PREDICTIONS THAT HAPPENED
Added on: 15th May 2015
THE FRENCH REVOLUTION
Nostradamus predicted that in France, the people would rise up and
rebel against the princes and lords. This happened in 1799 during
the French Revolution. This revolution changed the face of France
and paved the way for epic changes in the country’s
political and social system.
NAPOLEON BONAPARTE’S RISE IN POWER
Nostradamus predicted that a man named Napoleon Bonaparte would
rise in power, though the name was something like “Napaulon Roy.”
According to his prophecy, the man would be one of the most important
figures in history and that he would deny the Piuses entry. As it turned
out, during Napoleon’s time, Pope Pius VI and VII were locked up.
THE SUCCESS OF LOUIS PASTEUR AS A
MICROBIOLOGIST AND CHEMIST
One of the greatest predictions made by Nostradamus was that
“Pastor” would be praised like a demigod. Centuries since his
prediction, a man named Louis Pasteur introduced several
major scientific breakthroughs that made him one of
the greatest scientists of all time.
THE DEATH OF PRINCESS DIANA
During his time, Nostradamus predicted that “Diana’s life would be taken.”
At that time, nobody knew who Diana was. In 1997, Princess Diana
of Wales died from a fatal car accident.
ROBERT HEINLEIN PREDICTED
THE COLD WAR
In his short story “Solution Unsatisfactory”, Robert Heinlein describes
a United States that develops a nuclear weapon before the rest of
the world and becomes the only superpower, igniting a race
among other nations to develop a similar bomb. Which is exactly
what happened with the nuclear arms race and the cold war. This short
story was written in 1940-before the United States had joined World War II
and before it had conceived the possibility of a nuclear weapon.
ROBERT HEINLEIN PREDICTED
Not only did Robert Heinlein predict the cold war, he also nearly invented
waterbeds. As crazy as this might sound, in his 1961 novel
“Stranger in a Strange Land” he describes in detail such a bed.
So detailed in fact, that the eventual inventor had trouble patenting it.
JOHN ELFRETH WATKINS, JR. PREDICTED
A civil engineer turned curator at the Smithsonian Institute, Mr. Watkins
made some startling predictions in the year 1900. In his article
“What May Happen in the Next Hundred Years”, he made this
startling statement: “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.”
JOHN ELFRETH WATKINS PREDICTED
HIGH-SPEED TRAINS IN 1990
Writer John Elfreth Watkins predicted in the article entitled
“What May Happen in the Next Hundred Years” which he wrote in
1990 that in the 21st century, high-speed trains will be introduced.
That time, people thought he was insane. However, his prediction
came true when the first high-speed train was launched in
Boston and Washington that same year.
