Michel de Nostredame (aka Nostradamus) was a 16th-century French philosopher who predicted many tragic events throughout history, including the Assassinations of the Kennedy brothers, the rise of Hitler, the defeat of Napoleon, and the unfortunate 9/11 terrorist acts. We don’t have many seers these days who can really predict the future. Nostradamus studied astrology and various “occult” sciences and used those to predict the future. Here is a list of 10 predictions that he made for the year 2016.
10. Obama: The Last President
Nostradamus predicted that Obama would be victorious in the 2013 elections, but he also predicted that Mr Barack Obama would be America’s LAST president. Does that mean that the time has come for the United States to pass the torch to some one else? Who will be the next superpower? China? Russia? North Korea? Nothing is certain.
9. Unusual Weather Patterns
In his writings, Nostradamus mentioned unusual weather patterns and natural cataclysms / disasters that will intensify further than they already are. He described the events as where ‘ Water shall be seen to rise as the ground is seen to fall underneath’. We are already seeing snow in the Spring time in many parts of the world. 2015 also saw the most frigid temperatures.
8. Unusual Planetary Alignments
Nostradamus also mentioned unusual planetary alignments and other astronomical type changes that will TRIGGER massive events on earth. I hope this does not mean another earthquake or tsunami.
7. Middle East On Fire
Petrol and Oil in the Gulf states in the Middle East will be set on fire, according to Nostradamus’ predictions for 2016. Things are heating up for the Presidential elections in 2016, I wonder if this is coincidental?!
6. Explosions in the Middle East
Many explosions will occur around the Middle East area, and Nostradamus said that planes will be falling from the sky in 2016. The Middle East has seen drastic changes and civil unrest the past 4 years. The Arab Spring has intensified civil wars in over 10 countries, including in Tunisia, Egypt, Bahrain, Somalia, Libya and Syria. We already saw the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 on Mar. 8, 2014. Another plane was almost torpedoed by a North Korean missile, 2 days before. Anything is possible.
5. End of the World
Nostradamus also made an ambiguous statement that is making us believe that Iraq war/invasion was the first major sign (for our timeline) that the world as we know it is coming to an end. But there’s been so many predictions and prophecies already, especially that of the Mayan civilization, and all of them never came true.
4. White House Games
He also stated the ‘White House’ has been playing war like games , and have set out plans to destroy the world…..starting with the Middle East, where it is like a game of chess to ‘them’. Tension between the two have never been easy, especially with the War on Terror and ISIS retaliations. Both Iraq and Afghanistan has not seen peace since Americans entered the countries to bring in “democracy”.
3.The Poles Will Melt
This is where many global warming scientists and scholars are getting their information from. Could this be happening? If you look at the high temperatures up North, you’ll probably believe that the prophecy will come true. However, the South Pole is still frigid cold and no drastic temperature changes have been noted. Global Warming scientists have always said that the North Pole is becoming warmer than usual, but nothing hasd ever been mentioned about the South Pole.
2. Fate of Israel
The fate of Israel remains unclear because of Nostradamus’ predictions. However, in paragraph #34 of the Epistle, Nostradamus states that Jerusalem might be assailed on all sides, and a Western naval force (from the United States and or other nations in the New World) will help Israel in fighting the forces of its future adversaries.
1. Russia Makes Peace
If the Russians are “not” allied with Europe and the West during the beginning of this war, Nostradamus states in the Epistle that a northern king from Aquilon (an allusion to Russia) will eventually help to set things right. The United States and Russia have never seen eye to eye, especially with the conflict in Syria. It will be interesting to see how this prophecy will play out. Could the Crimean War of 2014 lead to peace with Russia? I doubt that Russia wants nothing less than world dominance, but we will wait and see what will happen.
