i was mocking, sorry about that. a programme reference to that was shown in the uk some time back on tv. it's the scaremongering that we seem to get these days i'm afraid. they say it may well happen in a thousand years time, only if it isn't that it's something else.it's these people running around with their little picks trying to drum up stories. the thing with me is that i never mock fate, but the other guy you refer to is even worse than the geologists. you can count on someone putting events to words in the bible(which was written by man) again to put the fear of christ up us (pun not meant). it amazes me how people concoct things up that will happen in our lifetime, strewth! "the end of the world is nigh". i totally believe what 'corinthian' say's, that the end will be when the sun exhaust itself, and expands into oblivion, cheers, tomi.
