Big Heat : CO2 in the atmosphere will bring us a back a new carboniferous era.
Big Freeze : rise of global temperature will change ocean streams regulation and will make the Gulf Stream disappear, which in turn will freeze Europe and north America or Universe will expand indefinetely and mid energy level will fall forever until every star burns out and everything freezes to death for ever
Big Crunch : Universe will cease to expand and will contract again, to the Big Crunch and a new Big Bang to come.
Big rip I don't know of.

    It's Heath Death, not Big Heat, as in the heat death of the Universe. That is, the ultimate consequence of the laws of thermodynamics. A uniformly warm, high-entropy universe where nothing can happen because there's no sink left (sort of like the depletion of a ZPM :-P)

    Thanks for the info, but I still stand by my original choice.

      I would think that, as a Christian, you would think that the Apocalypse is the best-case scenario, as it constitutes the fulfillment of the divine plan. What could possibly be better?

      We're building the house of the future together.

        While this is true it sort of leads to mixed feelings. On one hand, I would get to meet my Lord, but on the other, there are so many souls that are yet to be saved.
