The world is currently gripped over concerns that an asteroid is on a collision course with the earth in a massive event that could wipe out all life.
The claims have even forced top scientists at NASA to speak out as thousands fear the ‘asteroid apocalypse’.
Conspiracy theorists across the globe are predicting the end of the world could come in just three months time as the cataclysmic climate event is set to destroy civilization this September, according to end-of-time predictors on various blogs and websites.
According to the Coventry Telegraph , many are suggesting that the end of the world as we know it isn’t actually that far away, with the latest in a long line of predicted apocalypses set for 2015.
The Mayan calendar ended in 2012, which triggered plenty of feeling that December 21 of that year would be the end of the world, some twelve years after the Y2K Millennium theory.
So, what’s this new one about?
When will the world end?

The date most often quoted for the Rapture event in September 24, with others saying a few days either side.
How will it end?
Many accounts of the apocalypse theory being expounded online agree that the event will be a climate catastrophe.
Most also say that the climate disaster will be caused by an huge asteroid impact which politicians know about but haven’t told us.
What do scientists say?
These theories, which are restricted to tiny minority of churches and groups, have been dismissed by scientists and are thought to be well wide of the mark.
Fortunately for us, almost all asteroids are destroyed due to the extreme atmospheric friction heating they receive, breaking up into harmless shards that burn up before hitting the ground.
So, it won’t happen?
A spokesperson said: “NASA knows of no asteroid or comet currently on a collision course with Earth, so the probability of a major collision is quite small.
“In fact, as best as we can tell, no large object is likely to strike the Earth any time in the next several hundred years.”
They are also developing strategies to help to identify asteroids that might pose a risk of hitting Earth and developing options for planetary defence.
What are the likely causes?
Some have even predicted the events will be started by CERN’s Large Hadron Collider.
One blogger, said: “The CERN logo is 666, the sign of the beast in a circle.
“The CERN collider looks like the all seeing eye or stargate we see so much of.”
Others believe the events will spark the emergence of the Illuminati-sponsored New World Order (NWO) who will take charge of world affairs.
