    Actually, the reason was that for it to actually work, people would have to expose themselves to demonic influence.
    It was to protect people.

    There is a kind of "spiritual" narcissism involved with those who constantly predict the end times. Meaning it's coming because they say so, and they'll be here to say, "I told you so." As a bonus, they (the predictors) will be among God's 'chosen few', to be plucked up when it happens in some type of spiritual rapture. Then they'll gloat from the safety of their seats in Heaven. They believe that being a sniveling, @ss-kissing coward is the way to God's good graces.

    Those types of people are not really 'spiritual' in any sense of the word. Most of those types are no more than self-righteous psychopaths, like that slimeball Harold Camping, who love feeding on the fear of nervous, gullible people.

    If the end does happen to come when I'm here, I certainly will not have wasted my life living in constant dread, waiting and worrying about it.
    Spot on.
    Spot on indeed.

    Thanks for clarifying that now, David Meade...

    Man who said the world is ending Saturday changed his mind. It isn't actually ending
    USA TODAY NETWORK Ashley May, USA TODAY Published 12:10 p.m. ET Sept. 22, 2017 | Updated 4:51 p.m. ET Sept. 22, 2017

    Many 'doomsday' predictions have surfaced over the years. Here's a look at four of the most notable ones. USA TODAY

    David Meade, who claimed the world will end Saturday, said doomsday isn't this weekend after all.

    “The world is not ending, but the world as we know it is ending,” he told The Washington Post. “A major part of the world will not be the same the beginning of October.”

    Meade, Christian and self-published author, laid out his "astronomical, scientific, the Book of Revelation and geopolitics" ideology in his book Planet X — The 2017 Arrival. He claims Sept. 23 "Planet Nibiru" will collide with the Earth.

    But now Meade is saying this event won't mark the apocalypse, but rather a series of dire events over the course of weeks, The Washington Post reports.

    NASA has said "Nibiru" or "Planet X" doesn't exist and this is a hoax. Christian leaders have also disputed the claims. Christianity Today calls Meade "a made-up leader in a made-up field."

    Even some translations of Biblical scripture refutes men making claims about knowing the date of the end. Just take a look at Matthew 24:36, which says: "But about that day or hour, no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father."

    Many like Meade have tried to pinpoint doomsday in the past. But, here we all are. At least for now.

    The Aztecs predicted their own apocalypse in a way. They mistook Cortez as Quetzalcoatl, but from their perspective, that was spot on. They knew the day or hour, but then again, they weren't Christian.

    Then again, there's this

    Niburu, Pluto, when are we getting the Uranus Apocalypse? That'll be the end.

    We may survive the Anthropocene, but need to avoid a radioactive ‘Plutocene’

    On January 27, 2017, the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists moved the arms of its doomsday clock to 2.5 minutes to midnight – the closest it has been since 1953. Meanwhile, atmospheric carbon dioxide levels now hover above 400 parts per million.

    Why are these two facts related? Because they illustrate the two factors that could transport us beyond the Anthropocene – the geological epoch marked by humankind’s fingerprint on the planet – and into yet another new, even more hostile era of our own making.

    My new book, titled The Plutocene: Blueprints for a post-Anthropocene Greenhouse Earth, describes the future world we are on course to inhabit, now that it has become clear that we are still busy building nuclear weapons rather than working together to defend our planet.

    I have coined the term Plutocene to describe a post-Anthropocene period marked by a plutonium-rich sedimentary layer in the oceans. The Anthropocene is very short, having begun (depending on your definition) either with the Industrial Revolution in about 1750, or with the onset of nuclear weapons and sharply rising greenhouse emissions in the mid-20th century. The future length of the Plutocene would depend on two factors: the half-life of radioactive plutonium-239 of 24,100 years, and how long our CO₂ will stay in the atmosphere – potentially up to 20,000 years.

    During the Plutocene, temperatures would be much higher than today. Perhaps they would be similar to those during the Pliocene (2.6 million to 5.3 million years ago), when average temperatures were about 2℃ above those of pre-industrial times, or the Miocene (roughly 5.3 million to 23 million years ago), when average temperatures were another 2℃ warmer than that, and sea levels were 20–40m higher than today.

