Or as T.S. Eliot wrote in "The Hollow Men," a poem first published in 1925: "This is the way the world ends / This is the way the world ends / This is the way the world ends / Not with a bang but a whimper." Ever wonder how it will all come to a close? What doomsday will look like? Thu, 11 Jul 2013 18:56:35 +0000 Rich Fisher 42574 at http://publicradiotulsa.org "How Humans Will Survive a Mass Extinction"
