Naturally, most normal people don’t believe the end of the world. It’s just by virtue of the healthy propensity of the human mind not to trust both overly gloomy predictions and overly optimistic. However, there are also those who, despite historical examples and the voice of common sense, are confident of coming it in the very near future. Above all these are enlightened pessimists. People whose view of their destiny and of the world as a whole is so dark that they are sure that nothing good will end. By perceiving only the negative aspects of any information, they conclude the inevitability and intimacy of the end of everything.
Another group of individuals are easily indelible people who tend to take even the most incredible information on faith without subjecting it to any meaningful analysis.

Of course, the probability of the end of the world cannot be completely excluded. In theory, it could come any minute. But this is not a reason to stop soberly assessing reality and enjoy life in all its manifestations — both spiritual and material.
