I’d like to talk about something that interest me a lot, if you wouldn’t mind listening to me for a second. I’m not sure if you readers know about this, but there was a man called Nostradamus who lived in the 16th century. He was a prophet, and was able to, in some peoples’ points of view, predict the future. Some people today do not believe in his predictions at all. Many think that what he wrote was interpreted in so many different ways that it was not until afterward that others deemed him worthy of predicting certain events.
Personally, I have decided that there is quite a bit of truth in Nostradamus’s predictions. I suppose I am the type of person who believes in this sort of stuff easily, but I think that there is enough evidence to prove that what he said was true. While some say that his predictions are just coincidences, I feel that there are too many predictions and at too exact a time that it could just be mere ‘chance’. How would one explain the fact that he has made over at least twenty- five correct predictions, often with accurate explanations, while including correct years, dates, and (on a few occasions), times?
Nostradamus also included detailed drawings along with some of these predictions. When he predicted 9/11, he drew a depiction of two towers next to one another. These towers were of an equal width and height. In the same image, an object (many believe it resembles a plane) flew in their direction. At the top, he labeled his drawing “The New City”. Ring a bell, anyone? New York!
Some people go as far as to say that Nostradamus predicted the Kennedy shootings, the rise of the Nazi’s (with Hitler as their leader), World War I and II, and the French Revolution. Many believe that he has also predicted much more, but these are just some of the ideas that he is most well known for.
The main thing I wanted to write about was Nostradamus’s prediction for the upcoming presidential elections in November. Some think that he clearly stated that Obama will win, (something that seems more likely because Hilary is now out of the race), and he has also said less than pleasant things about what will happen once Obama actually becomes president. Apparently, Obama will come into contact with an anti-Christ, somehow plunging us all into war. If this is going to happen, I am not looking forward to it.
Lastly, one thing that I almost live in fear of (sad, I know), is that fact that Nostradamus predicted that the world will end in 2012. It’s supposed to end in around December, if I remember correctly. For this particular prophesy, it isn’t just Nostradamus who foresees this as happening- in fact, all of the Mayan and Aztec calendars end in this year too. It is somewhat frightening, to say the least.
Well, I sure hope I didn’t scare you too much. If you were interested in this, though, go ahead and research it! You will find many sites that are doubting Nostradamus, but there are also some that believe in what he has to say.
P.S. I wrote this exact post last year and am adding to it now. Since then, I have received many comments and remarks both about it and about world issues. While I think it’s great that people are taking an interest in important issues and have found somewhere to discuss them, I have been completely appalled by the racial comments (and rude comments) that I have seen. If you don’t agree with this post, that is fine and I respect that. But I ask you to please stop the racial comments because they are unnecessary and distasteful.
Thank you very much.
