Psalms 104:5 says, "When laid the foundations of the earth, that it should not be removed forever." Also, Ecclesiastes 1:4 says, "..the earth abideth forever." Isaiah 45:18 tells us that God formed the earth to be inhabited.
Man will not be allowed to destroy the earth. You can know this by reading Revelation 11: 17, 18: "..and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth." Then peace will be earth-wide as described at Revelation 21:3,4, "...God's tabernacle is with men.." "And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. This is in fact what Jesus taught us to pray for at Matthew 6: 9,10 .."thy will be done in earth..."
We do not need to be imprisoned with fear. This world will not be destroyed, only the 'world' of wickedness; like God did with the flood of Noah's day.
This present world came from darkness and will return to it.
The earth that will abide forever is the one that is above.
From a scientific point of view the sun will cease somewhere 5 billion years from here. But just like in evolution theory, times are overrated. No one has a proper idea or 'feel' about what 30,000 years of human culture really means for instance. Let alone anyone can imagine what 100,000 years means. A million years: no one has a clue, it's all conceptual, we cannot imagine it really. Let alone 5 billion years. Another possibility is an asteroid hitting earth. We don't know though - and year-2012-predictions are mostly conspiracy-based, not facts-based. Then you have things like biblical prophecy. But no one ever properly understood a prophecy before the content of it happened - so we are left with speculations (kind of Hal Lindsey stuff). As a Christian I don't worry about destruction models. But if real disasters (lesser scale) can be predicted, we must act. Ref. tsunami's etc. Hope this makes some sense...

Just a few thoughts on why there's no need to worry. First of all, Oprah's last show isn't scheduled until the 25th. Not even God can upstage Oprah. Secondly, WalMart is not closing early on the 21st. Yet I wonder....has Rev. Camping's church printed bulletins for Sunday's...
