While I think the apocalypse will arrive as a result of us blowing ourselves up or allowing a fancy new designer virus that turns everyone into zombies to fall into the wrong hands, I’ve always been partial to The End coming as a result of an asteroid impact. (Well, that and alien invasion. What can I say, I’m a science fiction geek.)
I think it puts the human race in a slightly better light,
With the Rapture in the news a little while ago, Char asked all our readers what their apocalypse looked like. I commented (as did many others) but thought on it a little more. I spent quite some time thinking, and eventually, I came up with a list of apocalypses, from least likely to most likely. Then I thought of what you and yours could do to survive them.
Today either is, or isn’t the Rapture. Let’s face it, probably ‘isn’t’. We’ve been getting a huge number of new visitors from Rapture based searches, and I just wanted to say: Hello, Fellow Paranoids!
Regardless of whether the Rapture has occured or not, there is still a lot of survival based stuff to learn. We hope you stick around, and figure out how to survive a more likely apocalypse. Like hyper-intelligent animals, or cats with thumbs.
I have no idea how I missed this, but apparently, the biblical Judgment Day (a.k.a. The Rapture) will occur on May 21, 2011. That’s right. The Rapture will happen THIS SATURDAY. The world will end (by fire) five months later, on October 21.
Set for release in September 2011, Rage embraces the notion of a chaotic, violent and indulgent future. It has a similar vibe to the Max Max or A Boy and His Dog universes. It’s some how dark and dangerous while still being light and fun.
