11 accurate predictions of Nostradamus
Many skeptics do not believe in the predictions of the French pharmacist and the alleged prophet Nostradamus, but it cannot be denied that his ideas are very tenacious.
He wrote his first book, The Prophecies, in 1555, and publishers produce copies in our time. There is even a book "Nostradamus for Dummies."
In the text of his book in each quatrain an attempt was made to predict the future.
While logic says that every statement of Nostradamus is applicable to any event, some of them are eerily close to reality. In these 11 cases it is impossible to ignore his theoretical mastery.
1. Death of Henry II
"The young lion conquers the old
On the battlefield in a single fight
He will poke out his eye in a golden cage,
Two wounds will become one, and after a painful death will die. "
In the summer of 1559, the French king Henry II was going to fight in a duel with Gabriel, Count Montgomery, the lord de Lorges, a nobleman who was six years younger than him.
In their last gathering, the Montgomery spear rose up and shattered into two fragments. One went through the royal helmet visor and dug into his eye, and the second was stuck in the temple. Heinrich suffered for ten days before he died in his bed.
Some sources say that there were lion-shaped emblems on their shields, although this is debatable. Skeptics also claim that the “battlefield” in the quatrain may not be related to the friendly knightly tournament in which Henry II was killed.
2. Great London Fire
"Just blood will be thirsty in London,
66 burnt on fire
The old lady will fall from her high place
And many brothers in faith will be killed. "
On September 2, 1666, a small fire in the Thomas Farriner bakery in Padding Lane in London turned into a three-day flame that swallowed the city. This event is known as the Great London Fire.
The number of dead peasants was not calculated at that time, but some historians claim that eight people died in the fire. Thousands of houses were also destroyed.
"The blood of the faithful" can be attributed to the elimination of millions of flea-blooded rats that spread the Black Death.The plague ceased during the Great Fire.
3. French Revolution
"Songs and trebies will come from the enslaved,
Being held captive by nobles in their prisons,
Later brainless idiots
Call it divine utterances. ”
In 1789, the French people decided to end the rule of the aristocracy. They rebelled and stormed the Bastille, a Parisian fortress used as a prison. The fall of Bastille, which symbolized the abuses of the monarchy, was the culmination of the French Revolution.
The peasants quickly took control of Paris and fulfilled their demands by capturing members of the royal family. Some of them were beheaded.
4. The conquests of Napoleon
Napoleon I Bonaparte
"By, not, Loron, more fire than blood,
Swimming in glory, a great man runs to the crowd.
He will refuse to enter the talkers,
Pampon and Durance will sharpen it. ”
Po, Ne and Loron are three cities near Paris, although the latter is called Oloron. Bringing them, Nostradamus uses one of his favorite tricks - an anagram.
By regrouping the letters of the names of cities, you can get Napaulon Roy, which eerily reminds King Napoleon in French.
“More fire than blood” may refer to the ignoble origin of Napoleon, who took power by force. "Refusing to enter the talkers" - may refer to the popes Pius VI and Pius VII, whom Napoleon imprisoned.
5. Philip II Board
"For seven years, Philip will flourish,
He will reduce the Arab army,
Then, halfway through, everything will turn against him,
A young onion will destroy his condition. ”
The Spanish Catholic king Philip II began to rule the country in 1556, and Spain became incredibly rich during the first period of his rule. “Seven” can be interpreted biblically as “a long time.”
His success, however, unexpectedly ceased in 1587, along with the execution of Mary Stewart, also a Catholic. Her death actually ended his alliance with England. A year later, he tried to invade England with his Spanish armada, but England prevented him.
The Quatrain also mentions the battle of Lepanto, in which Spain defeated the fleet of the Ottoman Empire, in an area in the south inhabited by Arabs. Later, Philip called for the expulsion of Muslims from Spain.
In conclusion, the “young onion” refers us to the 36-year-old Henry IV the Great, a Huguenot, therefore, a Protestant. They did not agree on religion and fought until Philip died.
