No real life examples are allowed here ''because'' of the high standard of proof such a group has to have to be considered such in RealLife (note that all of the above include ''extensively documented'' murders/suicides done with the apocalyptic religion as a sole motive. Also note that none of the groups above exist anymore, enough that documentary journalism, investigations by authorities, and other objective proof has entered the record regarding them) and that the definition is maddeningly subjective in the absence of such ironclad proof. Nevertheless, if you are in a religious group and it tends to have a very high emphasis on the end times, the end of the world, escaping the world, and the like, it's likely a good idea to start questioning your involvement, and if you find yourself being told to hurt/kill others or yourself, it's likely time to [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere get out as soon as possible]] and inform someone who can do something to stop a tragedy. See our [[UsefulNotes/{{Abuse}} Useful Notes page on Abuse]] for more information.
