Koran: The sky is falling.

The Jerusalem Post reports that a self-proclaimed expert has found the Koran to predict that the US only has a couple years left:
A thorough analysis of the Koran reveals that the US will cease to exist in the year 2007, according to research published by Palestinian scholar Ziad Silwadi.

The study, which has caught the attention of millions of Muslims worldwide, is based on in-depth interpretations of various verses in the Koran. It predicts that the US will be hit by a tsunami larger than that which recently struck southeast Asia.

"The tsunami waves are a minor rehearsal in comparison with what awaits the US in 2007," the researcher concluded in his study. "The Holy Koran warns against the Omnipotent Allah's force. A great sin will cause a huge flood in the Atlantic and Pacific oceans."

Silwadi, who is from the village of Silwad near Ramallah – the home of Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal – is not a world-renowned scholar. He said he decided to publish the findings of his research "out of a sense of responsibility because what is about to happen is extremely shocking and frightening."
In the meantime, does the Koran say anything useful? Say, Powerball numbers and Nick & Jessica's chances of marriage survival? Not only would I like to spend my last two years in outrageous infidel luxury, I need to know whether I'll have a chance with Jessica or if I should give Jaime Pressley a buzz back.
