Y2K, killer bees, herpes, AIDS, global cooling, mass famine....

Not necessarily in this order, but all scary things and, as it happens, things that didn't end the world though they were predicted to be the end of civilization.

Remember how planes were going to fall out of the sky at the stroke of midnight 2000? And there was another scary thing right about that time, too. Can't remember exactly what it was but this fella I know had a hand pump put in over his well and told me I better have a secret code to give him if I was going to visit after 2000 because no one was getting past his shotgun on Terror Night.

Well I mean the guy really isn't nuts. Really. He has a family, job... He isn't in a union.

And of course you all remember Paul Ehrlich who I believe recommended we adopt euthanasia to get rid of the parasitic people who were going to get all our FOOD. No way could the earth support a population of a billion! There wasn't enough sheer space.

Oh let's see: What's-his-name the ocean explorer said there would be no more life in the ocean by 1990.

Oprah said we would all die of AIDS and then the remainder would die of Mad Cow Disease.

Al Gore said... Oh Lord. Save me.... What hasn't he said. Man, he is so spooky.

You know all of this stuff is based on one premise: That man controls nature. Put aside, for a moment, the notion of God. Stand out in a Spring thunderstorm. 'Nuff said.

It is the utmost folly to think that we could be in control of nature & even God.
This earth has endured all manner of mayhem and chaos and yet keeps chugging along.
These theories are just meant to sap the will and ambition out of the look to government and science for answers and lacking that, just wait to die.
I know...I once believed their foolish lies. I hate these people with the white hot intensity of a thousand suns.

I think the author of Chicken Little and the sky is falling story should sue for plagarism.

So many people run around in circles screaming about the latest doomsday fad, yet never believe the real threat we are facing from Islamic terrorists.
