In 2019, for example, it was predicted that the world would end in a nuclear war, an asteroid impact, and even a new ice age, just to name a few, but we now know better don’t we?
According to some, this year is no exception and we need to prepare for the end of days. There have been various predictions made, but the following are among the most popular with enthusiasts:
- “World One”. A computer program named “World One,” which was developed in 1973 at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), predicts 2020 to be the year when a series of catastrophic events kick off a 20-year process of a slow demise of human civilization.
- The second coming. According to a 1973 book by astrologer Jeane Dixon, Jesus is scheduled to return sometime in the years 2020–2037 bringing with him the apocalypse. But then again, she also predicted the cure for cancer by 1967.
- The Viking stone. – A team of Swedish researchers recently managed to decipher the writings on a stone slab dated back to 800 CE. It turned out to be a Viking prophecy about the end of the world due to a “battle with the weather”—a wording eerily reminiscent of the currently unfolding climate crisis.
If you are worried because of the present pandemic, you might put your mind at rest by considering that even the Mayans predicted the end of the world on 21st December 2012, along with all the other predictions, including the 1999 arrival from the sky of the “king of Terror” as prophesied by Nostradamus
