Here we go again...those who purport to study such things, are at it again, with the arrival of a Blood Moon next week, and of course it will herald the End of the World, yet again. Wonder if anyone has ever counted, the times it was forecast to happen, and will they ever be right,or even close, to such an event.. Religious prophecy, growing conflict around the globe, natural world disasters, and of course the impending lunar event, of next week... have created a perfect storm for those who believe doomsday is nigh. The Christian Bible indicates a tremendous earthquake, along with the moon looking akin to blood is the beginning of the end. Wonder if these doom mongers, ever consider,they have been wrong so many times before as to be ridiculous, in their prophecies. After all a blood moon simply appears appear red or rust due to light refracting through the Earth’s atmosphere, I would call that a Natural event, how about you?

I didn't expect the end of the world, but that's because we are told that no man will know the day or hour. So I automatically disbelieve anyone who says they know.

I am not going to worry about it ending, when I have barely got my own living started. The end will come sooner than we would like anyway

@Rollo1 How very sensible, do you want to spend the rest of your life worrying about what might or might not occur, when there would be little you could do about it anyway!!

The world seems to be constantly approaching the end of the world. There is always someone who manages to find significance in some obscure text written thousands of years ago by Egyptians, Mayans and various other civilisations. Sometimes months or even years are then spent calculating the end of the world according to such an ancient reference. Amusingly this never seems to predict the event as being due in a few centuries or a few millennia, instead it invariable points to a moment in time that we are rapidly approaching. There are always vast numbers of individuals who take these predictions as accurate and the predictions always find their way into the media. Countless such predictions have been made and each time the specified date has passed without incident, yet still people are convinced by the next prediction.

This is in my childhood memory 100yrs ago, when 7th day adventists all swarmed into Sophia Gardens in Cardiff to face the end of the world together..I wonder why I thought then, that the world was full of strange people....funny they're still around..or worse!

It seems that nothing changed since the Egyptian pharaoh used the solar eclipse to scare the populations pretending that it was punishment of Gods. Of course all those are only natural events, but we still need to be scared.

All life is scary Anna, if you look at the millions of potential events that could become disasters, many from our own creation, I agree, but there is one certain set of Doom mongers, that actually appears to enjoy, scaring sensitive people witless, with their ongoing gloom and doom...but maybe the rest of us are just burying our heads in the sand...who knows?

@bookbar I do not believe we are burying our heads in the sand. Natural events occur since the earth exists. The humans have even created more. The Doom mongers love to scare people and some people love to have something to be scared of.

They crawl out of the woodwork right after Christmas almost every year and with the fame Nostradamus has gained it's gotten worse. Why can't they just dwell on the beauty of nature instead.

Or maybe they just don't know how to, appreciate what they have, and small minds require calamities to forecast.. to make them feel important, even though in the bigger picture,they are merely a speck of dust!

I don't know what is going to happen let alone next week. Some people must enjoy being all doom and gloom! Alternatively they could be using it as an excuse to have a good booze up!
