Michel de Nostredame (December 14 1503 – 2 July 1566) is usually Latinized to Nostradamus, was a French mystic who published collections of prophecies that have since become famous worldwide. He is best known for his book Les Propheties (The Prophecies), the first edition of which appeared in 1555. Since the publication of this book, which has rarely been out of print since his death, Nostradamus has attracted a following that, along with the pop culture press, credits him with predicting many major world events, although most are open to interpretation. He is ofton misquoted.
For example, Nostradamus did NOT write (regarding 9/11):
In the City of God there will be a great thunder,
Two brothers torn apart by Chaos, while the fortress endures,
The great leader will succumb,
The third big war will begin when the big city is burning.
