Nostradamus: Century 1, Quatrain 40:

The false trumpet concealing madness
will cause Byzantium to change its laws.
From Egypt there will go forth a man who wants
the edict withdrawn, changing money and standards.

Is Nostradamus predicting current events in Egypt? 

“The false trumpet concealing madness”

Could the “false trumpet” be the Islamic call to prayer, which hides the decay of Islamic society under dictatorship?  I call it using religion to justify the madness of central control of a population by an elite.  Another interpretation of the “false trumpet” could be it signified the campaign of misinformation and news censorship used in an attempt to conceal the madness of the crowds of protesters.

“Will cause Byzantium to change its laws.”

Byzantium was the Eastern Roman Empire.  Does this mean the Christian West will change its policy (laws) towards Egypt and the Islamic world in general?  However, if “Byzantium” instead represents the Ottoman Empire that ruled Constantinople during the lifetime of Nostradamus, then the change in Egypt will cause the nations of the former Ottoman Empire to change their laws.  This would be the Arab world.  Very big changes are ahead!

“From Egypt there will go forth a man who wants
the edict withdrawn, changing money and standards”

This speaks for itself: it is happening.  It is a call for CHANGE!  An economic change (money) and a change of ethics (standards).  But who is the man from Egypt who will make this change happen?  This remains to be seen…perhaps the new leader of Egypt?  Or maybe someone even greater.

Expect updates!



It appears Mubarak is on his way out of Egypt’s leadership.  This article from the Christian Science Monitor caught my attention with these words:

President Mubarak, bowing to pressure at home and apparently from the US, said Tuesday he will not seek reelection in September. Dissatisfied, protesters look to Egypt’s military to take their side.
Egypt’s Mubarak won’t run again, but protesters look to speed his exit

What is curious is the United State’s role in facilitating the change.  Has today’s “Roman Empire”, the USA, changed its policy (law) and quietly pushed Mubarak out of leadership?  Change has come to Egypt, with a shove from outside world powers.  Now the question is who will be the new man from Egypt?  From Egypt there will go forth a man who wants the edict withdrawn.  Will Mohamed ElBaradei become Nostradamus’ Man From Egypt?  Or is there another individual who has yet to appear?

    Rumor has it that the former head of the International Atomic Energy Commission, Nobel Prize winner Mohammed El Baradei (I hope I got the first name and spelling correct!) is under house arrest after speaking out in favor of the people who have risen up against the Mubarak government. Is he the man who “will go forth” from Egypt? The Muslim world is, of course, central to the petroleum industry, and oil is translated into “petro-dollars,” which could be the meaning of “money” in this quatrain. The question on the ground, however, may not be the meaning of a Nostradamus quatrain, but the effect of the Bush Doctrine of democratization for the region. Will it have an adverse effect on the West, particularly the United States? Will the price of oil shoot up to $200USD very soon?

  2. David Says:

    Hi Rick,
    We don’t know who the man from Egypt is yet. The best we can do is connect the dots before it happens. Prophecy is weird. I thought an attack on Iran was in the works, who would have thought the transformation of the Islamic world was at hand in Egypt, in a way nobody would have predicted. Except Nostradamus.

  3. stevmap Says:

    ‘The false trumpet concealing madness’ Egypt is a secular country, I would have thought the false trumpet is Mubarak’s speech last night .
    And if we don’t take it too literally could the last sentence not require ‘the man’ to be from Egypt at all.
    What I mean is those who govern us see what happens in Egypt and realise it is time to govern us fairly, now if that is the case, making the population pay for the banker’s mistakes has destroyed the world’s confidence and economy and isnt fair, are we about to see the power of people just wanting a fair chance in life turn the opinions of the western governments as to how to actually govern????

    “We have backed the wrong horse for 50 years,” said former CIA officer Michael Scheuer. “To think that the Egyptian people are going to forget that we backed dictators for 50 years, I think is a pipe dream.”

    Hi Stevmap,
    Good points. There are great changes happening right now. Let us hope that it is for the better. Only time will tell.

  7. Larry Lesh Says:

    We’ve backed the legal government of Egypt which we should do by Intl law. We did this with the Shah of Iran even though we may not agree with that nations choice. However, they are at that time the legal government.

    Old Nostra is an interesting prophet and his predictions drive great discussion. Things will change in the Middle East as people seek what all people seek, freedom. It comes at a price and I’m not sure they’re willing to pay for it.

    BTW, Oil will be gone by the end of the century for most purposes replaced by alternative energy. Oil rich nations will need to find another source of revenue unless Nostra is right. Goodbye in 2012?

