Ask McFartnuggets: “How Can You Believe People When They Say The World is Coming to an End?”

Dear McFartnuggets: People are always telling me the world is going to end with climate change and super volcanoes and earthquakes, but people have always been predicting the end of the world and they’ve never been right before so what makes people think they’re going to be right this time? -- Rolando from Fort Lauderdale, Florida

Dear Rolando:
While it’s true that people have always been predicting the end of the world and in past predictions they have been wrong, what you have to keep in mind is that eventually the world will end. That puts the end of the world on a timeline and time keeps on going. Therefore the farther in time a prediction of the end of the world is, the more accurate it becomes. So while it may seem logical to ignore predictions about the end of the world and dismiss them as being just another false prediction, the farther we go into this timeline, the more likely these predictions become. You have to view the world as if it was a person. People have been predicting the end when the Earth was a healthy vibrant young woman and they were proven wrong. However, these days we’ve done a bit of damage to the planet and it’s not getting any younger so predicting the end now is like predicting the death of an obese elderly woman with Cancer. It may not happen today, tomorrow, or ten years from now, but it is definitely more likely than it was when the last prediction was made. Hope that helps!
