Apocalypse Not: Why Everything You Know About 2012, Nostradamus and the Rapture Is Wrong | [John Michael Greer]

Apocalypse Not: Why Everything You Know About 2012, Nostradamus and the Rapture Is Wrong

The hundreds of end-of-time prophecies splashed across the consciousness from the time of clay tablets to our Internet have had something besides hysteria in common: every one of them has been wrong. Here is a survey of three millennia of apocalyptic prophecies, tracing one of the most remarkable threads of our cultural history: our long and unproductive fascination with apocalyptic myths and miracles that can solve our problems without requiring committed action in our own lives.
