    Meet America's 3 million Doomsday Preppers.

    One couple living in fortress with stockpile of guns and 25,000 rounds of ammunition (just in case!)

    Man keeps 1,000 fish in his swimming pool so he has plenty to eat in the event of the apocalypse



    There was once a time when preachers standing on street corners predicting the apocalypse would have been deemed crazy.
    Shoppers would cross the street to avoid the archetypal banner-waving man loudly proclaiming 'the end of the world is nigh.'

    Today, however, it seems we're not quite so convinced that the rantings aren't actually prophecies for a doom-laden future.
    As many as three million Americans now fall into the category dubber 'preppers' - people who are making detailed plans for the end of the world as we know it.

    The preppers are an ever-growing group of survivalists who take extreme measures to prepare for a major catastrophic event.

    One man from Phoenix keeps 1,000 tilapia fish in the deep end of his swimming pool which he plans to eat when a massive solar flare 'knocks civilisation back to the Stone Age.'
    While a couple living in a gated-home with 25,000 rounds of ammunition have enough food to last half a century.

    More than 300,000 people a month visit the movement's website, survivalblog.com, which catalogues how people are preparing for the worst.
    The website has been set up by James Rawles, a former US Army intelligence officer, who is one of the movement's leading figures.


    Speaking to The Times, he said: 'Should the worst happen, it's become apparent that the Government can't provide for everybody. And now that realisation is becoming more widespread.'

    Events such as the recession, 9/11 and Hurricane Katrina has added to the growth of the movement.
    The Red Cross has also reported an increase in the number of people learning first aid.
    The group is now the focus of a new reality TV show on the National Geographic channel called Doomsday Preppers which will be broadcast in Britain later this year.

    The programme features Megan Hurwitt from Houston who practices fleeing the city by foot in case of an oil crisis.
    ---
    Tim Ralston, an ex-military man living with his family in Arizona, is one of many ‘Doomsday Preppers.’ His garage is full of food, water purifiers, weapons, and a trailer full of essentials ready to be hooked up to the family car should disaster strike.
    About once a week, he takes his two sons out to the dessert for target practice. His one son has been practicing with an AK-47.

    ‘You just never know,’ he told ABC News. ‘God put you on this Earth for certain things, and for me, it’s to make sure my family lives and I can help other people.’
    Among his stockpiling are water purifiers, a vast array of artillery, and canned chicken that is good for 15 years.

    ‘These are not just a handful of people living in the mountains,’ National Geographic Channel’s executive vice president of programming Michael Cascio told the Wall Street Journal. ‘They’re everywhere.’
    Robert Vicino, a real estate agent, is garnering a significant profit from the fears by building luxury bunkers.
    ABC News profiled Mr Vicino while he was in the midst of converting a Cold War bunker into a high-end escape pod, with many of the units already sold.

    Meanwhile, Family Radio president Harold Camping has incorrectly predicted the end of the world for decades.


    The Christian radio broadcaster said it would come to an end first in 1988, then again in 1994, and twice in 2011 – once in May and the other time in October.
    None of them, obviously, came to fruition.


    But the Bible Guaranteed it .

    Wow - talk about a DESPERATE attempt to insult Americans...

    Here's a heads-up for your little pasty self. There have ALWAYS been end-times nuts, and they're EVERYWHERE.

    On top of this many people are raving about the 2012 Mayan Calendar ordeal.
    Let me explain to all people who believe this theory. This theory is false, it is idiotic. The Mayan calendar ended here because they had no more room on this calendar. At the end of every calendar the Mayans would have a celebration and build a new one. This is just a stupid beliefs that will unfortunately cause injury, belligerence, and even suicides.

It just seems to be a guideline of how to be a 'good person', with all of the extra promises that come after death being an incentive to be a 'good person'.
    Absolutely Jango; religion is all about punishment and reward, and fear of retribution from some nebulous super-being if you're naughty and don't behave with absolute allegiance. Bribery-pure and simple.
    The really sad thing is how many millions still believe in that Bronze Age tripe.

    Is not the state of Wyoming in the middle of legislation preparing for an 'end of the world as we know it' scenario?

    Would we be any worse off with anti-hypocrisy laws on the books to go along with our McCarthy era phrase in our pledge; it could be perceived as a form of moral absolutism and consistent with our true witness bearing in advertising laws.
