On the topic, the end of the world has been predicted to come in numerous times of years, none of them were correct. I don't believe in that kind of stuff until I see it happening myself.
In which case you wouldn't be discussing it on a Pokemon forum after the fact.

Said loads of time already, but had to say something on topic: what'll probably end Earth as we know it is either a Gamma Ray Burst or a meteor hitting Earth. THose are more like to end our civilization than the sun expanding, because that'll happen so unbelievably far in the future.

Anyway, the off-topic thing I really wanted to post, is about the reference to the Mayans. It is thought that the Mayans had, and used hot air balloons to, yes, fly. Wikipedia says this about it:

Quote:
There is also some speculation that hot air balloons were used by the Nazca Indians of Peru some 1500 years ago as a tool for design vast drawings on the Nazca plain.
Too bad it's a bit short :S. I have this link describing how researchers tried to rebuild hot air balloons with materials and tools of that time, and they succeeded. It's in Dutch though, and I'm only giving it to show I'm not making stuff up .

Offffffffftopic, yet intruiging. Or something.

So THAT'S how the Incas did the Nazca lines. That shatters the alien theory.

Yeah, it is a kind of sad thought. But then again, it won't happen for a REEEEAAAALLY long time, so people will be remembering Earth for quite a while after they leave it. I hope Oo. It's depressing to think that we might forgot about this and other planets as they vanish, for whatever reason.

We can't say you die tomorrow because we can never know, even if an assassination attempt was made known to us that would occur the next day. The assassination could be diverted or stopped, so we can never say that we'll die tomorrow.

We can die minutes later from now, but we'll never know until that time comes. The same is with the end of the planet. Only the people who will be unfortunate enough to be there when the Earth is destroyed will be able to know at the exact moment the Earth is destroyed.

No, I do not believe the end will come in 5 years, but I know one thing. Each man will die by what he lives.
Amen. *Appluads.* << I think I spelled that wrong XD. Anyways, I agree with you 100% on this. Which is sort of why I'm glad I most likely won't be here when the Earth goes POOM, or whatever .

At any rate, what will happen will happen when it happens and there's nothing humans (or any other life form) can do about it.
