Wait, WHAT!?

According to a viral post on wlky.com, the world is ending on September 23rd, 2017. The article hardly gave any information at all on how unnamed “conspiracy theorists” have come to this conclusion. The article only loosely mentions the recent solar eclipse and “Revelation 12 Sign” which is apparently a certain belief surrounding the apocalypse.

This is literally the whole article (and a really annoying AD):

There was also a video, which gave a few more details on the “Revelation 12 Sign,” but this is not enough information for our purposes here, so I went upstream to find out if reliable sources are talking about this.

So I googled, “September 23rd, 2017” which came up with quite a few articles.

I clicked on the NY Daily Times article, who at least gives sufficient background information for why this end of the world claim is being made. Apparently we can blame Christian researcher, David Meade.

NY Daily Times also noted that NASA debunked Meade’s theory. Luckily, they provided a link! So I clicked that and it took me to an article published by The Washington Post.

This article provided even more in-depth information about the planet Nibiru. It even included a video from senior scientist David Morrison debunking the apocalypse:

We could probably stop here, as we found the original claim to be false, proven by NASA, but we could also go as far as finding something on NASA’s website about this, then we’d know for sure:
