Nostradamus has predicted the death of a major political figure this year and a particulary disturbing aftermath of it. What is your take on this?

"Sera laisse feu vif, mort cache
Dedans les globes horrible espouvantable
De nuict a classe cite en poudre lasche
La cite a feu, l'ennemy favorable"


"Living fire will be unleashed, death will be hidden
Inside frightful, terrible globes
By night the fleet will grind the city into powder
The city on fire the enemy's ascendant."

So far all his predictions have come true, so there is no saying that this one can come true as well. Btw, according to Nostradamus the world is going to end in the year 7074.

"When we to be begun
We did begin to be undone"

Where does it say in that quatrain that a major political figure will die and that it will happen in 2008?

Just wondering who says all his predictions have come true? Ho ho. Maybe the one about him being more popular after his death than during his life. Most everything else is left to interpretation.

Well I don't believe in it, I'm a scientist. I just wanted your take on it seeing that this forum is a hangout for conspiracy theorists. And it seemed pretty interesting that he predicted an aftermath without predicting the assassination itself. However, if any of the Nostradamus believers can re-interpret this it would be nice.

Nostadamus predictions, pictures were so vague and scribbled who could even tell if he were right or wrong.

It's from Quatrain 5/8 which according to some interpreters refers to the year 2008. I have no clue about this. I don't believe in predictions unless the prediction involves the disproving of the Theory of Relativity which is going to happen very soon.

I don't believe Nosterdamus was referring to any political leader with that Quatrain. It mentions nothing of any political leader.

However, he does mention an assassination of the current Pope (not sure what year):

(Centurie VIII, Quatrain 46)

During the period that the Antichrist begins to flex his power, the
current pope will be assassinated when he goes on a trip away
from the Vatican. The two cardinals nearest to the pope will
realize the danger to their church after the death, and they will
close themselves up in the Vatican to try to protect themselves.

He also mentions that assassinations of world leaders will become common in the "time of troubles":

During the time of troubles the assassination of world leaders
will become extremely common, so much that the population
will not even keep track of who is the current leader, thinking it a
futile exercise because they are assassinated so frequently. With
the warfare going on, a great danger will exist to anyone who has
ambitions for leadership, except for the Antichrist, who will be
actually orchestrating most of the assassinations himself.

Hi, Just need to point out that Century VIII, Quatrain 46 is not what you posted. Below I have posted, the original French and the literal english translation.

Century VIII Quatrain 46

Pol mensolée mourra trois lieuës du rosne,
Fuis les deux prochains tarasc destrois :
Car mars fera le plus horrible trosne,
De coq & d'Aigle de France freres trois.

Paul the celibate will die three leagues from Rome,
the two nearest flee the oppressed monster.
When Mars will take up his horrible throne,
the Cock and the Eagle, France and the three brothers.

I got my quatrains from a translation of the 1555 version. Another point is why does your "quoted" quatrains have more than 4 lines, they are called quatrains for a reason. Another point is why have you not posted the original french text like timilluani did with the Century V Quatrain 8, which can be found in the 1555 version as was posted by timilluani.

I have just had a look into where you got the supposed quatrains from. I can say that you got them from The Nostradamus Code: World War III 2006-2012 by Michael Rathford. I have been able to explain that the interpretations in this book have no relevance to the original writings of Michel de Nostradame in this thread listed below;

Also the fact that the original online source was removed is proof and an online search reveals that you read it on David Ickes websites forum. This is illustrated by the link below;

Peace all
