11. NUDITY TO BECOME THE NORM
As physiques improve, thanks to better genes, people will become more comfortable with their bodies and public nudity will be gradually accepted.
12. SLEEPING DISEASE WILL STRIKE 1 BILLION
Sometime in the summer of the Year 2015, an epidemic will emerge from Africa and sweep across the world, spreading quickly.
The illness will “cause one man in every seven to sleep like the dead.” When or if victims will wake up is unclear.
13. HOMOSEXUALS WILL QUADRUPLE IN NUMBER
For unexplained reasons, the number of “men who love men wwill increase fourfold,” Nostradamus predicts.
14. STAR WARS DISASTER
The missile-defense system proposed by Ronald Reagan will finally be put in place – but a gaffe will cause the system to pepper the Earth with deadly laser fire. “The old king’s shield will cause woe, lights from the sky will smite East and West,” the seer warns.
15. THE NEXT POPE WILL BE ASSASSINATED
A charismatic Pope will be slain while visiting a foreign land, leading to worldwide turmoil. Notes Dr. Fourier, “We know that the victim must be the successor to Pope Benedict XVI, because he is described as ‘young’ in Nostradamus’ warning.”
16. ORGANIZED RELIGION WILL CEASE TO EXIST
The killing of the Pope will spark an international holy war. The result will be an end to churches as we know them, Nostradamus says, but people will continue to pray and maintain their individual relationships with God.
17. ANGELS WILL LIVE AMONG HUMANS
Angels will manifest themselves more and more frequently on Earth, until God’s servants actually begin to live and work openly among humans.
“The sons of God and the sons of man will mingle,” Nostradamus writes.
18. THE ANTI-CHRIST WILL BE CAPTURED
The Anti-Christ, the earthly incarnation of Satan whose coming is foretold in the Bible, will be captured and imprisoned “in the bowels of a mighty fortress,” before he has a chance to seize power. This will postpone the Apocalypse for centuries.
19. MOST PEOPLE WILL LIVE OFF OF EARTH
Over the next 300 years, man will colonize other star systems. To most humans, Earth will become “a place of myth,” the seer predicts.
20. THE WORLD WILL END IN THE YEAR 2436
Nostradamus states definitively that human history will grind to a halt on October 1 of that year.
He doesn’t state the exact means of mankind’s destruction, but indicates that a war with beings he calls “our ancient enemy” will play a role.
