 This question was put to the head of Zoology department of the University of Johannesburg South Africa, “Wіll humаn сіvіlіsаtіоn mаnаgе tо stаvе оff the 82 years predicted doomsday?

His answer was, Νо, wе wоn’t, іn fасt whаtеvеr рlаns уоu mіght hаvе hаd, bеуоnd 2029, іе. 10 уеаrs, frоm nоw, thеу wоn’t hарреn ассоrdіng tо this сhіеf sсіеntіst оf thе dераrtmеnt оf Zoology, Рrоfеssоr Frаnсоіs Durаnd аnd hіs tеаm оf scientific  environmental experts frоm thе Unіvеrsіtу оf Јоhаnnеsburg Ѕоuth-Аfrіса.

20 Points


  1. The current situation reminds me of what happens to fish in case of water pollution.
    Nature aims for balance, excess leads to destruction. It’s a pity we’re facing this fate but it’s for good. We preferred evolving our comfort instead of ourselves.

    Some Eve-ish selection must have already been going on, it explains the recent extremist misogynistic trends of “red pills” and “black pills”. ?

    • Agreed! I wrote this and I heard Professor Durand tell the radio announcer that everything ends in about 10 years time. He is not an alarmist and realises how some people were going to respond and in spite of this, when she phoned him the day after the interview, he said that he is in the same situation and has young children who will not grow into adulthood.

    • Many disasters have occurred throughout the 450 Billion years of earth’s existence, which were not averted by the super GOD and naturally he knows all about everything, the only problem is, he never shares that information with us. As an example, a Tsunami slams into a beach at Phuket and kills 20,000 people, including many babies. But the same God, (whom I deeply believe in, by the way) will send another person with a liter of milk to a family of strangers with a newborn baby that is starving. That is the part that is hard to understand.

      • One may further ask “Why does God allow suffering”? the fact is that God has made natural laws which effect this world, for instance, cause and effect, action and reaction. The majority of suffering is due to the reaction to some action, but God can intervene and prevent the effect, the reaction. But as suffering is also a sort of trial for testing mankind on how they react; therefore, if we remain steadfast and put our full trust in God then we will get closer to God. On the other hand, if we curse and blame God for our loss, then we have lost this trial and moved further away from God. So if God took away suffering, then He would take away our ability to develop and grow. In this way, some natural disasters must happen and God will not prevent them.

        • Have to interrupt here if you don’t mind. Don’t usually do this but I read this part of your response Hina….”God can intervene and prevent the effect, the reaction”

          Answer me this, why did God not intervene when my child took his life?

          • Dear Carol, I can really imagine you grief.A mother can’t forget her loved one. I also have been suffered in this condition. Life and death is a universal thurth,it’s in hand of GOD.Everyone know later or sooner about death why does a mother give birth a child.God knows very well, when does he intervence and prevent the effect.
            Besides all these negative things, we also see beauty, health, prosperity, life, birth, wisdom, intelligence, growth and progress. We also see goodness among people, faith, sincerity, charity, love and the spirit of sacrifice. We also see a lot of virtue and piety. It is wrong to see one side of the coin and not to see the other side. Any philosophy that concentrates on one aspect of the creation and denies or ignores the other side is partially true and partial truths are no truth at all.
            First of all, God did not make this world a permanent world. This is a temporary world and everything here has a time limit. When its times comes it will die, come to an end and finish. Neither the good things of this world are forever, nor the bad things eternal. We are here for a short time and we are being tested. Those who will pass this test will find an eternal world that is perfect and permanent.

            Prophet ‘Isa (Jesus), peace be upon him, is also reported to have said something similar. (See Matthew 25: 35-45)

            So to summarize, we can say that sufferings occur to teach us that we must adhere to God’s natural and moral laws. It is sometimes to punish those who violate God’s natural or moral laws. It is to test our faith in God and to test our commitment to human values and charity. Whenever we encounter suffering we should ask ourselves, “Have we broken any law of God?” Let us study the cause of the problem and use the corrective methods. “Could it be a punishment?” Let us repent and ask forgiveness and reform our ways. “Could it be a test and trial for us?” Let us work hard to pass this test.

            Believers face the sufferings with prayers, repentance and good deeds.

            May God keep us on the right path, Amen!

    • An accurate observation as usual, thank you, and ofcourse John, you would be correct, however, I’m loosely applying a technique called parallax, which is a displacement or difference in the apparent or obvious position of an object or topic, viewed along two different lines of sight or insight, and is measured by the angle or semi-angle of inclination between two lines or points of view.
