Nostradamus Writings Predict McCain Victory

CAP NEWS - "Conventional wisdom picks Obama. Nostradamus, four and a half centuries ago, picked John McCain," said Dr. Hubert Evans, professor of Renaissance Studies at Yale University and author of the best-selling "Nostradamus: Prophesize This!"

"Quatrain 78, Century X in particular seems to indicate that Obama had better not be measuring the White House windows for curtains quite yet, at least by my interpretation," said Dr. Evans.

The quatrain to which Dr. Evans refers - Quatrain 78 - is located in the grouping of stanzas known as Century X. Originally published in 1555 in Nostradamus' still-popular Les Prophecies, Quatrain 78 reads in full:

At the war's end: The Feeble Kept One will strike down the Night And his Imbecile Queen will rise from the snow Bedecked in finery and the pelt of a wolf.

Another bogus Nostronuttyness article like we had around 9/11. Quatrain 78, Century X actually states:

Sudden joy to sudden sadness, It will occur at Rome for the graces embraced: Grief, cries, tears, weeping, blood, excellent mirth, Contrary bands surprised and trussed up.

I did a search and can't even find the prophecy they quoted.

Q:78 (a. huffington better watch her butt !)

The Greek lady of ugly beauty,
Made happy by countless suitors,
Transferred out to the Spanish realm,
Taken captive to die a miserable death.

anyone remember the flap over this one? It has (ex post facto) been cited as a prediction of the loss of one of the Mars probes. :’)

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.

I respectfully disagree. I don't know the Quatrain #, but he sure called it on Clinton:

Between the Bushes of the Lone Star
Arose the Mediocre Leader
The head of a rotund woman in his lap
A hideous Witch by his side

If Nostradamus was looking at the future, it’s possible that in his visions he was seeing the NY or LA Times headlines.....medium bias.

Interestingly enough, almost a year ago, a psychic with a pretty good track record predicted that this year was “not Hillary’s year” and that whichever candidate chose a woman as VP would win.

Her prediction was posted LONG before anyone ever heard of Palin.

I’m seeing unprecedented prayer and fasting for this election.

I think God will have the last word.

I think McCain will win if folks continue to pray and GET OUT CONSERVATIVES TO VOTE.

I could see this as Palin (MSMs imecile queen)(sees Great Bear *Russia* from her backyard *Alaska*) assuming the presidency after McCain death or in 4 year.

Gets into a nuke war with Russia....the end.

Century X has 100 quatrains (no surprise there, eh?).

Here are the real 78 and 79:

http://www.crystalinks.com/quatrainscentury10.html

78
Sudden joy to sudden sadness,
It will occur at Rome for the graces embraced:
Grief, cries, tears, weeping, blood, excellent mirth,
Contrary bands surprised and trussed up.

79
The old roads will all be improved,
One will proceed on them to the modern Memphis:
The great Mercury of Hercules fleur-de-lis,
Causing to tremble lands, sea and country.
