Anyone with important chores to complete should finish them before July 29, or it might be too late because that’s when a polar shift will cause the end of the world and usher in biblical Armageddon.
At least, that’s what a doomsday group that likes to predict the end of the world is saying in their new 17-minute video titled, “Why The World Will End Surely On 29 July 2016.”
The group, End Times Prophecies, is predicting the ongoing phenomenon known as a polar flip will start a series of events that will lead to the end of the world and biblical Armageddon, according to their video.
“The polar flip will make the stars race across the sky, and the vacuum from the reeling of the Earth will pull the atmosphere along the ground, trying to catch up, creating what is known as a roll cloud.”
The video featuring a woman’s voice narrating bible verses has been viewed more than 800,000 times.
At least we won’t have to worry about any of the problems engulfing the world today.
The polar shift is a geomagnetic phenomenon where the invisible magnetic North Pole of our planet slowly moves north because of shifting liquid iron in the Earth’s core. Scientists have proven the Earth undergoes a full geomagnetic reversal about every 780,000 years.
Instead of a sudden shift in polarity, the magnetic pole moves slowly over the face of Earth over thousands of years. Since scientists first started recording its movements, the pole has slowly shifted more than 600 miles.
The movement of the Earth’s magnetic North Pole has speed up in the 20th century, and it’s now moving about 40 miles per year. NASA has noticed the drift will speed up between July 14 and August 19, and that appears to be the doomsday group’s scientific basis for their claim about the “end of days.”
That’s different from the geographic North Pole, which has been gradually moving south as the weight from melting Arctic glaciers has slowly redistributed the weight of Earth’s oceans.
NASA confirms that a geomagnetic polar shift is indeed currently going on, but says there’s no need to panic because earthlings will hardly notice it.
“While the conditions that cause polarity reversals are not entirely predictable … there is nothing in the millions of years of geologic record to suggest that any of the … doomsday scenarios connected to a pole reversal should be taken seriously.”
That’s good news for earthlings because the doomsday group, End Times Prophecies, is worried the polar shift will temporarily weaken the planet’s magnetic field that protects earthlings from dangerous solar radiation.
Another theory says the polar shift would alter Earth’s rotation causing severe chaos to break out on our planet, but again, NASA scientists tell us not to worry.
“Even with a weakened magnetic field, Earth’s thick atmosphere also offers protection against the sun’s incoming particles.”
It’s important to note that the reversal of Earth’s magnetic poles takes thousands of years to complete, so for all we know the process has been going on for years and could be responsible for all the drastic weather changes and seismic activity.
For those keeping score at home, the doomsday group, End Times Prophecies, also predicted an asteroid would hit Earth in May, and President Barack Obama would announce he was the Antichrist in June, according to Go Knoxville.
In the end, the only result of a polar shift may be that the arrows of modern compasses need to be reversed to correspond to the new placement of the magnetic north pole, according to NASA.
“A reversal might, however, be good business for magnetic compass manufacturers.”