  8. David Says:

    Hi Larry,
    It feels like the Islamic world is on the cusp of a great change. It started in Tunisia and moved to Egypt. I hope Egypt does not turn out like Iran, replacing a dictatorship with a theocracy. Let us hope Nostradamus’ man from Egypt is a nice guy and not a fiend.

  9. Phil Says:

    Let’s all call a spade a spade. This is the beginning of the end of the world as we know it. See you all on the other side…

  10. Orcus - watcher of the Human realms Says:

    Dude you’re wrong, the Byzantine Empire was the succesion of the “Eastern Roman Empire”, Not the western! it has nothing to do with it.

    Be also careful with your historical facts, cause “the Holy Roman Empire” was in reality Germany+Bohemia+Italy+Burgundy+corsica+sicilia+sardinia.

  12. David Says:

    Hi Orcus,
    Yes, you are correct. Thanks for catching that. That was a typo on my part. It is curious that Egypt was once part of the Byzantine Empire. Today Egypt gets a lot of foreign aid and this has helped prop up their government. It’s like today’s version Empire still “owns” Egypt.

  13. mike Says:

    I miss having my Nostadamous book at my side. It’s in a safe place. So many people rewrite his stuff. It is nice to have the complete work where it is obvious to tell the fakers from the legit words. I bought mine right before prince charles was suppose to be murdered. Then his wife dies in an odd situation. I kind of remember the egypt thing in there also. Oh well who cares we all die someday anyways. You either know God and understand this and that or are blind and irrational.

  14. David Says:

    Hi Mike,
    Nobody can really know if Nostradamus is referring to current events, the riots and uprising in Egypt, but the possibility remains he might. In time we’ll see if this is so. I just hope everything turns out ok. We do live in dangerous times.

  15. Jose del Per? Says:

    Many many people at the streets: christians, muslims, etc. All the people united to reach true democracy and freedom in Egypt. Other countries are preparing to do the same against dictatorship. It is said CHINESE PEOPLE is getting ready to follow the egyptian path but first egyptians expect Mubarak is off, totally off the government.

  16. Eliza Says:

    Nostradamus or no, it is a major event, wonderful & horrifying at the same time. Anyone with heart & a true feeling humanity can see:
    That these are courageous people fighting off half a century of oppression (historically more, considering some of those pharoahs.)

    That they are christian, muslim, young, old, poor, rich & not evil people declaring Jihad as USA would have us believe since 9/11.

    That the scariest ones are Mubarak & his thugs, & the USA who have backed that regime for 30 years.

    ‘Made in USA’ is stamped on the teargas bombs they are hurling at the muslims at prayer while their fellow christians protect them.

    Hilary Clinton stands up & says USA has decided it’s all too terrible & is now on the side of democracy & the human rights of the protesters – while less than a week ago Obama was saying Egypt must keep order.

    And where is their American ally when the people need help?

    Attacked by first police, thugs from secret police, artillery, now defending themselves against 6000 criminals apparently released from jail AND their megolamaniac president who cannot let go of his power, will sacrifice any number of citizens to achieve an unachievable end.

    We certainly do live in interesting times. As an Australian living next door to the biggest Muslim nation in the world, Indonesia, I am disgusted by Australia’s stupid alliance with USA & the threats it exposes us to, the $$$$ spent on American wars & the US-run detention camps where we detain refugees escaping the bedlam Australia helped create in Iraq, Afghanistan.

    Excuse me for venting. Maybe will drag out my old Nostradumas book.

  17. David Says:

    Hi Eliza,
    Yes, we are in the midst of world changing events. Will Egypt be transformed with a move to democracy? Will this spread to other Middle East nations? We can only hope. Nostradamus wrote about the Middle East in a number of his quatrains. It may be time we reviewed what he had to say. He might offer clues to what lies just ahead.

  18. Snippy23 Says:

    A long time ago, the UK partwork, ‘The Unexplained’ asked me to research articles about predictions of the First and Second World Wars that had been published before those wars began. There was very little to write about, and nothing from Nostradamus. Only after the events were supposedly relevant quatrains identified.
    It looks like the same situation here – we’re just making stuff fit after the event, and what sort of use is a prophecy that never predicts anything?

  19. David Says:

    Hi Snippy,

    Yes, Nostradamus’ predictions are vague and details are invisible until after the event occurs. I believe Nostradamus had genuine clairvoyance and clairaudience, but his abilities were quite imperfect. Yet, if only a fraction of his quatrains contain true clues for the future, then his words are worth examining. We shouldn’t take them too seriously either, since he was often wrong. An example of an accurate prediction:

    On January 4, I interpreted Century 8, Quatrain 10 as connecting the mass bird and fish deaths, the massive floods in Australia and the solar eclipse, all which occurred at the same time. I suggested they were signposts, omens for the last line: “a foreign nation defeated”. I speculated we’d have an attack on Iran. I was off on that. Instead we might have the overthrow of Egypt’s government instead. Who would have guessed?


