Look at simple science and maths, combine the two and you have the workings of a computer.

I will not bore you all with how a computer actually works, but the Americans nor the English originally came up with the fundamental basics of the computer... the Egyptians did. (Don't quote me on that as this is from memory and something I have not covered in several years)

They discovered the base 2 binary system that all computer now use. They created a clock if I remember my studies correctly. It worked on cogs, the problem is people saw it as some form of witchcraft and you guessed it tore it down. (This generally proves though that computers are nothing new.)

Everybody has their own field of expertise, mine is the programming of computers, but I know a decent amount about the workings of the hardware too. So to me the question "How is this possible?" is rather not simple as some of the mathematics are very complex but believable and if I wanted to bore and confuse half of you provable.
Engineering I also know some of and if anybody wants to lose their mind over really hard maths, go look at a "Laplace Transform" literally taking you into another plane of existence.

Yup, First computers: Egyptian, but first working clock: Greek and it worked well for a very long time. (also from memory)

But what has it got to do to with our little party to celibrate the end of the world?

Once the world ends and everthing is destroyed, do u think life will be created again and will the natural process of evolution start over again

That makes two of us!

Rumor has it that about the only things to "survive" the end of the world will be ants and cockroaches. That's scary!! There won't be a decent apartment in New York to rent that won't have cockroaches. I'm going for a drink as the thought is really way too scary and I don't want to live in New York anyway. Besides, it's cocktail somewhere in the world.
