Does God really talk to Mark Taylor, is he a prophet?

Last October about 1,200 cinemas in the US screened the movie “The Trump Prophecy“. This is a religious propaganda movie in which a supposed prophecy by retired firefighter, Mark Taylor, is promoted. The claim is that he was told by God back in 2011 that Donald Trump would be elected president of the United States because Trump had been divinely chosen for that purpose.

It’s a crap movie, and I don’t express that as my own personal opinion, that’s the official IMDB rating. On IMDB it scores 1.6 out of 10. To get such a low score is amazingly impressive, not many can manage that. Here are some reviews …

… Most of the film is painfully dull, with tediously endless long dialogue sequences only intercut by the occasional unintentionally funny moment. Many characters (actually, practically every single character) announced that they don’t much like Donald Trump. However, the film implies that God opened up all eyes of true Christians to help them see Trump was the worthy candidate, and that God himself stopped those crazy anti-American liberals and the she-demon Hillary Clinton.

… This movie was extremely tedious and boring. I am a Christian, but this movie was total propaganda.

… This review has nothing to do about my political views. In fact, I voted for Trump. With that said, this was THE worst movie I have ever seen. Poorly produced and up until the half way point, the script could have been written on a Post-It note. Lot’s of dead space and very little substantive dialog.

… etc…

So when did Mark Taylor actually start promoting the idea that Trump would win?

Taylor did not publicly promote this idea until well into the 2016 campaign and Trump was already ascending. There is no credible objective evidence to backup his claim that he received this prophecy back in 2011. Until some is available you should also not believe the claim.

Has Mark Taylor promoted any other claims?

Yes lot’s, and most are utterly bizarre. Let take a brief look at some …

In other words, Mark Taylor is a gold plated grade 1 paranoid religious conspiracy nut who has a track record of being consistently and persistently wrong about anything and everything he says. He has never managed to successfully predict anything … ever.

How does “Prophecy” work?

There are multiple strategies that grifters such as Mr Taylor deploy to fool people, for example …

Strategy 1 – Predict something very vague, then claim a hit later. For example, “next year the stock market will go up and down” (as it aways does), or “there will be a political scandal in the next 12 months” (as there always is). Just predict something vague then when something specific happens, alter the original a bit and claim a victory.

Strategy 2 – Toss out lots and lots of predictions. With enough material you will quite randomly get a few hits and nobody will remember the vast bulk of the fails.

Strategy 3 – Make the “prediction” after the fact or when it is quite probable and simply claim it was made prior to the event. For example at the end of 2017 predict a Royal baby will be born in 2018. An easy one because the Royal pregnancy was already known about by the end of 2017.

Bottom Line:

There is no evidence that Mark Taylor has ever successfully predicted anything. Instead there is rather a lot of evidence that he is a paranoid right-wing religious grifter running a con.
