Armageddon came unexpectedly during the night. Both timing and form were surprising. There were no suggestive clues beforehand. Even the scientists admitted being baffled.
"We're quite baffled," they collectively said.
The media was quick to sensationalize.
"Scientists failed us," said the pundits. "We should never have believed them."
The President pointed something out though. "God failed us too," he said.
Failure to believe brought the End. Without belief, there was only chaos.
In truth, collective belief sustained reality.
