Americans More Confident Jesus Will Return By 2050 Than Earth Will Be Struck By Asteroid

The results of the latest Pew Research study measuring Americans’ confidence in what the next 40 years will look like is both frightening and wildly entertaining. Will cancer be cured by 2050: 71 percent of you think so, a number dwarfed by the percentage who think computers will be able to talk like humans (81 percent). Then there’s those who think there’s an energy crisis coming (72%) and a woman will be elected president (89%). And then there’s Jesus: 41% of you think he’ll at least hit up a Starbucks drive-thru by 2050; 46% of you think “this will definitely or probably not happen.”
