On her latest album, Lana Del Rey wonders “Is it the end of America?”
While the question posed by the breathy songstress may be more political in nature, a recent prediction of the end of the world by conspiracy theorist David Meade has us feeling surprisingly apocalyptic.
The apparent cause of the end of the world? A solar eclipse with devastating effects coming this September.
Meade, a Christian numerologist, told the Daily Star ‘When the eclipse begins on August 21, the sunrise will be dark, just as Isaiah predicts.’
Some 33 days after the eclipse, on September 23, 2017, Meade predicts the world will end.
According to Meade, the planet Nibiru (also known as Planet X) will collide with Earth and cause the untimely demise of all human beings.
While a solar eclipse would be a stunning denouement, scientists at NASA don’t share Meade’s biblical prediction.
Instead, they’ve teamed up with Star Trek’s very own George Takei to provide their Twitter followers with solar eclipse viewing tips.
Do you remember the 2012 phenomenon that anticipated the end of things? Wikipedia’s own catalogue of dates predicted for apocalyptic events is eerily long.
It seems that humans have been predicting the end of the world since the very beginning. Whether the cause is our own morbid curiosity or fear of the unknown, we’re confident that human beings will continue to predict our fate until the end of time.
So, with the preposed world end fiasco looming on September 23, 2017, how will you be preparing?
Will you be hiding out in an underground bunker à la Kimmy Schmidt? Food shopping for your last meal(s)? Or perhaps scoffing at the idea of yet another doomsday prediction?
