There have been many theories and predictions about how and when the world will end. The day also known as Armageddon, the Apocalypse or Doomsday if you prefer. There are also more than one theory on how the world or Earth first came about, it all depends on what your beliefs are.
A lot of people tend to the mark year 2012 as being a significant one when it comes to the end of all time. This comes from an ancient Mayan cult’s theory that the date 21st December 2012 marks the end of a 5, 125 year cycle, a date which they believe something cataclysmic will happen.
You may even have seen the film 2012 in which the Earths plate become unstable causing a global flood and mass destruction. Funnily enough there is little evidence to suggest a catastrophe of such levels and also little is said about how the world will end.
Today a new prediction was announced by leader of the independent Christian Ministry Family Radio Worldwide, Harold Camping, who predicts the world will in fact end this year on May 21st. again there is no evidence to suggest this but just look for yourself the amount of buzz it has caused on Twitter by clicking the link.
What do you think of these predictions? When do you think the world will end?
