World to end

04 July 2013, 20:50

At last, scientists have now established the new date when the world will end. So the Rapture community and the likes of Harold Camping et al can now relax. Their sensationalist revelations are no longer required because we have an official date. They can pencil in the year 2000002013AD in their diaries.

That's right. The date has been set at 2 billion years, give or take a decade or two, from now. Unfortunately, the Rapture pundits will not be able to enjoy the last day on Earth in the luxury of their deck chairs whilst awaiting the event. The reason, they will have been roasted into oblivion millions of years before that.

Why?

The reason is that as the Sun ages and grows hotter, greater evaporation and chemical reactions with increased rainwater will lock away more and more carbon dioxide. That will result in the loss of fauna and flora as the greenhouse effect takes over. Intense heat will cause the oceans to evaporate and life will cease to exist long before the death of the Earth.

That means that the far future Earth will be very hostile to life.

Unfortunately for the Rapture fraternity, they seem to have gotten their biblical maths a tad wrong. Perhaps they should consult the scientists to get the correct calculations. Unless of course, they can get their belief and faith to make it happen some other way.
