We can imagine the grim, final and massive exchange of nuclear fire power and the ensuing world-wide crash in human numbers. We should also add to that the damage done by new epidemics, ones infecting us, our crops and/or our livestock.

So, finally, there would indeed be the much-longed-for "End Times" (or "Qiyamah" to Muslims), the one so eagerly awaited for thousands of years by billions of fanatical believers of the world's old "spirit"-based WV systems. The "missing (Mahdi) leader" or "the Hidden (Shiite) Imam," the Mayan Quetzalcoatl (and midnight 12/21/2012), the Hindu coming of Kalki or Krishna, the Hopi Blue Star (UFO) Kochina, the Next Buddha ("Maitreya"), the cosmic regeneration and reuniting with Mazda, the Messiah of Judaism, and a returning Christ would all be seen looming through the mists.

But it would all be mere illusion. Instead of a vast panorama of awesome specters parading to our rescue, there would be nothing except sulfurous smoke, radiation, and the few surviving members of our now depleted race. Even they would all be divided still by the same old religions, each still claiming to be "the Truth" and "the Light" but in a world that had suddenly and dramatically become darker. The faithful would have all been wrong again. No Anti-Christ would have arisen from the ground "speaking like dragons," and "those who do not love God would not have had their candle sticks torn away from them" (Rev 2:4-5). The stars would not have fallen from the Heavens, the people would not have become more righteous, and there would be no Peace on Earth---just devastation.

In short, no "god" would have saved us. All that is if we use only a few of the world's some fifteen thousand nuclear bombs . . (from Chapter 18 of Destiny & Civilization," the Atheistic Science Institute - home page* *)

@charles brough,
We had a similar sort of discussion here before, about the "End Times" and how the faithful perceive it. It's more than a little sad and pathetic, (and in many ways, downright disgusting and horrifying,) that the religious want Armageddon (or whatever other version of the End Times) to happen, simply because they long for God (Christ, what-have-you,) to come down out of Heaven and prove to the whole world that hey, indeed these religious folks were telling the truth after all. What they do not understand is that a belief that is not justifed in and of itself is not justified at all.
