THIS AND THAT michelle cahill Are you ready for it?
SO THE end of the world was supposed to have happened on Saturday. Hmm. How come I’m still here? Did I honestly do so many bad things that I’ve been left behind? Really, that is a rhetorical question.
According to doomsday theorist David Meade, the planet Nibiru, or otherwise known as Planet X, was meant to wipe us out on Saturday.
A few years ago, Nasa senior space scientist David Morrison debunked an apocalyptic claim as a hoax.
No, there’s no such thing as a planet called Nibiru, he said. No, it’s not a brown dwarf surrounded by planets, as iterations of the claim suggest. No, it’s not on a collision course towards Earth. And yes, people should “get over it”.
But the claim added to it the precise date of the astronomical event leading to Earth’s destruction.
And that, according Meade, was supposed to be September 23 2017. Unsealed, an evangelical Christian publication, foretells the Rapture in a viral, four-minute YouTube video, complete with special effects and ominous doomsday soundtrack. It’s called September 23 2017: You Need to See This.
Meade’s prediction is based opinion (and remember we see ‘through a glass darkly’), will begin in the latter part of October of 2017. Not the end of the world, but the end of days as prophesied in the Bible. The world is not going to end but, as I’ve stated before to reporters, ‘the world as you know it will end’. It will change. Normalcy bias will cease.”
He goes on to say that the major signs that converge on September 23 are “indeed amazing, but those are celestial events”.
“They are time markers. The mainstream media states that something visible will occur on these dates. I don’t believe that. The actual event of the beginning of the Tribulation occurs on October 15. That’s when the action starts. Hold on and watch – wait until the middle of October and I don’t believe you’ll be disappointed.”
This is not the first time we have had predictions that the world would end on such and such a date and it will not be the last.
The big question is: Are we ready for it? I’m not going to get all preachy and stuff, but we need to right our wrongs as far as possible – and not just because we think the world is going to end.
We need to do it because a.) We might not get another chance and b.) It is just the right thing to do.
