DID NOSTRADAMUS PREDICT 9-11?


    Could Nostradamus really see into the future, or was he just a very clever fraud?  Nostradamus recorded his visions in 4-line poems known as "quatrains," often containing specific references, including names, dates, places and events.  Of his original 1200 poems, only 949 still remain.  The following Nostradamus quatrains (a new one will be added each month) represent some well-known examples of his predictions that have been translated from their original Old French versions, and linked to real historical events:

 

     NOSTRADAMUS QUATRAIN #1-25

   The unseen is discovered, hidden for such a long time,

   Perdu trouve, cache de si long siecle,

   He will, Pasteur, as a demi-God be honored;

   Sera, Pasteur, demi-Dieu honore;

   This is when the moon completes her great cycle (1880's),

   Ains que la lune acheve son grand siecle,

   But through other's slanders, he will be dishonored.

   Par autres vents, sera dishonore.

   In this truly amazing prophecy, Nostradamus not only predicts Louis Pasteur's famous discovery of the long-hidden microbe, but also includes Pasteur's name, and gives the date of the event as near the end of the Great Cycle of the Moon in the 1880's (i.e. The Roussat Moon Cycle 1535-1888).  Nostradamus then goes on to describe how the great chemist and microbiologist becomes an object of slander and ridicule by his jealous colleagues in the European medical community.  Modern scientists have not yet been able to successfully explain how Nostradamus was able to accomplish this amazing feat of prophecy, over two hundred years before Pasteur was born.

 

 

     NOSTRADAMUS QUATRAIN #1-29

   When an aquatic vehicle (traversing) land & water,

   Quand le poisson terrestre & aquatique,

   By strong waves onto the sand shall be propelled;

   Par forte vague au gravier sera mis;

   Its strange form mysterious & horrific,

   Sa forme estrange suave & horrifique,

   From the sea to the walls, very quickly toward the enemy.

   Par mer aux murs bien tost les ennemis.

   This quatrain is a typical modern example of someone deliberately misinterpreting Nostradamus prophecies to fit a situation.  This prophecy was recently represented on television as describing the 2004 Indonesion tsunami.  This quatrain actually describes Nostradamus' famous vision of the D-Day invasion of France on June 6, 1945.  The invasion was dubbed "Operation Overlord", and took place during a storm at sea.  This highly descriptive quatrain accurately describes Nostradamus' famous vision of the mechanically driven amphibious landing craft that were nearly swamped by the high waves as they moved rapidly onto the sandy beaches of Normandy and swiftly assaulted the high rock walls that had been fortified with tank turrets and machine guns.  In the first two week of battle, approximately 200,000 soldiers lost their lives.

 

 

     NOSTRADAMUS QUATRAIN #1-32

   The grand empire will be quickly reduced

   Le grand empire sera tost translate

   To a tiny area, which shall very soon expand;

   En lieu petit, que bien tost croistre;

   A quite unsavory place in a meager country,

   Lieux bien infame, d'exigue comte,

   In the middle of which he will come to lay down his scepter.

   Ou au milieu viendra poser son sceptre.

   This quatrain describes the first exile of Napoleon Bonaparte on the tiny island of Elba.  Napoleon arrived on Elba on May 4, 1814, and was allowed to hold full legal (sceptre) authority on the island.  The emperor soon grew tired of the restrictions of the tiny island, and decided to expand his empire once again by escaping and returning to France to regain control of the French army.  Napoleon's return to France however, would be of very short duration, lasting only about 100 days.  The emperor was stopped by the English general Wellington at the famous battle of Waterloo, and he was exiled for a second time on the much more distant island of Saint Helena.  Napoleon was not able to escape his captivity on Saint Helena and was destined to suffer a slow and painful death from stomach cancer on the remote island.

 

 

     NOSTRADAMUS QUATRAIN #1-35

   The young lion, shall overcome the older

   Le lyon jeune, le vieux surmontera

   On the field of battle, by singular duel;

   En champ bellique, par singulier duelle;

   Through armor of gold, his eye will be pierced,

   Dans caige d'or, yeux luy crevera,

   Two wounds in one, then to die a cruel death.

