With respects to Zager & Evans...


In this year who will have won,

Will Nature with man have become one,

Or will she of man still shun,

Hopefully not burned out will be our sun…


Will man have conquered the elements,

Or will he of his past wrongs, repent,

Will Nature accept his apologies,

Or will she with man still torment…?


Past differences forgotten,

No longer will man treat Nature rotten,

A birth between the two, misbegotten,

A marriage may not between the two be gotten,

But both will benefit, Nature and man, their differences forgotten…

Long ways away, I will not be here to see what is all happening, with high food price, gas gouging and homes decline and people put out of their homes, will anyone survive til then? It is a sad situation to look forward to by those who will be here.

2801? I think mankind will be gone long before that, my friend - at the rate we are destroying this planet - it will never last another 800 years. And in case you don't know, the ancient Mayans predicted the world will end in 2012. Ye Ain't Got Much Time Left, My Friend - Better Enjoy Yourself - While Ye Can.

Good questions. Time will answer.
