617. If they turned on their television sets and saw a mushroom cloud had replaced New York City, they would see a silver lining in this cloud. (Religion & New York & End of the World & Apocalypse) Sam Harris, New York 2005 Society for Ethical Culture lecture
12,672. It is, therefore, not an exaggeration to say that if the city of New York were suddenly replaced by a ball of fire, some significant percentage of the American population would see a silver-lining in the subsequent mushroom cloud, as it would suggest to them that the best thing that is ever going to happen was about to happen: the return of Christ. It should be blindingly obvious that beliefs of this sort will do little to help us create a durable future for ourselves – socially, economically, environmentally, or geo-politically ... According to the most common interpretation of biblical prophecy, Jesus will return only after things have gone horribly awry. Imagine the consequences if any significant component of the US government actually believed that the world was about to end and that its ending would be glorious. The fact that nearly half of the American population apparently believes this, purely on the basis of religion dogma, should be considered a moral and intellectual emergency.

13,466. Colorado City – Continuing his rule behind bars, Fundamentalist LDS Church leader Warren Jeffs has told his congregation to prepare for the end of the world before the end of the year.
According to CNN reporter Gary Tuchman, polygamist sect leader Jeffs has declared that the world will end before 2013.
Though church members continue to work, Colorado City’s only grocery store – a gathering place for the town as well – has closed its doors. Sam Brower, a private investigator who has represented more than 100 former FLDS Church members, told CNN that the closure of the store is a confirmation that Jeffs’ declaration is being taken seriously.
Believers do not talk to reporters and nobody was willing to comment on the declaration. CNN reported that some FLDS members even used intimidation techniques involving driving large trucks by their cameras.
