i think it's interesting that people always predict the end of the world based on their sphere of influence.
[list]
[*]The world is going to end b/c Jesus' return (say Christians) even though Jesus doesnt exist. Why Jesus? Perhaps vishnu returns to earth instead. oh, right, b/c their sphere of influence is so small.
[*]Another group thinks the world is going to end due to a nuclear war. they say this b/c it's 1967 and in the middle of the Cold War.
[*]2280 - According to Rashad Khalifa's research on the [url="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quran_Code"]Quran Code[/url], the world will end in this year.
[/list]
It's all such quaint thinking, isnt it?

Yep. You can even have people as brilliant as Newton making these absurd predictions:

[url="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isaac_Newton"]Isaac Newton[/url]: Newton predicted that Christ's Millennium would begin in the year 2000 in his book [i]Observations upon the Prophecies of Daniel, and the Apocalypse of St. John.[/i]


Smart people can be wrong.

So when is the next "doomsday" supposed to occur? Or is it too soon for the crazies to decide on that?

"Beshore bases his prediction on [url="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hal_Lindsey"]Hal Lindsey[/url]'s failed 1988 prediction that Jesus would return within one biblical generation of the founding of Israel in 1948. Lindsey stated a biblical generation was 40 years. Beshore argues that Lindsey's prediction was correct, but that his definition of a biblical generation was incorrect, which is actually 70

According to that list I've survived ~70 "End of the World" prophecies, and I'm still young, got a good 100 or more in me

What's really sad are all the Christian based ones, did they not read the Bible? It says plainly that even God doesn't know when he will start the end from starting, how can some lowly preacher know more then God?

Mostly the old "This is a spiritual renewal. A time of great change." blah blah. The same vague nonsense that every embarrassed person makes when their predictions fall flat.

Here's to the next apocalypse we can all survive together *raises glass*

Can I just ask, the Mayan calendar which was discovered between the 1th and 13th Century. Some bright spark discovered a stone which represented the end of the world, 23rd December 2012.

Okay, The likelihood of anything happening on the 23rd 2013, is the same as you buying a full page lotto ticket and you fill in the whole sheet which is about
