Nostradamus Predicted the Terrorist Attack on New York-Fiction!
Summary of eRumor:
Summary of eRumor:An eRumor is circulating that quotes what it says are predictions of the famous 16th century astrologer Nostradamus that seem to anticipate the attack on New York by terrorists on September 11. The prophecy is said to have referred to the month and year, the location, and a reference that could be interpreted as referring to the twin towers of the World Trade Center in New York.
Nostradamus experts say this not accurate. The Truth:
Part of the eRumor seems to be based on a writing of Nostradamus that goes like this:
"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." (quatrain 6-97)
There is no reference in the original writing to the place called "york" and no reference to "the year of the new century and nine months."
Other parts of the eRumor seem to be based on the following text, "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."
That quote is not from Nostradamus, however. It's from Neil Marshall, a student at Brock University who created the text as part of a critique he wrote about Nostradamus.
The bottom line is that the eRumor is not a authentic quote from Nostradamus.
A real example of the eRumor as it has appeared on the Internet:
Nostradamus’ prediction on WW3:
“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…” ” In the city of york there will be a great collapse, 2 twin brothers torn apart by chaos while the fortress falls the great leader will succumb third big war will begin when the big city is burning” –
He said this will be bigger than the previous two.
2001 is the first year of the new century and this is the 9th month. New York is located at the 41st degree Latitude.
