This is just insulting
I sometimes wonder if these whatever you want to call them spent as much time dreaming up ways to for example build roads and get clean drinking water to the 3rd World it might not be so insulting when they call themselves Scientist. Oooops my mistake why not just use the Geneses Effect. Lets hope by the time we can travel interstellar distances everybody here will have electricity 24/7 and clean drinking water.
What a crock of #$@%^ it's Science Fiction 100%, just because this (nope he does not deserve to be called that in this show) person says it's not Science Fiction just shows how silly he is.
Total waste of time.
