We've come so far.. but how many things stand in the way of our long term survival as an intelligent, technological society? This isn't exactly a
prediction thread in the way of it being psychic although I'm sure all these "ways" have been predicted by someone at some point.
Global abnormal weather or natural disasters. (tons of volcanoes go off at once, cali falls into the ocean and causes massive tunamis wiping out
coastal regions worldwide.
Terminal Virus natural/manmade
Extinction event (asteroid/comet/ice age/massive solor flare)
Global religius dispute.
I can see it now... some higher evolved human is born, brought up to believe he's some sort of gift from god, he starts a religion or maybe even
declares himself the messiah of the hebrews. Seeing his "power" many flock to this new/old religion... the christians/catholics and the millions of
off shoot religions declare he's the antichrist.. not to mention all the other "MY GOD can beat up your god" religions.. so the streets of NY turn
into the streets of pakistan... as does it occur over the face of the planet... and we genocide ourselves into extinction.
How about an attack from an intelligent computer virus?
Nanobots gone bad...?
The disruption of the food chain?
Magnetic shift of the poles?
The appearance of a new intelligent evolved earth species?
whoah this is making me tired
a few nights ago I had a dream something happened to the earth.. but instead of hurting it.. it sent it realing through the solar system. I remember
seeing the moon getting farther and farther away... I was wondering where we'd wind up and hoped it had a good view.. I've always thought we got the
short end of the stick as far as outer space eyecandy. Then I remember thinking what being without the moon would do to the weather and if where we
wound up.. would be in an area capable of continuing life. then i believe i woke up before the earth laid to rest...
so anyone else have any ... end of the world theories?
