    I think I will continue to plant and harvest and watch my grandchildren grow up and encourage them go to college,go on missions, marry and have children, and do as much good as they can, and try to live peaceably with each other and their fellowmen.----

    We're doomed!

    DOOMED! (Sarcasm)

    Just like:

    The furor over a prediction by the Mayan culture that is largely defunct, is foolish.

    Shouldn't the world have 'ended' with Cortez?

    Regardless, by definition any 'apocalypse' would be inevitable and encompase EVERYONE on earth.

    So, the logic of worrying about something you 1) Cannot stop and 2) Will affect EVERYONE, is....?

    There are probably as many ideas of an apocalypse as there are people but one thing I do believe is the world nations are going to implode in to total and feudal destruction. A world of organized chaos that will redefine chaos.

    And it will all end with the United States and its grandiose ideas of Manifest Destiny to rule the world just as it was used to push progress across the US in the 1850's. Manifest destiny and eminent domain are popular US take over clauses in most foreign countries but the nations have been pushed beyond their means to remain organized. So it will all implode and US debts and IOU's will be demanded by our debt holders. The US has planted our debts and promises of payment in the hands of foreign countries hoping it will stave off demands for payment but I don't think it will work anymore. Nations working on a balanced budget will not withstand issuing promissory notes to its citizens and armies.

    If we think the real-estate implosion and collapse was bad, just wait for the US to meet its climatic national implosion maybe next mid year.
