9 Times the World Didn't End As Predicted

The world is ending soon, according to megachurch pastor Pat Robertson. Again.

This isn't the first time the 84-year-old Robertson has forecast the end, but according to MySanAntonio.com, he says an asteroid could hit the Earth any day now.

“It could be next week, it could be 1,000 years from now," he said April 21 on his show, "The 700 Club," the Raw Story reports. But nevertheless, we want to be ready whenever the Lord says, ‘I’m wrapping it up, and it’s time to come home.’”

Warnings of Armageddon have been issued by Robertson in the past, usually involving a massive asteroid and an advertisement to buy his book that explains more about the end, according to the Huffington Post.

If we can assume his latest prediction will be as false as the others, let's take a look at a few other times we've been issued a fruitless warning about end times.

Despite a record warm July, accumulating snow managed to dust the summit of Mauna Kea on the Big Island. Here are some details about the above events.

What the 5th IPCC Assessment Doesn't Include

By Angela Fritz
September 27, 2013

Melting permafrost has the potential to release an additional 1.5 trillion tons of carbon into the atmosphere, and could increase our global average temperature by 1.5°F in addition to our day-to-day human emissions. However, this effect is not included in the IPCC report issued Friday morning, which means the estimates of how Earth's climate will change are likely on the conservative side.
