Let me summarize this discussion:

Richard: I'd like to see problem X solved eventually
Eric: problem X is solved already
David: no, it isn't
Eric: well, but it can be solved eventually rather than now

To me it looks like you are prone to spend a lot of time and energy
chasing off straw men.  Part of that might come from considering
yourself to be the only person with any amount of intelligence around.
But that's not an actually workable hypothesis: if you were the only
person with any intelligence around, you'd not have sufficient time for
solving all of the world's problems anyway.
