Nostradamus Prophecies and Cryptographic deception

In the September 11 prophecy, a 1999 date was given but elsewhere the prophecies provided indications to advance two years (deception cryptography theory: the prophecies take measures to avoid a premature onslaught of attention). The "terror" prophecy, however, expressed the month of September as "sept mois," seventh month, not directly as "September." In his extensive analysis, St. George argued that for Nostradamus the year began on the Spring Equinox and not on January 1. Thus, to get rhyme with the word "Angolmois" at the end of the third verse, Nostradamus could have changed "September" to "sept mois" at the end of the first verse. Now, however, St. George sees another possibility: Maybe Nostradamus did not make a translation adjustment after all; maybe, instead, the prophecies are suddenly reverting to Nostradamus' calendar!

St. George therefore claims that the earthquake prediction is not officially dead until March 19, 2007, which would be the last day of 2006 on Nostradamus' calendar, likewise on the calendar used in London in 1666. St. George may find himself forced to abandon his cherished conclusion that the prophecies use only the Gregorian calendar. Here's the amended prediction: "one or two major earthquakes or ground-shaking catastrophes prior to March 20, 2007, resulting in massive death in either London or the Greek islands." Will it happen? Perhaps not, but St. George considers himself the world's leading authority on the prophecies and he says this is the last chance he sees for the prophecies to make a notable prediction in the advance of the event.

Why the last chance? St. George explains that the prophecies are coming to an end. They're exhausted. At best, there are two or three unfulfilled prophecies. One may concern Iran. Another may concern North Korea and an atomic explosion, about which he comments: "It is unhelpful to make a prediction like that. Such possibilities are in the news all the time these days. Any fool can make a prediction like that. It's valueless even if it comes true."

Consequently, according to St. George, the prophecies of Nostradamus can be declared officially dead on March 20, 2007. For unknown reasons, their author failed to supply us with a single instance of being able to predict an event. St. George, never doubting that the future was accurately foreseen because of overwhelming retroactive evidence, is dismayed: "You need a successful prediction. That's the only thing people understand. That's the proof. I personally don't need to see an advance prediction because I learned to comprehend the thought processes behind the already fulfilled prophecies. Perhaps an expert at solving cryptic crossword puzzles could comprehend some elements of those thought processes, but, in general, cryptic thinking seems beyond the reach of most people. A clear and successful prediction is therefore needed to attract the attention of the world's scientists."
