The end of the world

Between last week's 666 discussion and now, i've wondered why we focus so much on the end of the world. I just watched a segment of the Sci-Fi presentation, Doomsday: 10 Ways the World Can End. Many hypothesize that the end of the world could be due to nuclear weapons, gamma rays, viral epidemics. It makes me wonder, why are we so focused on how the world might end? To me it's just a little pessimistic, and are there really people out there who want to view why maybe (and when I say maybe, there is a huge emphasis on it, since much of the hypotheses' discuss a minute chance of the doomsday event occuring) the world might end.

Here is a link to the show's premise

I know it's been a common trend in movies such as Armageddon and The Day After Tomorrow, but Sci-Fi goes beyond Hollywood entertainment to give a more credible source of information about possible world destruction factors.

Did anybody else tune into this?
