Here we go again...

Postby bookworm » Fri Sep 22, 2017 12:38 pm

So apparently the world is ending tomorrow? I'm just hearing about this now; really short notice compared to all the coverage Harold Camping got in May and August 2011.

Some alleged 'researcher' named David Meade has been saying on September 23rd some constellation will appear over Jerusalem and then a planet called Nibiru will collide with Earth. His proof is that tomorrow is 33 days after the total solar eclipse and "Jesus lived for 33 years. The name Elohim, which is the name of God to the Jews, was mentioned 33 times [in the Bible]. It's a very biblically significant, numerologically significant number. I'm talking astronomy. I'm talking the Bible ... and merging the two."

Now that the date is upon us he has 'clarified' his prediction and said tomorrow is not immediately the apocalypse, but it is when the prophesies in Revelation will happen and launch a series of catastrophes that I guess start the beginning of the end. "The world is not ending, but the world as we know it is ending. A major part of the world will not be the same the beginning of October."

It seems awfully convenient to predict a series of catastrophes beginning in the middle of an already-violent hurricane season. :| How long has he been predicting this?

We seem to still be here, but there are still a few hours left in a few time zones.

My AC died again. Does that count as a soft start to the apocalypse?

I too thought this was suspect timing, but his book was apparently published in 2016 so he's not just capitalizing on these hurricanes he's been at this a while. It's just the media coverage that's picked up suddenly since the day is now here.

Additional information on what exactly he claimed is happening now:
After Nibiru collided with Earth (which I don't think ended up happening, unless I somehow missed it) a series of great catastrophies kicks off until on October 15th we enter a seven year Tribulation. Somewhere along the way the Rapture might happen; he seems noncommittal on that part.

It's almost like a holiday by now. Maybe it should become a national thing and schools get off. That would be fun.

I just saw that after apocalyptic catastrophies failed to occur in October this guy had started saying April 23rd would actually be it for real this time, but then said actually nevermind just a few days before. (I don't know what's more surprising, that he walked back his claims yet again or that nothing ended up happening again.) (Everything in the previous parentheses was complete sarcasm, to be clear.)

Here's what he's saying now:
Nibiru is here (I guess he forgot about the part where it was supposed to smash into the Earth and it's just floating around instead, it's interesting no one anywhere has noticed a giant new planet in the sky) but it turns out that didn't actually cause the end of things it just marks the end coming soon or something. We're now looking for not an apocalypse, but the Second Coming and Rapture, which will happen sometime between May and the end of the year. I wonder why he can't give a day anymore and just has a seven month window.

I'm glad it didn't happen, because I was out taking a road trip, and my ride broke down like a month later and I never would have gotten it fixed if I didn't have a shop to take it to. :-

I just can't believe this same guy is still at this and thinks anyone would give him any amount of credibility. He's worse than Harold Camping was! At least Camping had a story and stuck to it. He changed the date once when the first came and went, but his claim of what was going to happen was consistent.

But this guy is all over the place. Not only changing the dates, a ton of times, but fundamentally changing his story of what even is supposed to be happening.
  • September 23 will be the end of the world, everything will be destroyed by the arrival of Nibiru.
  • A few days before Sep 23: This isn't actually going to be the end, it's the start of a series of catastrophies. "A major part of the world will not be the same the beginning of October."
  • After Sep 23: Nibiru is here, but the catastrophies don't actually start just yet, October 15th will begin a seven year Tribulation of disasters. The Rapture will possibly occur sometime during this, then it's the end.
  • A few months later: Nevermind about the Tribulation, April 23rd will be the end of the world, everything will be destroyed by some catastrophic event.
  • A few days before Apr 23: Nothing will actually happen this week, it will be later, and when it does happen it's not actually going to be the end, it's the start of a series of events like before but with a different order than originally announced.
  • Now: The Rapture is happening between next month and the end of the year, then a seven year Tribulation begins. But after this Christ establishes a 1,000 year reign of peace. "So the world isn't ending anytime soon - in our lifetimes, anyway."
