Magic 8 Ball
What do you think? Prophet? Charlatan? Tabloid Editor? Politician? Comedian?
Regardless of your point of view, it's impossible to ignore his fingerprint on modern society. With every major event, people flock to his quatrains to find some hint that Nosty had pegged one.
Me? I think he was full of crap. I think his proponents are deluded and insecure.
Lately I've had opportunity to watch several programs on him on some of my exploration-type satellite channels. Well, that and the much ballyhooed "Bible Code." While there are aspects of the Bible Code that come off more compelling than Nosty, due to their alleged specificity and accuracy, I find it disconcerting to view the Old Testament I so revere personally as little more than a cosmic Rubik's Cube with puzzles just waiting to be parsed out by the curious. Therefore I approach the Bible Code with much the same skepticism.
It may seem that a guy like me, Bible believer that I am, shouldn't be able to muster up any skepticism, but hey, live with it.
In response to this hooey and to these recent programs I have viewed, I have decided that I too can be an oracle. I have set up a separate blog to record my predictions and their fulfillments...
Okay, lack thereof, but I digress.
Please, join in on the fun. Or point fingers and laugh. Like I care.
