THE END IS NEAR!!! Okay, not really, but a whole bunch of people throughout history have certainly thought that the whole human race was heading for a worldwide cataclysm...any day now. So far, not a single one of these gleeful doomsday prophecies has turned out to be accurate, but what is it with folks who keep predicting the end of the world? And why do their followers still believe them? On this episode, Tom and Jenny take a wild, whirlwind tour through the wacky world of the end of the world, discussing everything from the Great Disappointment of the Millerites to the repeated prediction fails of Harold Camping to the inscrutable prophecies of Nostradamus. Hunker down in your rapture bunker and spend your final hour with episode 55.
