Let's ease up on all the "exact date" predictions, please.

No real source except the last 500 years worth of "predictions" that never happened.

I rarely post anymore on this site. It seems as if it has gone downhill quite a bit. We have all seen the ridiculous threads on here about tomorrows doomsday from lots of regulars.

Let us not forget that we are not really on any "timeline" that we can verify.
For someone to come here and say the world is going to end, or the gulf is gonna blow at 8:00 a.m. GMT on July 22, is not only ludicrous, it is idiotic.

Not bashing anyone in particular but you have to have a sense of reality about this whole thing.

If I come on here and say that the Gulf of Mexico is going to blow up, in some sort of biblical style catastrophe, I would be out of my mind to give some sort of date in regard to it. It MAY happen in an hour or it may be another 50 million years before it comes about. I have no doubt that it WILL come at some point and I find it pretty incredible that our species thinks that we are somehow "indestructible" on a worldy view.

We have plenty of proof of past "catastrophes" that happened to mankind and we think that "it will never happen to us". Bet that is what the people of Pompeii said as they were lying on the ground with their loved ones in their arms, only to succumb to a horribly painful, yet somewhat quick, death.

When folks come on here and tell me that TSIGTHTF...(figure it out yourselves)...on some certain date, I often wonder if they have taken into consideration all the variables they are up against.

We, as a species, have brainwashed ourselves into believing that today is.....July 12, 2010.

If I go back and look at:
The Julian Calendar
Leap Years
The Roman Calendar
Proleptic Calendar
Mayan Calendar, etc...etc...etc... you think there is a possibility that we may be "off" on our limited calibration and understanding of "time".

When my horoscope says to go buy a lottery ticket because I am in a "lucky" period, I usually wait a few days or a week, so I don't get caught up in the old mindset of "this is the exactness of the universe". It has been spot on numerous times.

Look back through history and look at all the "predictions" from Daniel in the bible, to Edgar Cayce....
Look at the number of predictions from "modern day prophets" we have here and you will see that there is a "buffer time" of events happening.

The words..."may,.... It's likely that,.... it could possibly be that, my opinion"......mean nothing.

What is, is. It's gonna do what it's gonna do and all the blogging, posting, complaining and predicting that is done is not going to change it.

If a tsunami happens and hits as far north as Knoxville, I certainly don't need a Glen Beck to tell me it's coming.

Scientific proof and facts are all that matter now. All I want to read is what is happening, in fact, at this moment.

This isn't going to change anything. It's a waste of your time IMO.

I want an exact date prediction for when these predictions are going to stop.

Good point OP.

MOD's, let's get rid of the predicitons and dreams topic. It just clutters up space that could be used for something practical.

great thread!
and no, do not do ways with dreams and predictions. if the members here can't take predictions with a grain of salt, maybe the deserve to freak out about something that is doubtfully going to happen.

like one thread i read " has ANY prediction on ats ever come true?"

I don't think we should do away with the forum group. I personally enjoy reading it. I think some of you just need to remember it's all talk. Don't take it seriously.

reply to post by theonlyrusty

ok, take a look at my prediction:

Now this one is very unusual for me as i got a destination for an event.... ok, no specifics on the exact date or what was going to happen exactly but i got that something was going to happen in a place where you just wouldn't think of automatically....
