Knowing something and realizing the implication of it are two different things. Everyone knows their parents are going to die but not everyone realize it until they're actually dead. From secular-humanist-none-magical-place-believer what is frightening is not that the earth is going to die someday but that mankind is done for once it does and there will be no recovering from it. I guess what I'm really trying to get at is that the mortality of the entire human race frightens me more than my own mortality.

And if you do believe in a new heaven and a new earth, then most of this is just modern day blah blah blah anyways.
See answer above.

well, that's kinda why I think it's more blah blah blah than anything. I don't really see a "mortality of the entire human race". I think we are a vibrant, intelligent, and adaptable species, that will under anything other than a supernatural event, will find ways to survive. So, I won't be scared because some tv show pretends to have an idea of what could happen 10,000 years in the future, or for that matter a politico's inconvenient truth.

I'm not sure you realize how handicapped we actually are. We're vulnerable and fragile species that's very much in danger of being whipped out completely on a whim.

Here's to becoming a Type III Civilization as soon as possible.

I'm quite sure I understand the frailty of the human race. That being said, I am fairly certain you don't understand the power of the human spirit.

We can pray for that asteroid to miss us...the power of prayer might just work. Allahu Akbar!

Or we can accept that somethings we have no power over. Still no sense to be scared.

To dwell on something and to be frightened of something are two different things.

I say we all have a toast to the end of mankind and the closing of the age. Once we're gone, it'll be like we weren't even here at all.

I was not talking of dwelling on it, you never said you did that. I think to be scared of something you have zero control, and has no chance of occurring without foreshadowing and notice, makes no sense. If we get wiped out in the blink of an eye, your fear gained you nothing. If we have notice, than your fear will at least work towards trying to find a way to survive.

Because it is out of my hand the thought of our end shouldn't frighten me? Really? That's how you're going to play it? What a pointless conversation this has turned out to be.

Re: Life After People (History Channel)

I REALLY wanted to see it, and I had it saved on my DVR, but the darn thing crapped the bed and had to get it replaced, so I missed it.
I love to entertain theories about what will happen after we are gone. Interesting discussion.

So why exactly would it frighten you?

I hear what you're saying.

The thought of the world ending, no matter if we're here or not is freaky.

Sort of like the thought of being dead some day. Yeah it's out of our hands and it will happen to everyone, but it still freaks me out when I think about it sometimes.
