You now have less than twenty-four hours to prepare for the end of the world...but wait, wasn't it supposed to happen in 1001AD? Or was it 1844?https://abc7news.com/rapture-apocalypse-david-meade-planet-x/2428453/
You might have seen conspiracy theories in your newsfeed that the world will end today. Where did the idea come from, and what do scientists have to say about it?
The date has to do with the eclipse, but it's only the latest in a string of similar theories, all of which have been proven false.
David Meade, who wrote a book called, "Planet X - The 2017 Arrival," claims that on Sept. 23, a sign would come that "Planet X" also known as "Nibiru" will have an encounter with Earth, changing the world as we know it.
Editor's note: Meade clarified to the Washington Post that he believes a "sign" will appear on Sept. 23 signaling the beginning of the end, though this would not be the exact date of the apocalypse.
Meade's claim gained popularity from a bizarre 4-minute YouTube video that includes a seven-headed dragon, a prediction of a "heavenly sign" over Jerusalem and a depiction of the supposed rapture. The video, called "September 23, 2017: You Need to See This," has more than 2 million views.
