Resources: Answering questions about the end times

In 2011, 44 percent of Americans said they believe that natural disasters are signs of the end times; among evangelical Christians, it was 67 percent. While many religious Americans anticipated the fast-approaching coming of Christ, many other Americans were pointing to the end of the Mayan Long Count Calendar on Dec. 21, 2012 as the end of time, and many secularists saw the end coming by way of climate change or other environmental catastrophes. Yet others mocked such fears and expectations. Religion Newswriters Association, a member organization that supports quality reporting on religion, put together a resource page on doomsday prophecies featuring context, background, recent articles, definitions of terms and expert contact information covering all sides of the issue. The information, archived on RNA’s sister site, ReligionLink, could be used by writers, students, or clergy wishing to discuss the theories with their congregations or answer their questions.
