Will Apocalypse strike “again”? It is predicted on 23rd April

Artist conception of Earth’s Apocalypse

The world will come to an end this year following an apocalypse on Monday.

Conspiracy theories about the end of the world are in the air all the time. Despite an extremely poor track record, people continue to predict apocalypse strikes and clashes that will lead to destruction on our planet. The latest addition to this list has come from David Meade. According to his views, a heavenly body, named as Planet X by him, is approaching towards Earth and a massive collision will take place on 23rd of April.

This planet-like structure is also known as Nibiru among scientific circles. Many people have refuted this idea and the past record of Meade also points in that direction. He initially predicted Nibiru striking the Earth in September last year. The deadline was extended to October which was then postponed to November. David Morrison, a Space Scientist at NASA, neglected even the presence of such a planet. He said,

No, there’s no such thing as a planet called Nibiru. No, it’s not a brown dwarf surrounded by planets, as iterations of the claim suggest. No, it’s not on a collision course toward Earth. And yes, people should get over it.

Meade gave a statement to Daily Express in which he told the world that Nibiru will appear in the sky on 23rd April and this will initiate earthquakes, tsunamis, and volcanoes around the world. As soon as this news came out, humans started to discuss the issue of their collective destruction and the word spread like a fire in a forest. The origin of this theory goes back to 1970s when this conspiracy came forward for the first time.

According to the original beliefs of these conspiracy theorists, this collision was expected in 2003. But, they rescheduled the date to 2012 by saying that some uncooperative cosmos have postponed the fatal clash for now. A lot of people were afraid and this movement got quite a lot of hype in 2012 as a movie was also made on this topic. Different international organizations dealing with astronomy nullified all these rumors. A statement issued by NASA in 2012 said,

Nibiru and other stories about wayward planets are an Internet hoax. 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.”

The basis of all the predictions made by Meade is an alignment of the sun, moon, different planets, and the constellations Virgo and Leo. He relates their positions to a prophecy in the Book of Revelation. The signs mentioned in the Bible are heavily dependent on the number of stars and the count that constitute the constellation Leo is highly uncertain. Astronomers have not managed to extract any accurate information about it.

When Meade was contacted following all the chaos, he told that the world will end sometime between May to December this year. He also disqualified the news that the world will end on 23rd April and called it a fake news. A report from Daily Express did come out which explained the astronomical events that are used by these theorists. It said,

On April 23, the sun and moon will be in Virgo, as will Jupiter, which represents the Messiah. Experts at first dismissed this claim when they discovered this alignment happens every 12 years. However, the conspiracy theories claim another planetary alignment, representing ‘the Lion of the tribe of Judah’, will make this time the Rapture.”

Despite all the rejections from the astronomical world, Meade is stuck to his claim that Nibiru is here and Earth will be prepared for the next event. He also claimed that the unavoidable end of this world will come in the following months when Christ descends from the heavens during the Rapture. He didn’t give any specific date for the Rapture but declared 2018 is the year of its happening. He also explained that the world will suffer from unimaginable horrors for 7 years before coming to its end. Whether he is true or not only time will tell, but one thing that can be said assuredly is that an apocalypse strike is not going to happen on Monday.
