But that's the thing about the quatrains. Every generation swears they figured it out and it applies to them. Fifty years from now someone will look at those same quatrains and 'know' they figured them out.
I think the only time his writing was true was when he wrote to his son, and even then I think they had a secret method of communicating. Not a code or letter substitution but more like key words that had special meaning to them.
Nostradamus would have been famous even without the quatrains. He was a brilliant physician who actually cured people of the plague. Whether he could see the future or just had a vivid and creative imagination with an eye for the future will probably never be known. I like the idea of the quatrains and the mystery that surrounds them, but I am not convinced of any prophetic ability. Perhaps some day...
