It’s the End of the World as We Know It … Again

To paraphrase Yeats’ famous poem, these are the ways the world ends. This site’s a mother lode of destruction that answers all the questions we were afraid to ask about doomsday’s possible manifestations. From the lists of apocalyptic prophecies from 633 B.C. to those currently in vogue, to the site’s comprehensive list of movies, TV shows and books dealing with the end of our civilization, ruin is the theme supreme. The annotated links page provides doomsday clocks; scenarios of destruction including atomic incineration, asteroid collisions and a massive volcanic eruption in Yellowstone Park; and a trip through Jehovah’s Armageddon Museum. There’s enough fodder here to feed a herd of galloping nightmares, or maybe just four apocalyptic horses.