    Under these conditions, population and farming centres in low coastal zones and river valleys would be inundated, and humans would be forced to seek higher latitudes and altitudes to survive – as well as potentially having to contend with the fallout of nuclear conflict. The most extreme scenario is that evolution takes a new turn – one that favours animals best equipped to withstand heat and radiation.

    Climates past

    While we have a range of tools for studying prehistoric climates, including ice cores and tree rings, these methods do not of course tell us what the future holds.

    However, the basic laws of physics, the principles of climate science, and the lessons from past and current climate trends, help us work out the factors that will dictate our future climate.

    Broadly speaking, the climate is shaped by three broad factors: trends in solar cycles; the concentration of atmospheric greenhouse gases; and intermittent events such as volcanic eruptions or asteroid impacts.

    Solar cycles are readily predicted, and indeed can be seen in the geological record, whereas intermittent events are harder to account for. The factor over which we have the most control is our own greenhouse emissions.

    CO₂ levels have previously climbed as high as 2,000 parts per million (ppm), most recently during the early Eocene, roughly 55-45 million years ago. The subsequent decline of CO₂ levels to just a few hundred parts per million then cooled the planet, creating the conditions that allowed Earth’s current inhabitants (much later including humans) to flourish.

    But what of the future? Based on these observations, as reported by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), several projections of future climates indicate an extension of the current interglacial period by about 30,000 years, consistent with the longevity of atmospheric CO₂.

    If global warming were to reach 4℃, as suggested by Hans Joachim Schellnhuber, chief climate advisor to the German government, the resulting amplification effects on the climate would pose an existential threat both to nature and human civilisation.

    Barring effective sequestration of carbon gases, and given amplifying feedback effects from the melting of ice sheets, warming of oceans, and drying out of land surfaces, Earth is bound to reach an average of 4℃ above pre-industrial levels within a time frame to which numerous species, including humans, may hardly be able to adapt. The increase in evaporation from the oceans and thereby water vapour contents of the atmosphere leads to mega-cyclones, mega-floods and super-tropical terrestrial environments. Arid and semi-arid regions would become overheated, severely affecting flora and fauna habitats.

    The transition to such conditions is unlikely to be smooth and gradual, but may instead feature sharp transient cool intervals called “stadials”. Increasingly, signs of a possible stadial are being seen south of Greenland.

    A close analogy can be drawn between future events and the Eocene-Paleocene Thermal Maximum about 55 million years ago, when release of methane from Earth’s crust resulted in extreme rise in temperature. But as shown below, the current rate of temperature rise is far more rapid – and more akin to the planet-heating effects of an asteroid strike.

    Mounting our defence

    Defending ourselves from global warming and nuclear disaster requires us to do two things: stop fighting destructive wars, and start fighting to save our planet. There is a range of tactics we can use to help achieve the second goal, including large-scale seagrass cultivation, extensive biochar development, and restoring huge swathes of the world’s forests.

    Space exploration is wonderful, but we still only know of one planet that supports life (bacteria possibly excepted). This is our home, and there is currently little prospect of realising science fiction’s visions of an escape from a scorched Earth to some other world.

    Yet still we waver. Many media outlets operate in apparent denial of the connection between global warming and extreme weather. Meanwhile, despite diplomatic progress on nuclear weapons, the Sword of Damocles continues to hang over our heads, as 14,900 nuclear warheads sit aimed at one another, waiting for accidental or deliberate release.

    If the clock does strike nuclear midnight, and if we don’t take urgent action to defend our planet, life as we know it will not be able to continue. Humans will survive in relatively cold high latitudes and altitudes. A new cycle would begin.

    The return of Nibiru


    Nibiru to cause 'end of the world' on April 23 says conspiracy theorist David Meade in latest RAPTURE outburst
    Nibiru - or Planet X - may not have shown up in previous years, but David Meade says it's coming next week

    ByJeff ParsonsTech/Science Reporter
    13:23, 19 APR 2018
    SCIENCE

    Despite the lack of cataclysmic destruction in both 2017 and 2016 from the mysterious death planet known as "Nibiru", conspiracy theorists still think it's going to destroy us.

