If you were in the middle of planning your Christmas vacation, don’t bother. That is, unless you are booking a one way trip to the moon, or some planet very far away from Earth. Why? Because the world is ending, again.The Earth, just like Kirk Douglas, cannot seem to escape rumors of an imminent death. At 4.5 billion-years-old (the Earth, not Kirk Douglas) it is safe to say that the planet has seen better days. From hurricanes to wildfires, visible cracks are starting to show, but could the end of the world really be here?
According to Terral Croft, it is. Croft, who appears to have graduated from the same school of crazy as Christian conspiracy theorist, David Meade, has made some damning discoveries, which he claims will see the world obliterated on November 19.In a blog post infested with gibberish, Croft writes: “The predicted backside-alignment quake event is scheduled for November 19, 2017, when Earth passes behind the Sun relative to the Black Star in the Libra Constellation.”
Essentially, what he is trying to say is that the (fictional) planet, Nibiru will cause worldwide earthquakes on November 19. How it will do that is currently a mystery, unless you can decipher Croft’s jargon filled explanation:
“The forecast is to see fluctuating up-down weekly seismic-event values, until global seismic activity reaches a peak in the second two weeks of November moving into December 2017. ‘The historical data points to the chances of seeing one or more 7-magnitude earthquake events coming for Weeks 39-41.”
Christian conspiracy theorist, David Meade predicted the world’s end on September 19. Needless to say, his foresight was a little inaccurate. To try to redeem himself, he then changed the date to October 23. Again, the prophesied end of the world never arrived.
Meade and Croft aren’t alone in their outlandish claims that the world is going to self combust. There have been hundreds of predictions since human life was first established, the most prominent of which being the Mayan prediction that the world would be doomed in 2012.Clearly, all previous predictions were failed.However, there are some upcoming dates to put in your diary if you truly believe that the world will end one day…
If there is one scientific figure that you trust, it is Isaac Newton. The father of the laws of motion and gravity wrote, in an unpublished manuscript, that the world would end in 2060. He later changed this date to 2016, but as the world didn’t end then (despite a shocking amount of high profile celebrity deaths) it is hard to know whether to trust him about 2060.Meanwhile, Canadian philosopher John A. Leslie has predicted that the last humans shall be born in 9120 years and that the world shall perish shortly after.
Whether you believe the predictions or not, it is inevitable that one day this world will end. Our existence will be taught to the children of robots, just like the life of dinosaurs was taught to us. When that day will occur is a mystery, but if you are reading this in the future, where no humans exist, hello and good day!If you enjoy puzzles and books by Dan Brown, then you will be intrigued to learn that hidden within Leonardo Da Vinci’s painting ‘The Last Supper’ is supposedly a clue to the end of the world…
