The Prophecy is False
A quarter century ago yesterday, a child was born. Now, as the Planet of War spins farther and farther away we find that the prophecies were not correct. The elders told us that the coming of Mars would infuse the boy with untold powers or bring about a conflict between the two inhabited worlds in our star system. Instead, he ate tacos and got a new bike. The prophecy may not have been fulfilled, but the tacos were quite filling. That's something.
