You said: "eschatology and milleniarism
is a genre of religious literature peculiar to jewish tradition in prophecy." I respinded that it is not at all peculiar to the jewish tradition as it has spread to Christianity. I could also have noted the Mayan concept of the Katun, much of which was made leading up to 2012, even if tey used a different number system As you could have said Judeo-Christain Tradition I took it that you did mean 'peculiar to the Jewish tradition.

Now that I think of it, Norse mythology and the 'Twilight of the Gods' Is a similar eschatology, perhaps again not millenerian. According to The Viking Answer Lady Norse speakers did use a base 10 counting system.
