>Some guy in the early last century made an earthquake prediction which actually then happened, and so some people in Italy are today taking another prediction of his seriously — that Rome will be leveled by an earthquake today, May 11 2011. (Maybe Jesus needs a landing pad for his forecasted arrival the 21st, to say Hi at the Vatican first)
An online search brings up headlines like “Fear of the Apocalypse”, “Thousands Flee Rome” “Earthquake Prophecy Triggers Panic”, but I have to wonder just how much panic is actually going on there. As of this writing it’s well after 2 PM and the Eternal City hasn’t gone anywhere just yet.
