Oh for pity’s sake! How much more naïve and stupid is the religious world going to get? It’s pathetic.

END OF THE WORLD
Minority Christian groups have predicted the world will end later this month – when they say a ‘blood moon’ will bring about an apocalyptic meteor strike.
Scientists say a ‘blood moon’ will occur on September 28, when the moon passes into the shadow of the earth cast by the Sun (a lunar eclipse) and appears dim and reddish.
Some religious leaders believe that because this is the fourth consecutive lunar eclipse since April 2014, it is part of a "tertrad" - which foretells a meteorite destroying earth and the end of time.
Experts at Nasa remain unconvinced.
The organisation monitors the heavens constantly for asteroids and none are on course to collide with Earth for several hundred years. However, the fears are widespread enough for it to have issued an official statement on the topic.
The Blood Moon theory has its roots in a passage in the Bible in
Joel 2:31 which reads: "And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the Lord come."
Similarly, in Acts 2:20: "The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and glorious day of the Lord."
And again in Revelation 6:12: "[...] and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood".
That a "tetrad" of lunar eclipses, with six full moons in between them, will coincide with an asteroid hitting earth was popularised by US pastors Mark Biltz and John Hagee. They each noted that previous tetrads in history had coincided with noteworthy, tragic and triumphant events in Jewish history.
Mr Hagee's book on the topic, called Four Blood Moons, was the ninth best-selling paperback in the US in March last year.
Present day biblical theorists who follow the teachings have been worried that in a period somewhere between September 22 to 28 2015, the world will end.

And although sources are vague there has been enough speculation on social media and elsewhere for NASA, which has an automated collision monitoring system, to issue the following statement:
"NASA knows of no asteroid or comet currently on a collision course with Earth, so the probability of a major collision is quite small," said a spokesperson in comments reported by Yahoo News.
"In fact, as best as we can tell, no large object is likely to strike the Earth any time in the next several hundred years."

Dibs and HF, what have you got to say about that?

Well, to me this just confirms how little about the Bible so many professed Christians actually know. If they knew Revelations they'd know that the end is supposed to come like "a thief in the night."

that's odd... i just posted and it didn't never mind...

the temple in Jerusalem must be rebuilt, the antichrist will declare himself the saviour and sit on the throne, all that must happen before the end comes

the thief in the night is more a reference to it coming as a shock or unannounced to some, the fact the timing will be shown by signs prior to the end is scriptural...

It's kind of contradictory -- back when I was a believer, I reconciled it by imagining a world that was largely non-Christian, so that there would be few people who even knew what the signs were supposed to be.

Thanks Didge for the link. I'll have alook later, haven't got time now.

A good point, Ben. Take Christianity out of the equation and those prophesies would mean nothing.

it's not a contradiction, to the unbelievers it will seem as just bang it happened, to those who read and understand the signs will be there not to the minute, hour or day but when it is close...

religions merely predict their own demise
As HF says he can see the signs of his religions end are upon us

Jehovah was not made to last, both his Creation and Destruction witnessed by the great Methuselah trees


One that is in opposition to reality cannot hope to last for long
