Nostradamus and the
World Trade Center

   Did Nostradamus really predict the 9/11 World Trade Center attack? 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". The quatrain was published in numerous Nostradamus books, in the form below, well in advance of the 9/11 attacks:


     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 verse. The result was quite shocking. The quatrain translation below includes the original Old French version and an Old French Dictionary if you want to check the word meanings:


    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: Although the first three lines of the many translations of this Nostradamus quatrain were close to being accurate, no one was able to accurately 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 this quatrain was in fact accurately describing the 9/11/2001 World Trade Center attack in New York City. This shocking revelation meant that Nostradamus may not only have been attempting to warn us that the attack was coming, but was also letting us know exactly how the terrorists were going to accomplish the deed!
