Hi everyone,

Wow! There's at least one American Citizen who didn't think te world was created by God "since more than 4,000 years ago" Wink
Bill Gates
My favorite course of all time is now available to everyone for free.

The Big History Project is a comprehensive 13.7 billion year history of the universe. I hope all of you will become Big Historians:

Everyone

Explore 13.7 billion years of shared history and consider the big questions about our Universe, our planet, life, and humanity. From the big bang to modern day to where we are going in the future, big history covers it all.

Hi Gérard
What are we heading to is difficult to know. During my childhood nobody ever predicted(Even in Science fiction which is  based on writing rationally about alternative possible worlds or futures) what we are now : Amazing modern technology, internet, new forms of communication etc. To-day the main questions remain unanswered. Is there a sense in the evolution, is there an energy behind all this (God ?)or is it by chance ? I am nearly sure that aliens in other planets exist and we will meet them one day (The universe is so wide and there must be a sort of life somewhere else) Are we just the visible part of ourselves ? what is reality ?

Hi Muriel,

Thanks for your answer.

You are moving to philosophy and theology while I was just showing my Wonder in front of an American who is not following George W. Bush in the creationism theory.
Bill Gates would just like to teach his country-fellows about the basis of history.

Hi Gérard
The video was very interesting and I also wonder why some believe in in the creationism theory. Thank you for inserting this wonderful video in our forum. In fact I don't care what people believe in. What they act is more important. I Know who Bill Gate is (I read all about his life in internet) He is a good man for sure.

I'm not sure, but I have heard that in the States rich people think that they must give back a part of their richness; they must give back something; it is linked with religion

Hi Rémy,

Indeed!

Many religions suggest people give 10% of their earnings.

In Roman Catholism, there's something named "denier du culte", which means 10%. Nowadays, Holande land former Presidents aunched better. Wink
