        The only scenerio that could destroy every last microbe of life on earth would be global warming run amok. The surface temperature of Venus is 460 degrees Celsius and if earth should reach the tipping point for carbon saturation of the atmosphere, that could be us. There is no way that this would be survivable.

        We don't seem to be willing to take precautions against this possibility. Each country rationalizes that someone else should bear the lion's share of responsibility for reducing carbon emissions, so, since we will continue to pump out excess carbon, it is now only a matter of whether the atmospheric dynamic is or is not going to fry us all.

        Ques - why do you think the world will end soon?

        What evidence you have that the world will end any time soon? And what exactly do you mean by the world ending? The extinguishing of all life? Just human life? The actual physical destruction of the Earth?

        I pose a disagreement to that statement.
        the present world -meaning the planet- will not be ending any time soon.
        However, the stasis of the present planetary conditions will end very soon, meaning humanities industrialization of the planet. I do not believe humanity will end, either. But certainly a change is coming, is inevitable and long overdue. Call it human revolution, spiritual evolution, quantum succession or even jinn, but it's right on top of us, less than 100 years, perhaps.

      No, unless for some odd reason the Sun dies.
      The reason is because I don't think humankind could destroy the Earth beyond all repair. Humankind could possibly make itself extinct, but that wouldn't destroy the Earth.

      I have a hard time worrying about things that are beyond my control and/or influence.  The world will end when it ends.  My time on earth is already limited to 70 years more or less.  There is too much fun to be had.

      Promises of a cataclysm, a rapture, or the end of days have been around since before I was born and will be around after I die.  If the world ends before or after my demise, then I will be dead either way.  That seems like the same thing to me.   Until then, I have a city to explore and a life to live and women to chase.  I hope I remember what to do if I catch one.

      Not so soon, based on Revelation 5:9 that says folks from "every nation, tribe and tongue" will be represented before His Throne.  We still have a lot of unreached peoples to reach before Jesus comes back; which is why I've been praying for Bible Translators to "bear much fruit" these last 32 years!  Grace and peace, Brother!

        Why do most people, in this day and age, hold so much belief in an ancient text written by people with wild imaginations? It's rediculous to regard these fairy stories as fact while modern science and physical proof says otherwise. But for the ones that were brought up with these crazy stories and backed up with a poor education, they're in thier own world of make believe.

      How long has man feared an end? How many times have christians been disappointed by their leaders? It's deception, created during the time of the pharonic dynasties and well before. There is nothing new about preaching the end and there is nothing new about fear. In other words: There will be no rescuer nor a guide for immortality. One must just accept that life ends and that life was the heaven we sought all along.

    I don't think the world is going to end. The human population may cease to exist because of the ridiculous amount of resources we use or unimaginable natural disasters, but the world has been through a lot more than human parasites. So, no, I don't think the world is going to end. Not even by the Christian god, who, according to the Bible [if I remember correctly] gave us the rainbow as a promise that he wouldn't kill us off again.
    Of course there's the whole sun thing that eventually it'll blow up and destroy our little solar system, but that's not for years. . . probably. XP

    Either way, I don't see the point in dwelling on questions like this. I try to do my part in keeping a clean environment but other than that there's nothing I can really do and personally I'd rather live life and enjoy it rather than wait and fear for where the world may or may not end. Call me crazy, but I have enough fear in my life without thinking about the sun exploding or imploding whichever it's suppose to do. Like blackholes, I have a phobia of blackholes. Don't need to think about the sun being destroyed with blackholes on my brain.

    So in short, I don't think the world is going to end but I also don't think anyone can know for sure. smile

    I don't believe the earth will be around in a 100 years' time.   The radiation from Fukushima is going to drastically reduce the population or maybe making it extinct.

    1. Disappearinghead profile image89
      Disappearingheadposted 4 years ago in reply to this

      Nope. There are three types of nuclear radiation: alpha and beta (particles) and gamma waves.

      Alpha particles are helium nuclei and are stopped by a sheet of paper.
      Beta particles are electrons and can be stopped by a sheet of aluminium or plastic.
      Gamma rays are high energy electromagnetic radiation and can be stopped by a slab of lead. However, even if no lead shielding is in place, they travel in straight lines, thus at a tangent to the Earth's surface, hence ultimately they head into space.

