here OP just want to keep tranc of events thru these days and try to nail if the prophecy was correct of not.
i call it "verification thread"
and s&f for you my friend
I think we are all just very sceptical when another thread appears suggesting that something will happen on a specific date.
It used to be that people were not comfortable or confident enough to put such specific dates on ideas, because they'd be ridiculed when they were
wrong. But these days, it seems people can claim anything will happen on a specific date, then nothing happens, and a week later they're back with
another prediction and people again believe without question.
Perfect example: Alex Jones!
The problem is the audience here, no one holds people to task for the hoaxes they perpetuate, people simply eat it all up.
I've said it before and I'll say it again. We need a thread graveyard, a place to dump all of these wild ideas once the "best before end" date has
passed, just so when the next one comes along people may be a little more sensible before they believe all the crazy. The evidence against is often
posted, and people ignore it (not saying that is the case in this thread). Having the thread graveyard will allow people to go back through and post
the evidence again, without having to go through 200 pages of the same argument.
I guess it's the Mods' fault for not locking repeat threads and showing people where it has already been discussed a thousand times.
Perfect example: FEMA death camps.
Still, in this case, a good thread to have to consolidate the several other threads about this date.
