David Meade, the "Christian numerologist" and "prophet" whose every prophecy has failed to materialize, has come through with about the end of the world, Patheos reports. However, this time he's providing a months-long range rather than a specific date, perhaps after having been burned too many times in the past.
Meade's most recent prophecy about the end of the world was that it would come about on April 23. The methodology Meade employed to get there is rather hazy, and involves the New Testament "rapture" as well as a mysterious planet that science apparently refuses to admit exists.
Nevertheless, as you have probably noticed, April 23 came and went, and there was no rapture. At least, if there was, it failed to escape the notice of every legitimate news organization on the planet, and the overwhelming majority of questionable ones as well. Even The National Enquirer seems to have missed this story.
Meade has two things to say about that.
Michael Jemison could have gotten away with the bizarre crime, but police say he just couldn't resist.
