But Meade, who is conveniently promoting a Planet X book, says he's found proof in the Bible. Earlier in the year, he predicted the end would come in October, but he's bumped the prediction up to September. "The Great American Eclipse of August 21, 2017, is a major - huge - harbinger," Meade told The Daily Mail.
In addition to Biblical evidence, Meade cites something called the "33 Convergence" as evidence. That's a string of coincidences involving the number 33.
"When the eclipse begins on August 21, the sunrise will be dark, just as Isaiah predicts," he said. "The Moon involved is called a black moon. These occur about every 33 months. In the Bible, the divine name of Elohim appears 33 times in Genesis.
"The eclipse will start in Lincoln Beach, Oregon – the 33rd state – and end on the 33rd degree of Charleston, South Carolina. Such a solar eclipse has not occurred since 1918, which is 99 years – or 33 times three."
