    As most of you know, I have been very impressed with the many predictions of Dr. Turi. He has been like 99% correct. In October, this is what he predicted for November.

    Nov 7/8/9:Keyword SURPRISE! - Be ready for large explosions, this mean also bombs, volcanoes eruption large earthquakes (Middle East/Japan at risk) and aeronautical accident.

    We had those riots in France, plus the bombings in Jordan. Obvious hit.

    Nov 18/19/20:Keyword NEW LIFE! - Nature devastative forces will force thousands to relocate. Mother Earth has many ways to show her awesome powers (Russia/US at risk).

    And good lord, there is another storm/hurricane brewing in the Atlantic! We shall see how this develops, because most of his predictions similar to this one have turned out to be hurricanes this year, and this hurricane would most likely hit on those dates.

    Nov 28/29/30:Keyword DRAMA/DEATH! - Terrorists will be active, the police will make news, expect monetary/sex/secrets and scandals and a famous person to finish his work on earth.

    According to him, this date could be really bad. We might be expecting a terrorist attack.

    For those of you who still don't believe it, I don't know why [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img] .

    Where are his past predictions that are 99% asccurate?
    (and how can we tell they werent written *after* the fact?)

    lets see all his predictions for the rest of November, and December.
    then we can judge his accuracy on Jan 1st!

    Those are all VERY vague "predictions". There are earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, destructive storms and terrorists activities (bombings and otherwise) happening around the world every hour of every day. Even *I* can make predictions like that!

    I predict that there will be a suicide bombing in the middle east this week.
    I predict there will be devasting tornadoes in the U.S. this month.
    I predict that there will be a tragic fire in the U.S. tomorrow.

    First of all... show me where he posts all his misses so we can determine his accuracy. Someone genuinely interested in discovering the truth and someone confident in what they're doing would gladly post all of their data, because the data would speak for itself. If he only posts his hits, of course he seems accurate (look up "observational selection"). I'd be more impressed if he were only 70% accurate than 99%, because that would imply a bit more honesty on his part. That would also be the difference between a real doctor and someone who just likes to call themselves that.

    Second, like PAK said... how many other blocks of time do the predictions apply to? For example, take the Nov 18/19/20 prediction. Now pretend it's a Nov 8/9/10 prediction. Was it right? Now pretend it's an Oct 28/29/30 prediction. Was it right? Keep going back 3 or 4 months and see how many times it was a hit. I bet it will hit more times than it will miss. Even if he's not a con artist, he just doesn't have information that's useful, and useful is the only measuring stick that counts in this case.

    Third... he lists a bunch of events and lumps them together. The last prediction says, "Terrorists will be active, the police will make news, expect monetary/sex/secrets and scandals and a famous person to finish his work on earth." So does that mean all of those things have to happen to make it a hit? What if there is a big terrorist attack... will he call that a hit? What about the other 3 events? If they didn't come true (though these 3 are laughibly generic and happen constantly), wouldn't the prediction only be 25% accurate? Is that really a hit? How many of his predictions work out that way? If he were to always list 3 events and 2 often came true, that's not 99% accurate, it's no better than 60%.

    I have some beliefs that would be considered "new age", but as far as I'm concerned most of the new age people out there are just as bad as the christians/muslims/whatever who would rather believe what sounds good to them and who aren't interested in questioning their beliefs. That seems to be how it is with any belief system... the 80-20 rule... there are a small number of philosophers who've really argued and explored the implications of what they believe, and a large number of people who just take what they've been told as truth.

    So I'm pleading with you to not let yourself drift toward the latter crowd. The world doesn't need any more of that from any kind of believer. Turi needs to be questioned... and so far he doesn't seem to be holding up very well.
