In 1992, Harold Camping published a book titled 1994? in which he predicted the world would end sometime that year. Humanity managed to dodge that bullet, so Camping redid his calculations and set May 21, 2011 as doomsday. You and I both know how that went.
He once again pushed the date back to October 21, 2011, but by then we were all too busy worrying about what the end of the Mayan calendar on December 21, 2012 would mean for us. That too turned out to be just another scare.
Thankfully, we are still alive, but apparently not for much longer according to some recent predictions. Back in April, a Texas-based psychic claimed that the end of times is scheduled to take place between May 13 and October 13, 2017. Horacio Villegas said that this time around the beginning of the end will be marked by nuclear warfare.
A few months after Villegas's troubling predictions, another doomsday theory has been circling the internet, but this time the date is based on a prophecy from the Bible.
According to the theorists, the Rapture will be taking place this year and it will be happening sooner than you'd expect.
