On any subject, in any part of the world, in those 50 years? Because we are again talking about the Second Coming here. It is of global and not strictly local concern or impact. It should be historically evidenced in even non-religious histories. It should be evidenced in contrary religious histories that describe and denounce the supposed occasion. But there is just... nothing. Nobody cared, in other words, not pro or con. How consistent is that reaction to the descriptions Jesus provided? How likely an outcome? That isn't something that can be answered with a wan "nobody was writing down much of anything" as though it were just another neighborhood barbecue that could be forgotten in the shuffle.
