As much as I love The History Channel, I really can't take all of their programs at face value. They are meant to entertain first and educate second. That's how they keep you coming back for more.
So many of us romance doomsday...it's a better device for profiting off of entertainment I think.
If the world is turned into a stone with a giant sheet of glass over its surface...hey, we're all dead so no big deal.
