As we make predictions regarding the future, even the near future, we have to be extremely careful. It is no easy job.
Considering the Solar System of 10 elements and the time it took to calculate and predict its behavior, we can guss the scope.
It happens that such an expectation has been done in 1910 for the 20th Century by the french artist Villemard. It is
avaialble now in www and all you need to do is to click at the picture right.
It is easily seen then he was not expecting many things like radar, sonar etc. He does not seem to expect the great
consumption of the 20th century either; he was just out of a century of scarce resources. It is also seen that he could not expect 3G mobile communication. We could not expect in 1970 to 1985 either. This
should remind us the difficulty of making the predictions regarding such devices in about 620 A.C. The minor signs of end days can then hardly be man made predictions.
I do not expect any change of trend within this era.
Every country will try to grow and develope, the rich will be richer though a little bit less.
The poor will also be a litlle bit richer and the gap will widen though a decelerated widening.
China, India, Russia, Brazil and probably Turkey will be leaders of growth.
I do not expect any great war neglecting small civil struggles and small wars among unimportant countries. Almost
everybody knows that the war does not only kill humans but destroys assets also.
Humans are regenerable but destroyed assets not.
Soil will be pretty depleted and yield per acre will most probably be around today's values though scientific
Climatic conditions will not favor production in many of today's production regions.
Sea life will degrade due to environmental problems, contaminants.
Overall food production may be around today's values whereas the population will be around 9 billion.
Great wars will be inevitable, most probably inevitable.
Much asset will be lost due to wars. Some may recover but the life will certainly be hard. Very hard after a
relatively long period of prosperity. People will hardly cope with.
No need for much speculation, it seems to suffice to grasp the conditions we are in.
It seems that the thesis intelligent design should be favored. We seem to be designed and created. Not the whole
Universe but we seem to be created.
Created and quided to this point, to this situation.
Our Creater is certainly intelligent and mighty. Seeing that 4 billion years of history has passed for 200 years of
prosperity, seeing that our Creator has proven His patience, we may make speculations in the direction that we are expected to complete a mission.
Life after 2050 may not be as bad as depicted in the picture right. It is also to be expected that our Creator will
continue to keep His promises. Because He seems to have kept up to this point.
A second life should be expected. Nothing bad for the goods and intelligents among us. For the other we are to expect
our Creator's mercy.
Though it contains a good deal of fairy tales the Quran seems to have described the creation of the Earth compatibly
with science. It may then be expected to describe the doom also.
The description it gives is given below (75/7 to 75/9):
"When the sight is dazed.
And the moon is buried in darkness.
And the sun and moon are joined together."
The last two seem to describe a solar eclipse. We may probably speculate that the primitive men played bongo drums due to some kind of hidden knowledge
of the doom. Just a speculation but it may be.
The sight will be dazzled or confounded or glared. If the sight is supposed to be glared and dazzled in spite of a solar eclipse, the cause may well be
extreme luminousity due to arriving radiation of a supernova explosion.
Assuming that the doom is expected during a solar eclipse is not enough to make right and precise guesses. We need
additional information if possible.
In islam there is a belief that the doom will be during a sunset. This is why the 4th prayer of the day is performed in
a hurry. It is done globally so not taking into account that sunset depends on longitude.
If we assume in addition that sunset will be sunset of Mecca (40° E), then the Sun will be approximately over 50°
W (approximately, Sao Paulo, Brasil) .
The map below is taken from NASA web site. It is clickable. Shows total and annular solar eclipse paths between 2060 and
It is my estimate that one of them may be the time of the promised doom. The Earth will then have a good deal of cosmic
(supernova explosion) radiation from a very dangerous line where magma is almost at surface.
