- For the past 15 years, virtually every television program
relating to "Doomsday" and psychic prophecy has featured sefl-styled
"futurist" Gordon Michael Scallion. Scallion's terrifying prophecies
of earth-changes and global cataclysms have been aired on such TV shows
as Unsolved Mysteries, Ancient Prophecies, and Sightings, and he's been
one of the most oft-featured guests on the popular late-night radio show,
Coast to Coast AM. The many devotees of his newsletter and media appearances
swear that he is a genuine seer whose warnings about our planet should
not be taken lightly.
- Scallion is scheduled for an interview on Coast to Coast
with George Noory on Monday, September 5. On Scallion's website (www.matrixinstitute.com),
he is giving himself credit for having supposedly predicted the New Orleans
hurricane and flooding. He writes, "If you have my 'Future Map of
North America' you know that New Orleans is shown as being under water.
In Jan ?04 issue of 'Intuitive Flash,' I reported that I had a vision where
I saw New Orleans under water, and in Jan. of this year, I stated that
this year would be dominated by the element water and that storms and high
winds would 'plague Florida, Louisiana?"
- Wow, that sounds like a pretty uncanny prediction on
GMS' part, right? Well, before you jump to that conclusion, consider these
- For the past 15 years, Scallion has been predicting that
the entire landscape of the planet would be torn to pieces, and much of
it flooded with water. In a 1994 interview with David Sunfellow, Scallion
predicted that before 1998, our country would be totally DEVASTATED by
earthquakes and tsunamis, and the U.S. would be forced to re-structure
itself as 13 COLONIES! During this same time period, Japan would be "completely
swallowed" by the ocean; a "pole shift" would occur between
1998 and 2001; Mt. Rainier would explode in an eruption greater than Mt.
St. Helens; a 9 point earthquake would strike Mexico City; 50% of Florida
would be inundated, and a portion of the lost continent of Atlantis would
be discovered off the coast of Florida; water would become "as valuable
as gold" before the turn of the century; and by the year 2000, a "second
sun" would emerge in the sky. (Below my brief commentary, I am including
the entire list of Scallion's predictions from his '94 interview with Sunfellow,
which outlines his astonishingly poor hit ratio.)
- Let's understand this very clearly: For 15 straight years,
this guy has been predicting that virtually HALF THE WORLD will be under
water. Then, one day, a big hurricane hits in the absolute worst possible
location -- a location that anyone could predict was likely to FLOOD on
a logical, scientific basis -- and TA-DAH! -- he claims the tragedy as
a confirmation of his psychic powers.
- If we are going to assess Scallion's intentions in making
these "predictions," let's forget for a moment that his "hit
rate" is lower than Roger Clemens'. He can always use the defense
employed by other pseudo-prophets (Ed Dames, Sean David Morton, et al),
that the "timing" of future events is difficult to place, because...well,
there are many "possible futures," and it's difficult to determine
which one will manifest, and blah, blah, blah...But if you think that Scallion
is an honest psychic whose "timing" is just a little off, consider
- About 5 years ago, I was contacted by an individual who
had been following Scallion's predictions for years. This person claimed
that in 1998, Scallion purchased real estate in Venice, Florida, valued
at $267,500. I was faxed a copy of the property transaction record (which
is in the public domain), and it may be viewed here: http://www.reversespeech.com/imgs/scall1.jpg.
I've attempted to contact Scallion through his website for a comment on
this...and will immediately post any response he chooses to offer.
- Let's go back to Scallion's interview in 1994. He claimed
that..."50% of Florida will be inundated..."
- And today, Scallion writes on his website: "I stated
that this year would be dominated by the element water and that storms
and high winds would 'plague Florida..." (A REALLY uncanny prediction,
considering that Florida has more hurricanes than any other state)...
- Here's a challenge for Coast to Coast AM host George
Noory: Why don't you ask GMS if he still owns that quarter-million dollars
worth of real estate in Florida, and if so, why did he buy it in the first
place, if he thought half the state was going to be under water (which
he predicted in '94)?! Does he have a death wish? Or is he just a very
- Or perhaps he just wanted to be close to Atlantis when
it suddenly popped up from its underwater submersion.
