End of the world forecasts come and go. The question everyone wonders, "Is the end of the world near?"
Throughout history, various seers, psychics and false prophets have predicted when all time will cease, the world will be obliterated and the righteous will be snatched away into heaven.
Christians have a major problem with such forecasts – Jesus said even He didn’t know the date or hour when the Almighty would draw history to a close.
Over the course of history, there have been a number of theologians, philosophers and religious figures who've predicted the end of the world was near. From the digital world sabotaging everything to massive comets creating another Big Bang, every theory has been presented and publicized. Here are 25 of the more fascinating doomsday predictions over the last 2,000 years.
Incidentally, a couple of the seers insisted that their forecasts were completely valid ... and you and I just weren't paying good enough attention and ... we missed it! However, there are other occurrences that were perpetuated on theory after theory – and the spoiler alert is that the question of ‘Is the end of the world near?’ continues to exist.
