Does the Russian war have anything to do with Nostradamus' prediction of WWIII?

I read the e-book a little while ago and from what I remember, this "small" war is followed by the takeover of the Russian Catholic Church and assassination of the Pope. This is stated in his book and not my opinion. Also, I do not wish to offend anyone or their beliefs.

Tell me if I am wrong. Also, What do you guys think?

I don't think so since the pope isn't in Georgia.:roll:

Predictions can always come true, or they can be completely wrong. Anything can happen, although I'd hope this doesn't become something bigger than it needs to be.

I think people are blowing this conflict way out of proportion. WW3 will not start because of this.

We are getting close to WWIII the causes have yet to be seen.

Is it a co-incidence that Putin has demands? Also, Is it a co-incidence that the first act of aggression is by Russia. Hmm.

I don't think so. His predictions are normally true.

From the last "Nostradamus" thread:

Well, let me examine...

Let's look at his name...

Nostradamus.

Notice the first two letters: "N-O"

So no.

Now, there are the letters d, u, and m. Copy the d and reverse it, so it's a b. Look! d, u, m, b. Dumb!

and if they're not true, they just haven't happened yet.

He had 1000's of them. 90% of them didnt come true...

I don't believe this stuff, but if the Pope does get assassinated I'll have to rethink Nostradamus. . . .

I am going to point out all that is wrong with your message:

1: Russia hasn;t started anything - there was a Georgian uprising in the formerly Georgian provinces of South Ossetia and Abkhazia - Russia has merely moved to stop this rebellion.

2: Euro troops are rarely used in anything other than peacekeeping missions, and America is already stretched with current military operations to get involved with something on the scale os Russia

3: Russia has not been a Communist country for a long time.

All the significant ones did. Hitler Napoleon, 9/11 to some extent.

Most of predictions are so vague its peoples imagination that fill out the blanks and apply them to modern events. Oh and I laugh at the person saying Russia is not a communist nation...Soon youll be saying that the new president is actually the leader of that country.

Next we'll be fighting China over Pacific Ocean oil and we'll have to live in vaults because of nuclear war.

Then we'll have to fight muties.

if you make a million predictions you may get one right and 999999 wrong. thats usually the case with nostradamus types

you mean the one where he said "Hither"? (but it's only one letter off!!!11)

No, but georgia has specifically trained Popesassins that they plan to use. :o
#23 Posted by iJeff32 (354 posts) -

Can we quit making new threads and stick to the original Russian thread?

But this is a minor war, it will be over soon. Georgia might lose, but it will be over soon to be honest. USA can't get involved for one reason and it is that we are already in a war.

1. russia supports south ossetian and abkhazian rebels

3. russia has never been communist, only socialist

Actually i belive what nostradamus said was that the river hister will overflow. often most of his predictions have been twisted after an event to better fit what has happened.

China has very little interest in getting into a full scale conflict,

Also why would the communist nations run to Russia's aide? They left most of them hanging after the fall of the Soviet Union.

If this conflict is our idea of a world war, we might have to rethink our standards a bit..

Wars don't happen as often anymore, so whenever a war starts, people think it's a world war because it's so awesome and cool.

:lol: No, none of them have come true. He just wrote down so much **** that it's easy to interpret it in a billion ways. And then you have people who think they can change letters and words, so it seems as if his predictions came true, but they didn't.
And why call him a prophet if he just guesses? If he fails most of the time, what's the point? He's useless if he just predicts a few things, but fails at most.

Your logic is flawed here. Nostradamus made hundreds, if not thousands of predictions. You only ever hear of the ones that come true, but for every one or two that come true, there are dozens more that don't. History has no, "Magic eight-ball." History is written in unpredictable and surprising ways.

While Nostradamus's predictions may at times seem air-tight, and some may indeed come true, he is not the bases for steering humanity's course through time.

WWIII because Russia invaded Georgia? I don't think so. People probably said the same thing when the U.S. invaded Iraq.

"other communist countries"? Russia is a communist country?

This will be very unlikely to be WWIII. prob oil will be the cause of WWIII

Sure, if you want to torture logic and make the most abstract possible reading of events. If he could see the future, why not just plainly state it, why use fortune cookie vagaries that could be applied to most anything?

Why do we always look at Nostradamus' predictions after an event occurs? What's the use of a prediction if it isn't known beforehand?
#38 Posted by DeathHeart95 (2541 posts) -
World War III will be the MEC (Middle Eastern Coallition), Russia, China, and North Korea versus most of Europe (UK, Germany, France and Italy most likely) and the USA. Also, expect Russia to start the war by trying to make a "Soviet Union version 2".
#39 Posted by _EvidencE_ (1112 posts) -
Well if Britain/UK or any NATO forces get attacked for ANY reason by Russia all of NATO will go and attack well, Russia. I beleive if that were to happen, it would be WW3.

#41 Posted by Flaming_Spoon (289 posts) -
I think Nostradamus' predictions are all bull... It's like that episode of South Park where they go see John Edwards (the psychic)... anyone can do it... its like saying that I predict there will be an Armageddon in the next 10,000 years... anything could happen.

It's connecting patterns where there are none. It's totally subjective.
