"God is the name by which I designate all things which cross my path violently and recklessly, all things which alter my plans and intentions, and change the course of my life, for better or for worse."
-C G Jung
4 billion brown skinny people will summon a torrential storm of human **** that will not end for weeks and will erase western civilization and leave the remainder fertile for the agriculture of the worlds abused...
I believe the end of the world as we know it is coming, but not the end of life (even human life) on Earth. What I foresee is a massive change in what the world is like on a grand scale. A New Era if you will.
I also believe we are going to see a big change. It's likely to get ugly before it gets better. I don't really know what will set it off or if it will be in my life time. I just know things can't continue to go in the direction they are. There is entirely to much divide. Hell our own country can't even unite unless something bad happens.
I have prepared in case it happens while I am alive, but I hope it doesn't. I would rather the world worked out it's issue instead of fight them out. Either way I am prepared for both.

It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.Pynchon - Gravity's Rainbow
From a religious standpoint no man knows when the Rapture will ensue.
From a differing pov, who really knows when the world will end? I think the best actions for us as a whole is to use as much green energy like wind and solar as possible. Find the most effective means to cut back on exhaust fumes which pollute our ozone layer. Every person should invest in their own gardens for self-sufficiency. Take care of the Earth, nurture it, and you will provide, at least from an ecological view, a better world for your descendants.
Libertarian and Atheist...wow I'm a hated man.
I was around in 1978. Today has nothing on that era.
Gas shortages, gas lines, gas rationing, people believing it was the end of the fossil fuel era. 3 Mile Island scares people off nuclear. The USSR was still expanding its evil empire and pointing missles at us and threatening to use them. Carter, talking about the "misery index". Recession, jobs gone, textiles gone, manufacturing going bye bye. Hostages in Iran. Plane hijackings every week. Israel and the middle east constantly on the verge of another war.
Many believed the end was near. The end of America, or the end of the world. Few felt any hope.
Those were dark days.
This? This is nothing.
