Ah great...I guess I'll try to wrap this one up quick before the religious zealots go nuts with their reasonings. The answer is simply no. Technology has evolved so well that we are capable of hearing news of a disaster within minutes. Because we're now so well connected around the world, we know exactly what's going on. We have so many trained specialists on these matters that it's impressive how much we know about our planet now. Simply put, more seems to be happening because we are tracking everything by-the-minute on this globe. It has always been like this, just without the tech in the past.
Example-
If you were to live 100 years ago on some farm in Alabama and a devastating earthquake hit some rural part of China, chances are you and the rest of Alabama would never hear of it happening in your lifetime.

Even studying hot-zones of earthquakes and disasters in general has remained at a steady pace throughout human history. Once in a while you'll get a huge one though. But that's our world for ya! Always burping and farting. To further your knowledge, check this out-- http://wattsupwiththat.com/2008/07/05/going-down-death-rates-due-to-extreme-weather-events/

So don't worry. We're doing pretty good in the grand scheme of things. Don't let these vague apocalyptic stories like the Mayan calender scare you-- keep it real. My only recommendation is to help those that have been effected by these disasters. Use technology! Donate or something! Hope this helps.  ;)

Yes.....and no..........maybe?..........Just the earth's very own crowd-control at work again, all dogs have fleas that are easy enough to scratch!!!!!! When it stops???? Never, nature is a constantly evolving thing, so sit back,  relax, and enjoy the pyroclastic flow, or....

RUN FOR YOUR LIVES, OH SH@! WHERE ALL GONNA DIE!!! AHHHHH-AHHH-AHHAHHHHAHAHA!

Just kidding about the running part-Unless it actually comes down to it!!!!!

ps Should the end of the world be made into a holiday ahead of time just in case we have some survivors and then the holiday of rememberance  of the end of the world would already be set up for them!?!!?!?!?!?!?!?!? Whoa!!! Longest sentence ever!! Exhausted! Babbling!!! Must stop typing and sleep.....
  :dontknow: :BangHead: :angry7:
Better quit while I am ahead...Hope I made you laugh, though-
Good night everybody!!!!

If it is there's nothing we can do about it.  So sit back, relax, and enjoy the show.

There's plenty we could do about any realistic scenario. Don't you feel this viewpoint is a tad bit hedonistic?

Well I was just commenting on the matter of the first post. But you make a decent point-- let's just keep the extremists in this world under the foot.  :peace:

I think it takes two idiots to push the wrong button.

Honestly I think that the world has been coming to an end for a long time now. Nothing lasts forever. But I will not let that keep me from living day by day and being happy with my life.

The realistic scenario here is earthquakes.  We can prepare for them as best we can, but we can't stop them.  That's my point. Being prepared for natural disasters is one thing, sitting around worrying about the world coming to an end is another.  Certain things are beyond our control.

someone's been watching too many Batman movies if they think they can stop an earthquake!!

Where did batman come into this picture? I was unaware batman could stop earthquakes.

You're right...sorry for not going further into detail on my part. Most NDisasters are unavoidable, but atleast we can prepare for them so we aren't stipped of our infrastructure and forced into extinction. We can aid eachother incase it happens also due to our tech. I studied desertification and weak-insecticide products a while ago and it scares me a lot more than most major Ndisasters do (one could argue that these 2 are controllable disasters). To think we'll have massive food-shortages around the globe if we can't spread the information on how to stop it. It's all about getting the info around so we can continue thriving.

Well...yeah. I imagine the first societies thought the same thing and had their own predictions. The world is coming to an end...just ridiculously slowly. The world (as in the globe) won't be ending anytime soon. Atleast until our sun goes supernova or something.

THAT'S THE WAY YA DEWWWWIT!

Everything comes to an end. It's only a question of when.
