THE REAL HISTORY OF THE END OF THE WORLD will be out on April 6, 2010. In it I talk about how people have viewed the End for the past 5000 years or so. As you might imagine, there were a lot more theories about the End than I could put in the book. So I decided to start a blog to add in people and ideas that I didn’t have room for. I also want to post updates on that (last warnings?) and a lot of the medieval subjects that interest me. Since I firmly believe that there either never was a Middle Ages or that we are still in them, that gives me a lot of scope for comment.
I am also hoping that others will add their thoughts. One thing I can say at the start is that so far, all predictions as to a date for the End have been wrong. I will add more information on other movements. For instance, did you know that Lady Eleanor Davies was more often correct in her prophecies than Nostradamus? He just got more press.
I think my next rant will be on the “documentary” about the guy who went hiking on a remote Pacific island and decided a rock formation was a Mayan ruin built as the prime spot for viewing the end of the 13th baktun.