   Deux chasses une, puis mourir mort cruelle.

  CLICK HERE FOR OLD FRENCH DICTIONARY

   This is the poem that made Nostradamus famous in his own time.  It describes a royal duel that took place on July 1, 1559, in which the French king Henry II, wearing a golden jousting helmet, was mortally wounded in the eye and neck by the splintered lance of his younger opponent, Captain Gabriel Montgomery of the Scottish Guard.  The reference to lions alludes to the fact that both men had lions embossed on their shields.   Henry lingered for ten days before suffering a cruel death from his wounds.  Nostradamus had recorded this prophecy nearly four years before the actual incident occurred.

 

 

     NOSTRADAMUS QUATRAIN #1-48

   Twenty years of the reign of the Moon having passed,

   Vingt ans du regne de la Lune passez,

   Seven thousand years and another will take up his throne;

   Sept mil ans autre tiendra sa monarchie;

   When the sun shall complete its weary days,

   Quand le soleil prendra ses jours lasses,

   Then accomplished & proven will be my prophecies.

   Lors accomplit & mine ma prophetie.

   In this poem, Nostradamus tells us that in the Last Days all his prophecies will finally be proven true.  Unfortunately it will be too late for them to benefit anyone in this highly skeptical and doubting modern world.  The Seventh Millenium of mankind's civilized existence on this planet witnesses an age of high technology and amazing scientific achievements.  God and His prophets are soon relegated to a rather insignificant position in a world more concerned with following its own path to perfection.

 

 

     NOSTRADAMUS QUATRAIN #1-49

   Long before such events,

   Beaucoup avant telles menees,

   Those of the East, by virtue of the (Crescent) moon,

   Ceux d'Orient, par la vertu lunaire,

   In the 17th century will make great conquests.

   L'an mil sept cens feront grands emmenees.

   They will nearly subjugate a corner of Russia.

   Subjugant presque le coing Aquilonaire.

   Near the end of the 17th century, the Ottoman Turks, under the flag of the Crescent Moon, had conquered most of the Balkan peninsula, and were now slowly encircling the Black Sea.  Russia's Peter the Great was forced to attack the fort at Azov in order to prevent the Ottomans from capturing the wedge (corner) of Russian land that lies between the Black Sea and the Caspian Sea.  On July 18, 1696, the Ottoman troops holding the fort surrender to the Russians.

 

 

     NOSTRADAMUS QUATRAIN #1-58

   Delivered by Ceasarean, it will be born with two heads

   Tranche le ventre, naistra avec deux testes

   And four arms; for a few years it is nourished and shall live;

   Et quatre bras; quelques ans entiers vivra;

   On the day that the Alchemists shall celebrate their holidays

   Jour qui Alquiloie celebrera ses festes

   At Fossano and Turin, it will follow the chief of Ferrara.

   Fossen, Turin, chef Ferrara suivra.

   Europe's Alchemists parade a set of Siamese twins through the streets of Fossen and Turin in Italy to prove that indeed anything is possible.  They are lobbying the government for more funding to support their continued research and experimentation into the science of chemistry, promising everyone that they will soon be able to turn lead into gold.   Sound familiar?

 

 

     NOSTRADAMUS QUATRAIN #1-60

   An Emperor will be born near Italy,

   Un Empereur naistra pres d'Italie,

   Who shall cost the Empire very dearly;

   Qui a l'Empire sera vendu bien cher;

   It will be said by those who rally about him,

   Diront avec quelz gens il se ralie,

   That he will prove less prince than butcher.

   Qu'on trouvera moins prince que boucher.

   Nostradamus in this quatrain describes the coming of the emperor Napoleon Buonaparte born August 15, 1769 on the island of Corsica near Italy.  Napoleon will ultimately capture the throne of France, and succeed in conquering more land, creating more destruction, and killing more people than any previous world conqueror.