  20. Vernon Says:

    Please ref to Conversations With Nostradamus. Dolores Cannon of Ozark Publishing. I do not remember the exact book that this particular Quatrain was mentioned in, but the fact of who this is cannot be too far off base. I quote then “From Egypt there will go forth a man who wants the edict withdrawn, changing money and standards”
    This is none other than the Third Anti-Christ who, tho NOT Egyptian, DOES and has resided part of the time there. The call for the Gold backed Dinar is the change in money. The Standards are the loss of the US influence to the ME (long overdue!), and AWAY from the false U.S. Dollar backed Corporate powerbase (BTW..I am a U.S. citizen but well travelled so aware personally of the many corruptions caused by this). Power to such an evil is given over only during and thru severe hardships to the peoples, no different than the same corrupted Soul rose to power in 1930′s Europe. This evil thing (NOT human) seeks only to expand such hardships, prejudice, and hatred. Look then to Libya to be next folks, Bahrain, Dubai, Iran, then ever closer to Mecca itself. This move to a form of Islam that is against the Holy Quran principals will expand, because of the Wests’ ignorance but mostly corrupt lack of caring all for the insane unending thirst of crude oil, which brings this nexus of events on us all. We were ALL warned!!!
    Those here that would pray for reason and civility to be the rule, it is in honor. And those that do hold to a higher principal for all can overcome some of this troubles; but not all. We chose to Incarnate in this difficult time to either be to the good or to improve from past error. I do pray the citizens of Egypt all the best in developing for themselves the best path. What they do now is as Patriots that they are, risking ALL. They deserve the opportunity as all peoples do to determine destiny themselves without outside pressures, especially NOT from American Cartel who knows and adores the darkness in the depths of their ranks. He will one day turn on them as well, making War. God help us all when he takes Isreal by guile.

  21. David Says:

    Hi Vernon,
    Some interpretations of Nostradamus say he predicts a third Anti-Christ. Nostradamus scholars suggest the first Anti-Christ was Napoleon, the second was Hitler, and they presume a third Islamic Anti-Christ. However, Christian end-of-times prophecy suggests the Anti-Christ will be the leader of the European Economic Union, a pseudo Christian. Who to believe? I suggest we are projecting our own opinions with this. I take it one quatrain at a time.

  22. jimmy Says:

    “The false trumpet concealing madness” – is an easy one, that would be a reference to the mass media, ie television,radio and the printed word.

    The question then is what trumped up story “will cause Byzantium to change its laws” ?

  23. David Says:

    Hi Jimmy,
    I agree the trumpet could be the media. I wonder if Byzantium represents the United States, the current world power/empire? If so, then the U.S. is being forced to change its law/policy towards Egypt, as this story suggests:

    Analysis: The US moral conundrum in Egypt


  24. Mike Says:

    Interesting! I hope that everyone’s Sunday was great and I hope that they have a great week! I also hope that Egypt will find the peace that it deserves!

  25. Don Says:

    The Nostradamus prophesies are so vague that one can pretty much interpret them as one chooses.

  26. David Says:

    Hi Don,
    I’d agree with you up to a point. There is a lot of speculation with his stuff. However, I feel Nostradamus had a number of predictions that came true in the past. Enough so where we can wonder if he is still relevant today. I think every generation will read their own current events in his quatrains.

  27. Tim Says:

    It is not about oil. It’s about food. Speculation (False Trumpet concealing madness)in the commodities markets have caused such a rise in the price of food throughout the world that it is about has began to bring the masses to the streets for change. (laws and standards)

  28. Tim Says:

    Tell us about the man in the blue turban

  29. David Says:

    That is a good interpretation. We are getting a lot of great ideas from you all who are commenting. We have a prediction that fits on many levels.

  30. Jose del Peru Says:

    Watch this!!!

  31. David Says:

    Orson Welles introduced the idea of a guy in a blue turban in his movie documentary about Nostradamus (The Man Who Saw Tomorrow). Supposedly the blue turban guy is the third antichrist. I don’t imagine any self respecting third anti-chrsit would actually wear a blue turban.

  32. Tim Says:

    Desert peoples of Africa and elsewhere have long used the turban to keep sand out of their faces. Members of nomadic tribes have also used turbans and white kaffiyeh, while Palestinians wear a black to disguise themselves. And sometimes, the color of a person’s turban can be used to identify his tribal affiliation from a distance across the dunes. In some parts of North Africa many men wear a turban of a very light blue color.

