Humanity's Obsession with its Destruction

Fear is the most compelling form of folly.

Xenocrates
What is it about the complete and utter destruction of mankind that causes most of us to react with such a uniform sense of paranoia? Despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary, many people around the world were in full on, weaponized panic over the past week, because they were compelled the world was going to end on December 21, 2012. Well it didn't happen—as I had predicted in an earlier post about a similar prophecy that failed to materialize. However, our fear of our destruction has captured our imagination for decades. Just look at the video montage above taken from no less than seven (count them) different movies. Why?

Well, it has to do with our programming.
