MICHEL DE NOSTREDAME - More commonly known by the Latin Nostradamus, he was a 16th century French physician and astrologist.
He came to prominence in 1555 with the publication of a book of prophecies that he had made, titled Les Prophéties. The book contained 942 quatrains (a type of 4-line poem) which was how each of his prophecies were structured.
Amongst other predictions, Nostradamus correctly saw The death of Henry 2nd, The great fire of London, The conquest of Napoleon Bonaparte, The French Revolution, The discoveries of Louis Pasteur, Adolf Hitler’s reign of terror, The atom bomb, The assassination of John F. Kennedy, The Apollo moon landings, The death of Diana, Princess of Wales and The 9/11 attacks.
For someone who lived over 500 years ago, the future knowledge he possessed was either a bunch of pretty good and specific guesses, or maybe he was onto something more.
There are, however, a number of predictions from the French seer, that have not yet taken place. Nostradamus predicts a 27 year Third World War that will start in Europe. A hugely destructive asteroid impact which will cause chaos and destruction across the world and the arrival of Mabus the Antichrist (someone who already walks amongst us after their arrival on earth in 1999), who will reign down great suffering on the world.
If all that terrifies you though, don’t fret just yet. Nostradamus predicted that the final date, the day the world would come to an end, would not be until the year 3797.
So don’t sell all your possessions just yet.
