Michael de Nostradame, or Nostradamus, was a reputable practicing physician, astrologer, astronomer, as well as seer. He was born in France, St. Remy de Provence on December 14th, 1503. Nostradamus became quite popular after his Almanac publication was published in 1550, which consisted of a collection of 12 predictions- one per month for one year.
As much as he was one of the most celebrated psychics ever, his early predictions were not readily accepted instead they were countered with mixed reactions. However, he later earned himself followers due to his predictions coming to pass. Outlined are just a few of Nostradamus’s predictions that actually came to pass.
The reign of Hitler
Nostradamus is believed to have accurately predicted Hitler’s reign. His exact words were, “From the West of Europe, a child will be born to poor people. With his tongue he will seduce a great troop. His fame will increase towards the East.” Followers believe that these words were a clear description of Hitler’s rule over Nazi Germany.
The Hiroshima atomic bomb
Nostradamus is also believed to have predicted the Hiroshima atomic bomb when he said, “Near the gates and within two cities, there will be scourges the like of which has never been seen. Famine within plague, people put out by steel, crying to the great immortal God for relief.” The United States of America dropped an atomic bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Those that survived the bombing suffered physical pain, poverty, and famine just like Nostradamus had predicted.
John F. Kennedy and Robert F. Kennedy assassinations
Nostradamus’ followers prove his ability to foretell the future by pointing out his accurate prediction on John F. Kennedy and Robert F. Kennedy assassinations. His exact words were, “The great man will be struck down in the day by a thunderbolt. An evil deed foretold by the bearer of a petition. Another falls at night time.” The great man according to Nostradamus was President John F. Kennedy who was taken down by a bullet. Thunderbolt would have been the best definition a scholar during his time would have used to describe a bullet. The evil deed referred to the death threats John F. Kennedy received before his assassination. The statement another falls at midnight referred to another Robert F. Kennedy, who was later killed on June 5, 1968 in the evening.
As much as Nostradamus’ works have been countered by scholars all around the world, his works still remain one of the most cited works ever. It is very feasible that Nostradamus was one of the most profoundly honored psychics the world has ever witnessed.