  33. Tim Says:

    Could this be the man in your Quatrain that comes out of Egypt just a thought. I think we will soon gets some clarity on who this man is.

  34. David Says:

    I did not realize that about turbans. I only recalled the blue turban from Welles movie. I appreciate your thoughts and everyone who offer their comments. All your insights are a huge part of our collective commentary on Nostradamus.

  35. David Says:

    The “Man From Egypt” will be revealed soon. My queston is this. Will the change in money/standards be for the beter or worse? Change is a double edged sword. I think it will be for the better. But I always harbor doubts too. The people of Egypt are smart people, and the future is now in their hands. I pray a new leader will be worthy of them. I beleive that is what Nostradamus predicted. Change for the better. Away from the false trumpet.

  36. Tim Says:

    Change always comes at a cost to someone. I guess if it is for the better or worse depends on who you are and how it effects us all in the long run. Who or what fills in the gap created by removing the current regime and how will one of the largest militaries in the world be utilized? Could be the begining of a new democratic era or it could be the begining of WWIII or even Armageddon. I guess we are all going to bear witness to history as it is being written.

  37. Tim Says:

    This is the Quatrain I was referring to. There is that reference to Byzantium once again.

    Quatrains – Century IX
    The Blue Turban King entered into Foix,
    And he will reign less than an evolution of Saturn:
    The White Turban King Byzantium heart banished,
    Sun, Mars and Mercury near Aquarius.

  38. David Says:

    The revolution of Saturn around the sun takes 29.5 years. Mubarak became leader of Egypt October 14, 1981. That is 30 years, roughly the revolution of Saturn, which is intriguing. I can’t figure out how a blue turban would be associated with Mubarak. He is a secular leader, not very tribal. Yet Mubarak was an Egyptian air force officer, and I assume blue is the color of their military uniform. Could a turban be a metaphor for a king’s official dress…either a military uniform or a president’s business suit? As for the white turban, perhaps a white turban symbolizes a religious ruler? And blue secular? Not many leaders “rein for a revolution of Saturn” so this might refer to Mubarak, but the rest of the quatrain eludes me so far.

    I had an idea. What if Mubarak goes into exile…in France? Foix is in France. The Blue Turban King entered into Foix, And he will reign less than an evolution of Saturn: If this happens it will be too strange. If this happens, what does “The White Turban King Byzantium heart banished” suggest?


    Quatrain 73- Century IX
    The Blue Turban King entered into Foix,
    And he will reign less than an evolution of Saturn:
    The White Turban King Byzantium heart banished,
    Sun, Mars and Mercury near Aquarius.

    Also of interest, on February 17 2011 the Sun, Mars and Mercury will be in Aquarius. That is just around the corner!

  39. Tim Says:

    Brother I don’t know but they are a little more powerful than to just be written off as vague and invisible. What do you make of this one?

    Quatrains – Century V
    The Arab Prince Mars, Sun, Venus, Leo,
    The rule of the Church will succumb by sea:
    Towards Persia very nearly a million men,
    The true serpent will invade Byzantium and Egypt.

  40. David Says:

    I have to think about this one. There was talk about a million man protest in Egypt, but it didn’t reach that size. This quatrain does not strike me as being related to the current protest, but more a military action. Tme will tell.

  41. Jenessa Marcacci-Dortch Says:

    Many prophisies are coming about that can not be ignored. Is it the last days of the world as we know them, Or, is it just a coincidence? Seems to me that the reality of what is to come is something that we all need to sincerely be aware of and not ignore. The world and the works of the world are changing at a rapid rate. To ignore the truth is ignorance. Many of the worlds population wants to deny that prophicies are being fullfilled. To be honest within us all, there comes a time that we all must be realistic in the fact that the time is near. Life as we know it is changing at a very rapid rate. Life as we know it will never be the same.

  42. Anthony Says:

    @ #38 DAVE:
    I researched Mubarak’s uniform and it matches up…
    Fully dressed in blue. Even his background for all press conferences are in blue:×0.jpg

  43. Andrew Earl Singer Says:

    The Messiah (using the Internet) will return to Cairo and defeat the Antichrist (person not computer literate) in the battle of Armageddon (way of the word). Satan (all that is bad) will be put into the Abyss (where hatred reigns in the Soul of Mankind) for 1,000 years, known as the Millennial Age. After being released from the abyss, Satan will gather Gog and Magog (Abrahamic Religions) peoples of two specific nations from the four Corners of the Earth. They will encamp surrounding the “holy ones” and the “beloved city” in Cairo. Fire will come down from God out of Heaven and devour Gog and Magog after the Millennium, and the Devil who deceived them is thrown into Hell where the Beast and the False Prophet” have been since just before the 1,000 years. *A Religious rising will occur that will be the unifying force of all Religions due to the internet.

