First I would like to explain the rules for this debate. each person will have 3 days to post. a very good amount of time to find anything they need to fight his/her argument.

secondly, lets define Apocalypse, shall we?

[Definition]#1 Great or total devastation; doom: the apocalypse of nuclear war.
#2 A prophetic disclosure; a revelation.
Thus meaning that humans do not need to be killed off for an Apocalypse to happen, and in no way am I saying(if humans are killed off) nothing else will be living. I'm talking strictly one group of something(IE: humans, life, insects, or anything split into one solid grouping, hopefully to the smallest classification available such as humans and not something as big as all primates catch my drift)

You defined apocalypse, that is fine...

But "The" apocalypse is what loses you this. There are many many scenarios in which great devastation occurs, in which something dies. To say "The" apocalypse will happen implies it will be the only one. "An" apocalypse will probably happen within just about any lifetime, there are quadrillions of stars out there, a significant number of which have planets on them, many of which no doubt (statistically speaking) have life on them , many of which probably lose that life at any given time. And if you speak of the smallest classification available, it is not humans, it is an individual. Individuals die all the time, for them, this is great devastation, indeed, for them, it is total devastation. Thus, there are many, many, apocalypses, therefore, there can be no "The" apocalypse, therefore, "The" apocalypse cannot occur.

sad that valexin isn't doing anything, this could be a fun debate, although "lifetime" is an interesting time range. Who's lifetime?

This is a pointless debate- mindless and purposeless metaphysics- it is unknowable- researchable- unverifiable, ect ect. To be able to accept that such an event like apocalypse is going to occur soon, we must take a leap of faith- like believing in trolls.

I cast semanticaga on "this life time" to make it mean within my great grandfather's life time, thus, "this life time" means within 2 years.