      So all things being considered, you are perfectly safe in nice middle America despite what your conspiracy websites might say.

        LMAO! I'm sorry if it makes you feel better to believe this drivel.  You do know that the air currents from Japan reach the United States?

        Here are a few things to consider:

        Blue fin fish caught in California were 10 times the normal radiation limit:

        http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/05/2 … 52838.html

        "In April 2012 environmental journalist and LA Weekly contributor Michael Collins, an independent who has tested over 1500 samples since the Fukushima earthquake of 2011, was shocked to find that radiation levels in the falling rain over L.A. measured five times above normal.

        A March 6th test of a HEPA filter recorded radiation levels 668% or 6.68 times the normal background radiation levels. This test took place 43 days after initial tests and shows a 130% increase since January 22nd 2012. “The California Highway Patrol considers anything over three times background, 300% of background above, a trigger level to a hazardous materials situation,” reported the EnviroReporter.

        Our last HEPA filter measurements January 22 produced some astonishing results. Doing a spot test on the Honeywell barrel-style filter and a Kenmore Plasmawave, we found radiation ~351% of normal background. The machines had been running for 42 days. The combined aggregate dust came in even hotter at 538% of normal background radiation at Radiation Station Santa Monica.

        Now 43 days later the dust was a lot hotter. A spot test was ~377% of the previous background. Then we vacuumed out the filters with a HEPA filter Eureka vacuum cleaner and tested the aggregate. The March 6 test of the combined dust came in at a sizzling 668% of background or 6.68 times normal. Since the last testing period, the radiation detected has risen another 130% indicating a continued upward trend.

        That radiation is rising in Los Angeles as it is in many places in the northern hemisphere. For some reality checking, we have the New York Times saying that, “The amount of radioactive materials released in the first days of the Fukushima nuclear disaster was almost two and a half times the initial estimate by Japanese safety regulators, the operator of the crippled plant said in a report released on the 24th of May, 2012."

        A nuclear expert says America is in huge trouble.


        Imminent collapse of Reactor 4 could create a mass extinction event of both humans and animals

        According to Christina Consolo, an award-winning biomedical photographer and host of Nuked Radio, Reactor 4 has remained in such bad shape that even a very small earthquake could quickly level the building, sending the fuel from more than 1,500 unused fuel rods into the environment. And with Reactor 4 still filled with the highest levels of radioactive MOX and other fuels, the consequences of this potential collapse could be far worse than anything that has happened thus far as a result of the earthquake and tsunami.

        "[S]itting at the top of [Reactor 4], in a pool that is cracked, leaking, and precarious even without an earthquake, are 1,565 fuel rods (give or take a few), some of them 'fresh fuel' that was ready to go into the reactor on the morning of March 11 when the earthquake and tsunami hit," writes Consolo. "If they are MOX fuel, containing six percent plutonium, one fuel rod has the potential to kill 2.89 billion people."

        Learn more: http://www.naturalnews.com/035731_Fukus … z1xh4tYEs0


        Everything depends on Reactor 4 which hangs precariously on a thread.

        If they are MOX fuel, containing 6% plutonium, one fuel rod has the potential to kill 2.89 billion people. If this pool collapses, as Senator Wyden is now saying too, we would face a mass extinction event from the release of radiation in those rods.

        That is, if we aren’t in one already. Nuke experts like Arnie Gundersen and Helen Caldicott are prepared to evacuate their families to the southern hemisphere if that happens. It is that serious.

        If those rods are exposed to air and catch on fire, it's over.

        In fact, radioactive plumes had reached the West Coast of the United States on March 17th, 2011 then places like Maine and then Europe.


        Now there is evidence of horrible mutations in Japan and in places as far as Michigan, USA.

        Michigan and Indiana, ironically, seem to have been hit the most.


