    Y2K, bird-flu pandemic, global warming, Mayan Calender smucks, Bible prophecy nuts, fallout shelter builders in the 1950s, or others?

    IMO - Y2K and its not close.

    The closest doomesday on my list was the Cuban Missle Crises in 1962.

    That was a close one. Not sure how much fallout shelters (most of govt ones had no provisions) or duck-and-cover would have helped.

    What time does the Doomesday Clock have now?

    Bible nuts deserve the longevity badge. They've been pushing the doctrine of Armageddon/End Days Prophecy for centuries, with certain sects trying and failing to assign hard dates along the way. Plus, there's still a bunch of 'em waiting for the long anticipated Second Coming.

    Yep, my vote is for the Christians.

    Show me a present day doomsday tradition with an origin preceding that of the Judeo/Christian tradition.

    Eastern religions, while much older, generally push an eternally cyclical view of the cosmos.

    true, but a doomsday event or drastic change is part of that cycle..
