I have a long-standing interest in predictions and what they reveal,
which would alone would justify my interest, but besides that...

I care because I wish one of my favorite authors to be an
intellectually respectable author, perhaps along the lines of
Chesterton or Buckley or Charles Murray who I also enjoy reading, and
it's disappointing to me to see that it's not a few allusions or plot
twists that I perhaps was simply misinterpreting or being overly
sensitive to.

And also because people here seem to have a hard time accepting it, so
additional data is welcome; witness the previous attempts to explain
it all away, or in this thread the suggestion that maybe he was joking
or trolling!
