This future predicting nonsense is like religion, you claim to have knowledge or a connection to some super being and soon or tomorrow something will happen i.e. the end of the world, heaven, miracles or whatever and the beauty of it is the people daft enough to believe it will swallow all the lies as you are the truth giver.
Be afraid of simple people in large numbers.
"What good's a god who gives you everything you want? ... It's the HOPE that's important. Give people jam today, and they'll just sit and eat it.
Jam tomorrow, now -- that'll keep them going for ever."
- Terry Pratchett
