We’re doomed! Laugh, yes, but a billion people actually believe it
No wonder crocks like the man-made global warming scare have such an easy time getting a leg up…
(Reuters) – – Nearly 15 percent of people worldwide believe the world will end during their lifetime and 10 percent think the Mayan calendar could signify it will happen in 2012, according to a new poll.
You narcissistic wankers! Earth is 4.3 BILLION years old, in a universe 14 BILLION years old, but no, it’s all going to end in YOUR precious lifetime.
Give me a frickin’ break. How far do people’s heads have be wedged up their own arses to think their pathetic life is so important that literally the cosmos will stop during their blip of an existence?
But what really get’s me is the 15%. That’s around a BILLION people.
A billion people all walking round thinking the end is nigh (and acting at least somewhat in accordance?) Billion years, schmillion years… nup, it’s all going down sometime in the next 50 years or so, during mmmmyyy lifetime.
It’s times like this one is reminded the human race is at where it’s at because of a few people – the Caesars, the da Vincis, the Einsteins – that it’s not some kind of mass Borg-like super consciousness that has propelled our advancement ever forwards.
