    Since the dawn of recorded history there have been claims of a coming apocalypse, doomsday, whatever you want to call it - the End of the World. From religious prophecy to scientific pessimism to street-corner, sign-holding crazies and religious zealots, many people seem to think the end is near.

    Personally, I couldn' say for sure. There does seem to be some cause for consideration: like near-miss asteroids or comets, rising ocean acidity, North Korea's recent nuclear weapons testing, rising tensions between East and Western civilizations (not that there's anything new about that), rising tensions between Christian, Muslim, and Jewish faiths (same), over-population, Yellowstone's past-due super volcano eruption, etc... 2012 is just around the corner... Will that really be the end of the world, or would that just be the end of modern civilization as we know it? Seems to me we could use another world war to kick start the world economy, open up job opportunities, and maybe kill of a bunch of people for some "breathing room"! Or would it just be the end of humankind, but the new adapation and proliferation of plant and animal species now that the most successful organism (other than viruses and bacteria) will have disappeared?

    Do you think the end of the world is nigh? Will we cause it ourselves? Will it be a cosmic collision or nuclear war? Or will it be as John prophesied in the Bible? Is the Rapture coming?

    What do you think?

    When severe droughts hit the world changes. When the floods overcome areas the world changes. When earth quakes shake the very ground you walk on the world changes. When you see the sky's lit with fire people will cry out the world is ending yet it will be changing. When people change the world changes.
