A perfect storm of religious prophecy, astronomical phenomena, global conflict, financial instability and natural disaster is conspiring to make this month’s “blood moon apocalypse” the most dreaded doomsday ever.
On Sept. 28, God and science will collide in spectacular fashion with the fourth lunar eclipse in just two years — a series known as a “tetrad” — each coinciding with a Jewish holy day.
The current tetrad of blood moons has fallen on April 14, 2014 (Passover), Oct. 8, 2014 (Feast of the Tabernacle), April 4, 2015 (Passover), and Sept. 28, which marks the first day of this year’s Feast of the Tabernacle.
According to the mongers of doom, this tetrad — the ninth to coincide with Jewish holy days since Jesus Christ — bears the signs of Old Testament prophecy heralding the end of times.
And the fourth and final of the lunar eclipses will also be a Super Moon, making it appear larger than usual and probably even more frightening to those convinced they’re about to meet their maker.
Ooh! It's the end of the world as we know it … again! Or … well, if not the immediate end of the world then the start of a long and painful process … maybe. Actually, if history is anything to go on, sit back, relax, have a Mai Tai, and enjoy the super blood moon.
