Experts are warning people to not believe the latest reports about the Biblical Rapture that will supposedly happen on April 23 because they are totally untrue. A group of Christian conspiracy theorists are claiming that the second coming of Jesus, known in the Bible as the Rapture, is going to be triggered by the mysterious planet Nibiru, on April 23. Well, it seems that you should not get ready for Doomsday yet, because the celestial bodies included in this prediction will not even be in the right place for this event to happen.
This claim is based on a Bible passage from Revelation 12:1-2 that talks about a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon at her feet and a crown of 12 stars above her head. The woman was pregnant and let out cries of pain as she gave birth. The conspiracy theorists think that the woman is actually the Virgo constellation. The sun and the moon will also be in Virgo, as well as Jupiter, which traditionally represents the Messiah. And as expected, the one responsible for this celestial alignment is none other than the mysterious planet Nibiru about which NASA has numerous times said that it doesn’t even exist.
The Rapture most likely won’t happen on April 23
NASA has been debunking Nibiru’s existence since 1995 but somehow, this fantasy planet still pops up in many Apocalypse scenarios. Back in 2009, the famous Neil deGrasse Tyson said that the theory according to which the world was going to end on December 21, 2012 was completely false. Back then, another celestial alignment was to blame, but deGrasse Tyson explained that the alignment actually happens every year.
However, it seems that the alignment won’t even happen on April 23. Jupiter will be in Libra all day and night while the moon will be between Leo and Cancer and the sun by Pisces.
