brian Williams?

  12. SuperGGLOL on January 19, 2023 at 3:32 am

    Wow. A white person speaking the truth. Usually, white people will ignore these subtle qualities. Carl really is one of a kind. It feels like he’s speaking on behalf of the human race. Most people speak on behalf of their own kind.

    Asians defend asians. Whites defend whites. Black defends black.

    But the best Humans will defend all beings. The people who are still primitive and animalistic in the mind will stick with their own kind, like ducks hanging around ducks. A primitive trait to have, yet many humans display these primitive qualities. Our bodies may be advanced, but our minds are far from it.

  13. Paul Galley on January 19, 2023 at 3:33 am

    ironically a great counter to some of the dumbing down we see in our main stream media is the new technology itself. I’ve learnt so much through independently produced content on youtube from how to fix an issue with my boiler to historical and geographical coverage from places and projects around the world, so much so I hardly ever watch television now and mainly watch youtube.

  14. KJV Warrior on January 19, 2023 at 3:33 am

    Carl Sagan is now a God believer!!!

  15. Keith on January 19, 2023 at 3:34 am

    Lando Calerisian is black. LOL

  16. Sierra Peaks on January 19, 2023 at 3:40 am

    Sounds like the woke movement

  17. TheSpaceCoyote82 on January 19, 2023 at 3:41 am

    Meanwhile it is MSNBC dumbing people down. Project Mockingbird nonsense. Control the narrative misleading liars.

  18. bettergetdave on January 19, 2023 at 3:41 am

    What was Carl’s contribution to the world? Did he invent or discover something?

  19. akoment on January 19, 2023 at 3:41 am

    so carl sagan predicted tiktok?

  20. Mc Jaguilar on January 19, 2023 at 3:46 am

    No. What he predicted was the comment section.

  21. SJ Automotive Design on January 19, 2023 at 3:49 am

    If he’d be alive today, he’d be considered a "conspiracy theorist". An unvaccinated one, too. 😅

  22. Viking Teddy on January 19, 2023 at 3:49 am

    Things wete already like that in the 90s. No m8ndblowing predictions there. I think he was more worried about it getting worse, not predicting a new thing.

    Rip Carl, you were one of the best <3

  23. Liam O'Dell on January 19, 2023 at 3:50 am

    Wow. Woketardism has been around for a long time. I guess the left has always been extreme embarrassments to all of humanity. MSNBC surely is.

  24. james george on January 19, 2023 at 3:51 am

    I believe us patronising English have been complaining of American stupidity for years. I feel we were right too.

  25. freemanthoughts on January 19, 2023 at 3:51 am

    That is one of the best books you could ever read. I read all his books, he was a mind. Completely made me more of a rational person and completely ditched superstitious thinking and learned to see life as it is not what is comfortable. That book is a red pill for anyone wanting to wake up from all these false prophets, superstitions,man made religions, etc etc and take a hold of their life and know that they have one shot to enjoy their life and to take advantage of it. You are literally a miracle to be alive and thinking and knowing that you are thinking and living, that right there is the gift. Nothing else is so enjoy it because eventually the flame is out and the gift like the flame is gone.

  26. ub2bn on January 19, 2023 at 3:54 am

    The Media, huh?

  27. Jay Freeman on January 19, 2023 at 3:54 am

    Wow, just wow! And I have both of those two books mentioned. I’ll be hanging onto them for sure.

  28. Tambo Snipes on January 19, 2023 at 3:54 am

    Thisngiy belives humans are by chance

  29. Billy Holmes on January 19, 2023 at 3:59 am

    It’s a movie just a dam movie

  30. Sal Paradise on January 19, 2023 at 4:00 am

    Anybody could’ve predicted that. Sagan was always junkfood.

  31. Rusa Mousika on January 19, 2023 at 4:03 am

    We truly could be so much many still hopelessly in slumber. We haven’t reached critical mass.

  32. Russell O'Keefe on January 19, 2023 at 4:04 am

    What a hyper critical a-hole.

