The end-times prophecy folks are at it again.  We've had the "Harbinger" Heresy and the "Four Blood Moons" Heresy (see the web page: "The Harbinger Heresy/4 Blood Moons Heresy," on this website, for more information);
now we have the end-of-the-world folks proclaiming
September 23, 2017 as that date.

How unfortunate that so many individuals don't read their Bible for the truth about when Jesus will return.

The Internet has been full of
"fake news" about this one.

Oh, Waiter!

One Order of Crow!

From the standpoint of astronomy, there’s nothing unique or unusual about the sun, moon and planets – or the constellation Virgo – on September 23, 2017, despite claims on the Internet of a unique and significant celestial event, supposedly “mirroring” the Bible’s Book of Revelation. In the past 1,000 years, this same event has happened at least four times already, in 1827, 1483, 1293, and 1056.


I was thankful for my Astronomy Professor in college, who was a born-again Christian, made it clear that there is a difference between astronomy and astrology; and that it was God who made the universe and that Jesus said that no man knew the hour or day when He would return.


When I taught astronomy in a planetarium, I often used "Also Sprach Zarathustra" by Strauss, for a sunrise sequence.  Please sit back, relax, and enjoy the music; and remember that God is in control of the world and only He knows the day and hour when Jesus will return.