  44. David Says:

    Hi Anthony,
    Thanks for those links to those pictue! That picture of Mubarak in his blue hat…wow. I am going to post that photo in the post.

  45. David Says:

    Hi Andrew,
    Bible prophecy is certainly a topic in itself. Do the predictions of Nostradamus have any relationship with bible prophecy? Some people think so. Nostradamus understood the bible and it is possible he took some of his ideas from the bible.

  46. Tim Says:

    worth mentioning here is a prophet from the 20th Century. His name is Edgar Cayce (The Sleeping Prophet) His predictions have about a 90% batting average and it is possible that the other 10% just have not happened quite yet. He predicts aroung 2012 that the world will go thru some catastrophic changes…One of his books is titled “EARTH CHANGES” He moved his Holistic Hospital to Virginia Beach, VA in the 1920′s and it is still there and functioning very well. He said that this would be one of the areas where the land could support human life after these changes.Cayce died in the late 1930′s but not before predicting that they would find the “Dead Sea Scrolls” WWII, Bimini Roads and so many others to numerous to mention here. He has claimed that underneath the SPINX we will find a chamber with all of the solutions we seek as mondern people and the the secrets of our accestors exist at that site. he is worth reading up on. I find him as amzing of a man as Nostradamus. Just as Nostradamus real claim to fame was in medicine and is credited with cleaning up the plague. Edgar case is considered to be the”Father of Holistic” medicine. His “World Changes”are extremely interesting if you are looking for answers for the very near future.

  47. David Says:

    Hi Tim,
    I haven’t studied Cayce so I can’t say much. But I’ve heard an interesting view about his prediction of a shift in the earth’s crust. Cayce predicted the poles would become warm because of this global shift. Some suggest Cayce didn’t fully understand his vision. Instead, what he saw was the consequences of global warming and not an earth shift. Cayce might have misinterpreted his own vision. I believe this happened to Nostradamus as well. Clairvoyants don’t always fully comprehend their visions and then try to apply their limited reasoning to them.

  48. Ryan Says:

    I’m not trying to be a grammar hound here but wanted to make sure people Googled the right name if they were interested in what you were talking about…

    The guy you’re talking about is Edgar Cayce. Thanks for sharing about him…he’s an interesting fella.

  49. David Says:

    You are correct! Cayce it is! I shall correct the spelling.

  50. Tim Says:

    From Egypt there will go forth a man who wants
    the edict withdrawn, changing money and standards.

    David, Maybe this could be the man that will go forth from Egypt. Lets watch what he does with his new found power over masses of citizens.

    Wael Ghonim’s popularity in Egypt is growing as he joined anti-government protests on Tuesday for the second day in a row.

    Ghonim, Google’s head of marketing for the Middle East and North Africa, took part in the protests on Jan. 25 when they began, but was taken into government custody on Jan. 27 and held until Monday.

    The Cairo native, who was living in Dubai before the demonstrations began, was kept blindfolded during his 12-day captivity, he said.

    Once freed, Ghonim sent out a couple of messages on Twitter, gave a quick interview, returned to Tahrir Square in Cairo, which has been the center of the protests that Tuesday entered their 15th day.

    The protests have called for many government reforms, but most of all, the removal of President Hosni Mubarak, who has been in power for about three decades.

    As reported by Alexandra Zavis on The Times’ Babylon & Beyond blog, Ghonim took an opportunity on Tuesday, before a crowd of thousands and with a microphone in hand, to call for Mubarak’s ouster.

    Many in the crowd said they were inspired by Wael Ghonim, who gave an emotional television interview Monday night in which he sobbed over those who have been killed in two weeks of clashes between protesters and security forces.

    Ghonim, Google’s head of marketing for the Middle East and North Africa, administered a Facebook page that helped spark the uprising against President Hosni Mubarak’s oppressive regime.

  51. Tim Says:

    My guess is Feb. 17 will be a major event day in Egypt and I am not clairvoyant. That would be another mark in time written done by Nostradamus and this one we can possibly see before it happens. Stay tuned and hold on to your Spinx because I think this ride has just begun.

  52. David Says:

    That is a idea about Ghonim. He would bring a reformed approach to Egyptian politics and economics. He would be for change. It is hard to know what will happen…all we know is things are happening very quickly.

