Nostradamus was born in early 16th century and has become one of the world's most widely known and read prophets. But i am not familiar with all his prophecy. Does he really see the future? Is he really a prophet? Share your insight. Would love to hear further info.

He is a very interesting person to study. The problem with his prophecies is that they seem to only be known after the event has happened. Then people look back and can see what he meant in his sayings. I've read several books about him and I thought the prophecies are hard to understand. But, after something has happened and you go back to them - it makes sense.

It's been a long time since I've studied him, but one of his sayings is believed to refer to World War II. If I'm remembering right, he has the word Hister and some believe he is referring to Hitler.

I guess i have read that part long time ago, but i don't fully understand. Have you ever had some prophecy regarding the current generation? Say, what will happen on the next few years.

There is always disagreement about what his predictions meant. My personal belief is that the power to forecast future is a 'dark' power, and if it is not from GOD I do not want anything to do with it. The test of any sort of 'future' seer is if they are ever wrong, if they are wrong it does not come from GOD.

I believe too, but i am thinking how does Nostradamus called a prophet by some. If ever he really has vision for the future, where are those from? Usually as far as I remember those visions from God are seen by the prophets through their dreams. So, how about Nostradamus?

There are controversial interpetations of his centuries. And there are many researchers who try to analize his prediction.I think that he is a prophet,but the modern world misunderstand it.
