The revolt of nature
The Apocalypse, or judgment day – the day of the end of the world, when there will be a terrifying power and scale of natural disasters. This concept is connected with the revelations of the Apostle John in the book of the New Testament, where the Apocalypse is a form of fantastic visions that describe the terrible struggle between the "heavenly soldiers" and the Antichrist.
The Apocalypse describes and rebellious mood of the people. According to legend, there are four horsemen of the Apocalypse who will come to this world to forever destroy it. The four horsemen:
- a rider on a white horse, symbolizing the plague or pestilence,
- a rider on a red horse, symbolizing war and destruction
- a rider on a black horse, symbolizing famine,
- the rider on the pale horse symbolizing death.
The white horse is considered the embodiment of falsehood and injustice. The red horse is a symbol of the blood shed on the battlefield. The black horse is a symbol of death and despair. The pale horse represents the color of the skin of a deceased person.
The victory of the forces of evil
In parallel with the Apocalypse, talking about Armageddon, although this is not synonymous with - the concept is fundamentally different, though, and characterize him the ruin of the world. Armageddon in the Christian religion is the place of the final battle between the forces of good and forces of evil at the end of all time. According to biblical tradition, at this point, going to battle all the rulers of the world to engage in battle with the devil and his evil army. The prophecy tells that on this day, along with the devil perish all who harm the earth.
In 1998 in the US was filmed a fantastic orientation called "Armageddon". In accordance with the storyline, the main characters have to destroy a celestial body, to prevent its collision with the Earth. The movie was exciting and interesting, but physicists said that it contains many errors and inaccuracies. So the picture has received many unpleasant and even negative reviews from critics.
After the release of the film Armageddon came to be called the approach of the destruction of humanity in the event of a collision of any heavenly body with the Earth.
Every few years, promise that will happen the end of the world. Scientists calculate the exact date in the calendars of ancient civilizations, e.g., Mayan, believing that they are able to predict the Apocalypse. But what if modern scientists have found only part of the messages of the ancients? What if these calendars do not predict the end of the world? Unfortunately, no one can answer these questions, except for those who have created them.
