The Nostradamus Prophecies
The name Nostradamus has created wonder in humans worldwide for centuries. Who was he and how was he able to accurately predict the future? Is Nostradamus accurate?
Nostradamus was a seer who was born in the 1500’s. He created almanacs that detailed his predictions of coming events in the world. He made over 6,000 predictions. The prophecies of Nostradamus foretell of major events, such as the French Revolution and three world wars.
Of course, there is debate as to whether Nostradamus is correct in his predictions. Skeptics think that it is discrediting because he is so vague in his prophecies in terms of actual dates. Others point to situations that have occurred, such as the two World Wars and believe this as evidence that Nostradamus actually predicted them.
How did he do it? Texts indicate that Nostradamus when into a meditative state and had visions of the future. He would supposedly delve into a realm unknown to others and emerge again with his mystical knowledge intact.
If Nostradamus could predict what is forthcoming, then can he also predict the end of the world? As close as can determined, Nostradamus predicted that the end of the world will occur in either the year 3787 or 3797, depending upon different scholarly interpretations.
The list of Nostradamus predictions include:
The Death of Henry the Second
Nostradamus predicted that he would be pierced through the eyes and killed, and he did die in this manner, during a jousting tournament.
The Fire of London
Nostradamus said: The blood of the just will be demanded of London, Burnt by the fire in the year 66. It was in September 1666, that the fire of London began with a singular spark.
World War Two and Hitler
The prophet Nostradamus also published several quatrains about a young man born to poor people who would rise over the masses and take control. This is believed to be Hitler.
The assassination of JFK
Decoding the Nostradamus code continues to occur today in order to determine which predictions by Nostradamus have been accurate. His work is studied to determine which predictions are still forthcoming. The prophecies of Nostradamus are at least highly-coincidental and worthy of consideration.
Nostradamus’ predictions for the future include unparalleled earthquakes (continental shifting), World War Three, extreme climate change (obviously happening) and of course, the ultimate end of the world.
The end of the world as predicted by Nostradamus is most closely deciphered to be caused by nuclear war. The theories of Nostradamus are either rooted in a special brand of mystical logic or just completely ludicrous, depending on your outlook. What is certainly notable is that the writings of Nostradamus have been studied and believed for centuries by millions, and they continue to be today.
The predictions of Nostradamus may or may not be accurate; perhaps a mixture of both. Only the future will truly reveal the future and having hints to it may only cause greater confusion. The perplexities of life are best dealt with through direct experience and intentional shaping.
