    Sep 16 2012: I'm going to go out on a limb here and assume that by "How do you thing...." you meant ""How do you think...."

    Five billion years from now, when then sun turns into a red giant and engulfs the planet, the world ends. It will be a spectacular sight! It's like watching Atlantis sinking into the sea, or watching Vesuvius blowing up Pompeii into pieces.

    Of course by then you humans would have colonized the stars, and earth by then would be an empty, dry and dusty planet like Mars, but seeing the cradle of human civilization ending is just too beautiful.

    Sep 16 2012: Well, I don't expect to be here in 3-5 billion years, so I don't spend much time worrying about it.
  • Sep 16 2012: Would you consider turning attention to the here and now and doing what you can to improve life for as many people as you may reach? Why concern yourself about what you can't control? Shall we become unhappy that the world is coming to an end, as you say? We likely would benefit from service to humanity.

    Is there benefit in knowing when the world will end?

    Sep 15 2012: it won't. it usually makes a good movie idea though, and also a way to build a cult following.
  • Oct 14 2012: I believe that Jesus Christ will come to establish a reign of justice and righteousness.

    Oct 14 2012: I think:
    Most probably human-livable world of our planet will be ended by humankind its self as a result of INVALID HAPPINESS.
  • Sep 21 2012: if you can tell me how it started I will tell you how it will end.
  • Sep 20 2012: Meteor or unexpected geological event.
  • Sep 19 2012: Like the last time, just end.... and start aaall over again !
  • Sep 16 2012: Do you want me to save the earth from been destroyed. If i can save the people I love from dine in front my eyes, then I'll save the planet. it's not in my hand to Change the rules of the univers. everything happen today because people forget that the world going to end they keep fighting each other for what? if they know the world going to end they would live a peaceful life. Enjoy Your Life Today Because Yesterday Has Gone and Tomorrow May Never Come.

    Sep 16 2012: I dont think the Earth as a planet will ever be physically destroyed(Until the sun gobbles us up 5 billion years from now) but life on Earth could end at any moment. If a meteor were headed our way we would only have a few months notice. Hopefully when the next rock comes around, we'll be advanced enough as a species to knock it off course. theres also the chance that WE cause our own destruction. There are enough nuclear warheads in the world currently to kill all life on Earth like 3x over or something like that. I guess thats our choice whether we let that happen or not. BUT FINALLY, if it boils down to nothing kills us between now and 5 billion years from now when the Sun lets out its final fart, I think us humans(if we still exist) will be long gone from Earth, colonising different star systems. We'll be a nomadic species.

    Sep 16 2012: Dead is dead. Here is the kicker. You sound like someone who has given up. The only true loser is the one who does not try.

    You give me a choice of die before the world end or die as it ends. My choice is neither. I will seek a resolution as to why the world is dying and fight to save it until I'm gone.

    I refuse to go peacefully into that night ..... I'm kickin, scratchin, and clawing to save your quiter butt and my own.

    So here is the deal. What is wrong ... work to correct it. You don't vote ... don't bitch about the results. You don't work to save the planet ... get the hell out of the way of those who do.

    Sep 16 2012: In Islam people believe that when the sun rises from west instead of east, humanity will have 100 years left to live. Yes, not a very convincing but i'm respecting of course. On the other hand, Einstein said '' if the bee disappeared off the surface of the globe then man would only have four years left to live.'' Everyone has different ideas and belief about end of the world but my opinion is closer to Einstein said because the world has became a bad place to live environmentally as days pass and i think precautions are not enough right now. If i come back to your question, i don't want to be alive in that time. We have seen lots of terrible times sufficiently in the world and lost some loved ones but in the end everybody will disappeared permanently so i don't want to watch that film. The best is die before the world end.
  • Sep 16 2012: yah you right Enjoy Your Life Today Because Yesterday Has Gone and Tomorrow May Never Come.
    But why you want to run away from the truth. Did god created you for nothing.? or you aren't believing in god too.
    I don't know what wrong with people minds don't want to know the truth.
  • Sep 16 2012: yah you are right nobody know when the world is going to end, but it going to end.
  • Sep 15 2012: why you think the world isn't going to end?
