Nostradamus wrote prediction abouts important, and often disastrous, events from his time to the end of the world. These prophecies were grouped into centuries - not centuries in terms of years but in terms of there being one hundred cryptic and obscure quatrains in each century. Many people have interpreted the prophecies seeing in them some connection with certain events that have taken place since Nostradamus' time including the French Revolution, the rise of Hitler, the assassination of John F. Kennedy, and the destruction of the Twin Towers in New York. If we were to use his work as a guide we could have prevented or changed history and could have avoided the Twin Towers distruction, the assasination of John F. Kennedy and the current predictions of the future.

Yes, I see what you are saying, but what work from Nostradamus clearly shows exactly what we are living in right now and what to be leery of in order to prevent it?

We didn't think to look at his work until after the events, and then we found only similarities to what happened. Plus his work is very generalized and can be grouped into any disastrous event.

Though I do believe he was a visionary prophet and saw something that might have been the future, it's hard to say what future his prophecies where about.

Why would you want to?

From where I am standing everything that has thus far befallen humanity has taught us many lessons. Those lessons have educated an entire species. Why would you want, if anything, our education to stop?

Any event that takes place is another moment pushing us towards asking more questions, and maybe eventually helping us to our realization.

If I could predict future outcomes, before I even thought about "stopping them" I would want to know what we would be learning from them.

Yes that is true. we ourselves cant predict the future but he did. he has shown us what is to become of the future. i watched a movie called the hapening. and then i thought of Nostradamus, if we had a very very reliable source that could desifer his work to the T then we could stop, or prevent or even better change what could happen in the future. but if we do that then we may never know what the future will bring. some changes need to be made but its a matter of pick and choose. like the thought of presidents, did or did we not make the right choice with obama. we wont know till its to late.

I like how everyone holds high regard to Nostradamus' predictions.
They could be interpreted in different ways and with different dates. he was pretty much taking shots in the dark with most of the Quatrains he wrote.

Where in the world did you get that idea?

It's fantasy to think that we or anyone else has the power to alter destiny. That's hubris and wishful thinking.

Yeah, but Nostradamus himself said that the prophecies go all the way to the year 3797 or something like that. Not all of them could have been used up already, and if he was describing and predicting an "end times," don't you think they'd be closer to that year and not 1700 years before it was supposed to happen?

we'll get there eventually.

i think you fail to understand there are scholars who study what has been written by Nostradamus and they haven't successfully predicted anything. of course its easier to see how it may apply to events that have already happened than guess which quatrain will happen when and in what way.

Ive actually done pretty extensive research over Nostradamus, and have written quite a few papers on him. And to be honest, the man was probably just a complete con-artist trying to make a good buck, hoping some of his predictions would become reality during his lifetime. The man was a logical genius, and understood the principles of how the human mind interprets situations. If he was just clear enough to make a subject debatable, but just clear enough that most of his predictions hold water, then he was already labeled a prophet, no matter what happened. Because to be honest, you cant verify or deny any of his claims, because he very rarely mentions a certain event by name, but by an action. Some say 'Hister' of course referring to Hitler, was instant proof that he was legit, but in honesty 'Hister' was nothing more than an alternate name for the Danube river.

But lets say for a second, that he was truly a time reader, and could see in the future of the space-time continuum. It would make sense that he would not want to predict certain events by their name. Because obviously the man would have to be referring to a higher and great power, and he could not upset the balance of space and time by(as it has already happened), if you will, presenting a winning lottery ticket to the entire world, years in advance. The world is not meant to be a place of flowers and peace, that is all a myth that not once single person in the world can comprehend. The world is a place of learning and exploration, and to know and learn you must make mistakes.

So either way, Nostradamus will probably never be verified as a prophet or a con-artist. But the fact that we know his name 500 years in the future, proves that he got his worth...no matter what he really was.
