Top Ten Most Possible Causes to the End of the World

This may look weird. What's waiting for us at the end of the line?
The Top Ten
1 World Wide War

This, known as World War III will be the possible cause to the end of the world. I hope this should never happen. Why would us, humans fight each other every day? I hope world peace will happen, but I don't think it would ever happen. When WWIII starts, countries will launch TONS of nuclear bombs on each other, a large number of fires will occur, the air will be polluted, the internet and telecommunications will stop working, there will be a huge economic crisis, the temperature will heavily drop and become very cold, there will be no sunlight, acid will be raining instead of water, food production collapses, and billions of people will die. Let's all hope that this will never happen.

I have a bad feeling that World War III may cause the end of Earth, especially since every country on this Earth has Nukes that can kill more than a million people. What's scarier is that WWIII is right around the corner.

How it could happen: Trump decides it is a great idea to nuke Russia. People start picking sides, UN gets TO'd and then everything pretty much just goes boom.

This definitely could be the case, knowing that we have enough nuclear warheads to wipe out our species three times over.

2 Nuclear War

Nuclear weapons will blow everyone to pieces and quite frankly if it doesn't we will die of radeoactive poisoning, starvation, dehydration, lack of resources or deppression. So we may not die as a cause of WW3 but it could be an aftershock or effect of the actions.

With nukes destrooying all the countries, the world will start to end. I actually think were close to the end because of the rumors of WW3, but the bible sais no one knows except God.

We will probably die because of WW3. Chia and North Korea have all those nukes. And Iran is verry powerful. No dout that US will loose. I hope we don't though.

I feel like Trump will start this.

3 Disease

If all diseases were to somehow combine together, they would become unstoppable, no cure, we all dead.

There is an Ebola outbreak in Africa right now... Feel so sorry for anyone who ever gets Ebola.

Well its already spread to America. It could spread anywhere now...

This would only happen if Ebola and the common cold were mixed.

4 Pollution, Leading to a Greenhouse Effect

Yeah, I agree with pollution because I'm writing a speech and pollution is my main point. Thanks thetoptens
Sincerly :
Ali mustafa

Well it might be in 4027 so maybe the world never ends but this is correct.

The should-be number one in the list. Go solar panels... If you can. Good luck

The pollution will not only kill us, but the animals and the climate

5 Asteroid

An asteroid could strike Earth at any time and totally obliterate it.

This list is scary, I hope they will hitting in this years.

6 Massive Super-volcano Eruption

This could happen, many eruption that caused a lot of lives, especially in Indonesia. Over 1 million lives have ended because of eruption s on Indonesia. The worst could end humankind. Be prepared to survive!

Yellowknife should be destroyed before it erupts... which might not be THAT long. Could be several years. Glad I live in Canada. We wont be hit as bad. So Americans should flee to either Canada of Mexico.

Yellowstone national park... A ticking time bomb... That could go off at anytime... In an hour, a couple of minutes, maybe days or years... Whatever the time... The USA is doomed, full stop.

Would cause more pollution than all of mankind's history combined...

7 Global Warming Apocalypse

Whole countries, such as Bangladesh, Denmark, Netherlands, and Tuvalu could be flooded pretty soon. Millions would be killed or displaced.

8 Black Hole

I read that you wouldn't even feel yourself being stretched apart... I'm not really sure if that's true. I wonder. Just hope the world doesn't end when I am here or my kids are on this planet. Even though I'm not even that old yet, just because I planned that...

The closest black hole is at the center of our galaxy. Plus, it will take at LEAST one million years to get halfway as close to it as we are now.

9 Zombie Apocalypse

There's no way this will ever happen. There has been NO disaster similar to this one at all. Zombies are fictional creatures and the word was created in 1819. The only reason why you are worried about it is because of horror movies and books such as Night of the Living Dead. If zombies never existed, then you wouldn't understand what is a "zombie apocalypse". Things from fictional books, movies and television aren't going to happen in real life.

