We’re all aware of the 21st December 2012 theory, right? I used to piss myself at the mention of it, before I read somewhere that the world as we know it will end in 2032, not 2012. But before you start panicking, read this, which NASA themselves wrote about the matter.
- Reasons the world should end -
Awkward silence. There are reasons it should end? Yup, there are.
We got one planet, one little sweet Earth, and we killed her. I watched Apocalypto a few days ago, and the people seemed so close to the Earth! Maybe a little violent, but they weren’t limited in any way. You want to take a bath in the river? Okay, you can just jump in the one right outside your hut. Now, we probably have to notify a bunch of people of our intentions, make sure it’s allowed, and potentially face charges. People, we don’t connect to the planet anymore.
Seriously, look at animals, then look at our race. We don’t even look like we belong here! We did a few millions of years ago, when we wore fresh leather and had hair all over the place. Now it’s obvious we don’t belong here. For the superstitious there is even a theory that Satan created our race, and we didn’t naturally evolve like all the other animals.
We’re destroying everything. Every three minutes, the size of five football pitches of rainforest is being deforestated! Everyone lives their life day for day; no one wants to take responsibility. Then, when the rumors of our world ending pop up, people start thinking about spaceships and moving to other planets. Yeah, are you going to ruin Mars as well?
Technology has gone too far. Seriously. IPods, iPads and now mini iPads? What, so you need three sizes of the same thing? And apparantely, cars can now drive themselves. Even more time for you to text someone about how big the size of the thing you just excreted was! And those Google Glasses? I don’t want to constantly be connected to the internet! My dad makes these jokes that one day, the toilet will need to search for a connection to the internet before you’re allowed to take a piss.
Everyone’s scared of killer robots, yet people continue trying to make them. Look, buddy. One day, those robots (if they have a mind of their own, which the stupid scientists are trying to achieve inventing) are going to realize we’re controlling them. They’re not going to like that we turn them on and off whenever we want, and use them for experiments, like slaves. Then they’re going to rebel. And you think we’re going to win? Those metal bastards will have the whole internet at their hands. What do we have? A phone with it’s slow network (a Nokia might help, you know, with it’s amazing unbreakability).
In the end, we’re all just corrupting our Earth.
- Reasons why the world shouldn’t end -
Firstly – I would not want to live through any kind of cataclysm – the 2012 movie didn’t look like good fun at all. Secondly, if the world end, no only do we die, but so do all the animals! Yeah, that’s right! All those cute little sneezing pandas and teacup pigs that did nothing to wrong anyone! In fact, the only living things that do stand a chance of survival is bacteria. Mhm, those little brats that made you sneeze all over the celebrity that visited your school. How would you like that?
If the world ends, everything in our life goes to waste. Everything we’ve ever created. Everything our ancestors carefully designed (and got help from aliens), like the Maya pyramids or the Pyramids of Giza. Everything. Yup, that clay statue you made in first grade, too. Our discoveries, memoirs, pointless graffiti.
For those still in school, the dreaded school being will be the last thing they see. Our school’s last day is on the 21st December. Freakin’ awesome.
We deserve a chance, and we deserve hope. If the Earth calls it quits (or the Sun goes all Angry Birds on us), it’s the end of everything.
So what do you think? Should or shouldn’t the world end?
Note: The world won’t end, we will. See how egoistic we are, thinking we are the world?
