Never mind Nostradamus - Harry Belafonte is a True Prophet:

Pope Gregory XIII
|By Don_Walsh on Monday, September 17, 2001 - 09:05 am: Edit|
I think you will find that the present system is the Gregorian calendar instituted by a Pope Gregory not by an emporer, although what he replaced was the Julian calendar, i.e. Julius Caesar.
Which Gregory, I'd have to look up.

While looking double checking what Nas actually said, I picked up a book, something along the lines of Nostradamus: Predictions and Prophecies. I will post the actual name of the book tomorrow when I bring it back in to work. Anyway, so far I have found Quatrain 49 to be accurate to the letter, and am still looking for the others.
Here is the funny part. In the book, there is a section devoted to the debate of several researchers as to whether Nas used mind-altering substances, ie, cannabis. Also, on the page was a Terminus poster, the one the clown / jester, with the caption, Alcohol is also considered a mind-altering substance. I just thought that was funny, an Absinthe add in a book written about Nostradamus. Maybe I will scan it in.

Heh, and the reason August has 31 days, is because Augustus couldn't stand to have one less day than Julius.
No wonder Leo's are known for their egos.

Nothing to do with Nostradamus but as this thread is now a discussion on calenders.
Going way back, originally the calender had 10 months (e.g Sept=7, Oct=8, Nov=9, Dec=10) until Julius Ceaser and the Emperor Augustus inserted the months of July and August (or so the story goes), named after themselves (they must have had a liking for summer) and screwed up the tidy system. Those Roman emperors sure had big egos.

So the bottom line is there is no way Nos could have mentioned the ninth month in relation to what we know as September?
That is what I thought. I usually don't put much stock into predictions, and i am not about to start.

I did a little looking around and found out that The French Republican Calendar was adopted in 1793. Done and done.
|By Tavarua on Friday, September 14, 2001 - 09:47 am: Edit|
I can tell you that the Gregorian Calendar, the one used today in the US and in Europe was not officially their, England and it's collonies, calendar until 1751. I am not sure about France, but this is most likely the case. Anyone, anyone.

I usually would not respond to this question because I do not know, but I am a sucker for redheads, so I will say this, I honestly have no idea. Does that help?
(Sorry everyone for all the postings, but I finally have a calm moment and am going to abuse the shit out of it.)
|By Panks on Friday, September 14, 2001 - 09:22 am: Edit|
Did the ninth month even exist when Nostradamus was around?

Nostradomus reads like iron maiden lyrics!!!And you know nothing sounds better in a primer camero than maiden!!!!!

Well, even if it`s in French, it`s old fucked up french ... I barely understand the original version.

Puh-LEASE. This got trotted out for Saddam, this got trotted out for Quaddafi, this is tired old BS and bad translation at that.
Nostradamus is so vague that people can and do read into him whatever they feel like.
|By Leela on Thursday, September 13, 2001 - 12:43 pm: Edit|
I never know what to believe...I received an email saying that the message indicating that Nostradamus had predicted this was a hoax. Not having a copy of the original Quatrains and not being able to read French, I really have no idea what to believe.

"Is being a kill-joy your day-job, or just a hobby?!?"
He's a teacher, right? ;-)

Morrigan, my last blurb was directed at what Wolfgang wrote.

Add some knowledge of history.

Hey Chonger - 'twas no chain email I recieved (I abhore the stuff!). It was an email sent from a friend with as much tongue-in-cheek guffawing intent as that with which I posted it here. Is being a kill-joy your day-job, or just a hobby?!?

If you want to foresee the future, it's better to learn about international politic...

Tav - ah well, like so many things nowadays the original version is horribly bastardized. But it's still creepier the way it was e-mailed to me...

I could drop several old article from Pravda into Babel Fish, machine-translate them into English, and out would pop some Nostradamus prophecies.

It's nice to see the contents of a chain letter/email hoax posted here.

Good Old Nas....like the old dictum goes "It is never hurtful for the seer to be too vague."
|By Tavarua on Thursday, September 13, 2001 - 10:55 am: Edit|
This is a cut up, intermingled interpretation of what Nas really said. There have been so many variations on the truth itís rediculious.
Here is the actual prophecy:
Century 1, Quatrain 24
A cité neuue pensif pour condemner,
L'oisel de proye au ciel se vient offrir:
Apres victoire à captifs pardonner,
Cremone & Mantoue gras maux aura souffert.
The new city contemplating a condemnation,
The bird of prey offers itself to the heavens.
After victory pardon to the captives,
Cremona and Mantua will have suffered great evils.
Century 1, Quatrain 87
Ennosigee feu du centre de terre,
Fera trembler autour de cité neuue
Deux gras rochers long têps feront la guerre,
Puis Arethuse rougira nouueau fleuue.
Earth-shaking fire from the center of the earth.
Will cause the towers around the New City to shake,
Two great rocks for a long time will make war,
And then Arethusa will color a new river red.
Century 6, Quatrain 97
Cinq & quarante degrés ciel bruslera
Feu approcher de la grand cité neuue [neufue]
Instant grand flamme esparse sautera
Quand on voudra des Normans faire preuue.
At forty-five degrees, the sky will burn,
Fire approaches the great new city,
Immediately a huge, scattered flame leaps up
When they want to have verification from the Normans.
Century 9, Quatrain 92
Le Roy voudra en cité neufue entrer,
Par ennemis expugner l'on viendra
Captif libere faux dire & perpetrer,
Roy dehors estre, loin d'ennemis tiendra.
The king will want to enter the new city,
Through its enemies they will come to subdue it
Captives liberated to speak and act falsely,
King to be outside, he will keep far from the enemy.
Century 10, Quatrain 49
Jardin du monde aupres du cité neufue,
Dans le chemin des montaignes cauees,
Sera saisi et plongé dans la Cuue,
Beuuant par force eaux soulfre enuenimees.
Garden of the world near the new city,
In the path of the hollow mountains,
It will be seized and plunged into the Vat,
Drinking by force the waters poisoned by sulfur.
many people took the new city to be new york b/c it is located between 40 and
45 dergrees latitude. but this is what it said, nothing about york or two
metal towers and metal birds and things. take it for what its worth.
|By Morriganlefey on Thursday, September 13, 2001 - 10:50 am: Edit|
"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
The third big war will begin when the big city is burning"
(FYI - New York is located at the 41st degree latitude.) Not that I'm much for believing ancient prophecies, but I love a good creep-out!
