Hello, everyone- I've been requested by some of you to create this thread, so here it is. Thanks for all of your interest. Call it WW III, 2012,
Armageddon, or whatever, the world has been building up to something for a very long time- especially for the last century. I'm one of those odd,
old-fashioned eccentrics with a knowledge of history & Old French, & I've studied the 16th century French prophet Nostradamus for quite a few years.
There are no good translations commonly available for his work, so I translated all of the Centuries on my own. I learned long ago that if you want
something done right, do it yourself.
What I am about to relate may surprise some. The prophecies were written in a mixture of Old Provencal, Latin & Greek; the verses in which they are
written, called quatrains, are often laden with anagrams, puns, riddles & very old figures of speech. On top of that, none of the verses are in
chronological order- they are completely jumbled up. Nostradamus lived in fear of the Roman Catholic Inquisition all of his life, so he wasn't about
to try to make things easy for them. He obscured as much of his work as possible.
The Centuries were published by his son Cesar just before his death. In order to translate them, it is important to get a real French copy of the
prophecies as they were originally printed, with all of the old-fashioned typesetting & spelling- all of those things often have clues to the
meanings. While no one knows all of the exact meanings of every one of Nostradamus' prophecies, countless scholars have taken a stab at it. I'm no
exception. Many of the quatrains, such as those about the French Revolution & the Emperor Napoleon, have already come true. The trick is to sift out
the verses that have not yet happened.
Nostradamus predicted three world wars. Throughout his prophecies he sprinkled astronomical dates & certain events to look for, which are the key to
assembling the right events into a correct timeline.
After the distress of dictatorial rule
Two enemies shall be defeated
The North African fleet & Eastern Europe shall rise
By sea & land shall horrific deeds be done.
Tears, blood & bullets by gangs in Dalmatia (Yugoslavia)
War engaged, disease in Balennes (near the Italian border)
A great scream shall come out of all of Yugoslavia
Then a monster shall be born by & within Ravenna
When the eclipse of the moons shall be near
Of one for the other, no distant greatness
Cold & drought, even along the frontiers
Even where the oracle had first begun
Within the outerlands of Persia, the Arabs & Armenia
Two great armies shall assemble three times
They shall be established close by Araxum's Border
What was once Suleyman's empire shall fall to the ground
Within the region opposite to Iraq
There shall be a great outpouring of blood
So that land, sea & air shall be iniquitous before Heaven
Sects, hunger, reigns, diseases, confusion
Raining starvation & war in Persia (Iran) without cease
Its monarch shall be betrayed by too much faith
Near the end, in France begins
An omen in secret- a star shall land
Because ATS goes out to an international audience, I must make something extremely clear: I don't want anything bad to happen to ANYONE. Nostradamus
wrote the prophecies in the hopes that the people of the future would find a way to prevent these things from happening! I don't want any more wars,
& the vast majority of the world feels the same way too.
I've included the prophecies above because they have either just happened or are imminent. I've known that these events were coming for fourteen
years, praying that they wouldn't occur the whole while. Now that so many of them have, I'm showing what they lead up to.
5:48 & 2:32- wars have ravaged Eastern Europe & are presently going on in Libya, North Africa. At Ravenna, Italy, there is an air base that was used
by the USA to attack Eastern Europe.
3:4- this verse describes Azerbaijan, the Land of Fire, where the prophet Zoroaster first began having visions three millennia ago. It goes along with
3:31, which tells of WW III beginning along the borders of Azerbaijan, Iraq, Armenia & Iran. The first two world wars saw a lot of fighting in this
very same place; during WW I Suleyman's empire (the Ottoman Empire) fell. Nostradamus is telling us a world war will happen again.
1:55 & 1:70- Iran will be invaded. With all of the saber rattling going on right now between Iran & Israel, it takes little imagination these days to
see what might happen if Nostradamus is correct.
I welcome your comments & hope we can all have a good discussion. I don't want trolls sharpening their knives & causing problems. I have one thing to
say to them- passez outre, s'il vous plait! (Move on, please). If there are people who don't like this subject, please find something else that
Sources- the best ones to start with are these two books: "The Final Prophecies of Nostradamus", by Erika Cheetham, & "Eschatus", by Bruce
Pennington. There are many others out there, but I don't trust the scholarship of most of them.
