Baba Vanga, a blind Bulgarian mystic, has been hailed as “the Nostradamus from the Balkans” for her eerily accurate prophecies. Although she died in 1996 at the age of 85, she left the world predictions for many events that would occur centuries after her death.
Baba Vanga actually correctly predicted the September 11 terrorist attacks in New York, which occurred five years after her death. Way back in 1989, she foresaw that “two steel birds” would attack the “American brethren”.
“Horror, horror!” she continued. “The American brethren will fall after being attacked by the steel birds. The wolves will be howling in a bush, and innocent blood will be gushing.” Talk about creepy.
It certainly sounds like 9/11. Her followers have also claimed she accurately predicted many other global events, including the rise of ISIS, the 2004 Boxing Day tsunami, Brexit, and the successful election campaign of President Donald Trump.
For example, Baba Vanga claimed that Europe as we know it would “cease to exist” by the end of 2016 (the Brexit referendum was in July of that year – and we all know how that ended).
Incredibly, she also predicted that the 45th President of the United States, who happens to be Donald Trump, would be faced with a crisis, and “bring the country down” (and we all know how that’s going…).
But enough about the past, what did mystic Baba Vanga say about the future of planet Earth?
For one, she claims the icecaps will melt in 2045, and that the world as we know it will become uninhabitable by 2341, and most terrifyingly, that the universe will cease to exist entirely in the 51st century.
Sounds pretty dire, doesn’t it? At least those events are a long way off. However Baba Venga did make plenty of predictions for the upcoming 2018. So, what can we expect?
The first prediction for 2018 is about scientists discovering a new form of energy on the planet Venus. This may not actually be that farfetched. In July of next year, NASA is scheduled to launch the Parker Solar Probe.
The probe’s mission is to use Venus’ gravitational force to explore the outer corona of the Sun. Scientists plan to study solar wind and the energy that heats the plasma surrounding our sun. That sounds like the potential for a new energy source related to Venus, doesn’t it?
Okay, it might be stretching a bit, considering the mission hasn’t happened yet, and considering the similarities to the prediction, you never know. You have to admit it at least has the potential to come true!
Baba Venga also predicted the rise of China, and that the Asian nation would overtake the United States as a major superpower in 2018. Political analysts have been saying for years that China could rise to be a major world power.
The country’s economy has been growing rapidly in recent years, while the United States has been in a rather shaky position. The American contribution to the global GDP is expected to fall to a lower percentage than China’s current contribution by the year 2025.
Sounds a bit depressing, doesn’t it? Well, Baba Venga also said we’d end world hunger by 2028, so at least we’ve got that to look forward to within the next decade.
