A Christian numerologist says we're all about to die, but just a few days before he changed his mind quite a bit about the issue.
Sorry folks, you’re all going to die, according to a Christian numerologist. But there’s good news, as it appears he’s changed his mind and things aren’t as dire as they seem. But hey, at least he got his 15 minutes of a fame out of it in the end.
His name is David Meade, and his prediction that the Earth would end on Sept. 23 when “Planet X” came flying past the Earth causing the apocalypse and ushering in the second coming of Christ got him lots of media attention. However, since Sept. 23 has come and gone, he’s forced to come up with another explanation like all other end-times prophets.
Meade says that Hurricane Harvey and the solar eclipse were indicators that the apocalypse was nigh, based on these verses from Luke 21:25-26 “There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea. People will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken. 26: Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.”
It’s based on a rehashed theory called the Nibiru cataclysm, which was invented by actual crazy people but adopted by end-times Christians hoping to find some way to finally correctly identify the time when the world will end. Fortunately, he joins a long line of prophets who proved to be wrong.
