Isaac Newton's Prediction: The 'End Of The World' Is Nearing

Isaac Newton forecasted that the 'end of the world' is on the horizon.

Newton was a renowned English mathematician, physicist, and astronomer, often hailed as one of the most pivotal scientists ever.

He's primarily celebrated for his laws of motion and understanding of gravity, which transformed our perception of nature.

Though Newton was often accurate, we might hope he missed the mark regarding his prophecies about our destiny.


Views on the world's end differ broadly among various cultures and faiths.

Some envision a massive calamity eliminating humanity, while others see a slow descent into decay.

Though no scientific proof backs either view, notable mathematician Newton once posited theories that might raise eyebrows today.

In 1704, Newton penned equations detailing his prophecy of the world's end.


To arrive at his forecast, Newton combined his mathematical reasoning with insights from the Book of Daniel, a foundational text in Christianity that offers a spiritual lens on early human history.


He subsequently listed seven reasons to justify his chosen year, as documented by History of Yesterday. Here they are:

1. The 2300 prophetic days didn't start prior to the emergence of the little horn of the He Goat.

2. These days did not begin post the decimation of Jerusalem and its Temple by the Romans in A.D. 70.

3. The time, times, & half a time didn't kick off prior to the year 800, marking the onset of the Pope's supremacy.


4. They didn't start after the era of Gregory the 7th in 1084.

5. The 1290 days didn't start before the year 842.

6. They didn't begin after the rule of Pope Greg. 7th in 1084.

7. The gap between the 1290 & 1335 days constitutes portions of the seven weeks.

Bewildered? You're not alone.

Luckily, we can break down his reasoning for better clarity.

In essence, Isaac Newton postulated that the world would meet its end in 2060, exactly 1,260 years after the establishment of the Holy Roman Empire.


While his forecast is deeply rooted in religious beliefs, it implies that Jesus will come back, restoring peace on Earth, but not without potential chaos first.

But don't get too concerned. History has seen us surpass numerous prophesied doomsdays, like the 2012 Mayan Calendar scare and Nostradamus' ominous 2023 forecast.

Besides, we've got a fair bit of time to brace ourselves. No need for alarm just yet.
