This world will end and unless it does so in accordance with such scientific projections as the burn-out of the sun, won't those who who find the prophets of doom so laughable be in for a rude awakening?
That is true in an absolute sense, but I find it laughable that with the couple thousand years since Revelations was written people think the world will end during their 75 year or so lifetime. Myself, I think it is a long time to come. And, to which prophets of doom should we listen? It falls into the category of one of those things I can't possibly know .
