    Are there real signs the world is coming to an end?  What are they?

    Do you believe any doomsday predictions about the world ending?  What would happen if they start coming true?

    Which predictions about the world ending are most believable?

    Marcy....Here's a fact.If I didn't like you so much & enjoy discussions with you, I wouldn't tackle this Q. I can explain. I'm very much a "here & now" sort of woman. I embrace the present moments in life because as humans, it is all we can be certain of and usually base our decisions, choices & actions upon. 
    The most we can do about what has transpired in the past is recall it, learn from it and either be happy & grateful or sad & remorseful..Thus the past consists of memories & emotions.
    Without being authentically psychic or believing in Crystal balls & all the other paranormal doodads, the absolute certainty for tomorrow is not possible. Thus the future consists of assumptions, hopes, possibilities & projections.
    So..here we are, back in TODAY, only 40 seconds after starting my answer."Signs" & predictions of "doomsday" have existed and been pointed to, discussed & ANNOUNCED since the very beginning of time (or at least as long as humans have been able to communicate with one another)...Doomsday has not only been predicted but preached and believed and caused many to fall into outrageous traps of ignorance, take their own lives & just leave their sneakers behind for those who were STILL here the next day and for years afterward.There there followers of Jim Jones & David Koresh, wasn't that FUN??
    The end times as described in the Bible, as I have understood...are not meant TO BE UNDERSTOOD BY MORTAL MAN.So, no need to concern ourselves with this, now is there?
    As mortals, we can PREDICT just so much and it's not often incredibly profound events that promise to END THE ENTIRE WORLD. The closest I've come, as most of us may, is to predict that if I don't eat for a couple months, I will cease to exist &w/o water it's faster. I can also predict if I don't pay my BILLS...I'll be left w/o lights, heat, water and eventually a place to live.(Call me anytime you need predictions like this)  You can see I'm an expert at it.
    I can even state that by now you are pretty sure where I stand in terms of believing doomsday predictions.
    If they begin to occur?  I'm sure some have already occurred with more to come in the next 500 hundred years?  1000 years?  next week?  I do not know NOR does another living soul on the planet...unless they are as LOCO as those like the aforementioned ...whom btw, are believed by OTHER even MORE loco morons. Now this was fun, Marcy & I'm glad I responded!  Peace, Paula

    The world is not ending as in the Earth will disintegrate or something like that. The world as we know it is ending. Great changes are already happening and more will come. That's about it though. We can adapt, or join the dinosaurs. lol : )

    I don't believe in any of that doomsday stuff.  It is more likely that HUMANS will have caused irreparable damage to Nature, thereby ensuring their own extinction.  Even if that's the case, I doubt it's going to happen in my lifetime, or that of even my grandkids.
    In any case--so what if it is, or isn't?  There's nothing we can do about it anyway, if by 'the end of the world' you mean some external calamity.
    If it happens, it happens, so no point in wasting time worrying or pondering about it.
    Worrying today only steals tomorrow's joy.
    Carpe Diem!

    Look after today and tomorrow will look after itself. As for yesterday, it is dead and gone so no need to ponder on that. Live today it is all we have moment by moment. Be happy.

    In about 5 billion years from now, the sun will begin to die. As the Sun grows old, it will expand. As the core runs out of hydrogen and then helium, the core will contract and the outer layers will expand, cool, and become less bright. It will become a red giant star. It will consume Venus, Mercury, and Earth.

      Exactly, all this doomsday scenario is just pure hyperbole.  The world will end A VERY LONG TIME away!

      Yes, it seems like the majority of people are modern day versions of Chicken Little...and don't have the awareness to know it.

    As long as the sun keeps working, the Earth should remain intact. Many look at the many terrible things happening on the planet these days as an indication of the coming of the end. I see it as a tremendous opportunity to put a little love to work in order to make the world a better place, because the Sun should keep shining for a very, very long time. Have a nice day.

    There are several things. First look at the "Back to the Future" Movie. It predicted 911 so well that it is almost hard to believe. It predicts October 22, 2015 as a major day of change.

