Will the World Really End in 2016

Can we reasonably expect a nuclear war this year? Or will we be destroyed by an asteroid crashing into our planet? Or are we going to be swallowed by the black hole? Anyone who pays attention to YouTube videos or conspiracy theorists for long enough will soon begin to believe that all of this is indeed true. Historically, people have been suggesting dates predicting the end of the world for a very long time.

Now it seems as if every year there is some new theory predicting the end of the world, even going so far as to predict the dates when this will happen. Each time these theories are proved false, someone else comes up with a new theory – and a new date.

2016 too begins with such predictions. In fact, we don’t even have to tell people not to take these predictions and their associated dates seriously, because they too will end up like all the other times in the past.

Here we present some of them only for reporting purposes.

  • Some people seem to suggest that aliens from outer space have communicated that the world will end on 14th February 2016.
  • Some attribute the end of the world theory to a scientist from NASA. It has not yet been proved whether the scientist in question indeed belongs to NASA or not.
  • A planet is supposed to crash into the Earth in May 2016.
  • A pastor has announced on YouTube that God has informed him personally that the world will end in October. It is yet to be proven whether he is indeed a pastor or a fraud.
