Skip to comments.Nostradamus quatrain 10.72 - deception and fulfillment
Posted on 02/02/2005 6:53:25 AM PST by Truth666
Most people have heard of Nostradamus, the 16th century prophet who was able to see into the future.Almost 500 years after his death, Nostradamus´s books are STILL selling, so there are plenty of people who must think Nostradamus was on to something.
Never before in the History of Mankind did so many people expected the furfillment of a prophecy at a given moment as in the month of July 1999, the solar eclipse of August 11, 1999 and the end of the millenium.
Nostradamus Prophecies comprise the only piece of literature other than the Bible that has been continuously in print since 1555.
But how did Nostradamus do it? How could he predict the future? It´s actually pretty easy once you understand what he was doing.
First of all, using one of basic brainwash techniques. The same technique used for example by astrology: a combination of suggestion (THE basic brainwash technique), cryptic description and known facts.
He simply wrote everything in the form of cryptic four line poems (Quatrains) and let people interpret them after something happened. Here´s an example of one of these poems that some people believe foretells the rise of Hitler
"Beasts ferocious with hunger will cross the rivers,
The greater part of the battlefield will be against Hister.
Into a cage of iron will the great one be drawn,
When the child of Germany observes nothing."
Now your first impulse after looking at that may be "Histler, Germany, battlefield? Holy moly, he just predicted the Third Reich!" Well "Histler" actually was a region near the Danube river. Beyond that, what else do we have here except a bunch of randomly throw together sentences that could be interpreted a dozen different ways? After the fact, it´s easy to pick one passage out of hundreds in an attempt to prove Nostradamus´s prescience. But look at it like this; could anyone have predicted the rise of Hitler, in say 1920, based on what Nostradamus wrote? Of course, that wouldn´t have been possible. All of Nostradamus's prophecies (except Quatraine 10.72) are meaningless until something has actually happened and you can look at Nostradamus's words retrospectively.
Anyone not brainwashed should be able to figure after spending 10 minutes perusing his material.
In order to measure the intensity of brainwash under which a society is and how brainwashed that society is, a good unit is the degree of success of such techniques. Just look at how much horoscopes you find (is there any MSM women magazine without them?) and how many people (especially women) read them ...
This is the only exception to the golden rule of the deception technique described above. A precise date is given: the seventh month of 1999, i.e. anywhere from July 14 through 13 August 1999 in the gregorian calendar that was introduced after Nostradamus wrote
"In the year 1999 and seven months,
From the sky will come a great King of terror.
The great king of Angoumois will be resuscitated,
Before and after Mars reigns by good fortune."
Four known observations and facts caused Nostradamus in this case to risk giving a precise date:
At first sight it seems incredible that Quatrain 10.72, the only prediction that Nostradamus ever risked, became true.
In face of the extreme degree of brainwash and the great expectations associated with this prophecy, how can you be surprised that God intervened one more time to help humans, to let the prophecy fulfill in the time frame specified?
Still before the end of the millenium, it should be clear how the prophecy was fulfilled. And yet, even today, five and a half years later, I realised that there's still no comprehensive explanation of these events, as you can check for instance with the google search used as URL to this article.
The sun will rise
The air will warm
The sun will set
The air will cool
Many of Notradamus' predictions were written after the event.
I dont know,he predicted my hangnail
Aw! A bunny with a puppy AND a pancake on its head.
Such riches so early in the day!
Some days are good
some not so good
A thread will beginnst among others;
Aunt Jemima will bow to the hare.
Aw geez not the moose again.
Moderation is called for the Ad Men.
But other than astronomical events what is predicted. I've always prefered the spy interpretation of Nostrodamus, that his quatrains fall into two categories: cover BS, coded messages for assassinations by the opposition in an ongoing royalty skirmish in France.
ok, who's the King of Terror?
Wife p.o.'d keep hands off.
Is "Groundhog Day" becoming the new "April Fools Day"?
You know, I once read through Nostradamus just to see. I find it funny that he is held up as a great prophet because he just wrote random stuff that is so general in can be applied just about anywhere.
10.72 predicting a solar eclipse, you know that they could do the math back then. There were tables of eclipses already published.
