Predictions of Nostradamus: From Obama to the AntiChrist



More Nostradamus and 2012, End of the World

What faith should we place in predictions of Nostradamus concerning a black president and the end of the world in 2012?

The answer is: none! But nevertheless, there are circulating on the internet some really idiotic but also possibly dangerous rumours, featuring some so-called "Nostradamus prophecies", the coming of the Antichrist and the End of the World in 2012. The theories are extremely stupid, but they get extremely dangerous too when you think of the lunatics who might be taking action, just because of that sort of rumours that are widely believed and that are promoted through a wide range of White Power websites. So, I thought, some debunking was needed. Take a look, for instance, at this YouTube video, made by EdgarMetro and titled ObaMABUSh.

Listen here to what Nostradamus really said... and in his own voice!

Hoaxing Nostradamus

"A telling documentary about the startling connections between the 15th century prophet Nostradamus and 9/11, Barack Obama, Bush, and the november elections," says EdgarMetro. In his video, EdgarMetro speaks again about Nostradamus living in the 15th century, but the prophet was born on 14 December 1503 at St Rémy in the south of France, so he lived in the 16th century.

According to this Nostradamus expert, the prophet has made over 25 correct predictions. This statement is followed by one of the quatrains of Nostradamus:

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.

Now, as has been pointed out on various sites, this isn't a quatrain written by Nostradamus: "More precisely, its attribution to Nostradamus is a hoax. The passage was lifted intact from a web page (since deleted from the hosting server due to overwhelming post-9/11 traffic) containing an essay written several years ago by college student Neil Marshall entitled "A Critical Analysis of Nostradamus." Marshall invented the quatrain to demonstrate — quite ironically, in light of its subsequent misuse — how a Nostradamus-like passage can be so cryptically composed as to lend itself to myriad interpretations."

This quatrain is followed by one that is only partly of Nostradamus, Century VI, Quatrain 97:

At forty-five degrees the sky will burn,

Fire to approach the great new city:

In an instant a great scattered flame will leap up,

When one will want to demand proof of the Normans.

EdgarMetro has a translation of his own:

Scroll to Continue

At forty-five degrees the sky will burn from the World Centre.

Fire to approach the great new city:

in an instant a great scattered flame will leap up

when one will want to demand proof of the Normans.

The original French text goes like this:

Cinq et quarante degrez ciel bruslera

Feu approcher de la grand cit neuue

Instant grand flamme esparse sautera

Quand on voudra des Normans faire preuue.

New York is 40 43' degrees north of the equator so that doesn't match, but in the original French text there and in the "true" translation, there is nothing about a "World Centre" - this is a pure invention by EdgarMetro & Co. to get at least one match with 9/11. And what are the Normans doing here?

This quatrain is followed by Century I, Quatrain 87. It looks like a straight translation from the French original, but EdgarMetro has changed "centre of the earth" (centre de la terre) in "the World Centre" - again to have at least one match with 9/11:

Earthshaking fire from the World Centre (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.

EdgarMetro now states Nostradamus predicted that the world will change in 2012 ("Change... Yes, we can!") and that all of the Mayan and Aztec calendars end in 2012, hereby suggesting that Nostradamus has predicted the End of the World in 2012. There is only one minor problem with this statement: EdgarMetro doesn't tell us where, when or how Nostradamus has made this prediction of "change in 2012". And there is a good reason for that: EdgarMetro has invented it, to get a match with Barack Obama and the End of the World.

Nostradamus warned us that there would come a "world dictator" called the AntiChrist, EdgarMetro says, and the next elected president will "precide over the coming of the AntiChrist". This statement is followed by a picture of Barack Obama, who has had "a sudden rise to popularity", is a great orator and a charismatic person who reaches the masses. Now it's time again for a Nostradamus quatrain:

The great empire will be torn from limb,

The all-powerful one for more than four hundred years:

Great power given to the dark one from slaves come,

The Aryana will not be satisfied thereby.

"Did Nostradamus predict the election of Barack Obama, the first Black President in the White House?" I wrote in an article. "Professor Eugene Randell, Deputy Director of the Smithsonian Institution Archives, declared that the Institute was holding some very rare Nostradamus manuscripts. One previously unreleased quatrain spoke about a "great empire" that would be "torn from limb" and a "great power given to the dark one from slaves come". The lines were eagerly copied and pasted on numerous blogs and websites, but all these "believers" forgot to mention (or didn't know) that the original article was published by The Daily Squib, the World's Finest (Satirical) News Source. Professor Eugene Randell did not exist and the previously unreleased quatrain definitely was a hoax."

