Christopher Columbus crossed the Atlantic Ocean long time ago and conquered the Americas. The Europeans founded a lot of nations here. Huge cities have been built on this part of the planet, we can mention New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, and more. The humans have advanced a lot in technology since those years, there have been a lot of innovations and improvements.
Elon Musk wants to conquer Mars, how amazing it is! This is possible that in a not so far future we will see small human colonies on other planets and trips to the outer space will become more popular day after day. This is the beginning of a new era.
But that's not saying that he isn't imperfect, he probably does some shady shit. Elon Musk is not an authority on education, dating, parenting, medicine, nor for that matter artificial intelligence. His comments on AI and simulation theory are the ideas of others, and the fact that he said them doesn’t mean he’s asking you to believe them - nor does it make those ideas right. Even people who are worshipped and idolized are not perfect and can sometime have even more glaring flaws than ordinary people. Many incredibly successful people have an extremity (whether it be immense confidence or insane work ethic or incessant drive), and often, these extremities cause them other problems in life. But these extremities are what ultimately help them attain that level of success.
i'm actually replying this to all the people who'll start accusing me of sucking Elon's dick. I am not.