    Just wait and look soon you will start to see things that will show you that humanity is on its last leg. CERN is about to remove the veil when this happens you will know. When they spin up and collide particles that are light / matter they produce particles of antimatter. When they do this the particles will produce an explosion that actually moves into the dark dimension. If they produce an anti-matter collision then the opposite will happen. Instead of the energy going from light to dark, it will be dark to light. When this happens something will manifest in the light.

    It is unlikely to do this because if they do the machine itself would have the ability if it were to fail to destroy the planet. If the gravitational field were to cease for some reason then the antimatter would create an explosion. Right now, the machine is made of matter and dark matter is produced. When the machine is lined with antimatter and antimatter is collided then matter will be produced. Strange particles are being created by them now.

    Duality exist everywhere, if you can collide matter then men will want to collide antimatter when this is done entities will move from one realm and be visible in this realm. This is pretty simple explanation it is much deeper, but the principal is sound. I have written proof on such topics in articles I wrote here.

    Marcy, the Bible predicts earthquakes, wars, rumors of war, etc.  I do believe whatever is written in the Bible is true. But God is a God of patience and I believe the end of the world to still be far away.
    That being said I agree with Paula to embrace the present moments in life.
    If we don't do that, we could just drive ourselves crazy.
    One of my mantras is: "I dare to trust God in every aspect of my life."  This keeps me more peaceful because God had never let me down, ever.
    Do I keep up with the news?  Yes.
    Do I have concerns? Yes...one of them being the evil of ISIS and the news that many Americans are joining them and they are infiltrating into our country.  This is where my faith in God must stay strong.
    In fact I am going to post a question about ISIS, just to get feedback from my hub friends.
    The signs mentioned in the Bible...which I mention above ARE happening, but they have been for a long time...Do I think it will get worse?  Probably, but I am not a psychic.  But I have to stand in awe at the power of these tornadoes, hurricanes, and earthquakes...and give reverence to my Creator that we truly belong to God, whether we believe it or not.  Thank you for a great question.  Sparklea

    People will see whatever proves the existence of their beliefs, and there is plenty of "proof" available for those who believe in doomsday. There's also plenty of proof available for those who "believe in" climate change. Oddly enough, they're usually people at the opposite ends of the spectrum, even though the continuance of climate change practices is what will most likely create doomsday for humans (not just weather, but fighting over scarce resources, etc.).

    What I believe is that we each have both positive and negative effects on our own lives and those living things around us, including the earth. If we are observant, sensitive and caring, and act in accordance with our attitudes and words, then the majority of our actions will be positive and sustainable. When our collective attitudes, words, and actions match up then we become a powerful force for good, counteracting "doomsday" by doing the things that allow human life on earth to continue.

    Of course, it's not totally true becasue our Earth can not come to the end soon. Although there are still more predictions about the end, don't worry because we will play a part to enhance our Earth develop in the long future

    I personally believe it is very, very close. I see the wheels of prophecy turning and all that is happening in the world now I think is bringing it altogether. I personally think watching Israel is a good way to know how close we are. They have not yet rebuilt the temple where "the" anti-Christ will claim to be Christ so are we waiting on that? Will the Jews flee when the anti-Christ reveals himself at the same time Christ comes for the Christian or when He brings us back? I believe that is the time of the seven year tribulation myself and the Christian will not be here for any judgement sent to earth as God removed Lot and Noah and families and saved them from that; so he will true Christians alive at this time.
    So the signs are to me the wars breaking out everywhere and the gathering together of the Jew in their country with the devil turning so many against them. That tiny country and that special people satan has tried to kill for so long. {Now the Christian is added to that list.} Why does he hate them so? What does he know? Does he know how short time is? I think he does.
    I do not believe the bible teaches the world will be destroyed but it will be torn up and man will be years cleaning up all the destruction and weapons.
    I am just thankful as a Christian for the crumbs from the table that will give me everlasting life from the blood of Jesus Christ shed for my sin!

      So what are you gonna say when 50 years have gone by, and we are still here? Will the definition of VERY CLOSE be conveniently changed.

      Are there really more wars now or are we just noticing how many there have been all along? Could the "end of the world" really mean the end of war, now that we're more sensitive to its existence?