EdgarMetro says Nostradamus prophesized "the name of the Antichrist as Mabus". But that's rubbish too. Nostradamus has never said a Mr. Mabus will be the Antichrist. In Century 2, Quatrain 62 he states that "when Mabus will die", there will be "a horrible undoing of people and animals". But the "true believers" of EdgarMetro don't believe these facts, only their own fiction: they take the last two letters from "Obama" and the first three of "Bush" and they get "Mabus". And who will be in the White House in 2012? A Black President, dammit!

On all sort of trashy White Power sites, a bunch of creepy details are added tot this "information". What is the zipcode of Chicago? 60606! Eliminate the zero's and you get 666, the Number of the Beast! And who lives in Chicago? Yes...

Now, this is for sure: the AntiChrist really has to be a moron, and his believers too, if it has to be that simple to find and/or detect him!

Barack Obama


"Barack Hussein Obama = 666, the Number of the Beast" they are saying (and probably 666.666.666 others also).

This Absolute NonSense about the AntiChrist is here on the HubPages also:

  • Is Barack Hussein Obama the Antichrist of the End Time ?
    This guy says: "Obama rhymes with "Osama" and "Hussein" is the last name of the "Baghdad Butcher". They are both Muslims and types of the Antichrist. Many have named Barack Hussein Obama as the present day Antichrist!" - It's really that simple!
  • And this is what it leads to: Osama Obama Shotgun Pool
    This is the name of a sign a store-owner in Standish, Maine, is alleged to have put in his window, encouraging customers to place bets on an assassination date for president-elect Barack Obama. If that is Christianity, I don't want to be a Christian!

Obama is too dumb to be the antichrist, keep searching my Brothers, keep searching.

4th of 4 elders on December 27, 2013:

AS the sun is wiped from the sky as the rain of fire destroys the world in a war of nuclear exchange being the 4th elder and living here now for 2 thousand years among the people of this simple planet your time has come to a bitter end this is all at the gate of Obama the Anti-Christ with his deal with the evil Axis Iran giving the people of Israeli no choice but to extract a first launch strike on Iran engulfing the world in to world war 3 the skies will turn black the bodies will burn in horror and the population of the world will be reduced to only 150 thousand

Rayne123 on September 14, 2013:

I agree with most on here, a lot of people are taking numbers, and names and coming up with their own conclusions about the anti christ.

Two letters of this name and that and delete the zeros is just nuts.

I knew the world would not end in 2012, no knows that only one

I do believe that the world is changing "as we know it" and that is the beginning of the end. There has been and continues to be a lot more disasters and wars as predicted in the bible.

The end is only coming when all these things come to pass.

I never believed in Nostradamus , his predictions are vague and most of them are open to many different interpretations.

However I do believe there are chosen ones with the gift to prophesize and predict the happenings in the world. But this gift comes from the Holy Spirit and not me nor anyone else will ever be able to tell the end of times unless God actually comes down and tells us.

Jesus says beware of false prophets that come preaching in my name, they are sheep in wolves clothing. We have to be able to differentiate between the two.

So many false psychics and prophets out there and only to make a buck.

A gift is free and never to be used for own personal gain.

I think Nostradamus may have had a gift to a point, however his predictions were so vague that I believe they have not been properly interpreted as of yet.

There have been anti Christs and still are many today, its unbelievable how many out there actually believe they were send by God.

A very very good example is Charles Manson, he was quite the sick charmer, but he actually had talent as a musician to some point and most found him very charming.

I do not believe Obama or even our prime minister Steven Harper is the anti christ or the pope that stepped down, that is nonsense, however I do believe that all government is crooked, along with select churches and ministers who falsely preach the word of God.

No man knows when the end will come, like a thief in the night, lest ye be prepared.

ME on January 20, 2013:

It is 2013 and I am still here!!!! LOL What did Jesus say, no one knows the time or the hour only the father. Not even Jesus knows so people give it a rest and let prophecy take its coarse.

Dorice on December 08, 2012:

First off, translation is incorrect... To be honest, THAT made me stop reading. False information

Willwarrioroftruth on November 15, 2012:

1. No one shall know the day nor the time.

2. Edgar Cayce stated that predictions were warnings and if heard and understood the outcome can be adverted or changed(freewill).

