I'm sorry if I missed someone mentioning this already but do the webbots have anything to do with Terence McKenna's "Timewave Zero" in the construction of their predictions? Because I was nerding out on the old DOS program that lets you map the wave this morning - and right on the money, October 7th, 2008 until December 12th, 2008 there is a massive dip into novelty. For two months straight it's just a line going down, down, down. Then on December 12th there is a slight resurgence of "habit" and the novelty dip starts up again around December 23rd and doesn't really wane until February 2009. Sound familiar?
Disclaimer: I'm not saying I believe any of this but I do find it interesting. I'm sort of looking at October 7th as a real test of whether it's capable of predicting anything.
shortened quote for readability
So we look forward to the balance of this weekend and as late as Thursday/Friday of next week with a heightened state of awareness/concern/trepidation (or 'fear lite') because of predictive elements that go to the idea of:
* A major event which could dramatically impact 2, 2.2, or 22-million Americans.
* This 'impact' could be the range of something fairly minor like "My bank card doesn't
work anymore" to a 'blinding flash from a terror attack' on US soil.
* This latter is somewhat supported by references early in the data to 'attack on US
interests" and the fact that al Qaida has a nasty habit of trying to influence outcomes of
elections, such as was the case with the Spanish train bombings a few years back.
* The 'events' of next week will linguistically be characterized by about a 20% natural
disaster/earth related component, a 40'ish percent impact that will be 'military' in nature
and a 40% (or higher) impact that will be 'economic' in scope.
3 October 2008: We received quite a bit of response recently as we have shared some of the chatter on the al Qaeda Arabic Internet forums. It’s been difficult because many of the typical venues of communication have been shut down by the people that operate these forums and chat rooms.
A recent communiqué and has bugged me since the beginning. It was the report where the person mentioned the first Tuesday after Ramadan as a possible date for terrorist attacks in the United States and abroad, against US interests [Report HERE]. What was significant about that Tuesday? After doing some research the significance wasn’t the day, it is the date. Tuesday October 7, 2008 isn’t significant as to 2008 but October 7 is significant as it is the date back in 2001 when the US and UK attacked Afghanistan.
I will state this quite openly. Over the years there has been many dates speculated as a possible date for al Qaeda to unleash attacks in the North American continent and abroad. I wouldn’t put any more thought into Tuesday after Ramadan than I would any number of dates. I only mention this date because of the communiqué and the fact that it was a significant event date in the War On Terror.

Isn't it weird that all these dates the Web Bot has predicted all seem to tie in with one another in the scheme of history.

Were the hell has he been to actually know what burning flesh smells like, sounds like he is trying to sell it a little to hard.
But it's just my opinion
