Why do people want to see the world end ? well in the West our Religion ( Christianity ) has taught for 1000's of years that when it happens the good
people go to Heaven and the bad to Hell.
a long time ago i was working at a gas station and there was a group of people talking. they were talking about how excited they were that the world
would be ending soon so that they could go to heaven. one of them even said, "man i can't wait for the world to end so i can get my rewards"
i said, "you won't be going to heaven"
the people in his group gasped and he got red in the face, angry at my words and screamed, "who are you to judge me?"
i said, "i'm not judging you but based on what you just said, you won't be going to heaven. you said, 'i can't wait for the world to end so i can
get my rewards', so basically you are saying you are excited at the prospect of the entire world ending for everyone and everything in it so that you
can get your milkbones. that, my friend is greed and pride and it does you no good service. you need to pray on it."
that pretty much shut him up but the point is i understand exactly what you're saying
