Sorry but I have to comment here. This is an advert. from the “Weather channel”. All I have to say is the following: If they are as accurate with their forecasting of “the end” as they are with the weather, no worries! (Hope they don’t snatch this video off my blog, but anyway here goes.) If for some reason they do. copy and paste the following: http://www.
And my other comments would be that people are born and die every day. For various reasons, too many (as I’ve recently mentioned) totally and completely unnecessary and preventable, but having said that, each of us faces “the” incontrovertible END, whether it is one at a time or more, it still eventually happens to each of us. So once again I question the rationale of this program, apart from raising viewership through sensationalism and promoting fear!
Just my thoughts on the subject. What are yours? (with specific reference to how the commercial presents this new series) And yes I do watch the weather channel and have enjoyed many of their highly informative shows. Today is the 23rd, the show aired on the 21st so … so far so good!

I agree with Barb, why worry about something we can’t control? We can control how we lead our lives, with integrity, with service to others, with passion, to name a few. We are all going to go some time, so if we have led a good life, that is what is important I believe. Anything for increased viewership, right?
Yes, that sums it up nicely LuAnn! 🙂
I am reminded of a statement made by Mark Twain: “Everyone talks about the weather but nobody does anything about it.” Same with the end of the world. What can you do about it? Nothing. Why worry about something that you cannot control?
Good Advice from both of you! Thanks Barb! 🙂
How many end of times have been predicted in my life.??? too many to think about… when they can get the weather right I’ll listen to such a program…
Exactly right Bulldog, my friend!
No fear! I’ve survived several end of times…
xx 🙂 🙂 xx
I so get that one!!!! 🙂 xo
Fear mongering, like seriously? People have so much stress daily, why do they need more of this? The best way is for everyone to diss them and not watch the series!
I Agree Ruby, I do enjoy watching any show presenting intelligent research on most subjects, but if the show is anything like the commercial, I for one will give it a pass!
Crazy huh! 🙂
I’ve come to believe our particular planet has experienced various cycles of rebirth over the eons; that Earth’s population gets too much for it to handle and something traumatic occurs to wipe out what’s here. Then, life begins anew. It’s also possible we’re the descendants of humans from other planets who escaped when their world began to crumble under the weight of over-population and resource extinction. Once Earth begins to disintegrate under similar circumstances, some of our people will flee to another planet and start all over. Of course, I have no proof of that. But, who knows? Life is full of mysteries.
Yes it is, like you I am also fascinated about the past, present and future and the mysteries of what we think we know but don’t. I like your thoughts. They are rational and make much sense Alejandro.
AnElephantCant watch the Weather Channel
In Scotland it is obsolete
We don’t need them to show
Any new pictures of snow
They just keep running the same old repeat
And for your great blog one more rhyme
It’s The End Of The World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine)
Excellent take on the end of the End! Like the song too! 🙂
OMG!!! I’M GOING TO BE HIT BY A METEOR …. no .. wait. it’s going to be sunny.
It will happen again. One day. Millions of years from now. As long as we have our Bruce Willis, Liv Tyler and Ben Affleck characters, we have no worries. We have more chance of being struck by lightning while holding a triple rollover winning lottery ticket that we found laying on the floor.
Love the sensationalism of it all
