I hope this post will be a part of a series of posts on religions.
One thing which is seeming common among almost all the religions is the notion of eschatology.
A word I didn’t know until I googled and came across these Wikipedia articles:
Almost all religions seem to have this idea of end of times or end of humankind.
Wikipedia does a better job of summarising what every religion predicts, so Imma skip it out.
Almost all the religions also talk about the subsequent beginning of a new era. A new era in which everything is good and peaceful. It is kind of like a reset switch.
Some religions seem to say that current time is in the final epochs where disagreeable (bad things) things are rampant.
|Religion||Name of the current epoch||Characteristics||Final [Y/N]|
|Hinduism||Kali Yuga||maximum adharmam||Y|
|Jainism||avsarpini-Duhsama||Extreme sorrow and misery||Y|
Other religions either don’t have a notion of epochs or I missed it.
I added almost because I am not too sure if wikipedia covers all the religions. I don’t know how many religions we have on this Earth.
