don’t you think it’s only natural for humans to predict, explain and wait for some god-awful event in the human history of mankind to wipe the slate clean? or better yet,
to wait for a savior, a messiah, the “one”, etc... to
deliver man from his own evils? I think it’s perfectly natural but not plausible

We do seem to be wired that way. Such a thing could not be explained evolutionarily -- natural catastrophic disasters of the magnitude expected are not survivable, nor would they happen enough to establish a pattern by selective pressure.

It's the way we've been made.
