There was no way that the world was going to end, because wouldn’t you think that that everything would be going crazy or a giant meteor in the sky would be blazing towards our ultimate destruction. Those people who said it was going to happen were wrong, but if the world was going to end why would you want to be right?
It is a good thing that life on Earth didn’t end because we haven’t explored all that we can and we haven’t advanced as far as we can go. Don’t you want to see flying cars? I really don’t want to die until we get those!
