Time to check in with the wacky folks of The Lords’ Witnesses and the True Bible Code who have been unsuccessfully predicting a nuclear bomb would blow up the U.N. Plaza in New York since last April. When we last checked in they were up to their 10th guess and were entertaining the idea that they might give up if it turned out not to come true. It was a startling admission that gave us all hope that they might finally shut the hell up and stop making fools of themselves, but it was silly to get our hopes up. I said in my last entry that I wasn’t optimistic they’d actually stop if they were wrong as they’d just come up with a new excuse to keep on guessing and it turns out my cynicism was right as they’re now onto their 11th guess. At this rate I’ve got a better success rate at making predictions than they do, but then my predictions are pretty safe ones to make given the nature of the people we’re dealing with here.
Anyway, here’s the excuse they’re using this time:
On April 29th we started predicting dates for a terrorist Nuclear Bomb at the UN in midtown. After making several mistakes we thought that that 1 Kings 18:43 declared we would get it right at the 8th attempt (Since Elijah asked his attendant to go and look for a man made mushroom cloud 7 times after the first no show, making 8 attempts in all). The trouble with that interpretation is that it co-existed with the interpretation that the 7 festival lookouts symbolised 7 different nuclear bombs each one falling between the next pair of annual festivals. There were 3 annual festivals in the law of Moses, and there should likewise be 3 annual Christian festivals of the same days in our understanding – see U209. So we had two different interpretations of the same verse of scripture, 1 Kings 18:43. We did note in our commentary on that verse that we had never done this before and it might be a mistake. Well, it was. We have now run out of options with the 7 festival lookout mistakes interpretation for the first bomb. Here are the mistakes we made…
[list snipped to save space]
No nuclear bomb hit the UN on any of the above days. However this failure in prediction presented us with a larger problem than our double interpretation of 1 Kings 18:43. Fixing 1 Kings 18:43 was easy, we merely reverted to a single interpretation, which with hindsight we should have never left. But with research one has to try new ideas!
What’s sad about all of this is that they claim this is “research” when it’s really just a bunch of idiots sitting around making guesses based on Bible versus that don’t have any relation to modern day events. They also own up to the fact that they’ve never done this before yet they still expect people to take them seriously and make plans to avoid being in New York on the dates they keep plucking out of their asses as if there’s any rational basis behind them. If you lived in New York and had taken these guys seriously every time they put out a warning you’d have wasted 11 weekends you could’ve been doing something more productive.
Being True Believers™ through and through, though, they won’t let a little thing like complete and utter failure 10 times in a row get in the way of their belief that they’re just this side of getting it right. At this rate I’ll probably give up on reporting on them long before they give up making predictions.
