The end of the world or the apocalypse has fascinated mankind throughout the ages The apocalypse is a central event in dozens of books movies and video games Likewise post-apocalyptic themes also play a central roll in many of these forms of pop culture Additionally according to Paul Boyer in his essay The Foreordained Future Apocalyptic Thought in the Abrahamic Religion the apocalypse plays a pivotal role in religion specifically in the three Abrahamic religions Boyer also states that apocalyptic belief has influenced mankind on a global scale stating This religious upsurge rooted in competing visions of the future has profound implications for politics and diplomacy Boyer 75 Therefore because of the importance of the end of the world in pop culture religion and world politics I feel that it is important to state my own opinions about the apocalypseTo many doomsday is emotionally resonant and a live possibility They may live in fear of the coming end of the world believing that there is nothing they can do to change the outcome Others might prepare for the end by stuffing their houses with canned goods building bomb shelters in anticipation of war or collecting ammunition and firearms to protect themselves from unruly crowds after the collapse of civilization Still others anticipate doomsday with joyousness believing that the apocalypse though it may bring great destruction will herald a new age of human goodness and perfection Although I agree with these apocalypse believers that there are many risks to human civilization and planet Earth I do not believe that such an event is likely within our lifetime Mankind has survived for hundreds of thousands of years and so far no major event has completely wiped out humans in this large span of time Therefore I believe that the apocalypse is just an interesting idea not a live possibility Although I do not believe in apocalyptic stories where mankind with no warning whatsoever is completely wiped out
