You know, I'm getting a little tired of all these "predictions."
If something will happen, then it will.
Our mass consciousness is too caught up in the Judeo-Islamic-Christian concept of "The Apocalypse" that even if is NOT true, I believe that the massive psychic consciousness will cause the events to unfold regardless.
Belief is a powerful too. One man can't change the world. 10 billion people who all believe the End is near can most likely cause something to happen.
Thus, I believe this is man's own undoing, by following the prophecies of doom and destruction.
All of Europe believed the end was near around 1000 AD, a greater percentage of the population than those that believe today. It didn't seem to happen.
