riddle me this.

why do people think others can predict the future?

posted on Oct, 27 2009 @ 08:33 AM
Over a long enough timescale, anything that can happen probably will.

Second line

when the stock market crashed i filled my entire basement with food and water to last atleast 3 months. even though i know that 99.9% of the predictions are BS atleast i have a fall back for when the shtf.

I really want to believe that someone or something out there can predict what's going to happen, but in every case during my lifetime, I haven't seen evidence of it.

This latest Octo-scare was the last time I'm going to focus on those "predictomatic" programs.

Now...what am I going to do with 14 cases of canned salmon?

Alex Jones comes off in that video like some sort of infomercial twit.

I keep expecting him to bust out the OxyClean.

hi all.

yes it is now october 27th, the sky has not fallen.

then I have read that some people "threw the kitchen sink " into october 25th!
these people foresaw about 20 nasties all happening at once, volcanoes, earthquakes, comets, economic doom!

but I have found *Real* predictions, predictions that scare me!
my mother. ten years before she died, she had a vision that was like, "ten years from now a red sports car will come over into your lane at dusk and you will die"!!
lo and behold ten years later that red sports car came over the hill into her lane at 120 mph! Rip.
but she spent those ten years posting upon a cupboard door, the newspaper clippings for like, "the 20 top psychics predictions for 1972"; then for the next year, every time that i visited her, she delighted in putting down these stupid wrong psychics! little did i know that she was trying to put down her OWN vision! to no avail, this one must have been from a Real Source!!

as that person says in his signature, "at ATS the world ends every week"!

so why the october 25th thing?

I have my own theory. Just me and i cannot "prove" it.

Anniversary date! another october 25th from long ago.
A small news article, perhaps, un-noticed by most.

A small terrible fire, the smoke column was 500 foot tall, pitch black smoke.
I saw that. it was my college that burned to the ground! October 25th, 1963.
23 years after I was Conceived.
1940. 1963 the fire. in 1965, "surprise"; I was sent to Japan, in the military, us air force. on about october 25th to boot!! my dreams from then on equates "going to japan" to "dying and going to heaven", as a symbol!
23 years. I have read of how "occult" this number is supposed to be! I can see why.
[my theory is that when I was given my Life mission, before I was born, I was shown the end of civilization, thus my life has WITHIN IT a code, a code of the "end" that everyone is afraid of!!]

23 years from 1963, is 1986. on about october 25th, 1986, *again*, I was told by my aunt that "father wanted to see me now", he was in intensive care and he turned 72 the month before and my mother was ALSO Told that "but your husband will live until he is 72". [when she was shown that that red sports car would come into her lane]
The death of my mother shocked him so much that he went a bit insane, and blamed everything on me! but now he forgives me and wanted to speak to me. I dropped everything and spent a year with my aunt, seeing him often in the Home, and we had a wonderful reunion; he died one year later at 73, in 1987. Then around october 25th, i came back to tallahassee and worked at a senior center for one year, i left around october of 1988. a year after that year, 5000+ birds were killed in the senior center furnace chimney!
and a year or so after that, maybe 1991 or 1992, the senior center wooden sign, in front of the building, burned to the ground, overnight!
[senior center = one more year or three to develop your talents, grow your souls, before the end times come!! senior center = the world and us in it.
leaving in october 1988 = I die.
1989 to 1992 = civilization comes apart, section by section, piece by piece.]

I see the Pattern.
I die in 2011, in October. then within one to three years later, the Real End Times, of our civilization occurs. Not all at once, happens here and there until the "1000 cuts" of ??? earthquakes, volcanoes, etc.etc, puts us all into the dark ages again. Life will go on, for most, until 2012 to 2013.

this post has grown into something that I did not intend, at the beginning!! Somehow, I feel that my own life was set up with these events in mind, thus the cycles of the "23" reflect into my own life, over and over again and around october 25th as well. And...reflect what *might* happen within a few years, to us all.

"there" indeed, Seems like I have now given a PREDICTION of my own!!
probably few here, on ATS, will read this, but I have to live with what I see.

The problem is that the doom and gloom PROPHECIES may not come true - they are based on wild fantasy, not on evidence. However, PREDICTIONS based on analysis are a different story.

If a certain date is predicted in a dream, vision, ancient text or by the voice of god - you can be fairly assured that it is baseless, and any event occurring on that day is purely coincidence.

There is, however, a branch of scientific thought that deals with extrapolation, cyclical trends and reviews of history.

I endorse everyone to throw out baseless prophecy - but this does not mean predictions based on evidence and scientific rationalization are baseless.

There is a great deal of evidence regarding swine flu vaccinations, false flag events and economic disaster for the western world. These are not fantasy - they are based on evidence and extrapolation.

Don't throw the baby out with the bath water - prediction and prophecy are two different things. The first is based on scientific modeling, the second on hallucination and arm waving.

I find the best approach for me is to see them as horror stories with a possible basis in reality, as the usual horror stories I read don't really hit me the same way they used to, and I get off on the horror buzz, as it enables me to explore the dark side, with relative impunity.
That's not to say it doesn't do my head in from time to time though.
Too much of a bad thing perhaps.
They make good subjects for my art and music too, and inspire me to draw and paint pictures, and write tunes that I probably wouldn't otherwise have written.
Then again, in the bible somewhere, I think it says something about there being false prophets near to the end times, which seems to be happening a lot now, and probably has since that particular prophecy was made.
I suppose some people have to make a living somehow.
False prophets=real profits?
The bottom line for me is, I don't know Jack, and as long as I can remember that, I'll probably be immune.

Yeah we can think that to the PC software predictors like Web-Bot or people listened and heard my call for mass prayer. Prayer is a powerful thing. Prepare for next summer though because its going to be ugly.

with all doom & gloom predictions, prophecies. DONE. 10/25-26 was the last straw!
I've always had a problem with getting my hopes up too much for stuff (as morbid as this might sound given the context), and I just can't take it anymore. I love this site but it's time I focused on my other fascination, ancient & lost civilizations...

So, take care all doom & gloomers, I'm sure you will be right someday, I'm done!


gloom and doom is nonsense
and unhealthy
as well as totally non-productive!
nothing more than a weapon with which mankind constantly threatens suicide!

"perfect love casts out fear"
love's opposite is fear

so i'm glad you are choosing love
(at least i hope you are!)
