In the past, the apocalypse has been seen as an end to the world as we know. An event that would save those who followed God’s word while condemning those who failed in this task. However, popular culture has appropriated a new interpretation of this Christian event. We will attempt to define the how the apocalypse has been reinterpreted, as well as, how violence from God does not necessarily predict an oncoming apocalypse. With the creation and deployment of nuclear weapons, society has gained the ability to physically view the destructive apocalyptic potential that humanity can cause. Before this, the apocalypse could only be seen through a person’s imagination. This changed has allowed for humanity to see the apocalypse as entirely real and entirely human creation.
