End of the world in September? Nasa forced to address radical asteroid apocalypse claims

According to biblical conspiracy theorists, our time is almost up.

There is a massive asteroid hurtling towards Earth, they claim, and it's going to smash into us this year.

They’ve even worked out the date that Earth will be struck -- between 22 and 28 September. The fracas has prompted Nasa to release a statement saying it completely rejects the report that an asteroid is going to strike Earth.

'There is an asteroid with our name on it and it will hit us'

“Nasa knows of no asteroid or comet on a collision course with Earth so the possibility of a strike is extremely slim,” it said in its statement.

Nasa also stated that a big asteroid wouldn’t hit Earth for at least 100 years.

Conspiracy theorists have stirred up a frenzy in recent weeks over the supposedly imminent asteroid strike on various blogs and websites. The sensational claims are believed to have first been shared by Rev. Efrain Rodriguez, who claims to have sent a letter to NASA in 2010, titled “Letter to the Space Agency… meteor heading toward Puerto Rico.”

He wrote he had received a message from God that an asteroid that would “soon be seen in the alarm systems of NASA” was on a collision course with Earth.

"The destruction will be immense throughout the island, coasts and also in the areas of mountains," Rodriguez claims. "As soon as the imminent impact of the asteroid is announced, everyone should move toward the mountains."

The conspiracy theorists also allege that this apocalypse will be followed by a seven-year period of suffering, and the development of a "New World Order". They say politicians all over the world know about the approaching asteroid but have decided not to warn their people about it.

Their claims may sound crazy, but scientists have long pointed out that asteroids pose a major threat to Earth. Brian Cox, professor of particle physics in the School of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Manchester, says we're not taking the threat seriously enough.

"There is an asteroid with our name on it and it will hit us," he told MailOnline. We had a ‘near-miss’ only a few months ago, he adds.

"We didn’t see it," he said. "We saw it on the way out, but if it had just been a bit further over it would have probably wiped us out. These things happen."
