Word of the Day: Eschatological

Eschatological Adj. 1. of or relating to or dealing with or regarding the ultimate destiny of mankind and the world Since reading Bill Bryson's A Short History of Nearly Everything last year, and with the tsunami on Dec 26, I've become a bit preoccupied with the multiple ways nature has of flicking us off this earth we call home. Whether its mega-tsunamis, super volacanoes, meteor strikes, a new ice age, or the reversal (and periodic diminishing) of the earth's magnetic field, there's a lot lining up against us. So it's good that we now have the appropriate term to describe this array of potential catastrophes.
