Our trip to the Parowan Prophet began with a letter to the St. George Spectrum. It was set among missives proposing that oil companies bail out Detroit automakers, that county inmates be forced to winter in tents, that lawyers be barred from public office. A rough crowd.This particular letter to the editor in the St. George, Utah, newspaper carried the headline " 'Prophet' shares grim forecast," and it was signed by one Leland Freeborn of Parowan, who wrote that he was known to many as the ParowanProphet.After establishing his bona fides as an international talk radio guest and proprietor of a survivalist website that has "passed more than 100,000 hits," Freeborn wrote...
that you should hear what my opinion about the Obama election is: that
he will not be the next president.
I said on my home page in August
that if he lost to expect to see the 'riots' that 2 Peter 2:13 tells us
about. He didn't lose. But the story is not finished yet. I still think
they may begin the riots before Christmas 2008, as I said."

the moment and rain down nukes on the United States, killing at least
100 million of us.
"Prepare now," Freeborn's letterconcluded. "We are downwind from Las Vegas. I hope you can survive."
It took an hour to reach
the prophet, a high-country drive through stunning red-rock formations,
the color of which matches the politics in this corner of southern
Utah. A freeway billboard, depicting a nuclear mushroom cloud, provided
directions to the prophet's two-story house.
The frontyard seemed a
staging ground for rapid flight -- two or three motor boats, a raft, a
canoe, a recreational vehicle and an old sedan, parked with its engine
The man who answered our
unexpected knock wore a cowboy hat with a big feather stuck in the
band, and a beard suggestive of St. Nick. We asked to see the prophet.
He said we had the right guy.
Freeborn hobbled out the
door on crutches and eased into a wheelchair on the porch. As itturned
out, he wa......

The ability to predict the outcome of an event through a vision or dream, otherwise known as a premonition, is among the most ancient and widespread of human activities.

Anthony North: We"ve all heard of destiny, but what is it? Is it some guiding force within the universe looking after us, or is it a total fantasy? As often happens, ideas on the subject fall into one camp or the other. But maybe most sense lies in the middle ground. If we were to adopt this position, then we"d have to accept that a "force" DOES have an effect upon our lives, but rather than being some omnipotent supernatural influence, it could be grounded in things we have a fair idea about. W...The Four Elements of Tarot
Fortune-tellers, mediums and spiritual healers marched on Downing Street on Friday to protest against new laws they fear will lead to them being "persecuted and prosecuted". Organisers say that replacing the Fraudulent Mediums Act of 1951 with new consumer protection rules will remove key legal protection for "genuine" mediums. They think sceptics might bring malicious prosecutions to force spiritualists to prove in court that they can heal people, see into the future...
