I doubt the Christians will run out of Apocalyptic scenarios. They have
been predicting the end of the world within the next decade for 2000 years.
I remember the end of the world be signaled by man on the moon, the energy
crisis, when the planets aligned, Iraq/Iran, the European Union, the United
Nations, Clinton, Y2K.... There will always be signs of the end-times. I
see no reason for that to stop now.
