Yes, half of America believes that the end times are causing natural disasters – The Washington Post

 

 

The one good thing about strange weather is that it can always be used to confirm whatever you believed was going on with the climate. Cold? “Feel that? And they tell us the earth is getting hotter!” Hot? “Feel that? That’s global warming!” Massive storms? “Well, these are the end times.”

Er, wait.

Look at this chart, courtesy of the Public Religion Research Institute. Forty-nine percent of Americans think that, if we are dealing with lots of severe natural disasters, it is because we are living in the end times. (This number is up five points since 2011!)
