Calling itself H-World, the group says Dec. 21 marks the beginning of the “Great Darkness” and the coming of the “Divine Government.” It coincides with the much-talked-about date Mayans had supposedly prophesied would be the end of the world.
“It’s the day when darkness begins to reign, when the hearts of men lose hope,” said Berano Tamayo, 60, of the self-styled quasi-military and quasi-religious organization purportedly headed by Royette…Keep on reading: Doomsday group converge on hill in Surigao for end of the world
