For many years, civilizations have been discussing how the world would end. For instance, in the case of the Mayans, they believed once their calendar exhausted all its days in a year that the world would end. Thankfully, even though a Mayan year has passed, the world still exists, and all is well.
A Holy End to the World?
Or is it? Conspiracy theorist Mathieu Jean-Marc Joseph Rodrigue believes that the key to the secrets of the Armageddon lies within a biblical passage. The passage in question is from the Book of Revalations, which describes Judgement Day–a great battle between heaven, hell, and the Son of God who makes everything right. He believes that a certain line in the passage, “He was given authority to act for 42 months, “in the context of the prices of crop harvests depicted in the rest of the book, gives clues as to when the world will end.
Rodrigue goes on to cite another line, where he claims to have heard a “voice in the middle of the four living beings, “which represents a man with a figure of 666. For those that don’t know, 666 is the number associated with the devil. With the help of some math, he adds the 66 figure to the 42 months in Revalations. According to his calculations, the end of the world would be on June 24, 2018, though how it will happen is yet to be discovered by the curious conspirator.
To add to his credibility, the renowned 16th-century prophet Nostradamus also believed that the Earth would come to an end in 2018. The prophet has some predictions that actually came true: he predicted correctly that earthquakes would terrorize the Earth when Saturn, Jupiter, and Mercury would align within the constellation of Taurus within the month of May.
Perhaps the end of the Earth is nigh, and we should prepare for the worst. Or, should we leave it up to chance and hope that the world will still exist in 2019? Either way, I would rather sit back, relax, and enjoy the New Year while it still exists.
