  • Prophesy does not exist becuase you can always attach an event to one after the fact, making it impossible to say if it actually came true or not.

  • I don't like to think about things like that, honestly. Who knows for sure? All we can do is live our lives and do our best.

  • Anyone who knows the future and could have possibly prevented terrible things from happening or even just warning about them and doesn't speak plainly or clearly is practically a criminal. It's not fair to say OH THATS what he must have meant when he was saying ***** ** * * *****. Anything can be "made to fit" AFTER the fact.

    I think he was a good fortune teller. For entertainment purposes only.

  • Personally Ithink the wording is vague enough that it could be interpreted to fit a variety of situations. I remember watching about the prophecies of Nostradamus and thinking that some of the prophecy fulfillments were a big stretch based on the wording. Who knows for sure though?

  • Very Intelegent Man... He COULD have been a prophet, but like all prophets there is no way to proove if he was really seeing things or just making an educated guess...

  • I think he was on some chemical assistance that was unknown at the time. Much like the Oracle at Delphi was "assisted" by the fumes coming from the ground under her tripod, Nostradamus was burning things in his room, then looking into the flames, probably inhaling god knows what....
