Many religious leaders woke up on September 11, 2001 to breaking news. Some of them reacted with shock and profound sorrow, like the rest of us. Others had to wipe the drool from their lips. But during those weeks of hype and rhetoric buzzing around the most prophecy-fixated of the Armstrong cults, PCG, one curious fact went unnoticed. “That prophet” was caught with his pants down! Flurry never saw this earth-shattering, world-changing event coming. Why not?
Why could he only exploit the tragedy after the fact? That’s not impressive. It’s evidence of nothing except Flurry’s douchebaggery. If Flurry’s god really wanted to accomplish the “Work” Flurry has imagined for him, a prediction of 9/11, sent through his chosen prophet, would seem to be a no-brainer.
Think about it. Flurry makes the following claims for his god:
1) He wants to warn the whole world about its impending doom.
2) He is doing this through Flurry.
3) He wants to give the whole world enough evidence in support of his message that they will be “without excuse” when it comes to pass.
Thus far he has provided no such evidence. However, 9/11 was a single, dramatic event that the whole world noticed. If it had been genuinely predicted by Flurry’s god, through Flurry, he would have been expertly positioned to promote Flurry’s message on the grand scale Flurry spuriously claims it already enjoys.
The fact that he didn’t take advantage of such an opportunity is an indication that this god is either stupid or non-existent. In other words, Flurry’s failure to predict 9/11 is not only an indictment against his self-proclaimed status as a prophet, but against the entire belief system he attempts (in his wobbly fashion) to stand for.
The proponents of biblical prophecy love to harp on us skeptics being “without excuse,” but when it comes to putting up some evidence that prophecy has ever actually predicted anything, their efforts are lackluster to say the least. But what a coup it would be for them if 9/11 had been foretold! Except that it wasn’t. And that counts as evidence against their claims.
