Sorry everyone but the world is apparently going to end this Spring

If you've been following the story of the mysterious Nibiru planet, you'll be aware that it was supposed to destroy Earth several times in 2017.

Conspiracy theorists believed that the mythical planet - which is also called Planet X - was going to appear in the sky and bring about the apocalypse in August, September, October, November and December last year.

As you are reading this, it's safe to say that none of those doomsday events actually happened - but theorists now believe it will happen later this year.

Christian numerologist David Meade thinks that the end of days will take place in the spring of 2018 and that it's all North Korea's fault.

The Express quotes Meade as saying to Pastor Paul Begley in a YouTube interview:

Here’s what I believe is going to start in the Spring of 2018. 

I believe North Korea will ascend to become a world-class superpower in March of 2018. 

I believe the great tribulation will begin after a short period of peace.

Planet X won’t appear until after the tribulation period commences, and I don’t think you can pinpoint a month, week and day but I do believe 2018 is high watch and I would be very surprised if a year from now, that we will be talking about anything except Nibiru.

They point towards to certain events this year that they believe signal an impending apocalypse: Israel will celebrate its 70th anniversary as an independent nation, the Winter Olympics, Donald Trump disarming North Korea and sightings of "twin suns".

Meade stops short of naming a specific date or month for the apocalypse, but he believes that we should all be on the lookout for Planet X from the Springtime onwards.

Of course, the likelihood of any of this happening is slim to none as Nasa have confirmed in the past that Planet X definitely does not exist and isn't going to kill us all.
