I dislike Marconi. He stole the idea for the Radio from Tesla and got all the glory. Nobody even found out until long after they were both dead.

I would say that at least two of those ideas still have a good chance at happening: (1) eradicating infectious disease; (2) the idea that communication will make war ridiculous. In a certain sense, this second one is correct. War will not be impossible and injustice will always remain, but with the progression of communication and transportation, more people are developing strong international ties. Consider this site, for instance: we interact with hundreds of other nationalities daily on the internet. If the trend continues, every war will become something closer to a civil war.

Severepwner will never get a girlfriend ever. He's a useless, unlikable twat who doesn't even deserve to breath and waste air on this planet. There was a tear in the universe when Severepwner was born, because his existence is a cosmological mistake

Oh come on now, that attitude won't help.
I mean, I can't blame you for that kind of negative thought, because I've struggled with it before, but if you go around saying it you might wind up believing it.

Pokemon is just a fad.

The Y2K one isn't really an incorrect prediction. Saying something is without precedent is not implying anything about the future. It simply is saying nothing like it has happened before. That may or may not be wrong, I don't know, but it doesn't make any assertions about the future.

Related to the Beatles one. Before they were known, a record executive refused to sign them, he said "guitar groups are on their way out."

This is pretty well known, but whatever.

When did OP claim the post was about unknown predictions?

My dad was quite a big businessman throughout the late 80s til about 1997, and he was invited to this seminar to show how the internet was going to work before it really launched.   
He said that this one guy, would do some 						****					 on a computer, then phone a number and say "i'm wanting to access www.funnyjunk.com (it wasn't really funnyjunk, but i forget)", then the page would take 15 minutes to load.    
   
My dad came to the conclusion that "this new internet thing is a lot of 						*****					", which was contradicted by his business partner Davie who told him he had read it was going to be "the next big thing". However, my dad was still not entirely convinced.   
   
>HFW He sees the internet now.

Sounds like the Y2K scare in 1999

In fairness evolution doesn't strictly refute religion, a deity with the power to make universe and had been around since existence could do anything and have time to let it take awhile. After ll God could have just snapped his fingers and killed everybody instead of sending a flood, if there's a God he's clearly got a flair for the dramatic.
User avatar #190 - Cambro (05/10/2013) [-]
There should be no reason Darwin's evolution should threaten the religious. Evolution explains the species and the natural cycles that must be undergone in a shifting biosphere. It does not explain the inception of matter nor how nature could have the intelligence in the first place to allow natural selection to operate. Some may say that evolution cancels out any deity by Ockham's razor, but such a claim ignores any alternative hypothesis (such as a deity creates nature to be self-sustaining). Only extreme empiricists and fools claim evolution defaces God. To many Christians, it only highlights how God truly creates and works.

The one with Darwin doesn't fully belong, because Darwin was goddamn right. There is no good reason people should be offended by the presentation of evidence. Religion, however, doesn't specialize in good reasons or logic.

A guy at Kodak told me around 2001 that digital photography was a fad like Pokemon.The later two are still around, while Kodak went bankrupt and is barely holding together.

The Marconi one made me sad.
The coming of the wireless age will make war impossible, because it will make war ridiculous.

Holy **** there were one thousand nine hundred and fifteen Charlie Chaplins before the famous movie star?!!!

**katsikis rolled a random image posted in comment #3 at Wombats ** i feel like some of these quotes were said because those saying it were rivals of the topic being talked about, like the radio host saying tv is a fad, and the microsoft ceo saying the iphone will have no market share
