Very true.  
One of my favorite examples is the collection of prophecies of Mother  
Shipton, a woman who lived in early 16th century England I believe.  The  first half 
seem to be right on the money, aircraft, submarines, even clothing,  but then 
it gets to the world coming to an end.  But consider this, if she  really did 
see the future and she saw and earthquake (which she would never have  
experienced) or a forest fire (which would seem to her like the whole world  
burning) or any number of natural disasters, her limited perspective would have  her 
think it was the end of time.  But to us those things are five minutes  on the 
evening news.
And the dugpas have nothing to do with them, no matter what nonsense may  end 
up on this list.
