The real end of the world

Not the 2012 garbage. In about 5 billion years, the sun will expand to a giant. When that happens, it will increase to about 20ish times its current size, meaning the earth will be incinerated and reduced to cosmic dust, assuming any dust survives.

What do you think the status of people will be by then? Will we have managed to blow ourselves up long before, or will be go up with the planet, or will we have figured out how to move ourselves out of the solar system by then?

  • OK I beleove in what my name inplies, but even if Jesus did not come before this happende, we would all starve due to global increase in population and not being able to grow enough crops to feed everone. When will it get to be that bad? In 2050 it will be that bad. But I truely beleive Jsus will be back by then.

  • IMO humans will either be out of here by then and/ or we would have destroyed the planet before that happens.

  • mommymeg03 - that is the based on data regarding how long stars survive and how they die. It is the scientifically accepted timeline of our sun.

  • Humans won't still be here. We will have moved on somehow, whether it be to another planet or back.

  • That will happen but in a shorter amount of time and the earth will be restored to the way it was before man sinned.

  • I believe that God will maintain the universe to keep in balance His will, anything can go downhill if not taken care of and since I believe the Bible and it says that THIS earth will remain forever I will trust in Him...Concerning the earth, the psalmist declared: “It will not be made to totter to time indefinite, or forever.”—Ps 104:5.
