    The advent of something means that it's finally here. You might be waiting for the advent of a new iPhone or for the advent of cloning.

    Generally, the noun advent is used for the introduction of something important. The twentieth century saw the advent of many important inventions — including television, computers, and microwave dinners. If the word is capitalized, it has a religious meaning, referring to the period, observed in certain Christian religions, that begins on the fourth Sunday before Christmas (December 25).

    It probably means what a dictionary says it means. It has more meanings than just the religious one that @DeathDealer told you. Why are you so stupid that you can't just look it up in a dictionary?
