The earth will be destroyed eons before the sun goes nova, and long before that life as we know it today will be impossible on the surface. Still, it is incomprehensibly far into the future, and not really something we could do anything about in any case -- except leave the solar system.

But if humans -- or even creatures that remember our culture and consider us their ancestors -- are still around when the sun gets too hot to bear, we should consider that a raving success, since we'd have surpassed the dinosaurs in longevity.

The more immediate concern is polar reversal and lithospheric slippage. It is known that over geologic time, the poles reverse, thus making the south pole the north pole and visa-versa. The transition state is unknown, but my geology professor believed that mass extinctions could result, as the magnetosphere realigned itself. She stressed that it was a hypothesis, not even a real theory, but that if the poles settled over an inhabited area, say North America, the area could be made vulnerable to solar radiation and become sterilized. Some have also suggested that the lithosphere is unstable over geologic time, and may slide suddenly over the mantle, reversing the positions of the continents. This would be catastrophic, but there is little evidence that it has occurred before and it is impossible to predict.

Of even more immediate concern than the above are other cataclysmic events, such as mega volcanoes (like Yellowstone National Park) and global release of sub-oceanic methane deposits leading to mass-kill events in the food chain. Both events have geologic precedents and could happen again.

Did you know Mother Nature wanted you dead?

Yellowstone was the only legit thing about the movie 2012.

That thing is going to blow within the next 500 years.

Paranoia.
The world will end when God destroys it.

Somehow, I don't think this is what you mean, but if you believe in a personal deity Who will someday destroy the world, then by definition you can't be paranoid about the world's destruction -- even if you knew He was going to destroy the world in the next minute. Paranoia requires that you are wrong about somebody being out to get you.

In fact, an atheist can't be paranoid about the end of the world unless he thinks man is going to cause it intentionally, since an accident wouldn't count as "out to get you."

The world won't end in 2012. It will end in May 21st, 2011, because Harold Camping says so.

Deforestation? That's a huge issue, killing off all our plant life. Species going extinct more rapidly then ever.

Things like 2012 are obviously ridiculous. 6.9 billion people aren't going to suddenly drop dead, and the world is not going implode in on itself.

But do you all deny that scientifically, the world and our species as a whole, are not on a path to destroying ourselves?
Now, the life on the earth dying is a different matter.

Deforestation is a much bigger problem than people give it credit for being, especially because there are companies that profit directly off of it.

Global Warming is, in a sense, a confirmed fact. We know the temperature of the planet is changing. That much we know. We're also somewhat sure that humanity is having a direct impact on said temperature. This, like the extinction of many species, appears to be something humanity is speeding up.

All in all, these factors do not seem about to lead to a climax of destruction and chaos, but rather a slow decline, ending with an uninhabitable planet.

The rumors about the world ending exactly on 2012 and that the Mayans predicted it are B.S. The Mayan calender does NOT end on 2012, it merely starts a new cycle. The world will, undoubtedly, "end" eventually, it seems unlikely that it will happen at the start of 2012.

It will be interesting, however, to see how many people panic on December 31st, 2011.

Now we have science to tell us how the world is dying, and when it could possibly end. On top of that, the world is suddenly very interested in Cryptology, so we're also using every other culture in history's basis for the end of the world, too.

So in your opinion, Fact or Paranoia?
Mankind has been fascinated with the end for centuries. Paranoia.

Paranoia really. Nothing's wrong at the moment.
They just make up thiings to keep the people busy.
To get them think about life, to make them buy stuff they dont need.
