How much do you really know about Nostradamus ???

Typically known as Nostradamus, Michel de Nostradame was born on December 14, 1503, in St. Remy de Provence. He was said to be a seer and a time traveler living in two realities. Along with his own clairvoyance, he was also adept in astrology and astronomy. He used both sciences to interpret the visions he received in the secrecy of his study.

Because of the visions he had involving death and war, he was often referred to as the prophet of doom. His followers claim he predicted the French Revolution, the birth and rise to power of Hitler, and the assassination of John F. Kennedy. His prophetic vision, 942 cryptic poems called "The Centuries" groups in sets of one hundred. A single verse is usually called a quatrain and one hundred quatrains is a centurie. Generation after generation of readers have been enthralled by them. It said he predicted some of history's most monumental events from the Great Fire of London in 1666 to the destruction of the space shuttle Challenger.
