Can the world come to an end?

Report as

It "Can".
The world, and all it's people that inhabit it, can (And most likely will) come to an end at some point in the future. As for when, that isn't known.

The Earth's end will come when our sun's supply of Hydrogen runs out causing it to burn it's supply of Helium. Becoming a red giant star, swelling up to about 3 times it's current size and engulf the Earth. It is inevitable our sun is going to die and when it does our entire solar system will be destroyed. But by best scientific estimates that won't happen for around 4.5 billion more years, so Earth will be around for a long time to come.

Well that is the most likely way the Earth will be destroyed. There are other ways though. It could be completely demolished by a comet twice it own size for instance. (Not very likely.) It could be brokend up and carted away by beings who wish to use its natural resources. (More likely than the comet twice the size of Earth.)

Also, keep in mind that it is possible that the inhabitants of Earth will perish much sooner than Earth itself.

It is physically able to come to an end, yes. However, this is not likely to happen for, ooh, another couple of billion years or so, so we might just be safe.

Of course it can. It is more likely though that mankind will end before the world ends.

In my opinion, the world comes to an end when one dies. Most people believe that stories linked to the end of the world are just but mere eschatological beliefs.

The world will come to an end, there are many ways it can, and one of those proven will happen is the suns life ending and causing a large explosion probably destroying earth in the process, and if not destroy earth we would have nothing to keep us in orbit and we'd go floating off somewhere and it would start getting pretty cold..

It CAN, but that doesn't necessarily mean it WILL. It most definitely WILL end in the next couple of centuries, I believe. I am guessing lack of water, or over population will kill us. (Darwin's theory of over population) Unless we kill each other first. A natural phenomenon, outbreak virus, clones....there are millions of ways....I just hope I personally won't be around to witness it.

Yep... but only when the Sun (which is a star) will explode into a supernova. Which is in about... 8.9 billion years. No kidding.

The World itself will not come to an end - however, this "system of things" as we know it will end. (Daniel 2:44) This system which consist of wickedness and an unjust way of ruling against mankind. The horrid happening and the unfair treatment of the masses will end when God's intervene and brings an end this this "wicked world" as we know it.

However, the earth, the universe as we know it will never end.

Yes. I believe the world will end millions of years from now, but my theory is that that the sun will die out, getting rid of all electricity, and life whatsoever.

Yes, the world can come to an end. But that depends on when the sun will burn out and become a dead star.

It actually will. Stars die out right? Eventually our star, the sun, will die out and bitter coldness will run throughout or solar system. We'll all die. But, that won't happen in a long, long, long, long, long, long, long, time.
