The 'Who Believes the End of Civilization is Near?' infographic tells the tale of armageddon worriers. The Mayan calendar ends in 2012, which a number of people have taken to mean that they have made the prediction that the world would come to an end at that point.
However, as the Who Believes the End of Civilization is Near? infographic makes clear, it's hardly the odd person who harbors these doubts. In fact, according to the graphic one in seven people think they will live to see the end of the world. The majority of these people are from Turkey, the United States and South Africa. One in ten believes that they will not only see the world come to an end, but that it will in fact be later this year.
