Despite interpretation of cosmic signs, people have the knack of being incorrect when it comes to predicting the apocalypse. According to a Christian prophecy, 23rd September 2017 was to be the end of the world by the collision of Earth with some another planet or some celestial arrangement destroying everything.
The conspiracy theorists made a claim that some mysterious planet would collide with planet Earth on 23rd September, which would mark the end of life on Earth. Many days later, people are still wondering, ‘what the hell was that claim’.
THE CHRISTIAN PROPHECY
According to a Christian numerologist, David Meade, the Bible has a verse claiming the end of the world to be on 23rd September 2017. The cited verse was in Luke’s passage 21:25-26. The date seems to match the date of arrival of Hurricane Harvey, flooding of Texas and the Great American Solar Eclipse.
The verse talks about some signs given by celestial bodies, the life on Earth being troubled by the sea while the anxiety in people for the future. The date marker from pyramids of Giza, Egypt was used to decipher the date as 23rd September.
The theory of another planet colliding with Earth was refuted vehemently by NASA citing that ‘the planet X’ or planet ‘Nibiru’ as it is named, does not exist or else it would have been visible to the astronomers. The new planet, planet Nine, found by NASA in our solar system does not have anything to do with this.
The mention of Planet X was first written in the book ‘The 12th Planet’ by Zecharia Sitchin. The Christian numerologist said that volcanic eruptions, earthquakes and tsunamis would occur on 23rd September, causing an apocalypse.
THE BOTTOM LINE
David Meade claimed that the world would end on 23rd September. He had said that a new planet, Planet Nibiru, would strike Earth’s surface and lead to cataclysmic events. He had said that his prediction of date 23 was because of the mention of the date in Pyramids of Giza in Egypt.
After the date went by, he rectified his statement and claimed that the world won’t end but the world would drastically change. He based his prediction of the apocalypse on his own perception of the Bible.
Since the date of the apocalypse or doomsday has yet again managed to pass by without making any drastic changes, one can only wonder about the legitimacy of such ‘astronomical, religious and scientific predictions’.
