  • Sometimes it's better to keep the mystery unexplained.

Scientists have set a new date for the end of the world - but it is not for another two billion years.

All animals and plants will vanish from the Earth, which will be inherited by tiny microbes before life disappears completely, a new study suggests.

Ironically, Armageddon is going to arrive as a result of too little, rather than too much, carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.

hmmm... too little carbon instead of too much? That would mean that most animals would have vanished at the time. Why do I suspect that somebody is trying to pull a Monckton on us here?

In 2 billion years we might not even exist anymore.....or we'd have evolved into amoeba or jelly like beings from our lack of exercise!! lol

On a serious note: I remember reading that the sun will implode in a couple of billion years anyway, just like all stars do.

No matter what happens....never stop believing in people.....never stop believing in love♥♥

That's the rumour.  They have NO natural ingredients.

I think that, given such an enormous amount of time, that most if not all humans will be far away from this "rock" before the Sun decides to do a "death throw"

With such a large time, really, a VERY large time, I can only assume that we will be FAR out of the solar system.
