With the 4th "Blood Moon" approaching on September 27th, some people believe the end of the world is coming.

This Sunday evening, September 27, 2015, a very rare "Super Blood Moon" will be visible in the sky. We haven't seen one in over 30 years and if you aren't sure what it is, this video will help tremendously.

Some believe this could be the coming of the end of the ages. There have been many times we have thought the world was going to end. People sold their homes, quit their jobs and stopped living life thinking the world was going to end. While I applaud their courage and willingness to grab life by the horns, I still think it is a bit foolish.

PopularMechanics points out that the upcoming "Blood Moon" is believed to be a sign of the end of times. Oh bother, here we go again... the world is going to end! Here are 6 times we thought it was the end of days:

1. Blood Moon Prophecy:

John Hagee and Mark Biltz are both Christian ministers who believe that the "Blood Moon" is a sign of the end of times. Revelations 6:12 states: "And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake: and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood." With this particular lunar eclipse, it is a tetrad, which is a set of four total lunar eclipses within two years, which makes it very significant.

2. The Mayan Calendar ends:

Even my husband was freaking out about this one. The Mayan calendar ended a 5,126-year-long cycle on December 21, 2012. Some believed we would have cosmic collisions with unknown planets and stars. None of that happened. But I do remember saying jokingly that I wanted to open my Christmas presents early just in case. Captain Jack even went to a Steel Panther show that was "The End of The World Party!"

3. Harold Camping Predicts the Apocalypse:

Harold Camping, president of Family Radio, predicted the return of Christ on September 6, 1994. He predicted this in a book called 1994? That obviously didn't happen.

4. Harold Camping Predicts the Apocalypse Again:

Well his 1994 prediction didn't work out, so he started spreading word that the Rapture would happen on May 21, 2011. The end of the world would be October 21, 2011. That didn't happen either.

5. Y2K

Probably the most infamous of all of the times we thought the world was going to end. All of us sat in front of the television watching the clock tick down to midnight. We were afraid our computers would go crazy and take over the world. Reason being is early programmers entered year data as two digits, and when the clock struck 12, would our computers reset the world to 1900  and chaos would ensue? Nope, the world didn't end. There were a few minor problems, but nothing serious.

6. Dorothy Martin's prediction:

Dorothy Martin scared everyone in the early 1950s claiming she had a vision. She said a flood would destroy the world on December 21, 1954, and to be saved... true believers could gather with her and be rescued by a flying saucer sent at midnight. Believe it or not, people showed up to her Chicago backyard and nothing happened. When Prophecy Fails, is a great book about this event.

So will the world end Sunday night because of the rare "Blood Moon?" Probably not, but who am I to know all of the answers?
