Ever since Apocalypse week on the History Channel over winter break (because I had to watch every show aired), my daughter has been obsessing over the end of the world. She is convinced it will end this year, December 21st, 2012, to be precise. I’ve tried to explain to her that nuts have been predicting the end of the world since I was her age (and in fact even longer) but she is still very worried about it.
I probably made a mistake when I tried using logic to calm her mind about the end of the world. I explained that if the world did end it wouldn’t matter because we wouldn’t be here to know. She didn’t understand it, no surprise there, and only became more frightened.
Anyway, I stumbled across this infographic depicting many different theories to how the world will end. I’m not sure I will have my daughter read it but I found it amusing.
