"Our Earth is degenerate in these later days; there are signs that the world is speedily coming to an end; bribery and corruption are common; children no longer obey their parents ... and the end of the world is evidently approaching." --Assyrian clay tablet, c. 2800 B.C.
Everything changes and nothing changes.
What do you see as a "sign" of the coming apocalypse? For me, it's e-readers like the Nook and Kindle. Yeah, verily, the world must be coming to an end.
