Flipping heck!

According the odd group End Times Prophecies today’s the day the world ends.

It placed a 17-minute video clip on YouTube on 9 July arguing – with the assistance of plentiful quotes from the Bible – that a polar flip “will make the stars race across the sky, and the vacuum from the reeling of the Earth will pull the atmosphere along the ground, trying to catch up, creating what is known as a roll cloud.”

The polar reversal, or flip, is a routine global phenomenon, and a very slow process, that happens gradually as a result of shifting liquid iron in the Earth’s core.

End Times Prophecies doesn’t have a great record when it comes to predictions.

Among its forecasts were a giant collision between Earth and an asteroid in May, and that Barack Obama would reveal himself to be the Antichrist in June.

What is a polar reversal? The Earth’s magnetic pull reverses itself. The North Magnetic Pole goes south, while the South Magnetic Pole goes north.

The poles switch ends every half million years or so; we’re due for another switch in the next few thousand years.
