Welcome to THE OBLIVIOUS, the world’s only archive, news wire, and think tank of the apocalypse. We attempt to stay abreast of all the curious manifestations of the end times in our culture.


Apocalyptic thinking evolved through the written word. We’re compiling a library of information and relevant texts. We’ll explore their apocalyptic themes, social and historical contexts, and other tangential revelations.


These longer pieces of analysis, conjecture, or irreverence play with ideas and imagery related to the end times.


Widespread, mutable, contagious—apocalyptic thinking can move like a plague. Browse the Ephemera section for current catastrophes, rapturous art, “bad” news, stirring quotes, and more.