        Amid a number of reports of massive and bizarre radiation readouts coming from experts, eyewitnesses, radiation facilities, and a key choice news outlet, it has now come out that one of the largest nuclear bases is currently running a ‘nuclear containment exercise’. The Minot Airforce Base exercise, running in North Dakota, reportedly involves the use of B-52 aircrafts. The news comes after a developing story arose over the potential cover-up of a nuclear situation stemming from near the border of Indiana and Michigan.

        Sources from near where the elevated levels of radiation were observed say that a Department of Homeland Security ‘hazmat’ fleet has been dispatched after ‘years’ of inactivity. The story first erupted after online geiger readings showed an unprecedented radiation spike in the area, with levels reaching as high as 7.139 counts per minute (CPM) over the average of between 5 and 6. While there has been no official reported cause of the spike, there has been quite a bit of foul play regarding the information being put forth by many media outlets, the EPA, and even radiation measurement centers.  After the readings shocked viewers, the EPA quickly censored the ability to view the levels online.

        This is no joke.  It's deadly serious.  Eventually the northern hemisphere will be uninhabitable if this is not contained and the southern hemisphere will follow eventually.  Radiation already has been found in Australia.  The Chernobyl nuclear power station spewed radiation for only 10 days and babies were horribly deformed.  Children today have heart problems 26 years on.  It's called "The Chernobyl Heart".

        Perhaps the reason why I am not in denial mode is because I'm in the southern hemisphere.  Once I see mutations in plants and food, I'll go into denial mode.  I can't really blame you for not knowing the true situation.

                Why only restrict it to only Michigan hubbers? Did you peruse my sources?  A Michigan lady has been documenting mutations of plants and fruits found.  As for Europe, I have not heard any claims because I only come across American sites and have not heard any European people claim anything.  You brought up Europe in regards to Chernobyl. 

                Unless one has access to radiation readings and purposely look for abnormal plants then is not going to notice anything amiss.  When people get cancer later on, it will be hard to link that conclusively to Fukushima.

                I do respect the opinion of nuclear experts.  If they say mass extinction will probable if Reactor 4 collapses, then I take that very seriously.

                I also did not claim that the end is near.  A hundred years time is not exactly called the near to the end.

          The natural background radiation is neglible, so five times that is still neglible. One fuel rod could kill 2.89 billion people if it was ground up and sprinkled over their cornflakes.

          What's there a mass extinction event after Hiroshima and Nagasaki? No.

            Do you know better than nuclear experts? Billions of people dying doesn't happen overnight.

            Are you comparing Hiroshima and Nagasaki as being on the same level as Fukushima? The nuclear cesium released from Fukushima equals to 4023 Hiroshima bombs.  And let's not forget that Fukushima nuclear fall-out has no end in sight.

    The long answer is no.

    But it is difficult to have a conclusive, measurable, rational, quantifiable,  logical answer until one can provide a clear understanding of defining 'the world will end soon'.

    We can define qualitative and measurable potential with some world ending events, such as possible hit by a meteor, radiation devastation and that would need to be much more than what has occurred at Hiroshima, Nagasaki, Fukishima and Chernobyl. Climate change, global nuclear war, food growth scarcity, ecological bioterrorism and ecological disasters would significantly reduce a population but not wipe out humanity.

    With the sun blowing up, that won't happen for several billion years yet, so we have a little time.

    The 21st December 2012 is an end of a Mayan calender, not the end of the world. Its the equivalent to the 31st December 2000 (albeit a Mayan full calender is 2640 years long)

    A western world styled Christian bible also does not provide an answer. Not in a measurable, quantifiable manner.

    The WORLD, 'as we know it' is ending all the time, and beginning anew, all the time. The planet will, undoubtedly, outlive us, and as long as we are here, at the present level of technology, there is no reason to assume that something could obliterate the planet. The gravitational field anomalies could enable the solar radiation to possibly sterilize the surface, and there may be a precedent for this having happened before. It is actually surprising that we, humans, have been around as long as wehave. Have a nice day!smile

      Well said Druid Dude.  I was thinking about the world ending today, as I was walking by the river, watching the birds going about their business and I thought 'what a shame if all this ended.'  Not me, I'm going to be gone some time soon any way but them, the wild creatures, the eco system.  Why should they be held to account?  If the world really is coming to end, I hope it's our world, not the world in general.  Something so beautiful deserves to reach it's full potential.  smile

      Agree with you druid, the earth has gone through many extremes since its beginning, mountain building phases followed by relatively peaceful years and so on, many species have come and gone. We humans are just another one. the world will not end soon, though humans might and anyway each of us is going to die sooner or later.

