When will the world end? A look at scientific forecasts and prophecies

When will the world end?

Human beings have been asking the same question for hundreds of years: when will the end of the world come? What will happen? Will the planet die, or will we go extinct?

Some claim to know the planet’s expiry date

Through millenarian visions or alleged scientific forecasts, some claim to know when the end will come.

The Apocalypse of Saint John

There were already various prophecies about the end times in the times of the Roman Empire. But the Apocalypse of Saint John is perhaps the most influential biblical text on the signs that will announce the world’s end.

The Bible says the end will come but fails to give a date

However, the Bible does not include a specific date when that particular Armageddon will occur.

The Mayans had an end date for the planet but…

According to the most widespread interpretation of the Mayan calendar, the world was going to end in December 2012.

…it was just the end of an era

But here we are still here! However, some scholars clarify that the Mayans spoke of the end of a cycle and the beginning of another era, not of the definitive end of the human race.

The end of the world (Ragnarök) according to the Vikings

Some interpreted the legends of the Viking civilization about Ragnarök (the battle of the end of the world), putting the planet’s end date in 2014. But that didn’t happen, either.

Halley’s Comet sparked panic in 1910

Halley’s Comet, whose passage lit up the sky in 1910, sparked a collective wave of hysteria and fear of the world’s end.

A gas that would end all life on Earth

As Wired recalls, the French astronomer Camille Flammarion argued in media such as The New York Times that when the comet passed by, “cyanogen gas would permeate the atmosphere and possibly extinguish all life on the planet.”


And other times, a round figure was enough to unleash a certain amount of fear. It happened in the year 1999, everyone was worried about “The Year 2000” problem.

The year 2000 came without any problems

However the collapse of computers and cybernetic material that some experts claimed would occur never happened. And both machines and humans quietly entered the 21st century without any “Y2K” disasters.

A best-seller that predicted a failed end of the world

And another 20th-century prophecy: was made in the book ’88 Reasons Why the Rapture Will Be in 1988′ by NASA engineer and biblical researcher Edgar C. Whisenant.

The author sold 5 million books but the rapture never came

According to the book (an evangelical metaphor for the end times), the rapture would occur in 1988. Edgar C. Whisenant sold almost five million books, and the world did not end.

The coming end of the world: Newton’s prediction

Not only visionaries or prophets have predicted the end of the world. There are also scientists who have spoken about this matter.

Newton believed the world would end in 2060

Isaac Newton (in the illustration) set a date for the world’s end: 2060. But, according to an article in the Daily Mail, it was not a scientific calculation but based on religious texts.

A science-based apocalyptic prediction with a very specific date

But there have been scientific studies that have tried to calculate when the final outcome will come.

Why do CO2 lag behind temperature?

71% of the earth is ocean, small temperature changes in the oceans doesn’t only modulate air temperature, but it also affect the CO2 level according to Henry’s Law.

The reason it is called “Law” is because it has been “proven”!

“.. scientific laws describe phenomena that the scientific community has found to be provably true ..”

That means, the graph proves CO2 do not control temperature, that again proves (Man Made) Global Warming, now called “Climate Change” due to lack of … Warming is – again – debunked!

100% Data Tampering

What kind of a problem would need FAKE and manipulated documentation?

Look at all these “Climate Agreements.” We continue to lose money, prosperity and freedom while the CO2 level continue to increase, when do we say enough??
