So the world didn't end today but it got me thinking, do you think the world will end? If so, how?

I always just thought the world would end when the sun dies.

I think when the sun dies & blows up, I think it's about 3.5 billion years away though.
When I was a kid, I always used to worry that they got it wrong and it was going to happen any minute.

Or maybe it won't 'end' - we'll just grow too big for it, grow (terra-form) other places to live & head out to them ship by ship, like in Firefly Tounge1.gif

I think we'll get closer and closer to the sun and replace Mars one day! All life will become extinct do to extreme heat, or, off on another, friendlier planet.

"Super bug"
Mutation of existing virus or a cross-over from another species - like influenza or another zoonotic.

PP when you say 'The Road', do you mean the movie the road?

3/4 of the worlds population will be wiped out by some nasty virus. Very sad but the most likely outcome at some point in the next 200 years. 1/4 will survive to re- populate the world - natural selection at it's best.

I work in healthcare so will be the first to go...

It's ok we have around 45 mintues till we find out lol.

TBH Not so sure the world will end but it will continue to evolve along with future generations and civilizations.

Us? I agree with a PP about a supervirus wiping most of us out. I think nuclear war is still a very real possibility too, just with different countries than we were worried about in the 80s (North Korea, Iran and Pakistan all come to mind)

I think the Earth as we know it will wave bye-bye when a giant meteor hits us.

littlepickle- maybe we can hope that we health care workers will have some sort of superior immune system due to our repeated exposure to every f-ing bug the patients care to bring to us? That way we will be the ones to repopulate the world, and no hospitals will be built as they are only havens of germs and virus's anyway. That's my spin on it anyway!

I'm hoping if the end is soon approaching (didn't they say it was late our time- end of the world type things work to the American time zone after all) then it will be a rapid blink and we're all gone. Please don't say it'll be like "The Road". That movie was disturbing.

Yes. Though I guess that's not really the world ending so much as the probable end of most life on earth.

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I’ve tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.

Hehe sorry I love this poem.
