11 Ways The World Could End
Since the 1500s, there have been more than150 documented predictions of when the world is going to end. Luckily for us, none of themhave come trueâ€¦yet. However, you'll be surprised that not allof them are destructive. Here are some terrifyingly amazing ways theworld, genuinely could end. When you think of scientists working on superviruses, you probably picture Hazmat workers, deep in a mountain bunker, studying vats fullof insidious green liquid. But these labs do actually exist! Maybe notworking for some shady Bondstyle villain looking to ransom the world away to the highestbidder, but for pharmaceutical companies and
government agencies studying ways to curedangerous pathogens. But what happens when a vial full of an extremely dangerous virusbreaks out of containment, or is misplacedé Over the years, there have been numerous documentedcases of dangerous viruses escaping from laboratories around the world. One of these happened asrecently as 2009. A group of scientists based in Europe, workingwith Baxter Pharmaceuticals, were conducting lab tests on a seasonal flu strain.Without realizing it, Baxter had sent them live supplies of the H5N1 virus, better knownas â€œbird flu,â€� which has a mortality rate higher than 60%. One of the world's deadliestviruses was handled and distributed to three
other labs without any pathogen safety protocolsin place. The grave error was only realized when onelab worker in the Czech Republic inoculated a group of ferrets with samples of the â€œseasonfluâ€� batch, and was horrified when they all died.The scientists were immediately placed under quarantine and monitored for signs of thedeadly virus. Luckily, none of them were infected and all the scientists were freed with a cleanbill of health. Two years later, these same strains of avianand human flu were combined in a laboratory, successfully creating â€œthe most dangerousvirus in history.â€� The virus was highly
pathogenic, while retaining its dangerouslyhigh fatality rate. If it got loose, it could kill 60% of the world's population in afreakishly short amount of time â€“ a truly apocalyptic notion.Some say it's only a matter of time before this kind of virus escapes containment andwreaks havoc on mankind. After going through two world wars, you wouldthink that the world would have learned to get along by now. But unfortunately for thesurvival of humanity, we are constantly under threat of triggering the final war â€“ NuclearArmageddon. Mutually Assured Destruction, like its acronymsuggests, is one of the maddest doctrines
ever devised. It ensures that if a countrywere to ever use a nuclear weapon on another state with the same capability, both sideswould unleash their entire nuclear arsenal, bringing about the complete annihilation ofboth countries. With the resulting nuclear winter, and the likely participation of othercountries in the exchange, this would almost certainly lead to destruction and death onan apocalyptic scale. There are over 15,000 nuclear warheads inthe world, with more than 4000 ready to fire at any one time. That would make one hellof a firework show, but probably not one you'd want to be around to watch.There have been a few â€œclose callsâ€� since
we first developed nuclear weapons. A surprisingnumber of these were technical glitches that nearly started World War 3, on both sidesof the Cold War. The average yield of a modern nuclear weaponis around 500 kilotons of TNT, that's 25 times more powerful than the bomb droppedon Nagasaki. Each one of these 500 kiloton bombs are powerful enough to flatten hugeparts of a large modern city such as New York, or London.And there exists some truly unimaginably powerful weapons, like the Tsar Bomba, which had ayield of more than 50 megatonnes. That's two and a half THOUSAND times more powerfulthan the one dropped on Nagasaki. Thankfully
PETE WATTS: Well, the number666 is pretty famous, or I suppose you couldsay infamous. 666 is called the numberof the beast. And the reason that the number666 has become infamous is not just because it's somekind of nice number. It has got a lot of interestingmathematical properties.
JAMES GRIME: Perhapsdisappointingly, mathematically 666 not that special. PETE WATTS: But it's famousbecause of its use in the Bible, where it is thenumber of the beast. Let me read the relevantpassage. JAMES GRIME: The one thing thatI do know where it turns up is in the game of roulette.
So roulette here's a roulette table. This is the Monte Carloroulette table. PETE WATTS: quot;Let him who hasunderstanding reckon the number of the beast, forit is a human number. Its number is 666.quot; JAMES GRIME: There's an Americanroulette table as well, which is slightlydifferent.
The American table has a 0 anda 00, whereas the Monte Carlo roulette table justhas the one 0. PETE WATTS: The New Testamentthe Bible wasn't written in English. This is just a translation. So in the original Greekmanuscripts, the number is actually written asthree letters. The Greeks didn't have symbolsfor writing numbers.
They use letters instead. It's the same as if in English,we had to use the letter A for one, the letterB for two, and so on. Greek is like this. It uses letters to representnumbers. Hebrew is like this. Letters are used torepresent numbers. And those are the two mainlanguages of the Bible.
JAMES GRIME: So all roulettetables, though, use the numbers 1 to 36. So here, the Monte Carloroulette table has 37 slots 0, 1, 2, 3, up to 36. PETE WATTS: So alpha, the firstletter of the Greek alphabet representsthe number one. Beta, the second letter,represents number two. Gamma, the third letter,represents number three.
Jesus Warns All To Stop Sinning
Jesus wants all people to love and followhim. He wants all people to stop sinning. He wants all people to praise his name andhonour his name. He wants all people to stop being mean to each other. He wants all peopleto stop gossiping, stop lying, cheating, stealing.When we as Christians condone sin, we directlydisobey Jesus and he will be severely displeased with those who do this, and they will haveno excuse at all.
