Religious Group Proclaim Doomsday On August 21, 2017

More than we would like to admit, doomsday predictions are quite common among religious groups. Some groups are even confident enough to proclaim their own doomsday time-stamps. Fortunately for us, none of those doomsday time-stamps have proven to be true.

Still, that hasn't halted religious groups from proclaiming when and how the world will end. The most recent time-stamp of the apocalypse? The world will end on August 21, 2017. 

Many of these doomsday predictions are actually based on the Book of Revelation in the Bible. While more sensible individuals would interpret the texts figuratively, some take the writings too literally.

For instance, one entry in the Book of Revelation talks about a lady who is "clothed in the sun with the moon at her feet." This lady is then chased by a Satanic, seven-headed winged serpent that needs to eat her unborn child. According to the Book of Revelation, this is the point at which the apocalypse will happen. 

Those deciphering the Book of Revelation believe that the lady is actually the Earth, and that her end will happen when the moon overshadows the sun. 

According to NASA, the next solar eclipse will take place on August 21, 2017. It will also be the first solar eclipse in America after almost 40 years. 

You might have guessed already, the doomsday theorists believe that this next solar eclipse is what the Book of Revelation might be talking about. 

Time after time, these doomsday theorists never had a trustworthy reputation. Nevertheless, whether the world will end on August 21, 2017 or not, we should always make sure to live our life to the fullest.
