We're All Going To Die On 23 April Because Of 'Death Planet', According To Conspiracy Theorists

Well guys, it's been fun but, sadly, all good things must come to an end, including life on this planet.

Yup, I hate to be the one to break it to you all but the end of the world is nigh. It's just around the corner, in fact, so don't bother booking that summer holiday - the world ends on 23 April.

According to one theory, the Rapture will be kicking off in a couple of weeks and we'll have the second coming of Christ when the sun and moon and Jupiter will all be in Virgo.

Astrological constellations are said to match up with passage 12:1-2 of the Book of Revelations - the passage reads: "And a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of 12 stars. She was pregnant and was crying out in birth pains and the agony of giving birth."

Naysayers have responded to the latest claims by saying that this particular astrological alignment happens every 12 years, but conspiracy theorist David Meade believes otherwise.

He said: "By early April of 2018, the disappearance of the Church (all true Christians worldwide also known as the Rapture) will occur.

"This will be followed quickly by the rise of the Antichrist, the appearance of Planet X and World War III.

"Seven years of Tribulation will ensure. This is beyond any shadow of doubt."

He's also warned of massive volcanic eruptions - so, that's that then.

Mysterious Planet X, or Nibiru, is a conspiracy theorists favourite, but NASA has always denied its exsistence.

In a statement, a NASA spokesperson said: "Nibiru and other stories about wayward planets are an internet hoax. There is no factual basis for these claims.

"If Nibiru or Planet X were real and headed for an encounter with the Earth, astronomers would have been tracking it for at least the past decade, and it would be visible by now to the naked eye."

And, of course, this is far from the first time we've been told that we're all going to die a horrible, fiery death, isn't it? I've lost count of the amount of End Of The Worlds I've survived.