    Chief among the doomsayers is David Meade, a self-titled Christian numerologist who seems very interested in warning us all of our incoming destruction.

    “The Book of Revelation states that men will approach Armageddon on horseback. Nibiru is here and the earth will be prepared for the next event on its calendar. That’s all in the Book of Revelation, too,” he said, according to the Daily Express.

    In an article earlier this year, he wrote: "By early April of 2018, the disappearance of the Church (all true Christians worldwide also known as the Rapture) will occur.

    "This will be followed quickly by the rise of the Antichrist, the appearance of Planet X and World War III.

    "Seven years of Tribulation will ensure. This is beyond any shadow of doubt."

    Amusingly, the world was also supposed to end yesterday , according to another conspiracy theory voicemail message that picked up a lot of traction on the internet.

    But everyone is so convinced by these theories.

    Nick Pope, former MoD UFO investigator, tweeted: "The world isn’t going to end on April 18 (the creepy voicemail hoax) or April 23 (the Rapture/Nibiru hoax).

    “There’s no solid evidence or good science to support this nonsense, and the dates will pass (like the dates in all previous predictions of Armageddon) without incident.”

    Where does the Nibiru conspiracy theory come from?


    (Image: Wikimedia Commons)

    As well as noting apparent mystic markings on the pyramids in Egypt, Meade's prediction is largely based on the Bible passage Isaiah, Chapter 13 9-10, which says: "See, the Day of the Lord is coming – a cruel day, with wrath and fierce anger – to make the land desolate and destroy the sinners within it.

    "The Stars of Heaven and their constellations will not show their light. The rising sun will be darkened and the Moon will not give its light."

    Supposedly, a celestial alignment takes place on the 23rd that mirrors one fortold in the Book of Revelation. But experts have proven that there is nothing special about the line-up of the moon, the planets or the sun on that date.

    Meade, who first claimed that Nibiru was on it's way in a series on YouTube posts, later clarified his theory, confirming that the expected apocalypse had been delayed while also claiming that the planet was never predicted to arrive on a specific date in the first place.

    It's so ridiculous that even NASA has debunked it


    NASA sign at Kennedy Space Center, Florida, USA (Image: Getty)

    Asteroid as big as football pitch narrowly avoided Earth in closest near miss ever recorded
    This theory of a wayward planet - also known as "Planet X" - became so prolific that NASA released a statement to confirm it wasn't true.

    The statement read: "Various people are 'predicting' that world will end on September 23 when another planet collides with Earth. The planet in question, Nibiru, doesn't exist, so there will be no collision," the space agency said.

    "Nibiru and other stories about wayward planets are an internet hoax.

    "There is no factual basis for these claims. If Nibiru or Planet X were real and headed for an encounter with the Earth astronomers would have been tracking it for at least the past decade, and it would be visible by now to the naked eye.

    "Obviously, it does not exist."

    srsly now

    The scary thing is one of these days, this thread will be right.

    And that might be sooner than we like to think.

    Today, the Silicon Valley skies are orange again with wildfire smoke. And it's not just God punishing liberal California.

    How Did the End of the World Become Old News?
    By David Wallace-Wells


    The fire this time (in Sweden). Photo: Mats Andersson/AFP/Getty Images

    There has been a lot of burning lately. Last week, wildfires broke out in the Arctic Circle, where temperatures reached almost 90 degrees; they are still roiling northern Sweden, 21 of them. And this week, wildfires swept through the Greek seaside, outside Athens, killing at least 80 and hospitalizing almost 200. At one resort, dozens of guests tried to escape the flames by descending a narrow stone staircase into the Aegean, only to be engulfed along the way, dying literally in each other’s arms.

    Last July, I wrote a much-talked-over magazine cover story considering the worst-case scenarios for climate change — much talked over, in part, because it was so terrifying, which made some of the scenarios a bit hard to believe. Those worst-case scenarios are still quite unlikely, since they require both that we do nothing to alter our emissions path, which is still arcing upward, and that those unabated emissions bring us to climate outcomes on the far end of what’s possible by 2100.

