In the aftermath of several natural disasters, from earthquakes to hurricanes, the question is asked:
“Is this the end of the world?” or “is this a sign of biblical prophecy?”
But are there other more immediate threats: Don’t diseases and technological vulnerabilities possess a far greater threat to mankind?
Although disasters are visibly disturbing, and death tolls make us question our own mortality, there seems to be little perspective as to the subject of the “end of the world” or to the number of people who die of heart disease each year (610,000) or day (1,671), compared with dozens during a natural disaster. Technological vulnerabilities make the world of everyday life that much more dangerous and difficult, although they are sold for safety, security and convenience.
Hurricanes Harvey and Irma are estimated to have cost the US nearly $290-billion in damage. Estimates are being run through skewed methods to determine the cost of “climate change,” specifically to coastal regions, with claims that property and lives will never be the same again as the ocean level continues to rise.
Along with polar bears, a staple of “Climate Change” rhetoric is “raising sea levels” and how they “threaten” certain communities. This is similar to the ergo propter hoc fallacy, suggesting that because something happened after, it was causation for what was before. The story seems to be that all coastal property, cities included, has always been there and sea levels have always been static.
It’s as if through ego and arrogance that if we build a house near the sea how dare the water level shift and flood my house! Flooding on the coast, and in low lying areas, is as natural as our inclination to build in these areas, no different than building a home at the base of an active volcano. If you live somewhere not affected by any storm, earthquake, etc., and you walk outside as a hurricane destroys another state, you could have a clear sky and sunshine. Is the world coming to an end where you live? If you watch the news like a cult follower, hearing the same information repeated over and over again, as if you are need of evacuation orders safely a thousand miles away, the fear and panic spreads like an uncontrollable disease. Without perspective the disease becomes terminal and many eventually begin following doomsday pornography waiting for a planet to smash into Earth or a hole to open up and swallow them into the inner flat Earth!
In all likelihood, the world will still be here long after humans are gone. If a massive asteroid struck the planet today with enough force to rock the planet from pole to pole, obliterating most life, including humans, some may still survive. Life will find a way, but it may not be life that maintains the rubble of our modern society. The research of planet x, nibiru, biblical prophecy and the like have so muddied the waters of unconventional subjects, degrading and making a mockery of them.
“The planet has been through a lot worse than us. Been through all kinds of things worse than us. Been through earthquakes, volcanoes, plate tectonics, continental drift, solar flares, sun spots, magnetic storms, the magnetic reversal of the poles…hundreds of thousands of years of bombardment by comets and asteroids and meteors, worlwide floods, tidal waves, worldwide fires, erosion, cosmic rays, recurring ice ages…And we think some plastic bags, and some aluminum cans are going to make a difference? The planet…the planet…the planet isn’t going anywhere. WE ARE!”

“Watch CNN headline news for an hour, its the most depressing fucking thing: war, famine, death, AIDS, homeless, recession, depression… And you look out your window… Where’s all this shit happening?!
