I own a book, Die grossen Prophezeiungen des Nostradamus in moderner Deutung (The Big Prophecies By Nostradamus In Modern Interpretation), by Kurt Allgeier, Wilhelm Heyne Verlag, Munich, 1982, ISBN 3-453-01529-0.
Some research on the Internet showed me that that Allgeier guy wrote several books on the topic. Some are available in English too. In 1999, he published a new one covering exacty the same bull. Come on boy, you must have a very bad memory! After your book of 1982, in the course of 17 years, you should have realized you had been wrong in practically every single point. Stop writing. You already made way too many gullible readers make totally wrong decisions for their future. You are downright dangerous.

What raises the danger to a physical level is the fact that the very same guy also wrote a book, Die geheimen Heilrezepte des Nostradamus (The Secret Healing Prescriptions by Nostradamus). May your god help you if you use them.

Ah, but the key to it all is in the title of the book(s), viz "Deutung"/"Interpretation".

In much the same way that a clairvoyant will feed back to you, as "new", the information that they've actually extracted from you earlier, new Nostrodamus editions are the key to the whole nonsense! How else can one retrofit the nonsense to real-life events

We most certainly do Nil , however freedom of speech and democracy means a greater demand by the people for food - imported food - and thats where it gets tricky.

Weeeellll. Sometimes you have to sort the wheat from the chaff ..........
but seriously and not relying on his predictions, the point is that a very real danger of more than several countries that have relied on poverty to
control their population are coming to democracy (hopefully) and their demand for food will increase and i dont care how much Berner Rosti is in Migros bunkers, you aint going to be selling much of that to our non pork eating neighbours now are you?

I couldn't agree more. Nostradamus is pure chaff. And so are all those sel-anointed Nostradamus experts.

Allgeier is not the only one. I could quote quite a few more. They all are great at predicting things that already happened, and they all miserably fail when it comes to predicting the future. When they are right for once, it always is within the margins of plain statistical probability.

You seem to have issues with the US of A but I'm not going to sit here and defend America and all it's actions over the centuries for as mentioned above it is easy to look at past actions with hindsight, but are you going to tell me that Britain back in the days when it too was a world power that she acted totally altruistically in all it's dealings ?

Anyway... nevermind all that... I try not to get involved in political dealings here as ( as I have stated many times previously ) my primary reason for being here is to have a bit of a laugh.. and so far you have managed to provide a few laughs.

Re: Nostradamus and the current revolts

Predictions or plans?

How about Albert Pike's predictions (plans) as set out in his book Morals and Dogmas. According to him third world war in Middle East is necessary and inevitable.

Re: Nostradamus and the current revolts

what did Nostradamus say about the end of the Mayan calendar?
this might have been a large oversight on his part. Any prediction after late next year cannot happen.

So it's all twaddle.

Apart from the bit where he says, "the birds will sing as Kemet arises"....

ahhh... good coffee,

yes git please do, as long as that is easy for you to pronounce.

Shame then because I was sure the eduction system in southern England ( by which I personally mean anything south of Milton Keynes ) was better at that time. So I'll have to that it's just you and not the education system as a whole that failed.

Very brave of you to soldier on as you have with your limited education.

I'm proud of you git.

cheers,
