As coronavirus fever (pardon the pun) takes over the globe both figuratively and literally, conspiracy theories are flying across the Internet at a dizzying pace. Fortunately, your friends here at Common Sense Conspiracy are working overtime in quarantine to make sure you hear the newest, greatest theories out there from our trademark common sense perspective.
Sylvia Browne is dead. However, she is a fairly well-known psychic. Like a lot of psychics going back all the way to folks like Nostradamus, she generally predicts things in very abstract terms. She also tends to be wrong a heck of a lot of the time. Occasionally, she nails it, and then the people get excited. Over time, she was right just enough to be famous. Now, one of her predictions in a book she wrote over a decade ago is causing quite a stir on the Internet. We included some videos from YouTube that are going around about this.
Our take: well, you can’t fight the facts. The fact is she did predict this abstractly in one of her books over a decade ago. Can’t fight that. Now, on the same page as this prediction she predicted a lot of other abstract things, that may or may not turn out to be true. That’s the problem with abstract predictions. It’s hard to tell if they are right or not, because there are no details to fact-check.
It’s entertaining. If she’s right, the corona virus is going to disappear as quickly as it showed up. If it doesn’t, I guess we can chalk this up as another one on the wrong side.
