This isn't a game of horseshoes - a prediction is right or it's wrong. Otherwise, we'd have to derive some complex algorithm to determine "degree of correctness." It's funny how much effort is spent trying to shoe-horn a missed prediction into the "hit zone." He predicts a major earthquake to occur on a specific date/time, and you allow a "hit" for that prediction if an earthquake occurs anywhere on the planet within a year of that predicted date/time?

My understanding is that he "received" the information so it's more a matter of whether he understood it correctly and what the message really was. It's also funny how some people will demand "proof" to be exact in a desperate effort to avoid acknowledging the improbability of a phenomena. There's about a 1 in 365 chance that such a powerful earthquake would happen within a day or so of the prediction. I'm sorry but that makes it too unlikely to dismiss outright.

Beasts ferocious from hunger will swim across rivers:
The greater part of the region will be against the Hister,
The great one will cause it to be dragged in an iron cage,
When the German child will observe nothing.

The foreign guard will betray the fortress,
Hope and shadow of a higher marriage:
Guard deceived, fort seized in the press,
Loire, Saone, Rhone, Garonne, mortal outrage.

Because of the favor that the city will show
To the great one who will soon lose the field of battle,
Fleeing the Po position, the Ticino will overflow
With blood, fires, deaths, drowned by the long-edged blow.
The Hister is the old name for the Danube. The line refers to a river, not a person.

In a later video this guy, Hoogenbeets [?] , claims that he did not make a "prediction". Well, he did whether he likes it or not. Even if he never used the word prediction in the earlier video, which he has taken off youtube, his words and actions were so consistent with predicting that he did just that. If he had another intent then he should have said "I just have a theory" and/or "I do not expect this to occur".

I can only conclude that this guy is a clown.

You can watch this earlier video where he discusses his "number theory" for calculating major earthquakes.

Yes, the prediction was unlikely to be correct ..... and it wasn't, right?

Or he should've been honest and said "I just want to build hype for San Andreas so that I can make my Hollywood bosses happy."

Guy predicts a huge earthquake will happen the day before San Andreas hits the theaters. How many Google hits do you think the movie got just from people researching this imbecile's "prediction"? It was textbook viral marketing to the point of being satire.
