We all survived the 2012 apocalypse. We also survived the Rapture on May 21st 2011, the year 2000 end of the world, the Jehovah's witnesses' end of the world prediction in 1975, as well as in 1941. Essentially, the end of the world has been happening since 643 BCE, and so far, the world is still rotating on it's axis and revolving around the sun.
What would our world like to day, after the apocalypse?
That is what philosophers and artists think about. Me? I think about what I am going to make for dinner tomorrow.
