'Doomsday' has been postponed until October

The man behind this month's doomsday prophecy has pushed the apocalypse back another few weeks.
Unsurprisingly, the world did not end on September 23rd, a date that had been widely publicized both in tabloids and on social media as the day the non-existent planet Nibiru was to collide with the Earth.

Now David Meade, the Christian numerologist who first came up with the prediction based on a rare celestial alignment and its connections to the Bible, has pushed back the date of this alleged 'doomsday' to sometime in October when "the world as [we] know it will end."

"It is possible at the end of October we may be about to enter into the seven-year Tribulation period, to be followed by a Millennium of peace," he wrote.

"When Nibiru is on close approach to Earth sometime during the Tribulation, you'll have solar flares and a possible loss of the electrical grid for weeks, maybe longer. "

As always however, given that there is no evidence whatsoever that Nibiru actually exists, the chances of any sort of apocalyptic scenario occurring next month in relation to it are practically zero.

NASA in particular has been keen to dismiss the entire thing as nonsense.

"Various people are 'predicting' that the world will end [in the near future] when another planet collides with Earth," the space agency wrote. "The planet in question, Nibiru, doesn't exist, so there will be no collision. The story of Nibiru has been around for years (as has the 'days of darkness' tale) and is periodically recycled into new apocalyptic fables."

"Nibiru and other stories about wayward planets are an internet hoax. 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."

In other words - stop worrying, there is no Nibiru and the world is not coming to an end.

At least 10 years I've been reading these planet X, rogue comet, Nibiru, Nemesis, etc. stories on disclose.tv, beforeitsnews.com, etc.   Dozens of the stories.  They only vary in the BS the author decides to put into them and by the fact that the appointed date is always some point in the near future that eventually gets eclipsed with nothing happening. It takes quite an insane level of gullibility to believe the stories posted on these kind of websites.  When it comes to 'fake news', it doesn't get more fake than these kind of stories.

That's dangerous and irresponsible advice.  Staring at the sun for more than a few seconds can caused retinal damage. It's also impossible to stare as something as bright as the sun without blinking for 10 minutes, unless you're undergoing the Ludivoco method and they have you pointed at the sun. I've stupidly looked directly at the sun through a telephoto lens for matter of seconds and I saw stuff that wasn't there.  Multiple visions of the sun in my eyes, wobbly coloured things in my vision, etc. Migraine headaches.  A need to lie down.  No NIbiru though, but I imagine the kind of gullible t...

Hey, you don't have to wait till Christmas. Use the garbage you have now and then put the "body" behind someone's dumpster. Just make sure you wear gloves and sanitize your garbage - that is, make sure there's nothing in it to ID you.

I'm so glad the apocalypse was postponed until the end of October. I was really afraid I was going to miss trick or treating.

There is no plausible way for a planet to do that....Pure science fiction...I think one of the biggest dangers is an approach from the Sun like the Cheblinsky meteor...It came in from the Sun and thats the reason it was not spotted. Planets just do not play hide and seek its not the way it works...Sorry I did not realize how old this thread was.
