Wasn't this really supposed to have happened in 2012?

People have really vivid imaginations. It's never stopped anyone from reading too much into some sort of ancient scroll, or text, or whatever, and then somehow interpreting that as the end of the world. Like in this ridiculous video below that's gone viral...

One man says the end is near, and by near we mean Saturday. David Meade, who represents a Christian publication known as Unsealed, says that the Earth will go through a major cataclysmic change September 23. 2017. The Washington Post says the number 33 plays an important roll in this latest apocalyptic prophecy. Meade said this won't necessarily mean the end of the world for good, just the end as we know it....like the REM song we guess.

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.

Meade is a believer in the Nibiru (or Planet X) catastrophe scenario. Basically, this means some sort of large object planet-like object will hit Earth, causing all sorts of death and destruction. The doomsday event has been dismissed by scientists, academics, religious leaders and just about every other sane person as pseudoscience or a hoax started online.

Meade said his prediction stems straight from the book of Revelation. Meade is an author himself. He's written a number of books on the subject even. He also claims to have studied astronomy at a university n Kentucky, though he won't mention which one.
