It has been claimed Nibiru, a mystical planet from the beyond the fringes of the solar system, is heading towards Earth.
Shock prophecies about the end of the world claim on September 23, Nibiru will appear in the skies to fulfil the biblical book of Revelations.
It has been claimed the monstrous planet – 10 times the size of Earth – will cause widespread chaos and destruction on Earth.
Despite the outlandish nature of the claims surrounding Nibiru, the idea that Planet X will smash into Earth is a misconception.
On the day of reckoning, the planet will only pass Earth but its mere presence will destroy the world as we know it in the months that follow according to some theories.
According to the conspiracy blog Planet X – The 2017 Arrival, Planet X's passage will be the 'greatest catastrophic infliction of life upon mankind, since Noah's Ark'.
Nibiru's immense gravitational waves will allegedly start the apocalypse by shifting the Earth's north and south poles to India and Brazil.
And it has been claimed terrifying earthquakes will then shake the world, tsunamis will cover the lands and violent volcano eruptions will cause a fiery maelstrom of death and destruction.
David Meade, the main purveyor of the Nibiru theory himself, has tried to clarify the wrongful assumption.
Writing a guest article for conspiracy website Planet X, the Christian numerologist explained: "Nothing is expected to happen in September.
"It is possible at the end of October we may be about to enter into the seven-year Tribulation period, to be followed by a Millennium of peace.
"When Wormwood (Revelation 8) is on close approach to Earth sometime during the Tribulation, you’ll have solar flares and a possible loss of the electrical grid for weeks, maybe longer."