- It's one thing to be a sub-par "psychic" who,
like most of us, can't predict the future. It's quite another to intentionally
exploit the fear of a traumatized public for personal profit. I ask rhetorically,
in which category is Mr. Scallion?
- SCALLIONS PREDICTIONS FROM 1994 INTERVIEW
WITH DAVID SUNFELLOW
- * Scallion has predicted that three large earthquakes,
each one larger than the one that preceded it would strike the LA area.
The third of these great quakes, which Scallion says will measure about
8.3 on the Richter scale (+/- .5), will initiate the breaking up of America.
According to Scallion, the first two of these predicted LA quakes have
already taken place: A 6+ on April 22, 1992 and the 7.5 Landers Earthquake
which took place on June 28, 1992. Scallion is predicting the third one
will occur before December of 1995. When the third earthquake occurs, a
three stage land fracture and break-up of the entire western portion of
America will begin. According to Scallion, the cause of this massive break-up
is a very large magma bubble that is pushing up beneath the United States.
This magma bubble is caused by a build up of ice at the poles. The ice
build-up at the poles is causing an instability in the Earth's rotation
which, in turn, is creating instability in the earth's magma and core.
- * The first land fracture will run along a line from
Eureka, California, to Bakersfield, to Baja. Land on the west side of this
great fracture will begin to break-up and only a few isolated areas will
remain as islands. This great fracture could take place immediately after
the third LA earthquake, or shortly thereafter. This first great fracture
will set in motion a massive migration of people from California, Oregon
and Washington into Arizona, Nevada, Utah, New Mexico, Colorado, and eastern
portions of the country. In earlier predictions, Scallion predicted, incorrectly,
that this first great fracture would take place before May 9, 1993.
- * Before 1998, the second great fracture will occur.
This fracture will run from Newport, Oregon through Nevada down to Phoenix,
Arizona. The land mass to the west of this fracture will again be inundated
and only isolated islands will survive.
- * A few months to three years later, a third fracture
will occur. This time vast sections of Utah, Nevada, Arizona, and Colorado
will be swallowed up by the ocean. Phoenix, now a coastal city, will eventually
emerge as a major seaport city. A very large seaport city will also be
established in the Nebraska region. Denver and Sedona will become coastal
- * While the western portions of the United States are
being broken up, the eastern portions of America will also be undergoing
major changes: Portions of New York will be inundated, Manhattan will lose
approximately 50% of its land, 1/3 or more of Maine's coast will be lost,
most of Rhode Island will become submerged, more than half of Connecticut
will go into the sea, Long Island will completely disappear, 50% of Florida
will be inundated. And as land is eaten up by the ocean, new land will
rise. Scallion predicts a portion of the ancient continent of Atlantis
will rise of the east coast of America, near Florida. Ruins of the great
cities of Atlantis will eventually be discovered in the Azores, the Bahamas,
the Gulf of Mexico, and the Sargasso Sea.
- * As changes occur in the western and eastern portions
of America, the Midwest will also undergo major changes. Chief among these
changes will be the great lakes expanding into one giant inland sea while
the Mississippi river will expand into one gigantic seaway. Scallion attributes
the changes in the Mississippi and Great Lakes regions to melting polar
ice caps. According to him, the poles will melt because of volcanic activity
in the polar regions and shifts in the land mass. The transformations in
the Midwest will also be brought on by continuous storms and repeated flooding.
- * During the same time period, Alaska will also lose
about 25% of its land.
- * Due in part to tsunamis unleashed by the super-mega
California earthquakes, only four of the Hawaiian Islands will be habitable
after the changes--Kauai, Oahu, Maui, Hawaii--and these four will lose
approximately 25% of their land. About 1000 miles to the east of Hawaii,
the ancient continent of Mu, or Lemuria will rise out of the Pacific ocean.
- * Scallion predicts that Japan will be completely swallowed
by the ocean, which, in turn, will unleash more giant tsunamis.
- * Scallion believes the major changes listed above will
be followed by a shift in the Earth's poles, which will take place sometime
between 1998 and 2001. The pole shift will cause ice to cover much of the
land in the Pacific area. It will also alter the entire weather system
of the planet. As the result of these changes, most of the United States
will become temperate, with an average temperature of 75 degrees year round.
