No, the world is not going to end on April 23

Warnings of another end of the world scenario involving the planet Nibiru have been doing the rounds this week.
According to reports, a pair of planetary alignments involving the non-existent planet will signal the beginning of the biblical Rapture on April 23 and bring about the end of life as we know it.

Interest in Nibiru, which has been connected to various doomsday prophecies over the last two decades, began in 1995 after Nancy Lieder, founder of the website ZetaTalk, claimed that extraterrestrials from the Zeta Reticuli star system had warned her of an impending collision.

Since then there have been multiple 'doomsdays' involving Nibiru, but as evidenced by the fact that we are still here to talk about it, every single one of these has turned out to be bogus.
There is absolutely no reason at all to believe that this time will be any different.

"The story of Nibiru has been around for years (as has the 'days of darkness' tale) and is periodically recycled into new apocalyptic fables," NASA wrote.

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

"There is no factual basis for these claims."

What that article does not tell you is who is making the claim.....If anyone has done any research at all into this its pure bogus BS! The claim is being made by none other than David Meade! Which is not his real name by the way. http://www.foxnews.com/science/2018/04/11/biblical-prophecy-claims-rapture-is-coming-april-23-numerologist-says.html The guy has had so many failed claims I don't see why people continue to feed into his BS! He writes a lot of articles over on Planet X News and if you would like to check them out the link is below: http://planetxnews.com/meade/ He also has hood winked... [More]

They are not going to as long as they can hood wink the gullible masses into buying this ridiculous junk. There is big money in Doomsday and it does not matter if it's true or not.....Throw in a couple Bible verses such as Meade does and they fall for it hook line and sinker. No where in the Bible is there a mention of any Planet X/Nibiru. Many associate Wormwood with (PlanetX/Nibiru) but Wormwood was not a planet at all it was a star......or some believe an angel. Wormwood is only mentioned once in the Book of Revelations 8:10...Its associated in the Bible with turning the water bitter and ha... [More]
