The outright crazy predictions raise a serious question about science education. Nostradamus is there, of course, predicting July 1999. Sheldan Nidle had 16 million spaceships coming in 1996, and Nancy Lieder had the twelfth planet, Nibiru, crashing into Earth in 2003 and both dates since revised to December 21, 2012.
Ronald Reagan’s psychic adviser Jeane Dixon predicted February 4, 1962, later updated to “2020-2037”. Assorted people worried about the Large Hadron Collider in 2010 and Comet Elenin in 2011, with the Earth being sucked into a black hole or shattered into a million pieces.
We finally made it….but who knows when it will all end….
