    The world WON’T end in September: Nasa forced to address radical claims a giant asteroid will soon destroy humanity:eek::eek::eek::eek::eek:
    • Claim first made by self-proclaimed prophet Rev Efrain Rodriguez
    • He says an asteroid will strike near Puerto Rico triggering earthquakes
    • His claims have gone viral, forcing the space agency to speak up
    • 'The probability of a major collision is quite small,' according to Nasa

    A massive asteroid is on a collision course with Earth, and it is large enough to spell the end of humanity.

    This is the radical claim of an online community of biblical theorists who say that life as we know it will be wiped out between 22 to 28 September this year.

    Despite their lack of credentials, the popularity of the prediction has now forced Nasa to speak up, dismissing the theory as unfounded.

    According to the radical rumours, the asteroid would strike near Puerto Rico triggering earthquakes and tsunamis sometime between between 22 to 28 September this year

    'Nasa knows of no asteroid or comet currently on a collision course with Earth, so the probability of a major collision is quite small,' a Nasa spokesperson said.

    '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.'

    According to the theorists, governments of the world's leading nations are aware of what will happen.

    They believe they are keeping the information secret to prevent mass panic and allow the rich and famous time to prepare for the event.

    Other accounts of the apocalypse theory being shared online agree that the event will be a climate catastrophe. Others have even predicted the events will be started by Cern's Large Hadron Collider (pictured)

    The Inquisitr reports that self-proclaimed prophet Rev Efrain Rodriguez made the original prediction after getting a message from God.

    According to the 'message', Rodriguez says the asteroid would strike near Puerto Rico triggering earthquakes and tsunamis.

    This, he adds, will devastate the east coast of the US, Mexico, central and southern America.

    He warned that Nasa should issue an alert 'so people can be relocated from the areas that are to be affected.'

    THERE IS AN ASTEROID WITH OUR NAME ON IT, SAYS BRIAN COX

    ‘There is an asteroid with our name on it and it will hit us,’ Professor Brian Cox told MailOnline

    While the latest claims of a killer asteroid are unfounded, scientists have long said that these space rocks pose a major threat to Earth.

    In September, Brian Cox said we are at risk of being wiped out by asteroids – and we’re not taking the threat seriously.

    ‘There is an asteroid with our name on it and it will hit us,’ Professor Cox told MailOnline. In fact, the Earth had a ‘near-miss’ only a few months ago.

    ‘We didn’t see it,’ says the 46-year-old. ‘We saw it on the way out, but if it had just been a bit further over it would have probably wiped us out. These things happen.’

    The bus-sized asteroid, named 2014 EC, came within 38,300 (61,637km) miles of Earth in March - around a sixth of the distance between the moon and our planet.

    And it wasn’t the only one threatening Earth. Nasa is currently tracking 1,400 'potentially hazardous asteroids' and predicting their future approaches and impact probabilities.

    The threat is so serious that former astronaut Ed Lu has described it as ‘cosmic roulette’ and said that only ‘blind luck’ has so far saved humanity from a serious impact.

    Other accounts of the apocalypse theory being shared online agree that the event will be a climate catastrophe.

    Some cite a meeting between French foreign minister Laurent Fabius and US Secretary of State John Kerry in May 2014 is further evidence the Rapture is approaching, according to the Huffington Post.

    Others 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.'

    Maybe NASA is listening to the Wig and feels it needs to come to an end.

    NASA is lying. They just don't want panic in the streets. We are doomed. Doomed I tell you.

    Yep - just like in "Seeking a Friend..." - you'll think you're going to have days until the end, and all of sudden, the countdown clock is going to go to 16 hours. Nothing to worry about...I'm sure everyone will remain calm and introspective.

    Have you ever known an online community of biblical activists to be wrong?

    Now pardon me while I go tell my boss to fuck off and transfer all of my assets to the Church. I've got a date with destiny!
