Did Nostradamus Predict the End of the World?
Nostradamus predicted a great many things, and most of it is open to interpretation. Some claim that he predicted the end of the world a number of times, the 1999 is the most commonly known end of the world prediction, but he also claims the end of the world is coming in 2012, I sure hope not.
Nostradamus lived from 1503 to 1566, and in that time he predicted, depending on who you ask: the Kennedy assassination, and Hitler. Many believe that Nostradamus just wrote a whole bunch of subjective garbage that is now being stretched to fit with some current event. Many others will point out how accurate Nostradamus was with his predictions. It is a difficult question to answer and the debate is continuing. It is also true that some of the things Nostradamus predicted did not come true, in line with the question; Nostradamus failed to accurately predict the end of the world in 1999, although we did have quite the scare with Y2K, and who is to say our calendar isn’t off by a few years.
His 1999 end of the world prediction included this writing:
In the year 1999, and seven months, from the sky will come the great King of Terror. He will bring back to life the great king of the Mongols. Before and after War reigns happily (PON, p. 417).
