A computer model developed by a team of researchers at MIT in 1973 and re-surfaced in Australian media has predicted the date of the apocalypse. The apocalyptic computer model processed by one of the world's largest computers in those days reveals that the world will end in 2040. As per the computer model, a trigger in this direction or a major change will occur in 2020, just two years from now.

The computer model reveals that the drastic rise in population and pollution are the two major factors which play a crucial role in ending the civilization forever. The world, going by this model, cannot sustain the current rise in population and industrial growth which will finally result in a collapse in 2040. The computer model also predicts that the availability of natural resources will deplete drastically in the first half of the 21st century.

The report from 1973 was republished by Australian media house ABC recently, as a major event mentioned by the computer model is just two years away. In 2020, the quality of life on earth will diminish rapidly, and the condition of the planet will turn very critical.

"At around 2020, the condition of the planet becomes highly critical. If we do nothing about it, the quality of life goes down to zero. Pollution becomes so serious, it will start to kill people, which in turn will cause the population to diminish, lower than it was in 1900. At this stage, around 2040 to 2050, civilised life as we know it on this planet will cease to exist," read the report, reports.

In the meantime, a section of conspiracy theorists argues that the end of the world will be triggered by the arrival of Nibiru. According to these theorists, killer planet, Nibiru is now in its collision course towards earth, and one day, it will hit us causing massive destruction everywhere.

Nibiru believers strongly believe that the recent natural disasters including the Indonesian earthquake are an indication that Nibiru is approaching earth.
