Take the case of psychic Sylvia Browne who falsely predicted that Amanda Berry was deceased, and even boldly told her mother the dreadful news on the
|Louwanna Miller and her daughter Amanda Berry|
Personally, I always thought that if Sylvia Browne was a great psychic, she could have warned Montel about his show cancellation, and though I wasn't a huge fan of his program (often turning it off once Browne began her spiel), I do recall her saying that Sarah Jessica Parker and hubby Matthew Broderick would get divorced. The couple has been married since 1997. It wasn't just a blanket prediction either, she had specified the divorce would happen "that year."
The news that Amanda Berry's mother went to her grave in 2006, after being told her daughter was no longer alive brings a sad aspect to an already tragic tale. If there is anything to be learned from the story; however, it is that parents of missing children should never give up hope.
They should also stay away from gloom and doom psychics.
You can view Sylvia Browne's predictions here. They include numerous false predictions such as Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt breaking up, but also contain predictions for the next 100 years. One interesting prediction is that in the year 2010, aliens will reveal themselves to humanity.
Here is the quote, "Aliens will begin to show themselves in the year 2010, they will not harm us, they simply want to see what we are doing to this planet. They will teach us how to use anti-gravity devices again, such as they did for the pyramids."
"For more than 50 years as a spiritual psychic and guide, when called upon to either help authorities with missing person cases or to help families with questions about their loved ones, I have been more right than wrong. If ever there was a time to be grateful and relieved for being mistaken, this is that time. Only God is right all the time. My heart goes out to Amanda Berry, her family, the other victims and their families. I wish you a peaceful recovery." - Sylvia Browne
Sherry Cole, Amanda Berry's cousin reached out to Sylvia this morning to let her know that she supports her, loves her, knows Sylvia never claims to be 100% right, but wanted to let her know that she was accurate in her description of the perpetrators at the time.
"Our family in no way blames Sylvia. This doesn't change anything. We still love her and believe in her." Sherry Cole."
