It looks like the doomsday has been postponed by a month. But infamous conspiracy theorist David Meade - who rose to viral fame last week in connection to the purported rapture - has recalibrated Doomsday and now predicts october 15 could be when the "action starts" and when the world will enter into a seven-year "Tribulation period".
Meade has earned a fair amount of publicity online for peddling a widely debunked claim that a planet called Nibiru is on a course toward Earth.
Meade previously asserted that the significance of 33 in numerology and its relation to the recent solar eclipse should be considered when calibrating the end of the world, thus where the September 23 date originated.
"Nothing is expected to happen in September", he wrote. "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", Meade said.
"When Nibiru 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". He claimed on his website that there were "major signs" in the skies that day, though he did not elaborate.

According to Meade, Sept. 23 was the date a mysterious planet, which he dubbed "Planet X", would collide with Earth. The date is 40 days after the total solar eclipse on August 21. Is this the end of the Church Age and the transition to the Day of the Lord? "The name Elohim, which is the name of God to the Jews, was mentioned 33 times [in the Bible]", Meade told the Washington Post in an interview last week. "The planet in question, Niburu, doesn't exist, so there will be no collision", NASA wrote.
Although a handful of people claimed to have caught Nibiru on camera, no concrete scientific evidence was produced over the weekend.
"This catastrophe was initially predicted for May 2003, but when nothing happened the doomsday date was moved forward to December 2012 and linked to the end of one of the cycles in the ancient Mayan calendar at the winter solstice in 2012", NASA said.
NASA also stated the "story of Niburu has been around for years, as has the "days of darkness" tale and is periodically recycled into new apocalyptic fables".
