Warning: The world's ending

Yes it is. No don’t run for your life right now. You still have time to read this before the world actually begins to end! You are not getting what I am saying, eh?

Well, I am not one of those 2012 how-will-the-world-end theorists. Neither am I from some sort of a religious group that has successfully formulated the exact date and time by the help of some ancient cryptic text for the end of the world to come. I already here the groans of those who have come here to find another far fetched end-of-the-world theories.

But I am not going to deny the fact that the world is going to end. It will folks, it will. But not this year, and not the way you may have imagined. There will be no freaky earth quakes the eat up entire nations, no magma exploding out off non-volcanic craters, no great floods that will swallow the continents entirely, no alien armada that will suddenly attack earth, no meteors and asteroids bombarding the planet, no moon crashing on earth, no sudden severe changes in temperature that will wipe out all life, no planet X is going to come and hit our planet, no mysteries ‘web-bot’ predictions are going to come true, no zombie attacks, no mutant animals gone wild and definitely no nanobots are going to take over the world.

That does not mean that the world is not ending. It is ending as I write this, slowly dying an inevitable death. The world will end. But not as we perceive its end, wherein all life form will be terminated or the entire planet will be destroyed. The world that we know and are so attached to will cease to be: and change will come, so different, so alien that we will not be able to recognize it were we to come back and see the world. The same way as a primitive man would not be able to recognize our world as the same place he’d lived on and that we are the same species.

So go on and live your life without worrying about the end of the world, the world is coming to an end, but not in your life time!
