Science is getting people ready to survive the apocalypse and thus helping to thoroughly creep people out. Good job science. All joking aside though when things do start to take a downward turn, which many people feel is already happening, there are going to be a lot of people that possibly will not survive simply because they haven’t had to do anything in the way of real survival at any point in their life.
You’ll need water, food, warmth, shelter, clothing, and in some cases a lot of luck to survive the apocalypse whenever it actually decides to come. Some people think it will come soon, others tend to think that it might not come in their lifetime. Whenever it does come however you’ll definitely want to be prepared.
According to the clip the survival techniques you’ll need have a lot to do with keeping healthy and using fire as one of your main sources for warmth, cooking, and keeping yourself healthy by fighting against bacteria and diseases that can and will come about when the world finally ends and there is nothing left but a barren wasteland.
Science seems to tell you how to survive and how to keep yourself alive, but what they don’t tell you is what will really be happening in the wilds should the end of days ever really come. Maybe it’s to spare people from the grim thought that the world could end one day, as so many people have said, or maybe it’s because the chance that you’ll survive is so slim that this cursory training will just delay the inevitable.
The talk of the end of the world and the apocalypse has been going on for so long that people are starting to get nervous just thinking about it. Unfortunately the truth is that anything could happen at any time. If we spend time worrying about it constantly then life is bound to become hectic and less worth living if we’re so caught up in the act of prepping for the end.
One day or another this world that we know probably will end, but the chances of it being in this lifetime or another are so slim that the prepping and the training and the constant freaking out about whether or not we’re ready is a little pointless. If things do pop off in the next ten years or so and things get that bad then I’ll eat my words, but if it gets that bad then likely as not the internet won’t be around anymore so I’ll be eating crow without anyone to notice. I can live with that.
The point is that these survival skills are in fact very useful, but in terms of surviving the apocalypse people should remember that humanity has been through a lot in our relatively short time on this earth, and we’ve always survived somehow. If the apocalypse does come in our lifetime we’ll find a way to get through it.
Humanity is tenacious when it comes to survival, remember that.
