    Apocalypse Past

    It seemed that through 2015 and 2016, there was a real rise in Apocalypse feelings. Several stations had shows like "How the World Ends" or about preppers.

    Now this year, they're gone.

    Was it just a fad reflecting our anxiety on the presidential election? Or is this a lull so we don't know the day or the hour?

    I think it could be either one. Honestly the apocalypse genre is in a sense escapism.

    Seems like there were considerably more as 2000 approached as well as 2012.

    So an outbreak of apocalyptic thinking probably correlates to a rise in anxiety in society. I can handle that.

    Nevertheless, let us keep looking for the return of our Lord and Savior Christ Jesus.
