Nostradamus Prophecies - USA

Century VIII, Quatrain 66 (édition de 1568)


Quand l'escriture D.M.trouuee,
Et caue antique à lampe descouuerte,
Loy, Roy,& Prince Vlpian esprouuee,
Pauillon Royne & Duc sous la couuerte.


When the inscription D.M. is found
in the ancient cave, revealed by a lamp.
Law, the King and Prince Ulpian tried,
the Queen and Duke in the pavilion under cover.


The D.M. stands for Depeche Mode.....

The word TRAGEDY literally means "GOAT SONG". tragis oide: "goat
song"; perhaps the derivation of the word "tragedy" (were goats
awarded as prizes? does this refer to the ritualistic slaughter of the
sacrificial animal? the scream that the goat makes when slaughtered?)


NOTICE HOW BUSH IS READING ABOUT A GOAT ****EXACTLY**** AS THE WTC
BURNS.....

Nostradamus - USA

The truth about Nostradamus
Considering all the lies that were spread about Nostradamus following
9/11 it is necessary to reveal what he actually wrote....


X.72.... Here is an example of a "perfect match prophecy," with date
and
event WHILE revealing the AGE of CIVILIZATION. Not the Stone Age or the
Bronze Age but the SPACE AGE.


NOSTRADAMUS REVEALS THE AGE OF CIVILIZATION IN THE YEAR 1999
(SPACE AGE).


What Britannica says about the SPACE AGE, "...Post 1945.. It justifies
the
description of this period, however, as that of "space age technology."


Subject: THE ACTUAL 1999 PROPHECY BY NOSTRADAMUS - X, 72


1) What relevant social-historical material can you
find in the quatrain
X.72?


Only the last line relates the quatrain to the *entire
world* and refers to
*particular* level of global social and historical
development. Advanced
technological civilization has created the means to
travel many millions of
miles through space.


Show me something in the quatrain that reveals the
type of world we lived in
during 1999?


The quatrain deals with the all-embracing nature of
technology and science
in human affairs and their destructive and repressive
use. It refers to a
specific stage of human technological and scientific
development, a phase of
human civilization called the "SPACE AGE."


Is there something unique in that quatrain which links
it to 1999 and is
found during no other time in human history?


Spaceships have been sent to Mars for quite a while.
BUT IN *ONE* YEAR
(1999) *TWO* SPACESHIPS WERE DESTROYED *ON* MARS.
(i.e., The year
1999....BEFORE AND AFTER MARS REIGNS WITH GOOD
FORTUNE). That is a world
historical novelty.


Other interpretations cannot point to objective
*concrete reality* and just
assume that the prophecy contains no social-historical
*BACKGROUND*.
Indeed, it would be no prophecy if it could not point
to the concrete world
we actually live in.


Century X. Quatrain 72


L'an mil neuf cens nonante neuf sept mois
Du ciel viendra un grand Roy deffraieur
Resusciter le grand Roy d'Angolmois.
*Avant apres Mars regner par bon heur.*


THE ACTUAL X.72 PROPHECY BY NOSTRADAMUS:


Century X, Quatrain 72


The year 1999, seventh month,
From the sky will come a great King of Terror:
To bring back to life the great King of Angolmois,
*BEFORE AND AFTER MARS TO REIGN WITH GOOD FORTUNE.*

SEE DOUBLE?


DATE: 1999. PLACE: MARS.


BEFORE AND AFTER = X 2.


THE FIRST PART OF THE PROPHECY IS CLEAR ENOUGH AND DOES NOT
REQUIRE
*INTERPRETATION*.


THE THIRD LINE SHOWS THAT PROFOUND *MYSTERY* SURROUNDS THE
ENTIRE UNIVERSE.
HUMAN REASON ONLY TOUCHES THE VERY SURFACE
OF REALITY. THE TRUE NATURE OF THE UNIVERSE CAN NEVER BE
UNDERSTOOD OR
CONTROLLED BY THE MIND. IN OTHER WORDS, THINGS ARE NOT AS THEY
SEEM...


HENCE THE LAST LINE...


THE FINAL LINE OF THE PROPHECY IS ABOUT THE DESTRUCTION OF THE *TWO*
SPACESHIPS ON MARS IN *1999*.


