Can the world as we know it : just go on and on and on or will it just self destruct because of all the hatred and wars that we have ?

"As we know it" will never be true. It's hard to notice but nothing is ever the same as it was. You can barely notice the difference from right now to right now in three seconds. Everything is changing and we are all dying one moment at a time. Can you remember a time when you were much younger or filled with so much rage you might hurt someone? Can you fathom being that person now? We are not even consistent within our own minds so how could we hope to see the universe stay the same? "Time will march forward and we will all be lost in it for the future inhabitants to wonder about. Think about all the wars in our past and yet here we are. We are adaptive. Even if we all nuke each other it's likely there will be survivors and people will adapt. There is a chance there are no survivors if that does happen though, slim I think.

it can go on and on forever, because there will always be good to combat the evil, and there will always be times of peace between the times of chaos, and eventually God will come and end all the problems anyway, so its no big deal

God will not end all the problems. Man will be the root cause of his own end. I am sorry your world is such that you do not think how the world ends is a big deal...it may not be to you and that is your problem and not for me to try to change or say you are wrong....i just do not agree with you.

God will end all the problems, considering the fact that he will come to earth, cast satan into the pit, and purify all human souls, this will remove all inclination to evil, and eternal peace will reign, the end of the world isnt a big deal for me, because i know where i stand with God, i do not fear death, because i find comfort in God's mercy

The hatred and wars that we have have been on the go since day one...There is nothing new.

Actually, I think as brutal as they are nowadays, they are less brutal than they were wayyy back when.

It will still go on, but it might just be a worse world if we keep going at each others' throats like animals.

Well, scientifically speaking, without the sun, a human (and any organisms) can't really survive. If humans die out, life still can go on but without the sun, bye bye existence...

@Ashleah well the dun is about 4.57 billion years old. So it's about half way through it's life. The Sun will slowly turn into a red giant in about 4.5 billion year and about two billion years later, it will shed it's outer layers and become a white dwarf. For the Earth, that mean when the Sun turns into a red giant, the Suns envelope will expand until it nearly touches the Earth. Then we are done for. ^_^

Wait a sec, are you serious right now, do you actually believe that, or are you writing a novel?

I'm serious.... It's called "science". Ask any Astrophysicist.
Report as
No, it's called atheism. Because if you believe the world is billions of years old, you believe in evolution. But I'm getting off topic here. In short, when the world ends - IF it ends - it won't be because the sun "died". That's rediculous.

Wars will come and go, we will see bad, we will see good, we will see the conflict between the two, the sun will shine and rain will nourish crops & flowers, storms will wash away the land and kill people, people will rebuild, we will love, we will hate, our loved ones will die, babies will be born....a continuing cycle until the End of Time.....and only God knows when that is. You and I are not responsible for the hate and destruction out there. The best thing we can do is try to live in peace by being tolerant of others. To end this on a smile: Live, Love, Laugh and Dance like no one is watching!!! Smile, Betty, God loves you.

Hatred and wars have been a part of human history since the earliest times. It has been assumed for millennia that this war or that would lead to man's, or the world's imminent demise. Despite the uncounted centuries of this, we are still here and so are hatred and wars. The beat goes on.

Today there seems to be a lot of violence. But in the distant, and not so distant past, violence was completely acceptable then. If a powerful country wanted what a weaker country had, they invaded and took it. People sold into slavery, and it was all right to do so. If a woman was raped, her life was ruined, and no one thought very much about the man, who could just go on with his life.
Wives and children were beaten by the man of the house, and it was considered "discipline". You've heard of the "rule of thumb"; that was the understanding that a man could beat his wife or child with a stick if the stick was no bigger around than his thumb. Today such behavior would get him thrown in jail.
We react to violence with disgust and dismay. In older times, violence was accepted it as the way of the world.
We ARE improving, but it's a slow process. The fact that today we're shocked at violence when it breaks out shows that we have improved. We can't give up standing against violence; if we do, we're going to slide back. Civilization never stands still; it either gets better or it gets worse. We have to see that it gets better, slowly if necessary, but better.

No, the world or the earth will not self destruct. God created the earth perfect, it is man who has ruined it with pollution and filthy practices. Isaiah 45:18 (NIV) says "For this is what the Lord says--he who created the heavens, he is God; he who fashioned and made the earth, he founded it; he did not create it to be empty, but formed it to be inhabited--he says: I am the Lord, and there is no other." The earth was created to be inhabited, and God did not create it for nothing.

But due to human imperfection and the influence of Satan and the demons, man cannot bring peace to the earth. They can excel in technology and all sorts of wondrous things, but their greed and hateful arrogance has turned the world into what we see today. Only God can bring about a change for peace and security. God's kingdom, as prophesied at Daniel 2:44 is the only hope for change, and that will come in God's due time.

Good question!

The world is always in flux. It is inevitable that an end will come (the like of which is well beyond our comprehension). Sadly it is likely to be spurred on by zealots who preach love and charity and know not what they do.

It is possible for humanity to achieve such a degree of increased scientific knowledge that we could easily survive our Sun's eventual death. Look at the scientific gains made in the last 200 years, with religion fighting it every single step of the way. Imagine how far we'll go once the last person grows up and leaves silly fairy tales to our distant ancestors.

Hi Betty, I believe that's why the time will be cut short. Otherwise none would have been saved. That's why there is such a strong emphasis on persevering. peace.
