Conversations Beyond Science and Religion – The End of the World
Doomsayers have been predicting the end of the world since the beginning of time. Fortunately, all of them have been wrong. On December 21, 2012, the world, according to some accounts, is scheduled to end again as that day concludes the calendar for the ancient Mayan civilization. If that isn’t enough doom, millions of people remain fascinated by a variety of other end-of-the-world scenarios ranging from the Rapture to global warming. Join host Philip Mereton, as he tries to make sense of it all with guest Justin Deering, author of the new book, The End-of-the-World Delusion: How Doomsayers Endanger Society.
