Any optimistic belief that ‘next year might be better than the last’ may have to be put on hold for a little while according to one prophet.
According to the infamous future caster Nostradamus – who boasts an incredible record of ‘predicting’ the rise of Hitler and the 9/11 attacks, 2019 is set to be a resounding misery across the globe. And it’s not likely to get better until at least 2046 if he’s proven to be right. In his 1555 book Les Propheties, French seer Nostradamus tipped 2019 to be the begging of an apocalyptic war that would span nearly three decades.
The book, compiled of 942 poetic quatrains that allegedly predict future events, also believes floods will swell across much of Europe, as well as a catastrophic earthquake erupting between California and Vancouver Island, in Canada.
Terrorism and religious extremism is also tipped to increase in the Middle East. It isn’t all bad though. The poetic clairvoyant did suggest political leaders would come together to battle climate change, as well as scientists developing a medicine that could allow us to live for 200 years.
