The Nostradamus websites are having a field day. Bloggers have discovered uncanny parallels between the lines of a quatrain and Barack Obama. They have interpreted the verses, rife with political symbolism, as being a remarkably accurate description of the Democratic contender.

Born of obscure and dark family,


Of white and black of the two intermixed.


The dark one biding his time,


Before the Empire changes.

"Born of [an] obscure... family" means that he did not come from a prominent or privileged blood line. Obama most definitely does not have a well-connected political lineage; his humble beginnings are well-documented in his biographies. The word "obscure" also has the additional connotation of "not clearly understood," and questions have surfaced in certain quarters concerning his origins.

"Of white and black of the two intermixed." Obama had a white mother and a black father.

"The dark one." Despite his racial dichotomy, his appearance is darker, rather than lighter.

"Biding his time." Nostradamus loved to insert puns into his writing. This particular one is taken to be a play on the name "Biden," as in Senator Joseph Biden, Obama's chosen running mate. Obviously, Nostradamus did not pen his quatrains in English, but his adherents point out that the familiar phrase can be translated in no other words, and has been done that way for centuries. They take it as further evidence that the same hand of Divine Providence that allowed his prophetic visions to reach across time provided this quatrain for our day and age.

"Before the Empire changes." It is no state secret that George W. Bush is often referred to as the "Imperial President," an allusion to his Napoleonic nation-building, as well as for co-opting the Constitution and acting as unitary executive. And of course, Obama is running on a platform of change.

Just exactly how the Empire will change remains to be seen.

Isn't he Dick Cheney's ninth cousin?

If he is, then he has a bloodline connection.

Don't forget that Bide is TM 34, and Biden has served 34 years in the Senate.

Coincidences really are a strange thing.

He will be born of the gulf and unmeasured city,
Born of obscure and dark family:
He who the revered power of the great King
Will want to destroy through Rouen and Evreux.



Why dosen't this look anything like your quatrain? Except the second line.

10
In a short time the temples with colors
Of white and black of the two intermixed:
Red and yellow ones will carry off theirs from them,
Blood, land, plague, famine, fire extinguished by water.

Same Here? What gives?

Bogosity!

And you lifted this revelation from another website, without checking, shame on you!

Do you know what is really funny? How that a so called prophet can say someone in the future with no specific date attached and no name just word play, will be the cause of tragedies like war, famine, pestilence, and destruction and people just attribute it to some guy during their time. People really eat this stuff up.

That sounds way to literal to be a real Nostradmus prediction...

Agreed. It is posts like this that give Nostradamus a bad name. (Assuming of course that Nostradamus ever had a good name.
)

Anyone wanting to research Nostradamus -- here is a link to all of his quatrains, and a search engine, in English:

www.nostradamus.org...

When talking about Nostradamus, there is plenty of room for hoaxing.
