    Nostradamus...

    theres a show about him on the history channel right now, and in my educated opinion, this is a bunch of bs.
    heres a quote from the show
    He prediced the fall of the berlin wall, but he never actually used the work berlin.
    What a bunch of crap

    no... you have it wrong. the exact quote is:

    "he prediced the fall of the berlin wall, but he never actually used the word berlin... or wall... or fall...

    It's a cute story.

    Ya I've heard of him, some of the things he "predicted" are complete crap, he has said stuff like "The flying pigmen" which people who belive in him think that it means fighter pilots because they wear masks that could appear to look like a pig. Personally I think the person translating his writing is making it up as they go along. I think you're right about it being BS.
