Despite conspiracy theorist David Meade's claims that the world would end on Sept. 23, Earth appears to be spinning on just fine. But don't worry — Meade says he just got the date wrong: Doomsday will actually happen in October.
Meade wote on his website without any scientific basis that his original prediction about the world ending on Sept. 23 actually marked a day that would set into motion a series of catastrophic events that will eventually lead to Earth's demise. Now, he says the real "action" will start on Oct. 15.
According to Meade's initial prediction, a rogue planet called Nibiru or Planet X — kept secret by NASA — would collide with Earth on Sept. 23. Meade based his prediction on Bible verses and codes that showed Sept. 23 as a significant date. But once nothing happened on that day, Meade asserted that the real trouble would actually start next month.
"Nothing is expected to happen in September," he wrote. "It is possible at the end of October we may be about to enter into the 7-year Tribulation period, to be followed by a Millennium of peace."
Some are fearful of Meade's latest end-of-the-world claims, several scholars and researchers have debunked his theories.
David Meade, a self-described "specialist in research and investigations," is saying that's exactly what he had expected.
"Hold on and watch - wait until the middle of October and I don't believe you'll be disappointed," Meade wrote, before going on to promote his book, which he claims has all the details.