YOU "MISSED" THE CRITICAL 1999 PROPHECY THAT DEALS WITH THE VERY
LIMITS OF
HUMAN TECHNOLOGICAL AND SCIENTIFIC DEVELOPMENT AND THEIR
ULTIMATE AND
CATASTROPHIC FAILURE!


COINCIDENCE? YOU BE THE JUDGE....

Scientists Say It Broke Up Before It Reached Mars


PASADENA, Calif. Posted 10:05 a.m.
SEPTEMBER 23, 1999 -- A $125 million
spacecraft designed to be NASA's first
interplanetary weather satellite was presumed
lost on Mars Thursday after it failed to regain
contact with Earth following a critical engine
firing to place it in orbit around the red
planet.


A preliminary analysis shows that Mars Climate
Orbiter made too close an approach to the
planet and likely broke into pieces or burned
up in
the atmosphere, said
operations project manager Richard Cook of NASA's
Jet
Propulsion
Laboratory (JPL).


channel2000.com/sh/news/stories/nat-news-19991205-021219.html


PASADENA, Posted 9:12 p.m. EST DECEMBER 4, 1999
--
For a
second day Saturday, NASA scientists anxiously
waited
for a signal from
the still-silent Mars Polar Lander, a craft
critics
say may have been in
trouble even before it left the launch pad 11
months
ago.


Weeks before the $165 million craft
began its descent towards the Red
Planet, questions were being raised
about the mission and whether it might
be doomed by tight budgets and
understaffing.


Attempts to detect signals from the
spacecraft were to continue with a
transmission window opening Saturday
night. It has not been heard from since Friday,
when
it began its fiery
descent toward Mars.


---------------------------------------------------------------------------*-
----
Did Nostradamus predict the Sept.11 disaster?


This quatrain reveals the style and hidden essence of the prophecies.


THE ACTUAL WTC PROPHECY BY NOSTRADAMUS - II, 89:


THE CROSS OF DESTRUCTION:


CENTURY II, QUATRAIN 89


Vn iour seront demis les deux grands maistres,
Leur grand pouuoir se verra augmenté:
La terre neuue sera en ses hauts estres,
Au sanguinaire le nombre racompté.


One day the two great masters will be halved,
Their great power will be seen increased:
The new land will be at its high peak,
To the Bloody One the number recounted.


*SEE DOUBLE?*


New Land = America (SEE X,66)


The Bloody One = Antichrist (SEE X, 66)


Time of prophecy: One day.


Two great masters halved: 2 skyscrapers of WTC and 2 aircraft. Also
symbolic
of TECHNOLOGY and CAPITALISM concretely embodied by the *planes* and
*towers*.


Place of destruction: The high peak of the
"New Land."


Mode of destruction: Number recounted = x2.


The American Antichrist of X,66 and the
"King of Terror" of X,72 is the "BLOODY ONE."


See how X.72 provides the starting DATE (1999) and how X.66 provides
the
PLACE (AMERICA) for the destructive revelations of the Antichrist (THE
BLOODY ONE)? See how each quatrain is linked together?


SEA OF SIN:


Century X, Quatrain 49


Iardin du monde aupres de cité neufue,


Dans le chemin des montaignes cauees:


Sera saisi & plongé dans la Cuve,


Beuuant par force eaux soulphre enuenimees.


Garden of the world near the new city,


In the path of the HOLLOW MOUNTAINS:


It will be seized and plunged into the Tub,


Forced to drink waters poisoned by sulfur.


"Jardin du monde" = Garden of Eden or


"Hanging Gardens of Babylon," which are


both located in Iraq.


"Cite neufue" = New York City.


(i.e., Iraq near New York City).


Which implies that Iraq is somehow


involved in the September 11 attacks. The


"hollow mountains" links time, place, and


action of the prophecy. The "hollow


mountains" is Nostradamus' description


of the two skyscrapers of the WTC.


"In the path of the hollow mountains"


means what comes after the WTC


destruction.


Seized and plunged in the "Cuue"


(i.e., in Renaissance French, a fermentation


cauldron used for mixing chemicals,


poisons, etc) is a reference to the seizures


and drowning effects of a


chemical/biological attack and/or modern day plague and/or modern dat
flood (tsunami?).


Notice "Cuue" is capitalized in the original quatrain


(SEE ABOVE) to show that this is the most


important element in the quatrain.


