Does there have to be an end?
The movie 2012,an epic adventure about a global cataclysm that brings an end to the world and tells of the heroic struggle of the survivors, shows once again our fixation with catastrophe and an apocalyptic end to this earth.
It seems logical to think that there will be an end - if there is a beginning then there must be an end.
But of course leave it to Hollywood to show us how brave the American people can be and how vital their leadership is for the continuation of the human species.
Noah's ark must have been much simpler yet much more resistant.