    But, this July, we already seem much ****her along on those paths than even the most alarmist climate observers — e.g., me — would have predicted a year ago. In a single week earlier this month, dozens of places around the world were hit with record temperatures in what was, effectively, an unprecedented, planet-encompassing heat wave: from Denver to Burlington to Ottawa; from Glasgow to Shannon to Belfast; from Tbilisi, in Georgia, and Yerevan, in Armenia, to whole swaths of southern Russia. The temperature of one city in Oman, where the daytime highs had reached 122 degrees Fahrenheit, did not drop below 108 all night; in Montreal, Canada, 50 died from the heat. That same week, 30 major wildfires burned in the American West, including one, in California, that grew at the rate of 10,000 football fields each hour, and another, in Colorado, that produced a volcano-like 300-foot eruption of flames, swallowing an entire subdivision and inventing a new term — “fire tsunami” — along the way. On the other side of the planet, biblical rains flooded Japan, where 1.2 million were evacuated from their homes. The following week, the heat struck there, killing dozens. The following week.

    In other words, it has been a month of historic, even unprecedented, climate horrors. But you may not have noticed, if you are anything but the most discriminating consumer of news. The major networks aired 127 segments on the unprecedented July heat wave, Media Matters usefully tabulated, and only one so much as mentioned climate change. The New York Times has done admirable work on global warming over the last year, launching a new climate desk and devoting tremendous resources to high-production-value special climate “features.” But even their original story on the wildfires in Greece made no mention of climate change — after some criticism on Twitter, they added a reference.

    Over the last few days, there has been a flurry of chatter among climate writers and climate scientists, and the climate-curious who follow them, about this failure. In perhaps the most widely parsed and debated Twitter exchange, MSNBC’s Chris Hayes — whose show, All In, has distinguished itself with the seriousness of its climate coverage — described the dilemma facing every well-intentioned person in his spot: the transformation of the planet and the degradation may be the biggest and most important story of our time, indeed of all time, but on television, at least, it has nevertheless proven, so far, a “palpable ratings killer.” All of which raises a very dispiriting possibility, considering the scale of the climate crisis: Has the end of the world as we know it become, already, old news?

    If so, that would be really, really bad. As I’ve written before, and as Wen Stephenson echoed more recently in The Baffler, climate change is not a matter of “yes” or “no,” not a binary process where we end up either “****ed” or “not ****ed.” It is a system that gets worse over time as long as we continue to emit greenhouse gases. We are just beginning to see the horrors that climate change has in store for us —but that does not mean that the story is settled. Things will get worse, almost certainly much, much worse. Indeed, the news about what more to expect, coming out of new research, only darkens our picture of what to expect: Just over the past few weeks, new studies have suggested heat in many major Indian cities would be literally lethal by century’s end, if current warming trends continue, and that, by that time, global economic output could fall, thanks to climate effects, by 30 percent or more. That is an impact twice as deep as the global Great Depression, and it would not be temporary.

    These are not the kinds of findings it is easy to ignore, or dismiss, or compartmentalize, even though we have all become exquisitely skilled lately in compartmentalizing the threat. Neither is it easy to forget the stories of the Greek wildfires, or the Japanese heat wave. Which is why it is perhaps important to remember that the media did not ignore these stories, or the month of global climate horrors that gave rise to them. Television networks covered those heat waves 127 times. That is, actually, a very lot! They just utterly failed to “connect the dots,” as Emily Atkin put it incisively at The New Republic —broadcasters told the story of the historic temperatures, but chose not to touch the question of why we were seeing so many of them, all at once, with the atmosphere more full of carbon, and the planet hotter, than it has ever been at any point in human history.

    When you think about it, this would be a very strange choice for a producer or an editor concerned about boring or losing his or her audience — it would mean leaving aside the far more dramatic story of the total transformation of the planet’s climate system, and the immediate and all-encompassing threat posed by climate change to the way we live on Earth, to tell the pretty mundane story of some really hot days in the region.

