In the August 1999 issue of Pre-Trib Perspectives I wrote an article entitled "Scary Gary and Y2K." Speaking of the Y2K computer bug, I said the following: "It won’t happen. The Y2K problem is being fixed. Western Civilization will continue down the same road next year that it is on today." Not only did Gary North predict that the Y2K computer glitch would lead to the death of 1.5 billion people, he said this whole ordeal is the judgment of God.
