The problem with trying to predict the future is that one can only extrapolate from current trends. This fails to take into account revolutionary developments which have often change the direction of cultural development completely. Lots of writers in the 19th century wrote of future socieities, and every one of them was completely wrong about almost everything they envisioned. Typically, they pictured a socieity much like the one in which they lived, with some of the "rough edges" smoothed over, and with technological developments which were extensions of things already existing even then. So, there were stories and novels written over 100 years ago in which people travelled in aircraft to distant cities, except the aircraft were supported by balloons, and propelled by steam engines. Or they had a machine to listen to music, except that it was connected to telegraph lines, instead of operating by radio waves. When the automobile was in its infancy, the idea was to REDUCE pollution (horse manure was a huge problem in large cities), and to be cheaper to operate than a horse. No one forsaw how large numbers of autos would create suburbs far from cities, or how many people would spend hours per day commuting to and from their job. And of course, no one forsaw the very different kind of pollution problems associated with cars. Right now, fundamentalists beliefs are very popular, although not so much JW's but others like Baptist. IF this could be depended on to continue, perhaps a prediction could be made, but it is just as likely that popularity will decline, and those people will be viewed as quaint. Right now, rap and hip-hop music is very popular, and if growth continued, it might replace other forms, however, it won't continue. It will grow until it reaches a saturation point, and then something else wil come along, and rap will seem "not cool anymore". Trying to predict what will happen based on "scripture" is even more problematic. There are ALWAYS events taking place which someone can point to and say "See, it is happening just like predicted, so THIS is what will happen NEXT (or SOON). There was an entire religious movement during the 19th century called "Adventism" when many, many people believed the "second coming of Christ" was right around the corner. This was what gave birth to religions such as Seventh Day Adventists, the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society, and others. One thing which all of these have in common is that, in every single prediction they have made, they have been wrong. Completely and totally wrong.
