Geeky news for the geeky prophet-types.
Forget Y2K - Worry about July 1999!!!
Many people are getting worried about the impending doom from computer
failures on January 1, 2000. According to the 16th century prophet
Michel de Nostradame (Nostradamus), July 1999 is what should be sending
shivers down our spine.
In a collection of prophecies first published in 1568 (two years after
his death) Nostradamus wrote:
"In the year 1999 and seven months, from the sky will come the great
King of Terror. He will bring to life the great king of the Mongols.
Before and after Mars reigns happily".
Who is the great King of Terror? What about the great king of Mongols?
Does the reference to Mars mean that war will reign happily before and
after July 1999. We will soon have all the answers to these questions.
Nostradamus wrote many of his prophesies in rhymes consisting of four
lines. He predicted the Great Fire of London of 1666, which occurred
over 100 years after his death. ("The blood of the just will be
demanded of London, burnt by fire in three times twenty and six"). He
is credited with predicting the rise and fall of Hitler.
Nostradamus predicted three anti-Christs and that the turn of the
Millennium would be marked by war. This would be followed by a period
of peace for 1,000 years.
The rule of all forecasters is to give an event or a date but never
both. Nostradamus breaks this rule in this prophesy by giving us both.
What if nothing happens by the end of next month? Well don't sleep too
easy. The seventh month may mean October. In Nostradamus' day, most
countries considered the first day of spring to begin the New Year
(March 21). In America, January 1 was made the New Year in 1752. The
seventh month may be October.
What if October passes and nothing happens. Well, just go back to
worrying about Y2K. If you want to take your mind off of the doom and
gloom try playing Geekculture's Bill Gates Head Hockey, or staring at
