    On one level it is because I have ran into what appears to be evidence for non linear time from a number of sources. Chapter five of Dannion Brinkley's book "Saved By The Light" gives about 117 predictions based on what he was shown during his 1975 NDE. About eighty or ninety of the predictions came to pass... but then around the year 2000 it seems like we went off into what sure sounds like a much, much, much, much more positive and less depressing and scary time line????

    Here is one part of what near death experiencer Dannion Brinkley reports being shown about the future.....
    in chapter five of his book "Saved By The Light" he gives a list of predictions that he wrote down in 1975 after his brush with death.

    Most of his prophecies can be read at this link for free.....
    and since I was born in 1959 I think that what he was shown in 1975 about the "future" was kind of impressive.....

    Is there any evidence that the predictions were made in 1975? Were they documented at the time in a book, or other document, such as can now be verified to have existed in 1975?

    Who checked that 80 or 90 of the predictions came to pass? Where is that documented?
    You mean that after 2000 he was wrong?

    ----
    Okay, so let's take a look at the sample of his predictions that you have quoted...
    It's really important to determine if these predictions of his really were recorded prior to the 1990s. Is there any evidence of that, other than Brinkley's say-so?
    None of that happened in the 1990s. It hasn't happened as of 2021.

    But this is rather non-specific, don't you think? What is the biological engineer's name? (What is a biological engineer, anyway?) What "way" was found to alter DNA? What is the specific nature of the alteration, so we can check? What were the huge strides in technology, specifically? At what particular times are Japan, China and the unspecified "other countries" supposed to "become powers of incredible magnitude"? What does "incredible magnitude" mean?
    None of this has happened. This was supposed to happen in the 1990s, wasn't it? Doesn't that mean Brinkley got it wrong?

    Why do you believe it will happen? Why should anybody believe anything here?

    Philosophical:
    Determinism:
    But can you change the already predetermined change?
    If not then predictions about the future are possible and are effectively unchangeable ( unless this was predetermined)
    If yes then predictions about the future are multi verse time lined and not AS possible...
    The question of freewill comes to the for when considering the possibility of a yet to be verified NDE making sound predictions... yes?

    So does the NDE prediction believer, believe in freewill and if so in what form...?
