Firefighter turned Christian con artist Mark Taylor explains how God “confirms” his prophecies and it’s every bit as amusing as you might imagine. He “confirmed” Taylor’s alleged prophecy about Justice Scalia and the justice who would replace him with a train horn during Scalia’s funeral.
“If you go back to Antonin Scalia’s funeral, when they were carrying his body up the steps” Taylor said, “there were two signs that were given by God that [the confirmation of Merrick Garland] was not going to happen. We had about an eight month window there where they could have put another justice in and the entire country was in a full-blown panic at that point and that’s when I came out with the prophecy that the Lord said, ‘No, it will not happen, this is being reserved for Donald Trump.’”
“The two signs that were given,” he continued, “there was a reverence there, it was very quiet and there was a siren in the background at the bottom of the steps. Well, when they got to the top of the steps, the siren fades away and all of a sudden you hear this enormous train horn and what the Lord was saying was, ‘Don’t fear America, help is on the way—the siren—this is being reserved for my anointed, Trump—from the Trump train.”“That’s just the way God speaks to me,” said Taylor. “God can have a sense of humor.”
So I want to know how God “confirmed” the “prophecy” that Trump will get to replace five justices while in office, so when it doesn’t come true we can all agree that God has a sense of humor because he punked you and made you look like a liar in front of the world. The problem with these “signs” is that one can look back in retrospect and pick virtually anything as “confirmation” — a bird singing, a piece of litter on the ground. There is literally nothing you can’t declare to be a sign post hoc. If you want to actually make your case, tell us what the sign is ahead of time. And then when you’re wrong, we get to stone you to death as God commands in Deuteronomy.
