Will Ebola be the end of the world?
i hear that the world will end on December 25, 2014. Will ebola end it?
Oh look - yet another date for the end of the world!
There have been that many dates, and reasons, in the last 100yrs or so it's becoming comical...not to mention a bit 'the boy who cried wolf'-y
But question at hand - no, I don't think so. It will be the end of life, and therefore the end of THEIR world for those who are taken by it, but I don't think it will be world ending. Much as the bubonic plague wasn't, nor massive influenza epidemics decades and centuries ago weren't.
If it's gonna end - Ebola and other illnesses are a little slow at ending things - a catastrophic collision with another planet/moon/asteroid seems more likely.
Ebola has only a 50% mortality rate. It can't end the world.
I think it is highly unlikely to impossible for this to "end" the World for us; however, no doubt it will be the end for some...
People thought many pandemics throughout the ages were going to be the end of the world and yet we humans are still multiplying. I remember when the news of the first AIDS cases hit the news. We heard the same thing - "This is it! This is the plague that's going to kill everyone!" I think a lot of people are going to get Ebola and many of them will die, but just as with the other "end of the world diseases", it won't cause the end of the world.

Do you think the world will end on December 21 2012?If so please explain why. Have you joined the doomsday preppers and started preparing for the end of the world as we know it. Don't you think all this end of the world talk is just a lot of hype and that the sun will come up on December 23 just...
