Thursday, November 17: The Apocalypse
Salt Lake City, UT – Tsunamis, earthquakes, war, hurricanes, famine, plague; these and other global developments have some people wondering, "Are the end times just around the bend? Are we witnessing the coming apocalypse?" But why? And where in the spectrum of historical apocalypic prediction do our worries fit? Is apocalypse solely a Western and Christian idea? Are such concerns based only in faith or is there also scientific evidence? Professor Richard Landes of the Center for Millenial Studies and Father James Thompson of the Newman Ceneter join host Doug Fabrizio to discuss the history and current discussion of the armageddon, the eschaton, the apocalypse.
