Nostradamus would rank as a near 100% hoax. Why people believe in his extremely vague "prophecies" is beyond me.

Plus there's this:

1568 Benoist Rigaud Edition of Nostradamus
Is it real or an early forgery?

1568 Benoist Rigaud Edition - Is it Authentic?

The famous 1568 Benoist Rigaud Edition of Nostradamus is one of the early editions of Nostradamus analyzed in "1566 Edition Princeps - The Authorized Prophecies of Nostradamus". It is available at 1eBooks

The author of that work is the founder and current chairman of Authentigraph. He is an expert in authenticating printed material.

He has authored over 30 books himself and several deal with authenticating printed collectibles.

The famous 1568 Benoist Rigaud Edition of Nostradamus is to put it simply a FAKE! The reasons are numerous.

There are many known examples of pre-1568 Editions of other works by Benoist Rigaud, and they all have a consistant similarity in the title page that any experienced authenticator would notice almost instantly.

In other pre-1568 Benoist Rigaud Editions the name of the printer Benoist Rigaud is always a mixture of capital and lower case letters.

The 1568 forgery uses all capital letters for the name Benoist Rigaud (BENOIST RIGAVD).

Other pre-1568 Benoist Rigaud Editions used Old French Garamond Capital Letters for LYON. The Y in the 1568 FAKE is not Garamond type.

Other pre-1568 Benoist Rigaud Editions used very detailed woodcuts, the woodcut in the 1568 FAKE is primitive to put it mildly.

An analysis of the text in the 1568 Benoist Rigaud Edition contains many obvious mistakes that point to an early forgery as well. Punctuation and spelling in earlier Nostradamus editions has many obvious differences.

It is sad to say, but the famous 1568 Benoist Rigaud Edition of Nostradamus that most modern work connected to Nostradamus is based upon is a FAKE!

I do too...But I think that the list means that 78% of psychics are charlatans. I would tend to agree due to this reason:
If a psychic really has any decent amount of power & accuracy, then why would they need to charge money to make a living at it? If they were *truly* psychic, then they could merely predict & win the lottery & be financially set for life...They would have no *need* to charge other people for using it. So it stands to reason...If you have to pay a "psychic" to predict your fortune, then they're very *unlikely* to be "psychic" at all.

Yes psychics that charge ask certain questions to make generalizations that are mmost definetly true using psychology. But true psychics are people who get random thoughts, visualizations and pictures and cannot always predict things.

it's interesting, and seeing that it's based on public opinion, it's even more interesting.
