[QUOTE=inkBot]But I guess that'd depend on what you consider "modern".[/QUOTE]
I was speaking, perhaps naively, from my own observations over the last 30 years. The number of end-of-the-world theories and cults seemed to mushroom in the early to mid 80s. Since Y2K entered the public consciousness, it seems we've had a nearly consistent flow of doomsday scenarios.
I suppose it could be that it just seems that way, since popular media is everywhere, and are always hungry for a good (or even mediocre) story.
I propose that all of the doomsday blather is created and promoted by a secret cabal of outdoor and survivalist outfitters.
