Newton's New Law - World will end in 2060!

Everyone should know who is Sir Isaac Newton!!
Apple falling from the tree.... Gravitation....
If you still don't know, you better go back to Primary school!

British scientist Sir Isaac Newton predicted the world would end in 2060 in a 1704 letter. The letter, on show at Jerusalem's Hebrew University as part of an exhibition entitled "Newton's Secrets", is part of an array of papers of the British scientist bequeathed to the institution by a wealthy collector of scientific manuscripts. This is the first time that letter puts on public show since 1969.

Working from verses in the Book of Daniel, Newton argued that the world would end 1,260 years after the foundation of the Holy Roman Empire in western Europe in 800 AD. So, the world would end in 2060.

Do you believe that??

Well... Newton was interested in superstitions. He did spend four years in the 1670s preparing a work on alchemy, the notion that base metals can be turned into gold.

Many people have predicted the year that the world would end. I found a site that talks about end-of-the-world prophecies. If all those prophecies are true, we would've died hundreds of times already.
