I mean it seems like such a big event. How did they miss it? I haven’t even heard anyone trying to twist a Nostradamus quatrain into an after-the-fact prediction. They really let us down.
There are enough of them that someone’s bound to have come close enough to convince those who want to believe.
Nostradamus Century 2, Quatrain 6:
“Near the gates and within two cities
“There will be two scourges the like of which was never seen,
“Famine within plague, people put out by steel,
“Crying to the great immortal God for relief.”
So, basically, no.
People have been predicting plagues since forever. They undoubtedly started changing their vocabulary decades ago. I’ve seen several dredged up references to people talking about coming pandemics, some of them forecasts, others just general talk. None of them were specific to this particular pandemic, but what does that matter?
No psychic predicted the fall of the Berlin Wall and the breakup of the Soviet Union, perhaps the most important event of the end of the 20th century, a series of events that affected millions of people. As evidence (if any was needed) that psychics are frauds.
I saw that one coming.
I have never understood this “all or nothing” mentality. Your post makes just as much sense as saying, “Because car mechanics sometimes make mistakes, all mechanics are frauds.”
If car mechanics were as reliable as psychics, we’d all be riding horses.
Me too, but I did not indicate a date. I only said that when the wall started crumbling, it would be very fast.
Living in Berlin, it was pretty clear the wall could not last forever.
The pandemic was not predicted by any psychic AFAIK, only sane people warned, pleople like Fauci, Bill Gates and so. And some psycho too, but they don’t count.
It’s not “this particular psychic failed to predict this one specific minor event”. It’s “every psychic in the entire world all failed to predict this extremely major event”.
You know, if every car mechanic ever failed to fix a single part on a single car, eventually most sane people would begin to wonder why they were called car mechanics.
It is hard, but not impossible to find car mechanics that are not frauds. For your statement to make sense it would have to possible to find a real psychic.
Don’t know if it helps, but I think my car mechanic is psychic.
One prophet, Chuck Pierce, began prophesying in late 2019 that “massive plague-like conditions” would come through April 2020. But since he said it would end in April 2020, he was wrong about that portion of it.
A term so vague as to be useless, in my opinion.
Nobody can really predict anything anymore with any degree of certainty. Look at how many political experts predicted 2016 was going to be a landslide electoral victory for Hilliary Clinton.
Predicting things that come true isn’t really a big deal. You just predict lots and lots of things, some contradictory, and ignore the ones that don’t come true.
You just have to be vague enough with your predictions to be able to shoehorn them into eventual reality. Or vice versa.
Take right wing crank and supplement pusher Mike Adams of Natural News (a bizarrely popular website for dimwitted paranoids and alt med enthusiasts). Looking at his 3/14/20 predictions regarding Covid-19, you’re struck by how grotesquely overblown and stupid they were. He can probably crow about this final one though:
10. The United States of America as we know it today will not survive the next two years . Something will change the landscape in a dramatic way, either a geopolitical breakup of the nation, the suspension of elections followed by civil war, a foreign invasion of the USA during our summer of chaos, or other similar events that will end the nation as we know it."
Assuming we avoid civil war and/or a Chinese invasion, lots of things can be said to “end the nation as we know it” - for instance, Biden’s vaccine mandate is unprecedented.
Just ignore all his ludicrously false predictions, and stock up on the prepper supplies he’s selling.
