Does Disney’s ‘Hercules’ Predict the End of the World?

Do not adjust your browsers – apparently, there’s a real concern out there that September 2015 will bring with it the end of the world. How? Well, we have a few major things to worry about, if – if – we’re willing to believe what’s out there.

And believe you me, folks, that’s a big if. I’ll let you decide for yourself, as usual. Let’s just, uh, take this journey one step at a time.


Oh, right. I mentioned Hercules. It’s what really pulled me into this new doomsday prediction, so let’s open that door first.

There’s a video on YouTube (which is quite the trip, if you ask me) that proposes that an early scene in Disney’s 1997 animated film Hercules predicts the year in which the apocalypse will occur.

The scene involves the Three Fates using their one eye to prophesize the future of our hero, Hercules. In eighteen years, they reveal, the planets will align, the Titans will roam once more, and Hades will (for a short time only!) conquer the world.

Here’s where it gets weird: If we take the curious leap of viewing this film literally, as the video suggests – that what we’re actually seeing is a message about the end of days, Satan, and the giant Nephilim – 18 years from 1997 is 2015. The video posits that the media is subliminally alluding to a catastrophic event that will occur in late September, specifically 9/22, 9/23, and 9/24.

But what exactly is supposed to happen later this year, anyway? What’s so special about September?

The Blood Moon Prophecy

It all really started with a prophecy. You see, we’re currently experiencing what’s called a lunar eclipse tetrad – four consecutive total lunar eclipses occurring on the dates mentioned above. During a total lunar eclipse, the moon commonly appears red. They are, therefore, known as Blood Moons.

This is completely normal, and it’s happened before. As NASA eclipse expert Fred Espenak said last year, “During the 21st century, there are 8 sets of tetrads, so I would describe tetrads as a frequent occurrence in the current pattern of lunar eclipses.”

“The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come” – Acts 2:20

However, what’s drawn the attention of end times soothsayers is that the eclipses of this current tetrad coincide with Jewish Feasts. They believe this is a sign that Biblical prophecies contained in Acts 2:20 and Revelation 6:12 will soon come to pass, heralding the end of days. After all, they say, every time a Blood Moon has occurred during a Jewish feast, world-changing events have transpired.

“And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood” – Revelation 6:12

What, if anything, could possibly happen alongside the final Blood Moon on September 28, 2015? Hard to say, but some people have an idea…

NASA Refutes Doomsday Asteroid Claims

NASA is no stranger to doomsday fears. In 2012, the Jet Propulsion Laboratory did their best to calm fears surrounding the Mayan Prophecies. SETI did the same. NOAA once tried to convince us that mermaids aren’t real, as well, but I refuse to believe them. In short, when it comes to incredible claims, sometimes the experts can’t help but step forward and say, “Now wait a minute.”

According to The Daily Mail, a NASA spokesperson attempted to clear the air regarding any possible asteroids, stating, “Nasa knows of no asteroid or comet currently on a collision course with Earth, so the probability of a major collision is quite small.” The spokesperson also stated that they know of no large objects that are likely to hit Earth for the “next several hundred years.”

The major rumor here, however, is that a massive asteroid is set to collide with Earth sometime between September 22 and September 28, 2015. I’m sure NASA’s Hypothetical Asteroid Impact Scenario back in April did a lot to assuage these fears.

Return of the Nephilim

“Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.” – Revelation 12:12

Of course, there’s always the lingering worry that CERN will blow up the planet. Or, perhaps, that their mad scientists will open an interdimensional portal allowing the Annunaki/Nephilim — Titans, if you will — to return to Earth. But we’ve already talked about that.

In other words, if you want to believe, there’s a variety of weird stuff on the table for 2015, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. So mark your calendars. Just remember: as you prep for doomsday, don’t forget to pick up some canned peas.

Update: Nothing happened.
