New Delhi: The Mayan prophecy about 21 December being the Doomsday failed to leave the desired effect. But that has not deterred many from predicting the end of the world. People have found another set of prophecy that they believe will lead to the end of the world by the end of this year.
Two prophecies- one made by St Malachy and the other one made by non-other than Nostradamus has not let the dust to settle down around the Doomsday euphoria.
According to the prediction the world will end with the resignation of Pope Benedict XVI and when comet ISON will pass through the earth.
The successor of Pope Benedict XVI is going to be the last Pontiff according to the prophecies. According to Popular belief: The next pope will be the last one because "Judgment Day" will take place while the soon-to-be-named papal successor is seated.
The prophecy is made by St Malachy a 12th century Irish Archbishop. He was known for some reported miraculous powers, such as healing and declaring prophecies.
He is also said to have had a vision of all the future Popes-- from Pope Celestine II (1143 AD) up to the reigning pope, Benedict XVI.
According to predictions, the successor of Pope Benedict XVI will be the last Pope to sit in Vatican before Doomsday.
A second prediction further strengthens the prediction. The prediction is made by Nostradamus, a 16th century astrologer. Nostradamus predicted the pope to replace Benedict XVI will "flee Rome" in the month of December, at a time when the sky has two suns.
Comet ISON, is expected to pass by the earth in December 2013. The comet will be visible from all corners of the earth even during the day time, appearing like a second sun.
