I often see the future. For example, I saw that on November 20th, 2007 God shook Japan severely, (perhaps a magnitude of 8.3) and followed it immediately with a crushing blow on New York City. This is more than a prediction. This is a warning! Keep your loved ones and yourself safe on that fateful day. Natural Disasters will continue to rise in number and magnitude. When you see these things happen, you may wish to be forwarned of other natural disasters. If so, send a SASE to Daniel, 1241 W. 27th Ave #436, Anchorage, AK 99503-2318

Perhaps? How does one see a perhaps? Perhaps indicates that you are guessing. So are you?

followed it immediately with a crushing blow on New York City


What is a crushing blow? Is this another natural disaster? "Crushing blow" typically means "brought to it's knees", i.e. that NYC would need assistance from outside areas. Is this how you meant it?

Why continue? Because we must. Because we have the call. Because it is nobler to fight for rationality without winning than to give up in the face of continued defeats. Because whatever true progress humanity makes is through the rationality of the occasional individual and because any one individual we may win for the cause may do more for humanity than a hundred thousand who hug their superstitions to their breast.

I eagerly await November 20th. I will be glued to CNN.

As a public service, I have reported your address to the proper authorities for "re-education". Thank you for your cooperation.

This wouldn't have something to do with Mexican Revolution Day? Are the Mexicans behind this? Is this the long awaited official invasion of North America by the Meso-Americans?

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I seem to recall that NYC is built upon solid granite with no apprecable faults. It'd take an earthquake of near unimaginable intensity to 'bring it down.'

Actually, when you factor in past events such as the KT & Permian extinctions, we ain't seen shit for natural disasters. And then there was the Krakatoa eruption. It was such a doozy that it triggered the Lttle Ice Age and Europe all but starved.

Really, earthquakes are only local events, whatever their seriousness.

Me, I'm waiting for the Yellowstone Cauldera to burst forth with a good, healthy fart. When that overdue event happens, we can then state, briefly, that we've seen a real disaster, not the mere destruction of a city.

Sorry, Dan'l, but I do not trust prophetcies nor believe in prophets beyond the "I had a feelin' that'd happen!" sort that we all get now & again, and observe with the clarity of hindsight.

Pay attention to the misses as well. You may find that you are not such a good prophet.

I predict that on November 21st that we will find that neither of these occurred the day before.

That's some revelation

Well, guys-- let's be fair. Ricky, we don't know how this guy "saw" his vision. For instance, suppose I had a vision of a giant fire engulfing a city. And suppose I came here and wrote "giant flames-- maybe 2o or 30 feet high-- will burn San Antonio to the ground." I could actually have seen that vision. But because I didn't have a meter stick or other frame of reference, I'm guessing at how high the flames were in my vision.

And Filthy, it sounds like the Japan shaking is different from the crushing blow New York will suffer. Perhaps an asteroid will come crashing down on Manhattan on the same day as the earthquake strikes Japan?

And less than two weeks till we find out if DtP is for real!

Asteriod strike! I like it; now we're thinkin' big enough!

O'course, if such an event happened simultaneously in NYC, the Japanese Seismic Boogie would quickly become moot.

If this happens, Daniel, I'm going to stop being such an atheist, and really start hating God.

And welcome to SFN, Daniel.

Well I for one am not going to discount Daniel unless the predicition does not pan out. I am impressed that he actually gave an event and a time in the future. I usually I hear what a great job they did in the past.

I live about 5 hours from New York city I wonder if I will be able to see the 'crushing blow', whatever it is from my house.


If I knew then what I know now then I would know more now than I know.

If I had to choose between an asteroid and Jersey City... I'd go with the asteroid.

Well, there is that. I was only there once, briefly, in a rented car, after attending a tech class near Princeton. The streets of Jersey City, and Newark, seemed almost deserted and post-apocalyptic to my California senses. But at least I finally saw Lady Liberty and Manhattan, including the WTC.

Whether it's preferable to die by asteroid or to visit Jersey City is serious business, so my choice of folder was absolutely correct.
