From the pages of the Old Testament to today, explore stories of prophecy with leading experts, including authors Eva Shaw (Eve of Destruction) and James Randi (Flim Flam).
Is it possible for people to see into the future? Are those who appear to do so touched by God, lucky guesses or coincidental statements justified by people desperate to believe?
THE UNEXPLAINED casts a sharp eye on the history and practice of prophecy. Examine four cases that believers say prove that people can foretell the future--from the airlift of Ethiopian Jews in 1991 that some biblical scholars say was predicted in the Old Testament, to the astonishing visions of Hopi Indian Shamans. In extensive interviews, experts on both sides of the issue offer their opinions. Hear from John Hogue, author of the influentialThe Millenium Book of Prophecy, and noted skeptic and debunker James Randi, author of Flim Flam. See clips from a speech where Martin Luther King seems to predict his own death and trace how prophets and prophecy have been viewed through the ages.
