With the alleged nuclear shenanigans in North Korea and escalating tensions in the Middle East, I think we can all agree that we live in interesting times and not necessarily in a good way.
So we’ve got some good news for you, it may all be over soon. As in everything will be over because the world is going to be consumed in the flames of Armageddon.
Okay we may have over promised when we said it was good news…
Anyway, according to The Daily Star scriptures from the books of Isaiah, Revelation and Jeremiah have predicted the end of the world following a huge war in the Middle East which will kill two billion people.
Apparently it’s the destruction of the Syrian capital Damascus that’ll kick the whole apocalypse thing off.
The verses from the book of Isaiah read:
The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap.
The cities of Aroer are forsaken: They will be for flocks to lie down in and there will be no-one to frighten them… sovereignty will disappear from Damascus and the remnant of Aram.
Meanwhile Revelations, the book that according to some biblical scholars predicts the end of the world, claims that four angels bound in the River Euphrates will be released after which they’ll slay ‘third part of men’.
This apparently refers to the two billion poor sods who are for the chop when the angels start kicking ten shades of shit out of the world. Even better, the verses reportedly claim that Meshech, the original word for Moscow, will take part in the battle.
This would all be quite frightening if it wasn’t for the fact that no one can see into the future and the book of Revelations is believed to be an allegory for the fall of the Roman Empire not a prophetic vision of the future yet to come.
If you’re going to be scared of anything be scared of heart disease or aneurysms, they’re far more likely to kill you!
More of a concept than a journalist, Tom Percival was forged in the bowels of Salford University from which he emerged grasping a Masters in journalism.
Since then his rise has been described by himself as ‘meteoric’ rising to the esteemed rank of Social Editor at UNILAD as well as working at the BBC, Manchester Evening News, and ITV.
He credits his success to three core techniques, name repetition, personality mirroring, and never breaking off a handshake.
