I have had the conversation with friends on when the end of the world will come sveral times and usually it is when most of them are intoxicated. We ask ourselves wether it will really be 2012 or is that number just a figment of someone’s very active imagination.
Well according to Ipsos Global Public Affairs who conducted a poll for Reuters, nearly 15% of people worldwide really believe the world will end during their lifetime and 10% agree with the Mayan calander that the world will end this year!
Responses to the international poll of 16,262 people in more than 20 countries varied widely with only six percent of French residents believing in an impending Armageddon in their lifetime, compared to 22 percent in Turkey and the United States and slightly less in South Africa and Argentina.
But only seven percent in Belgium and eight percent in Great Britain feared an end to the world during their lives.
About one in 10 people globally also said they were experiencing fear or anxiety about the impending end of the world in 2012. The greatest numbers were in Russia and Poland, the fewest in Great Britain.
Ipsos questioned people in China, Turkey, Russia, Mexico, South Korea, Japan, the United States, Argentina, Hungary, Poland, Sweden, France, Spain, Belgium, Canada, Australia, Italy, South Africa, Great Britain, Indonesia, Germany.
Only one African country in the poll ha?
So what do you think ? when do you expect the end of us to be?
