Are you ready for the end of times? The End of the World?
It seems that it’s in the human nature to make predictions as to when will our world END.
Since time immemorial have we made predictions about future events and the day the world will come to an end. The end of days.
Since the 1st century CE, it seems there is written evidence to a time the world will come to an end.
However, most of these (inaccurate) predictions are in fact badly defined by supernatural predictions. They are connected to supernatural events we have no control over.
From alleged ancien calendars that predicted the end of times to comets striking Earth and nuclear disasters, there are countess predictions that have “failed” to see the world end.
Looking back into history, we have the Ragnarök—the battle between the gods which will result in the annihilation of all but two humans who will eventually repopulate the entire planet.
If we take a peek at Zoroastrianism, we will find that end of the world will allegedly occur when a comet—referred to as the Gochihr impacts our planet, causing all the metals on earth to melt, and eventually causing the entire world to incinerate.
One of the earliest written events can be found in Early Christianity: The Second Coming, when Jesus Christ will return to earth in fulfillment of His promises and to fulfill the prophecies made about Him. It is believed how Revelation chapters 6-18 describe the end times prior to the Second Coming of Christ. The world will be devastated, millions of people will perish, and the most evil person in all history will be ruler of the entire world.
Around the 7th century. Muslims believed in the so called Qiyamah—the Last Judgement—during which time Jesus Christ will arrive to Earth, end all war and kill the antichrist— ad-Dajjal. All people shall be resurrected and shall be judged by God.
