This Bear had trouble falling asleep last night (Friday before Super Bowl). Was listening to WCCO-AM, from Minneapolis, MN. The middle-of-the-night talkie had a guest who specialized in predictions.
This dude had predicted (according to HIM) the Trade Center attacks, the attack on the U.S. Marines in Lebanon, and some other stuff.
Now he is predicting that a terrorist group, comprised of fourteen (14) people, will strike again, most likely in New York City, most likely at the same time as the Super Bowl is taking place.
Seems to me that we can all predict all kinds of things. We can base those predictions on facts and information we have......examples:
It's a heavy hurricane season (due to climate conditions). New Orleans is always close to the normal path. Eventually a big storm will hit there. Duh.....
Terrorists have admitted that their targets are places or events that will get them the most "press" for their cause (whatever their cause) and infrastructure that will have long-term economic affects. Duh.....
Does anybody track the number of predictions that people like this WCCO-AM interviewee actually present? And their accuracy rating?
And if his horrible prediction is accurate......even closely accurate.....does that make him a "seer" or is he just somebody who understands that sxxx happens and there are usually a lot of signs that it is going down.
Any thoughts about these guys? What say you?
