Nostradamus Predicted Cannibalism, War & Robots in 2022

The French astrologer and doctor made some wild ‘n crazy predictions for 2022.

Well, buckle up, folks. There are a handful of terrifying predictions from Nostradamus coming up in 2022.

Michel de Nostradame, as he was known at the time, published his infamous book Les Prophéties back in 1555 — featuring 942 forecasts, which allegedly foretold the future.

From the horrors of the Second World War and the French Revolution to the Great Fire of London, Adolf Hitler’s rise to power and the creation of the atomic bomb, some of Nostradamus’s predictions have been eerily accurate. He is even said to have known John F Kennedy would be assassinated and the 9/11 terror attacks on the World Trade Centre in New York would happen.

2021 was a busy year for Nostradamus’ predictions, too. According to Sky History reports, the threat of an asteroid impacting the Earth has been at the forefront of predictions for the past few years. In April of this year, the Earth did have a near-miss with the Asteroid 2021GW4, which came within 12,324 miles of the surface of Earth as its closest point of approach.

Anyway, here is a look at what he thinks is going to happen in 2022.

Starvation and Cannibalism

One warning Nostradamus issued is about the rising prices in a failing economy and even a hint of cannibalism, stating stated:

“No abbots, monks, no novices to learn; Honey shall cost far more than candle-wax. So high the price of wheat, That man is stirred. His fellow man to eat in his despair.”

Rise of the Robots

Nostradamus wrote, The Moon in the full of night over the high mountain /The new sage with a lone brain sees it /By his disciples invited to be immortal/Eyes to the south. Hands in bosoms, bodies in the fire.”

I mean, we’re seeing it happen all the time now. There’s robot dogs patrolling neighborhoods in New York, fast food restaurants replacing its employees with patty flippin’ androids, and my Macbook listening to everything I say and type right now — waiting to take me out in my sleep.

Oh, boy. Here’s a heavy hitter. The French astrologer predicted a nuclear explosion that will trigger severe climate change. Here’s his message about the occurrence: “For forty years the rainbow will not be seen/For 40 years it will be seen every day/The dry earth will grow more parched/And there will be great floods when it is seen.” 

War or Invasion of France

A recurring theme throughout Nostadamus’ predictions is the invasion of France by a threat from the east. However, the following prediction is speculated to be referring to the spring of 2022:

“Blue-head shall white-head harm in such degree. As France’s good to both shall e’er amount.”

Much like all of Nostradamus’ predictions, this one is rather vague. While it could be alluding to the breakout of World War III, it could similarly be referring to France’s qualification into the 2022 Qatar World Cup.
