As of the time of publication, no one at Google can explain why their translation app is telling people the apocalypse is nigh.
If you type the word, “dog,” into Google Translate from Yoruba – a West African language – and ask it to translate to English, it will. However, if you type the same word 18 times in a row (or more), a spooky translation comes up.
The Daily Grail was the first to report this phenomenon, although it’s unknown exactly who was the first person to type “dog” 18 times in Yoruba to figure out the encryption. Originally, the translator was translating the spooky prediction in ‘Hawaiian’ as well.
The translation read in seemingly broken English, “Doomsday Clock is three minutes at twelve We are experiencing and a dramatic developments in the world, which indicate that we are increasingly approaching the end of times and Jesus’ return.”
World news media has reported panicking in certain circles, convinced that the translation error is a secret message from Google. There is no word, however, on whether or not Jim Bakker will use this as a sign to sell more survivor supplies.
