Nostradamus

Born in France, 1503, Michel de Nostredame originally attended medical college and became a specialist in the Plague. It wasn't until he turned to writing in 1550 however, that Nostradamus began to make predictions about the future. He was twice married, and had a total of 8 children. 

Nostradamus wrote a vast number of predictions in total, ranging from weather and crop-prospects to war and major events. The technique he claimed to use to predict these events, was what he called 'comparative horoscopy', which involved looking at horoscopes and working out when major elements of past events would happen again. 

It is thought that only 5-10 percent of his predictions have been fulfilled with 100 percent certainty. Although many of his predictions have been apparently fulfilled, there is still the fact that a lot of them can be seen to mean a variety of things.

Joke of the Day

Jack is on his death bed, and he says to his wife, 
"Can you give me one last wish?" 
She says, "Anything you want." He says, "After I die, will you marry Larry?" She says, "But I thought you hated Larry." 
With his last breath, he says, "I do."

The Pathfinder Mysteries...



In the summer of 1997, NASA’s Jet Propulsion laboratory successfully landed a surface probe on Mars. The probe, called Pathfinder, did not transmit for the first couple of days. Most people believe the failure stemmed from technical difficulties. The truth is that NASA may have been receiving transmissions the entire time, but didn’t want us to know what they found..

Christian "FISH"

True Origin of Christian "FISH" Symbol...

For many pop-culture Christians, the "fish" decal on the back car bumper, or attached to a key chain or door is a symbol of their religion, and a feel-good statement about Jesus Christ. Early Christians used the fish as a recognition sign of their religion. It is also identified as the "Ichthus," an acronym from the Greek, "Iesous Christos Theou Uios Soter," or "Jesus Christ the Son of God, Saviour." Oxford English Dictionary (C.E.) defines "Ichthyic" as "of, pertaining to, or characteristic of fishes; the fish world in all its orders."


But contemporary Jesus worshippers might be surprised, even outraged, to learn that one of their preeminent religious symbols antedated the Christian religion, and has its roots in pagan fertility awareness and sexuality.
