    If you are religious and believe in the Bible and God, I would suggest you follow the Bibles admonition against listening to soothsayers and fortune tellers and Psychics.

    meh.. it's kinda like the whole psychic schtick.. say enough vague shit until the mark reacts with a tell... it's about as impressive as one billion fortune cookies. eventually, a relevant "you are having a nice day" will get to to someone who is.

    "vague shit"? Wow! This sound exactly like being a politician running for Presdent! You can not get more 'vague or say what you think people want to hear' than they do, right? Now we know why they all get FAT! They have eaten too many fortune cookies! :doubt:

    Like the prophesies saying that the messiah would come from the line of David? Those prophesies?

    And, just so you know, I'm not picking at you. It's just I think that people tend to listen to whatever "prophets" or fortunetellers or soothsayers they think suit their religious needs... whether Elijah... or the Book of Revelations... Mohammed or the Dalai Lama or the Oracle at Delphi.

    It's a subject that interests me.

    Divine prophesies are in fact just that, so acceptable. But then you would understand that if you actually practiced a religion.

    Jillian ... I agree with you, "it interests me" too. Saying that does not mean that I take what Nostradamus said to be 'fact' - because what he has said could be the same as what daily horoscopes say - their interpretation can fit many, many area's of your life - (whatever you want to read into them).



    * An astrologer's input into the Whitehouse !! :confused: !! Oh my!!!! ---> AllPolitics - Good Heavens! - May 19, 1988

    For the record ... NO! ...... I do not check my horoscope daily ... I can see that coming, already. :doubt:
