Overview

Do you think Nostradamus, the famous 16th century "Prophet of Provence," was some kind of magician, perhaps a doctor, astrologer, and seer, too? If so, Peter Lemesurier-s revelation that he was really just an ordinary man using an equally ordinary technique may come as a shock.
After re-examining the original sources, Lemesurier concludes that Nostradamus was in fact neither a doctor nor an astrologer, nor even (by his own admission) a prophet. He merely believed that history repeats itself, thus and projected known past events onto the future. To do so, he used the process of bibliomancy-randomly selecting extracts of randomly chosen books, then claiming "divine inspiration."
Unsurprisingly, he has almost never been proved right.
