There'll always be something.  This is nothing but a diagnosis that 50 million Americans have some sort of problem with rational and citical thinking.
It's a very bad statement.

How did you feel around  this same time in 1999, when Y2K and millenial nonsense started being spewed everywhere?

hmmm... in 99 I was slightly concerned that my computer might not boot up the morning of 1 Jan 2000, but that was about it... I laughed at the millinialists, because I knew the new millinium didn't really start till 2001.

"Nearly 15 percent of people worldwide believe the world will end during their lifetime"

How did this become about Americans again? :unsure2:

Apparently, it's about eveeryone and you take some exception about me pointing out how many Americans that implies...~50 million.
If it makes you happy, that's about 1 billion people worldwide...meaning that there are about 6.95 billion non-Americans who believe this stuff too!  And that's bad...really bad.


I'm not really sure it was even worth bringing the American issue up... :td:


But we can try something  else!


Everyone's world will end...at the very end of their lifetime.

What will all the online armchair pundits do when the date on December of this year comes and passes? Who will be left to mock and look down upon?

Well, there's still Americans. :P

I doubt some are really waiting for the day after, as much as enjoying telling others that they are.

It will happen.....

Thing is, no one told us the truth.

The world will end, and when it does, we will be put into a exact replica of our lives and world as we new it......We will not even notice it ended.

MID I think you are seriously over estimating the population of the world if you think that 6.95 billion people are 15%

Okay, I'm fairly certain after these last few replies that we are most likely headed for a never-ending, daily replicating war with zombies, who may or may not be hiding underground now, causing confusion in our world population figures.

Only thing that leaves me guessing is how the ancient aliens are involved in this inevitable impending scenario. None of you can logically deny that they are involved.

I was just curious as to why you specifically pointed out how sad so many people in the US are when the topic was about the world population. So many threads, that have nothing to do with the US, get derailed because people seem to associate everything back to it. Many people say that Americans think everything centers around the US and yet I see many non-Americans relating topics that have nothing to do with the US back to it.

The world  doesn't revolve around the US so it's a little pet peeve of mine. No hard feelings? :su

WHAT?! And miss out on final world peace sometime in the future! Oh no, no, no, we gotta see if that delusional dream comes about first before we call for the end of the world, man.

Where's your self-imposed optimism for godsakes?
