|Michel de Nostradamus|
Busting Nostradamus' Famous Prophecy-us
It's 2013 and seeing that I'm still alive, I can safely assume that the 'end of the world' paranoids are now hiding beneath rocks. As the Latin saying goes, suum cuique!, or "to each his own preference!", but supporting a belief that can be disproved simply by time is foolish.
Although considering what could've been reality if their desired Judgement Day happened, obviously I wouldn't be alive to defect to being a believer myself, or writing a parallel blog entry about it.
Everyone knows where it all started: 2012 (2009). In fact, most of the people-ogist (pardon my lack of knowledge with regards to the specific profession who studies these kinds of thing) who've researched on the Mayans were already aware that their calendar ends on December 21, 2012, however it meant that the calendar went on to the new and current bak'tun' starting on that date.
"A bak'tun is a period of ~400 years, or in actuality 400 times 360 days" –Then intellectuals started linking all these verses from the Bible's book of Revelation, such an example from the said book:
(8:7) And the first sounded, and there followed hail and fire, mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of the earth was burnt up, and the third part of the trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.Somehow, the (sic) disciples associated this with a meteor passing the earth on the last day of December, but then within each year there's a feasible number of meteor showers occurring that's close enough to earth for a person to see without the use of telescopes.
Although hands down, their analysis and breakdown of pieces from the past that has coherence with the aforementioned apocalypse is commendable and would've converted any skeptic to be among themselves.
Another variable is because I'm new to this and seeing that they might been doing these ramblings longer than I have...well kudos anyway.
Then it gets creepy from here on out. Someone made a video explaining the odd but valid connection between Michel de Nostradamus' prophecy and the Korean pop sensation's music video. Here's a direct excerpt from the video with Nostradamus' phrase about doomsday and comparison with the latter:
"From the calm morning, the end will come when of the dancing horses the number of circles will be nine."
The calm morning represents the eastern ideology of the Korean mindfulness. In addition to this, Nostradamus also predicted that the yellow race will rule world and we can look at Psy 's popularity as a cultural domination over the Western civilization. In addition, the "calm" term is suggesting that this is a non-violent, unharmful emergence and it will be embraced and adored by people. The evil that is enticing and looks cool will bend people's mind with contagious behavior. We're talking about the simple and catchy dance, the one that resembles the riding-a-horse movements, exactly what Nostradamus is foreseeing in his text.
As you can see, the prophecy is strikingly specific! This cool dance went crazy all over the Internet, as Psy's Gangnam style reached almost ONE BILLION views on the video sharing site YouTube. Now, things get even more interesting: 1 billion it's nine zeros, right? And zero is actually a circle. So those nine circles are referring to the number of views the Gangnam style Youtube video will reach when the prophecy will be done. (UniformediaStudios)...Okay. That really gave me the chills the first time I watched it. I mean, how close could it possibly get, knowing the text was written in 1555.
But, granting that I'm still alive, this single fact automatically disproves this block of text, and here's to hoping I won't worry with speculations about the end of time in my lifetime again.
Albeit I almost presumed it was true. Almost.
