Aren’t ready to pay your taxes on April 17? Have no fear – there’s a doomsday prophet that says the world will be ending soon anyway.
Christian conspiracy theorist David Meade is back with another apocalyptic prediction, this one suggesting the world’s demise will begin later this month. Meade’s is predicting the often-discussed-but-never-proven Planet X, also referred to as Nibiru, will show up April 23, signaling the start of the end of days. Planet X will pass the Earth in October, touching off all sorts of mayhem and the eventual expiration of the Earth.
Meade’s theory traces its roots back to the Biblical passages of Revelation 12:1-2, which refers to a “great sign appearing in heaven,” and a “woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head. She was pregnant and cried out in pain as she was about to give birth.”
On April 23, the sun, moon and Jupiter will align in Virgo, with the constellation representing the woman in the Biblical passage, Meade said. Planet X’s appearance represents the “great sign” prophecy.
“During this time frame, on April 23, 2018 the moon appears under the feet of the Constellation Virgo. The Sun appears to precisely clothe Virgo… Jupiter is birthed on April 08, 2018. The 12 stars at that date include the nine stars of Leo, and the three planetary alignments of Mercury, Venus and Mars – which combine to make a count of 12 stars on the head of Virgo. Thus the constellations Virgo, Leo and Serpens-Ophiuchus represent a unique once-in-a-century sign exactly as depicted in the 12th chapter of Revelation. This is our time marker,” Meade said.
Meade first predicted the world would end last spring and then moved that back to September and later October 2017.
While U.S. space agency NASA has avoided end-of-world Biblical discussions, it has weighed in on Planet X/Nibiru.
“Nibiru and other stories about wayward planets are an internet hoax,” NASA said in a Q&A on doomsday theories. “There is no factual basis for these claims. If Nibiru or Planet X were real and headed for an encounter with the Earth…astronomers would have been tracking it for at least the past decade, and it would be visible by now to the naked eye. Obviously, it does not exist.”
The answer? Check back in on April 24…
