Nostradamus 9/11

   In 1981, author Erika Cheetham wrote in her famous Nostradamus book "The Man Who Saw Tomorrow," that Quatrain #1-87 described an "Attack on New York" involving its "towers or skyscrapers." This quatrain was published in the form below in numerous Nostradamus books well before the 9/11 attack ever occurred:


     QUATRAIN #1-87   (original translation)

Earthshaking fire from the center of the Earth

Will cause trembling in the towers of New York City;

Two great rocks will be at war for a long time

Then Arethuse reddens the new river


   The day after the 9/11 attack, an expert in the Old French language carefully re-translated the quatrain from its original Old French form. The result, including the original Old French version, is listed below. A link to an Old French dictionary has also been provided if you wish to check the Old French word meanings for yourself:


    QUATRAIN #1-87   (corrected translation)

Enormous-promontories on fire in the center of the mainland,

Enno-sigee feu du centre de terre,

Will cause trembling in the towers of the City of New (York);

Fera trembler au tour de Cite Neufve;

Two great rock-monoliths continuously will be attacked,

Deux grands rochiers longtemps feront la guerre,

This is when air-vessels will turn-around to a new course.

Puis arethuse rougira nouveau fleuve.




   The first three lines of the many original translations of this interesting quatrain were close to being accurate, but no one could translate the two words "arethuse" and "rougira" in the last line of the poem. When the last line was correctly translated, it became clear that this quatrain was actually describing the New York City World Trade Center attack.

   This shocking revelation resulted in Quatrain #1-87 suddenly taking on an entirely new meaning, as it seemed the prophet Nostradamus was in fact attempting to warn us about what the terrorists were planning. Unfortunately many fake Nostradamus quatrains were hastily posted on the Internet after the 9/11 attack, and when these false quatrains were discredited, no one was willing to read the true quatrain.

   Did we ignore this warning about the 9/11 terrorist attack on New York City?
