There won't be a nuke in NY today because predictions just don't work like that. I believe that the future is dependent on the free will of 6.7
billion individual humans on this planet. Because of this wide range of possibilities, one cannot accurately predict a single event in detail. Add
to that the fact that any event is seen from many different perspectives, so whose perspective would a prophet see the event from? Does that change
On that note, I do believe that one can predict trends and turning points. These can be predicted, but then you have to take into consideration all
that is involved with predicting turning points. You see, when you predict a turning point, it is often impossible to validate that prediction at the
time because a turning point is usually only witnessed quite some time after the turning point has been passed.
For instance, say I were some guy that considered myself a prophet in 1932. I say "Watch out, because on Feb 27th 1933 there will be an event which
will have dire consequences on all of mankind on Earth!"
Well, on Feb 28th people all over the world would be saying "WTH? Nothing happened..."
Meanwhile in Germany the Reichstag building, seat of the German government, burnt down which enabled Adolf Hitler to seize power under the pretext of
protecting the nation from threats to its security.
So, what is with Feb 9, 2009? Well, there is a chance that something will happen today which we will see in the future as being significant. There
is also a greater likelihood of nothing happening.
In the end, no nuke for NY. If I am wrong, I will give each of you a thousand dollars. (Well, I live and work in NYC so if it happens I'd have more
to worry about than to give you money.)
