Returned from work and switched on the Idiot Box (Television), a news channel was airing a show on Doomsday, predictions, 2012, 2000, Nostradamus, etc, etc. I have been hearing this since year 1999 (about year 2000) I was 15 then. I still can’t understand why so many people believe them. Some of my friends argue that many of the predictions are true and would be unwise take credit out of them. The most prominent being Nostradamus and 2012: Mayan Prediction.
Well have you wondered, these prophesies are the bad ones, what happened to all the good ones did these prophets didn’t see anything good coming in future generation.
Its the human nature to look into negative and many of these prophecies are searched upon only when something terrible happens.These forecasts can be comforting because they suggest that the horrible incidents were inevitable, that they happened as part of a larger plan. Through the course of human history, there have been hundreds of notable prophets, but in the wake of modern tragedies, one name seems to pop up more than any other: Nostradamus
Nostradamus is famous for his book “Les Prophecies” (The Prophesies), which was first published in 15th century. This book contains around 1000 prophesies and all of them are undated. Many scholars follow his work and interpret current happenings to his prophesies, this is where prophesies fail. Many events do happen around the world and when we interpret with some vague words with an event, it seems like the prophecy has come true.
Here are some verses that were used to relate 9/11 with his prophecy
“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”
“Earthshaking fire from the Centre of the earth
will cause tremors around the New City.
Two great rocks will war for a long time,
then Arethusa will redden a new river”
Well if I interpret then i could relate this to Srilanka (LTTE vs Singalis), Killing of Rajiv Gandhi and the war that took place for so many years.
I am only curious, why these predictions are used only when something happens to developed nations, were these prophets rich biased, why haven’t they predicted the drought in African nations, war in Srilanka, Death of innocents in Afghanistan (Pre 9/11), etc.
These predictions are very vague and if any one believes them than they are the biggest fools in the whole world.
Oh I forgot, what will happen to us after 2012, Ancient Mayans predicted this. Oh really, did they predict their own end, if yes then why did they extend the calendar till 2012. If no, we don’t have to worry about Dooms day, because they weren’t able to predict their own end.
If people believe about Ancient Mayan Calendar why don’t people believe in Ancient Hindu calendar which is as old or older than Mayan calendar. As per Hindu’s the human life is divided into 4 different phases and we are living in “Kali Yuga”, the last phase of these four. “Kali Yuga” has 432,000 years and this has started in the year 3102 BC and that means we have close to 427,000 years to live, so we shouldn’t worry about any Dooms Day or Apocalypse.
Its human nature to fear and be afraid; these conspirators use this and fill us with fear.
Don’t be afraid that your life will end, if afraid than it will never begin.
One life, Live it.