The only reason ANY of you say that you "know" it will happen, no you don't. The only reason you say that is because of movies. If there had never been books or movies about them, you guys wouldn't even know what this is, therefore, you would "know" this won't happen. The only reason you think this will happen is because of movies. Just because you saw a movie of them doesn't mean it will happen in real life.

Think about it. There could be a graveyard really close to a radiation plant. Radiation+dead bodies=zombies. It WILL happen, and I'm going to be prepared. Like this comment if you will too.

Yes! I love all you commenters for agreeing with me! Scientists trying to find cures, enhanced diseases, certain bug bites, radiation plants and genetic engineering could lead to this! I'm getting prepared!

10 Depleting Earth's Resources

This is the closest thing to happening. This would completely destroy the world. We wouldn't be able to enter space anyway because we would have no food or metal to make a spacecraft. This will gave us a slow and painful end, unlike a black hole.

This actually could happen very soon.

The Contenders
11 Time Stops

If this really happens, I think the government will allow killings. Just think of it. Without time, no one will age. Meaning, the number of deaths will be reduced significantly and when this planet became overpopulated, perhaps the government will result to massive genocides just to reduce the number of humans. The powerful rich people will surely find a way to stay alive while those who're poor will suffer.

If time stops... Then we're all invincible. Time ending would not kill anyone nor would it even pause anyone. You wouldn't age though. You would live forever

You realize the list title said possible right?

Well if time stops, we won't be able to think.

12 Solar Flares

It can happen!

13 Sun Explodes

The sun won't explode as a supernova. It's not massive enough. It will have to turn into a red giant first, which it will, and this would result in the Earth becoming a Mercury-like planet before it's finally swallowed by the sun.
However, you don't need to worry about that (Even though it is inevitable if the Earth is still there somehow) because it won't be for another 5 billion years.

Actually, our sun is estimated to be one of the largest.

14 Massive Solar Eruption

Solar flares are the most are the logical 2012.

15 Collision Between Our Galaxy and the Andromeda Galaxy

There will be no dang explosion unless Andromeda is composed of antimatter. According to a documentary I watched, the systems and planets would get flinged around the place. Basically saying, Earth could be a single planet floating in space.

Whoever put this up here clearly knows nothing about astronomy. When the Milky Way and the Andromedy combine in a million years: The result will be a galaxy that is bigger and have a different name. There will be no explosion or destruction of ANYTHING within 100,000 light years.

Notably: Would not explode. They would merge and form a bigger galaxy. We would have no ill effects.

Nothing will happen! Whoever wrote this knows nothing about science!

16 Jesus' 2nd Coming

It's possible that there may never be a second coming of Jesus, but I don't know what's going to happen to the world when this occurs. Someone will be God's grandson and Jesus' son.

17 Christian Rapture and Tribulation

This will be the one that happens. The 7 year period will cause rapid death, and annihilation of nearly 75% of what was left after the rapture. Some of the disasters humans will face at this time include:

The sun burning all humans alive
All Water dying and replaced with blood
A terrible earthquake worse than all others combined...
Along with 100 lb Hailstones to destroy everything
And for those who worship the devil, they will break out in cancerous sores.

True! It is more likely that the Antichrist will set up abomination than for Yellowstone to erupt because the world can't end before the Rapture or Second Coming.

That will be #1 because it's the ultimate cause.

18 Robot Apocalypse

Definitely robopocalypse. I mean, we already have robots reading our vows to us in Japan! How much longer before they refuse to run our Google engines?! Scientists, SLOW DOWN.

I hate robots

19 Alien Invasion
20 Massive Earthquakes
21 Comet
22 Poisoned Water

No water, no ecosystem. Learn to eat rocks...

23 Fall Out of Orbit

This is inevitable in five billion years when the sun dies and "eats" it.

24 Big Red Giant

The Sun is supposed to engulf all the inner planets in billions of years.
