At this point, I expect the world to "end" because of all those eagerly awaiting & actively courting Jesus' return. What is the theory? If things are bad enough, he'll come down to rescue the believers? If I was god I would be pretty pissed to see what my believers had turned the Earth into. "I gave you this beautiful planet... and you destroyed it because money was worth more to you?" That's the judgment I would be afraid of!
