Hehehehe!!!! This is just crazy. Who said the world would come to an end like that?

Who's to say that the world will end? What if it means that world will change and not end? Maybe it could mean that the world will end as we know it. Who knows. To me it's just a load of bollocks cause this is the kind of thing that makes people fear religion and follow like lost sheep.

At the end of the day, the church and all their sects are just there to make money. There's this saying, : "If money is the root of all evil, why is the church begging for it".

They preach about the world coming to an end to get more people to fill the church cause a lot of people question the truth of their bibles. To me, religion is just a way of life. You shouldn't follow it word for word.

Another friend always kids and says it's a good book/Story as in a piece of litrature :)

One of these deals eh? Well, if mankind does manage to blow itself apart, it may be the end of the world for us, although it probably won't end for the planet itself. Personally I believe that what's going to happen if things continue in a downward spiral as they are now, we'll more than likely see much of the following:

1. Extreme resource shortages- Oil and gas will of course be depleted from failure to seek out renewable fuels.

2. Extreme food shortages and massed famine- It is predicted that by the year 2020, only half of the world's people will be able to be effectively fed and housed, the others will simply be left to starve.

3. Drinkable water shortages- Many places worldwide are seeing this problem now, drinkable water is in shorter supply than what can be provided. This will in cases deteriorate into all-out open warfare over water supplies in general.

The list of horrors extends in multiple directions, and as we stand now, the planet is losing it's ability to support so many of us at one given time. Now, I have taken into account the horridly inefficient practices of corporate-run farming myself, and the fact that about eighty percentile of the world's total farming capacity is given over to cash crops rather than actual foodstuffs. Correcting this balance will make quite a difference in the long run, although these should only be regarded as patchwork repairs in light of larger issues.

i had a proposal once about a utopia of sorts that went something like this:

1. Abolishment of currency and capitalism-based economies, institution of a rewards point system or barter system: If one evil has been traced in any way, shape, or form to the world's problems, it's money and the corrupt's love of it. People simply cannot be trusted with money, nor can the bureaucratic system of the current corporate scene be trusted with it either as that many of them would rather relegate their employment under them to factory or cubicle-slave status. In the proposed change, everything a person owns outside of entertainment will be paid for by the government: Housing, transportation, insurance, education, food, water, healthcare, all those are pre-covered. The points system would function akin to a credit card in which the recipient would use the points garnered from labor to purchase things that he/she wants, if not barter for them with objects of equal or greater value.

2. Abolishment of fossil fuels: Of course, what else would lead to the destruction of our environment faster than fossil fuels? The era of oil is drawing to a close, American Imperialists (which in being an American I am thouroughly ashamed of) are on a quest for cheap oil in the middle east and elsewhere across the globe, tensions are running high over this "black gold" as it was once called, and of course, the Oil and coal companies have started a massive disinformation campaign to dissuade people from losing hope in current reserves, which are predicted to run dry as early as 2020 by many scientists.
Refine fuel cell technology and fusion technology (forseen as being perfected by 2030) for use in cars and things of the like. Phase out the Diesel and Internal combustion engines by 2030, etc.

3. Give full reparations and aid to nations formerly affected by European colonialism, provide food, clean water, healthcare and proper housing toward all disenfranchised individuals.

4. Repair environmental problems and actively enforce the endangered species act. Outlaw slash & burn agriculture, outlaw the sale of endangered species or parts of endangered species for any purpose whatsoever.

5. Bolster the space program and develop spacial hydroponics facilities and off-world colonies, research hydrogen skimming derricks for use in Jupiter's orbit (think about it, an infinite source of hydrogen) and hydrogen tankers for hauling materials. Also implement (little research is needed, because we already have them) hall field thrusters or high-efficiency Ion engines into starship designs to allow for quicker acceleration than normally provided by chemical rockets.

That's all I could think of for now, feel free to add comments and ideas and things of the like. Don't give me any of that "It doesn't work like that in the real-world" crap as a warning, if that's the way that everyone's thinking, then it's no wonder that we're supposedly "doomed".

"And Saint Attila raised the hand grenade up on high, saying, "O Lord, bless this thy hand grenade, that with it thou mayst blow thine enemies to tiny bits, in thy mercy." And the Lord did grin. And the people did feast upon the lambs and sloths, and carp and anchovies, and orangutans and breakfast cereals, and fruit-bats and large chu..."

Just discern between the end of the world and the end of mankind - or mammalkind.

Even if all life on earth is destroyed or wiped out, even if there are holes in the crust where continents were, the earth will not perish before its at least split in half. Even then, with the solar system a bit out of sync, the 2 halves may become fully fledged planets themself - that is, if they don't crash into the moon or into the sun since their screwed up orbit may fling them into the sun. But when all life leaves, then it would just be a matter of time (say a few million billion years?) before it could start again.

The earth is a lot more steadfast than mere life...

apocalypse now!

... or stick with nostradamus (don't know how to spell him in english). since according do some of his followers we're in the middle of a 17th year long period of tension followed by about 26 years of war after which humandkind will enter a golden age... so we all have about 13-34 years until we either die or will live in peace.

could be worse :)

What I can remember of him was that the earth will be destroyed by the sun in the year 7000. So much for life on earth. Will probably be wiped out before that.
