The Greatest Modern Oracle, A Living Prophet With Uncannily Accurate Predictions Over 50 Years

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


The greatest oracle of modern times is not a person but a process that is uncannily correct.  

The RAND Corporation has developed the most accurate prediction process the world has ever seen. Called the Delphi Process after the Greek Oracle, in its first iteration 50 years ago,  it correctly predicted 42 of 50 scientific developments.  The report also discussed the desirability of a one world government, but gave the chance of it happening as nil.  

RAND Corporation (Research ANd Development) began in 1946 as a research project (Project Rand) backed by a single client, the U.S. Army Air Forces. The project was developed at Douglas Aircraft in Santa Monica, California. In 1948, with Ford Foundation support, RAND became an independent, nonprofit research institution committed to exploring the most complex and consequential problems facing our society

RAND  is a nonprofit global policy think tank first formed to offer research and analysis to the United States armed forces by Douglas Aircraft Company. It is currently financed by the U.S. government and private endowment, corporations including the healthcare industry, universities and private individuals. The organization has long since expanded to working with other governments, private foundations, international organizations, and commercial organizations on a host of non-defense issues. RAND aims for interdisciplinary and quantitative problem solving via translating theoretical concepts from formal economics and the hard sciences into novel applications in other areas; that is, via applied science and operations research. Michael D. Rich is president and chief executive officer of the RAND Corporation.

RAND developed the Delphi method in the 1950s, originally to forecast the impact of technology on warfare. The method entails a group of experts who anonymously reply to questionnaires and subsequently receive feedback in the form of a statistical representation of the ‘group response,’ after which the process repeats itself. The goal is to reduce the range of responses and arrive at something closer to expert consensus. The Delphi Method has been widely adopted and is still in use today.

The Delphi technique was refined at RAND, the Santa Monica, California, “think tank” in the early 1960s by Olaf Helmer, Nicholas Rescher, Norman Dalkey, and others . Its philosophical base was described by Helmer and Rescher (1959). Literally thousands, perhaps tens of thousands, of studies requiring the elicitation and synthesis of expert judgments using this method have been conducted over the past decades since its introduction.

In 1964 the Rand Corporation carried out an experiment to predict the future. The result of that experiment was the  ”REPORT ON A LONG—-RANGE FORECASTING STUDY” by  T. J. Gordon and Olaf Helmer.

Here are the scientific predictions made in that 1964 report

1. Economically useful desalination of sea water (true)

        I agree and so with #6 our weather never turns out as predicted,it gets changed to sunshine when you look out of the window and see it for yourself.

      As of Dec.21,2012, Earth took a new direction. It was quiet and subtle but will alter everything, as we know it, on the planet. The view of TPTB is based on Satanism because that has been the controlling power on the planet. Well, no more. Earth is returning to the intergalactic norm and TPTB are through. We can expect a very rough patch before the new Earth can be established but it is absolutely necessary. A planet based on commerce is not normal or healthy and that is our current Earth. Money is for keeping slaves in line and has no use in a civilized world. The so called “impossible” is about to happen to our world. No more war, poverty, disease and that will only be the first 50 years. Here it comes folks and it is about time.

      Not the Universe is infinity, but for sure the Insanity and the technological absurd useless imbecility as it is today !

      People above the RAND Corporation have access to the Vatican Archives, wherein lies the mysteries of Atlantis, and Solomon, and much more, wherein lies the plan for the planet that spans thousands of years and more. RAND is a thinktank that helps figure out how to best follow the ancient plan.

      There is no fate but what we make for ourselves.
      Most of these ‘predictions’ appeared in sci-fi mags and movies, and entered the thoughts of infant schoolchildren. There is nothing wonderful about the predictions, they are simply logical stepping stones, its way quicker to imagine the next step before it is built, and that is all that this process does.
      Note that it does not predict massive problems with cancer due to SV40 virus and polio vaccines, the rise of China as a the worlds superpower, provoking terrorists, the NWO, the development of Aids, the evolution of bacteria resistant to antibiotics etc etc.
      Is it a coincidence that this project was started by the Air Force at the time of the Roswell incident, was this the reason it was started? Did they want to measure the impact of technology on our evolution?

      Are all these really predictions? Or can We assign a high probability these were PLANS that were formulated and then implemented? Like that last one…

      I predict that if We spread a solution to the tipping point, the control of Humans will dissipate and We will be free. What solution?


      And PLAN:

      And… so… therefore.. what? How does this help us now.


      Rand Corporation is the elite’s think tank, as they are callled. The elite get IRS break to put as much of their income as they and not pay any taxes thereon when funding their think tans. Tax free income funneled into the elites’ think tanks, but the elite benefit from propaganda put out by the think tanks they fund.

      Rand Think Tank says: “The report also discussed the desirability of a one world government, but gave the chance of it happening as nil.” True, the chance is zero but for the intervention of God:

      Revelation 17:13 “These have one mind and shall give their power and strength unto the Beast.”

      The “Beast” is a demonic entity. He is in spirit form among seven kings and is himself the eighth king:

      Revelation 17:11 “And the Beast … he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goes into Hell.” Some translations use the word “perdition” which means eternal damnation.

      The Beast goes into Hell:

      Revelation 19:20 “And the Beast was taken, and with him the false prophet, … These were both cast alive into the lake of fire.”

      Mankind is under one of two rulers – either the Lord Jesus Christ or Satan. In the end times, Satan – through his Beast, demands worship of mankind:

      Matthew 4:9 Satan says to Jesus “… fall down and worship me ….”

      Satan telling God to worship him! And Satan, through his Beast will demand the worship of mankind. The meaning of the number of the Beast, 666 – I postulate being:

      Matthew 22:37 “Love the Lord God with all of your heart, soul and mind.”

      Three aspects of a man: heart, soul and mind.

      Genesis 1:26 On the sixth day God created man Adam and woman Eve (Genesis 3:20, Eve is the mother of all living).

      On the sixth day God created the heart of man
      On the sixty day God created the soul of man
      On the sixth day God created the mind of man

      3 sixes, the meaning of the Beast is the totality of the worship he will demand from mankind. The Beast wants what God asks voluntarily from man, worship of him in totality – heart, soul and mind.

      Mankind between a rock and a hard place? No, just for those who prefer to do evil those evil doers in the time of the Beast got it really bad. So too for those who serve God but for those of who do evil and ain’t really with this Beast religious stuff, the Beast is going to put a crimp in your lifestyle.


      • Realist

        Eve is mother of nothing, you fool. Adam is the Father of humanity; Eve was simply an accomplice, who tagged along. Remember, that everything evil in the world is woman’s fault. So, by claiming that wretched Eve is mother of all things, you’re glorifying evil.

        The Beast that the Bible speaks of is Eve and the female gender, not some supernatural demonic entity. And you’re right that when the time comes, The Beast will indeed be crushed. But not by Jesus, but by Satan.

        In nomine dei nostri satanas Lucifere excelsis.

    • Hawbs

      mr. parrish, i thank you for this article and your other contributions to BIN. could we have some new prophecies from the rand corp? that would be a good story. these have mostly already happened. they were predicted in 1964? we want to know the future. okay?
