    AN EMAIL I RECEIVED REGARDING THE NOSTRADAMUS ISSUE

    To every one who received the Nostradamus prophesy e-mail, I think
    >they should read this, before they have the SH*T scared out of them.
    >P

    >
    >Subject:
    >Nostradamus "prophesy"
    >I have recently received an email at the office today containing the
    >following two (2) prophetic verses apparently attributed to
    >Nostradamus which you may already have seen or may see in the next
    >few days/weeks:
    >
    >*******************
    >
    >"In the year of the new century and nine months,
    >From the sky will come a great King of Terror...
    >The sky will burn at forty-five degrees.
    >Fire approaches the great new city..."
    >
    >"In the city of york there will be a great collapse,
    > 2 twin brothers torn apart by chaos
    >while the fortress falls the great leader will succumb
    >third big war will begin when the big city is burning"
    >
    >- NOSTRADAMUS
    >
    >According to the original author of the email, he/she goes on to
    >claim:
    >
    >He said this will be bigger than the previous two.
    >2001 is the first year of the new century and this is the 9th month.
    >New York is located at the 41st degree Latitude.
    >
    >*******************
    >Naturally, I was very troubled by this message, but thankfully my
    >first reaction was to investigate the truth of these verses and I
    >looked to the Internet for the original English translations to
    >verify each verse line by line.
    >
    >What I found surprised me (and then again it didn't, since alot of
    >what passes for "truth" on the 'Net just isn't so), since the above
    >"quote" looks like it's from the same prophetic verse (or quatrains
    >as they are commonly called).
    >Instead, it turns out that this is a slapping together of lines of
    >verse of *different* quatrains that the original author of the email
    >thought to piece together in hopes of creating what would appear to
    >be intact verses of prophesy(see "HOW DID I DO THIS?" below). This
    >means that the 2 verses are a FABRICATION and shouldn't be believed.
    >
    >If I repeat the verses and then reference the book and quatrain
    >(indicated as (line #; book#.quatrain#)), you'll see what I mean:
    >
    >In the year of the new century and nine months, (NO MATCHES FOUND;
    >see
    >"Comments", 1.)
    >From the sky will come a great King of Terror... (line 2; 10.72)
    >The sky will burn at forty-five degrees. (line 1; 6.97, see
    >"Comments",2.)
    >Fire approaches the great new city... (line 2; 6.97)
    >
    >In the city of york there will be a great collapse, (NO MATCHES
    >FOUND);
    >see "Comments", 3.)
    >2 twin brothers torn apart by chaos (NO MATCHES FOUND)
    >while the fortress falls the great leader will succumb (NO MATCHES
    >FOUND)
    >third big war will begin when the big city is burning (NO MATCHES
    >FOUND)
    >
    >Comments:
    >--------
    >1. The actual line is "The year 1999, seventh month," and is found
    >at line 1; 10.72.
    >2. Note that this verse is a combination of lines from 2 entirely
    >different verses.
    >3. The accuracy of this entire verse is suspicious, since no match
    >of each line could be found *even* during an Internet-wide search.
    >The closest match that I could find was "In the City of God there
    >will be a great thunder, Two brothers torn apart by Chaos, while the
    >fortress endures, the great leader will succumb"
    >(http://www.ed.brocku.ca/~nmarshal/nostradamus.htm), but no
    >reference to any quatrain was made on this webpage.
    >
    >All this said, I'll leave it to you to decide whether the original
    >"verses" should concern you or not. However, in hopes of AVOIDING a
    >"mass hysteria" reaction to what I think to be a fabricated
    >"prophesy", please pass this message on to everyone you can
    >(especially pass it back up the chain of emails that you received
    >from your friends and ask that they do the same).
    >
    >At least let this be a lesson on not taking everything you read in
    >your email seriously, except this message of course!...

    >HOW DID I DO THIS?
    >My research led me to a webpage
    >(http://www.astrologer.ru:8003/Nostradamiana/index_eng.html) where a
    >transcribed collection of Nostradamus' books can be found and I did
    >a search of selected text strings in each line of the 2 quatrains
    >(quoted at the beginning of my message) and tried to match them
    >against the entire collection of the English translations at
    >"www.astrologer.ru:8003/Nostradamiana" using Google's advanced
    >search features (e.g., when I looked for the second line of verse, I
    >chose "great King of Terror" as my text string and the Google link
    >to that text was
    >http://www.google.com/search?q=%22great+King+of+Terror%22+site%3Awww.astrologer.ru %3A8003&btnG=Google+Search).
