Barry Vacker on "The End of the World -- Again: Why the Apocalypse Meme Replicates in Media, Science, and Culture"

April 4, 2013

Barry Vacker talks with Steve Paulson about his book, "The End of the World -- Again: Why the Apocalypse Meme Replicates in Media, Science, and Culture."



why is it that in the broadcast there was mention of apocalypse as coming to the Earth/humans from various sources, outer space (the universe), the global warming problems, wars and several others but the "father(s)" of the idea of apocalypse wasn't mentioned at all when it should have been on the top of the list, that is what Jesus spoke about. Isn't that where western civilization got the entire idea from. Doesn't the author know that the Jesus and Old Testament prophets spoke about the Earth being recycled by "heat" and fire, toxins, space aliens (birds, dragon (reptilian?) (fallen angel) (serpent) invasion, large object(s) from space hitting the ocean, etc. and plagues that cause humans to mentally snap, etc. Is it because it's unpopular to say the name Jesus, in a sense understandably. If you ever want a show that speaks truth to power and is not Christian or religionist nor atheist nor new age spiritual go to my site on My book will be out soon but I'm revealing it's content gradually on the internet radio broadcast and you probably won't find what I am reporting reported anywhere else.
