So the history channel showed an hour or so long film about Nostradamus and some political science professor( claimed mathmetician and prophet). He claimed that his algorithm can help him predict the future based off of government decisions. Nostradamus predicted such events as the antichrists, Napolean and Hitler, as well as the twin tower crash and the distrubtion of peace amongst the US and Russia. Or so THEY said. The political scientist seems to convince the producers his algorithm predicts many "avoidable events" as does Nostradamus. I honestly Can't help but be extremly skeptic. Nostradamus predicting a world war in the early 2000s and the rise of an arab empire. Anyway does anyone else think that these ideas are flukes? While math is a very powerful too it's direction can be misguided (like alot of skeptic scientists think about the mathematicians coming up with 11 dimensions) without expiremental fact. While Nostradamus's predictions seem to be true it may only because they are interpretting to make it fit into what has happened. Or being as famous as he was maybe the antagonists ha has written of even got a hold of his scripts and inspired themselves to become these predicted figures. Which means Nostradamus wasn't quite careful about being vague. Anyway what are your opinions?
