To some, a direct connection between the sky god of Tiwanaku, physically present in the Andes during early medieval times, and some of the Nostradamus prophecies, published in France nearly a thousand years later, may seem incomprehensible, and unprovable even if true. However, this is not the place to theorize about the technological powers of a galactic super-civilization. This article merely concerns evidence of the link.
Before we begin, we need to get the timing straight. We need to know precisely when the sky god appeared in Tiwanaku. In earlier articles, I argued that the Nazca Lines were made to attract, entertain, and guide the sky god of Tiwanaku, so we should look at Nazca as well.
Nazca: The Nazca Lines themselves cannot be dated via radiocarbon analysis. In the paper Dating the geometric Nasca lines in the Peruvian desert, W.J. Rink & J. Bartoll state: “Wooden posts at the intersections of two different sets of lines have given uncalibrated 14C dates of AD 525 +/- 80 and 490 +/- 80 (Bray 1992).” Allowing time for the trees to grow and perhaps existing for a while prior to being used to stake out the lines, it is safe to assume that the geoglyph project began in the late sixth century or early seventh century. The period AD 600 to AD 700 would be a good guess for this project.
Tiwanaku: This city is extremely old but archaeologists have noted stages of development. The expansionist sky-god phase is generally believed to have begun around AD 600. Wikipedia quotes William H. Isbell: “Tiahuanaco underwent a dramatic transformation between AD 600 and 700 that established new monumental standards for civic architecture and greatly increased the resident population.” This was their sky god epoch.
In summary, we are looking for the sky god to have appeared in Tiwanaku toward the end of the sixth century AD. Let’s now see what the Nostradamus prophecies have to say about this. The following prophecy is numbered VI-2:
In the year five hundred eighty more and less,
One shall await a very strange century,
In the year seven hundred and three (skies in testimony)
Many kingdoms one to five shall make change.
Nostradamus was certainly courageous translating (from sixth-century Latin ) and publishing this prophecy because the given dates are centuries before his time. No doubt, he anticipated that his readers would imagine an addition of one thousand years, and indeed they did. We merely observe that there are seven directly dated prophecies and all the others contain the word “thousand.” “Thousand” in French is “mil,” a tiny word that can fit in almost anywhere.
So in AD 580, one awaited a very strange century of unusual developments in the Andes. Note that the given time frame, AD 580 to AD 703, accurately covers the building of the Nazca Lines and the cultural boom in Tiwanaku. Also note the phrase “skies in testimony” in the third line, which alludes to something verifiable only from the sky, i.e. the Nazca geoglyphs.
Nonetheless, it is certain that the cynics will continue to insist that we need to imagine the addition of one thousand years, so it would helpful it the sky god could provide independent support for the AD 580 date. Let’s now look at his first prophecy, numbered VIII-76:
More “Macelin” than king in England,
Born in obscure place, by force he shall attain the empire,
Of loose morals, without faith, without law, the ground shall bleed,
His time is so near that I sigh.
The year AD 580 and following decades seem to have been quite uneventful in Europe, the main exception being the region of Mercia in England, where a king by the name of Penda built up an empire by brutally conquering neighboring kingdoms. Historians are unsure when and where Penda was born (born in obscure place), but he is often believed to have been born in AD 576. This king was infamous for his wickedness (of loose morals) and his ruthlessness (without law), He was a pagan (without faith) and one of the bloodiest personages ever.
There was a lot of confusion in the Latin-based languages between the letters “l” and “r”. For example, the city of Algiers is spelled “Alger” in French and “Argel” in Spanish. In the prophecies we find, for example, “blanche” in one sixteenth-century publication and “branche” in another. It is therefore well within the rules to change the “l” in the mystery word “Macelin’ to an “r”, giving us a perfect anagram of Mercian. Thus, the first line now reads: More Mercian than king “in” (not “of”) England.
Mercia, however, was a long way from the Andes. If we are going to believe that the sky god of Tiwanaku decided to embark on a writing career, we really need to see some stuff about the Andes. Let’s now have a look at prophecy number I-53:
Alas! that you shall see a great people tormented,
And the holy law in total ruin,
By other laws all of Christianity,
When of gold, of silver new mines found.
In the seventeenth century, a Nostradamus commentator by the name of Theophilus de Garencieres noted that this prophecy applied to the Spanish conquest of Peru and their brutal treatment of the Andeans. Laws known as the “New Laws” were notorious for their cruelty toward the Andeans, forcing them to hard labor in the mines until death.
Note that this prophecy begins with the word “Alas”, a personal expression of grief on the author’s part, no doubt for the misfortune experienced by the descendents of his Andean friends.
This prophecy of the Andes is only the beginning. More than a dozen prophecies concern historical events related to South America, including a couple of sensational ones about the Incas of Peru. The sky god also manages to toss in some intriguing information about himself and his powers.
The story of the Andes will continue in Tiwanaku Alien and the Nostradamus Prophecies – Part 2. By the time we complete this story, it should become quite believable that the sky god of Tiwanaku was the original author of some of the Nostradamus prophecies.
