Did this women correctly predict the Japan earthquake?

This video was uploaded to youtube on March 8, 3 days before the earthquake in Japan. I dont know the accuracy or science behind the video, all I know is it says that it was posted before the earthquake.
Does anyone have an explanation behind the video or is it just pure coincidence?

March 11–23rd? LOL! Come on-if she said the exact day then maybe it’s look, but she gave a window “IT COULD BEEEEEEEEE MARCH 11TH…”. That’s the only way these star signs can be true is if they speak very general.

Look at geological information and see how many earthquakes are in Japan in a year.

@jlelandg

That is the title of the video, but if you watch the video, at least the first two minutes, she says March 11–15, with another event on the 22–23, which apparently Jesus told her. lmao

I am going to correctly predict a tornado in the United State between the dates of March 31st and April 4th!!!!!!!!!!

I predict that within the next ten minutes, I am going to get myself another cup of colombian coffee.

I am back and my prediction came true! Here is a coffee toast to all my Fluther friends.

No.

I am sure that if you search, you can find a million videos of people predicting al sorts of things that didn’t happen.

Confirmation bias rears its ugly head.

There will be an earthquake in the next four hours, before 12:20 p.m. PT.

Given there is an earthquake on average once very two hours in California alone, and I am not restricting my prediction to any location, I think I have made a pretty safe prediction.

@crisw They used to keep that sort of thing in check by stoning people whose predictions didn’t come true. :D

I blame the Federal Reserve.

It’s this kind of waffling nonsense that gives us tree-huggers a bad name.

My prediction was overly accurate! Since I predicted an earthquake at 8:20 a.m. PT,(15:20 UTC) the following earthquakes have occurred:

I would say that this woman was trying to predict a catastrophe with lots of destruction, which did indeed happen, and not some normal earthquake.Thats how this case differs from any other prediction.

HOWEVER, I believe its bullstuff, in which they somehow made the video posted a couple of days before, or some other trick. There is always someone who manages to correctly create a hoax that calls attention (for profit or fame).

Well, one correct prediction does not outweigh the failed predictions of a million men and women who also think the future can been seen inside a crystal ball. Remember how often the world ended over the past century?

It was just a matter of time really, that ring of fire is on the move constantly, plate tectonics, once you know there’s been a hit it’s easy to assume there’ll be another somewhere along a fault line……. :-/

I agree with @Scooby – the saddest thing about the desire to be ‘correct’ about these apparent predictions… Is that they do come true.

It’s a shame that those who claim such intuition aren’t putting it to better use, looking at how to support the outcome, the damage, the loss and changes that come from the terrifying natural events going on.

Just as an addition to this thread, I hope the Mods will permit this link to Shelterbox, whose work is all too much in demand. They are based in Cornwall, where I live, their work is international.
