Nostradamus and the
World Trade Center

   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 numerous Nostradamus books, in the form below, well in advance of the 9/11 attack:


     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 following the 9/11 attack an expert in the Old French language carefully re-translated this quatrain from the original Old French verses. The result, including the original Old French version, and an Old French dictionary if you want to check the word meanings, is printed below:


    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-round to a new course.

Puis are-thuse rou-gira nouveau fleuve.




   Quatrain #1-87: The first three lines of the many original translations of this quatrain were very close to being accurate, but no one was able to translate the words "rougira" and "arethuse" in the last line of the prophecy.  When the last line was finally accurately translated, it became clear that the quatrain was actually describing the WTC attack on New York City.  This shocking revelation meant that Nostradamus may not only have been trying to warn us about what the terrorists were planning, but was also letting us know how they were going to accomplish the deed!

   Did we ignore this prophetic warning about a terrorist attack on New York City?
