A random post on Facebook might have served as the catalyst for generating numerous news articles seeking to debunk the claim that Friday evening's black moon is a sign of the Apocalypse.
On Friday night in the Western hemisphere, a phenomenon known as a black moon is expected to appear for the first time since March 2014.

Iranian-American Pastor Saeed Abedini has announced that he's starting a new ministry looking to bring Muslim people to Jesus Christ, adding that he was told to do this directly by Christ 16 years ago.
"As you all know I was in prison for more than 3/5 years because Jesus met me 16 years ago and told me: 'I am coming back soon Go to preach my Gospel' and until today I didn't disobey Him and I will never disobey Him," Abedini wrote in a Facebook post on Tuesday.
The pastor spent three and a half years in an Iranian prison for his Christian faith, and became the subject of major campaigns by persecution watchdog groups who called for his release.

Ayesha Curry has been piling her proverbial plate with the business of building her own food empire from scratch. But more than focusing on cementing a name for herself in the food industry, the cookbook author and future Food Network host is planning to use her platform to serve as a witness for Jesus Christ.
The 27-year-old wife of Golden State Warriors superstar point guard Stephen Curry isn't posting scriptures every day on social media or inviting everyone along on her book tour or to church. However, she is intentional about serving as a witness for her Christian faith, which is something that both she and her two-time consecutive NBA MVP award-winning husband have made a priority.
"When Steph decided to play basketball, I had the same conversation with him that he had with me. 'Whatever you do, do it well, but do it for God,'" Curry said in an interview with The Christian Post. "I think that's what has kept us grounded. When I started my blog called 'Little Lights of Mine,' my whole goal was to do the things I wanted to do, but all while being a light for Him." more >>
