According to Pastor Mark Blitz and the surprisingly popular „Blood Moon prophecy,“ we’ve all got about a year left on the planet, but I, for one, am still making longer-term plans.

Armageddon. The End Times. The Rapture. Ragnarok. There are many different terms for the end of humanity brought on as part of a divine plan or by the deities themselves, but most religions maintain a similar belief that mankind will eventually experience some sort of reckoning at the hands of the gods.
Some of those who do believe in this „end times“ scenario will resort to extreme actions in order to prepare, such as selling their homes, quitting their jobs, blowing up their family pets, and even committing suicide. And fringe groups aren’t the only ones who believe in these apocalyptic situations, as many mainline Protestants believe in the second coming of Christ, and Muslims, Hindus, and other mainstream faiths contain similarly destructive scenarios in their scriptures. In fact, this death-cult mentality is shared by many: Some 22 percent of Americans believe that the world will end during their lifetime.