  53. David Says:

    We may need to start looking at other quatrains that might be involved with the current situation in the Middle East. So far there may be three:
    Century IX – Quatrain 73
    Century I – Quatrain 40
    Century VIII – Quatrain 10
    If events turn out as big as it appears, there may be more.

  54. Tim Says:

    Here is somthing of interest. This 1st century Bishop predicted each Pope accuratly up thru the current Pope and one shy of what he says will be the final Pope. They made him a Saint.

    Quatrains 25
    Century V (Archdise?)

    ST. MALACHY the last popes and the end times.
    St. Malachy, (d. 1148) Irish Bishop and Seer, produced an accurate list of future popes which began with Pope Celestine II in the year 1143. His list consists of a single line which gives a clue to the characteristics of each pope. From this list of 112 popes there are to be just 2 more after Pope John Paul II who passed away on 2 April 2005. His predictions regarding the popes have been for the most part pretty accurate regarding the identifying characteristics that each line reveals. St. Malachy doesn’t give any predictions or information about what happens after the last pope. According to some other seers, we will have arrived at the end times.

    Here are the previous five popes from Malachy’s list.

    106. Pius XII 1939 – 1958 Eugenio Pacelli
    Pastor Angelicus (An angelic shepherd)


    107. John XXIII 1958 – 1963 Angelo Gueseppe Roncalli
    Pastor Et Natua (Pastor and mariner)


    108. Paul VI 1963 – 1978 Giovanni Battista Montini
    Flos Florum (Flower of flowers)


    109. John Paul I 1978 – 1978
    De Medietate Lunae (Of the half moon)

    Note: This pope who was unpopular with the curia, lasted only 34 days (which is about one moon cycle) and died suddenly of unknown causes. His body was cremated within one day without an autopsy. This was and still is controversial, since popes are usually buried within the walls of the Vatican and are never cremated. The suddenness of this action has led to much speculation about a political conspiracy.
    There are 3 quatrains found in Nostradamus Prophecies that fit the circumstances surrounding the death of this pope


    110. John Paul II 1978 – Died April 2, 2005 Karol Josef Wojtlya
    De Labore Solis (From the toil of the sun)

    This pope has been identified with unceasing hard work, having visited practically every country in the world. He has traveled in access of 3/4 million miles in promoting the faith. He was the first non-Italian pope in 450 years. John Paul II is responsible with bringing an end to the communist regime in Poland. This initiated a domino effect within other eastern European communist controlled nations which quickly followed shortly after. No longer able to sustain itself, the Soviet Union fell away from the negative and inefficient economic structure of Communism and we have what is now Russia, the Ukraine and other nations that are independent and mostly free.


    The Current Pope

    111. Benedict XVI – The New Pope Joseph Ratzinger was elected the 265th pope on April 19, 2005 a few days after his 78th birthday.
    (The glory of the olive)
    The olive branch represents peace. Will he play a role in bringing the religions together and furthering tolerance during his office? Within 24 hours of his election, Islamic and Jewish religious leaders suggested just such a role for him. Hopefully, he can lead the religious world to recognize and focus upon the commonality of their belief in the same God rather than their differences
    Perhaps through the implementation of tolerance we can look to a future where people stop justifying the killing of one another in the name of God. Let us see what the future will bring.


    In the future

    112. The LAST POPE!
    (Peter the Roman) “In extreme persecution, the seat of the Holy Roman Church will be occupied by Peter the Roman, who will feed the sheep through many tribulations, at the term of which the city of seven hills will be destroyed, and the formidable Judge will judge the people. The End.”

    Thanks for the input. I’m aware of St. Malachy’s prophecies. Ratzinger is an old guy, so we will definitely see if Malachy’s prophecy comes to pass in our lifetime. What could possibly cause a worldwide disaster that would disrupt the world order and create chaos? My reading of the bible’s Book of Revelation suggests the earth will get hit by an asteroid one day:

    Revelation 8:8 the second angel sounded, and something like a great mountain burning with fire was thrown into the sea; and a third of the sea became blood,

    A burning mountain falling into the ocean? Then Revelation describes the sky darkened and fire around the earth…like the extinction level event that killed off the dinosaurs. Let us all hope this does not happen in our lifetime!

    The old roads will all be improved,
    One will proceed on them to the modern Memphis:
    The great Mercury of Hercules fleur-de-lis,
    Causing to tremble lands, sea and country.

  57. Tim Says:

    To make an attemp to answer your question of what or who could possibly cause a worldwide disaster that would disrupt the world order and create chaos? To numerous to mention. Yellowstone sits on a massive lava field it is due to erupt in the very near future.It would be castasstropic. There are astroids ou there that have not been discovered. The blue star. nuclear arsonals on submarines that can stay at sea for years.Natural Earth Changes, Ice Age, an meteor field, the loss of the earths magnetic fields, the force that fed Nostrdamis his information. Quick climate change. just to name a few. There are many candidates for that hand of “GOD” coming down from the sky. My question is who knows about it and who is trying to give us the heads-up?

