Michel de Nostradamus (1503 - 1566), was one of
the world's most famous publishers of prophecies.
Nostradamus wrote four-line verses (quatrains) in groups
of 100 (centuries). The important thing to remember is that
he wrote them in a very vague way, although some of them
would have made sense to the people of the time.
But many authors have taken liberties in their translations
of the 16th Century French used by Nostradamus and other
later translations in order to twist and turn the predictions
to fit know events or people.
Nostradamus mentions the name “Mabus”,
- Century 2, Quatrain 62 -
Mabus then will soon die, there will come
A horrible undoing of people and animals:
At once vengeance one will see vengeance,
One hundred hands, thirst, famine, when the comet will run.
Well, if you spell "Mabus" backwards,
you get “Subam” then, just turn the “b”
backwards again it becomes a “d”, “Sudam”.
Now replace the "u" with an "a" and
you get “Sadam”. Then just add another “d”
and you get “Saddam”. Amazing.
But even more amazing is that you can also turn “Mabus”
into W. Bush. Just flip the “M” to make “W”
then remove the ‘a’ and add a 'h' at the end.
You get "W Bush". This is game
anyone can play.
One of the best book on the
subject is "The
Mask of Nostradamus" by James Randi.

Spontaneous Human Combustion
Relax. Spontaneous Human Combustion is a myth. Although
people can and do burn, it takes many hours and is usually
the result of a tragic accident where the clothes catch
on fire and the fire itself is fuelled by body fat.
