A lot of people think the world is in a cycle like the ice ages, where the earth was destroyed. Does this give any evidence that the Earth will be destroyed again?

There are many theories on this subject, but the evidence leads scientists to think that the earth will once again ice over. Remember not all of the Earth was covered with ice during the ice ages, but of course the temperature dropped all over. The Earth is constantly altering it's appearance, and is shifting as we speak. Ultimately, in time, the Earth will appear totally different than today. The extent of this whether it is another Ice Age, or whatever, is hard to predict.
