Predictions made many centuries ago have actually come true in the modern day
Many people feel skeptical when they hear of ancient predictions that came true. However, sometimes proof appears that makes the prediction undeniable.
Many ancient prophets formulated predictions about the future that become a reality. Similarly, early scientists projected with accurate visions how things would turn out today. Occasionally, film and television have also predicted the future.
We present for you below many visionary minds. Minds who spookily predicted events, sometimes centuries later after the fact.
Nostradamus is one of the most famous seers in history. He was born in 1503 and practiced as a doctor and astrologer. He published his famous book “Les Propheties” in 1555, and it is still a best seller today.
And for good reason. Countless of Nostradamus’s predictions within his book have come true, many centuries later.
Here are some examples:
- “The lost thing is discovered, hidden for many centuries. Pasteur will be celebrated almost as a God-like figure. This is when the moon completes her great cycle, But by other rumors, he shall be dishonored.” – this prophecy appears to be about Louis Pasteur. He discovered microbial decay during the 1800s. This changed history and the world celebrated He was also later dishonored when the New York Times suggested he was untruthful about how he produced the vaccine for anthrax.
- “Earthshaking fire from the center of the Earth Will cause tremors around the New City. Two great rocks will war for a long time, Then Arethusa will redden a new river.” – The prediction here appears to be about the 9/11 terrorist attack on the Twin Towers in New York.
- “PAU, NAY, LORON will be more of fire than of the blood, To swim in praise, the great one to flee to the confluence. He will refuse entry to the Piuses, The depraved ones, and the Durance will keep them imprisoned.” – What is interesting about this prophecy is it appears to clearly show an anagram for Napoleon. During his reign, he also had Pope Pius VI and Pope Pius VII imprisoned.
John Elfreth Walkins Jr.
John Elfreth Walkins Jr. was an American civil engineer. In 1900, “The Ladies Home Journal” published his predictions of how the world would be 100 years later.
Altogether, he made around 28 predictions. With some, he was completely wrong. He suggested that by the year 2000 we would have eliminated not only mosquitoes but the letters C, X, and Q from the alphabet.
Nevertheless, he was spookily correct about many other things.
- “Wireless telephone and telegraph circuits will span the world.” – This prediction appears to be about our current wireless telecommunications.
- “Man will see around the world. Persons and things of all kinds will be brought within focus of cameras connected electrically with screens at opposite ends of circuits, thousands of miles at a span.” – Walkins appears to predict television.
- “Photographs will be telegraphed from any distance. If there be a battle in China a hundred years hence, snapshots of its most striking events will be published in the newspapers an hour later” and “photographs will reproduce all of nature’s colors.” – This prediction appears to foresee not only color photography but also digital photography.
- “Huge forts on wheels will dash across open spaces at the speed of express trains today. They will make what are now known as cavalry charges” – Here, he appears to predict the modern tank.
