In this issue of Ancient Origins Magazine (History, Mystery and Science) : Humans have always recorded and feared an apocalypse or ‘end of times’, when the gods would wipe out life on earth in one fell swoop. We might be surprised to learn that the world almost did come to an end several times in the ancient past! In this issue we recount climatic calamities of epic proportions; from floods and volcanoes and tsunamis, to earthquakes and meteors and more. These events changed humanity and the planet’s landscape forever. Sometimes it is not only the world that changes, but our deepest faith and beliefs. We examine how these incidents influenced ancient religions and myths, leading to cautionary tales of disaster that we retell to this day.
