We’ve got a pretty outlandish conspiracy theory for you and I’m not sure if you’re going to believe it. But if you do, you probably don’t want to make any plans for September… or the rest of your life to be honest because apparently the earth is set to be destroyed next month.

It’s all to do with a rare total solar eclipse where the moon will cover the sun on August 21st. More than half the planet will be able to see the once in a lifetime event, titled the ‘Great American Total Solar Eclipse’.
Although this sounds like a wondrous event, a group of Christian fanatics reckon that the eclipse will cause the end of the world and will be one of the prophesised 10 Biblical plagues. Yeah, I’m guessing you’re probably already writing this off as total rubbish, but let’s hear them out.
Now a leading voice in the ‘Nibiru Cataclysm’ movement – David Meade – has suggested it’s proof that a mythical alien planet (Nibiru or Planet X) will destroy life on earth with a devastating strike. David, who describes himself as an ‘amateur stargazer and Christian numerologist’, said:
The Great American Eclipse of August 21, 2017, is a major – huge – harbinger.
When the eclipse begins on August 21, the sunrise will be dark, just as Isaiah predicts.
The Moon involved is called a black moon.
These occur about every 33 months. In the Bible, the divine name of Elohim appears 33 times in Genesis.
The eclipse will start in Lincoln Beach, Oregon – the 33rd state – and end on the 33rd degree of Charleston, South Carolina.
Such a solar eclipse has not occurred since 1918, which is 99 years – or 33 times three.
David reckons that the end of the world will start on September 23rd, at which point Nibiru will appear in the sky.
OK, so clearly David is adamant that this Nibiru planet is legit (despite the fact that NASA have confirmed that there is no evidence for its existence) and he is sure that a Biblical apocalypse is upon us. Not being funny Dave, but nutjobs – I mean “experts” – have been predicting the end of the world for centuries, with far sturdier arguments than this. I’m just not buying it – although I guess I’ll be eating my words if his wild predictions come true.
Anyway, it is far likelier that the end of the world will come from a manmade disaster. Just take a look at what would happen if every nuclear weapon on earth is launched. It doesn’t look good.
