    Twin Towers prediction in Bible

    Isaiah 22 (New International Version)
    1 An oracle concerning the Valley of Vision:
    What troubles you now,
    that you have all gone up on the roofs,
    2 O town full of commotion,
    O city of tumult and revelry?
    Your slain were not killed by the sword,
    nor did they die in battle.

    3 All your leaders have fled together;
    they have been captured without using the bow.
    All you who were caught were taken prisoner together,
    having fled while the enemy was still far away.

    4 Therefore I said, "Turn away from me;
    let me weep bitterly.
    Do not try to console me
    over the destruction of my people."

    5 The Lord, the LORD Almighty, has a day
    of tumult and trampling and terror
    in the Valley of Vision,
    a day of battering down walls
    and of crying out to the mountains.

    6 Elam takes up the quiver,
    with her charioteers and horses;
    Kir uncovers the shield.

    7 Your choicest valleys are full of chariots,
    and horsemen are posted at the city gates;

    8 the defenses of Judah are stripped away.
    And you looked in that day
    to the weapons in the Palace of the Forest;

    9 you saw that the City of David
    had many breaches in its defenses;
    you stored up water
    in the Lower Pool.

    10 You counted the buildings in Jerusalem
    and tore down houses to strengthen the wall.

    11 You built a reservoir between the two walls
    for the water of the Old Pool,
    but you did not look to the One who made it,
    or have regard for the One who planned it long ago.

    12 The Lord, the LORD Almighty,
    called you on that day
    to weep and to wail,
    to tear out your hair and put on sackcloth.

    13 But see, there is joy and revelry,
    slaughtering of cattle and killing of sheep,
    eating of meat and drinking of wine!
    "Let us eat and drink," you say,
    "for tomorrow we die!"

    14 The LORD Almighty has revealed this in my hearing: "Till your dying day this sin will not be atoned for," says the Lord, the LORD Almighty.

    15 This is what the Lord, the LORD Almighty, says:
    "Go, say to this steward,
    to Shebna, who is in charge of the palace:

    16 What are you doing here and who gave you permission
    to cut out a grave for yourself here,
    hewing your grave on the height
    and chiseling your resting place in the rock?

    17 "Beware, the LORD is about to take firm hold of you
    and hurl you away, O you mighty man.

    18 He will roll you up tightly like a ball
    and throw you into a large country.
    There you will die
    and there your splendid chariots will remain—
    you disgrace to your master's house!

    19 I will depose you from your office,
    and you will be ousted from your position.

    20 "In that day I will summon my servant, Eliakim son of Hilkiah. 21 I will clothe him with your robe and fasten your sash around him and hand your authority over to him. He will be a father to those who live in Jerusalem and to the house of Judah. 22 I will place on his shoulder the key to the house of David; what he opens no one can shut, and what he shuts no one can open. 23 I will drive him like a peg into a firm place; he will be a seat [a] of honor for the house of his father. 24 All the glory of his family will hang on him: its offspring and offshoots—all its lesser vessels, from the bowls to all the jars.

    25 "In that day," declares the LORD Almighty, "the peg driven into the firm place will give way; it will be sheared off and will fall, and the load hanging on it will be cut down." The LORD has spoken.

    Isaiah 23:13 (New International Version)
    13 Look at the land of the Babylonians,
    this people that is now of no account!
    The Assyrians have made it
    a place for desert creatures;
    they raised up their siege towers,
    they stripped its fortresses bare
    and turned it into a ruin.
    Thoughts anyone?

    Too generic. Insert name of anything you want.

    Oh yes, centuries ago, men predicted great skyscrapers would have commercial airliners flying into them.

    Why do you think the Wright Brothers were so diligent?

    They were inspired by god so that a prophecy could be fulfilled.

    The Art or Trick of Prophecy.

    1. Make a prediction in general terms, eg., the US will be visited by forces that will bring destruction.

    2. Wait for something to happen, a twister, an earthquake or something of the kind

    3. Remind people that X said it would happen

    4 Give credit to X and believe his other predictions.

    You nailed it. However it is only prophecy for a certain segment of society.

    5. X's predictions justify committing (form of bigotry/injustice)

    The Wright Brothers were early members of Al Quaeda.
    Islamists the pair of them.
    They knew the time would come when their fanatic followers would use their
    sinister invention to wreck America.

    I claim all film rights on this idea, but I'm willing to share them with
    you, Q, because you thought of it first.

    How come the Bible doesn't predict anything useful, like lottery numbers.