    Which is why this all sounds to me a lot more like self-censorship than ratings-chasing — by which I mean self-censorship of two kinds. The first is the intuitive one — the kind done in anticipation of political blowback, an especially acute problem for would-be neutral, would-be centrist platforms like network news. This self-censorship in fear of right-wing backlash is a familiar story, and most of those concerned about global warming know the villains already: oil companies, climate deniers, indifferent (at best) politicians, and constituents who see science as a culture-war front.

    But public apathy, and its cousin climate complacency, is as big a problem — perhaps bigger. And this problem, too, is connected to self-censorship on the part of storytellers who feel intimidated from attributing what we used to know as natural disasters to global warming because scientists are so excruciatingly careful about attributing cause. As NPR’s science editor Geoff Brumfiel told Atkin, “You don’t just want to be throwing around, ‘This is due to climate change, that is due to climate change.’”

    Well — why not? The stated reason, when a reason is stated, is that scientists can take years to definitively conclude that a particular disaster was impossible without the effects of warming, and often only speak with certainty about specific events a decade or more in the past— the 2003 European heat wave, for instance, which killed tens of thousands. But wildfires are “not caused by climate change” only in the same way that hurricanes are not caused by climate change — which is to say they are (only) made more likely by it, which is to say the distinction is semantic. The same is true, even more so, for heat waves: We know global warming will cause many more deadly temperatures, and should not be confused, at all, when we suddenly encounter an unprecedented number of them. The fact that most climate scientists would say something like, “These disasters are consistent with what we would expect, given global warming,” rather than “these disasters were caused by global warming” is not a reason to elide discussion of climate change. Doing so is an evasion, even if it is made with a scientific alibi.

    It is also a dangerous one. Decades of bad-faith debates about whether climate change is “real” and good-faith questions about whether it is “here” have dramatically foreshortened our collective imagination and provided an unfortunately limited picture of what global warming will yield. Treating every climate disaster as a discrete event only compounds the problem, suggesting that impacts will be discrete. They won’t be, and the longer-view story is much more harrowing: not just more months like July, but an unfolding century when a month like this July has become a happy memory of a placid climate. That it is almost hard to believe only makes it a more important story to tell.

    ttt 4 2019!

    Totally serious prophecy says the apocalypse will occur in 2019 (for real this time, guys)
    by Dan Broadbent 22 days ago



    Forget your new year’s resolutions and live it up – A totally serious and completely real Biblical prophecy claims that the apocalypse will happen in December 2019, ending life as we know it on Earth once and for all. More specifically, on December 28th. FREAKING FINALLY. It’s about **** time. I’ve been getting pretty tired of all these wannabe apocalypse events that end up falling through. So much promise, so little payoff. And of course, the source for this prophecy is none other than a book about a dude who may or may not have existed ~2000 years ago that was written 75 to 300 years after he died. This piece of breaking news comes from David Montaigne, a guy who has written multiple books about the end times, and bills himself as a historian and “prophecy scholar.” I never thought of a catastrophic apocalypse as being an opportunity to cash in with a bunch of ridiculous books. Maybe he’s on to something here.

    Of course, when you’re in the business of predicting the end of humanity, you’re going to have more misses than hits. Montaigne has previously claimed that the anti-Christ was going to return to Earth in June of 2016… thanks to former US president Barack Obama. Because: of course. But we’ve known about this particular apocalyptic event since Montaigne’s 2013 blockbuster book End Times and 2019: The End of the Mayan Calendar and the Countdown to Judgement Day. According to Montaigne, an astronomical alignment in December will create a series of events such as earthquakes, tidal waves, volcanic eruptions, and massive Sharknadoes.


    Credit: Sharknado 2. (… Yes, they made more than one. They actually made six. No, I’m not joking.)

