The problem John, is that because you are part of the establishment, you are unable to read coherently as you only want to understand the way you were brought up to understand. It is called indoctrination. Shocked

But when you have been successfully indoctrinated, you cannot see it! QED It is Catch22 I am afraid and you are caught - as has been pointed out to you many times over the last year or two.

So actually your last post was incoherent and reflects more poorly on you than whatever point you were trying to make.

For what it is worth, the article on Automatic Earth, posted by raspberry blower makes a lot of sense. Click on the link folks and read it!

(If you are part of the establishment, you will have serious difficulty understanding it, as has been demonstrated by poor John Hemming.)


Hey snow hope, you still here talking about the end of the world?! Very Happy Very Happy

Nobody in their right mind talks about 'the end of the world'.

The world will carry on. It's looked after itself for a long time and will always do so. Wink

"the end of the world" is a term commonly used as shorthand for the collapse of modern technological civilization, due perhaps to plague, famine, climate change, nuclear war or similar disaster.

This I consider to be entirely possible, though by no means inevitable, in the lifetime of those alive today.

Taking a more literal meaning of the phrase "the end of the world" it is most unlikely that the world itself could be destroyed, as distinct from some disaster overtaking the human race.
