Rumors of the Rapture and the end of the world are outwardly universal today, but conspiracy truth-seekers are forecasting the end of the world once more - in 2017. Author, David Meade claims a dark star called Planet X - also known as Niburu - is hurtling in the direction of and will smash into Earth in October, ending all life as we identify it.
Claims Such This Creates Panic
He stated that there's an "overwhelming" evidence for his philosophy, citing volcanic explosions, earthquakes, sinkholes, and storms. He even transcribes: "The Elite are anxiously building underground 'safety' shelters." Heatwaves are getting tougher and are lasting longer. I'm just coming up for the fat lady to sing!" The details are in his theory book titled 'Planet X - The 2017 Arrival'.
But don't panic, not just yet everyone. NASA has earlier said: "Nibiru and other stories about strong-willed planets are an internet hoax. Apparently, it does not exist."
And there have been several similar apocalyptic forecasts in the past, all of which have confirmed to be anti-climactic. Nibiru was even claimed to be on development to end Earth as recently as 2015.
Many accounts of the catastrophe theory being explained online agree that the event will be a weather catastrophe. Most also say that the climate calamity will be caused by a huge asteroid effect which politicians know about but haven't told us. Many theological theorists uphold the events will prompt the Rapture and the twitch of a seven-year-tribulation.
These philosophies, which are constrained to a tiny minority of house of worship and groups, have been discharged by scientists and are assumed to be well wide of the mark. The Mayan calendar concluded in 2012, which generated plenty of feeling that December 21 of that year would be the end of the world, some twelve years after the Y2K Millennium theory.
