Yes, catastrophes can and do happen. One of the cultish aspects of Christianity is controlling people through a fear of "The Day of Judgment", both personally and collectively. The dread of such things goes all the way back to the Egyptian Book of the Dead and the Pyramid Texts (and beyond). Sadly, we have more to fear from other human beings than we do from the violent universe.