 

 

     NOSTRADAMUS QUATRAIN #1-70

   Tempest, hatred, war, in Iran not ceasing,

   Pluie, faim, guerre, en Perse non cessee,

   Those of too great a faith will betray the Monarch;

   La foy trop grand trahira le Monarque;

   But the end begins in France,

   Par la finie en Gaule commencee,

   A secret sign for one to be hemmed-in.

   Secret augure pour a un estre parque.

   The monarchy of Persia (Iran) had continued on for centuries, but in this amazing prophecy, Nostradamus not only predicts it's end, but informs us that the order to end it will come from France.  And in 1979, the Ayatollah Khomeini, living in exile in France, does in fact issue his secret order for all his religious followers to rise up against the rule of the Shah.  Surrounded by fundamentalist revolutionaries, the Shah is forced to flee to Egypt.

 

 

     NOSTRADAMUS QUATRAIN #1-86

   The great queen, upon seeing herself vanquished,

   La grand royne, quand se verra vaincue,

   Will exibit an excess of masculine courage;

   Fera exces de masculin courage;

   On horseback she will cross the river totally unprotected,

   Sus cheval, fleuve passera tout nue,

   Pursued by swordsmen; an act of outrage!

   Suite par fer; a foy fera outrage!

  CLICK HERE FOR OLD FRENCH DICTIONARY

   A vanquished queen, Mary Queen of Scots escapes her captors by stealing a horse and riding unprotected for over 90 miles to reach friendly territory.  She is pursued in the nighttime by a posse of armed swordsmen on horseback.  Nostradamus notes the extreme bravery of this queen, and the extreme cowardice of the group of men pursuing her.

 

 

     NOSTRADAMUS QUATRAIN #1-87

   Enormous-promontories on fire in the center of the mainland,

   Enno-sigee feu du centre de terre,

   Will cause trembling in the towers of the City of New York;

   Fera trembler au tour de Cite Neufve;

   Two great rock-monoliths continuously will be attacked,

   Deux grands rochiers longtemps feront la guerre,

   This is when air-vessels will turn-around to a new course.

   Puis are-thuse rou-gira nouveau fleuve.

   In 1981, over 20 years before the actual event occurred, author Erika Cheetham stated in her now famous book The Man Who Saw Tomorrow - The Prophecies of Nostradamus , that Quatrain #1-87 described an "Attack on New York", possibly involving its "towers or skyscrapers".   On September 11, 2001, Arab terrorists hijacked two airplanes and turned them around to a new course, crashing them into the World Trade Center towers in New York City.  This shockingly accurate prediction of a 21st century event remains a source of great controversy today, as scientists and academics continue to insist that it is not possible for man to see into the future.  If that is true, then Bible prophecy must also be included in that assertion.  Could it be possible that Nostradamus was one of the 500-year Hebrew prophets sent by God to warn His people about upcoming world catastrophes?  It might be prudent to note that all God's prophets were rejected as evil sorcerors and frauds by the most respected religious authorities of their time, and that many were handed up to the civil authorities to be hanged, beheaded or crucified for their acts.

 

 

     NOSTRADAMUS QUATRAIN #1-88

   A most holy evil will surprise the great Prince,

   Le divin mal surprendra le grand Prince,

   Shortly before this he shall have taken a bride;

   Un peu devant aura femme espouse;

   His support & authority will grow very thin,

   Son apuy & credit a un coup viendra mince,

   His power shall be ended by the shaven heads.

   Conseil mourra pour la teste rasee.

   The boy king, Francis II of France, takes the teenage Mary Queen of Scots to be his bride.  Francis was born with a club foot, and is viewed as a weak and sickly child.  He and his mother, Queen Catherine de Medici, are totally unaware that the Catholic Church has sent Dominican friars (shaven heads) to work in the royal kitchens and poison the young king's food.  They will mix snake venom into the honey glaze used to coat the king's meat, and Francis II will die at the tender age of 16.  Queen Catherine de Medici however, will succeed in placing her next son on the throne as King Charles IX.
