In 1987 Herbert Benson, M.D., Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School foretold: “a day will come, through meditation you can set the stage for important mind-and habit-altering brain change.” (Your Maximum Mind, Random House, New York) He gave the reasons: “Over the years you develop ’circuits and channels’ of thought in your brain. These are physical pathways which control the way you think, the way you act, and often the way you feel. Many times, these pathways or habits become so fixed that they turn into what I call “wiring”. In other words, circuits or channels become so deeply ingrained that it seems almost impossible to transform. But there are approximately 100 billion nerve cells in the brain, and each of these communicates with the others through connections called synapses. The total number of possible connections is 25,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 (which means if you make a book with that many number of sheets, the pile of paper would be approximately 16 billion light years high—stretching beyond the limits of known universe). Therefore the brain’s potential for forming new pathways—and thus new habits of thoughts and behavior—is practically unlimited. This means if you resolve to lead a sweet and royal life (or a spiritual life) from this moment—it is possible (unlike the Bible writer who wrote “the good that I wish I do not do, but the bad I do not wish what I do.” )
Now Herbert Benson’s scientific prophecy has come true:
Hence prophecy is not unique to the Bible writers. In fact, many of its prophecies are too general, or too vague, or not fulfilled, or fulfilled in the opposite direction. Because as Jeremiah himself admits many of Bible verses are not inspired.—Jeremiah 7:22; 8:8
Prophecies (made by science or Bible) may or may not find fulfilments, hence cannot be taken as proof of God's backing.
