And you still aren't accounting for the very real possibility that any apparent 'fulfillment' might well be done intentionally for the purpose of being seen as fulfilling it.
So the Catholic Church is one big huge troll?
I'm saying that ANY argument you can possibly make to 'prove' that the supposed 'prophecy' is a big huge heaping steaming pile of crap.
If you can't use the prophecy to tell you in advance who the Pope is going to be before he is elected, and if the prophecy can only be understood in retrospect, after the event has already happened, and even then only by making bizarre, strained, labored connections to things that no one would think to connect unless they were desperate to prove a prophecy, then the so called 'prophecy' is useless.
Look at the prophecy of the OT, it is very clear and direct....the prophets of the OT accurately predict the outcome of events which will happen hundreds of years after their deaths, even to the point of NAMING the specific individuals who will be involved. The OT prophets predicted the Babylonian captivity and the return to Israel under Cyrus, indeed, they even name 'Cyrus' as the king who will allow them to return. All this a good 100-200 years before the events occurred.
The OT prophecies are so clear and direct in fact that historians, desperate to discredit the notion that predictive prophecy is possible, have taken to back dating the OT and claiming that is was written hundreds of years after the events it predicts took place. There's no real reason to make that assumption, textually.....they just make it because they refuse to believe that someone could make such accurate dead on predictions so they assume they must be faked.
That's what REAL predictive prophecy is like....
These so called Prophecies of the Popes are nothing like that....the so called 'predictions' are so vague that they can be twisted to mean absolutely anything.....just like the writing of Nostradamus in fact...or the 'predictions' of a modern 'psychic'. like Jean Dixon.
I note you haven't explained yet why the 'predictions' are wrong in that it supports the wrong line of Popes during the Great Western Schism....how do you explain that?
