World Predicted to End Sept. 23 | Your Bucket List Just Got Shorter

David Meade is reportedly the man behind the doomsday prophecy circulating in stories online which predict the world will in just one short day, on Sept. 23, 2017. The self-described “specialist in research and investigations” predicts a planet called Nibiru is headed toward Earth, and its passing will cause catastrophes such as earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and tidal waves.

David Meade predicts planet Nibiru will hit Earth

David Meade is reportedly the man behind the doomsday prophecy circulating in stories online which predict the world will end on Sept. 23, 2017 due to a planet headed toward Earth.

Meade describes all of this as the “story of the century.” However, the mainstream news reports are distorting his claims, Meade says on his website, stating that any report which says he believes the world will end this weekend are false.

Meade lays out his ideology in his book, “Planet X – The 2017 Arrival,” which the author describes as “a compendium of information from every sphere – astronomical, scientific, the Book of Revelation and geopolitics.”

If the world really were to end Saturday, what would you want to check off on your bucket list right away? U.S. residents wouldn’t likely have much time for travel around the world, so it might be best to head to some places right here within the country

1.) The Black Hills in South Dakota. The Black Hills are likely not even on many people’s bucket list, but Deadwood (the place from the HBO show with the same name) is located in the Black Hills, as are the graves of Calamity Jane and Wild Bill, as well as other landmarks featured on the show. While there, you can also visit a casino owned by Kevin Kostner that houses props from his movies. For motorcycle fanatics, the Sturgis rally is held in the Black Hills (but it’s too late for that event now, which took place in August). And, of course, the 60-foot-tall Mt. Rushmore is located in the Black Hills.

2.) Mendenhall Glacier Caves, Alaska. A 12-mile glacier in Juneau houses some majestic ice caves. There is even a trail visits can follow to get a chance to see the sites close-up. The glacier ends at Mendenhall Lake and can be also be viewed simply from the visitor center.

3.) Maroon Bells-Snowmass Wilderness, Colorado. Located in the Elk Mountains of central Colorado, this wilderness area features more than 100 miles of trails. The entire area takes up over 181,000 acres. The area spans the White River and Gunnison National Forests.

4.) The Appalachian Trail. What would a bucket list be if it didn’t include this adventure? The 2,190-mile path leads through 14 states and boasts 3 million visitors each year. It passes through the Great Smoky Mountains in Tennessee.

5.) Disney World. If you haven’t yet been to the happiest place on earth, now is your last chance. Featured at the Florida destination are four theme parks, two water parks, and 27 resort hotels, all spanning over 27,000 acres of land. Football players proudly proclaim their plans to visit this magical place after Super Bowl wins, and celebrities can often be glimpsed enjoying the parks with their children.
