That is the trouble with all of these 'end of days' cults - the Abrahamic religions - they use a  load of confirmation bias to convince people that something is going to happen, using a whole load of unconnected events.

If the bible/Quran/ whatever is the only book you'll ever need then where is the value of the peak frequency of the microwave background radiation? What about the energy of the Higgs particle? Where is the correct value for the speed of light? Just a load of superstitious stories that are designed to pull people into it by using fear - a sort of bogey man for adults, except that the god of Abraham is a vengeful, genocidal maniac.

This sort of stuff might have worked centuries ago when education wasn't very good and it was the best stab at science but things have moved on since then. We have a better way of understanding the universe than theistic religions. Gone are the perverse theme parks of heaven and hell, and the invisible friend - who needs a god that fails in its expectations every time. A god that sees and knows all, that knows everything that has been and everything that is, and everything that will be, by definition, has no free will.

Reality is so much more beautiful when you can look at it with the eyes of curiosity and with the openness needed to try to understand what is going on, instead of looking at it through the blinkered perspective of a know-it-all, one-book book club with a view to drawing together a disparate collection of events in an effort to prove that it is correct.

Sorry, holy books, you just got owned by science.

At 2:30, I love the way that the woman is so indifferent to what has just happened - obviously sees that sort of thing all of the time.

At 1:06, there is the statement; 'Islam - the youngest among the three Monotheistic religions' which struck me as curious:-

Surely it would be more honest to say that it was the youngest of the three Abrahamic religions. There are other monotheistic religions. Hinduism is one example of a monotheistic religion.

Many people - through ignorance - think that it is polytheistic, pointing to the various avatars and calling them gods but if they were doing that honestly, then, in the Abrahamic religions, they would also be calling Satan, the angel Gabriel and so on, 'Gods'.

The claim that the Abrahamic religions are 'the monotheistic religions' is false and divisive and its only purpose is to cause hatred and disharmony.
