End of the World Predictions: 1800 CE/AD to 1899 CE/AD

        This is the chronological list of End of the World predictions. Note that, in the list, if the predictor gave no particular details about how they thought the world would end, I simply listed the Nature of End as "End of the World". I hope that's pretty clear... and now, the list.

Predictions covering 1800 CE/AD through 1899 CE/AD

1801 AD: Biblical Judgement Day, predicted by Pierre Turrel

1806 AD: Second Coming, predicted by a Chicken Egg

1814 AD: Biblical Judgement Day, predicted by Pierre Turrel

1832 AD: Comet Collision, predicted by scientific guesswork

1836 AD: End of the World, predicted by Johaon Albrecht Bengel & Erklarte Offenbarung

1843 AD: Second Coming, predicted by William Miller
        In 1831, William Miller began to preach his belief that Jesus Christ would return to Earth in 1843. This was based on his own study of the prohecies of the books of David and Revelations in the holy Bible. With the help of a publiscist, his message gained nearly 100,000 followers as the year approached... and then complications set in. First, a false exact date of April 3, 1843, spread among his followers and led to some disappointment. Secondly, when the year 1843 was half over, Miller made a second announcement to the effect that the possible rage of days for the end now extended as far as March 21, 1844.

1843 AD, April 3: Second Coming, predicted by William Miller
        William Miller had predicted that Jesus Christ would return to Earth in 1843, but didn't specify a date. The date of April 3 was attributed to William Miller by the New York Herald in one of their articles, and soon became an accepted prediction among Miller's followers... even though Miller himself told them he hadn't predicted this date.

1843 AD, July 7: Biblical Judgement Day, predicted by William Miller
        William Miller predicted that Jesus Christ would return to Earth in 1843, but did not specify a date. Some sources I have claim he predicted a return for July 7, 1843, but this does not appear to be a true prediction by Miller. Instead, it may well be the date that Miller announced a modification to his prediction that extended the possibility of Christ's return into the year 1844.

1844 AD, March 21: Biblical Judgement Day, predicted by William Miller
        William Miller had predicted the return of Jesus Christ to Earth in the year 1843, but did not specify a date. When 1843 was half over, and nothing had yet happened, it was decided that teh year in which Christ could return wasn't based on a Christian calendar, but on a Jewish one... which, technically, meant the year Christ could return in didn't end on December 31, 1843, it would end instead on March 21, 1844. When this date came and went, William Miller formally appologized to his followers. He stated his continuing belief that the return of Christ was eminent, but also stated he would no longer make predictions as to when the date would be.

1844 AD, October 22: Second Coming, predicted by the Millerites
        William Miller had predicted the return of Jesus Christ to Earth in the year 1843; when his date range came and went with no return, Miller apologized and stopped making predictions. Despite their leader's reluctance to state a new date, a new date arose among his followers, commonly known as the "Millerites," of October 22, 1844. When this day came and went, the Millerites split into a number of new religious sects, each predicting their own new dates for the end of the world.

1866 AD: End of the World, predicted by Dr. John Cumming

1874 AD: End of the World, predicted by Charles Taze Russell
        This date appears to be reported in error by James Randi. This is in fact the date on which Charles Taze Russell made a prediction, not a date he predicted. It was on this day that Russell predicted that Jesus would return to Earth in the year 1914.

1881 AD: End of the World, many anonymous predictors 
        This was based on measurements made of the Pyramids of Giza, with the belief that they hold an encoded future history.

1881 AD: End of the World, predicted by Mother Shipton

1890 AD: New World Begins, predicted by The Ghost Dance Movement
