Failed Prophecies: Threats From Space
May 19, 2019 6:00 AM
This article is more than three years old.
Every few years some one comes forward with claims of an impending doomsday, citing the threats as anything from nuclear war or civil unrest through to a natural disaster or alien invasion, but the most common theme when it comes to Earth's destruction is threats from space.
Most of the prediction revolve around rogue planets and astroids, which we have failed to detect and are hurtling towards Earth on a collision course. These apocalyptic events are generally prophesied by religious groups or preachers.
I don't need to tell you, that as of yet, none of these prediction have been even close. There's been no near misses, no rogue planets, and no flaming asteroids. The most recent of these predictions was in July 2018 when the cataclysmic event was predicted to coincide with a stunning lunar eclipse, combined with a deep red "blood moon".
Luckily, we're now safe until at least 2026, the year that the Messiah Foundation International has predicted that the world will end when an asteroid collides with Earth. Something tells me we'll be alright, but if you need to be reassured, below are the previous predicted events, which tuned out to be massively incorrect.
5th May, 2000
The religious group Nuwaubian Nation predicted a "star holocaust". They claimed that on this date the planets would lineup, the result would mean a combined gravitational effect which would pull all of the planets in the solar system into the Sun.

Nancy Lieder, founder of the website ZetaTalk, was the first to predict a collision with rogue planet, also known as Nibiru or Planet-X. According to her website, the planet would enter our solar system and after a near-miss would cause a Earth's magnetic poles to shift, which would destroy most of humanity.

It was a busy few months for subscribers to doomsday theories as Comet Elenin passed through our solar system. The prophecies stated that as the comet traveled between Earth and the Sun it would cause a disturbance in the Earth's crust resulting in massive earthquakes and tsunamis. There were also theories that the comet would crash into Earth. Both theories were widely circulated, despite the fact that scientists said that neither options were possible.

2012 was a big year for doomsday predictions, many believed that Earth would be destroyed by an asteroid, Nibiru, or some other interplanetary object, perhaps even alien invasion. Again, scientists from NASA stated that none of those events were possible.
April 2014 - September 2015
The "blood moon prophecy" was proposed by two Christian ministers claim that the set of four unusually close lunar eclipses in the space of two years could represent the beginning of the Messianic end times.
23 September, 2017
Conspiracy theorist David Meade predicted that a "hidden planet", which NASA, scientists, and every amateur astronomer on the planet has failed to spot would become visible in the sky and would destroy the Earth. After his 2017 prediction failed, he revised his prediction, stating the world would end on 23rd Apr, 2018 instead.
27 July, 2018
Pastor Paul Begley predicted on his YouTube channel that a blood moon lunar eclipse is a sign that the world is coming to an end. Apparently it all relates to a passage in the Hebrew Bible, which states "the Sun will turn into darkness, and the Moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the Lord comes." Those who believe this latest doomsday prediction think that the eclipse will bring with it a tragic event with the potential to destroy the world.

The "blood moon prophecy" reared its ugly head again early in 2019 when the evangelical preacher Pastor Paul Begley once again predicted that a lunar event would bring with it the destruction of humanity. This time it was a super blood wolf moon eclipse. An ominous-sounding lunar event which gets its name from several coinciding factors. The word 'super' refers to the fact it'll appear larger in the sky that normal, 'blood' is due to its deep orange colour and 'wolf' is name given to the first full moon of the year.
