Fueled by rumors of impending threats from the cosmos, end-timers speculate that humanity will meet its demise in the near future, maybe in December 2012 or perhaps a tad earlier, during the 2012 Jewish holy days described in the Old Testament.
Comet Elenin, named after Russian astronomer Leonid Elenin, will be closest to Earth on October 16, 2012, during the biblical holy week of the Feast of Tabernacles. While NASA and scientists have been saying that the comet's approach will have a negligible effect, doom and gloomers have already credited it with Japan's earthquake and tsunami. Others such as Indiana end times preacher Paul Begley have seen this as a call to repentance, speculating whether Jesus will come to earth before the comet. Begley made the connection between the comet's closeness to earth and the Old Testament holy days, earning attention in World Net Daily.
