The Prophecies of Nostradamus 
Four hundred years ago, Michel de Nostredame sat alone in a dark secret room studying the forbidden books on the occult. By his side stood a bras tripod and placed on that was a simple bowl of water. But the water shimmered and grew cloudy and from within depths came visions of the future.

Nostradamus was bornin 1503, he had a great interest in astrology sicne tender age. He studies medicine and healed many people stricken by the plague which was at that time anendemic in Southern France. After 1550 he produced a yearly Almanac and by 1555 he had completed the first part of his book of Prophecies that were to contain predictions from his time to end of the world.

In order to avoid prosecution as a magacian, Nostradamus writes that he deliberaetly confused the time sequence of Prophecies so that their secret would no be revealed to the non-initiate. Nostradamus dies in 1566.

Nostradamus method was divination not predictions.His major divination wereFrench Revolution(1789), Napoleon and Pius VII, Fates of Children of Catherine de Medici and Henri II, Second World War, Battle of Waterloo (1815), Kennedy Assassinations, Hitler and France, Ayatollah Khomeini, America in Vietnam, Middle East, Shah of Iran, Jewish Influences and the list goes on and on.

His visions were right but a few had missing links in it which latter after much research the blanks were filled in. Some of the visons were not precise and created a cloud on most readers but we have to understand that these are visions.

American in Vietnam is a celar example of his uncertainty of his visons. He could not see who started it but later said it was because of China and the East. He also added that the country on the left side of the map would be the looser.

Well theres has been a lot of controversy over his visons and work but nothing concrete ccould be said to discourage the readers for reading his work.