    Okay, maybe Montaigne didn’t say there would be Sharknadoes. But hey, we’re dealing with a phantasmal apocalyptic event from someone with a tenuous grasp of reality, so if we’re just going to make **** up, we might as well make it interesting, right? Montaigne makes the following claims on his website:
    On December 21, 2019, survivors will experience the first day of a pole shift – when the entire surface of the planet will shift out of position and move over the more fluid layers beneath the crust. Over the next few days this will cause earthquakes and tidal waves and volcanic activity which will almost completely destroy what is left of our civilisation. There is a mountain of evidence in historical, geological, and biological records showing such pole shifts have happened before. Even the Bible describes them repeatedly. I think that we will experience another pole shift for the week following December 21, 2019, getting worse each day until the natural disasters culminate on December 28 – Judgment Day.
    Yes, the magnetic poles on Earth can shift. They have before, and will happen again. An article titled Magnetic Pole Reversal Happens All The (Geologic) Time by NASA explains:
    Reversals are the rule, not the exception. Earth has settled in the last 20 million years into a pattern of a pole reversal about every 200,000 to 300,000 years, although it has been more than twice that long since the last reversal. A reversal happens over hundreds or thousands of years, and it is not exactly a clean back flip. Magnetic fields morph and push and pull at one another, with multiple poles emerging at odd latitudes throughout the process. Scientists estimate reversals have happened at least hundreds of times over the past three billion years. And while reversals have happened more frequently in “recent” years, when dinosaurs walked Earth a reversal was more likely to happen only about every one million years.
    His most recent blog post, which posted earlier today, asks the question “Are My Books Being Discredited Because I’m Actually Onto Something Important?” lol, no. David, your books don’t have credit to begin with. You can’t discredit something that didn’t have credit in the first place.

    aw ****

    the rapture happened and i missed it?

    Rapture warning as Biblical prophecy claims end of days tomorrow as moon turns red
    A STRAWBERRY moon tonight promises to stun astronomy enthusiasts around the world - but doomsday preachers have sensationally claimed the red moon means end of days.
    By Lucy Domachowski / Published 16th June 2019

    The Strawberry Moon is the sixth of this year’s 12 named Full Moon phases.

    The Strawberry Moon will make its appearance just one month after the so-called Flower Moon peaked in May.

    The full moon will be in the night sky on the evening of Monday 17 June.


    RAPTURE? The Strawberry Moon is the sixth of this year’s 12 named Full Moon phases (Pic: Getty)

    While the moon will technically be at its fullest at 9.30 am on that day, it won’t be visible at all in the sky, having previously set at around 4.54am.

    It will rise again at around 9.30pm and won’t set again until about 5.39am the next morning, meaning it will be visible in all its glory throughout the night – clear skies permitting of course.

    But while astronomy fans will be patiently waiting to see the phenomenon, some doomsday preachers will be waiting for the world to end.

    Tim Henderson, who monitors events that could signal the end of mankind, believes the Rapture starts with the Strawberry Moon tomorrow.

    The Rapture is an event many Christians believe marks the return of the son of God – and all the believers will disappear from Earth up to Heaven in the "twinkling of an eye".

    He explained a number of factors had allowed him to pinpoint the end of times – which coincides with the Strawberry Moon.

    “Things are happening and the Lord had regained for things to happen," he explained.

    “This 17th, this strawberry Moon, this time of Harvest, and the number 17 meaning victory and perfection … I believe our bridegroom is coming for the bride very very very soon.

    “I am so excited about the season we’re in and we have the privilege of occupying and redeeming the time looking up for our redemption draws nigh and sharing the Gospel of Grace.

    “Things are happening and the Lord had regained for things to happen”

    “I’m going to share John 3:16 ‘For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.’

    “I am so grateful for the blood of Jesus that is shed on the cross of cavalry to pay the debt, the random price for my sins once and for all.”

    Responding to Tim’s claims, one person wrote: “Over a year ago I was given the number 17 (specifically 17th day) by God. My heart always beats a bit faster around the 17th of the month! The 17th day was also when Noah and family were shut in the ark, I believe. Such amazing times. God bless you all brothers and sisters! (sic)”

    Another said: “I’m breaking down guys. Be really great to get out of here soon and know that's why the attacks are so great… because it's so close.”
