Did Nostradamus have any predictions that might relate to the current economic crisis?

Of course it’s all clear in hindsight, but I just wondered if anyone knew of anything that might relate.


  1. I have no doubt that there will be self proclaimed “experts” who will point to passages in Nostradamus and say they relate to this current crisis. I like to just sit on the fence as far as his stuff is concerned. The problem is that Nostradamus’s writings are all fairly criptic, do not give any dates and are not set in any sort of chronological order. Thus it is too easy to interpret passages as one sees fit. As such we’ll never really know if he did have this great gift or if he was a nutter, a con or just having fun.

  2. Did Nostradamus predict anything folks say he did? That right there is the real question. Do I believe he made predictions? Yes. But his predictions were properly vague so as to be interperted any number of ways. There is absolutely no proof any of the interpertations are true despite what people claim. This is due to the fact that they can be interperted in any number of ways and there is always going to be some disagreement as to what is the correct interpertation.
    In the 2000 edition of the Old Farmer’s Almanac they had an article on how to become a prophet in six steps. Using this article, I’ve used this example this year.
    “In the eighth year the favorite shall win the race.”
    What does this mean and how do the six steps pertain to it? Well, first let’s look at the steps.
    1. “Predict the Past.” Basically, if it’s happened in the past it’s likely to happen again. Things like wars, famines, presidential elections, horse races, marathons, assassinations, major companies merging, medical discoveries, etc. have all happened in the past and can all happen in the future.
    In my example the element from the past is a race. It could be a presidential race, a horse race, an Olympic race, a race for best picture, etc. But all that is known is that it’s a race. Which bring’s up step two.
    2. “Avoid Specifics.” You want your predictions to be open to interpertaion, so never say exactly what is to happen and when. Think about as we were approaching the year 2000 and the number of folks who were predicting that at midnight on January 1, 2000 all modern electronics were going to crash, essentially sending us back to something resembleing the stone age to us. And yet absolutely nothing happened.
    In my example the most specific you get is that there will be a race in an eighth year that will be won by the favorite. But when is the eighth year? 2008? 2018? 3008? 3018? Or maybe 2013 starting the counting in 2005? There’s no clue when exactly the eighth year is. Also the favorite isn’t named and depends as much on the race. What is the race? Oscars? Kentucky Derby? Tour de France? American League Penant Race? Presidential Race? The specifics themselves are not specific enough for me to worry. This leads in to step five.
    3. “Predict the Obvious.” Pretty much similar to the first step. And can help you choose things from the past to use for making your prediction. The example used in the Almanac is the moon turning the color of blood. We do on occassion see a blood red moon, so it’s obvious that since that’s happened in the past it can happen again.
    In my example the prediction of the obvious is the eighth year and a race. There’s always an eighting year, as discussed above. And when was the last time that there wasn’t some kind of race somewhere in the word.
    4. “Leave Home.” No, this doesn’t mean physically leaving home. Basically, don’t go running to your family, friends, and neighbors as yourself making a prediction. Claiming you’re someone else from far away can make you more mysterious and have folks more likely to take you seriously if they don’t know you. Around your family, friends, and neighbors you can claim you heard it from your alter ego, just as long as they never learn that alter ego.
    This is one of the six steps I don’t worry about in my example because thanks to the net folks reading it don’t know who I am or where exactly I live. They may well figure out my country of origin, but I’ve effectively “left home” by posting on the net.
    5. “Leave Youself an Out.” Again, avoid being too specific. You don’t want people to say “Hey, you said this will happen and it didn’t happen.” Remember the Y2K example I used on step two? There was no out for those who said it would happen, but for the few who said it might happen the out was “I never said it would happen, just that it could.” But more than that you want to be able to say “Are you sure this is when I meant it would happen?”
    In my example, my out is the eighth year and the race. Again, when exactly is the eighth year. I never mentioned so my out is that the eighth year has not happened yet. And again, what race am I refering to? Because there are so many different types of races my out could be any one of them.
    6. “Predict Intresting Stuff.” People are more likely to pay attention to predictions of stuff their interested in. So make a prediction of something folks are going to be interested in an they’d pay it attention and quite likely pass it along.
    In my prediction I chose a race and the favorite in the race winning it. No matter the type of race you’re talking about there’s always going to be plenty of folks interested in it. And folks want to know if the favorite will indeed win the race or if they wil be upset in their attempt.
    Now take a step back and look at Nostradamus’s predictions in the light of these steps. You’ll find that he delibertly left things open to interpertation and was often poetic in what he wrote. Folks have said he predicted a giant bird crashing into a building as proof he predicted 9/11. But isn’t it possible that was also proof of July 28, 1945 when a B-25 crashed into the Empire State Building? Things are open to interpertation, and it’s often after a specific event that things are interperted to be linked to that event.

  3. My life experience was heavily related to Nostradamus. My belief is that I was born with the ability to understand The meaning to why humans are hear and what happens at death. My first name Jon is on a book that says one male It says Go Jon C in script and thats my name and initial. It further goes on to explain the woman with the Bow which relates to me she is my lost one. There was a picture of a lion at sunset that I saw at a sunset one day driving. My belief is that what ever was out there did not want me to understand it because I have experienced prophecy my whole life. and I was close to stumbling upon some very controversial secrets. I was the One male on this planet that understood at the time of my enlightenment my prospect to transform the planet, Unfortunately I caught a snag, and I almost understood what to do I was sooo close yet just a few seconds threw me off. I was preparing to remove myself from the public eye purposely cause I gained super wisdom powers. I would like to say that I have seen the number 23 over 10,000 times in my life at times that should have not happened and that In fact scientist need to realize that it is not something the brain looks for or unconsciously finds. It is the connection or portal to another world or something way more unimaginable.
