Nostradamus: Encore...

I recently bought a book on Nostradamus' predictions, which was printed in 1990...and all his predictions have been directly translated into english from the famed "quatrains"..

What I like about this book was that the author made no forced attempt to predict and decipher each and every quatrain..some he simply left as "I cannot decipher this quatrain" or "this quatrain does not make any sense"..hence the reader is left to do a little bit of deciphering on his own...

Moreover since this book was printed/published in 1990, it makes no reference(s) to events after that..Hence that left me with an amazing opportunity to try and back track through the last 15 years and do some deciphering/co-relating from the direct translated quatrains on my own..

Obviously the major events in the last 15 years are:

1999 Kosovo War
2001: WTC
2002: Indo-Pak build up (world closest to nuke exchange since cold war)
2003: War in Iraq
2004: Death of Yassr Arafat
2004: tsunami with death toll of over 250000

There may be more events/natural disasters which I've overlooked..ppl please add them.. that I can try and correlate more efficiently..
And oh yeah the author did make note of all the quatrains that he thought were futuristic(i.e. post 1990), sot that'll definitely help...

The closest i've come to a correlation, is a mention about "a disaster hitting the region where the streets wind through hollow mountains, and the disaster is in the form of underground water.."

hollow buildings the author said would be skyscrapers, and he envisioned a terrorist attack on the water systems of a big metropolis..There was also mention of "new world", hence New York??

unfortunately I cannot give you the direct quote ,because the book is not with me as of now, but I will get it back in a week or so..

The quatrains comically depict Gorbachev as the man with stain of red wine (or blood, I forget which one)..i.e. the red blotch on his forehead..

good deduction by the author aye??

Nostradamus’ Poems of Prophecy: Centuries

2.1 The Climax in the Prophecy of Centuries – The Terrifying Month of July 1999

Michel de Nostredame (Nostradamus), a Frenchman, was born in St. Remi, France on December 14, 1503. He was a renowned prophet. In his book of prophecy, Centuries, he predicted of many major events and figures presented worldwide throughout the past several hundred years. These include Napoleon, The Great Revolution in France, the World Wars, the downfall of Communism, the latest shocking Sept.11 terrorist attack in America, etc. Many of these were foretold with astonishing precision. For instance, he exactly described the name of Napoleon and of America . (Please refer to the appendix for his biography, prophecies and verification of major historical events.)

Not to argue or anything, but try interpreting with the following translation instead. I still don't know where it's going, but someone else might....

Let us know what you think!

One possible literal translation might be:

'In the seventh month of 1999
From Heaven will come a great king, [to settle accounts],
To resurrect the king of [or from] Angoumois
And war to reign by chance [or haply] where it once did cease.'

* The translation of the word d'effraieur [of terror] or deffraieur (as in the original text [= 'defraying', 'settling' or even 'buying off']) is crucial to the meaning. In other words, the passage does not necessarily refer to terror at all. For a Frenchman in the sixteenth century, the king from the pays d'Angoumois was François d'Angoulême, king Francis I (ruled, 1515-47), known for his great victories (Marignano, 1515) and defeats (Pavia, 1525). There is no necessary allusion to a modern Genghis Khan.

'In the seventh month of 1999
From Heaven will come a great king, [to settle accounts],

When did GW start his election campaign and/or get the RNC nod?

To resurrect the king of [or from] Angoumois

The Bush legacy, son like father.

And war to reign by chance [or haply] where it once did cease.'

The war on Irag.

Just my .02 cents, but food for thought.

That's really a plausible interpretation ooops! I can't read Nostradamus' mind, but it all certainly seems to fit.

I know that there was a fair amount of speculation about the real intent for junior having plans to go to Iraq before 9/11. Revenge (to settle accounts) was spoken of a great deal, and many thought the first bush had been humiliated/embarrassed by the first Iraq fiasco. Seeing how the current admin sees itself as the authority on all things Christian, I can see how it would be interped as the king originating from Heaven.

I've seen this quatrain many times since 9/11, and it never entered my mind to look at it from your point of view! It's excellent food for thought! Good one!

Your leader. I certainly did not choose to elect him.

The quatrains (like most prophecies) are so vague that you can play pick and choose and make them fit almost anything.

I'd like to point out that he predicted a major war in August of 1999, which didn't come to pass.

His predictions, like those of many others, are remarkably clear and accurate (with few exceptions) for things that he already knew about and remarkably murky and mystical for things in the far future.

You'd actually do better looking at the predictions of science fiction writers. There's some good stuff there, and a lot more detailed and accurate than prophets who spout stuff like "the grey cloud will descend on the orange sun. Twins will arise and call for peace."
