The End Is Near -- For The September 'Asteroid Apocalypse' Myth

Jose Florez

Time to put your tin foil hats on -- or maybe not, since theorists believe it makes it easier for the government "to hear us."

Conspiracy theorists are once again making headlines in regards to the end of times -- and this time they swear it's the real deal.

The last time conspiracy theorists had the pleasure of brainwashing the entire planet, was in December of 2012, when the majority of the human population genuinely believed the world was coming to an end.

People had quit their jobs and sold their homes right before the 21st of December. But when the 21st had arrived, everyone was left in a state of manic disgust.

The Mayan 2012 apocalypse phenomena ended up becoming the biggest end of times prediction in human history. It was so immense, that the prediction spawned a successful blockbuster film and significantly rose travel and tourism.

But now, a new end of times prediction is causing mass anxiety and is also giving conspiracy theorists a new thumb to suck on.

To be exact, theorists believe the apocalypse is expected to transpire sometime between September 22-28, 2015.

This means that it's only a couple of months away -- not enough time to manifest itself into something as substantial as the Mayan apocalypse. However, it's still not stopping conspiracy theorists from grabbing media coverage.

And not even NASA can fix this.

NASA was forced to respond to all the hoopla about earth's upcoming "extinction." The American space agency gave a statement.

"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."

And of course, we can't leave out the internet's stylish responses to the September prediction.
