Perhaps I should say: some people have written up their interpretations of Nostradamus prophecies suggesting there are actually specific predictions for 2021. In my opinion (and I’ve written a few books on Nostradamus prophecies and consider myself among the few experts that doesn’t warp and sensationalize what he wrote) France’s greatest seer did not write anything specific for 2021. The most I could say is that Nostradamus warned us that a third world war between Islamic nations (led by Iran and Turkey) would ally with China against the Christian West. The war will see a few cities nuked – including New York and Rome – and the whole war will end around late 2028 or early 2029, followed soon after by a civilization ending pole shift. One other point of interest: America does not come to Europe’s defense for several years – presumably because it has been weakened to the point where it can’t help right away. Given what we see in 2020, an America paralyzed by civil war, economic collapse, plague, or an enemy first strike – are all within the realm of possibility.
Many other people’s interpretations (IMHO) are not in the realm of the possible; but for entertainment’s sake I’ll let you decide whether you can take the following seriously or not:
The first prediction at this website is – “A Russian scientist will create a biological weapon and produce a virus that can turn humankind into zombies, and we will all be extinct in the near future.” The writer also says: “Pope Francis Will Bring People Closer to the Church” but rumors from the Vatican in recent days suggest that Pope Francis will resign before the end of 2020. At least the site acknowledges that “Muslims will conquer the EU” and that “we shall see the water rising and the earth falling under it” which is an important part of what happens during a pole shift.
The next site I looked at for alleged Nostradamus predictions for 2021 starts with “There will be such stress upon the Earth that its surface will crumble in places like a hard piece of clay. Some pieces will be forced against the others. This will cause certain areas to be pushed higher while others will disappear underwater” – another way to describe the effects of a pole shift (though I expect it in my lifetime, I don’t expect it in 2021.) More points for “More importantly, Nostradamus foresaw a massive confrontation and a war…. some people believe he’s talking about World War III” even though I do not see anything in Nostradamus’ writings to suggest 2021 as the official start date. The rest focused on COVID-19, other diseases, and cures.
Another web site suggests that artificial intelligence will surpass human intelligence in 2021, sea levels will rise, space tourism will grow immensely, there will be a huge naval war between two previously allied countries, and of course “The Economic Collapse of 2021” – which sounds more realistic to me.
Most other sites are imitations or duplicates of what I noted above. If you took these alleged predictions seriously 2021 would be the most horrible year in history and we would suffer not just WWIII and pole shift but plague, asteroid impact, cyborgs, economic collapse, and zombies. As bleak a future as Nostradamus actually portrayed, it won’t be quite as bad as the articles above portray events for 2021.
Feel free to do your own research on this. Some of the best books in my opinion are:
Nostradamus and the Islamic Invasion of Europe
Nostradamus: the Next 50 Years: Covering the Forthcoming Invasion of Europe
Nostradamus and His Prophecies
Now many of his predictions came to pass for 2020? ***Hmmm…
Well, since he didn’t have any specific predictions for 2020… 100%? Or just 0 out of 0 – but I do believe he had certain themes for the near future and that he did actually see things we can expect within a few years.
Nostradamus was vague and cryptic in his predictions but he did come close on the approximate timeline. The psychic Baba Vanga who died in 1996 predicted the world will suffer cataclysms and disasters in 2021 and a “Strong Dragon” (China?) will seize humanity. Did she get lucky with her prediction or did she score? She also predicted that the 45th President will have a mysterious disease. go deaf and have a brain trauma. Pretty good guess to from an old woman that died in 1996 if that all comes true! A large fire ball was seen over China last night that made impact and several more fire balls were seen around the globe. What we are witnessing is a spiral into the abyss leading to the last 3 1/2 years before Jesus Christ returns for His Millennial Kingdom on Earth.
Continuing the theme from the previous post:
But what would be a point of staging a fake alien invasion?
The usual science-fiction theme to such an invasion is uniting the humanity.
But as many conflicts are currently being cooked, I see no reason for such an invasion, except, of course, deflection from a real alien invasion…
BTW, it is interesting that a theme of aliens taking sides among humanity is absent from sci-fi literature, and yet taking sides is common in the human history (eg. Cortes in Mexico).
Cortes invasion of Mexico is actually a study how people could behave if ‘gods’ (the Spanish were taken for them) invade. The answer: the ruling class would try to strike a deal, the masses would probably join ‘gods’ (depending upon their relationship with the said ruling class).
