    It may not be so much that I've conceded your point as that you just can't hear me rolling my eyes.

    Hawking, perhaps, but I suspect Darwin will actually fade away into scientific footnotes, in a thousand years. All of the uproar his work caused in the last 150 years will likely be of little importance by then.

    Re: Will anyone know your name in a thousand years?

    Will Salk still be remembered or fade into obscurity? I'm having trouble remembering the name of the once famous heart surgeon who did the first transplant. Will Elon Musk be remembered as a pioneer or obscured once the big companies have made the technology the new "normal"? Will a modern group of robber barons take advantage of the loosening regulations to take their positions with Rockefeller, Morgan, et. al.?

    Christiaan Barnard is the heart surgeon, I think

    A lot of people who have accomplished notable feats will likely be recorded and their accomplishments on record in archives, but I think that to actually be a part of the general knowledge of civilization, such as Homer, Alexander, Julius Caesar, Pythagoras, Plato, Siddhartha, Mohamed, and so on a thousand years into the future, they will need to have provided such a significant work as to define civilization, itself.

    I would be very happy if the government released all of his papers and writings that they so swiftly snatched up upon his death. That would make for some fascinating reading.

    LarsMac I'm just an average person, and when I'm gone folks who knew me will remember for awhile but because I have not made a big name for myself I think it =highly unlikely folks will remember me beyond the genealogy pages my name will slip away.

    Ted, I suspect most of us are in that same boat. Though there is the possibility that some where in the future, someone will come across archives of this forum and read something that peaks their interests. you never know