6. Discovery of Louis Pasteur
"The lost thing is open, hidden for many centuries,
Pasteur will be famous, almost as God-like,
It will happen when the moon completes her great cycle,
But because of other rumors, he will be dishonored. ”
Born in 1822, Louis Pasteur was a French chemist and microbiologist who discovered that microbial growth causes fermentation. The discovery also proved that the bacteria do not just spontaneously appear, as previously thought. Instead, they grow from already living organisms — this process is called biogenesis.
Until Pasteur presented his “bacterial theory” for the first time, he convinced all of Europe of its validity. He invented the process of getting rid of bacteria, "pasteurization", which is named after him. His early research also led to the creation of a vaccine against rabies and anthrax.
However, in 1995, science historian Gerald L. Jason released a book showing that Pasteur used his rival's discoveries to make his anthrax vaccine work. This discovery partially "disgraced" Pasteur, as Nostradamus predicted.
7. Hitler’s Terror in Europe
"In the depths of Western Europe
Poor people will be born a small child,
He is the one by whose language great troops will be seduced
His fame will increase on the way to the East. "
"Fierce starvation will cross the river,
Most of the battlefield will be against Hister,
In the iron cage they will drag the great
When a child in Germany does not notice anything.
Born into a poor family in 1889 in Western Europe, Hitler used his advanced oratorical skills to mobilize the Nazi party in Germany in the years after the First World War. Germany, as a member of the Axis countries, also had an alliance with Japan in the East. While many take the word “Hister” for a typo, this is also the old name for the Danube River.
Hitler was born just a few miles from the river in the territory of the future Austria-Hungary, also known as the Danube Monarchy. Remember, Nostradamus often used anagrams such as Hister in his writings.
8. Leadership of Charles de Gaulle
Charles de Gaulle
"Hercules will be king of Rome and Annmark,
A man named de Gaulle - the leader thrice
Italy and the waters of Venice will tremble,
He will become more famous than all the monarchs. ”
Charles de Gaulle - three times the leader - started as the leader of the Free French forces, the French government in exile, located in London during the Second World War.
He then became prime minister of the interim post-war government. Finally, in 1959, he assumed the duties of the President of the Fifth French Republic.
9. Atomic bomb
"A heavy arrow took a course,
Death in words is a great achievement
Proud people are humbled by a stone in a tree,
Rumors of a monstrous man who brought purification, then redemption. ”
In August 1945, the United States dropped two atomic bombs on Japan, in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Many historians say that this tragedy marked the end of the Second World War.
Those who escaped immediate detonation suffered from painful radiation poisoning, many died. The “stone in the tree” in the Nostradam quatrain can describe the shape of a mushroom cloud that swept the sky over the city. In addition, it can mean an earthly object, such as a stone or a bomb that appears where it should not be, in a tree or in the sky.
10. The Killing of John F. Kennedy
"The ancient task will be completed
From above, the devil will fall, may he be a great man,
The dead innocent will be accused of accomplishing,
The guilty will remain in the fog. ”
The murder of John F. Kennedy in 1963 was undoubtedly committed "from on high": a bullet entered his head from the level of the roof.
A man accused of a crime, Lee Harvey Oswald (Lee Harvey Oswald), did not live long enough to face the court. The owner of the Dallos nightclub killed him while he was under police custody. Oswald also insisted that he was a scapegoat, but, nevertheless, not guilty.
Even now, we certainly do not know who killed Kennedy. According to a recent Gallal poll, 61% of Americans believe it was a conspiracy.
11. September 11, 2001
"The sky will burn at 45 degrees,
The fire will reach the great new city.
He will destroy the city with the help of fire,
Cold and cruel heart, blood will spill, and mercy to anyone! ”
On the morning of September 11, 2001, hijacked planes crashed into two towers of the World Trade Center in New York.
Scientists interpret the "45 degrees" and as the proximity of New York to 45 latitude, and somehow that the buildings fell at a 45 ° angle relative to the ground, although they destroyed themselves.
