ok, I have to ask the big question. Why do we look for "the END"?

What is it about people in general, and some more so than others, look for the "END" to be either predicted or prophesied? Is it some morbid need that we have, as a race, that demands that we look for some giant hand of god to "bring the hammer down" on our existence? I know I'm sarcastic about all of this because the truth of the matter is that I simply don't get it. I don't buy into any of the doomsday speculation and I don't believe in "revelations" coming to pass either. I'm asking this question for precisely that reason. Someone, please, please, explain this to me in a way that's not full of tripe and makes me want to puke of the unrealistic-ness of it all?????

Sorry, but I can't explain it either, but I have often wondered the same thing. I just live my life to the best and the fullest. If it happens while I'm alive, it happens. If it doesn't, it doesn't.

That's kinda how I feel about it. If I'm going to die, I don't want to know about it. I want to think that I've lived a decent life and that I'm ok with it if I go. I just don't understand the need that some people seem to have to see the end of the world written in the sand, or in the bark of a tree or something.