    The way the world is today....yes it will end.  The Lord has given us signs of when the end shall come and his return.  One sign to look for is....there will be a ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT aka NEW WORLD ORDER(NWO) aka GLOBALIZATION which is already in motion and highly promoted by President Obama.  The ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT is not influenced by Christ.  It is not a good thing.  This is the beginning of the end.

    We could go all day about this topic but to answer your question...Yes it will end.  And it will end sooner then we all think.

    I don't think the world will end any time soon.

    It will end in a few billion years when the sun starts burning helium instead of hydrogen. Then the sun will balloon out to engulf the Earth. That's about 5 billion years from now.

    Life will disappear far sooner, though. The sun, in its main sequence (adult phase) will continue to brighten gradually until the oceans boil and the atmosphere is too hot to remain. I'd give life perhaps another billion years or so.

    Civilization will end far sooner. When God gets his final word from his children what they've decided, some will leave the physical realm behind, while others will stay and suffer the decline of civilization into wailing and gnashing (victim and perpetrator). Without spirituality and religious wisdom, selfishness will take over.

    But even before that, civilization as we know it will drastically change. The Bildeberg Group and their elite group of murderers have fun plans for us. They're looking to get us all implanted with microchips for the perfect enslavement. Anyone who disagrees merely has their bank account turned off. But their grab for power will go awry and billions will die. And yet, God will keep us all from dying, though I don't know how many will remain.

    The microchips were mentioned in Revelation (ch.13), so we're close to that change. But it's not the "end." It's the end of one era, and the beginning of another.

      Humans will not die out in my life time, yet millions will die soon enough and by this human abuse, then people will wake up. Human history keeps repenting itself, abuse is made and then human change it again ans again. It will take 1000s of more years before we do something really End Human life and make ourselves extinct.

      When we end, the sky, water and air will be true blue again and insect will grow 3 stories high and I will be called the new Jesus of the world for my prediction,.. at least by the insects

    "do you think or believe this world will end soon?"

    Define soon?

    We are overdue for the super volcano under Yellowstone to blow, but with this sort of stuff a 1000 years is considered soon, could be then or could be tomorrow. I don't think most people would think of 1000 years as soon. Either way, when that baby goes we got one long ass winter (ice age anyone?) and most surface life wiped out.

    It is certain the world will end one day when our star, the sun, dies. However, it can end today, tomorrow, next week or 10 years from because of the unpredictable nature of our universe. All we can do is hope that we are technologically ready to face that event one day to save the human population.

        Why "surely"?  After existing billions of years, why should the world end soon?  Our sun is not due to burn out for many millions of years into the future and I can see no evidence of anyone ever being correct about the Jesus thing.  The flood was merely a local myth supporting the idea of a god making one mistake after the other until he had to have a do-over with the results being no better than it was already.

        "Men of god" have been predicting the "end of the world is near" for thousands of years now, with all being liars so far.  Of course, you are probably special and have your god's own personal guarantee of THIS time being correct.  lol

          When Christian membership is way down, this kind of fear of God brings it somewhat back up.

          How can God be all loving and be the greatest horrible bully of all time and at the same times as being loving.

          Who needs Satan as an  enemy, when you got a bully this bad, very negative people or Gods I would  just get rid of.

    To quote Matthew 24:36, the world will end at some point in time, but "no one knows, neither the angels of heaven, nor the Son (Jesus), but the Father (God) alone."

    Remember that fiasco on and before May 21 of the past year? It happened just like any other day of the year? It was an ordinary day - no strong earthquakes or people ascending into Heaven. Ditto for October 21 - no whole world going into damnation.

    I don't know, Revelation seems to be written in a way that makes every generation think they are in the end times.  Seems like the purpose of prophesy is to keep us all on the alert and ready for Christ's return.
