Expert explains Sir Isaac Newton's 'end of the world' prediction
The godfather of physics wrote, in his findings from 1704, the world is set to end on 2060 – exactly 1,260 years after the foundation of the Holy Roman Empire.
The famous scientist reached his apocalyptic conclusion by analysing the Bible’s Book of Daniel according to his note, but how he reached the conclusion exactly is still a mystery more than 300 years later.
His work on the matter, which was kept in a trunk in the house of the Earl of Portsmouth for 250 years, read: "It may end later, but I see no reason for its ending sooner.
“This I mention not to assert when the time of the end shall be, but to put a stop to the rash conjectures of fanciful men who are frequently predicting the time of the end, and by doing so bring the sacred prophesies into discredit as often as their predictions fail.”
