There's always been good business predicting the end of the world. The "end" of the "world" is pretty badly defined by most supernatural predictions.
The rapture, for instance, is really just the beginning of the end, and signals civilisation being sent back to the Stone Age for a bit while The
Chosen are whisked up to heaven. Meanwhile, predictions of the end of the world in 2012 were wide-ranging, from a comet just tearing Earth in half
(the rest of the universe spinning on as usual) to the complete and total end of everything ever. The latter is less scary because it's not like
anything will be around afterwards to care.
In the case of some of the science-based predictions for how the universe will go on according to our knowledge of physics, there's no "end" as such.
Matter and energy still exist, but in their lowest energy and most uniform state: the rub being that this state precludes the interactions needed to
produce emergent structures. This includes stars, planets, and intelligent entities capable of experiencing the universe.
...This is from Rational Wiki and there is a list of past and future predictions which I think it`s of interesting Reading.
Predictions for the following years are as follows:
2014: World War III, resurrected Nostradamus prophecy of a fire in the North for the reference of the end of the age of the fifth sun, believed to
be a specific Northern region of a country, current speculation is North Korea, as relative to the resolution of a Pope prediction.
Unspecified time during the reign of Pope Francis, the pope succeeding Benedict XVI. Mediaeval Saint Malachy supposedly predicted Peter the Roman
(Petrus Romanus) would be the last pope, Rome would be destroyed and a terrible judge would judge his people, The end. Doomsayers have already
started shoehorning the new pope into the prediction.
2018: Hal Lindsey: Second Coming.
2028: Fred Clark: A tongue-in-cheek offer guaranteeing 15 years of Bible-prophecy hucksterism for four easy payments of $39.99.
2030: Approximate date of a mass extinction event predicted by Bob Geldof. Myles Allen, of Oxford University claims "Competing hyperbole" are
unhelpful in understanding real climate change. 
2036: More asteroids.
2037: Hal Lindsey: Third Coming.
2038: Deteteoration of the fundamental older technology that still underlies the most crucial systems today.
2040: Even more asteroids.
2039: End of life, the universe and everything. Also known as the Ascension.
Ok, 2039 is the end of life, the universe and everything, but then comes more asteroids in 2040 and much more coming, lol
This prediction "business" sure is funny