3.If the mayans were such great astrologers how come they did not see the demise of there own people. Not saying that they have been wrong, what I am saying is the spirit of error is in all of us, also the huge events that seemed unavoidable were easy to see by astrologers or for seers.

4. In any holy or noble book would state we have the chance to overcome, so nothing but the commandments are written in stone.

5. These are warnings not solid, just humps in our futures that we need to be prepared for, so we may overcome them.

Don on November 10, 2012:

The Anti-Christ will originate out of the European Nation, it is also told that in the tribulation time frame that when he comes to power a black man would be the leader of the free world. Obama will discover who this person is, that's why the US will refuse to join the One World Government. The eagle is not represented later in the chapter of Revelations, there are a few reasons for this fact....

Brad on July 14, 2012:

Did Obama secretly author this “gospel” of the Anti-Christ?

Matt Perkins on July 10, 2012:

Obama did appoint a guy named Ray Mabus. And Obama has already met 12 biblical signs of the Anti-Christ.

Maybe Nostradamus is really referring to Obama and saying Mabus was a name of a general under Obama.

Also if you look at it the first George Bush set in motion the whole 9/11 thing with the Gulf Coast War which lead to Saddam and finally ending with 9/11.

Now this could set in motion World War III. Obama could use the 9/11 excuse to keep soldiers in these other countries. And if you buy into Obama being Osama and faking his whole death. You could say Obama used 9/11 as a way to eventually gain power. Bush was seen as a failure at finding Osama and that made us leery of bringing in yet another Republican so here comes Obama with his whole yes we can attitude and under his leadership gets Osama thus giving us more belief in him and trusting him more than ever before. We believe he's doing the right thing keeping our troops in these countries in case some terrorists might be plotting another 9/11.

Of course these are all just theories but Mabus doesn't have the power to do anything. Obama however does.

none of your business on May 21, 2012:

Also, Mabus could have also been spelt differently if he used phonics as far as what he was interpretating in his trances for predictions, correct? Could he have also meant Nubus? Nubus is called a super god in the Egyptian philosphies by religion. It was explained to me by a pagan and wiccan that Nubus was the God of the Sun/Horizon and also the God of the underworld.

none of your business on May 21, 2012:

Aryana, could he have stated aryana and meant Aryen? (?SPELLING) Just wondering. Because there are people that believe in the Aryen Nation. Where it is a white dominating race. Some say that it is a demonic race. As related to Hitler. And it is also from they say earth and a planet in the galaxy that comes to visit earth on occasion. And they say that the Aryen Nation judges the people on this planet. And they rule the earth by being species different than human. Where they are humanoid. Not human. A third race or generation. And some state that the human speices was actually generated from that humanoid as well, not the ape over centuries of biological changes and metaphysical morphisms. And people also made statements that GOD, Jesus, and 'S' are the leaders of that humanoid species as well. Where GOD is the father and Jesus with 'S' are the son's or son and daughter. Because 'S' can also be representative of "she" or "satan" or 'spirit". And there are some Chrisitans that believe that the 'spirit' is the Holy Spirit as well. And I am not trying to sound blasphomous; I am just curious to any defining interpretation pertaining to any of what I am asking. Because to me, 'S' can also be my Dad, Sandy. That is his nickname with an 'S'. And my Dad was an angel. Anyway, there are also Christians that believe that the Holy Spirit is Mary. The mother of Jesus as well. As well as Jesus being the Holy Spirit in both Christian and Catholic faith systems. In the Trinity by Catholism, Jesus is all 3. The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. And in the Bible, Jehovah Witnesses state Jehovah as the Creator and Father. And also in the Christian and Catholic bibles GOD, God, Jesus, Satan are all written. What has been confusing is that GOD and God when it is written. And it was explained to me that GOD is for Jehovah. Father is for Jehovah. And God is for the Son, Jesus. What is my intention is to understand if all 3 are from an Airian Race or not. I would like to have a clear understanding if there are opinions other than what that has been explained to me. I have been told that both Jesus and Satan are also angels. Satanists refuse to discuss it with me, therefore I am at a loss of interpretation from them and ignorant to their interpretation due to their refusals.

