Doomsday Dread: The End of Civilization



Phil Torres

Point of Inquiry

Posted: Oct 11, 2016


Phil Torres is an Affiliate Scholar at the IEET. His book is The End: What Science and Religion Tell Us About the Apocalypse. Since the beginning of civilization, people have worried about its collapse. Pockets of people across the world have long warned that the end is near, and as it turns out, their warnings of apocalypse might be closer to the truth than we think. Torres joins Point of Inquiry host Josh Zepps to discuss just how close we are to experiencing catastrophes that have the potential to fuel our demise. With everything from climate change and biodiversity loss to uncontrollable technologies and the greater accessibility of advanced weaponry, Torres predicts that the human race is going to have some major hurdles to overcome if we want to survive the coming century.
