‘Preppers’ believe End is Nigh

Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse   (by Viktor Vasnetsov)
For some, the phrase "no end in sight" is welcome news.  They are the ones who cherish life here on Earth.

For others, Judgment Day can’t come soon enough.  Among the self-professed righteous, there may even be those who are hoping that this month is IT.

Cristina Silva of International Business Times reports that so-called Mormon “preppers” believe that the apocalypse could begin on September 28, 2015. 

Their beliefs are allegedly based upon “biblical prophecies, the Hebrew calendar, an unstable economy, world politics and astronomical occurrences.”

As part of this “prepping,” sales of survival items such as freeze-dried food and tents have recently skyrocketed within certain regions of Utah.

“Officials with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, however, remain unconvinced. NASA has also debunked such speculation, affirming that the heavens seem void of any such imminent threat.
