Do you want the good news or the bad news? OK, the good news is that you won’t have to buy Christmas presents for everyone.
But the bad news is that the entire world is going to be destroyed in a fortnight’s time (July 29) – with cities collapsing as the Earth’s magnetic poles reverse.
(For some reason, nutty conspiracy theorists are OBSESSED with the idea of the Earth’s poles reversing).
Then a really, really angry Jesus is going to arrive, and kill everyone – except Christians who watch a lot of videos on YouTube, who will all be saved.
This charming prediction, by End Time Prophecies, is just one of several doomsday prophecies for this year – including that an asteroid would hit us on May 6 (it didn’t), and a prediction that Barack Obama would reveal he is the Antichrist in June (he didn’t).
This one is studded with Bible verses, and a lot of very dubious science – as well as some truly awesome CGI graphics.
End Times Prophecies says – in that computer voice favoured by all good YouTube nutters, ‘This is Armageddon News. In this broadcast we’ll discuss the second coming of Jesus Christ, which occurs at the same time as a magnetic polar flip and catastrophic global earthquake.
‘On the day which Jesus returns, there will be a polar reversal.
‘Revelations 6:12 says, ‘There was a violent earthquake, and the Sun became black like coarse black cloth, and the moon turned completely.
‘The stars fell down to the Earth, like ripe figs falling from the tree when a strong wind shakes it. Every mountain and island is moved from its place.
‘The polar flip will make the stars race across the sky, and the vacuum createrd by the reeling of the Earth will pull the atmosphere along the ground, trying to catch up.
‘The global earthquake will be so bad that every hill and mountain will crumble.
Revelations 6:15 says, ‘The kings of the Earth, the Princes, the commanding officers, the rich, the strong and every slave and free person hid themselves… from the face of him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb.’
