From the writer of The genuine heritage in the back of the Templars--the origins and tales at the back of end-of-the-world predictions all through background, from Revelations to 2012.
In interesting and sharp prose, historian Sharan Newman explores theories of worldwide destruction from precedent days as much as the current day- theories which display as a lot approximately human nature as they do concerning the fundamental ancient, medical, and non secular ideals of the time. Readers will locate solutions to the subsequent end-of-times questions:
?Did the Mayans fairly say the realm will result in December 2012?
?How have the symptoms within the New testomony e-book of Revelations been interpreted through the years?
?How did historical Egyptians, Norse, and chinese language imagine the area could finish?
?When did Nostradamus are expecting that the final days may come?
?Does the I Ching reference 2012?
?Why did not the realm lead to Y2K?
?Are meteors, worldwide warming, super-volcanoes, and the specter of nuclear warfare symptoms that the top is close to?