    Quatrains 8 – Century I

    How often will you be captured, O city of the sun ?
    Changing laws that are barbaric and vain.
    Bad times approach you. No longer will you be enslaved.
    Great Hadrie will revive your veins.

    Heliopolis (Greek: ??????????, “City of the Sun” or “City of Helios”; Egyptian: ?wnw; Arabic: ??? ???, Ain Shams, “Eye of the Sun”) was one of the oldest cities of ancient Egypt, the capital of the 13th Lower Egyptian nome that was located five miles (8 km) east of the Nile to the north of the apex of the Nile Delta. Heliopolis has been occupied since the Predynastic Period,[1] with extensive building campaigns during the Old and Middle Kingdoms. Today it is mostly destroyed, its temples and other buildings were used for the construction of medi?val Cairo; most information about the ancient city comes from textual sources.

  59. David Says:

    Yes, Century I Quatrain 8 might be related! Cairo is a city in the sun. The Egyptian people’s uprising was because of the self-serving (vain) laws of the oligarchy. The Egyptians have freed themselves from political enslavement. Very good, it certainly fits the series of predictions about Egypt. It seems a very optimistic prediction about Egypt’s future. Let’s hope it comes to pass! Mubarak resigned today, Feb. 11. Let’s hope whoever takes over are an agent for true change for the better, and not another dictator.

    Concerning Great Hadrie…could this be a reference to Roman Emperor Publius Aelius Hadrianus (Hadrian)? “Great Hadrie will revive your veins.” I have to think about this one.

    The false trumpet could be the social media Google/Facebook. They are part of the Technosphere talked about in the Mayan prophecies and credited with this revolution sparked by one man; Wael Ghonim. As I interpreted the Mayan oracles for today’s date 2/11/11 and Ghonims gateway 12/23/80, they are EXACTLY synchronized in Destiny. I think the man coming out of Egypt that Nostradamus speaks of is Google Executive Wael Ghonim. The social media is indeed going to change the face of currency.

  61. David Says:


    You have a great point! Nostradamus did not understand modern technology. When he tried to explain technology he called them “talking beasts”. He did not fully comprehend tanks or submarines or airplanes. How then to describe something as arcane as social media? A false trumpet might be how he described a way of speaking without words. I am intrigued by that idea.

    It would be great if Ghonims became the Man From Egypt. I’d vote for him if I were from Egypt.
    It feels like synchronicity at work. And today’s date feels so significant. 2/11/2011. Almost the reverse of 9/11/2001. What a glorious day!

    I hope the people of Egypt have their Internet and social media back, and perhaps they will discover what Nostradmus predicted about their recent plight. We’ve had an amazing day.

    How about changing money means dollar is no longer the world’s reserve currency as have been discussed widely lately ( I have some links on my blog)
    Maybe the new president elected is the choice of people not a puppet of the West and will have something to do with that?

  63. David Says:

    Change is a two-edged sword. Change can be good or bad. My instinct tells me this will be for the better. It has the feel of good karma about it, like when the Soviet Union collapsed and Eastern Europe gained its freedom. This has the same scent.

  64. shirley heckman Says:

    I fear that the “edict withdrawn” refers to the
    peace agreement between Egypt and Israel. This
    would bring about major war in the region. Israel
    has massive military strength and does not hesitate
    when it comes to defending itself.

  65. David Says:

    Hi Shirley,
    You may have a point. Other quatrains seem to suggest a future war in the Middle East. Democracy can be unpredictable. Hopefully the new rulers of Egypt will be sensible people and not demagogues.

  66. Kyle Says:

    Hi this was very fascinating to read but I think what if this peace treaty is signed will it not be broken in 3 and 1/2 years like predicted in the bible?

  67. Kyle Says:

    And also I heard of an invasion of the eu?

  68. Arvind Says:

    The blue turban referred to by Nostradamus is none other than the Prime Minister of India , Manmohan Singh , who always wears a blue turban . He is still enjoying a tenure of 7 years continuous rule , only to be bogged down by a series of mega scams bankrupting India . The Opposition have staged a huge anti-government campaign , which will soon result in his ouster . The campaign , that begun in India and recieved a huge media coverage has resulted in a revolution taking place in Arab Countries . The saturn’s revolution and change of phase of other planetary movements match perfect with Indian Astrology . The white turban refer to the cap worn by muslims and thus the refer to the unrest in Arab World

  69. David Says:

    Hi Arvind,
    Hosni Mubarak resigned when the Sun, Mars and Mercury were in Aquarius. And he reigned for 29 years, 3 months and 29 days (10,713 days), just barely less then the orbit of Saturn around the sun (10,759 days). That is too incredible of a coincidence. But we can’t discount that this quatrain refers to India, a massive nation that will influence the future of the planet.

