The US numerologist who predicted doomsday on September 23, 2017, has come up with another claim that the world's end would start on October 15, 2017.
David Meade, who claims himself as a "specialist in research and investigations," had earlier claimed that a the biblical planet or Nibiru would collide with Earth on Sept. 23 resulting in end of the world but it proved a hoax as were many of his previous predictions. Undaunted, he has reasoned it out saying he never said that would happen. His revised claim sets the date as October 7, 2017 or just a week from now and said the destruction of the world would last for seven years.
The new claim is said to be based on the Biblical doomsday claim of 7-year tribulation period which says that seven years of catastrophic events would create destruction of Earth. He said, "It is the most important date of this century and millennium... Hold on and watch-wait until the middle of October and I don't believe you'll be disappointed."
While promoting his book which he says will have all the details, he said, "You don't have long to read it."
Meanwhile, NASA website clarified saying, "The planet in question, Nibiru, doesn't exist. So there will be no collision... the story of Nibiru has been around for years and is periodically recycled into a new apocalyptic fable."
The Washington post quoted Robert Joustra, an international studies Professor at Redemer University College saying that those who engage in apocalypse claims often rely on mainstream information, such as the Book of Revelation. But many also find an 'absurd' reference in the Bible to make predictions convincing, he noted.
Meade has also predicted a 7 year's nuclear war or World War Three with US and Britain on one side and Russia, China, North Korea and Iran on the other.
Similar predictions of doomsday by Nibiru were predicted earlier in 2000, 2003 and 2012. His prediction on Dec. 21, 2012, was based on the end of first Great Cycle of Mayan Long Count calendar on that day. It had raised huge outcry and even a Hollywood film named "2012" which was released during the period had gone to become a great hit during the period.
Social media is already abuzz with the new claims of Doomsday prediction on Oct. 15. Whether it happens or not, David Meade has already created a good benchmark for his book 'Planet X'.
