    I believe Nostradamus's predictions are a matter of interpretation. His manner of writing evokes imagination and coincidence and hind-sight.
    Fascinating reading.

    Too many of the cultural references he used have been lost for anyone to interpret his writing in a meaningful way today.

    Too few of his predictions have come to pass for the rest to be useful.

    Is it not the ability to fore-warn that is the point of a phrophet?
    How many of Nostradamus predictions fore-warned where heed was taken and the prediction not being fulfilled?

    I had a tough time with Nostradamus when studying him. I found his quatrains extremely complex. As interpreter's have said, anagrams, old language's etc.

    I do believe their was some truth in some but quite rightly, they rely solely on the interpreter.
    I still find him a fascinating subject and have always been intrigued of the third anti-Christ he has spoken of. According to interpretation, the first was Napoleon and the second, Hitler.

    I
    magine knowing the secrets Nostradamus never intended humanity to decipher.
    Why did he bother making them then?

    Predictions that only make sense only after an event are a bit pointless. How come all those american soothsayers only saw 911 after the event?

    The trouble is you get a lot of gullible people that really buy in to this sort of stuff and think we are now living in the end of times and would like nothing better than to see it all come true.

    I just always found him to be very vague. It's easy to make anything "fit" after the event has already happened.

    I think the third anti-christ that he speaks of, comes from Scotland, is an ex hippy, haggis botherer, sporran fiddler, bearded jock-strap, live's in Fife and doesn't read the Daily mail.

    Re: Nostradamus.. Fact or fiction?

    I have two questions.

    Firstly, were these predictions intended to forewarn, or were they set in print in order that people could look back on a catastrophe and what he'd written and say "wow that Nostradamus knew that was going to happen, look, he predicted it". Because if they're to forewarn they're impressive but if they're to show off they just show he was a total jerk.

    Secondly, where can I look to find a written statement of "Nostradamus predicts that X will happen in the future between this and this date" where X did happen between this and this date, thereby confirming a foretelling as opposed to a retrospective bit of showing off? Preferably I'd like quite a lot of these, all of events which have happened, all of someone reading Nostradamus and writing that it was due and saying when.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    To believe that I'd need some evidence of the change in intention recorded before the event.

    Too many different interpretations exist to "prove" whatever the interpreter wants for me to take it seriously.
