In China, a certain Christian cult called, “Almighty God”, has been spreading rumors and doomsday prophecies. About 500 members have been arrested by the Chinese police as the country considers it a serious business. After the arrest, the police also located leaflets, DVDs, books, and other materials that talk about the said doomsday.
According to the Xinhua News service, the cult believes that the sun will not shine for three days that will begin on December 21.
The police is doing everything to suppress such beliefs and rumors, including psychic readings on the apocalypse as it has some negative psychological effect on people. Such effect was exhibited in the knife attack which killed 23 children in an elementary school in China. Min Yongjun, the attacker, was said to have been bothered and negatively affected by the rumors of the end of the world that he decided to end it himself.
