So, just wondering.

Would you want to know when the end of the world comes? And why or why not?

I won't derail with my beliefs that it really doesn't - technically - but I wouldn't want to know day and hour.  I think it is easier to have hope and to keep striving when the end game is unknown.  At least, when the battle is difficult and our faith is being tested.  Strengthening faith through trials is an important thing to me. It's no fun, but neither is running or weight lifting :yes:

Great question.

I haven't answered the survey yet though. I can't decide.

It would depend as well i think. Like circumstances etc.

If it was instant then most likely no, because sometimes ignorance is bliss. But then i would like to say by to my loved ones and go out of my way to spend time with them.

If it was long and suffering then yes, if it was too horrible then I think the choice of suicide would be nice.

Such a difficult thing to consider.

Yes. It would be interesting to see the immortality complex of mankind vanish as we grow closer to the end...and I get to say "If I'm going down, you're coming with me...just don't follow me though." :passifier:

I agree, the point of the forum is to discuss all experiences and avenues. So you shouldn't hold back. :tu:

It would depend on who told me the news and under what circumstances and whether I believe them or not.

So basically, its a don`t know....yet.

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

The Circumstances of the end could be anything at all.. It could be long and painful. It could be short and painless, either way would you want to know? I guess I'm wondering why so many threads exist here pertaining to the end of the world, so in a way I'm wondering why this facination in the End of the world? There is admitably a horrible facination in watching you-tube clips of meteor strikes, or ungodly alien invasions, or end time prophecies and angels blowing trumpets to herald the end and fire anfd brimstone falling from the skies..

Personally I think this facination if born of the innevitability of our own deaths, and in many cases it's become an industry packing lost's of $$$, lol.. As an industry though, it feeds on us suckers. And we support it and perpetuate it, and in one UM Members case, move their families to so-called safe zones were the waves wont get them, or the invasion forces wont go..

Give me about two months if it is going to be total destruction! There will be parties with people we love and don't get to see that often like we have never done before!

Oh I really don't know which I'd choose. lol

Yeah I've done it myself watching those videos. I agree it probably is the fact one day we all individually die. Hollywood cashes in on anything that us suckers find fascinating. Especially when we go through fads.

I would say yes so I can be sure I'm drunk when it happens.  :innocent:

Honestly.. Would it matter who delivered the message?

If Obama called a press conference and said "Hey guy's world will end in three days" Would everyone believe him?
Would the likes of Alex Jones or other 3rd party news sources support him in what he said? Within minutes.. no, seconds, his words would be rubished on the foums and in the news by every conspriacy theorist there is saying "No, no, this is a ploy to create commuter chaos and reduce population" or "Nah, false flag.. the hour will come, nothing will happen, then some GI joe   Lance Armstrong will claim he's saved the world!"

If you had the choice I'd still say none of the above!

Yes, I would want to know the exact time and date.   Be very careful what you wish for you might get it!
It would be an awesome burden of knowing and who if any to share it.

No, I would not want to know till it happens
It doesn't  matter when it happens because we should live each day as if it is the last anyway.

Neither, Speculating & leading others into doom & gloom is fun
I can't really agree with that one either because too much doom and gloom is not fun.
Although I must admit I laugh at speculations some really believe and then seem upset it doesn't happen!
