Will Earth end on 23rd April? Humans are once again talking about our collective doom thanks to fast-burning news trends fanned by Google and the predictions of self-published author David Meade. Last autumn, Meade’s disputed numerology predicted that Earth would encounter a rogue planet called Nibiru on September 23, 2017.So, he shifted his prediction to last October and then again to November.
Now, British tabloids are reporting that on 23rd April, codes in the Bible suggest the end of the world is imminent, with Earth set to be destroyed, citing Meade as an expert.
Many websites are citing one Bible passage (Revelation 12:1-2) as the evidence: “And a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of 12 stars. She was pregnant and was crying out in birth pains and the agony of giving birth.” They note that the passage refers to the second coming of Jesus Christ (and the beginning of the rapture).
The existence of this distant world is only theoretical at this point and no direct observation of the object nicknamed have been made, reads a web page about Planet Nine from NASA, which makes no mention of any collision or encounter with Earth. The mathematical prediction of a planet could explain the unique orbits of some smaller objects in the Kuiper Belt, the agency noted, but that’s far from Earth, way beyond the orbit of Neptune.
So, we feel safe in saying there will be no apocalypse on April 23. On that cheerful note, since the world isn’t ending this month, it’s best to plan your weekends.
