Are We All Doomed? 2012 and other Prophecies

2012 and other prophecies of doom.

LFS co-founder and author on alternative religions Dr David V Barrett looks at recurring prophecies of Jesus’ return and how prophets cover their embarrassment when he doesn’t – again.

The failure of 2000/2001 to satisfy apocalyptic yearnings in the west has created a fresh focus on 2012 and the ‘end’ of the Mayan calendar (and maybe the whole world!). Regular Fortean Times contributor Peter Brookesmith surveys the 2012 apocalypse industry and analyses its appeal.

Each evening begins with the Fortmanteau, our monthly summary of strange news stories.
