According to Pat Robertson, the apocalypse may be coming this Sunday. Yep, this Sunday. He based his prediction on biblical numerology, and complicated readings of US and mid-east history. And Robertson isn't the only one with an ear trained on the end of the world. Weekend America Reporter Krissy Clark tracked down several doomsday watchers to get their perspective, from the religious variety to a scientist who tracks asteroids to a man who thinks peak oil will bring on the end of the world as we know it.

    Oh no. Oh no no no no NO! First of all, where was this prediction before 2013? I wouldn't be surprised if this person believe in the 2012 apocalypse and once it was proven wrong, he tried to look for a new one. Secondly, what exactly will end the world? Nobody ever really says so. Finally, this Sunday? Really? That's a pretty close date.
