    Apparently, god told him so. http://www.cnn.com/2007/US/01/02/robertson.predictions.ap/index.html" [Broken]

    We're so lucky to have an oracle in Pat Robertson. I know I'll definitely be buying property in Montana, digging a fallout shelter, and stocking up on canned goods :rolleyes: :rofl:

    Pat is nuttier than a pack of cashews. Remember when he claimed God gave him the strength to leg lift 2000 pounds!

    No I didn't! :grumpy:


    The problem with this rubbish is that with enough followers in high places this could become a self-fulfilling prophecy.

    How do these people know it is god speaking and not an alien in a UFO with advanced technology beaming these thoughts into their mind? Surely it is possible that there are aliens out there that enjoy roaming around the universe pulling practical jokes on lesser life forms.

    This is what happened to Jonah. Ninevah repented, and Jonah was made to look a fool. Oh well, that's prophesy biz.
