Don't believe anything till you see it. And even then be wary.
My sentiments exactly.
And that's what is starting to annoy me about ATS, People are so willing to jump on the bandwagon about something, without critically questioning the
event. And if anyone disagree's with them, they will jump down the persons throat, calling them anything from Government paid shills to plain old
I honestly feel sorry for my kids, because critical thinking is going the way of the Tasmanian Tiger............
What in the heck is a Tasmani- Ohhh...
I think one prediction did come true on ATS. But, I can't remember if it was a bona fide prediction or merely the recounting of a dream. But someone
had a dream that came true. I can't, in good consciousness, mention this person's name because ATS has strict regulations that prohibit even the
mention of a member who has been banned, unless that members name happens to be Bernard, then its ok because nobody really likes Bernard very much.
Well, its not really so much a majority thing, more like a loudest most persistent voices getting their way kind of thing. Nobody complains, so it is
allowed to continue.
However, this person is not named Bernard. His name doesn't even start with a B.
Being that this dream/prediction happened over 2 years ago, and its been probably at least 6 months since I have seen either hide or hair of this
person, I have no way of knowing if they are banned or not. I suppose there may be some member list type of feature on this site, but if there is, I
don't know of any other than the top flag standings or whatever they have but even if there was a way, I'm not going to sit there and check
everytime I mention a member to see if they might have gotten banned. It's easier just to not mention their name at all. Then there's no risk. 100%
safe posting. Even if you see someone posting in a thread, and it doesn't say banned under their avatar and stats, by the time you finish composing
your post, they could get banned. In that same thread or some other one. If you make a long post, the risk is exponentially greater. These are facts.
Ok, enough about that particular rule that gives one the urge to cry out, in all out Fight Club (or project meyhem?) fashion, "He had a name!! His
name, was Robert Paulson!!!"
Yes. Enough of that.
I remember the event that was dreamt about was the Japan Tsunami at Fukushima. And as I was explaining to those who might not be aware, the T&Cs
(always reminds me of T&C Surf Design video game for the NES with the skateboarding guy in the Tiki mask and surfing gorilla. A little trivial tidbit:
the T&C stands for Town and Country) regarding the mention of the "deceased", and the subsequent "Bernard loophole by mob rule" it struck me that,
the recounting of a dream that included a disaster and a location named, would almost certainly, on
ATS at least, imply some sort of "prediction", whether the person said "this might happen", "i hope this doesn't happen/never happens", or
"this will happen", a potential future event is implied. Therefore, a prediction of sorts has been made. So, while I cannot in good faith give you
the members name, I can tell you with confidence that a prediction has indeed came true on ATS.
AND, even though I personally refuse to mention names, I have given enough info for you to all look it up and check for yourselves if I'm right or
wrong in the event that you do not believe me, or if you are just curious and would like to check it out. There were even a few threads made ABOUT the
thread that made the prediction, too bad I think some threads contained the name of the member, which means that, if this person ever gets banned,
those threads could end up being 404d.
I don't know if any other predictions have came true here, but I wouldn't be surprised if there was, or will be.
