Episode 97 of our book read/podcast covering major topics in various fields of psychology moves us into PSYCHOLOGY OF RELIGION! This summer we are going to discuss religion from a psychological and historical perspective as we investigate the evolutionary origins and modern social systems of religion.

In this episode we discuss THE RAPTURE and other apocalyptic events! What happens when the world ends, what happens when predictions are made and then…well nothing. We posit some reasons why people predict and others believe in raptures and end times prophecies, discuss secular variations of them, and muse on Left Behind, Revelations, and other popularized raptures across history.
