Bible prophecy being fulfilled rapidly and very accurately, Either the bible is gods word or whoever wrote it is one HELL of a good guesser.
There isn't one legitimate supernatural prophecy in the Bible.

The "prophecies" range from vague to wrong to unconfirmable to written after the events.

People created global warming by using too much carbon energy, and people are going to have to clean it up. People have created overpopulation and people are going to have to deal with it. Cheap oil has run out, humans will have to deal with it and scientists are working hard to come up with new sourcesof energy, and they will. People do all of these things and they have to then clean up the messes they make. God doesn't do one thing. If you were born in Iran you would be a Muslim and you would be convinced you are supposed to kill Jews and Christians cause your religion says so.

watch on youtube...''guy makes fun of bill nye'' some ex airforce officer witnessed and recorded a UFO and bill nye tries to discredit him...even though the dude seen with his own two eyes, thats what science does, even if you undoubtly witness something out of the ordinary, science tries to make you feel like a lier or like your stupid, thats why pilots, and government personel who have seen things dont say anything, they will be labeled as crazy and discarded. All the while the major populace will be good little sheep and refuse to believe strange things,happen. Its changing though, people are starting to realize...the earth and space is not what it seems or what we think it is.

So what you're saying "Gods gonna use the elements of earth" (SIC)....taking that a step further, could He have also used the processes we now know as Physics, Geological processes, and Biological processes -- which include the Theory of Evolution -- as part of His 'toolkit' with which to do His bidding?

lol, there are a few christians in iran pamela, dont assume. And yes you are right, we create problems and god does nothing. I would hope you dont wipe an adult childs behind everytime he loses a job due to faults of his own, that would be spoiling them. If god wiped our cans everytime we dropped the cosby kids off at the pool we would be more whiney and ungrateful than we already are. Its called ''live and learn'' however it WILL get so bad eventually that god will intervene and thats happening now. Islam was created, 600+ yrs after the bible, by prophet mohammed..who claimed he was visited by an angel of light. The bible says,''Lucifer can appear in guise as an angel of light''''the bible is complete''''curse to those that add or take away from this book.'' Islam would be considered adding to, since it is a false doctrine.

Everyone lives out of science. People live by medical care, advances in medicine, by having central heat and air, buy all the things science discovers. If not for science, we would all still be living in caves and there would be no doctors. Men made up the gods before scientists found out why the earth has earthquakes, why there are floods, before man found out how to cure diseases. People made up gods to cope with natural disasters and with disease and death. But, man uses science, not gods, to deal with all of those things. And, now that global warming is upon us, again it will be the scientists who figure it out, who move us off of carbon energy, who move humans into a new sustainable way of living. The gods won't do anything, as always because they are not real, and people will keep fighting over their different religions while science continues to solve the problems and everyone uses science to live.

By supernatural, I mean they could not be reasonably predicted by a person: they would require special powers.

There is not one legitimate supernatural prophecy in the Bible.

absolutely!!! Now you understand. Praise god an atheist gets it. However,evolution was interupted or the process sped up by god. Adam and eve were himosapien, but the ''beasts'' genesis talks about very well coulda been neandrathals, genesis very distinctively describes ''cattle'' and ''beasts'' as two different things, a higher being such as god and or us, would probably generalize,''cavemen'' into animalistic category with others because then they were common unlike now. Which is why cain was able to populate his city even though he was 1 of 5 humans on earth. Adam, eve, cain, abel, and seth. How did cain build a city? Lesser humans ''aka''''cavemen'' were his populace, he taught them many trades. It gets deeper, check it out. Google...''cavemen dwelt with adam and eve.''

Joseph Smith founder of Mormons also was visited by an ''angel of light'' they gave him a goldenbook to add to the bible...too bad ole smith didnt read the last few verses in revelation, he could have saved bis soul if he had.

No, there were prophecies of things in the past that were supposed to have occurred over 2,000 years ago and they still have not happened. Failed prophesies.

Where is your evidence that there was a "great quake" on the day that Jesus was crucified? Since there were no contemporaneous writers that ever mentioned him you are going t have a tough job finding any support. Earthquakes happen. You need both time and locale nailed down.

...you simple fool.

I've ALWAYS "gotten it", and I am NOT an "atheist".

I am an "agnostic", meaning I am open to the concept of a Supreme Deity (God).

But in my PERSONAL belief system,*IF* there is a god, it is certainly NOT the petty, cartoon-type deity as written about in the Bible.

Please grow up.

The Bible is F A B L E. It is a book of M Y T H O L O G Y.

There was no REAL "Adam" or "Eve".

God (if He exists), did NOT 'mold man out of clay", or make Eve out of Adam's Rib. There was no Noachian Flood of world-wide proportions. The universe and earth are each BILLIONS of years old.

The world is a WONDERFUL, MARVELOUS place once you appreciate it for what it REALLY is. THEN go back if you will and attribute the REAL actions that resulted in this universe back to your favorite Deity, for all I care.

But deal in reality, not fable.

And CERTAINLY don't teach your mythology to my children as "science".

There is no set time for prophecies to occur man...daniels dream span'd over thousands of years describing rome and eventually us...the iron mixed with clay. Daniel 11:41-45 also known as the arab spring that started in 2011 is hard to deny, it names the countries by name for,godsake. Open your sewn eye.

First off you lost by posting more than one. Remember I said "No Galloping". Second these are a mish mash of nonpredictions and end time predictions. End time predictions are nonsensical since by definition they are not prophesies.

So do you have any real prophesies that you want to claim or are you just full of fail?

At the risk of sounding a little less intellectual then the rest of you, I will make a comment on books. There are many chapter's in a science book. Many theories and explanations concerning physics etc. Those books are for those who believe in science as our life force, our reason for being. The christian world holds their faith in a book that holds many chapters. Also pertaining to our life force,our reason for being. The difference I have found in these two books is one offers NOT a hint of love. The other speaks of love in every chapter. NOW, I myself want to believe a force that tells me he loves me, will never forsake me, fear not I will never leave you, I will save you and your household from the horrors to come. No science book has ever told me anything like that. So, I'm hanging with "Rev".
