The Absurdity Of
Gordon Michael Scallion

"He who permits himself to tell a lie once, finds it much easier to do it a second and a third time till at length it becomes habitual." --Thomas Jefferson
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 (, 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 facts:
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 this:
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: 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 talented swimmer?
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?
* 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 regions.
* 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 nearby.
* 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 California earthquake.
* And finally, an increased activity in the Pacific Ring of Fire is a sign the major upheavals are preparing to begin. Other Scallion predictions include:
* Seven plagues will manifest on the planet in the next seven years:
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 people.
* 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.
