Nostradamus Quatrain Generator

#1  Postby Sphynxcat » Apr 03, 2010 8:14 pm

I found this cool little thing on the interweb: an automated Nostradamus prophecy generator: http://www.getodd.com/stuf/nostradamus.html

Given that Nostradamus wrote a load of old bollocks, but wrote it so vaguely and poetically that you could attach any number of his quatrains to any number of subsequent events, I thought it might be interesting to see if any of these auto-quatrains could apply to current events. Like this one -

Too much the heavens weep for the Androgyne procreation

Near the heavens human blood shed

It will be seized and plunged into the Vat

Drinking by force the waters poisoned by sulfur

To me, this seems to hint at the Catholic child-abuse scandal: 'Androgyne procreation'...'human blood shed ... seized and plunged into the Vat'[ican]...'waters poisoned by sulfur' [a clearly poetic take on the corruption of innocence].

What might also be interesting is to see if any auto-quatrain posted here subsequently seems to apply to a later event. And of course, any that strike you as funny will be most welcome here. Anyways, in the hope that the rest of you fancy a bit of entertaining confirmation bias, I'm going to post the next quatrain the generator comes up with, and see if it applies to anything yet to pass...

The trembling of the earth at Mortara

Estates and offices low are high, those high made very low

While the fortress falls the great leader will succumb

Then wars will start anew

Fuck, that sounds bad! (this bit isn't part of the quatrain, BTW)

I got the following:

The new barque will go on voyages

In the path of the hollow mountains

People will travel safely through the sky over land and wave

High price unguarded none will have provided for it

I got
Earth-shaking fire from the center of the Earth
That they will be the authors of a great conflict
It will be seized and plunged into the Vat
When three brothers will wound each other and murder


Now to figure out what significant events this "postdicts"... :ask:
The dog, the dog, he's at it again!

i quite like this one:


Earth-shaking fire from the center of the earth

The world put into trouble by three brothers

It will be seized and plunged into the Vat

When three brothers will wound each other and murder

the first line tells of all the volcanoes popping off, but who the three brothers might be only time will reveal.

Call that a Quatrain? :rolleyes:

Okay, the forum has gone bonkers.

Nostradamus predicted this would happen.
