Yes, the world will finally come to an end. The baby dragon inside Earth is ready to hatch. The atmosphere around the egg is finally favourable enough, and the eggshell will crack. Yes, we are mere germs living on the egg shell of a planet-size egg. And our climate warming? Artificial incubation.
Or the end will come because the moon is finally old enough and clumsy enough to inevitably lose its balance and stumble straight onto Earth; or the sun will be finally so pissed off by our ignorance that it'll throw flames of million, billion, gerzillion degrees all over Earth and has himself a barbecue.
Or a brick will fall right onto our heads and knock us dead. That's it, the end of the world.
With the recent instances of catastrophes of earth quakes, tsunamis, floods, mud slides, etc in frequency quicker than the incessant sneezing during a cold, it's not surprising that the-end-of-the-world-is-coming theories are surfacing to spread the dooms and glooms here and there. And I have to admit, once in a while, my pessimistic self would get so frivolously optimistic and my optimistic self would get so downright pessimistic that they'll drag my whole self down and succumb to such fear.
But here's a thought - if somehow you get an update (either by a text or a dream, an sms or an mms, a status update or a tweet, an email or a snail mail) from God, or whatever ultimate being that you believe is controlling our fate, that this is it, game over, the journey has reached an end, the final petal of the rose has fallen, the water has run dry, no more time, the world will go bust within three months, or any length of times, would you go spread the message?
There's no question of hallucination. The fate of the world is as sure as the fate of an egg under the feet of a stomping dinosaur. This is it. Would you go tell everyone what you know?
Assured that nobody will throw rotten eggs at you or ridicule you, everybody will believe unreservedly in what you say, would you stand up on a chair, put up your hands, raise you voice and shout, "The world is coming to an end!"
Would you? Would you?
THE WORLD IS COMING TO AN END!!!
