A “New” Date for the Apocalypse

Updated: Jun 14, 2023

Many times in the last 20 years there has been a rumour that “the world will end soon” and in fact many predicted how.

Initially, many people said that the end of the world would come on the new year when we would change the millennium, that is, January 1, 2000.

Specifically, the “prophecies” claimed that computers would not understand the year “00” and would interpret it as 1900 instead of 2000. This would cause the technological world to collapse.

Of course, if we live in 2022, obviously nothing like that happened. Then the ominous predictions were for 2012, but the world continues to exist.

It is worth noting that some people claimed that the 2012 prediction was wrong and that the real end of the world would come in 2021. To be fair in 2020-2021 maybe some people believed it with the corona virus pandemic.

Now, a “prediction-study” that was made several decades ago, has come “to light” and gives a date that is not far from today.

What is this date supposed to be? Friday, November 13, 2026, that is, in four years.

The 1960 study on the end of the world and population growth This prediction came from a scientist, Heinz von Foerster, from Vienna who spent much of his career working at the University of Illinois. In 1960, this physicist, philosopher and researcher had argued in a study that the world would end due to overpopulation in 2026, using a mathematical formula to calculate the date.

In the study, Foerster also says of November 2026: “on that date the human population will approach infinity if it grows as it has for the past two millennia.” The UN population forecast in the coming years However, it is worth noting that there is no cause for concern as the population may be increasing, but it is not going to reach infinity, with the UN predicting that: “The world population is expected to reach 8.5 billion in 2030 and increase further to 9.7 billion in 2050 and 11.2 billion by 2100.”
