We're doomed!

A doomsday scenario is a story of how we might meet our horrible end as a species, or even how the Earth might be destroyed. These range from the mythical, to the silly, to the paranoid, to the scientific.

Mythical[edit]

Silly[edit]

  • The alien overlords finally tire of anally probing us and vape the planet.
  • Intentional human extinction. (see: Voluntary Human Extinction Movement)
  • The Gays create an evil gay-turning robot that turns everyone GAY!
  • The colors of the rainbow grow so pretty in the sky they grain into the faces of all the people going by.
  • Someone will divide by zero. Luckily most calculators have safeguards against this and will display an error if you try it.
  • The Vogons actually do destroy earth for a Galactic freeway.
  • A planet-eating doomsday machineWikipedia's W.svg devours the Earth.
  • Priests in some lost Himalayan country complete writing down the 10,000 names of God.

Paranoid[edit]

  • The New World Order takes over, and finally tires of anally probing us and vapes the planet.
  • A "Camp of the Saints" scenario, from the novel by Jean Raspail, in which civilization collapses due to hordes of illegal immigrants.

Scientistic[edit]

Astronomical[edit]

Blogistical[edit]

  • A new virus/bacteria/parasite evolves and eliminates mankind (not exactly doomsday because life will go on. Also has to get around the fact that there exists an inverse relationship between ease of transfer and death rates percentage.)
  • Mass insanity: every person in the world goes insane (halfway there).
  • Ecosystem collapse, acid rain or some other environmental disaster destroys the biosphere.
  • Overpopulation: the sheer demand for resources launches a mass global war.
  • Evolution takes over, and humans become a new species. The human race would be "extinct", but our descendants would still be here.
