Whitley Strieber - teotwawki prediction

greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

Maybe most here believe that Whitley Strieber (author of UFO mega-hit books "Communion", "Transformation", and others) is just a nut, plain and simple. You might be right. But I have corresponded with him by email and found him quite sensitive, rational, and thoughtful. Anyway, haven't got any word on his view of y2k specifically, but the following interesting quotes appear on his site (www. strieber.com)

-BH *************************************************************

I have also gained a mission: our world is going to go through a time of great agony. I can tell you this: many of the people who now hold sway over us are going to end up despised by a thousand future generations. Their names will echo in the ages as the names of the blackest demons of hell.

At the same time, there is going to be a path found through the maelstrom, and the ones on the path will bear children, and the children will survive, and mankind will go on. But barely. Just barely.

H. G. Wells wrote a story called In The Country Of The Blind.

Everyone has heard the saying, "In the country of the blind, the one-eyed man is king." Wells' story describes a much more likely outcome for someone who sees what others don't.

This doesn't prove anything --- but it's something to keep in mind.

Whitley is on the Art Bell show now 12/10 if anyone is interested.

Whitley has been predicting doom ever since writing Natures End 15 years ago and Communion 10 years ago (not that there's anything wrong with that). And then again, he does have that direct connection to Cosmic Central via that damn BB they put behind his ear...

Whitley Strieber from what I know thinks we're going to have severe ecological problems. Also, regardless if it's fiction or a true account, "Communion" is a spellbinding must-read.

it's true, communion is a must read. absolutely fascinating!
