Prophets have claimed to have divine knowledge.  The source of their divination is unclear, although many have claimed to be in direct contact with their deities in order to validate their knowledge.  Many modern day prophets have extolled the end […]

End of the World Series: The Path to Survival

One argument has come up.  That of what would happen if the world were burned to a cinder, either by gamma radiation, a meteor/comet strike, or catastrophic event.

Doomsday, Seeing it for Yourself…

In the very short 50+ years that I have been on the earth, I have personally witnessed volcanic eruptions, earthquake, tremendous fires, floods, tornadoes, even citywide unrest.

A Continuation of the End of the World

Recap:  After talking to a number of people I know, I came up with a number of questions: How many bullets can you carry? What do you do, when you run out of ammo? When you run out of food, what then? If you dig a hole deep enough, will you survive? There are so […]
