Scientists have calculated when the world will end for humans.

It will be October 31, 2,252,006 - more than two-and-a-quarter million years away.

European geologists and palaeontologists came up with the date after studying 22million years-worth of fossils from Spain.

The team confirmed that mammal species have an average lifespan of 2.5 million years. Modern man has already been around for 250,000 years.

The team led by Jan Van Dam, of Utrecht University, discovered every 2.5 million years there is a blip in the Earth's orbit caused by astronomical influences.

This prevents the Earth getting as close to the sun as needed triggering cooling on a huge scale.

According to Nature Journal, the resulting ice age would wipe out human life.

Notice what the date. October 31

Wow, that's a little bit too specific.  Maybe they have the people who know when milk expires helping them to pinpoint the date in which we're all going down.

These scientists are off by about 2,251,000 years.  Most people will be gone within 20 years.  The rest will be gone within 1020 years.



huh?  now that dr. gadget said this i'm worried. 
 
and the mayan calendar thing, isn't that just supposed to be some cool astronomy thing in the sky?

scientists sure can be the smartest idiots.

scientists can't even agree on how long the sun will last. I've seen some say it'll end its life as a red giant at 3 billion years, when it's fully burned the majority of its resources that help it become so big, and it'll die down to a white dwarf... but then again I've seen sources that say that'll happen in 22 billion years.

Just like the mismatching of billions of years for how old things are.

Bottom line? Unless it's recorded by humans through recordkeeping, you simply can't put any trust into any date range over 5000 years a scientist mentions.

hmm thats good to know. But what really intruges me is the moder human has only been around for 250,000 years. That may seem like a lot but if you compare its really not

The world will end when it ends. No one will ever be able to anticipate when it will happen. It could happen tomorrow or it could happen in an hour's time. Everything you hear in these stupid "end of the world" theories is just a load of crap.
