The Year 2525

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


“In the Year 2525 if man is still alive, if women can survive, they may find.” That opening to one of the most memorable hit songs of the late 60′s set a very ominous tone for the future of mankind. Subsequent verses pick up a very foreboding story of mankind spanning 10,000 years. As with Nostradamus disturbing predictions, Zager & Evans constructed an altogether more disturbing and sobering scenario for the future of humanity. A little more than 500 years from now we may find mankind at the mercy of all the technology we have created.

Could it be that in the year 3535 all of a person’s actions, words and thoughts will be preprogrammed into a daily pill. Shades of George Orwell and others who prophesied man will ultimately destroy this planet and eventually himself. One hundred years later man may find himself without the need for eyes or teeth just because the food sources will be so processed and programmed. Just like the other pills we have already been taking. So far the future does indeed seem bleak.

When we enter the year 5555 man will no longer need arms or legs because machines will automatically do that for us now. So now we come to 6565. The time has come when society produces the next generation of man from the glass tubes. Just think that women will no longer experience pregnancy. Babies are now artificially created in test tubes. What a future we have in store for us. Make us think where will all our technology bring humanity. Granted, technology is vital for the preservation of humanity, but we always have to remember that fine line between technology for the betterment of mankind and the demoralizing effects that too much technology for the wrong reasons will ultimately be destructive.

It is the year 7510 when in the song “If God’s a-coming he ought to make it by then. Maybe he’ll look around himself and say guess it’s time for Judgement day.” Well. if that is what the future holds for mankind we in the here and now had better take heed and figure out a way to avoid Armageddon that will defiantly happen if we don’t take actions to avoid the mistakes of the past and reinvent them in the future.

Do we have a future of a world doomed by our own acquiescence to and over dependence on overdone technologies? Does mankind face a nightmarish vision of the future as man’s technological inventions gradually dehumanize him? These are sobering questions that are very much concerning today. As the years have gone by since Zager & Evans first recorded this song we can see how in the lyrics how right they were.  ” In the year 9595, I’m kinda wonderin if man is going to be alive, He’s taken everything this old Earth can give and he ain’t put back nothing.”  In after thought now Zager & Evens have been right on the money all along. Can man find the medium between technological advances without dehumanizing the rest of humanity? We had better before it really is too late.
