Fascination with the end of the world-2

It is not the first time and will not be the last time that some people have predicted the end of the world. But in this day and age where technology is changing very fast and the social media is very active, the spread of word about the end of the world circulates faster than anything. Some people get suckered into it and go completely out of their minds, quitting their jobs, giving away their savings and try to recruit other people to their vision of another world and some smart people cash on it and make enough money that they go all the way laughing to the bank. I don’t understand how people can get so much involved in this thing because nobody knows with absolute certainty that the world will come to an end at a certain time. And what if the world comes to an end at a certain time, how are you so sure that you will be the one saved. Some people try to predict the world when they are certainly be alive like not in a distant future and some predict like millions of years beyond their normal human life so that if they are wrong in their prediction at least they would not be around to be embarrassed or humiliated in public. Usually people get suckered because they are not satisfied with their worldly life or can't cope with the worldly pressure and a place where they would not have any worries appeal to them immensely that they are just hypnotized by the end of the world idea. But you can rest assured that you will get another end of the world prediction in the near future and then some people will get suckered and some will become rich feeding on the suckers.
