I understand your point. Many times 'predictions' are made very vague so that it is easy to make things fit. Also .... if you keep saying a giant
hurricane will hit Texas, then eventually one will ... and that wasn't a prediction, it was just playing the odds.
HOWEVER, there are MANY people who have made predictions that have come true ... predictions that were not vague and that didn't play the odds.
Being fairly new here I'm not sure what I can and can not post for links. However, I suggest that you google up some prediction stuff and check it
out. You will quickly see who is 'real' in the famous areas and who are not.
I have found that regular people, and not the Celebrity types, are more often accurate. For instance - Sylvia Brown said that neither Bush, nor Gore,
would win in 2000, she predicted that Democrat who had the bad heart would win. (Bradley? was that his name?)
However, my Grandmother would, on a few occasions, make a prediction and she was always dead on. She didn't 'play the odds' and she didn't 'make
'em vague' ... she only spoke her predictions when she was very sure of what she was saying ... not any of this ... 'I have a feeling for the
1,000th time' kind of thing. She was always right.
For example... she said that a single pilot airplane would crash on a certain river bank, in a certain town (she named them) and three days later that
happened. She would say that so-and-so was pregnant with a boy or girl (she'd say which) and she'd say when the baby would be born. Turned out to
be exactly right. The mom would find out three days later. My grandmother always predicted things three days ahead of time.
