What's the philosophy behind the concept of an encroaching apocalypse?


Nearly every religion, belief system, and culture seems to have some concept of the world ending. I know that an end will come eventually in at least a couple billion years when the sun dies, but I'm talking more specifically about an end during the time of human civilization. What is it about human nature that causes us to expect that an end is coming, and coming relatively soon?
