    Michel de Nostredame (14 or 21 December 1503 – 2 July 1566), usually Latinized as Nostradamus....

    Why is that so many people, put so much weight behind his prophecies, when nothing has ever been done before things have happened, they've always been oh so smart afterwards, like this with Hitler...
    Saying; this is of course what he meant....by writing this..



    Ok, I can't sleep, so sue me! :lol:

    Looks like Jan's local pub must be closed for renovation. What with this and the other 'Are we alone' thread, he's gone all serious on us (yeah, right) !

    Depends on what the prophecy is for Jan, and if people pay attention and try and change circumstances to prevent it occurring.
    Take St. Malachy's prediction re the 112th (current) pope. Though there were 2 Peter's in the running now, there was no way the vatican was going to allow a 'Peter the Roman' in the big chair as 112th pope if that was the signal for the destruction of Rome and beginning of the apocalypse!
    That dosen't make St. Malachy mad for the prediction...

    Myself, I used to regularly have premonitions (still do now and again), so don't scoff at anyone who has or has had them. I've been to able to use mine for good, and warn others involved if it was something bad. I figure that was the reason for my receiving those ones.
    Thankfully most are just sort of personal indicators of future situations and places I'll be in, depending on what course of action I or others take. (Saw the stages of collapse of the last 2 companies I worked for years before the events for example)

    Another point: sometimes people take the written premonitions too literally, or meanings get lost in the translation. Many are 'symbolic'(including many of my own) and though they may sound ridiculous to read, are clear as a bell to those familiar with the meanings.
    A good example of this was when a friend in Austria dreamt 2 nights in a row that she saw her mother standing with only one leg, and asked me what it meant. I said 'Sie hat ihre zweite bein verloren' ('she lost her second leg'), a german expression meaning someone has lost a key means of support. I told her that, but also that she still has another means of support available to her (the other leg), so she will be okay. Next time I saw her, she said her stepfather had died soon after, and that her mother had gone back to her father...

    Sorry Evan, would never do such a thing mate! Just makes you wonder, how certain people try to make, in this case Nostradamus, prophecies fit their own theories, change a bit here, move something there.....
    As you say as well, alot of stuff gets lost in old languages and translations....

    :D

    Pick one prediction, any one you like, which is supposed to occur in the future. This means one that is not deemed to have been fulfilled with the benefit of hindsight. If that is fulfilled then I'll be impressed. Until then I maintain that any attempts to predict the future are pointless.
    Cheers

    Almost as pointless as Osbourne's assertion that we are in economic 'recovery' ?
    Lies, damn lies, statistics and predictions.:lol:

    "Nostradamus"

    In the east the wind is blowing the boats across the sea
    And their sails will fill the morning and their cries ring out to me
    Oh, Oh
    Oh, the more it changes, the more it stays the same
    And the hand just re-arranges the players in the game

    Oh, I had a dream, it seemed I stood alone
    And the veil of all the years
    Goes sinking from my eyes like a stone

    A king shall fall and put to death by the English parliament shall be
    Fire and plague to London come in the year of six and twenties three
    An emperor of France shall rise who will be born near Italy
    His rule shall cost his empire dear, Napoloron his name shall be
    From Castile does Franco come and the Government driven out shall be
    An English king seeks divorce, and from his throne cast down is he
    One named Hister shall become a captain of Greater Germany
    No law does this man observe and bloody his rise and fall shall be

    Man, man, your time is sand, your ways are leaves upon the sea
    I am the eyes of Nostradamus, all your ways are known to me
    Man, man, your time is sand, your ways are leaves upon the sea
    I am the eyes of Nostradamus, all your ways are known to me

    In the new lands of America three brothers now shall come to power
    Two alone are born to rule but all must die before their hour
    Two great men yet brothers not make the north united stand
    Its power be seen to grow, and fear possess the eastern lands
    Three leagues from the gates of Rome a Pope named Pol is doomed to die
    A great wall that divides a city at this time is cast aside
    These are the signs I bring to you to show you when the time is nigh
    Man, man, your time is sand, your ways are leaves upon the sea
    I am the eyes of Nostradamus, all your ways are known to me

    Interesting Chris,

    But, I do know this to be true.

    The Moving Finger writes; and, having writ,
    Moves on: nor all thy Piety nor Wit
    Shall lure it back to cancel half a Line,
    Nor all thy Tears wash out a Word of it.

    Come to think of it, what happened to all them doomsday preppers and the like? They're awfully quiet since the world didn't end on the 21st of December last year, are they still in hiding? Since the Mayan(?) calendar has stopped, whose calendar are we on now, or are we on our own? ;)
    Who'll be the first to predict the new date for our next end of the world?
