Not me. I don't think the world will get fucking lucky enough. Even all out Nuclear war wouldn't end humanity like some seem to think.

Talkin' shit about a Nuclear winter will kill us all masturbate.gif

I wonder if this also takes into account all of the 'Mayan 2012' nutjobs.

Well I'm sure they're only a very small minority. The overwhelming majority of the doomsday crowd is no doubt religious crackpots.

It may or may not end but I know it will end personally for me one day. What does it mean world end? Is extinction of humans the world ending? no

The world will always be, life on it will not be. billions of years proves the durability of earth.

It is a possibility that humans will end in my lifetime. who knows for sure though. no one.j


but for sure the world as we know it will end in my lifetime with new tech coming soon and breakdowns of modern societies or evolution of those societies.

ya the article says about 10% GLOBALLY believe in the Mayan 2012, but it didn't say what percent of Americans think so.

I watched an episode of Wife Swap where the family believed in the Mayan 2012, and they were nuts! The spent every day preparing for 12/21/12, by doing all sorts of safety-disaster drills, wearing these radiation suits, etc. This woman carried a backpack of safety tools everywhere she went, and when one guy told her to take it off she was like, "NO, DON'T COME ANY CLOSER!"

it was bizarre. ill have to find the episode and embed it.

Responses to the international poll of 16,262 people in more than 20 countries varied widely with only six percent of French residents believing in an impending Armageddon in their lifetime, compared to 22 percent in Turkey and the United States and slightly less in South Africa and Argentina.

But only seven percent in Belgium and eight percent in Great Britain feared an end to the world during their lives.

Gottfried also said that people with lower education or household income levels, as well as those under 35 years old, were more likely to believe in an apocalypse during their lifetime or in 2012, or have anxiety over the prospect.
So the more religious (uneducated) the population is the more they believe in an end of times Armageddon.
Not a surprise.
What's more worrying is that these religious fucktards are actually looking forward to it. The coming of the messiah and all that crap. And even worse, some of them end up as politicians.

it didn't say anything about religious but it did say uneducated - which doesn't shock me. it also doesn't shock me they're lower income.
