    Question The beggining of the end of the world?

    A few months ago, where i live an extremest Christian group claimed that the beggining of the end of the world.

    Well, I'm not dead, your certainly not dead, the governments still stand (Most of them) and nothing really has changed lol.

    HOWEVER... I am NOT saying that it is definantly not true.

    have your say

    Re: The beggining of the end of the world?

    People have been banging on about the end of the world for centuries.... c. 1000 CE some people gave away all their possessions and sat around waiting for the Second COming. Same c. 1500 CE etc. I couldn't really tell you why they do it, but some people seem to like scaremongering while others just enjoy being scared.

    Me? I just believe in getting on with life.

    Pretty much this. Every religion has an "end of the world" scenario. However, there's no need to dwell on it like many have been. It's gonna happen, even if it's just our world ends because we died. But that's no reason to stop living your life, or worse, living in fear. I had an adolescence full of that, and quite frankly it didn't help my piece of mind. After a while I realized the world isn't going to end anytime soon and if it is not a thing I can do despite what those cartoons on TV tell me.

    In fact, lots of groups (not just Christian ones) basically use those scenarios to scare people into following their way. Why play into that?

    At some point the world came into existence, and at some point it will cease. Circle of life.

    Can you hear me, Major Tom? I think I love you.

    The world will end....eventually. In a few billion years the sun will crap out, though it will probably grow in size and burn out the earth first. We might have an extinction event before that, but I doubt it will be anything we'll see coming because we've pretty much managed to evolve past everything we already have here that threatens us. Hell I even think we could plausibly survive an astroid hitting the earth.

    We might see some massive change in our lifetimes (I think that's very likely), but I"m going to guess that the end of the world isn't coming anytime soon.

    When I was a little girl, I read that, about the sun eventually going Nova, etc., in a book and became terrified. I thought it would happen soon and I obsessed and was upset for a week or two before my parents finally got me to tell them what was wrong.

    Me too. But my granny had a great saying for that sort of situation. It was 'Bollocks, get on with your knitting.'
