The true date of the end of the world…or not…

While we’re all familiar with some proposed dates for the apocalypse – December 21st 2012, Y2K – most of us have never even heard of half of history’s failed predictions. Now don’t get me wrong, Kennedy and I are both hedging our bets that we’ll see the EOTWAWKI – otherwise we wouldn’t be writing – but we’re realistic as well. Some doomsday scenarios are just senseless, like the Mayan doomsday for instance. But some scenarios are rational (Nuclear war, anyone?) and others are scientifically plausible (Astroid hitting the earth in 2036).

A little while back I uncovered the below infographic. This beauty details some of the most widespread predictions of the apocalypse throughout history, ranging from predictions by the Assyrians to NASA. Take a gander, share, and don’t forget to consider the non-datable predictions – i.e. aliens, nuclear war, super volcanos, zombies, financial collapse. The end of the world is still alive and well and we’ll be ready.
