I've seen the END of the WORLD!

I'm having a vision ... wait ... YES!

I see the world blowing up!!

I also see the number 42!

Now there is a Bowl of Petunias and a TOWEL?

 

 

The world has been ending for 1000s of years. I swear, every year there is some new prediction. Just to make this a debate ... in your opinion, why do people keep believing these doomsday predictions?

  • My personal theory I just made up:

    The world has a few too many egomaniacs who believe if they are going to die, the rest of the world should go with them (helps explain the shorter-visioned people who commit murder-suicide). Since they have no idea when their death will occur, they convince themselves that some big giant cataclysm will take care of it. Why not go out with a huge bang?

  • I am happy with my life HERE on earth NOW....I am not looking to be swept up and called back to the Lord or seeing the "end of times"....I am happy with the present...with NOW.\
    I think unhappy people are hoping that the end is near because they think it will be better for them, They are hoping that they will be happy after they die.....wow....I would rather not ignore the present . Some just want to escape the reality of their lives here on earth and live with one foot in the afterlife/heaven.
