- DOOMSDAY 2012: THE END OF DAYS
It is a doomsday that is foretold in The Mayan Calendar, the Chinese oracle of the I Ching... even an internet-based prophetic software program: December 21st, 2012. Is there any truth to the prophecy that the world will end on that specific date? And why do so many oracles throughout history seem to point to that same dreaded doomsday?
- MAYAN DOOMSDAY PROPHECY
The Maya were legendary astronomers and timekeepers. Their calendar is more accurate than our own. By tracking the stars and planets they assigned great meaning to astronomical phenomena and made extraordinary predictions based on them. Many of them have come true. Could their 2012 doomsday prophecy, made more than 2,000 years ago, be one of them?
- DOOMSDAY TECH
Doomsday threats range from very real (nuclear arsenals) to controversial (global warming) to futuristic (nanotechnology, cyborgs, and robots). Despite the Cold War's end, we live under the shadow of nuclear weapons, arms races, and accidental launches.
- MORE DOOMSDAY TECH
The second deadly hour examines more threats--both natural and manmade--that may endanger civilization. From the far reaches of space to tiny viruses, bioterrorism and cyberterror, doomsday sources are many. But so are technologies used to keep doomsday at bay.
