Nostradamus Predicts Spain To Win FIFA World Cup

It would appear that Nostradamus thinks Spain will win the world cup. Spanish newspaper 20 Minutos [1] (probably not related to Nine’s “60 Minutes”) has run a story which quotes one of Nostradamus’ prophecies, namely:

In the sixth month of 2006 the King of Spain will cross the Pyrenees with his troops. The legions of Beelzebub will battle him in central Europe and suffer doom and destruction. The Holy Grail will then come to Spain.

The only problem I can forsee here is that the world cup ends on July 9…still, when you write something nearly 500 years in advance, I think you can be forgiven for getting the date wrong by 9 days.

For the record, Spain are currently paying $11.00 on ACTTAB Sportsbet [2] to win the world cup.

Dude, the prophecy only says that the King of Spain will cross the Pyrennes in the sixth month, nothing about when he’ll return! A bigger problem with the prophecy is that the ‘King of Spain’ is not with the entourage. Reading the phrophesy metaphorically, I would say the King of Spain would be the greatest footballer in Spain, who is . . .joint Spanish-Brazilian citizen, Ronaldo!!!! Ah ah!

Hmmm, just another problem with the prophecy…

One does have to wonder if things would have been different if I hadn’t mentioned the (somewhat abstract) prophecy.

“Nostradamus would do a lot if he took Laxettes ! ” — That’s because he was ‘full of it’.

Word on the street is that Nostro was a prolific cannabis user, and used to speak about “drinking from the smoke of the lamp”.
