Holy Bullshit

Preacher: God told him about storms, tsunami
Robertson says warning was for this year; tsunami might hit Northwest

From the AP:

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. - In another in a series of notable pronouncements, religious broadcaster Pat Robertson says God told him storms and possibly a tsunami will hit America's coastline this year.

Ash says: That is a convenient prediction considering both the frequency and intensity of hurricanes have been steadily increasing in recent years.

"If I heard the Lord right about 2006, the coasts of America will be lashed by storms," Robertson said May 8. On Wednesday, he added, "There well may be something as bad as a tsunami in the Pacific Northwest."

Ash says: First of all, I love that he left himself an out by saying "If I heard the Lord right..." What?? Does the Lord mumble or something? "There well may be something as bad as a tsunami in the Pacific Northwest." Once again, leaving him self an out with "There well may be something..." Scientists have been saying this for YEARS! I live in the Pacific Northwest and we even have tsunami evacuations signs on the highways in some areas. That's like saying a volcano could erupt in the Pacific Northwest.

This poll scares me. You mean to tell me that 8,670 believe that he is telling the truth and 8,670 people aren't sure? Yikes.
