    Did Nostradamus know??

    Interesting quote in the writings of Nostradamus:




    Nostradamus Greatest Flop?: Prophesy 10-72: 7th month/SEPT 1999:

    The year 1999, seventh month, L´an mil neuf cent nonante neuf sept mois,
    From the sky will come a great King of Terror: Du ciel viendra un grand Roi d´effreyeur:
    To bring back to life the great Mongol King, Ressuchiter le grand Roi d´Angelmois,
    Before and after Mars to reign by good luck. Avant aprés Mars regner par bonheur

    This is the last dated prophesy of Michel Nostradamus. As with most of his prophesies the meaning is somewhat clouded. A straightforward interpretation would be that a celestial body like a meteor will hit the the earth in the 7th month 1999 and cause terrible devastation. To make sense of line 3 one must regard the king of terror not from Angoumois in France, but rather a mongol King of Terror, who is of course Ghenghis Khan. Mars in the 4th line is the warrior god and could indicate a warlike situation, as an attack from Mars now can be ruled out.

    BUT Nostradamus´ luck cannot be denied. 11th "SEPT" 2001 the World Trade Center was hit "from the sky" by "a great King of Terror" which is a dead on description of Osamar bin Laden. He is no Mongol, but was born in Saudi Arabia and now resides in Afghanistan, so Nostradamus maybe meant an eastern barbarian in general. A third World War is a faint possibility, but at least an American retaliation is probable and President Bush talks about "a declaration of war". It is quite possible that Nostradamus meant the month of September and not the 7th month July, but it is generally held that he talked about 1999 and not 2001. Nostradamus´ proponents will no doubt explain this, just wait.


    [ Vbarbieri978@cs.com"Don't be so sure. Remember the Gregorian calendar 1999 is actually 2000 and the seventh month SEPT is actually September of the year 2001"]


    Or was this the real prophesy:


    "In the year 1999 and seven months,

    From the skies shall come an alarmingly powerful king,

    To raise again the great King of the Jacquerie,

    Before and after, Mars shall reign at will




    How can you get 2001 out of 1999? Or even stretched to 2000??
    Just as the skeptics(me included) thought they had put the last nail in the coffin of Nostradamus, he is resurrected by events. If Nostradamus could see into the future is unclear, but his predictions are a real phenomenon, it seems.

    THIS IS A HOAX!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Here is an update from the nostradamus repository at http://www.nostradamus-repository.org/cityofgod.html (This is where I found the original link to the page you are looking for, and I pointed out in the post directly above yours.

    Update Sept 13, 2001

    It is hard to understand why some people are using such a tragic event to spread more fear using the name of Nostradamus but unfortunately that is the case.

    By the way, Nostradamus died in 1566 so anything with "Nostradamus 1654" should give you a clue.

    So, for your information, the following variations are also hoaxes attributed to Nostradamus:

    The one starting with "New century and 9 months",

    The one starting with "9 months and eleven days" or "On eleventh day of 9th month",

    The one which mentions "two steel birds",

    The one which mixes 2 completely unrelated quatrains of Nostradamus "From the sky will come a great King of Terror...The sky will burn at forty-five degrees" in order to fit the event. Also, don't forget that NY is not at 45 degrees but a little south of 41 degrees.

    More will be added as encountered...

    As for "City of God", see below:

    The following quatrain has been circulating the Internet after the WTC bombings.

    In the City of God there will be a great thunder,
    two brothers torn apart by chaos,
    while the fortress endures, the great leader will sucumb.
    The third big war will begin when the big city is burning.

    It is NOT by Nostradamus. This is a HOAX. (The link to a possible source of this hoax has been removed as that page is no longer accessible.)

    Sorry 'Jersey Yankee' no can do. All the links to this site and every other site about this quote, have been discontinued because of the enormous number of hits these sites were taking. I can confirm what Cal said though. The quote is not by Nostradamus. It was a created quote by a person who was trying to explain how these 'predictions' are created and how they can be applied to hundreds of situations.

    Okay--I took this off of Democratic Underground---
    See the last part for the hoaxes that are circulating:

    Century 4 Quatrain 59
    Two beset in burning fervor:
    By thirst for two full cups extinguished,
    The fort filed, and an old dreamer
    To the Genevans he will show the track from "Nira"

    Someone once suggested "Nira" is an anagram of "Iran" but that's been dismissed.

    Century 6 Quatrain 97
    At forty-five degrees the sky will burn,
    Fire to approach the new city:
    In an instant a great scattered flame will leap up,
    When one will want to demand proof of the Normans

    NYC lies on the 45th degree latitude.
    (Note: It lies on the 45th--pacoyogi)

    Century 9 Quatrain 92
    The King will want to enter the new city,
    Through its enemies they will come to subdue it:
    Captive free falsely to speak and act,
    King to be outside, he will keep far from the enemy

    Bush wanted to go to New York when he heard of the first crash.
    The US is practically closed down - subdued
    The captive may be the air hostess who got a message out but was not really free
    GW Bush has certainly remained far from the enemy

    Interestingly, the only direct mention of America is in a very controversial quatrain,
    Century 10 Quatrain 66:
    The chief of London through the realm of America,
    The Isle of Scotland will be tried by frost;
    King and "Reb" will face an Antichrist so false,
    That he will place them in the conflict all together

    This has had many interpretations including the English Civil War and the American Revolution.

    The following are HOAXES:

    "In the City of God there will be a great thunder,
    Two brothers torn apart by Chaos,
    while the fortress endures,
    the great leader will succumb,
    The third big war will begin when the big city is burning"

    "on the 11th day of the 9 month that...
    two metal birds would crash into two tall statues...
    in the new city...
    and the world will end soon after"

    Any questions or comments appreciated
