I'm not sure how you can equate this to being a prophet. The argument is not that prophecy or prophets don't exist. The argument is that people in
the store began to believe she was right because of mutual fear, experiences, and her words. More and more people chose to believe what she was saying
as they did not have much else to grasp to at the moment.
Prophecy is a whole different bag of tricks. Honestly Delphi was more then likely suffering from hallucinations due to high levels of sulfur in her
body. Nostradamus well that is a unique one as is. I haven't done all that much research into Nostradamus but from what I have read his predictions
are very vague. Not to mention I am fairly certain he has ended the world on more then one occasion. I mean honestly how many times can the world end.
There are numerous prophets and prophecy and all them have hit the mark numerous times.
When you hit on vagueness there are 2 very good examples of this
The Book of Revelations
The prophecies in the book of revelations have happened more time then one can count yet everytime someone will say they have occurred in the proper
order or that the signs have happened.
The Rivers turn to blood, well this one hasn't really happened, but India has a almost annual event where the river turns blood red due to a algae in
The Moon turns red. Well the moon turns red at each and every lunar eclipse. Just like the Sun turns black and each and every solar eclipse. No big
shocker or end of times phenomenon there.
The Earth will shake. Well honestly the earth shakes a lot and quite frequently. If I am not mistaken it happens multiple times on a daily basis.
I am not 100% sure these are accurate as there are many translations and most on the internet have quite frankly become tainted by people's
The Seas will turn black and many animals will die - Ok well this one is interesting as I don't believe there was much off-shore drilling or oil
around at the time, but this has happened on more then one occasion. The Valdez incident and quite a few others around the world aside from the Deep
I am not as familiar with them as the Revelations so I will leave it with that.
I suppose the point I am getting at is we are not necessarily focusing on prophecy though most of them are not all that accurate and are probably as
accurate as the Gregorian Calendar and or the King James version of the bible.
