Apocalypse...When? #1-5: Apocalypse...Not! Is It Up To Us?

Original premiere date: Friday, Nov. 23, 2012

What if “apocalypse” simply means not knowing what’s coming? The year 2000 arrived without a computer-crashing Y2K bang, yet people continue to believe the dates ahead of us, especially December 21, 2012, are ripe with prophetic possibility. But among these imagined scenarios, are there serious harbingers of real danger: increasingly extreme, violent weather? Solar flares? Earthquakes and tsunamis? A global financial system on the verge of collapse? Are these increasingly common phenomena warnings for us? Should contemporary forecasts of impending doom frighten the life out of us, or are we, like Ebenezer Scrooge and his visions of the future, being offered a chance for a new beginning…if only we had the will to change?
