The problem with prophecy.

People are are good at justifying their actions after the fact and seeing faces on things where there aren't any (Like seeing a face on a piece of toast).  People are really good at this.  

The problem with prophecy is that first you have to interpret the prophetic words and make the interpretation fit the current state of affairs.  If you want a specific outcome, then you will bend those words to match your desired outcome.  Even scientists can fall into this trap which is why their work and their data has to replicated by other scientists who desire a different outcome ;)

The other problem is that history seems to repeat itself so it is easy to map a given prophecy to different points in time at the time it is occurring.  This is why people have claimed the end of the world is eminent at different points in time.

Throughout my life I have wished for the end of the world and saw proof of it everywhere. But that wish was born out of my desire to finally rid myself of rush hour traffic ;)
