Nostradamus’ Predictions Dire for the World

As the world seemingly goes crazy, Michel de Nostredame (most commonly Latinized as Nostradamus) who was born in 1503 in the Kingdom of France may have predicted even worse scenarios. More than 70 percent of his prophesies have come to pass to date.

Nostradamus worked as an apothecary before beginning school at the University of Montpellier. Although he hoped to earn a doctorate, he was expelled almost immediately when university authorities found out about his work as an apothecary, since it was a forbidden trade by university rules.

Nostradamus married in 1531, however, his wife and two children died after contracting the plague. This prompted him to continue his apothecary work, and he began moving away from traditional medicine, which at the time, was very crude, and began to study the occult.

Nostradamus eventually wrote a book of one thousand quatrains (a type of poem), for which he is best known today. It is believed that he would go into a trance state by staring at a bowl of water, to see the future. The book, entitled Les Prophéties, was published in 1555 and contains 942 quatrains that to this day, many believe have accurately predicted future events.

Fearing persecution from religious establishments, Nostradamus carefully wrote his quatrains in a way to obscure their meaning, and some believe he wrote them in such a way that only persons in the future could understand them.

One of his biggest fans was Catherine de’ Medici, the wife of King Henry II of France. She was a very powerful woman. She was so impressed with Nostradamus that she appointed him Counselor and Physician-in-Ordinary to her son, the future King Charles IX of France.

Some Nostradamus Prophesies that we have to look forward to and hope never come true:


“Few young people: half−dead to give a start. Dead through spite, he will cause the others to shine, and in an exalted place some great evils to occur: Sad concepts will come to harm each one, temporal dignified, the Mass to succeed. Fathers and mothers dead of infinite sorrows, women in mourning, the pestilent she−monster: The Great One to be no more, all the world to end.”


“Very near Auch, Lectoure and Mirande A great fire will fall from the sky for three nights. The cause will appear both stupefying and marvelous; shortly afterward there will be an earthquake.” Currency disaster? “The copies of gold and silver inflated, which after the theft were thrown into the lake, at the discovery that all is exhausted and dissipated by the debt. All scripts and bonds will be wiped out.”

The Antichrist?

“The antichrist very soon annihilates the three, twenty-seven years his war will last. The unbelievers are dead, captive, exiled; with blood, human bodies, water and red hail covering the earth.”

Pleasant dreams.
