This thread has probably been done before, but I've never seen one so here goes nothing.
Nostradamus was considered by some to have physic visions. Most others call him a fraud that was simply vague with his predictions. Me? I like to consider him an extremely talented person who simply found a way to predict the future based on past events or maybe even the stars. He studied astrology and other "occult" sciences. The way I see it, if you don't believe in the Nostradamus Effect, you are in denial. Sure, some of Nostradamus' predictions never came true. But does this mean that the ones that did come true are just coincidence? I believe not. Here are some of the most famous predictions Nostradamus made:
1. "From the enslaved populace, songs,
Chants and demands
While princes and lords are held captive in prisons.
These will in the future by headless idiots
Be received as divine prayers" - This quote is a reference to the French Revolution.
2. "In the City of God there will be a great thunder,
Two brothers torn apart by Chaos,
while the fortress endures, the great leader will succumb",
The third big war will begin when the big city is burning" - This quote references 9/11.
3. Out of the deepest part of the west of Europe,
From poor people a young child shall be born,
Who with his tongue shall seduce many people,
His fame shall increase in the Eastern Kingdom.
He shall come to tyrannize the land.
He shall raise up a hatred that had long been dormant.
The child of Germany observes no law.
Cries, and tears, fire, blood, and battle.
A captain of Germany shall come to yield himself by false hope,
So that his revolt shall cause great bloodshed.
Beasts wild with hunger will cross the rivers
The greater part of the battlefield will be against Hister.
Near the Rhine from the Austrian mountains
Will be born a great man of the people, come too late.
A man who will defend Poland and Hungary
And whose fate will never be certain. - This text is a reference to Hitler and World War 2.
So, what are your views on this? I realize there are more predictions, but I feel these are the best. Also, if some of these quotes are wrong, let me know and I'll change them.
