Christian Group Claims Wednesday Is Doomsday, But Like, For Real This Time
The leader of an online gathering of Christians headquartered in Philadelphia insists October 7 (oh geez, that’s today!) is the day Armageddon begins. “According to what the Bible is presenting, it does appear that October 7 will be the day that God has spoken of: in which, the world will pass away,” Chris McCann, the leader and founder of the eBible Fellowship, told The Guardian on Tuesday.
Earth will be “gone forever. Annihilated,” McCann said. Obliterated “with fire.” I mean, that’s really the only way I want to go out. This might come as a bit of a shock to others out there. For it was just a few weeks ago other religious groups foresaw the rare celestial event of the “super blood moon eclipse” as a telltale sign that the end times were nigh. But of course, all we got out of the “blood moon” were some really fantastic images. But for McCann, this isn’t his first “end times” rodeo. Back in 2011, the eBible Fellowship predicted the world would end on May 21. When that didn’t happen, they switched the date to October (must have forgotten to carry the one…). Those dates McCann now claims were “significant.” May 21, 2011 was actually “judgment day,” according to McCann, the day God stopped “saving people.” Then, 1,600 days from that day the world would end, hence, October 7, 2015. 1,600? Nice round number there. Though McCann can’t narrow it down to the exact hour (no way am I driving into work if I’m going to get stuck in Apocalypse traffic), he’s pretty darn sure it’ll happen. “There’s a strong likelihood that this will happen,” McCann told The Guardian, then acknowledged: “Which means there’s an unlikely possibility that it will not.”
