THE WORLD may not have ended yet, but humanity is still doomed to a final seven years of pain and misery from Planet X.
Saturday, September 23 was a key date in the calendars of doom-mongers who were convinced that the world was going to end.
On this day the mysterious Planet X, also known as Nibiru, was supposed to approach Earth and signal the start of the apocalypse.
But despite Nibiru believers waiting for its fateful arrival on Saturday, no rouge planet appeared in the skies over Earth.
Although a handful of people claimed to have caught Nibiru on camera, no concrete scientific evidence was produced over the weekend.
The main voice behind the latest Planet X theory is Christian numerologist David Meade who has heralded the end of the world for months now.
But after the world did not end on Saturday, he backtracked to say that the world will actually begin to end on October 21.
“My most recent astronomical cryptography of the imminent judgments approaching begins in the week of October 21, 2017,” he said.
“The End of Days, in my opinion, and remember we see ‘through a glass darkly’, will begin in the latter part of October of 2017.
“Not the end of the world, but the end of days as prophesied in the Bible.
“The world is not going to end but, as I’ve stated before to reporters, ‘The world as you know it will end’. It will change. Normalcy bias will cease.”
According to Mr. Meade, the apocalypse will involve a seven-year period of Tribulation that will precede the second coming of Jesus Christ.
Fortunately for his Christian followers, after Earth is completely wasted, Jesus will allegedly build a kingdom of prosperity that will last for a thousand years.
Mr. Meade explained: “Nothing is expected to happen in September.
“It is possible at the end of October we may be about to enter into the seven-year Tribulation period, to be followed by a Millennium of peace.
“When Nibiru is on close approach to Earth sometime during the Tribulation, you’ll have solar flares and a possible loss of the electrical grid for weeks, maybe longer.
“However, that’s the main risk I see right now because, as I’ve stated in my book, right after the initial solar flare risk I see the Rapture of the true Church.”
But the whole Nibiru theory has been debunked time and time again by the world’s leading scientists.
In the run-up to the September 23 feared ‘apocalypse’, Nasa issued a statement rejecting the Planet X hoax.
The American space agency said: “Various people are ‘predicting’ that world will end Sept. 23 when another planet collides with Earth.
“The planet in question, Niburu, doesn’t exist, so there will be no collision.”
Nasa added: “The story of Niburu has been around for years (as has the ‘days of darkness’ tale) and is periodically recycled into new apocalyptic fables.”
