Nostradamus full of beans Yes. That guy again. But this shows how wrong the nonsense going around truly is.

"Steel birds"? I realize they're trying to say "airplane" in a text supposedly predating airplanes, but didn't it also predate steel?

If you know Nostradamus, you know he was a heretic in his time and learned to write in his own odd code, and in french.

So being that all this nonsense is based on some vague and arcane code read through a layer of renaisance era french makes the whole topic just reak of urban legend.

But its still somehow amusing, so why be such a bunch of party poopers??

Steel, in forms intentional and otherwise, exisited in some form at or before the time period listed. Apparently it's a hotly debated issue.

Not everyone is blessed with superior brain powers such as yours, Mr. Smarty Pants.
