I find this to be a pretty fascinating topic but the guest just doesn't delve into specificity, which is amazing considering Drosnin is an atheist and a journalist. The only real 'prediction' we get is the possibility of assassination and terror attacks. Gee Michael, ya think?
George didn't butcher the interview, but again he doesn't question the guest on their methodologies. He just accepts it prima facie.
The big gaping hole in the bible code and similar esoterica -- it's easy to go back to a source text (Nostradamus, book of revelation, etc) and after an 'event', find a pattern in the text to prove there was precognitive mumbo jumbo going on.
