: Perhabs its a bit early to be pleased. : The exact time a war started is allways for historians to decide. : Like in 1914 when what´s his name was killed in : Sarajevo, every historian will tell you the start : of WW I started at that moment.

: Gerwin :::::::::::: Well, even so, I'd be happy if anyone could explain by just what magical mystical methodology anyone thinks they can predict the future regarding anything.

I'll predict the Sun will rise again tommorrow as it has been known to do daily. That's an easy one any fool can predict.

Claiming to be able to predict what mankind will specifically do several years from now is right up there with Used Car Salesmen and Snake Oil Hucksters however.

Various so called religious leaders, self-proclaimed seers and prophets of doom have come and gone over the millenia, and not a single one of them has ever been right about predicting anything.

Makes you wonder why so many of them continue to try even today.

Is called self-delusion.
