Meh... I don't take much stock in prophecies. For the most part they turn out to be false or if accurate could be predicted simply by connecting the
dots of past and current political and religious ideologies and historical conflict. The prophecies outlined in the link you provided may or may not
come to fruition but honestly, I think anyone could predict those things as a matter of simple deduction rather than divine inspiration. It's fairly
easy to assume that human lifespans will lengthen, conflict will continue in the Persian Gulf, human consciousness will evolve (just vague enough to
be applied to any progressive thought... like equal rights for all, allowing women to vote, etc...). As for the others like the perpetual motion
machine, the hall of records discovery, the evolution of the "root race", China becoming the cradle of Christianity, and the second coming of
Christ.... I'll remain skeptical.
While I think that Cayce was a tallented "spiritual" healer, I still think it's healthy to be skeptical when considering anyone who claims to be
able to see the future. If you take into consideration what we think we know about space/time, and even if you subscribe to the theory that space/time
is static, (meaning that the past, present and future all exist in the same construct) there is the problem of alternate timelines and parallel
universes to contend with as well.
...and then there are questions about the things he didn't predict. The most obvious ommisions would be predictions about America's involvement in
WWII, the development of nuclear weapons, the deveopment of the WWW, etc...
There's no doubt that he was an interesting character but I'm just not buying what he was selling.
