No one can ever say for sure what the future will bring, but a new video has summed up all the science-backed predictions that we can reasonably make about how Earth will change over the next 1 billion years, and our poor little brains are reeling.

As you may be able to tell, Christian conspiracy theorist David Meade's prediction that the world as we know it would come to an end this past Saturday was incorrect. Consequently, Meade, whose qualifications include writing books and, get this, writing things on a website, now states October 15 is definitely Doomsday.

Since the first nuclear test on 15 July 1945, there have been over 2,051 other nuclear weapons tests around the world. The device tested in 1945 had a 20 kiloton yield, meaning it had the explosive force of 20,000 tons of TNT.
Within 20 years, the US and USSR tested nuclear weapons larger than 10 megatons, or 10 million tons of TNT. For scale, these weapons were at least 500 times as strong as the first atomic bomb.
It's 50% fatal to those who contract it and there is no cure. The last line of antibiotic drugs have no effect on this bug whatsoever. Do you know those bargain pre-need mortuaries? Buy now and save.

This sounds like the beginning of a SciFi movie, doesn't it? But it's true. Three years after the Japanese nuclear meltdown at the TEPCO Fukushima Daiichi power plant, there is a population explosion of radioactive wild boars. This presents a serious problem beyond the radioactivity.

With Collapse: The End of Society simulator, you are patient zero in the plague that takes humanity down. Crank up 'Don't Fear The Reaper', answer a couple questions, and watch it all fall apart.
In about five billion years time, our sun will expand, engulfing our planet in fire - and killing anything that might live on the surface. But there's still a chance - however small - that humans might survive this cataclysm, fleeing our planet in spacecraft as our solar system dies. But what about the end that we CAN'T escape - the end of the universe itself? The one thing we know is that it's coming.

We're doomed according to scientists who tell us that our survival is based upon other living creatures that we depend upon. As these species perish, what will take their place in the ecosystem? We're our own executioners.

Noted cosmologist and physics professor Lawrence Krauss is of the opinion that our observations of dark matter have doomed the universe to a premature end. Heisenberg would no doubt agree.
