The end is near, sort of.
At least according to San Antonio megachurch pastor John Hagee.
In his 2013 book Four Blood Moons: Something Is About To Change,
Hagee — who is described as a New York Times
best selling author on Amazon — says four blood moons making appearances in the sky between April 2014 and September 28, 2015, signify the end of an age, when God comes back to the planet.
In fact, he's so excited that he is hosting yet another special at his church on September 27.
However, according to pesky scientists, there are three kinds of lunar eclipses, penumbral, partial and total eclipses. These four "blood moons" Hagee keeps going on about are total eclipses, when the Moon turns red during the eclipse.
And according to those pesky scientists who work at NASA
, every once in a while there are four consecutive total eclipses, which is called a tetrad.
Hagee, however, interprets the significance of the event differently. According to Hagee, since the consecutive eclipses and two full moons he decided to include coincide with Jewish holidays, it's the end times.
Too bad they won't be able to see the September 28 eclipse in Israel
So how will they know the end has come?
