END OF THE WORLD MYTH: WILLIAM WHISTON

 If you believe we never landed on the moon and that the 9-11 attacks were staged by the U.S. government you probably also believe that the world will end this December 21st. Balladeer’s Blog has been examining past “end of the world” scares, and will continue to do so through at least December 22nd, 2012.

William Whiston, a British mathematician, grandly announced that according to his calculations the world would end on October 13th, 1736. He further stated that the opening act for this cosmic drama would be the destruction of London by a flood early on that same date.

Because no matter what the century, there’s never any shortage of people willing to be suckered in by the latest predictions of global doom, countless numbers of Londoners paniced on the target date. They made their way toward any high ground they could find or climbed on rooftops to await the deluge. Nothing happened, as usual with end of the world predictions, and the world saw plenty more October 13ths after that.

  1. I almost wish it were half true – I see a scene like that movie (can’t remember the name anymore) where they all run to wave at the aliens and BAMM the aliens blow the dumarses up !! Oh yeah – War of the Worlds…hehe

  2. There is a strong possibility that the end of the world might happen during Purim (this March). This information comes only from the Bible. There is a link between Judgment Day and the Feast of Purim, in the Book of Esther.

    The date for the end of the world cannot be based on someone’s interpretation of an old stone monument. The source of Truth must be the Bible, God’s Holy Word. For more information on The Link Between May 21, 2011 and the Feast of Purim in March 2012 please visit http://www.ebiblefellowship.com/.

    • Don’t agree, but I like links to more end of the world myths and I don’t consider something spam if it applies to the subject matter I posted about so here ya go!

  3. When will people wake up and realize we probably won’t have the luxury of a countdown to a specific date if a world-destroying catastrophe hits. It’ll probably come out of nowhere.

  4. People will believe anything! We’ll all still be here December 22nd.
