Well, as you can see, this is my first post here, so, I don't really know where this type of thing is supposed to go. :oops: I just came from this site and it was talking about all of these predictions years/months in advance of them happening. I want to know what you guys think about this...

Welcome to the board.

This type of thing would probably be better on the BABBling section than here (it seems more concerned with the paranormal than astronomy). James Randi's site might be even better.

Sollog is a total lunatic. He used to be a regular somewhere on Usenet - possibly sci.skeptic. He would predict, for example, an earthquake 20 miles south of Tokyo at 7.48 pm Wednesday with a severity of 6.5 on the Richter scale. When an earthquake occurred 250 miles north of Tokyo at 3.21pm Thursday of Richter 3.2, he would consider that close enough and take credit for it.

Or else he'd write some incomprehensible poem, then try to show that some later event fits into the poem and therefore predicted.

Or, as in the case he gives, he says the number 113 is significant, so then he can take credit for any event that happens on January 13, March 11, November 3, or any number of other dates in any future year.

Considering that the "old" Nostradamus batted zero until hindsight and extremely loose interpretation gave him a winning score, I won't be placing too many eggs in the basket of someone angling to become the "new" Nostradamus.

I do like
Everything you know is a LIE! which implies that if I believe him he must be wrong.
