Doomsday passes by without incident

ACCORDING to a Christian group, you shouldn't be reading this article as the world was to be engulfed and destroyed by a great fire on October 7.

The Daily Telegraph reports Chris McCann, leader of the eBible fellowship and all-round God expert, recently predicted doomsday was upon us.

Mr McCann has been delivering his warnings in his five-part podcast series, Why October 7,2015 is the likely end of the world.

During the podcasts he explains that October 7 will be the day God has spoken of.

It's the day the Earth "passes away", the day we should have been "gone forever. Annihiliated".

He said: "God destroyed the Earth with water, by a flood , in the days of Noah. And he says he'll not do that again, not by water. But he does say in 2nd Peter 3 that he'll destroy it by fire."

Mr McCann did however offer up the disclaimer that "there's an unlikely possibility that it will not".

He had previously claimed the world would end of May 21, 2011 but had since revised that date.

So while we may have lived to see another day, perhaps we should keep our fingers crossed for our Northern Hemisphere friends who are still trying to see out October 7. Maybe the end of the world works on Pacific Standard Time.
