End of the World?

Here's a good debate for you that like to argue your own point of view very stongly. The end of the world. If you're not religious, the end of the world probably means that two or more countries will nuclear strike the rest of the earth, along with themselves, and everyone dies. The earth is then left to rot of what survives.

If you are religious - depending on your religion - Christ, or God (Lord) - will come back (The Second Coming) and judgementally send the faithful to his perfect heaven, and send the rest of you to hell with the Devil. Once each and every human is sent to their proper place, Christ will then destroy what's left of earth and humanity on earth as we know it.

If you are religious and a Christian, I've read two versions of what will happen:

1) Christ will come back and judge us accordingly of where we all go. He will then destroy the earth. And those who have already died before the Second Coming, will come back to life just to witness the Second Coming and go back again with Christ to heaven when the judgmental splitting of humans comes.

2) Christ will come back and, like the first version, judge us accordingly. However, just before the Second Coming, a Rapture will occur, where the saints and the faithful will be sent to the Lord - the rest stay put. Christ Lord will then come back and establish his Kingdom for 1,000 years, and the Devil will be banished so it can't corrupt us for those 1,000 years. Christ will then rule every corner of earth with the faithful during this period and the non-faithful to suffer, essentially.

Let the arguing begin.

Too much thinking, just enjoy life while we're still alive.

Well, item #2 totally contradicts Christian teaching. That is, God is forgiving. For item #1, can the planet hold ALL those people?? But I'm with dona83 on this one. Just enjoy it. I was convinced the world was going to end with the Y2K bug and spent half of 1998 and 1999 worrying myself. I'm sure God, Bhudda, the cosmic background, whoever it is will be nice to you if you fully are nice to people and to yourself. Just don't get a PC. Imagine, the last thing you see right before the world ends is that blue screen.

Exactly my reaction - I was even humming the song in my mind as I tried to make sense of Lars' post. Tragic.
