The United States will collapse in 2008

Wow, what a year! I’ve been sort of pessimistic about the future of the U.S. but I never in my wildest dreams thought I’d see its collapse this year. That’s just what a new book of end-time prophecies is predicting.

If you like debunking prophecies, 2008 will be a great year for you… the free book 2008 – God’s Final Witness makes these claims, and many more:

Some of these prophecies concern the demise of the United States over the next year, which will be followed by man’s final world war. This last war will be the result of clashing religions and the governments they sway. Billions will die! This time will far exceed even the very worst times in all human history.

If you like Dan Brown’s books, you’ll love this book even more! The author is close buds with God and has learned many secrets that have heretofore been hidden:

Unlike The Da Vinci Code or the Left Behind series, which are fiction, 2008-God’s Final Witness is true and reveals hidden secrets that man has not been able to uncover for thousands of years. Of the three major religions of the world who claim belief in the God of Abraham (Islam, Judaism and Christianity), no one has ever known the prophecies that are revealed in this book, which are beginning to unfold even now.

2008-God’s Final Witness reveals the Seven Thunders of the Book of Revelation, which the apostle John was not allowed to record!

At least the author isn’t trying to make a buck off of scaring people. You can download a PDF or order a free copy.

Let’s all get a copy and make a check list to see how many of the prophecies actually come to pass. I’d love it if someone could keep track of this and we could post a recap at the end of the year. Anyone volunteers?

  1. And I just opened a savings account too. That’s that idea dow nthe drain :(

    I love how on page 5 he decries other (as he calls them) ‘religious opportunists’.

    Stones and glasshouses come to mind.

  2. Well, stuff like that makes me glad I live in my little rural backwater. They say we’re always 30 years behind the rest of the world.

    With that said, religions don’t have a monopoly on doomsday predictions. There are tons of books and websites, many actually from credible scientists, on our imminent downfall. Global warming, Peak Oil, financial Armageddon, Peak arable land, nuclear terrorism, Peak fish, Peak food, Peak everything. Pick your doom!

  3. But… if the world ends, there won’t be anyone left to keep track of predictions that do come true.

    That’s one of the problems with being a doomsday prophet. Eventually, one of them is going to be right, but what good will that be if they’re not around to gloat?

    That’s why, before I make any prophecies of my own, I’m building an interstellar spaceship so that I can wait in orbit and watch as the world ends. Then I get to say “I told you so.” Who’s with me? :D

    Very true, and these dooms vary from being complete and utter nonsense (Massive species extinctions, running out of room for landfills, etc.) to legitimate concerns magnified beyond all proportion (Take your pick) .

  5. 8) Coooool. 2008 has pretty much sucked for me so far, so at least I don’t have to worry about 2009 being worse.

    I went through the whole site looking for the punchline, but it looks like he’s serious. I was kind of hoping he’d have something really obvious, like speaking tours into next year, but no luck. I am curious, though, to know if he’s cashed out all his 401Ks — I can’t imagine that worldwide destruction and billions (or hundreds of millions, depending on where in the site you look) of people dying is going to be all that good for interest rates. And of course he won’t need his investments next year!

    I just finished reading Michael Shermer’s “How We Believe”, and he had some interesting thoughts about humankind’s need to periodically come up with endtime scenarios … I turned it back in to the library yesterday though, and I can’t quite remember the salient points clearly enough to summarize them. Bummer. Maybe somebody else familiar with the work knows what I’m talking about?

  6. “I guess since the world is ending, he’s not really concerned. It’s touching really.”

    I do wonder if those who make these kind of predictions will take advantage of their last moments alive, maybe sell their houses and rent somewhere or something similar.

    Does anyone know if this tends to be the case?

  7. If the World does end in 2008, that conclusively proves that either God is a liar and doesn’t keep His promises, or that the Old Testament is bogus.

    The founding premise of the Abrahamic religions was the Covenant between God and Abraham, where in return for his worship (and his willingness to kill his son), God Promised to Abraham that he would have as many descendants as there are stars in the sky and grains of sand on the seashore.

    Both of those numbers are on the order of 10^22. So far there have only been something like 10^11 humans have ever lived, and only a fraction of them are descendants of Abraham.

    Either there has to be a whole lot of begetting in the rest of 2008 (better hurry, there are not even 9 months left!), or God lied, or the Old Testament is bogus.

  8. I think we can all feel safe with the fact that when we reach 2009, the nuts will just find another doomsday scenario. Just in case, everyone quiets down, let’s remember we are all going to die in 2012 anyway. At least that was what the Mayans said. And we should always trust the the religious rantings of a culture that was decimated by a drought.

  9. “Just in case, everyone quiets down, let’s remember we are all going to die in 2012 anyway. At least that was what the Mayans said.”

    No, actually they didn’t. New age doofuses interpreting the Mayan calendar said it.

  10. One of my favorite things to do when I worked in a bookstore was to pull and return (or destroy) books of end-time prophecy that had become out-of-date. it didn’t happen frequently, but it was always a good laugh when it did.

  11. Enjoy those batteries while they last. Unless some brilliant biologist comes up with a synthetic y chromosome, or the several following generations of cloned females evolve hermaphrodite traits in a hurry, that’ll probably spell the end for the human race as a whole in just a few generations.

    But still, you girls are welcome to come visit me on my interstellar spaceship.

  12. Barack and Hillary are having a debate on Faith, but not willing to do Science Debate 2008. Of course, the US is doomed if they are looking to argue about what they believe without proof.

    Of course, if anyone wants to move to Singapore and start a skeptics group here, the country consistently ranks highly on math and science education. It may not be as cool as a spaceship, but they actually want educated people here and the food is great.

    Any other disgusted expats out there who can offer suggested escapes from American anti-scientism? A debate on Faith? Can’t we just take them out to a swimming pool and see which one can walk on water?

  13. I do wonder if those who make these kind of predictions will take advantage of their last moments alive, maybe sell their houses and rent somewhere or something similar.

    Does anyone know if this tends to be the case?

    Back in my fundy days, just before Y2K, I knew a guy who took all of his money out of the banks. His family bought a small patch of land in a remote area to flee to when the time came. He didn’t sell his house though, they planned to stay there until they were forced to run. (I couldn’t really blame him for his lack of faith. He was a Seventh-Day Adventist and they were burned twice before with end time predictions.)

    That’s the thing about the end times, you can’t really take advantage of it because you’re too busy running from the hoards of anti-christ worshipers trying to kill you.

  14. I don’t know why you would bother to sell anything if the world was ending. Are you going to take the money with you into the afterlife?

    Though I suppose you could then have one hell of a party on the night before doomsday!

  15. Here’s the thing – if you believe in a Chinese afterlife, you have to buy lots of paper mockups of what you want in the afterlife and make sure they burn up as part of doomsday.

    And the stuff you can get is cool – everything from a fake Happy Meal to a nice house with a dog to a submachine gun. You just need to get them burned to your afterlife address.

    So if you are going to spend all your money before armageddon convert some to “ghost money” and get yourself a nice timeshare on the River Styx. Just a thought.
