Doomsday predictions come and go. However, concerning Saint Malachy’s doomsday prediction I am actually uneasy. Something about this his prophecy feels dangerous. I have friends who are preppers. They are truly storing food away and preparing for the worst. I chuckle at them, but with the arrival of Pope Francis, I might become a prepper myself.
The preppers I know imagine an economic collapse and the United States will become like Greece. I don’t see that happening. It would take a lot to collapse America and the global economy.
What could destroy modern civilization? A black swan event…a black swan such as an asteroid strike. Imagine something big dropping into either the Pacific or Atlantic oceans creating a global tsunami (like what occurred in Japan recently) destroying the coastlines of continents. We had a small asteroid explode over Russia just recently. We never knew it was coming.
According to these prophecies, an asteroid strike is what we are facing in the near future. The time is now to invest in sacks of rice and beans. You’ll likely never eat them, but if the Big Black Swan Event arrives, rice and beans will be like currency.
“In the final persecution of the Holy Roman Church there will reign Peter the Roman, who will feed his flock amid many tribulations, after which the seven-hilled city will be destroyed and the dreadful Judge will judge the people. The End.”
Nostradamus, Quatrain II.46
“The great star for seven days shall burn So nakedly clear like two suns appearing The large dog all night howling While the great Pontiff shall change his territory.”
Revelation Chapter 8:8
”And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood”
