World Trade Center Attacks

People who are looking to debunk prophesies about the World Trade Center attacks please visit this page at snopes.com, a popular and thorough hoax debunking site. Thankfully, from my logs I can tell there are many such rational thinking people.

An e-mail [message] currently making its way around the Web claims that the 16th century French "seer" penned this little stanza in 1555.

Come the millennium, month twelve,
In the home of greatest power,
The village idiot will come forth
To be acclaimed the leader.

Partisan smack? Yes. But Nostradamus? A quick scan of Nostradamus' prophecies online shows that this little ditty is bogus – though a loose interpretation of the N-man's notoriously cryptic prose has some believers claiming Nostradamus did indeed predict the rise of President-elect W. and some of the electoral madness that ensued in Florida.

The following year revealed by a flood,
Two leaders elected, the first will not hold on
For one of them refuge in fleeing shadows,
The victim plundered who maintained the first.

Of course, some Democrats prefer this selection to show that perhaps the Frenchman did indeed foresee the Bush victory:

To an old leader will be born an idiot heir,
weak both in knowledge and in war.
