The average human being can do a lot of incredible things, but there are still a number of things, such as time travel and the ability to predict the future, that has yet to be achieved.
For centuries, clairvoyants, psychics, and religious conspiracy theorists have been making predictions about how and when the world will end, but lately, it seems as though, the sense of urgency has increased and we've been hearing more predictions than ever before.
Despite the fact that none of the doomsday predictions have ever come true (we're still alive, aren't we?), there is one man who is convinced that the world will end in 2018. In fact, his warning comes just a few months before the date he provided.
Conspiracy theorist Mathieu Jean-Marc Joseph Rodrigue believes that the Bible's Book of Revelations holds the answer to when the world will end, and he has managed to find the exact passage that has signs pointing to 2018 as Earth's final year.
The passage Rodrigue is talking about reads as follows: "He was given authority to act for 42 months."
Based on numerology, when the passage is "added to the crop harvest and price" it reveals date of the impending apocalypse.
"I heard a voice in the middle of the four living beings," said Rodrigue. "This is wisdom. He who has intelligence can interpret the figure of the beast. It represents the name of a man. His figure is 666."
So when will the world end according to Rodrigue?
Following a complicated process of adding up the number from the passage to his earlier calculations, Rodrique concluded that the world will come to an end on June 24, 2018.
However, the one thing Rodrigue did not do is explain what will cause the Rapture and how it will transpire. I mean, he never said he was psychic.
This isn't the first time that someone has used the Bible to make predictions about the doomsday.
Last year, some religious numerologists matched the dates of the major events that took place, like the solar eclipse and hurricanes, to the numbers in the Bible's Book of Revelation and in Luke 21:25 to 26.
They came up with a theory known as Revelation 12, which uses astrological events to predict the start of the Rapture. As per their claims, the signs all point towards September 23 as the date of the Rapture and the second coming of Jesus Christ. On that day, astronomers say that Virgo and Leo will reunite and kick-start the events leading up to the end of the world.
A few months prior, Dr. F Kenton Beshore, the president of the World Bible Society, claimed that the apocalypse will take place on or before 2021 and Jesus will walk the earth in 2028. He also stated that so far seven major prophecies have already been fulfilled, 5 are currently in the process of being fulfilled, and there are 15 more to go, including Jesus' impending return.
Clearly, past doomsday predictions have been way off the mark, so it's highly advised that you take Rodrigue's claims with a grain of salt.
