The end?

Practically every mythological system foretells an end of the world, or end of the age. However, the vast majority of them provide for a new world or era to begin immediately thereafter. So I am wondering, in your religious, mythological, or personal belief system is there a new beginning after the end?

  • No. Atheists believe that the world will end, but not by the hand of any deity. Only by our OWN hands. The earth will doubyless continue after we have blown each other to whatever heavenly kingdom we believe in. Humans won't be here then and that can only be a good thing. I believe we need to take care of the earth now because Scotty isn't going to beam us up and take us to a nice new planet to ruin.

  • Yep, in mine there is. Christians get to spend eternal life in heaven, while the non-believers spend it in hell.

  • If there is another beginning, was there really ever an end?

    Answer by MandyOs at 12:27 PM on May. 6, 2009

  • Yes Mandy.. the end would be the old and the beginning would be the new.

    I believe the end is when Christ comes to set up His Kingdom in New Jerusalem. Things will be restored and renewed and changed from the old to the new!

  • Of course! Even though I'm Agnostic, I truely believe that even if there is an ending, there will be a new begining. To quote a line from a great 90's song

    "Every new begining starts with a begining's end"
