After getting Doomsday wrong twice last year, end-times conspiracy theorist David Meade claims that the end of the world is slated for April 23. Why exactly then?
Meade claims that on Apr. 23, 2018, Jupiter, the moon and the sun will be aligned within the constellation Virgo to allow the elusive planet Nibiru or Planet X make a much-anticipated appearance.
The serial predictor links the event with the start of the World War 3 and the seven years of Tribulation along with the ascension of the Antichrist. Meade bases his claims on Biblical passages from the Bible.
- The conspiracy theorist thinks that planet Nibiru is the “great sign [which] appeared in heaven” before the Tribulation in Revelation (12:1–2).
- The “woman clothed in the sun, with the moon under her feet” is constellation Virgo in the same passage, according to Meade.
NASA Dismisses Recent Conspiracy Theories
NASA, on the other hand, had repeatedly dismissed these Doomsday scenarios. The space agency insists that Nibiru or the “Death Planet” is not real. What’s more, many end-times predictors have gotten the date of the Apocalypse wrong in recent years.
However, conspiracy theorists are adamant about their recent interpretation of the events. They believe that another end-of-times biblical event, the Rapture, started in November.
Not even the fact that such alignments are not rare has deterred doomsayers. Meade claims that the alignment which happens every 12 years will be followed by un unprecedented alignment which will mark the real beginning of the Rupture.
In an article published on his blog earlier this year, he claims that all true Christians will vanish mysteriously in a worldwide event called the Rupture. After that event, the Antichrist will make an appearance along with Niburu and the start of another global conflagration.
