There’s an email hoax making the rounds that suggests Nostradamus predicted September 11. This is indeed a hoax, and this site
does a good job debunking it.
In the hoax, the email lists two paragraphs of test that are supposed to have been written by Nostradamus in 1654 (he actually died in 1566). The second paragraph was written by someone who was trying to point out the predictability of these kinds of vague prophecies. Before you forward that next email, question whether or not it is a hoax – most forwarded letters are.
