Michel de Notre Dame, better known as Nostradamus, at the beginning of the 16th century, wrote a book of predictions, many of them began to come true 11 years after his death.
This fact is fascinating, especially taking into account the fact that it was a simple druggist.
Thousands of his followers believe he has predicted events that have yet to occur.
Events of the past centuries
One of the predictions of Nostradamus concernsGreat Fire of London, which happened exactly one hundred years after the death of the seer. The fire covered one building after another. From fire affected about 80 000 people, burned most of the buildings and even the Cathedral of Saint Paul. Many Londoners saw in that something sinister prediction, because there was a fire in September 1666, and this year marked the devil figure.
Nostradamus wrote metaphors, unclear designated dates, places and events. Therefore, many of his predictions, as they say, "attracted" and questioned.
Nostradamus predicted that in 1799 in theFrance will be a revolution. He wrote that the enslaved people rise up against their princes and lords. Indeed, his predictions started coming true: the riots led to the fact that the absolute monarchy that existed in France for centuries collapsed in three years. Religious, aristocratic and feudal privileges were eliminated. It is time to free-thinking liberals.
Perhaps due to the fact that Nostradamus wasFrench in origin, many of his predictions for France. He is absolutely unimaginable way was able to tell us about the ascent of Napoleon. Narrating about the future emperor, he wrote the following words: Pau, Nay, Loron. If you rearrange the letters, it turns Napaulon Roy, that the sound resembles the name of Napoleon.
Events of our times
"A child is born in Western Europe. He lift up his word and his fame goes far to the east. " These words describe Nostradamus Adolf Hitler, who, according to many historians, is one of three antichrists described visionary. The most impressive prediction of Nostradamus has become the story of the Second World War. None of the armed conflict in the history of mankind can not be compared with the cruelty of Hitler's plans to conquer the world. It was the most destructive, the most devastating war, which destroyed tens of millions of people. It is currently the only war in which nuclear weapons were used. Nostradamus described the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki by US troops as "extermination steel." Apparently, the seer could not explain what I saw, and the word "steel" in those days was used in relation to different types of weapons. While many believe that the vision of mass death rather tell about the deaths from starvation and plague, rather than the events of the Second World War.
It is said that Nostradamus predicted his own death. Saying goodbye in the evening with a servant, he said that in the morning he was gone. And indeed, in the morning he was found dead.
Nostradamus quite clearly described the death of brothersKennedy, one of which was shot in Dallas on his wife's eyes, and the other was killed in Los Angeles five years later, and Princess Diana, who died in a car accident with her boyfriend on the wine drunken driver.
But the most incredible thing - the prediction of the events of 11September, when as a result of a terrorist act two twin towers of the Trade Center in New York City caught fire and fell. Nostradamus wrote: "The fire of the volcano from the center of the earth tremble new city. Two stone for a long time will be covered by the war. Then Arethusa will color a new river red. In the year 1999, seventh month, come from the sky Death. " Historians believe that Nostradamus described the events of that day, when New York was shaken by the horrific events: in the twin towers, one after another crashed two planes Shopping Center caught fire, people were trapped and could not get out of the burning building, and then the tower collapsed.