  33. Snow Owl on January 19, 2023 at 4:04 am

    He was wrong on every facet of what he said….. 1. information coding of genes is impossible by just adding energy. 2. all intelligent beings have to be bi-pedal other wise how would they use their hands? 3. there is no evidence of life anywhere in the universe…. non on any planets in our solar system either. 4. the white race built modern civilization…. therefore is star wars movie just telling the truth? 5. God being the reason for all things fits much better than anything Carl Sagan said.

  34. Susan Robinson on January 19, 2023 at 4:04 am

    A real life Sheldon Cooper. He was brilliant.

  35. J.Robert Sergertson on January 19, 2023 at 4:06 am

    Anything to push the anti white agenda ! Face it it wasn’t for white people , there’d be no space exploration !

  36. Heyward Sanders on January 19, 2023 at 4:06 am

    One thing about the conscious: they will never allow their people to go too far, but the unconscious will allow their people to go around the world and back again. Some countries will oversee all the things they want their people to be, but you will find some areas in a country section off what they bring to the community’s game. Who is supposed to be responsible has no focus on anything, but chasing the money game. Ignoring every game gives a serious life to the community. If one is naive to all the things going on around them, and the communities choose them to lead. That only tells those who in a community that are focused on everything, is how naive the whole communities that follow the naive persons, the communities are. That is like putting crooked dice in the game as a lifetime thing, and the people train each generation to allow it to play as the real thing. Is one reason they never get anywhere, who love to blame everything except the ones that taught them to play that way.

  37. bettergetdave on January 19, 2023 at 4:07 am

    How ironic msnbc is playing this.

  38. Pauline Hogness on January 19, 2023 at 4:07 am

    didn’t starwars come out back in 1977?? thats 25 yrs ago?? Common core took this country to stupid at the speed of science!

  39. Thomas Slone on January 19, 2023 at 4:07 am

    You don’t have to be a genius to predict the predictable and humans are just predictable but not to themselves

  40. Stephen Pope on January 19, 2023 at 4:07 am

    he was a complete moron

  41. Big Discussions76 Science and Technology on January 19, 2023 at 4:08 am

    WOW. Carl Sagan saw the future 🔥

  42. hidróxido de litio on January 19, 2023 at 4:09 am

    Dr Sagan could not be more right.

  43. Chris Santo on January 19, 2023 at 4:10 am

    The celebration of ignorance is front and center in the GQP.

  44. Gravity Bound on January 19, 2023 at 4:11 am

    Let’s see now. Pigs have pink skins. Cows are mostly brown with a few white or black patches. A planet with nothing but pigs should all have pig skins. Except for a few with discoloration. So, can a planet have all white skinned people with slight variations in tone? As much as I respect Carl, he is injecting racial undertones into his science "theory". A definite leftist thinking when he should be presenting just science and factual data.

  45. HaveADay on January 19, 2023 at 4:13 am

    Plenty of Wookiee’s on the south side of Chicago that could use some metal.

  46. Jesse Colin on January 19, 2023 at 4:13 am

    I thought this guy was supposed to be smart. Disappointed.

  47. fenderchick1977 on January 19, 2023 at 4:14 am

    LOL! All the whining, sniveling, searching for injustice and disharmony around every corner…Miserable human beings surrounded by so much beauty it’s unbelievable, but they can’t see it. If he predicted misery, it’s because he predicted more would adopt his elitist outlook. He was right about that.

  48. Christopher Nichols on January 19, 2023 at 4:15 am

    These are the same people telling you trust the science and vaccines are safe?? Lmao 🤣😂🤣🤣 sorry NO REFUNDS!!it went from 100 effective to now were literally at 19percent 2half yrs later!! Oh yeah men can be women!! Diversity diversity diversity!! Lmao except for iredl of course

  49. Christian Adams on January 19, 2023 at 4:15 am

    Sounds like Carl knew this was going to happen because he helped make this happen. Liberals are the cause of all the world’s problems. They live in law and media and banking. They live in untouchable foundations and help defund governments. If liberals want change did they get the change they wanted? What has liberalism accomplished besides the downfall of western civilization?

  50. Twisted Operator on January 19, 2023 at 4:16 am

    He represented the best of humanity and still does.
