My mother was big on prophecy when I was growing up. Jean Dixon was one of her favorites. Jean always extolled the correct prophecies that she had made in the past (JFK's assassination for example) Of course these prophecies were always revealed after the fact. I kept track of Ms. Dixon's prophecies for the future (at that time, all of which are now well past the time predicted) Not one, not a single one of her predictions have ever come true. Not the anti-Christ arising in an Arab nation, born in the early 1960's who would challenge the pope. Not the small missile the US government had developed that would prove essential to his eventual defeat, after millions had died in the wars, etc, etc. And the same is true of every other psychic who makes a specific prediction, they just never happen, of course the general ones, like "A great man will die this year" or "There will be a major natural disaster that will kill thousands. Tend to occur just as they always do. Yet people, and my mother up unto the end, continue to believe in prophecy. Why?
