In response to the question about Cayce and 1998:
There are five major claims made in the Cayce readings about
next year. First is that we will begin to perceive the meaning
of the Aquarian Age for the first time. Although the shift
from Piscean to Aquarian ages is gradual rather than precise,
Cayce says 1998 is the time when Aquarian energies come through
clearly. Second is that there will be a major discovery in
Egypt, of Atlantean records buried in a chamber beneath the
Sphinx. Third is that Edgar Cayce himself will be reborn.
Fourth is that the Messiah will "enter." Fifth is that major
earth changes will have commenced by then.
As for the return of Christ, this is described in a variety of
ways, some readings insisting that it will be literally Jesus as he
was at the Last Supper while others talk about a universal
Christ Consciousness manifesting. Regarding the earth changes,
they were supposed to have begun by 1958 and to be well
underway by 1998, so there's likely to be some disillusionment
on that one.
The A.R.E. faces all this not assuming that the readings are
always accurate, but with expectancy and interest to see just
how right or wrong they will turn out to be in this regard.
He's messed up with dated prophecies before, so there's plenty
of justification for doubt. But some of his predictions have
been pretty good.
I said I'd be watching the A.R.E. in 1998 because if there are
no earth changes or Jesus returns, people will be in the mode
of When Prophecy Fails, having to explain to themselves what
went wrong. I see the position of Theosophists in 2000 as
