Hurricanes, wild fires, earthquakes, mud slides, Tornado, Flooding, extended power outages from blizzards, or ice storms, all of these figure into the prepper mind set.

Also Argentina, and Venezuela also appeared to be doing well till they suddenly were not.

The essence of prepping is to try and not be caught completely off guard, nobody can 100% predict the apocalypse and nobody can 100% plan for the apocalypse all you are trying to do is slant the odds in your favor. Then hope mother nature is not going to throw a curve ball at you.

Every Government that has been has fell and turned to dust .
What we call Civilization its self has fallen and rose many times in 20,000 years .
The preppers are not wrong but are Unprepared . No one will be when this latest version of civilization falls they believe they can hid out a week or month some plan for up to 5 years but as history shows when these falls happen they last 100s of years .
The Bible talks of the meek inheriting the earth what this means is the ones how hid the best who will eat darn near anything who will and are ready to run at the slightest threat .
Hiding in a hole even with 100 guns and 1000 cases of food is just a grave .

We ( humans know this even instinctively we know ) Because its not just Country's and civilizations that have going to dust it is who epocs of earths Living history that have going to dust .
The Geological time periods of earth have come and going
All these erars are dust what makes you think Humans are so special we along will escape our extinction ?

It may be Nuks it may be a rock with earths name on it it may be a sun flare
or it may be something as simple as DUST as the solar system moves through a nebula and teh suns light is cut by 100s of factors and earth becomes a ice ball for million of years .
It has happened and will happen again .
BUt I am sure you think more of the today and tomorrow we my friend you start dieing the day you are born and no amount of prepping will stay the dred reaper .

Zombie apocalypse is not real

Compared to 10 yrs ago, there's so much more homeless people on the streets in the towns I frequent both east and west coast, and malls look like ghost towns with so many storefronts perpetually vacant for rent for months on end. I don't know what a full blown economic collapse looks like (Zombie apocalypse) but in 10 years I would say most towns in USA i've frequented look 'collapsed' compared to how they looked 10 yrs ago, esp the occupancy of commercial venues and behavior of civilians around them.

As for the other 2 criteria (Armageddon and Jesus) those are purely Abrahamic imo so I digress.

Godspeed, world!

Zombie apocalypse is not real

I think this was added to the Armageddon list after software developers started producing the gamut of First-person shooter games.

For some reason the account at Matthew 27:52-53 makes people also believe in this zombie apocalypse. The account below is right after Jesus dies.

"and the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised; and coming out of the graves after His resurrection, they went into the holy city and appeared to many." - KJV

Some people believe these were zombies. The passage doesn't mention the dead calling out the need to eat brains.

I think everyone who is prepping, waiting for the economic collapse, or waiting for the second coming of Jesus will be long dead and gone before it ever happens.

A lot of us who prep seriously hope we NEVER need it.

But, just like you buy medical insurance, or home insurance, it's nice to have some piece of mind.

Last year, we got hit by Hurricane Irma. The eye rolled right over us at Category 2 strength. The entire state was out of power for at least 2 days, most places for about 5 days (us included).

Being prepped helped us immensely. First off, we have a very sturdy barn, so we were a refuge for many who had to leave, but needed their animals to be safe. We had almost 50 total animals here at the ranch. With no power, we also had no running water (we are on a well). But, due to preps, we were fine, even for water for all of these animals (like cats, dogs, horses, even a monkey and a pig).

Also due to preps, we had plenty of wall mounted candles for light in the house, we had to THAW food to cook, even on day 4 of the outage, and still kept in touch with loved ones, etc. (and no generator).

So, being prepped isn't always about being ready for the end of the world. Sometimes, it's just nice to know you can easily weather an event that may disrupt your life for a week or more.

Some of it is also just about being more self reliant, especially in a rural area. Having our own eggs from our own chickens, or our own veggies from our garden, etc., it's just reassuring, and healthier really. I can't wait to add more, and have fruit trees, etc.
