The universe could be about to collapse, and everything in it—including us—will be compressed into a small, hard ball.

The process may already have started somewhere in our cosmos and is eating away at the rest of the universe, according to theoretical physicists.

The mind-bending concept has been around for a while, but now researchers in Denmark claim they have proven it is possible with mathematical equations. …

Geeez... and these idiots are actually being paid to think up this BS.

Of course we should wait this time until the collapse actually occurs until we award them the Nobel Prize.

These idiots will probably come up with some new government regulations and taxes to prevent this. Just watch.

Easily avoidable with the universal collapse tax (UCT) soon to be proposed by the dumbocraps and voted FOR closure before they vote AGAINST by GOPe.

Could the universe collapse TODAY?

Well as this was published on the 14th and it is now the 15th it is a safe conclusion that the answer is no.
Going on past performance the answer will be 'no' for today as well.

That’s not what’s foretold. Check out Romans 8:19-21. God doesn’t make anything in vain, as Isaiah 45:18 notes, too.

the Universe Collapse Tax is already in effect, it was snuck in as one of the 69,000 new taxes in the Obamacare law.

ps: the Universe Collapse Tax does not fund the politicians so they can stop the collapse of the universe. That is a misunderstanding. The UCT funds the politicians so they can collapse the universe (a bit faster than they already are). That is why it is called the Universe Collapse Tax.

For those so inclined to learn more about what the Great Attractor might be, read Stephen Baxter's Xeelee series - warning: hard science and real mind blowing physics (Xeelee: An Omnibus: Raft, Timelike Infinity, Flux, Ring). Ring deals specifically with the Great Attractor.

Ohhhhhhh! But it’s only a hologram! How can a hologram collapse?

But this universe is just part of the multiverse. If this universe isn’t any good we’ll just go to another universe, using a wormhole, of course.

But the universe pops in and out of existence, randomly, out of nothing. So don’t worry. Just wait for the next jump into nothingness and it will be all right!

All bull$h!t. They don’t have a clue! They can’t even explain the origin of the universe. They can’t explain red shift. They can’t explain gravity.

If it does there is nothing anyone on Earth can do about it. I always figured “don’t worry about stuff that is beyond your control.”
