What dire predictions can come from “have to” predictions? Anxiety about public
speaking often involves dire predictions, such as getting booed off the stage. One
question puts this matter into perspective: where is the evidence that this will
occur? Unless you are an arch conservative speaking before an extremely liberal
audience, or vice versa, dire predictions are dire predictions and no more than
that. How valid are fears of failure? Occurring before the fact, failure is a
prediction.

Cayce envisions, however, the physical appearance of the soul who came two
millennia ago as Jesus. No date is given, but the prophecy is found many times in
the Cayce readings. Taken as a group these ten prophetic themes are an
inspiring vision of the purposeful world in which we live. And perhaps in many
ways it is a good thing that the years 1958-1998 have come and gone without
some of the dire predictions having been actualized. Now we have the chance to
step back and ...

We do not doubt that these members believed in their dire predictions. Our
argument, quite simply, is that when the American people hear these frightening
predictions and then observe something different, it is not surprising that they
loathe public debate and "bickering" and consequently evaluate Congress
negatively. 1993 Budget Reconciliation Democrats in Congress are not the only
ones guilty of offering dire predictions. President Clinton's first budget in 1993 is a
perfect ...

Mayan predictions do not end in 2012. As noted in chapter 5, “Predictions for
Katun 13 Ahau (2032-2052),” their most dire predictions for civilization were
reserved for the years 2032-2052 which eerily correspond with NASA estimates
that the asteroid Apophis has a chance of hitting Earth on Friday, April 13, 2037
and the asteroid 2011 AG5 could hit in 2040. Finally, did other ancient
civilizations such as the Greeks and Egyptians also encode this information into
their myths and ...

pointing towards the two components of expected value (or disvalue), probability

could make his concerns more precise by using that approach. For discussion

Over the duration of a debate, and especially when they feel a need to compete
ever more strenuously for support of nonaligned voters, the parties increasingly
rely on dire predictions. Supporters of the status quo argue that current conditions
are not so bad and, more crucially, predict that the proposed policy will produce
serious adverse consequences. Supporters of change cite currently intolerable
conditions that will worsen under the status quo. To maximize the impact of their ...

Climate. Gain. One final point on the science of climate change: I am approached
by many in the media and others who ask, “What if you are wrong to doubt the
dire global warming predictions? Will you be able to live with yourself for
opposing the Kyoto Protocol?” My answer is blunt. The history of the modern
environmental movement is chock full of predictions of doom that never came
true. We have all heard the dire predictions about the threat of overpopulation,
resource scarcity, ...
