Humanity has always made predictions about the future, and many people in history have claimed to know what lies ahead. Even in the 20th century, science fiction writers made some surprisingly accurate predictions about the computerized space age of the 21st century.
Then there are the doomsday prophets who have repeatedly foretold the end of the world over the centuries. Fortunately, considering the hundreds of final data, we seem to have a pretty good success rate for surviving apocalypse theories. Some predictions were based on a detailed analysis of biblical references. Others concerned planetary motions and collisions with comets. Many were just scary, to the point where the date on which the expected apocalypse did not occur was even changed.
Today's Internet age offers the opportunity to make these theories accessible to a broad public within a short time. With sites for imaginary planets, fake news sites, and social media shares, these messages about the impending demise can quickly become viral. It is surprising how many people actually believed that the world would end tomorrow.
When the calendars were preparing for the year 2000, millions of people were heard for the end of the war in a combination of uncertainty about the beginning of a new era and widespread alarmism World as we know it.
Some believed that the problems of computer coding meant that programs could not detect the year 2000, crashed systems and caused chaos around the world. Many feared that computers would recognize the new date as 1900 on January 1, 2000.
Millions of dollars were spent globally to prepare for "Y2K" or the "Millennium Bug", which would affect banking and retail with emergency services and aircraft safety systems. Even the skeptics hoard additional food, water, and flashlights, "if, after all," essential services actually failed.
At midnight, the predicted global collapse did not occur and the world as we know it went on 
9 Collision with Nibiru
The fictitious planet "Nibiru" (also called "Planet X ") collided on 27 May 2003 for the first time with the earth. Nibiru is said Be a planet sitting on the edge of our solar system. Some supporters say the planet's orbit is controlled by a giant UFO.
Nancy Lieder claimed in 1995 that a brain implant allows her to communicate with aliens in the Zeta Reticuli system. She believed it was her chosen mission to warn the world of the impending end of humanity. 
NASA scientists have repeatedly refuted the existence of the planet, which is at best a small inconsistent comet, if it is at all. This has led to a coverup of believers in Nibiru.
Several dates have been proposed since 2003 for the Apocalypse. If the planet does not arrive, the date will be moved to a new estimated time of arrival. It seems that Lieber's extraterrestrial communication may be a bit unreliable.
8 Live On The Internet
Pastor Ronald Weinland, who lives in Ohio, went online to warn everyone that this would end September 30, 2008. The Minister of "Preparations for the Kingdom of God "also published a book in 2006 in which he announced that he and his wife had been appointed as witnesses to the end of the world. Citing biblical references and a complex series of events that would occur in the run-up to Armageddon in a series of live streams on the Internet, Weinland invited its followers to prepare for the end of 2008.
An error had occurred in Weinland's calculations, so the apocalypse did not appear as expected. According to his new calculations, it was due on May 7, 2012. Thereafter, it was May 19, 2013. Weinland was found guilty of tax evasion in 2012. 
7 Catastrophic earthquake
The evangelical transmitter Harold Camping has informed the world that it should end on May 21, 2011. His radio ministry invested in an extensive advertising campaign to warn the world of impending demise. Bulletin boards, automobiles and radio advertising spread the word that the end of the world was near.
According to Mr. Camping's revelations, true believers would ascend to heaven that day, while the rest of the world would suffer catastrophic earthquakes. A number of followers have separated in preparation from their worldly goods, only to be disappointed when the day passed without the destiny of destiny.
A review of the script revealed Mr. Camping that he had not considered God's mercy. This would extend the day of the impending demise to October of that year. The previous forecasts by Mr. Camping on a 1994 apocalypse were also unsuccessful. 
6 Comet Elenin
In history, the appearance of comets has always been regarded as a harbinger of fate. When the Russian astronomer Leonard Elenin first discovered the comet Elenin at the end of 2010, the doomsday theorists hit the Internet. The astronomers of the armchair predicted from August to October 2011 everything from earthquakes and tidal waves to a complete collision with the earth.
This was despite the fact that the comet was about 647 million kilometers from Earth when it was first discovered. In the mainstream news, the existence of the comet was almost ignored, according to space researchers, not really much to report was.