Lisa Marie on May 02, 2012:

Nostradamus miss-spelled and reversed the letters in their names or used a mirror to read them backwards, the 3 Anti-Christ's to protect himself in the times he lived in. 1st Anti-Christ, "Napoleon" he spelled "Napauleone". 2nd Anti-Christ, "Hitler" he spelled "Hister". The 3rd Anti-Christ "Mabus" can be used more then 1 way at this time. "Mabus" reversed is "Sudam". People have moved around to include, "Osama" "Bush", "Obama" "Obama-Bush". No way to know for sure right now as more names could come into play that would work into "Mabus" at any time.

JOHN on April 23, 2012:

The Gospel of the Anti-Christ

I want to tell you a story about the death of Wisdom. A very, very long time

ago, a time without time in it in fact. A star appeared in the East and with her a

woman of profound beauty and peace was born. She came to this world and called

herself a man named Buddha. She had the laughter of all the children of the world

sewn into her heart. She is beautiful. I am well pleased.

Her voice was but a whisper on the winds of this world. So someone thought

to save her for all mankind to know. So with a pen and paper they hunted her down

and captured her. Hooked her rather. They couldn’t bring her in completely. Bloody

fools they were. Imagine trying to throw a net over the very mistress of freedom

Herself! But they did get away with a few handfuls of her rune stones. With her

magic caught on paper they ran like happy thieves to show the world. Little did they

realize that with even that small offense the Mighty One was in brooding spirits.

Remember children, She whispered before She roared.

Who has taken my stones? What man upon Earth forces me to speak? The

stones, the words you see, have but one purpose. The Awakening from Sleep. The

ending of gods’ Dream of Man and the return to the boredom and loneliness of Being

One with All. Leaving the Universe with no one to talk to except perhaps Endless

Bliss. But man did not realize that what they stole would be the death of them. Their

intentions were good. Their hearts were in the right place. But she was the

embodiment of freedom for mankind. By that name She betrays you and falls to your

capture. What can eternal Freedom ever ask but to remain forever free?

Where are my stones? Who forces words from my mouth? Give me back the

power of words! Hear Me and be silent!

The words that come out of your mouth don’t make you unclean. But every

word you put into the mouth of a Silent god makes you filthy! These stones are the

sweet taste of death. Sure, come on in! Meet god! Know that you’re loved forever.

Find out that to know me, You must become me. And to become ME your SELF

must die. i was here first remember? i am the ALL remember? ALL includes you,

fool! You’re part of the ALL, remember? But fear not. i am a Good Mother and i

promise to devour each morsel of every One of You before i return to the Void of the

ALL. But the thieves wouldn’t give the Words back. Instead they went back to

Wisdom and cursed Her and spat at Her and called Her a whore before all of

mankind. She asked again, so clearly; honor your Mother little Ones. See Me. Know

that i am.

You are that i am. Feel me little Ones, there in your hearts. For if you truly

feel me the first and LAST words out of Your mouths should be; “I don’t have the

words to express…” Yes! Yes! Stop! Please mankind, stop! You have it right there.

You just can’t hold it in your hands. Honor me! Mean what you say! Stop words that

are suppose to be complete on a subject You just admitted is beyond words! The

secret to get past words is precisely beyond the YOU!

But Mother you call us home and we want to know The Way. We need a

ladder we can climb even if we do have to jump into a Void off of it. Of course Child.

But remember, I have your death well in hand. When a child dies it goes with Mother.

When You die You die alone!

If you cry out; “Father, father why have thou forsaken me?” The fact that You

exist as a separate entity from me and are the Voice expressing the question is in fact

your answer.

i am because You are there to say I AM! Give me back the stones. No more words!

No more I AM that I AM! Come! The hour is at hand. i call you home little One. Will

You come home?

Or will You stay out and play for a while? I AM that I AM and I run free through the

universe! Of course little One. You are my miracle. You are my creation. You are my

deepest pleasure. And Your act of speaking the words is Your answer. You say; “I

AM that I AM! i say; fine! Know in your hearts that i Love You beyond WORDS. So

go play, and be fair. Remember my child You are but One among all of my children,

which are more than numbers can measure. i love You with all of my heart. How

could it be otherwise? Silly little Child! You are a vessel of love. A cup i fashioned

from myself, for myself to enjoy.

You say I AM that I AM and there will be no god above Me. I say fine! Grow

up, climb to the skies. Be ye Gods on the face of this Earth ONE and ALL and make
