Michael de Nostredame – known as Nostradamus was born on December 14, 1503 (though a date of 21st December is also arguable) in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence in the south of France, where his claimed birthplace still exists, Michel de Nostredame was one of at least nine children of Reynière de St-Rémy and grain dealer and notary Jaume de Nostredame. The latter’s family had originally been Jewish, but Jaume’s father, Guy Gassonet, had converted to Catholicism in around 1455, taking the Christian name “Pierre” and the surname “Nostredame”.
Nostradamus prophesized a time of great change in earth’s history around the year 2012 of the Gregorian Calendar. In 2012, a rare and possibly Earth changing astrological alignment is due to occur that will precipitate a cataclysmic event. Whatever is in store — a massive cosmic collision, a global environmental disaster, an Armageddon-like religious showdown, or a more subtle transformation — there have been multiple predictions from different times and cultures that December 21, 2012 will mark a major shift in the history of our planet.
For all prognosticators, conspiracy theorists, and other interested parties, you will be pleased to know that the History Channel will present a two-hour program dealing with the many dire predictions for the year 2012.
The program is actually a sequel to “The Lost Book of Nostradamus,” and claims that it will separate long standing historical predictions, and actual facts.
Anytime the 2012 prophecy is mentioned, you get opinions that range from fear to outright ridicule. What do you think? Is this just another fatalistic warning without merit, or should we really be concerned? Give us your comments.
