It seems Pat Robertson is at it again. Apparently he is now the weatherman for God as he is now predicting storms on the coast and even a tsunami for the West Coast.
VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. -- The Rev. Pat Robertson says God has told him that storms and possibly a tsunami will hit America's coastline this year.The founder of the Christian Broadcasting Network has told viewers of "The 700 Club" that the revelations came to him during his annual personal prayer retreat in January."If I heard the Lord right about 2006, the coasts of America will be lashed by storms," Robertson said May 8.He added specifics in Wednesday's show."There well may be something as bad as a tsunami in the Pacific Northwest," he said.
I don't really see how some connection to God is neccessary to make these predictions. Increased hurricane activity has been predicted by real meterologists in the last few years attributed to either a repeating upward trend or global warming. A West Coast tsunami is inevitable some year in the future, the only question is when. So, I'll give Robertson some little balls for predicting it to happen this year.
The problem is that if no tsunami hits, Robertson isn't blamed for being wrong. He can just say God works in mysterious ways. And God can't be blamed for making a wrong prediction because Robertson could be lieing, he never heard God. But if you ask me for a prediction, I think Robertson will one day be committed to a mental institute or treated for mental problems.
By the way, I've written about the many earth science potential disasters that could happen and that FEMA is probably not prepared for. Pat Robertson should consult my list for further predictions he could make.
