Yes, Ash - I was informed about this by my friend too!However, he mentioned that Nostradamus did not predict when the world is going to end.He said somewhere it in his book, there is a mention of the war going for about 27 years and eventually the *turban* group would be wiped out from the world.Looks like his predictions are coming true!!!

Oh God !!
I really don't want that to happen !! I have a good number of very close friends, who belongs to the *turban* group..
Let the prediction be true, but let the turban group mean not the religion that world suspects today, instead let be the religion of those cowardly, dangerous human beings... that religion of terrorism and distruction... 27 long years to clense them off from face of earth ???..
God help us !!

In almost every tragedy there seems to be people saying that "Nostradamus predicted this." While I must admit that quite a few of his predictions are uncanny, they are also incredibly hard to interpret (so that the Church of his day did not lable him a heretic and kill him). This predictions were in the form of four-line poems called Quatrains which were grouped in groups of 100 called Centuries. (Nostradamus wrote 942 Quatrains, so the 10th Century only had 42 Quatrains in it). People will write Nostradamus-like quatrains after the fact and present them as the real thing.
The first Quatrain is certainly one of Nostradamus's. I have found this one before (although my reference does not provide Century/Quatrain).
If anybody could provide the Century and Quatrain for the second quatrain listed, it would be appreciated. This one sounds suspiciously like a made-up quatrain.

I wish that to be a made-up version then! Because I don't want any thing that bad to happen, and also I don't want to see Nostradamus proven wrong!

I've seen the following quote going around
"In the year of the new century and nine months,
From the sky will come a great King of Terror...
The sky will burn at forty-five degrees.
Fire approaches the great new city..."
but ...it's not an accurate quote, it's a composite of several.
"Century 10, Quatrain 72
In the year 1999 and seven months
The Great King of Terror will come from the sky,
He will bring back to life the great king of the Mongols.
Before and after Mars [the God of war] reigns happily."
and...
"Century 6, Quatrain 97
The sky will burn at forty-five degrees latitude,
Fire approaches the great new city
Immediately a huge, scattered flame leaps up
When they want to have verification from the Normans "
So you can't take too much stock in it

[I wrote this before seeing Craig's post above - here I'm referring mostly to the first post in the thread, not Craig's].
Even if the quoted passages are real - i.e. written by Nostradamus long ago, rather than by some hack yesterday - it could simply mean that bin Laden (or whoever) read the passage at some point and took ideas from it. Though I'm inclined to think the latter parts were simply made up.

Thank you. That explains why I had seen the City of God quote before, but could not find it in any Nostradamus verse.

Now I am confident that actual predictions of Nostradamus are as mutilated from its original version, as WTC today...
I am optimistic that this world is civilized enough to not to plunge in to another world war and large scale massacre of innocent lives, just because of some squandrals, who are also blind by their beliefs.
I believe such a great nation like USA and its brave people will take this pain with courage, and after locating the right culprit, wipe out him and his group from this planet, in a model way, which world can follow in later anti-terrorist operations..
We (India) also have business to close with so many... If everything breaks loose, if my country decides to do its share of this cleansing, I will be more than happy to join any type of Government force and to work in the forefront of the action, if required!

Nostradamus predicted this... No1 cares at this point about who predicted what where when how... There are lives exhaled on the face of earth... Most importantly lives which were enjoying the freedom side of life. And leaving millions horrified in terror... If it wasn't for our past leaders who lacked that instincts of punishing terrorist nations... I would still be walking arround WTC with my freinds looking like outcasts...

Hmmm... interesting!
- Date of the attack: 9/11 = 9 + 1 + 1 = 11 or 911 ?
- September 11th is the 254th day of the year: 2 + 5 + 4 = 11.
- After September 11th there are 111 days left to the end of the year.
- Twin Towers - standing side by side, looks like the number 11.
- The first plane to hit the towers was Flight 11.
- State of New York - The 11th State added to the Union.
- New York City - 11 Letters.
- The Pentagon - 11 Letters.
- Afghanistan - 11 Letters.

I heard on the radio this morning that Nostradamus books are being checked out of libraries faster than they can be checked back in. On average libraries reported 20 to 30 calls a day on Nostradamus books.
It is so amazing that people will take things in black and white and just believe them, regardless of source. A lady here at work was talking to people last week about that and waving a copy of one of the made up quatrains that she had gotten off of the internet and saying how amazing it was it was that he predicted this. I direected her to a couple of sites that people had posted here and haven't heard from her since

One thing no one has pointed out so far.
Nostradamus lived in an age where these sort of writings were considered unholy and to voice an opinion meant going against the church .
He wrote everything in a language people could not understand easliy.
This made him write in codes and esoteric scriptures.
This is the reason that people in the modern times tend to deduce things from his Writtings AFTER the events have already happened. If it was possible to find out the cause and time before they happened .Thats half the problem solved.

In other words ...we assume what he could have meant and we are not certain what he actually wanted to say.
