Thank You, hope it will be fine

Hi GeniusIsBack;

Are you implying something? I have asked you nicely at least 3 times to modify or clean up your behaviour.

At least GIB is gone....
P.D.to be ontopic, maybe uhhhh.....like more than a billio years ago

It may not be possible to calculate the end of the earth but it is possible to calculate the end of GIB's existence.

Well, if all other prediction fail, there is always the approximate billion year prediction for when the Sun will start turning into a red giant.

That is the only way to really destroy the earth. The sun must run of hydrogen sooner or later and then it will expand and swallow up the earth.

Either that or a black hole.

None, that are close by as far as we know.

Of course if some race was sufficiently intelligent to gently nudge asteroids and was able to aim them they could pulverize the earth whenever they wanted to.

If you could measure the deceleration of the expansion of universe then you could predict the end of the world (Universe). Deceleration means the energy is exhausting and when the energy is not enough to sustain the expansion, the big crunch would occur. Maybe we couldn't even measure the retardation speed if the difference is so small or negligible to us but enough to roll back the universe. We are just tiny speck in this entire universe lets say there is imbalance in the universe and we got hit by VY Canis Majoris, this would be million times the end of the world. This is how big VY Canis Majoris compared to our earth http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ov5AHcCQtd8

And exactly where is all this energy going?

The energy is not going anywhere, the energy can't be destroyed

The earth would surely collide into the sun one day if both still existed

"The energy is not going anywhere, the energy can't be destroyed" Energy is conserved according to classical physics but not in the outer space because many strange things out there not to our comprehension. At t=0s before the big bang the universe had zero volume. Zero volume means nothing, so, no energy.

"And exactly where is all this energy going?" It is like a man lifting a 50kg weight and when he is running out of energy he would release it and the weight would hit the ground. Same with the universe, the energy is expanding the universe and once the energy is lacking the system has no resistance to hold them (Galaxies, stars etc) and they would collapse and hit each others. Or when the energy runs out we would have heat death of universe where the temperature reaches zero kelvin. Even if there is no big crunch with zero kelvin or -273C no living things would exist. So the end of the world is inevitable but when? But for sure when you die..it is the end of the world for you:) Does it really matter to know it when?

Then what triggered the bang?

### Re: Is It Possible To Calculate The End of The Earth's Existence!?

"Then what triggered the bang?" Most of us would stop here because none of us was there when it happened and it is beyond our mind to understand singularity. How could everything we had on earth were made from a tiny mass of zero volume and to make things even worse the stars, galaxies, etc also came from this same thing. We were compressed in a tiny space of zero volume in the beginning but this is what the science tells us. Ref: http://www.universeadventure.org/eras/era1-plankepoch.htm and for every birth there must be a death and this universe would have its death too. Maybe our world would be dead at the same time this universe died.
