Like most people I enjoy when I discover that I am correct about something, but when I publish a prognostication that comes to pass, I feel brilliant. It is clear that I got lucky with one of my posts, and as soon as I am finished patting myself on the back I will explain.
Way back in 2016 I posted an article, that at the time caught my attention. It was about, of all things, the possibility, actually the probability that a terrible virus would be unleashed which would infect, most of the world. Some people believed that it was inevitable. Suddenly in 2020 along comes the coranavirus, (Covid-19) appearing as if it were preordained. Maybe it was!
I am a news reporter–not a news maker, so it is a bit strange that I would have been so strongly drawn to put a story on my website that turned out to be prophetic. With that in mind, read, or reread what I posted in 2016. It predicted that the virus we now face in 2020. Apparently it was planned for some time.
MY ORIGINAL POST FROM 2016 FOLLOWS:
For one of my first posts in the Health Matters Section, I decided to scare the heck out of you. I imagine that by starting with something simply too bad to contemplate, it will make most of the other health news seem like all good news.
Professor Stephen Hawking, the scientists most well known for his theories time, and on the nature of back holes—the ones in space, and also a leading proponent of not advertising to the galaxy our presence here on earth, is now speaking out on things so small we can’t see them without a microscope. He contends that a virus could end it all for humanity. Not a pleasant thought!
