(ominous music)

- [Narrator] His name

was Michel de Nostredame,

and he was born in 1503 in

Saint-Rmy-de-Provence, France.

He's known better

as Nostradamus,

the apothecary and seer

who published his

collections of prophecies.

From the rise of Adolph Hitler

to the nuclear destruction

of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

From the terrorist attacks of

2001 to the end of the world,

Nostradamus has

always been there.

But all of these prophecies

were discovered after he died,

after he had written them

down, and after the events.

- [Voiceover] The day

of doom is coming!

- [Narrator] Now

then, his quatrains

are predicting our

own immediate future:

The fall of technology,

and the almost total destruction

of mankind as we know it;

the rise of a huge Islamic

army led by the antichrist

that will begin a

third world war;

the invasion of the West

by the Chinese hordes.

All of these and more

are being discovered

in the writings of a man

from 16th century France.

Now we are seeing

the interpretations

of his predictions

before the events.

The question is:
is it true?

Are we about to witness

the most cataclysmic era

in mankind's history?

The world of Nostradamus

was a world of secrecy.

(bleak music)

He spent years building around

himself an aura of mystery.

He claimed that the

danger of his own time

required that his

words were written down

in enigmatic sentences that

he called cloudy obscurity.

In 1558, a text stated

about Nostradamus

that he was:
"a certain

brainless and lunatic idiot

"who is shouting

nonsense and publishing

"his prognostications and

fantasies on the streets."

The astrologer Laurens

Videl wrote in his

"Declaration of the

Abuses, Ignorances

"and Seditions of

Michel Nostradamus"

that, "If I wanted to

recite all the ignorances,

"errors and idiocies that

you have been putting

"in your works for the

last four or five years,

"it would need a

pretty big book."

Ever since the publication

of his first book in 1555,

it has almost never

been out of print.

It is said he predicted

worldwide events,

births, catastrophes,

and even world wars.


Most academics say that any

associations with real events

and the prophecies of

this 16th century man

are purely coincidental,


or are so thin as it takes

nothing to make them snap.

(emotional music)

But is this the truth?

As we are now well

into the 21st century,

could there be prophecies

that have new meaning?

Could there be a new

science to explain

just how Nostradamus

predicted the future?

Indeed, there are

predictions that he made

and which are fast approaching.

Better now to know

the truth before.

(severe music)

We will begin by taking

a look at his life.

Michel de Nostredame was one

of at least nine children

of the notary Jaume de

Nostredame and Reynire,

the granddaughter of a

physician in Saint-Remy.

His father's family

had been Jewish

but had converted to Catholicism

and taken the surname

Nostredame, meaning 'our lady'.

There is very little known

about the childhood

of Nostradamus.

We know that at the age of 15

he entered the

University of Avignon,

stayed there for one year,

and then was forced to leave

when the plague broke out

and the university

closed its doors.

According to the

accounts of Nostradamus,

he then proceeded to travel

the countryside for eight years

as he researched

herbal remedies.

He then entered the

University of Montpelier

to study medicine.

He was then expelled for

practicing apothecary
