• Prince sang about the destruction of the human race in his 80's song Purple Rain. I.e: "When there's blood in the sky – red and blue = purple... purple rain pertains to the end of the world and being with the one you love and letting your faith/God guide you through the purple rain." Anything is possible when you hear about crazy dictators.

      Ironically purple has been the colour of Royalty since the Phoenicians, originally the colour was made by predatory sea snails.

      I'm sure the color purple and the mystery it represents is associated with Royalty. Prince's eldest sibling by the name of Sharon Nelson said that Prince loved purple, because it made him feel Princely.

      Interesting that the colors used to make purple are the ones used to denote America's political parties. And looking at what's going on in that corner of the room, it's almost believable that they'd be the ones to trigger a worldwide catastrophe.

      1465, America is in turmoil. Some believe it is in decline. Few argue whether the decline is temporary or permanent.
  • A superbug that is drug resistant. No I don't think it will happen in my lifetime, the population will continue to be controlled by war, poverty, disease, poor diet, pollution, and too much RF radiation in the environment.
  • Artificial Intelligence
  • The end of the planet, humans are just too tenacious otherwise.
  • So many possibilities: Space aliens, plague, nuclear war, comets, etc. Actually, I doubt any of those would kill the last human, but any of those might kill off enough humans to reset our thousands of years of civilized culture. Overpopulation is a concern in some places already, but will continue to spread for the next several decades. And the more crowded people are, the more prone to disease. Terrorism is above its own critical mass to self-perpetuate now. The longer that phenomenon goes unchecked, the more likely some bad people will get ahold of some bad things to cause mass destruction. And the more technology we obtain, the more information the Earth hemorrhages out into space, and the more likely it is that extra-terrestrials will find us. If those beings have technology to get them here, then they probably also have technology to destroy us. Who knows, maybe this message will be the first thing they see, if they aren't already on their way.

  • a pandemic
  • A - the Sun exploding - B - a huge meteor strike - C - total nuclear devastation * * * I don't expect any of these during my lifetime (funny, we all thought it was practically certain during the Cold War), but I expect the meteor thing sometime in the next few thousand years. See: the orbit of the solar system around the galaxy, how past life-ending meteor strikes have coincided with our solar system passing through the galactic plane (where, presumably, there is a lot more "stuff" that can smack into our planet). Our solar system is about begin passing through the galactic plane again...
  • Democrats are working diligently on the answer.
  • a huge asteroid ought to do it.
