It's seems to me that when you're batting 0 for forever on your prophecies, maybe prophecy isn't really in your wheelhouse. But, hey, what do I know? I'm not the 3rd Eagle of the Apocalypse.
There's another one somewhere where he recently declared the rescue of the miners in Chile to be the beginning of the great tribulation. Something about the significance of the number 33, what with there being 33 miners. No. I'm not kidding.
