10 Apocalypse Movies to Watch With Happy (or at Least Not Totally Depressing) Endings

Current events notwithstanding, Hollywood rather adores imagining the apocalypse on the big screen. Many doomsday movies end with total destruction; that rogue planet is just gonna go ahead and vaporize Earth, or those zombies are just gonna take over forever. But sometimes, filmmakers do find little rays of sunshine…Read more...

Revelation: Why We Must Fight the Lie That God Doesn’t Care

By Aubry Smith Through windows, televisions, and internet portals, my view of the world looks bleak. Conflicts erupt across the globe; protests escalate into riots. The global refugee crisis continues to expand, and injustices in refugee camps call out to us. Shooters invade schools, synagogues, mosques, churches. In my own life, the past few years have seen my mother’s descent into dementia, then her sudden death by cancer, and the suicide of my younger brother. It often feels as if the ...

Advent Assures Us That We Can Survive the End Times

Part of the message of Advent is that we are given the strength, as Christians, to survive the end of the world. That’s quite a feat. Here’s a reminder of just how bad it will get, from one of the Advent readings last year: There will be signs in the sun, the moon, and the stars, and on earth nations will be in dismay, perplexed by the roaring of the sea and the waves. People will die of fright in anticipation of what is coming upon the world, for the powers of the heavens will be shake...

Humanity isn't likely to extinguish itself, writes SETI scientist

Climate change. Pandemics. Nuclear war. While these are undoubtedly devastating realities or possibilities, could they wipe out humanity entirely? Highly unlikely, writes Seth Shostak, senior astronomer for the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI) Institute. From Quartz: A century ago, the Spanish flu caused a staggering 20-50 million deaths, more than WWI. Still, the toll amounted to less than 3% of the world population. As ghastly as it was, the Spanish flu didn’t even rise to t...

Girls, Groupies, and Grim Reapers: The Religious Politics of Mass Response

Following a week at the UN and ensuing climate change “protests” (state-sanctioned, party-approved, media-praised, university-endorsed, “protests”), in which we were yet again treated to another spectacle of a tearful child lecturing adults, Murad Gazdiev presented the excellent critical analysis of climate change eschatology above. We are even called by the media to “confess our climate […]

What She Said: THE BOOK OF M by Peng Shepherd

Today we bring bring back our feature, “What She Said…” in which we both review books that the other has previously read and reviewed. This feature arose because of a very serious dilemma we faced at Casa de Smugglers: what happens when one of us reads and reviews a book that the other desperately wants to read and review? We can’t really post about the same book AGAIN, right? WRONG! Thus, “What She Said…” was born. Last year, Ana read and loved Peng Shepherd’s The Book of M–a post-apocalypti...

Why Advent Looks Forward to the Apocalypse

The Church has a really strange way of preparing us for the joy of the Christmas season. It has us spend much of Advent reading about the end of the world. Consider the gospel reading for the first Sunday of Advent this year: There will be signs in the sun, the moon, and the stars, and on earth nations will be in dismay, perplexed by the roaring of the sea and the waves. People will die of fright in anticipation of what is coming upon the world, for the powers of the heavens will be s...

The Apocalyptic Lessons of Advent

There really are two advents. One is Advent proper, the season we’re in now, when we prepare for Christmas. But during this time, the Church asks us also to keep that other ‘advent’ in mind — the Second Coming of Christ. It’s a jarring juxtaposition. In one coming, we have the baby and the manger, the chorus of angels and shepherds, the three wise men and their gifts. In the other, we can look forward to an actual descent from heaven, the dissolution of the created world, resurrection and judgme...

Debbie Harry and Joan Jett anchor the apocalyptic news for Blondie's 'Doom or Destiny' music video

Last year, when 45 was elected to office, Amanda Palmer told The Guardian that "frightening political climates make for really good, real, authentic art," and that "Donald Trump is going to make punk rock great again." Well, she was right. Blondie's new music video for its song "Doom or Destiny" is a great example. It features Debbie Harry and Joan Jett as cunt mug-carrying anchors for news of the "impending apocalypse:" Described by Debbie Harry as, “The most openly political video Blond...
