Nightlion was not worried about it. He just thought it was going to be a sign of how awesome he is in the sight of God as a scourge he claims was predicted twice in the D&C was coming to vindicate him. So, birds of a feather...
I don't think Nightlion knows what increases the risk for a new pandemic. I knew a pandemic was coming, I thought it was going to be much worse, but we got lucky. It's overpopulation and farmed animals that increase the risk. Perhaps we won't be so lucky for the next one (it could end civilization as we know it), and it will happen within 20 years unless we change.

Any predictions for the changes to be made by President David A. Bednar of Even the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints?

So what is going to happen when autism rates go up? Or if SS retirement and Medicare end? Young people are scared and that is not a good thing. I still think that only AI can save us. Politics and the government won't do anything.

Let me think. I should create a "predictions" topic.

The last global pandemic of this scale came on the heels of a global war - an industrial war that ate men and turned them into rotting corpses by the thousands. Every day for four years.

One thing missing from your list almost every generation of humans would have feared that you don't? And many people today still do? Starvation. One of the four things on your list is caused by having an overabundance of processed foods in fact.

I get it. There are things that seem insurmountable, terrifying even. But every generation has faced their own challenges, most of which were pretty damn rough at that, and faced them down despite being scared. There are far too many reasons to be positive than negative. Buck up.

Very true, but past generations didn't have statistical trends.

The primary reason charlatans keep making a living predicting people's futures is by being accidentally right every once in a while. For some reason, people ignore all the times they're wrong.

The experts predicted the pandemic, but no one was talking about it and it never dominated the headlines.
