Clearly the world, our globe, will cease to exist or be destroyed
some time in the next 100,000 years. That is a scientific
Over the past two millennia, there have been thousands of
predictions made about the end of the world. The majority are
based on interpretations of the Bible. They typically predict an
event to occur at a specific date in the future, that would
completely change the world. Some of the more notable cases, predict
that most or all life on Earth will be wiped out.
"About the time of the end, a body of men will be
raised up who will turn their attention to the prophecies,
and insist upon their literal interpretation, in the midst
of much clamor and opposition." Sir Isaac Newton
mathematician, physicist (1643-1727 AD) who,
himself, predicted that the end of the world will occur in
So far, all predictions have failed to come to pass. We expect more
predictions, and more failures, to continue on into the forseeable
Let us address these Bible-based prophecies:
It is the result of an error in translation. The Bible texts are not speaking of
the end of the world, but the end of an age. The word world is
translated from one of these two Greek words: either
kosmos, or aeon.
Kosmos means the system of things, how society is ordered .
Aeon means an age, a period of time.
Neither means the planet we live on. When they were speaking of the
globe, the land on which we live, they used the word gae.
That word was never used in these prophecies.
For thousands of years astrologers have known that there are ages, periods of time of about
2000 years. The end-of-the-world prophecies always coincided with the end of one
age and beginning of the next one, the cusp. For example: 7 BC-30 AD and 1981-2012.
All the Bible prophecies were referring to the first cusp period
2000 years ago. They
had some interesting ideas as to what would happen. But that is the
time period they were referring to. This is especially clear in the 24th
chapter of Matthew, where Jesus is explaining what would happen as
the world (aeon) would end. And all those things occurred. But the
world (gae) did not end.
Science tells us that the world
WILL come to an end. several million years from now. There
will be "earthquakes, wars and rumors of wars" but the Earth
will abide for many millenia to come

intelligible to those who are properly instructed." Blaise