NASA astronomers assured the world that the comet, as we know, does not pose a threat to life.  In fact, the object broke into small pieces during its journey through the inner solar system in 2011.
5 A Transformation of Sixes
Followers of the Miami-based sect "Growing Mercy" announced that the end of the world would come on June 30, 2012. According to their leader, Jose Luis de Jesus Miranda, his followers were to be turned into magical creatures that fly and walk through walls. The cult leader claimed that he was a reincarnation of Jesus, a fact revealed to him through his conversation with the prophets.
According to the cult, the Earth's rotation would accelerate to a speed of 107,289 kilometers per hour on June 30, 2012. Jose Luis de Jesus Miranda turned 66 in 2012. All cult members were tattooed with the numbers "666". These inexplicable coincidences pointed to the inevitable end of the world, as we know it at the predicted date.  
Billboards were set up to proclaim the day his followers would conquer the world. As usual, arrived on July 1, 2012 without incident.
4 Maya Doomsday
According to some scholars, the ancient Mayan calendar suggested that the end of the world was approaching just before Christmas 2012. Misinterpretations of the ancient calendar indicated that on the 21st December 2012 ended, signaling the end of time.
So popular was the "2012 phenomenon" that many pointed to natural disasters and world events at that time, as an indication that the calendar belonged to the past Prophecy unfolded. Once again, the Internet was flooded with theories of galactic collisions that marked the end of the world that day.
Once again, NASA scientists took out the theories of the end of the world and searched for experts to explain the complexity of the Mayan calendar. The Mayan perception of time was infinite, and therefore it could not be said that the calendar gives a particular date in time or can be read in the context of our modern calendars. In Mayan culture, there was no other evidence of a cataclysm at that time or a potentially buried comet or planet currently on NASA radar.
NASA was so confident that the Earth was certain that it released its press release a day earlier. As with previous predictions, the world continued on December 22, 2012. 
3 Rasputin's Apocalypse
Grigori Rasputin was a saintly man famous for his connections to the ill-fated Russian royal family. The "crazy monk" was described by Rasputin as "mystical powers" who allegedly healed the Russian prince of the blood disorder hemophilia. In letters to the Russian royal family during the revolution, he made a series of precise "predictions", such as his death by government officials and the subsequent murder of the Russian royal family.
However, this may have been more of a keen understanding of the political turmoil of the time than any mystical revelation. Among the predictions in his recent letters was the suggestion that the "second coming" would take place on August 23, 2013, and that the earth would be consumed by fire – another apocalypse that was not expressed. 
2 Blood Moon Prophecy
In 2014, we again managed to escape the "Blood Moon Prophecy". This was indeed the 62nd time in 2,000 years that we have escaped. Moon-induced apocalypse, especially the end that is supposed to come after a series of four lunar eclipses called tetrad. Biblical scholars have long cited references to Acts and Revelation in which "the sun is turned into darkness and the moon is turned to blood" as a biblical affirmation that the lunar eclipse is the imminent end of the world.
Christian pastor Mark Bilz predicted A series of solar eclipses in 2014 would mark the beginning of the Apocalypse, while John Hagee, author of Four Blood Moons also suggested that the series of blood moons marks the end of the Apocalypse Would mean world. Both predictions attracted a great deal of attention, and some actually hoarded supplies in preparation for the imminent apocalypse. However, as with any lunar eclipse before them, nothing happened except the temporary shadow of the moon. 
1 Nibiru (Again)
2015, Nibiru He again threatened life on Earth by claiming that the collision course with our planet was on the 23rd September of this year would end. According to conspiracy theorist David Meade, NASA hid information about the planet from the general public.
Biblical verses indicated that the apocalypse would definitely arrive shortly. When Nibiru apparently missed the connecting flight in September 2015, the estimated time of arrival was changed to 15 October this year. Nibiri's latest no-show was on April 23, 2018.
NASA continued to reassure worried star gazers that Nibiru was nothing but an Internet fraud. Considering that the mythical planet has not appeared this decade, you tend to believe it.
