The disaster for civilisation is predicted for September 22-28, with many saying a giant space rock will crash to Earth.

Are you worried?
Conspiracy theorists are predicting an enormous climate event which will destroy civilisation as we know it in just three months’ time.
Blogs and websites say the period between September 22-28 is the likely time frame for the end of the world.
And biblical theorists say the events will trigger the Rapture and the start of a seven-year-tribulation.
The theories, which are restricted to tiny minority of churches and groups, have been dismissed by scientists, as you might expect.
One theory is that a giant asteroid could strike the Earth.

But, fortunately for us, almost all asteroids are destroyed due to the extreme atmospheric friction heating they receive, breaking up into harmless shards that burn up before hitting the ground.
NASA said: “NASA knows of no asteroid or comet currently on a collision course with Earth, so the probability of a major collision is quite small.
“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.”
They are also developing strategies to help to identify asteroids that might pose a risk of hitting Earth and developing options for planetary defence.

But this hasn’t put off the conspiracy theorists.
They believe the events will spark the emergence of the Illuminati-sponsored New World Order (NWO) who will take charge of world affairs.
Many accounts of the apocalypse theory being expounded online agree that the event will be a climate catastrophe.
Most also say that the climate disaster will be caused by an huge asteroid impact which politicians know about but haven’t told us.
The date most often quoted for the Rapture event in September 24, with others saying a few days either side.
Some have even predicted the events will be started by CERN’s Large Hadron Collider.
One blogger, said: “The CERN logo is 666, the sign of the beast in a circle.
“The CERN collider looks like the all seeing eye or stargate we see so much of.”
