Professional Prophets little tricks
The experts in Extraterrestrial Visitors need at least two things: one is the clear understanding of amphibology and the other is believers’ forgetfulness.
The less known fallacy of amphibology implies the utilization of statements that can be interpreted in many ways.
Suppose you can predict the results of a presidential election. You can perhaps tell your amazed followers that a man who talks about change will win the election. Also you can say that this man smiles and points frequently to the audience.
The prophet will always be right in his/her prediction, since every candidate talks about change and points an imaginary friend with his finger while he smiles.
Believers’ forgetfulness is nothing but self-delusion. The true believer wants to believe. Needs someone to tell her/him what is right and what’s wrong. Needs somebody to tell him what the future will bring.
So, he must have a bad memory, and forget previous predictions. If nothing happens in 2013, and predictions remain unfulfilled, the prophet will be talking and writing about what 2014 will bring to us: Ascension, Redemption, Quantum Jumps, Arrival of the Saviors, a guide from the stars, and some catastrophic events.
These are the same things he predicted for 2013. If he used meaningless words, the believers will again follow the Cosmic Prophets’ teachings. They will forget and renew their faith.
In this way, Exopoliticians, Exoexperts, Exobiologists and Cosmic Alchemists will keep the audience and clients.
