After Armageddon

What have past acts of destruction taught us about what will happen to mankind after the apocalypse? Is it inevitable that disaster will someday strike America on an unprecedented level? How has history prepared us? History’s most dramatic events–Hiroshima, 9/11, Hurricane Katrina and others–are examined and analyzed with hard data gathered from their massive aftereffects. The disappearance of water and food supplies, the effects of deteriorated sanitation and health care on the remaining population, and the increased use of violence as a means of survival–all illustrate how societies have responded and survived.

  1. Hello, is anyone out there??? Do you feel like this movie was a warning for us now that we are living in a situation almost like this? The only difference I can see is we still have power.
    Our world is Upside Down, Swirling down the toilet hole. But for now, we still have power.
    We are all basically on rations, as the food level in the stores is getting to be less and less, and people are looting and killing and no one who is supposedly in power seems to want to help stop it.
    Y’all should read those books that William Forstchen wrote, 1. One Second After, 2. One Year After, 3. The Final Day. For they to tell us what to expect if we ever have an EMP, and how hard life will get very quickly.

  2. thegreyone……….why clay and i missed who’s life would have been saved?


  4. I have a problem with the kids never ending supply of batteries for his video camera. 25 years on and it’s still going? Very doubtful.

  5. Willow bark, clay and burdock root would have saved his life.



  8. 1) What exactly could wipe out millions in weeks?
    2) Why is the son smarter than the father when it comes to telling who’s military and who isn’t.
    3) The swine flu killed like 16,000 ppl world wide…16,000 out of 6 billion is hardly a epidemic…more ppl die of AIDS…so how does that make sense?
    4)Why leave an area where you are not infected to go to an unknown area that is more likely to hold this random ass virus?

    these are just question within the first 18 mins.

    • Something new and unexpected could have that affect, he does state it isnt airborne, and it’s easy for a teenage to tell the difference.

  9. This is so fake.

  10. With or without Armageddon, it is still very interesting.

  11. Sensationalist nonsense.

    • Is not nonsense. It may or may not ever happen, but the possibility of it happening and being prepared is wiser than being ignorant to the fact that it very well could happen. Not just with an epidemic. Economic Collapse (which is more likely than not to happen), Nuclear war could cause such circumstances. Solar flares could knock out power grids, which would cause circumstances similar to this scenario. Many different CURRENT affairs could leave us in survival situations like this one. So to say this is Sensationalist nonsense is very ignorant, and unwise.

      • I goofed and responded to the wrong person… sorry! I agree with you!!! Meant to respond to Haven.

      • Focus on what happens post collapse. Not on how the collapse happened, That’s simply not the point. Anyone who paid attention to Katrina knows that these scenarios are highly likely. This film prompted me to lose 150 lbs. It’s only sensationalist to sheep.

      • Agreed.
