To sighs of relief across the globe, Sunday’s (September 27, 2015) blood moon came and went without the Earth being destroyed … despite the predictions.

We are not, however, out of the woods yet. Numerous predictions say that the world will end in the relatively near future.

7 October 2015

Chris McCann, leader and founder of the eBible Fellowship, claims the world will end on this day. The choice stems from an earlier prediction by Harold Camping, a Christian radio host in California.

In 2011 Camping used his radio station, Family Radio, to notify people that the world would end on 21 May of that year. When that prediction failed, Camping revised his prediction to October 2011.

After that, he faded from public life.

McCann, a believer in Camping’s works, now claims that 21 May 2011 was actually the beginning of the day of judgment. He added 1,600 days – taken from a Revelation verse – to that date, coming up with 7 October 2015.

The day of judgement did arrive for Camping personally, though. He died … on December 15, 2013,


2020 to 2037

Jeane Dixon, a noted astrologer, apparently predicted in 1971 that the world would end somewhere between these years. It is hard to confirm because the prediction was made in her book The Call to Glory, which is not in our office library.

Dixon made a slew of other predictions, including that there would be a cure for cancer by 1967.


2021 to 2028

Kenton Beshore Kyle, pastor of Mariners church in California, said Jesus Christ would return for the Rapture around 2021. There will then be seven years of tribulation – a period of intense suffering – which will end with Christ establishing a new kingdom.


2026

The Messiah Foundation International says an asteroid will collide with the Earth in this year, destroying it. Riaz Ahmed Gohar Shahi, founder of the organisation, says the “mammoth comet” is already “hurtling” towards us.

Also: followers believe Shahi’s image is present on the moon.


2060

The world will end for the fifth time in 2060, according to Sir Isaac Newton. The English physicist and mathematician used the Book of Daniel to come up with the date, according to a 1704 letter which went on show in Jerusalem’s Hebrew University in 2007.

Guru Nanak warns us that priests and religion-brokers know little about God and merely end up conning their flocks for money, power and control.
