I bet this same guy sees William Shatner in commercials, and says, \"hey look, it's captain kirk!\". I just wonder if he knows that Kirk isn't real...

No, it was thought impossible. Not illogical.

You are now officially unworthy to bear the name of Starscream.

If the thought of space flight was illogical 1000 years ago it was because humans weren't sure that there was anything other than a firmament with stars stuck in it up there.

I don't get it.

You know Spock is fictional, tight?

You're a fine one to be talking about a fictitious character who acts illogically.
9/12/2010 1:21:20 AM
Spock? You use an imaginary being to show that logic is illogical?
Space flight was not illogical 1000 years ago, it was just not possible.
Logic does not mean what you think it means.

Spock only ever acted illogically if Kirk was in danger. Love > Logic.

You fail yet again, Starscream.

And this, coming from someone who has taken the name from a character in "Transformers" - and a Decepticon, no less (so that flags up some concerns, re. his attitude) - an animation/film series that is, by definition, Science Fiction.
PROTIP: "2001: A Space Odyssey" was released in 1968. A year before Armstrong's 'One Small Step For Man'. The original story said film was based on, by Arthur C. Clarke appeared years before then. As far back as 1945, Clarke even postulated the idea of electronic devices placed in geosynchronous orbit, to relay radio transmissions. When the first telecommunicatons satellite 'Telstar' was created, guess who they recruited as the project's chief technical advisor? (remember: much of the internet today relies on telecommunications satellites). I guess you have a logical explanation for that, eh?
The 1977 novel by Craig Thomas - and the 1982 Clint Eastwood film based on such - "Firefox". Years before the concept of Stealth aircraft had even entered the public consciousness; certainly before the F117-A seeing action in the 1st Gulf War, and the B2 in Kosovo. What next? Project Aurora, the hypersonic plane in Afghanistan? (fact: one is based here in the UK, at RAF Macrihanish)
Oh, and remember the film "Stealth"*, several years ago? The UCAV E.D.I., with it's 10 Tb/sec Quantum Processor-based AI? Quantum Computers already exist.
The Science Fiction of the past, is the Science Fact of today.
*- I'm absolutely positive, that film was based on "The Capricorn Quadrant" by Charles Ryan. In which a new Russian stealth plane goes rogue, and a race is on by the West to claim it's secrets, and Russia to stop it from falling into their hands. Meanwhile, said plane - which has an AI, coupled with a Fusion Beam Emitter (a weapon infinitely more powerful than even a Particle Beam Laser) could potentially start WWIII.

"1000 years ago the thought of Space flight was Illogical."
That's because everyone, even the "scientists" of the time, were controlled by the church, which dictated the entire nature of reality to suit their own political ends.

As a Christian Trekie I apologise for this pillock.
5/10/2011 7:44:52 PM
People this stupid should be exterminated.
3/26/2012 11:54:34 PM
Spock? You are aware that he's a fictional caracter, right, and that we haven't really visited other planets yet?
3/27/2012 2:46:23 AM
That's not what "illogical" means.
10/24/2012 7:53:16 PM
1000 years ago the thought of space flight may have been considered impossible, not illogical. However, you really have to be thick to take your cue from a science fiction movie. That's like taking physics lessons from a James Bond film. Or from the Back To The Future trilogy.

Because a hundred years ago space travel was a very unlikely prospect. The exercise of logic is completely within the perimeters of ones knowledge.
Spocks knowledge of science fields was unparralled on the ship and even his knowledge of Earth history was greater than the crew. Raised Vulcan, a race that surpressed their emotions to devote all time to knowledge, he didn't understand the baser emotions of Earthlings and this was seen as illogical by them as we acknowledge them.
The character of Spock was pretty well developed as a foil to the recklessness of Captain go for it Kirk.
