Government agencies around the world are planning for earthshaking catastrophes as an asteroid impact, the zombie apocalypse, and even how to kill giant monsters like Godzilla. We discuss the similarities of these scenarios to apocalyptic prophecies in the Bible, a new interpretation of symbols from the world’s oldest known temple, and DARPA’s plans to change the genetic makeup of American soldiers in the middle of battle.
