The paper relates that fewer historical figures are as hotly debated as Michel Nostradamus, a 16th century physician who issued a series of four-line poems that seemed to predict subsequent major world events. The paper discusses how detractors argue that Nostradamus was a first-class con-man, who wrote purposely vague predictions that allow his forecasts to be applied to a variety of events. The paper shows, however, that some of his predictions had a degree of detail that supporters argue is much more than coincidence.
