Publisher's Summary

In this hour, renowned religious historian Elaine Pagels says the Book of Revelation is the Bible's most controversial book and she explains its enduring appeal.

Next, feeling hopeless? How about cake recipes for the Apocalypse? Shannon O'Malley offers a few of her favorite recipes.

Then, Some people believe there's a Mayan prophecy that the world will end on Dec. 21, 2012. What does the Mayan calendar really say? Mayanist David Stuart uncovers the real story.

After that, do physicists think about End Times? Noted string theorist Brian Greene does. He looks into the far future - billions of years from now - and sees a very dark universe.

Following that, ever since the Cold War ended, we've largely forgotten about the threat of nuclear war. Ron Rosenbaum says that's a huge mistake. In fact, the threat is very real in today's world.

Finally, Slavoj Zizek is the "world's hippest philosopher," says the Telegraph. Zizek talks about the hidden atheism of Christianity, the danger of poets in power, and the limits of capitalism. [Broadcast Date: August 10, 2011]