The poisoning of the water mentioned here


is of an entirely different nature, as boiling


the water or bottled water--if it were meant


literally--could eliminate the poison.


But this poisoning is far more serious as it


cannot be avoided (i.e., forced to drink).


The drowning effects of pulmonary


anthrax or some other chemical/biological


poison is implied.


Sulfur is a symbolic reference to brimstone


(i.e., The Wrath of God). Water is the way


God destroys man during the "Flood."


Century X, Quatrain 66


Le chef de Londres par regne l'Americh,
L'isle d'Escosse t'empiera par gelée :
Roy Rebauront un si faux Antechrist,
Que les mettra trestous dans la meslée.


The chief of London through the realm of AMERICA,
The Isle of Scotland will be tried by frost:
King Reb will face an Antichrist so false,
That he will place them in the conflict all together.


There are only "two" quatrains that mention the
Antichrist specifically (X,66 & VIII,77).
There is only "one" specific reference to America
found in the quatrains (X,66).


The Antichrist's main target of destruction is
"America" (i.e., he will exercise his destructive
power through the realm of America).

Just asking because of your name, you don't happen to be the third antichrist, are you? Cuz I could forward you my resume, if you're looking for minions.

Scallions for garnish
PREPARATION:

Clean duck. Wipe dry and tie string around neck.
Hang duck in cool, windy place 4 hours.
Fill large wok with water. Bring to boil. Add ginger, scallion, honey, vinegar, and sherry. Bring to boil. Pour in dissolved cornstarch. Stir constantly.
Place duck in large strainer above larger bowl. Scoop boiling mixture all over duck for about 10 minutes.
Hang duck again in cool, windy place for 6 hours until thoroughly dry.
Place duck breast side up on a greased rack in oven preheated to 350 degrees. Set a pan filled with 2 inches of water in bottom of oven.

Ok Drmabus just when I though no one could be more obscure than Nostradamus here you come and shatter my convictions.

Since your hero and salvation, you know the one we are supposed to run to, does not always seem to be helpful with his predictions I will offer you one that is absolutely sure to be accurate and correct.

The days will pass and the many will suffer,
the powerful one earning glory but also hated by many,
the skies will darken and some will be afraid,
proof will be in the eyes of the beholder.


Ignore this at your own peril.

You have been warned!

What problems, specifically, do you have with THE MASK OF NOSTRADAMUS?
I think Mr. Randi pretty much showed Nostradamus to be a good doctor but a really terrible prognosticator, and anyone who attempts to bend his words to suit some 'prophecy' a fraud.

Care to discuss? Or just spew? I've got lots of recipes....

Somebody should tell that Nostradamus guy that his limericks are all a line short.

And not very funny.

At five and forty degrees, the sky will burn
Will cause the towers around the New City to shake
The sky will burn at forty-five degrees
Famine, fire, blood, plague, all evils doubled

The year that the brothers of the lily come of age
From the sky will come a great King of Terror
It will be seized and plunged into the Vat
Late and soon comes the awaited help



Nostradamus or Nostra-dumbass, people? Real or fake?

And you expect to "discuss" when you have already prejudged the issue and will not be swayed in slightest no matter how powerful the evidence? Under these conditions, discussion is an utter waste of time......

I'll entertain your evidence. Just show some.

Actually, we're probably one of the more diverse forums on the web.


Now, what was wrong with MASK OF NOSTRADAMUS, and what evidence do you have of Nostradamus' prophecies being true?

One of the advantages that the scientific process has over other methodologies is that the theories that have recieved provisional agreement in the scientific community can be, and have been, revised or refuted over time. However, in order to partake in the process of forwarding a hypothesis or theory is that one must follow the scientific method.

Edit for clarification: a proviso of the scientific process is that, if a theory has been given provisional agreement, the burden of proof is on those that are proponents of a different theory.

When they come around with the same old worn out, thousand times debunked, nostradamus junk, what's the point in rehashing it? They should be cut off at the knees immediately for not doing their own research.

Have you visited the links I have posted? Have you read what I wrote? Have you tried to UNDERSTAND what I said? Put simply, either Nostradamus is right or Randi is right, not both. And I have set out here to prove that Nostradamus was able to see unique and significant events in the future, especially for the modern age (i.e., SPACE AGE, WTC DISASTER, THE COMING PLAGUE, etc) all which would show that Randi's book is a lie......
