No offense to you, and I respect you for helping whoever it is that's awaiting trial for CP, but I've come across "the sky is falling" doomsday predictors over the years. We've been around half a million years, and I see no reason why that would change anytime soon. I'd be curious to hear your particular angle as to why civilization will collapse in the near future.
I find people like that to essentially be the same as conspiracy theorists, they've built up this construct in their heads, and if you don't agree with them, you're naive/blind/stupid/whatever. They tend to go hand in hand too, like one guy I knew that was convinced of something like this was also a big conspiracy theorist too.
