It's Getting Late

Let me reprint a post from April, 2005:

I'll take that bet

One Muslim scholar claims that analysis of the Koran shows the US will be destroyed by a huge flood from both the Atlantic and Pacific in 2007.

I love when religious people make testable claims. So here's what we've got to do. Before 2007, I want everyone who believes in this prediction to go on record--put your money where your faith is.

If you're right, you're right. Good work. Everyone should go over to your side. But if you're wrong, admit it. No weaseling out. No claiming some normal, annual-type disaster--earthquake, hurricane, drought, even a minor flood--is the same thing. No claiming you misread a number and the date is actually 2017. No claiming Allah changed his mind and decided to be merciful.

No, just admit you were wrong, and you don't understand how things are, and it's time to consider other ideas.
