Well, who says I don't believe in Gods or prophecy, GUEST? I just may interpret that prophecy in a different way, though...as a metaphor for something that happens inside a human being rather than out there in the outer World. Or I might not. Depends on the prophecy. A lot of the prophecies in Revelation appear to me to be about the decline and fall of the Roman Empire, for instance. If so, they were fulfilled quite some time ago. Christ also prophesied the destruction of Jerusalem (by the Romans). The persecution of Christians by Imperial Rome was also prophesied. Any number of things have been prophesied here and there...many of them by holy men who are not part of either the Bible or the Christian religion. Same came true, and some did not...or not in the way that people expected.

I imagine that Hitler figured the World was ending in April 1945! For him and his regime, it most certainly did.
