Repent! The End Is Near!

I am glad it is the weekend…..the news has become mundane, redundant and juvenile….it is getting hard to find stories of interests to report back to my readers.  The weekend allows me to back away and think of anything but the playground mentality of world affairs.

Saturday and my weekend begins and the end of the world is the furthest thing from my mind.

But just when I was expecting to write about something cool or interesting I spot this piece about the world ending today.

Continuous Storms, heavy rains, earthquakes, fires, mud slides all seems a bit much.   Does the end approach?

Best I can say is report what I read……

If you had big plans this weekend, David Meade regrets to inform you that the world will be ending Saturday. Meade, a Christian numerologist and self-described “researcher,” says Sept. 23 is foretold in the Bible’s Book of Revelation as the day a series of catastrophic events will begin, and as a result, “a major part of the world will not be the same,” the Washington Post reports. The Bible prophecies a woman “clothed with the sun” and a “crown of 12 stars” giving birth to a boy who will “rule all the nations” while she fights off a seven-headed dragon. The woman, Meade says, is the constellation Virgo, which on Saturday will be positioned under nine stars and three planets, per Popular Mechanics. The baby boy will be the planet Jupiter, which will be moving out of Virgo on that night.

According to Meade, who says he studied astronomy at an unspecified university in Kentucky, the great change in our world will be the result of the arrival of Nibiru, a planet famous in conspiracy circles but which astronomers say doesn’t exist. David Morrison, a senior space scientist at NASA, says that if Nibiru were really on a collision course with Earth, we would have seen it by now. “It would be bright,” he says, per the Post. “It would be easily visible to the naked eye.” But that’s not dissuading Meade, who points to the fact that Sept. 23 falls 33 days after last month’s total solar eclipse as proof of his prophecy. “Jesus lived for 33 years. The name Elohim, which is the name of God to the Jews, was mentioned 33 times [in the Bible],” Meade says. “It’s a very biblically significant, numerologically significant number.”

Let’s end there…..if all goes to plan then tomorrow will not matter……

My guess is that I will see you guys bright and early Sunday….

  1. These precisely dated prophecies irritate me, because they seem to be based on our modern calendars. Many centuries ago, there were 13 months in a year, so even the Zodiac signs are not strictly accurate, and averaged out. Our modern calendar is different in various religions, and some countries still use ancient calendars in official dates. So what is really September 23rd? It is just a convenient invention, mostly to regulate working hours, train times, and other functions of an industrial society. It also varies, depending on which part of the international datelines you live in. So by the time you wake up, I should already be dead, and all of Asia and Australia would have been dead the previous day.
    Dates worked out from The Bible rely on modern translations, most of which date from 1604, and the King James Bible. So we only have that information to go on, and it may be wildly inaccurate.

    I have no doubt we will all wake up tomorrow, barring death by natural causes.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. So far in my lifetime, I’ve seen/heard this same story any number of times, from any number of complete idiots, and can, obviously, state unequivocally, NONE of them were correct; I’d say Pete’s observations hold true time after time, as people use false information to make false conclusions. I’ll also note, Charles Schulz once observed, “Don’t worry about the world ending tomorrow; it’s already tomorrow in Australia…”

    But, I guess the media has to try to print SOMETHING that will sell another paper, & there’s always a market for idiocy….
