Re: The end of the world is near

A friend asked me the following question a while back so I put it to you lot.

If 4 billion people die today would you weep? Why?

Maybe not. If 4 Billion people die at once, there's a very good chance you or I would be among them.

Re: The end of the world is near

Doomsday clock? Sounds cool. Can I get a doomsday wrist-watch? Maybe it could have an alarm to let me know when the world has ended. I'd sure hate to miss that.

Re: The end of the world is near

I am really quite shocked that only 46% said yes to this survey. I guess there are a lot of positive people in the world. (or blind)

Re: The end of the world is near

Seems like every generation thinks they'll be the last...

You could look back at nearly every point in history and I bet everybody during those times thought they would see the end of the world.

Re: The end of the world is near

its a calculated clock by a guy in a wheel chair and a bunch of other guys who have helped create nuclear weapons i am sorry but the fact that they think they can predict the end of the world or the immediate danger that the world is in is asuming the power of god, which I'm sure they are all athists so it doesent matter anyways.

yup, that is definitely true. I guess it makes people feel special.

That said I think people are getting too smart for their own good and things like global warming, nuclear power, biological weapons, and even AI (like the movies) could be a problem in the future.
