Predicting the Future Isn’t As Easy As You Might Think

Predicting the future isn’t easy! What do you think?

I guess on the one hand, it’s horrible difficult to predict the future with any kind of accuracy. But on the other, it’s fairly simple to find today’s most popular phenomenon and then go back to locate someone who said it couldn’t be done.

Don’t you think?

When you go about predicting the future, like the infamous Nostradamus, he’s likely batting a miserable percentage. It’s not easy folks.

I mean, here’s a prediction of his:

“After there is great trouble among mankind, a greater one is prepared. The great mover of the universe will renew time, rain, blood, thirst, famine, steel weapons and disease. In the heavens, a fire seen”

What does that even mean?

Predicting the Future For Real

For more fun with predicting the future, head over to Mashable and their Surprisingly Accurate Vintage Predictions of the Future.

Or even better, find what the Author of Life hid in Old Testament prophecies, which have come true. Here are a few of the trickier predictions:

  • Messiah would be born of a virgin.
  • Messiah would be crucified with criminals. (Crucifixion wasn’t invented yet.)
  • Soldiers would gamble for Messiah’s garments.
  • Messiah’s bones would not be broken.

Steep Extreme Skiing Videos: Mission Steeps

Click on the image above to visit Vimeo where the Mission Steeps movie can be played. They don’t allow us to embed it, which makes no sense.

Beautifully done video follows Xavier de Le Rue and Sam Anthamatten around the globe (Switzerland, France, Alaska) as they conquer some of the steepest extreme skiing on planet Earth.

Heart-wrenching in it’s visual perfection: >Mission Steeps.

I wish I could ski far more than I actually get to. Enjoy!

21st Century Paladin Dojo Info – 11/6/13

The Paladin dojo covers topics from energy producing roads to a new malaria vaccine.
  1. Breakthrough in battle against malaria as new vaccine proves 100 per cent effective against disease for the first time in history
    100% is a good number, a strong number. I like it.
  2. Canadian man born blind sees for the first time at age 68 after he FELL down the stairs
    Ok so… who wants a shoove?
  3. Korea constructs road that wirelessly charges moving electric buses
    Now we’re talking! Can we next make one that doesn’t fall to pieces in 5 years?
  4. Rubble rescue: Tool can ‘see’ heartbeat of disaster-trapped victims
    Bet this wasn’t discovered by a government sponsored grant.
  5. How I taught a homeless man to build an app in a week
    Charity shouldn’t be mandated or forced. It should be done out the goodwill of one human being to another. Great job Patrick McConlogue! (How is it that the British Daily Mail does a better job finding these stories than our American media? Agenda perhaps?)

There’s More Life than Just this World. Lovesong to a Departed.

A Letter From Fred from Green Shoe Studio on Vimeo.

We were made for each other.

Husband for wife. Wife for husband.

When it’s over, even after 75 years of marriage, it somehow doesn’t feel “right.” That’s why this quote rings true.

[“If we find ourselves with a desire that nothing in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that we were made for another world.” C.S. Lewis

My prayer is that Fred and Lorraine both put their trust in Jesus. Then, they’ll be reunited for all eternity where everything is right.

21st Century Paladin Dojo Info – 8/2/13

Apparently there’s a law that says we all have to visit the Disney Dojo?
  1. Go to Disney Without Going Broke
    Apparently we are all required to take our kids to Disney as least once. Therefore, this information is vital to saving some cash.
  2. Iowa Couple, Both 99, Celebrates 79 Years of Marriage
    This is what society should be celebrating, rather than the inane ramblings of overly rich and privileged.
  3. Boy, 3, who heard for the first time. First child in the U.S. to have an auditory brain stem implant
    Simply incredible what medical science is capable of these days. What an emotional scene this must have been for the parents.
  4. The World’s Most Affordable Places to Retire
    I’m not there yet but I’ll save this link, just in case.
  5. Exclusive: Cancer – A cure just got closer thanks to a tiny British company – and the result could change lives of millions
    This could be HUGE!
