See, this is why Benedict should have taken George Ringo as his regnal name.

We'd have John Paul, and then George Ringo, and then the reign of the Popes would end with..

Angry Drunk Bureaucrat: "...The City of the Seven Hills shall be utterly destroyed, and the awful Judge will judge the people."

I think this means that LA will be destroyed and that Scalia will be promoted to Chief Justice.



I was thinking that the "awful Judge" was a reference to Stallone.

If the next Pope is black, will he take the name, Malcolm XI?

Somewhat widespread apocalypse predictions (very incomplete listing): 183
Correct apocalypse predictions: 0

I'm obviously pretty nervous about this one though, it seems legit.

To me, the most shocking thing about this, is that it's somehow not Nostradamus.

You see, History Channel? You start putting on shows about truck drivers and alligators and what's the first thing that happens? Our Nostradamus obsession falls by the wayside. We're getting prophecies from old Popes and blacksmiths and it's just anarchy!

I've always been far more creeped out by these prophecies: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Three_Secrets_of_F%C3%A1tima

And I vaguely remember one from some girls in Mexico(?) that had needles put in their eyes (to test them!) while supposedly communing with God/archangel/Mary/whatever.  I, also vaguely, remember seeing grainy b&w video of them but my Google skills find nothing.

Another doomsday prediction?
I'm getting mighty sick & tired of stocking and unstocking that damned underground bunker of mine. Mrs. Henry won't go in it anymore after my "canned chili" aftermath.

Actually, there's a theory that it was a Nostradamus prediction, but he didn't want to sign his name to it because it was about the Church.  Telling the Catholic Church that they were eventually doomed once they a certain number of popes might not have gone over too well.
