Nostradamus!!!!!!

"Beasts ferocious from hunger will swim across rivers:
The greater part of the region will be against the Hister,
The great one will cause it to be dragged in an iron cage,
When the German child will observe nothing."

So does Hister actually refer to Hitler? An instance of Nostradamus changing letters around? Is this a reference to Germany during WWII?- I got this from some crazy site I found on google


thats the biggest load of crap ever. My favorite part is the german child seeing nothing. If he could predict everything than why didn't he see the death of his wife and two kids?

I almost forgot, the world is going to end 2012 so you should start preparing asap. lol.

Well according to my calculations two big birds will fly into two beautifull buildings(Nostradamous supposidly wrote that in on of his books and said it would happen on the day of the year equivalent to the number you dial when in distress) approximatly a couple years ago. See I can prodict things to, it's not hard.

My prediction is as follows;

The mexican shal be swarmet by the black pidon
therfore ......

He often replaced letters in words. He couldnt predict everything, he didnt even do his prediction stuff while his wife and kid's were alive, you should have read more. In his early years he was just a doctor who healed plague victims and did a very good job at it because he was one of the only people who thought purified water and fresh air were better ideas that cutting some one's head open to help them heal from the plague. He was very sucessful, but the sad thing is his wife and kids died from a "plague like" disease. He then became wanted by the inquisition because of the few seeings he had recieved and mainly because he told his friend who was sculpting a statue of the virgin mary that it looked like "the devil." He simply meant it looked terible, but some one overheard and told the inquisiters that he said the word devil and back then it wasnt an overlooked thing for some one to say something like that.. so he went into hiding for many years and many years later started making his predictions, much much later than his family died. All of his precitions are really neat, but I wouldnt say you could tottally prove them right or wrong. But they sure are fun. You left out the second part....

He will transfer into greater Germany
Brabant and Flanders, Ghent, Bruge, and Boulogne.
The truce, a sham, the great duke of Armenia
Will attack Vienna and Cologne.

I knew about some of that. But I was just joking around with what I put.

I remember reading Nostradamus back in the eighties and he said the world was going to end in July 1999.

I'm still waiting.

Edit: I just read that Snopes thing and it mentions July 1999 as well!

I think most of Nostradamus' writings were predicting the rise, fall, and second coming of Tupac Shakur. History will bear me out.

If you've already formulated an opinion and derived an answer, why did you bother asking?

That's just Psych 101, Stacey. No one ever asks until after they've made up their mind!

Nutsodumass can be interpreted to mean just about anything. It's all nonsense.

Nostradamus is a load of crap. It can be twisted around to mean whatever you want it to mean after the fact. If their great predictions why is it nothing ever comes up about it until after whatever he allegedly prophesized has occured? Why didn't some of these Nostrodamus fans step up before September 11 and warn us all? It's total bull, don't waste your time with it.

Why is it that people proclaim that Nostradamus predicted events after they happen but nobody has the foresight to forewarn people of future disasters based on his writings? Do I smell bunk!

I think the 2012 is from the Myan calendar prediction for the ending of the 5th world or something like that. So you know this one is real
