    ...in time to save the species?
    When I mention the "gods, I do so with "tongue-in-cheek."
    Pls, make a fool of me on this one.....:-)

        You think all of a sudden the species is just going to eliminate itself? Sounds rather quixotic.

            I'm confused.  What does man kind eliminating itself have to do with "fool-the-gods"?

              Eddigity: yes you are confused...:-)
              Might we fool-the-gods and not end up experiencing "armageddon?"
              Does that kinda kindle the dead bulb above your head?
              No disrespect intended....just thought my intent was kinda obvious....no?

                No your intent really wasn't obvious.  I think that may be part of the reason you had a hard time getting initial responses.  The way you phrased your question was confusing. 

                To answer your question, in the religious sense there is no stopping the last battle between good and evil.  In a human sense human sense of people just destroying each other until there is nothing left, it's not going to happen.  It doesn't make sense economically.

                  Ediggity:
                  I'm sorry I confused you with my terrible usage of my native language.
                  I shall attempt to make my intent clearer when I ask a question by not using subtleties. I'm sorry I confused you.   :-)
                  Your response:  "To answer your question, in the religious sense there is no stopping the last battle between good and evil.  In a human sense human sense of people just destroying each other until there is nothing left it's not going to happen.  It doesn't make sense economically." ....clarifies your confusion for me....:-)
                  TY.......:-)  whew!

                    It's ok qwark.  We all have things we need to work on.  It's a writing forum, so I'm sure you'll get plenty of practice.

    Qwark, I'd love to share my two (non)senses with you on this post, but I'm afraid the girl with the dragon tatoo might get upset at my flirtatious happy-go-lucky personality. She's mighty scary - Daughter of Anarchy! Apparently, I'm too "annoying" roll
