here is a condensed version of what i believe. much as the earth appears flat to a person on the surface, the universe appears to be flat to scientists. but just as the earth is a sphere, so is the universe. it is as a bubble in a tub of bubble bath. in that tub there are many other bubbles that are each their own universe. universes pop into existence and out of existence much as the bubbles expand, then explode and disappear.

The universe we live in is extremely large, but if you are paying any attention to the most recent scientific discoveries, our universe is folding in upon itself. This doesn't mean it's going to happen tomorrow. No educated guess can predict when it will end, at least several thousand years from now. Are you paying any attention to the fact that our earth has shifted on its axis?

yeah, i've been watching. it takes 28 thousand years for it to wobble one complete time.

I am an ametuer at best when it comes to astrology, I became interested in the subject in the early 70's. I am interested in the positioning of the sun, moon and stars during the different seasons of the year. In a purely ametuer view, I have been tracking the sun over the past 20 years from the same stationary position. I have noted that the sun has been rising 5 to 6 degrees farther north than it was 20 years ago. Thus my point is the earth is shifting. Just my view.

it might be an error in your measurements.

precession is explained at the wikipedia page-> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Precession_ (astronomy)

Chandler Wobble
Scientists have confirmed that weather makes the planet wobble on its axis after exploiting a rare opportunity to detect and measure the most subtle shifts in the Earth's spin.

The wobbling at the poles was in the order of centimetres, from the size of a 25 cent piece to the size of a DVD, says astronomer Thomas Johnson of the US Naval Observatory.

"These loops are on the order of two or three days," says Johnson of the timeframe in which weather tugs and varies the direction Earth's axis is pointed in space.

No one knows. For all we know there could be a giant wall on the outside of the universe

The universe ends when we end.

Unless there is some sort of after-life, of a non-material nature.

I hope not, just because of all the hateful people that rely on it.
Scoring eternal non-existence would be pretty sweet, compared to an eternity of suffering fools.

Heaven could be worse than jr. high-school.
None of your friends will be there.
Judgmental church-ladies run heaven...and they don't allow much fun.

I was taught that my dog couldn't come.
(I lost interest in the concept, shortly after that revelation.)

Pull up the 1962 twilight zone episode "the hunt"
Not only can your dog go to heaven, you would be wise to have a companion that perceptive.
