What difference is there between
"The world will never die because it hasn't died yet."
and "I will never die because I haven't died yet."?


You're missing the point. None of these predictions have had any merit to start with. It's all superstitious nonsense, really.

I think the US government is going to do something stupid that day. I am an American, don't get me wrong, but our government needs help.

what time on the 21st??


Solstices were always important for the Mayas, so I would say whenever the winter solstice happen in your country.


So the world is going to end at different times...around the world?

Someone didn't think that through. :D


Alright, probably when it happen in Mexico then.

Just a matter of time before we start reading about mass end of the world suicides and perhaps an end of the world party shootout here & there.


Because that totally happened the last 10 times the world was going to end this decade, right?

I remember the mass suicide parties that occurred on Y2K and 6/6/06. OH WAIT, NO!

Nah, I understand this.

I simply dislike the smug mentality that the world will never end because it hasn't happened yet.

To be fair, I haven't really seen that in this thread.

Remember the Dinosaurs? I bet they didn't expect to all die at once.
