The answer is: none! But nevertheless, there are circulating on the internet some really idiot but also possibly dangerous rumours, featuring some so-called “Nostradamus prophecies”, the coming of the AntiChrist and the End of the World in 2012. The theories are extremely idiot, but they get extremely dangerous too when you think of the lunatics who might be taking action because of rumours that are widely believed by Conspiracy Theorists and promoted through a wide range of White Power websites.Take a look, for instance, at this YouTube video, made by EdgarMetro and titled ObaMABUSh . EdgarMetro has made it impossible to embed his video, but you can still see his Making NonSense Story here .

“A telling documentary about the startling connections between the 15th century prophet Nostradamus and 9/11, Barack Obama, Bush, and the november elections,” says EdgarMetro. In his video, he speaks again of Nostradamus living in the 15th century, but the prophet was born on 14 December 1503 at St Rémy in the south of France… The so-called quatrain of Nostradamus he cites (about a City of God, where a third big war will start when this city is burning)  isn’t a quatrain written by Nostradamus. It’s a hoax, invented by a student, “who wanted to demonstrate how a Nostradamus-like passage can be so cryptically composed as to lend itself to myriad interpretations.” In two other quatrains, indeed written by Nostradamus, EdgarMetro & Co. invent  a “World Centre” to get at least one match with 9/11. 

EdgarMetro states Nostradamus predicted that the world will change in 2012 (“Change… Yes, we can!”) and that all of the Mayan and Aztec calenders end in 2012, suggesting that Nostradamus has predicted the End of the World in 2012. But this is also a pure invention by EdgarMetro & Co., now to get a match with Barack Obama and the End Time. Nostradamus has never said the world will come to an end in 2012. But he has warned us that there would come a “world dictator” called the AntiChrist, EdgarMetro says, and the next elected president will “precide over the coming of the AntiChrist”. This statement is followed by a picture of Barack Obama and a Nostradamus quatrain about “a great empire, torn from limb” and “a great power given to the dark one from slaves come”… that was in fact a pure invention by the satirical publication The Daily Squib.

EdgarMetro says Nostradamus prophesized “the name of the Antichrist as Mabus”. Rubbish too. Nostradamus has never said a Mr. Mabus will be the Antichrist. He only said that “when Mabus will die”, there will be “a horrible undoing of people and animals”. But the “true believers” of EdgarMetro & Co. don’t believe these facts, only their own fiction: they take the last two letters from “Obama” and the first three of “Bush” and they get “Mabus”. And who will be in the White House in 2012? A Black President, dammit! And what is the zipcode of Chicago? 60606! Eliminate the zero’s and you get 666, the Number of the Beast! And who lives in Chicago?…

The whole story is fully debunked here: Nostradamus: the Black President and the End of the World in 2012.
