Per Wikipedia: “Newton spent a great deal of time trying to discover hidden messages within the Bible. After 1690, Newton wrote a number of religious tracts dealing with the literal interpretation of the Bible. In a manuscript Newton wrote in 1704 he describes his attempts to extract scientific information from the Bible. He estimated that the world would end no earlier than 2060. In predicting this he said "This I mention not to assert when the time of the end shall be, but to put a stop to the rash conjectures of fanciful men who are frequently predicting the time of the end, and by doing so bring the sacred prophesies into discredit as often as their predictions fail.”
In “Saint Paul’s Joke” we have the Malachy prediction, and the Bible’s astrological mathematics (taken from “Genesis of Genesis” ) which bring us to the next Pope – who is the last Pope, and has a name related to Peter. We know that the prophecy states there will be a period of tribulation which will involve the destruction of Rome.
Parenthetically, the Wikipedia article also states: “(Newton also had many other possible dates e.g. 2034)” … which is a date specifically provided in “Saint Paul’s Joke” … of interest is that the calculations of both Newton and “Saint Paul’s Joke” are independently derived using different logic and knowledge.
In science, when two independently derived results converge, one can assume there is a relevance to what they report.
