"In fact, a Reuters poll in 2012 found that nearly one in four Americans and one in seven worldwide believe the world will end during their lifetime. In the UK the figure was less than one in 12."

Yes, it is now climate change that will end civilization as we know it AND people are not having children because of this impending apocalypse. Fortunately my children aren't quite as idiotic and my 12 grandkids will be living in the great world of the future!

My dearest Anya,

It is not the end of the world if you live to see it. Only death can bring about el fin del mundo. Therefore, anyone wishing to "Immanentize the Eschaton" seeks death which is non-transcendent. So... Why? Is there more to living than just life?

Respectfully yours.
