NOSTRADAMUS predictions for 2018 have foretold one of the worst years in global history with a string of natural disasters, the fall of the economy, and the start of World War 3.
French prophet Nostradamus is believed by some to have accurately predicted the rise of Napoleon and Hitler and the 9/11 Twin Towers attacks.
Many researchers of the infamous prophet, who died in 1566, are also convinced he has correctly foretold the current barbaric acts being committed by ISIS in the Middle East including its bid to capture areas of Europe to fulfill its Caliphate.
Now people are looking at what his writings could foretell about 2018.
1. World War 3:
The most chilling prediction for 2018 is from Nostradamus’ book Les Propheties.
It includes a quatrain that some have interpreted as describing the start of the third world war.
Nostradamus said: “The big war will start in France and all Europe will be attacked, it will be long and terrifying for everyone and then finally there will be peace but only a few will enjoy it.
“A war will start between the two great world powers and it will last for a period of 27 years.”
Some commentators have predicted China, Russia and North Korea will unite to take on the US.
2. Major eruption of Mount Vesuvius
The Italian volcano will “shake the earth every five minutes,” and at least 6,000 people will be killed, according to the prophecy.
In early 2016 more than 1.5 million people were warned they are were living in the danger zone of the super volcano, which it was said could go off anytime -causing a global catastrophe.
Half of the three million people living in Naples were told they live within a new yellow danger zone of the Vesuvius supervolcano, the infamous peak which was responsible for the historic destruction of Pompeii in 79AD.
3. Terrible earthquake:
Nostradamus appears to have predicted natural disaster across the United States.
He wrote: “An earthquake shall concern particularly the western area of the United States. Its power shall be felt in lands throughout the globe.”
Worryingly, the US Geological Survey (USGS) carefully monitors seismic activity in the Cascadia Subduction Zone, where there were a series of medium tremors in 2016, and two fault lines in California, including San Andreas.
Scientists say both the California fault lines and the Cascadia Subduction Zone are long overdue a major earthquake of magnitude eight or above.
They have revealed the Cascadia Subduction Zone is of most concern.
It runs about 60 miles offshore along the Pacific coast from northern California to Vancouver Island, so major cities including Portland, Seattle and Vancouver are within its tsunami range, threatening millions of people and major infrastructure.
4. Comet or asteroid strike:
A major asteroid strike is expected as Nostradamus has been interpreted as saying for 2018: “A moment of great violence will coincide with the appearance of a comet in the sky. A nuclear terrorism and natural catastrophes will destroy our planet.”
While it is accepted an asteroid or comet will one day threaten Earth, NASA says it knows of no major one that threatens is for at least 100 years.
5. Economic collapse:
Nostradamus said: “the rich would die many times over.”
This is taken by many to mean the global economic collapse as a result of WW3 and the effects of many natural disasters.
6. Humans will live to be over 200:
With so much doom and gloom predicted, this seems as unlikely one.
However, Nostradamus predicted: “The advancements of medicine will raise humans’ life expectancy up to at least 200 years of age.”
It has been interpreted as meaning towards the end of 2018, an 80-year-old person will resemble a 50-year old.