Before the major changes mentioned above begin, Scallion believes the following
events will occur as warning signs:
- * Mt. Rainier in Washington state will erupt. Scallion
predicts that Mt. Rainier will explode in a southwesterly direction and
that its eruption will be greater than Mt. St. Helens.
- * At the same time Mt. Rainier erupts, a major earthquake
(in the vicinity of 9 on the Richter scale), will strike Mexico City or
- * A new volcano will be born in the Sierra Nevada near
the Nevada-California border.
- * Water temperatures off the west coast will rise.
- * A hum phenomena will begin to make vast numbers of
people sick with flu-like symptoms in America. The hum phenomena, according
to Scallion, will be caused by tectonic plates rubbing against one another.
This rubbing will generate a sound just below the threshold of human hearing
and will cause nausea, chest pains, possibly even heart-failure in some
people. It will affect the inner ear, thyroid, pituitary, lungs and heart.
Animals will also become increasingly erratic as this phenomena becomes
stronger and more wide spread.
- * If volcanic activity occurs simultaneously on Mount
Vesuvius and Mount Etna in Italy, or Mount Pelee on Martinique, then the
West Coast break up will occur within days.
- * Large solar flares will help trigger the super-mega
- * And finally, an increased activity in the Pacific Ring
of Fire is a sign the major upheavals are preparing to begin. Other Scallion
- * Seven plagues will manifest on the planet in the next
- 1. Metastic Melanoma Cancer; 2. A new virulent TB; 3.
A different strain of the AIDS virus, which can be transmitted through
the air, or even electromagnetically; 4. The failure of the optic system;
5. The failure of the thymus; 6. The failure of the pancreas; 7. A disorder
of the Astral and Etheric bodies, wherein they meld, making the victim
susceptible to interference from the "borderland" beyond death
(which would create psychic disturbances).
- * Weather will become erratic all over the world. Dry
places will become wet and wet places will become dry. There will be extended
droughts, wide-spread flooding, unusually powerful storms and summer and
spring will merge into one season in America.
- * Water will become as valuable as gold in the next five
years (in part because of salt water contamination and changing water tables).
- * There will be a year of darkness, the result of several
volcanoes erupting in the Pacific area.
- * There will be intense electromagnetic disturbances,
causing wide-spread disruption and failure of machines and electronic equipment.
- * According to Scallion, the greatest source of damage
and loss of life will be due to the inundations unleashed by earthquakes,
volcanoes, or other upheavals, rather than the specific events themselves.
- * Five areas will be established in the United States
as children's relocation centers. The purpose of these centers will be
to protect children through the times of change. Hundreds of thousands
of children will be sent to these centers by their parents. These centers
will be located in Colorado, Massachusetts, Idaho, Florida and Arizona.
75% of those who survive the changes by the turn of the century will be
children under the age of 15.
- * Rural communities, located at least a hundred miles
from the new land boundaries Scallion has seen, are the best places to
live. Cities like Phoenix, which are presently located on this new coast,
may not be safe places to be during the coming changes as Scallion is expecting
water to flood perhaps as far as a hundred miles inland before receding
to its new, permanent coastline. He also foresees wide-spread food shortages
and rioting, especially in areas where there are large concentrations of
- * Scallion advises no-one to move or relocate out of
fear. Rather, he encourages people to seek guidance from Spirit and then
stay, or go wherever they are directed.
- * As the result of the catastrophic physical changes
in America, both the American government and American economy will collapse.
- * The United States of America will eventually restructure
itself as thirteen colonies.
- * By the turn of the century a new sun will appear in
the skies. During the day it will appear as a small white light, similar
to the way the moon looks when it is visible during daylight hours. In
the evening, this new star, which will be blue in color, will appear as
a bright light in the Milky Way. It will be approximately 10 times brighter
than the brightest star or planet presently visible.
- * Although not completely ruling out the possibility
that some kind of miracle could alter the major upheavals he is predicting,
Scallion generally believes the time has passed for there to be any major
changes in the events he has outlined. He does, however, still believe
it is possible to make changes in specific areas if enough people band
together and correct the destructive thoughts and actions that are causing
the Earth to react.
