Be Prepared for anything really. It is nt just these DoomsDay predictions. It is the simpler more devastating things you should also consider. However these things are a great way to prepare for the more mundane events.
As the last century drew to a close, many people grew concerned that computers might bring about doomsday. The problem, first noted in the early 1970s, was that many computers would not be able to tell the difference between 2000 and 1900 dates. No one was really sure what that would do, but many suggested catastrophic problems ranging from vast blackouts to nuclear holocaust.

minister Ronald Weinland, the end times are upon us. His 2006 book "2008: God's Final Witness" states that hundreds of millions of people will die, and by the end of 2006, "there will be a maximum of two years remaining before the world will be plunged into the worst time of all human history. By the fall of 2008, the US will have collapsed as a world power, and no longer be an independent nation." the book notes, "Weinland places his reputation on the line as the end-time prophet of God."
In case the Y2K bug didn't do us in, global catastrophe was assured by Richard Noone, author of the 1997 book "5/5/2000 Ice: the Ultimate Disaster" (Three Rivers Press).

Perhaps global warming kept the ice age at bay.
Joseph Smith, founder of the Mormon church, called a meeting of his church leaders in February 1835 to tell them that he had spoken to God recently, and during their conversation he learned that Jesus would return within the next 56 years, after which the End Times would begin promptly.
