And don't give me the " we're all human beings " reply, it's been done a million times already in this thread, and I've already replied to each one of them...
I have already explained it. This is becoming circular.

Neither the present nor the future is completely knowable: Schroedinger's Cat. I am inclined to go with a multiverse theory: All possible futures exist, but we cannot necessarily know which one we are going to experience. If you don't understand how this can be, don't fret; nobody else does either.

Yes Tarot can accurately foretell the future! It's done so 2 years in advance too. But the future isn't always set in stone so futures can change.

The better question is ; why does it seem to us that sometimes tarot CAN predict the future?

Then you might get somewhere with it ... but a lot of people here dont want to think that way about it so .... <shrug>
OK, so why does it seem to us that sometimes it does predict the future ? I' m open to all theories, I havo no interest in clinging to the idea that tarot Always has to predict the future, if it's not true...

No, I didn't, though I have a feeling it would be a bit like asking a dumb person why he can't talk...

I see it in the same way I see a weather report. The weatherman tells of trends in the weather. He tells people if it will be cloudy, if there is a chance of rain, if it'll be sunny, etc. He can't tell me whether I'll be hot or cold, or if I'll be trapped under the rain. The only thing I can do is to identify those trends (i.e., look out the window at the sky) and try to prepare myself as best I can. Usually I do well, and take a sweater when it's chilly, but sometimes I fall flat on my face and get soaking wet.

Even if I invoke all my powers of analyzing the cards according to esoteric means, even if I can accurately trace the cause and effect of a situation, there are always things beyond my control. As it should be.

(I remember writing something similar at one time, have I already posted in this thread and forgot? Am I becoming senile?)

I suppose that's a reasonable way of looking at it....and I'll have to adjust to that new way of thinking...

PS If you've written this before in this thread, I can't remember...that makes 2 of us becoming senile, I guess....
