World's Greatest Mysteries Biblical Prophets: Amazing Accuracy Or Coincidental Occurrences?
Controversy. Conspiracy. Confusion. History is fraught with events -- from local to global -- that have never been satisfactorily explained. What caused the dinosaurs to perish?

This television program objectively assesses ancient prophesies and presents how frequently their words have rung true with amazing accuracy. How is this possible?
