Predictions of Nostradamus: From Obama to the AntiChrist
More Nostradamus and 2012, End of the World
What faith should we place in predictions of Nostradamus concerning a black president and the end of the world in 2012?
The answer is: none! But nevertheless, there are circulating on the internet some really idiotic but also possibly dangerous rumours, featuring some so-called "Nostradamus prophecies", the coming of the Antichrist and the End of the World in 2012. The theories are extremely stupid, but they get extremely dangerous too when you think of the lunatics who might be taking action, just because of that sort of rumours that are widely believed and that are promoted through a wide range of White Power websites. So, I thought, some debunking was needed. Take a look, for instance, at this YouTube video, made by EdgarMetro and titled ObaMABUSh.
Listen here to what Nostradamus really said... and in his own voice!
Nostradamus and the Treasures (or Secrets) of Orval
- Nostradamus and the Lost Treasure of the Bourbons
Did the French royalists during the French Revolution have made up some
- Nostradamus and the Lost Templar Treasure
Here is all the information you need, right out of the so-called prophecies of Nostradamus that are in reality a code, to start a true treasure hunt and find the Lost Treasure of the Knights Templar somewhere in the realms of the abbey of Orval, in B

"A telling documentary about the startling connections between the 15th century prophet Nostradamus and 9/11, Barack Obama, Bush, and the november elections," says EdgarMetro. In his video, EdgarMetro speaks again about Nostradamus living in the 15th century, but the prophet was born on 14 December 1503 at St Rémy in the south of France, so he lived in the 16th century.
According to this Nostradamus expert, the prophet has made over 25 correct predictions. This statement is followed by one of the quatrains of Nostradamus:
In the City of God there will be a great thunder,
Two brothers torn apart by Chaos, while the fortress endures,
the great leader will succumb.
The third big war will begin when the big city is burning.
Now, as has been pointed out on various sites, this isn't a quatrain written by Nostradamus: "More precisely, its attribution to Nostradamus is a hoax. The passage was lifted intact from a web page (since deleted from the hosting server due to overwhelming post-9/11 traffic) containing an essay written several years ago by college student Neil Marshall entitled "A Critical Analysis of Nostradamus." Marshall invented the quatrain to demonstrate — quite ironically, in light of its subsequent misuse — how a Nostradamus-like passage can be so cryptically composed as to lend itself to myriad interpretations."
This quatrain is followed by one that is only partly of Nostradamus, Century VI, Quatrain 97:
At forty-five degrees the sky will burn,
Fire to approach the great new city:
In an instant a great scattered flame will leap up,
When one will want to demand proof of the Normans.
EdgarMetro has a translation of his own:
At forty-five degrees the sky will burn from the World Centre.
Fire to approach the great new city:
in an instant a great scattered flame will leap up
when one will want to demand proof of the Normans.
The original French text goes like this:
Cinq et quarante degrez ciel bruslera
Feu approcher de la grand cit neuue
Instant grand flamme esparse sautera
Quand on voudra des Normans faire preuue.
New York is 40 43' degrees north of the equator so that doesn't match, but in the original French text there and in the "true" translation, there is nothing about a "World Centre" - this is a pure invention by EdgarMetro & Co. to get at least one match with 9/11. And what are the Normans doing here?
This quatrain is followed by Century I, Quatrain 87. It looks like a straight translation from the French original, but EdgarMetro has changed "centre of the earth" (centre de la terre) in "the World Centre" - again to have at least one match with 9/11:
Earthshaking fire from the World Centre (centre of the earth)
will cause tremors around the New City.
Two great rocks will war for a long time,
then Arethusa will redden a new river.
EdgarMetro now states Nostradamus predicted that the world will change in 2012 ("Change... Yes, we can!") and that all of the Mayan and Aztec calendars end in 2012, hereby suggesting that Nostradamus has predicted the End of the World in 2012. There is only one minor problem with this statement: EdgarMetro doesn't tell us where, when or how Nostradamus has made this prediction of "change in 2012". And there is a good reason for that: EdgarMetro has invented it, to get a match with Barack Obama and the End of the World.
Nostradamus warned us that there would come a "world dictator" called the AntiChrist, EdgarMetro says, and the next elected president will "precide over the coming of the AntiChrist". This statement is followed by a picture of Barack Obama, who has had "a sudden rise to popularity", is a great orator and a charismatic person who reaches the masses. Now it's time again for a Nostradamus quatrain:
The great empire will be torn from limb,
The all-powerful one for more than four hundred years:
Great power given to the dark one from slaves come,
The Aryana will not be satisfied thereby.
"Did Nostradamus predict the election of Barack Obama, the first Black President in the White House?" I wrote in an article. "Professor Eugene Randell, Deputy Director of the Smithsonian Institution Archives, declared that the Institute was holding some very rare Nostradamus manuscripts. One previously unreleased quatrain spoke about a "great empire" that would be "torn from limb" and a "great power given to the dark one from slaves come". The lines were eagerly copied and pasted on numerous blogs and websites, but all these "believers" forgot to mention (or didn't know) that the original article was published by The Daily Squib, the World's Finest (Satirical) News Source. Professor Eugene Randell did not exist and the previously unreleased quatrain definitely was a hoax."
EdgarMetro says Nostradamus prophesized "the name of the Antichrist as Mabus". But that's rubbish too. Nostradamus has never said a Mr. Mabus will be the Antichrist. In Century 2, Quatrain 62 he states that "when Mabus will die", there will be "a horrible undoing of people and animals". But the "true believers" of EdgarMetro don't believe these facts, only their own fiction: they take the last two letters from "Obama" and the first three of "Bush" and they get "Mabus". And who will be in the White House in 2012? A Black President, dammit!
On all sort of trashy White Power sites, a bunch of creepy details are added tot this "information". What is the zipcode of Chicago? 60606! Eliminate the zero's and you get 666, the Number of the Beast! And who lives in Chicago? Yes...
Now, this is for sure: the AntiChrist really has to be a moron, and his believers too, if it has to be that simple to find and/or detect him!
"Barack Hussein Obama = 666, the Number of the Beast" they are saying (and probably 666.666.666 others also).
This Absolute NonSense about the AntiChrist is here on the HubPages also:
- Is Barack Hussein Obama the Antichrist of the End Time ?
This guy says: "Obama rhymes with "Osama" and "Hussein" is the last name of the "Baghdad Butcher". They are both Muslims and types of the Antichrist. Many have named Barack Hussein Obama as the present day Antichrist!" - It's really that simple!
- And this is what it leads to: Osama Obama Shotgun Pool
This is the name of a sign a store-owner in Standish, Maine, is alleged to have put in his window, encouraging customers to place bets on an assassination date for president-elect Barack Obama. If that is Christianity, I don't want to be a Christian!
