Nostradamus (Michel de Nostredame) is the famous prophet from the 16th century. He predicted a great comet, Nibiru, or rogue planet, Planet X, would impact the Mediterranean on December 21, 2012, causing great destruction worldwide. With the coming of the end of the world this December 21, 2012, according to the Mayan calendar, there is a lot of interest in the apocalypse will occur near the end of 2012.
Here is that great prediction: The year 1999, seventh month, From the sky will come a great King of Terror: To bring back to life the great King of the Mongols, Before and after Mars to reign by good luck.
Although the prediction was supposed to happen back in July, 1999 the calendar was changed from Julian to Gregorian in the year 1582, which accounts for the difference.
So, get some bottled Nostradamus SKU 14050 now and see what predictions you have.
