What's so scary is that there are a lot of people who are strangely enough hoping he's right. There are a lot of people who are seemingly happy for the world to end. Yet no one seems to have an answer as to why they feel this way.
There's a question that rises. For those who want the world over, why haven't those people tried to make the world a better place?
i.e instead, those who have spent tons of money on banners, billboard posters for the prediction, they should have spent that money on homeless, sick, and starving children.
