There's no need for me to repeat the life story of Nostradamus. Books about his life have been written profusely and well. Additionally, there have been excellent video productions about his life and predictions. My intent therefore is to concentrate on a dozen of his verses that seem to indicate the use of nuclear weapons in World War II, and in a horrible future war that may be just around the corner (hope not), directed by the third tyrant. To date the third tyrant has not yet been identified. Napoleon is believed to be the first tyrant that Nostradamus describes in his verses, Hitler the second, and the one that I just referred to will be Nostradamus' third tyrant, also known as Nostradamus' third antichrist.
It is not my intent to alarm anyone, merely to lay out the facts as I understand them, and let you be the judge. However, they say a stitch in time saves nine.
I was associated with nuclear testing for thirty years, and have studied Nostradamus literature for thirty-five years, so when I say a certain island in a Nostradamus verse trembles because of a nuclear explosion or that a light appears on earth brighter than the Sun, I can explain, based on considerable experience, why I think those instances indicate the use of nuclear weapons.
I'm a data analyst, not a psychic, astrologer, or seer, although according to a state examination I took in my teens, I do have an exceptional ability called spatial visualization that allows me to visualize scenarios and write words to fit them, and also the reverse, for example, to read a Nostradamus verse and visualize the entire verse, hopefully visualizing the exact same scenarios Nostradamus saw as he wrote about them. That's what I'll be passing on to you the reader, so you can see what you make of it all.
First a word about Nostradamus' verses. Nostradamus wrote verses of four-line stanzas called quatrains, as well as a few verses with six-line stanzas. You and I will be taking a look at some of his four-line stanzas. He called his book of four-line stanzas Centuries. Century 7, contains 42 four-line stanzas, the other 9 centuries each contain 100 four-line stanzas. The centuries are numbered 1 though 10 and, except for century 7, there are 100 four-line stanzas in each century (or chapter if you wish). So, for example, the four-line stanza number 23 in century 8 will be designated 8-23. As we go along, I'm going to tell you what the designation of each four-line stanza that I discuss is, so in case you think I'm pulling your leg you can recheck what I've written, if you so desire.
