Controversies

Plagiarism

A Los Angeles Times article reported that Missler and co-author Hal Lindsey had plagiarised a portion of Professor Edwin Yamauchi's 1982 book Foes From the Northern Frontier in their own 1992 book The Magog Factor. After the plagiarism was acknowledged, book shipments to bookstores were discontinued and all of the authors' proceeds donated to a ministry.[1]

Chuck Missler has also been accused of plagiarism of Michael Talbot's 1992 book The Holographic Universe in his 1999 book Cosmic Codes: Messages from the Edge of Eternity, a culmination of research and tidbits Chuck gathered over many years. Missler has also acknowledged this missed attribution of all sources and has since publicly apologised. He said a correction would be inserted in all unsold copies and the book itself and an updated bibliography in subsequent printings. Missler has donated all of the author's proceeds from the book to a ministry.

Here is Chuck Missler talking about the Missing attributions in Cosmic Codes:

With the advances in technology (these days anyone can virtually take any piece of text, enter it online and get back required acknowledgement information), and a reorganisation of K-House's publishing department, Chuck hopes to avoid missed acknowledgements in future publications.

Y2K

Since 2000 a lot of people have said that they cannot trust Chuck because of the "Hype he created" with regards to the Millenium Bug (Y2K bug) and some go as far as to say that Chuck 'invented the entire thing'. If you are unfamiliar with Y2K, here is the Wiki link to information about the problem: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Year_2000_problem One of the things you will notice if you look at any material about Y2K, is that Chuck's name is not in it. One of the common statements when you look online "Chuck predicted Y2K and nothing happened," which, if you look at the above link it lists a number of Y2K related incidents. The point that Koinonia House was trying to make, was one of preparedness, which for those who purchased food, water, generators, etc. Those were all things which could be used up or sold on (Which many people did). The long and the short of it is that globally $400+ Billion was spent in preparation for Jan 1, 2000. You can also see a report by the BBC 15 Years after Y2K
