Why are people preparing themselves for a "doomsday"? Hollywood? Need for Closure? Fear? Religion?


Why are people preparing for a "doomsday"? Since before man has been able to write on paper, there have been "prophets" who have foretold the event to end all events. Why? Do we , as humans, seek closure? Why can't we plan for, say.... a peaceful, bright future? There are a TON of movies (especially from the 80's), that show the future as dark, dismal, post-apocalyptic, (always raining :) )....did it effect us subconsciously,... or is it religion? are we literally EXPECTING the world to end? What happens when it doesn't?
