    Re: End of the world

    Short of a natural disaster that we have no control over we will be fine. Though our government and society will evolve as it has done for centuries.

    Even then I wouldn't expect more then tens of millions of people dieing. Terrible terrible tragedy but not close to "end of times".

    I am just curious to see what the proportions are for what people believe on DP.

    I divided the poll into "younger generation" and "older generation" because for the younger generation (I would define this as 25 or under), this phenomenon may be new to them; for older people, they might have seen a lot of 'end of the world' scares before now but nothing happened. For instance, in my life I saw the Y2K phenomenon and everything was fine.

    EDIT: And by end of the world, it could be literal, as in there will be huge catastrophe that kills most humans; or figurative, we will suffer a huge collapse or paradigm shift to some new way of living. In either case, how our collective society operates now will be fundamentally changed.

    EDIT II: My time frame is not 2012, that was just an example.
    First, I'm 26 about to be 27.
    I am not a part of the "older" generation.

    End of the world, probably not.
    Societal upheaval, I think that is almost a definite.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