Someone could also take a note that a religion is the best available tool for the ‘divide et impera’ policy.
JtA, if the precursors of a pole flip were becoming generally noticeable, and WWIII (along with other distractions) wasn’t cutting it, then alien invasion might help provide a superior distraction.
The possiblity of getting the entire planet generally believing in an alien invasion is pretty much demonstrated by the Covid19 psyop.
‘The possiblity of getting the entire planet generally believing in an alien invasion is pretty much demonstrated by the Covid19 psyop.’
That is the great remark, Zod.
Resistance seems to be not just futile, but impossible, as the following (real) story from few weeks ago will illustrate:
‘A German man tried to ram with his car the chancellor office in Berlin. The police denied any terror attempt; the man was put in a psychiatric hospital.’
You see ? It means it is even impossible to be a terrorist if this role has not been planned for you. Here in Europe terror can be only islamic.
The only role left for people could be an individual martyrdom.
Pretty strange, so many talks about Apocalypse now but we don’t see any candidates for martyrdom…?!
That was about Matrix, now something about Orwell.
I have waked up today and, like Winston Smith remembering a certain newspaper article from the past, I have instantly remembered the book about apocalyptic literature of the 2nd and 3rd century C.E I read years ago. And so who is the beast has become immediately clear to me.
Now, unfortunately, the libraries are mostly closed….and some things are only in hard copies. ‘La fine del mondo antico’, more data i can’t give as you must make some effort in search for truth…. so at least the rules of the game…
Talking about early Christianity, it may be worthwhile to remind that it was very different religion to what we have now: whereas early Christians were obsessed with both purity and spiritual side of life, the modern ones moved towards rightful enjoyment of the flesh, so to say.
But the main group of sins in the past were apostasy and sex. That Christ canceled the primal sin, one often interpreted as the sin of sex (‘knowing each other’) merely offered to a Christian an opportunity to become a saint, i.e. to live a life without sin, by wiping a plate clean by creating tabula rasa. That in itself is very hard, as it is clear from a small number of saints or remarks like ‘the way to the kingdom of Heaven is the way through a needle’. And yet is rather clear from Scripture that only saints and martyrs have a chance of eternal life with the Father.
How from all that the modern Church came to the idea that having a lot of children is good, that sex is a gift of God (a poisoned gift, if at all) I have no idea. Flesh is flesh, namely bad.
Apocalypse of course deals mainly with the sins of apostasy, which every false claim about Christ is.
Be that as it may, Christianity, the religion of the Age of Pisces (started in 0 C.E) is coming to the end with the end of Pisces.
Many parables are currently interpreted to stress the mercy of Christ, whereas they could be interpreted as stressing almost universal sinfulness of the mankind, e.g.the story about adulteress.
I think the most important aspect of salvation in Christianity is God’s grace – that we are imperfect and do not deserve or earn our way into the perfection of heaven, we accept the golden ticket that is mercifully and gracefully given to us anyway, should we understand and accept and try our best and repent and demonstrate this acceptance through words and behavior and works.
I think there is some misunderstanding about God’s grace. It is certainly not a check in blanco to sin to your heart’s desire. Well, just ask a contemporary Christian: are some sins unforgivable?
In general, it refers to the suspension of the power of primal sin (the sin of all people); in particular, it secures the discretionary powers of God. As an example of the latter, look at Cain: those who will harm him and his descendants will be punished much more severely (7-fold) than Cain had ever been (he just got an exile for a murder).
The mercy aspect could be overdone in interpretation, since such was a need of believers. Now ask why such a need..
The said Cain story is another example of the hereditary concept of sin, here one falling upon all Cain’s descendants. Since Christ is all about individual responsibility, I would wage to say that he removed/suspended all such generational curses.
Anyway, it would be rather ridiculous to think that Christ died, for example, for a sin of X cheating his teacher too, though.
When do you think there will be a magnetic pole shift and then the end of the world, in about what decade?
Although there are some signs pointing to the 2020s, and I previously saw signs pointing to 2019, several knowledgable people expect it in or around 2046. Not that I know for certain.
I would very much like it if it happened in 2020, but it looks like it will have to wait in the period between 2030-2050. Then there will be a change of poles and possibly the end of the world.