  70. Arvind Says:

    The period of Saturn’s ( more commonly known by the name Sani in India ) evolution is for 7 years and 6 months as per Hindu Astrology . Now , Manmohan Singh is on 7 years rule as the Prime Minister of India . IN another 6 months , the ” Man with the Blue Turban ” will go . Try googling “Picture of Manmohan Singh Prime Minister of India ” and it will always be the blue turban .

  71. David Says:

    I’m not familiar with Hindu astrology, so I never realized Saturn would be 7.5 years. Intriguing. Manmohan Singh would certainly fit a literal interpretation of the Blue Turban. Then the question is how does the rest of the quatrain fit in with India? India has its issues with Pakistan. What would be the impact if religious fundamentalist took over a nuclear-armed Pakistan? I shudder to think. Some interpretations of Nostradamus suggest he implied a future military conflict with a nuclear Islamic world and a 3rd antichrist.

  72. Arvind Says:

    As I said earlier , the Man with the white Turban should be someone from the Islamic World – Could it be the infamous Osama Bin Laden ? – He always wears a white turban and it all fits in toto. . If everything happens as much as Nostradamus ” Saw It ” , then for certain he is a messenger of ” God ” .

  73. David Says:

    The world is changing before our eyes. It feels like better days are ahead, but that depends on who takes over after the Arab world’s protests are resolved. Young people want a better world, and having the young take over is a hopeful thing. They are our future. Screw all the old men and their disastrous dictatorships. But after Libya falls, will Saudi Arabia be next? Who will be in charge? The world needs the Middle East’s oil, and that is very very big money. Who will control the oil money? Old men won’t give up their money. It is the golden rule…those who have the money make the rules.

  74. Arvind Says:

    True , David . But certain things are crystal clear for the next decade . 1. United Arab Emirates will disintegrate like Soviet Union and liberalisation will be omnipresent 2. There will be a common currency 3. Electric vehicles will be as important (if not more ) as petrol ones . Hence the Middle East will have an explosive middle class growth than monarchy . 3. All coast areas of Arab/Asia/Africa/Australia/America will be grossly affected by sea-level rise and hence the scramble for inland resources . The list of certain future goes on …

  75. Into_Mystery Says:

    Hello, I overheard you guys trying to guess what the “white turban” means. There are a book called “Conversations with Nostradamus” that I would like to share. It has interpretations of the quatrains supposedly by “channeling” Nostradamus to say what they mean. A preview is on Google Books. I won’t say if it is true or not but it is interesting.

    Century I-40
    “The false trumpent concealing madness will cause Byzantium to change its laws. From Egypt, there will go forth a man who wants edict withdrawn, changing money and standards.”

    According to the book, “Byzantium” refers to a third Antichrist.

    Different Quatrain:
    “The King enters Foix wearing a blue turban (also referred to as the Antichrist), he will reign for less than a revolution of Saturn; the King with the white turban; his heart banished to Byzantium (Antichrist), Sun, Mars and Mercury near Aquarius.”

    According to the book “white turban” represents a person called the Great Genius who helps the world with inventions and new discoveries after the third antichrist passes from the world.

    In the Jewish bible, one Nostradamus was very familiar with since he came from a Jewish family, King Jonathan was often symbolized wearing a white turban.

    So “white turban king” could mean the name “Jonathan”. If you substitute it in it means,

    “Jonathan’s heart banished to Antichrist”. I still am confused. What does it mean when one’s heart is banished to someone?

  76. Arvind Says:

    Its happening ! As I guessed , the man with the “blue turban ” , the PM of INdia – Manmohan Singh , has been jolted by the opposition party now wanting to quit from the alliance . If so , then just before the end of the 7.6 years of his rule ( saturn’s revolution as per HIndu mythology ), he is going exit . The man with the white turban ,osama bin laden -as I guessed in Feb this year – has already been banished for ever .

    too much comments from notnostrdamos davide. for aknoweledge,mubarak took off the blue early since ….

  78. Shannon Says:

    What you are all missing is that the royal family came out of the middle east. Have you seen pictures of Prince Charles wearing a blue turan? The queen of England in her royal blue dress and head gear for the diamond jubilee? The 3rd world antichrist does in fact come out of the middle east, they just came years ago!
