There is no question but that the world will come to an end some day. But the notion that due to the course of history that human behavior will bring about some end times destruction is nonsense. Of course we could create a virus that could do that but no one is deliberately working on a way to destroy the entire world human society.
There have been wars and famines that have made the people of various nations and cultures feel that the end of the world had come. But these have always been local issues. There is no example of some global catastrophe where the whole world human society suffered.
Religions who try to scare people into believing in an Apocalypse are misguided.
Peace comes in knowing that there will never be a world wide apocalypse of human origin.
