How will the universe end? "Not with a bang but with a whimper," wrote the American poet T.S. Eliot regarding the end of the world.

Our planet Earth has extinguished large portions of its inhabitants several times since the dawn of animals. And if science tells us anything, it will surely try to kill us all again.

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.

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.

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.
