The person who started the thread with his prediction, Xinoehpoel (Leo Pheonix?), has been excessivly pro-terrorist in his following replies. It appears that he has since been repeatedly reported to the FBI after several thread users traced his IP to San-Francisco (I think). Now the thread has gone all higgledy-piggledy. D+mn FBI. ;)

Lets not have a go at the FBI.
It's their job to get to the bottom of it, whatever it takes.
And good luck to them.

Seems impossible to locate the original posting which gave
rise to the thread but my guess is that contributors to a
Nostradamus Board keep up a constant tone of
impending apocalypse.

Every now and then, something is bound to fit the bill.

There are also accusations on the site that the posting was doctored
after the events. :cross eye

With reference really to the title of this thread??? Didn't Hollywood predict the Trade Towers attack???

Line quoted from Gidzilla which was made PRIOR to the Trade towers attack

"this is the worst we have seen since the terrorist attack on the World Trade Centre"

Something to check up on next time you watch it?? Did hollywood know something we didn't?

That probably refers to the 93' bombing. Spooky nonetheless.

The Lone Gunmen pilot was a story based around a terrorist attack on NY wasn't it?

I don't watch the Lone Gunmen so for me that last comment has gone waay over my head :D

I've read a fair number of books, all written way before 11/9, where there's parallels - in fact, I'm currently reading 'Black Market' by James Patterson (published 1986) where terrorists are blowing up the financial district of NY.
Another one by Dale Brown had a terrorist using commercial airliners to drop bombs on (and crash into) airports (in the book, resulted in complete shut down of US airspace, followed by fighter patrols whose job was to inspect and if necessary shoot down any planes that deviate from their flight plans) - all reminiscent of the aftermath, but written before.
Finally (to name just 3 that sprung to mind), the Tom Clancy one (can't remember which) that ends with a passenger airliner being deliberately flown into the White House (or one of the buildings around there), again written way before.

Perhaps instead of Hollywood (and authors) predicting what will come, the terrorists have simply read these books or watched the films and had an idea...

I think that it is much more likely that writers, film makers and terrorists are all merely acknowledging the fact that modern Global Capitalism means that the entire Planet's resources and markets depend upon, and revolve around, a precious few stock exchange market floors and international trading centres.

That is where the real dramas of our times are played out as fortunes the size of small nations' annual gross domestic product are played for, lost and won on a daily basis.

If Ian Fleming was writing 'Casino Royale' today, he'd set it in Wall Street and call it, 'NASDEQ.' Bond would be undercover as a 'corporate raider' and trying to track down the oily perpetrators of a major stock fraud that involves a terrorist plot to use 'electronic pulse' nukes to help them corner the market in new solar technology, as the Middle East's oil reserves finally run dry.

Whilst I confess to believing in nothing:- I do find it impressive reassuring intriguing that President Trump managed to predict a terrorist attack in Sweden about 47 days in advance of this recent truck episode happening (back in February)

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2017/feb/19/sweden-trump-cites-non-existent-terror-attack


Since, unlike me, many people on this forum tend to honestly believe the reality we are served-up with, by our news media, can someone please give me a convincing (well, any kind of) explanation regarding this odd situation?

nb in this particular instance it shall be deemed as an unacceptable response for anyone to simply say "but, it was just Trump...well, you know what he's like". If we use that as the reactive explanation, we may as well suspend all validity of comment from the current POTUS, in all circumstances.

So: what'll it be???

There was actually a failed terrorist attack in Sweden in 2010. Besides of course all the averted ones.

Trump spews hundreds of things out of his mouth every day. Eventually one will happen just out of sheer chance.

"If we use that as the reactive explanation, we may as well suspend all validity of comment from the current POTUS, in all circumstances."
I already discount anything the Angry Creamsicle says.

There have been serious attempts to manipulate the financial markets by insider knowledge of upcoming terrorist events. Either by terrorists themselves or those in the know. The recent attack on the Dortmund soccer team bus is also related.

This podcast is really informative - and quite funny at the same time.

I remember SOLLOG(Son of Light - Light of God, also known as John Patrick Ennis) created a lot of buzz when he allegedly predicted and published on Usenet about 9/11 the day before the attack. Perhaps he was just "lucky" with his predictions.

He was a character on the internet around the millenium and still got his websites up and running(I think...).

I'm not sure that he actually did. It doesn't seem to be confirmed anywhere.

However, he does have a rather nice entry in the "Encyclopedia of American Loons":

He is especially fond of apocalyptic prophecies, and has claimed to have foreseen quite a lot of things, though as with all prophets he didn’t quite manage to prophecy these things before they happened. But he sure post-predicted it afterwards. Of course, since Sollog generally posts new apocalyptic prophecies pretty much all the time it is rather easy for him to say that he (sorta) predicted any bad event that might happen, but that doesn’t count. He also enjoys applying random capitalization in the tradition of modern-day prophets.
