Conspiracy theory suggests end of the world to come on June 21st
Over the years, there have been many conspiracy theories about the end of the world especially when it will take place. The most popular theory of which came from the Mayan calendar that supposedly suggested the end of the world will be in 2012. However, a new theory appears to suggest that the end of the world may come next week on June 21st.
Express reports that a theory circulated on social media on the supposed date of the end of the world, made by scientist Paolo Tagalogun, who has since deleted his account on Twitter, where he detailed his theory on when the end of the world will take place. That has not stopped others from spreading the theory around. Dr. Tagalogun explained that the prediction of the end of the world would actually be eight years later than what the Mayan calendar would suggest.
Some who have spread the theory around on Twitter also mentioned a link between the end of the world and a planet called Niburu. This supposed planet which was first mentioned in 1995 by self-proclaimed “contact” Nancy Lieder, predicted that it will collide with Earth by the early 20th century. Lieder and her followers initially believed that the end of the world would come in 2003, but was ultimately postponed when it failed.
The conspiracy theorists who have now linked the non-existent planet to the Mayan calendar claim that the end would come next week, on the 21st of June.
However, many experts have debunked this theory, including the famous December 21, 2012 date. NASA astrobiologist David Morrison explained that if a planet like Niburu actually exists and is headed for Earth, then it would become the brightest object in the sky and everyone could be able to see it.
Another theory suggesting that the end of the world is approaching involves the current pandemic that the world is facing, the new coronavirus. According to the psychic that made the claim, Nicolas Aujula, the pandemic could be the first stage of the apocalypse, and contrary to an abrupt event, Mr. Aujula believes that the apocalypse is a gradual process. However, Mr. Aujula also noted that the end of the world will not be happening anytime soon, or within our lifetimes.
