Some possibly pertinent prophecies of oldgreenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread
I recently read Prophecies 2000 by Matthew Bunson. It is a collection of prophecies from a variety of sources, and I thought several were quite interesting.
With Sagittarius at its ascendant A pond shall be stricken by the scythe. Plague, famine, death from martial hand; The Century approaches its renewal. Nostradamus I, 16
For those who live the century through In fear and trembling this shall do. Flee to the mountains and the dens To bog and forest and wild fens. Mother Shipton
Mourn, mourn for this great city whose lavish living has made a fortune for every owner of a sea-going ship; Ruined within a single hour. Book of Revelation
There will be two more popes after Pope Paul VI. One of the popes will have a very short reign. After that will come the end times, though they will not bring the end of the world. Prophecy of Mary at Garabandal
and in possible reference to those contrails over some cities recently
Cobwebs shall be spun across the sky near the Day of the Great Purification. Hopi Prophecy

Pearlie S; The Prophecys have been written for us to decifer intime to warn us of events ahead. Are indeed worth thought. You were to write down the Bible Code also but thought enough is enough. Do we not Create our own Reality,because of our Free Will to do so? I await the several dates to see the Purification, 1st, 5-5-2000 and the 2sd, Dec 21,2012 Until the Next time, I am Furie...

Something like LBJ's simile --You're caught in a hailstorm out on a country road in Texas. There's nowhere to run, and you can't hide.
Always wondered what utility these prophecies have. If they're unavoidable, case closed. If they're not on target, what's the point?

the purpose of prophecy is to change the future by changing your ways. it goes without saying that the future is not carved in stone.

If the future is not carved in stone then how does the universe know which info to send back in time to the prophet who then predicts the future?? I make it sound confused because it is, metaphysically speaking.

Mother Shipton was born in Knaresborough, Yorkshire, in 1488. Here's her last prophecy.
In nineteen hundred and twenty-six build houses light of straw and sticks. For then shall mighty wars be planned and fire and swords shall sweep the land. When pictures seem alive with movements free, when boats like fishes swim beneath the sea. When men like birds shall scour the sky. Then half the world, deep drenched in blood shall die. For those who live the century through in fear and trembling this shall do. Flee to the mountains and the dens to bog and forest and wild fens.
For storms will rage and oceans roar when Gabriel stands on sea and shore, and as he blows his wondrous horn old worlds die and new be born. A fiery dragon will cross the sky six times before the earth shall die. Mankind will tremble and frightened be for the six heralds in this prophecy.
For seven days and seven nights man will watch this awesome sight. The tides will rise beyond their ken. To bite away the shores and then the mountains will begin to roar and earthquakes split the plain to shore. And flooding waters rushing in, will flood the lands with such a din that mankind cowers in muddy fen and snarls about his fellow men.
He bares his teeth and fights and kills and secrets food in secret hill and ugly in his fear, he lies to kill marauders, thieves and spies. Man flees in terror from the floods and kills, and rapes and lies in blood and spilling blood by mankind's hand will stain and bitter many lands.
And when the dragon's tail is gone man forgets and smiles and carries on. To apply himself - too late, too late for mankind has earned deserved fate. His masked smile, his false grandeur, will serve the gods their anger stir and they will send the dragon back to light the sky--his tail will crack. Upon the earth and rend the earth and man shall flee, king, lord and serf.
But slowly they are routed out to seek diminishing water spout and men will die of thirst before the oceans rise to mount to the shore. And lands will crack and rend anew do you think it strange, it will come true. And in some far--off distant land some men--oh such a tiny band will have to leave their solid mount and span the earth, those few to count.
Who survives this (unreadable) and then begin the human race again. But not on land already there, but on ocean beds, stark, dry and bare. Not every soul on earth will die, as the dragon's tail goes sweeping by, not every land on earth will sink, but these will wallow in stench and stink, of rotting bodies of beast and man, of vegetation crisped on land.
But the land that rises from the sea will be dry and clean and soft and free. Of mankinds dirt and therefore be, the source of man's new dynasty. and those that live will ever fear the dragon's tail for many year but time erases memory You think it strange. but it will be.
And before the race is built anew, a silver serpent comes to view and spew out men of like unknown to mingle with the earth now grown cold from its heat and these men can enlighten the minds of future man to intermingle and show them how to live and love and thus endow. the children with the second sight. a natural thing so that they might grow graceful, humble and when they do the golden age will start anew.
The dragon's tail is but a sign for mankind's fall and man's decline. and before this prophecy is done I shall be burned at the stake, at l My body cinged and my soul set free You think I utter blasphemy you're wrong. These things have come to me this prophecy will come to be.
