    The cool thing about end times is you can only be proven wrong. If anyone is ever right no one will know.

    And what do all those have in common? They were all wrong. And will continue to be.

    If God is out there and has intentions to end the world in some way (and especially if we're patterned after Him) I have a feeling that the moment He heard someone call out or settle on the actual date he chose to end the world, He'd say something like "Aw shoot! I can't use that date now! I wanted it to be a surprise!"

    I predict the world will end Thursday 12th July 3398. Which is about as accurate as any other date of doom.

    I just assume the world ends on a daily basis.

    The world ends when I go to sleep and gets recreated the next morning for my benefit.

    I find according to 1 Thessalonians 5:2-3 people definitely will know.
    When ' they ' (powers that be) will be saying, "Peace and Security" that is the precursor to the coming great tribulation of Revelation 7:14, before Jesus, as Prince of Peace, will usher in global Peace on Earth among people of goodwill.

    Define "world." Is it the planet? the currently operating biosphere? humans? civilization?

    What specific event will mark this end?

    If Prof. McPherson is right -- and he's studied the subject extensively -- we've already passed the tipping point. The arctic tundra is spewing out methane, decreasing albedo from melting ice/snow is accelerating the process, the oceans are warming and it's only a matter of time till the "clathrate gun" goes off.
    He predicts human extinction and ecological collapse within ten years. Climate-Change Summary and Update – Nature Bats Last
    But no specific date.

    Isn't it the world's doom-and-gloom Doom's Day Clock, with man setting its hands now set close to striking the dark midnight hour, helping show we are nearing an end. Not the end of Earth, but rather the end of a world of badness to come to an end before Jesus, as Prince of Peace, will usher in global international Peace on Earth among persons of goodwill. What appears to be an end is really a new beginning coming.

    I can agree with 'surprise' because No one knows the date according to Matthew 24:36.

    As science works towards figuring out what caused the Big Bang, I find Isaiah 40:26 already explained that it was God's ' Power and Strength ' ( His dynamic energy ) is what caused the Big Bang.

    A while back one person said to me 'peace talks' always came after a war ended, but she observed that there are peace talks now even before a war ends. So, I can agree the powers often do say peace, even when and where there is No real peace.
    However, the words of 1 Thessalonians 5:2-3 is about an out-of-the-ordinary saying of Peace and Security.
    The 'world scene' will seem to look peaceful, perhaps even rosy, but that saying of Peace and Security will prove false.

    Worst scientific explanation ever. God's power and strength are meaningless unqualified concepts.

    This thread is in the Joke section. I could respond with more emojis but somehow I don't think that's your point.

    I would think even a child knows the concept of the word power and the word strength.
    God used His power, God used His strength to create - Psalms 104:30; Psalms 33:6; Isaiah 40:26; Jeremiah 10:12
