2010: Scientists will finally prove that the human soul exists after death
I doubt it. How could the hypothesis be falsified? If not, then it is not science.
2010 – 2012: Countries of Europe, America and the Pacific region will unite into large regional blocks.
Well, there's already the EU, NAFTA and ASEAN, so that is not enormously radical, unless they mean the total extinction of national sovereignty in those places.
2015-2025: Radioactive wastes will be removed from Earth and launched into space;
Sounds like a plan.
2016: The world will begin to run out of oil reserves.
Peak oil - yawn....
2022: Man will land on Mars
Harrumph, when I was a lad we thought it would be done in the 1970s. Somewhere I have a set of tea cards illustrating it.
Courtesy of google, here goes:
2029: Cyborgs will see the light
I wonder which denomination.
2069: A military conflict between Russia and China for Siberian territories will occur;
I'd expect it to happen a lot sooner than that.
2075: Euthanasia will be legalized in all countries;Fancy. Including the Vatican. With a bit of luck I'll be long dead by then.
2110: Transsexuals will make five percent of the Earth’s population.
I doubt it.
