A BLIND mystic who reportedly foretold 9/11, the 2004 Boxing Day tsunami, the Fukushima nuclear spill and the birth of ISIS also made dire predictions for 2016 and beyond.
Baba Vanga was born Vangelia Pandeva Dimitrova in Strumica, a village located at the foot of a volcanic mountain range in what was then the Ottoman Empire (present-day Republic of Macedonia). According to folklore, she led an ordinary life up until the age of 12, when she mysteriously lost her eyesight during a massive storm — described by some as a freak tornado. According to folklore, the youngster was flung into the air and then dashed to the ground by a powerful gust of wind.
What happened next is murky but her family reportedly found her in a terrible state several days later, her injured eyes sealed shut and encrusted with a thick layer of dust and dirt. Too poor to afford specialist care, she was relegated to a life of blindness.
Vanga later stated that she had experienced her first vision during the days she was missing and believed she had been instilled with the ability to heal people and predict the future. She was able to convince others of her paranormal powers and quickly developed a cult following. She became the go-to psychic for the rich and powerful and admirers, among them heads of state, scientists and historians, would come from all over the world for a few minutes in her company.
Bulgaria- Prophetess Baba Vanga, who died in 1996 aged 85, was known as “Nostradamus from the Balkans” thanks to a purported 85 percent success rate and has long been revered in Russia and Europe as a kind of supernatural saint.
Vanga is said to have made hundreds of predictions in her lifetime, including that there would be a ‘great Muslim war’ which would start with the Arab Spring in 2010.
She predicted it would take place in Syria and would come to a conclusion in 2043 with the establishment of a caliphate with Rome at its centre.
According to Vanga, Europe as we know it will “cease to exist” by the end of next year following the systematic elimination of entire populations, leaving the continent “almost empty”, a “wasteland almost entirely devoid of any form of life”.
If that sounds dramatic, consider the developments of the past year, which has seen ISIS edge perilously close to Europe with the taking of Sirte, a key Libyan city overlooking the Mediterranean and the birthplace of the late dictator Gaddafi.
Sirte is now an Islamic State colony operating under Sharia Law. The new regime reportedly cemented its authority by staging a series of public executions, during which an unknown number of people were crucified and beheaded.
And ISIS continues to gain ground in Syria, despite a massive bombing campaign by allied forces in the wake of the Paris attacks. To devotees and others consumed by fear of an impending apocalypse, it’s as if Vanga’s deadly prophecies are unfolding before their very eyes.
In 1989, the mystic is said to have made reference to the 9/11 terror attacks on New York by claiming ‘American brethren’ would be attacked by ‘two steel birds’.
Some suggest this was a reference to the two hijacked passenger jets that were flown into the World Trade Center.
She is also alleged to have predicted the effects of climate change 60 years ago by warning that polar ice caps would melt and cause sea levels to rise.
HOW A BULGARIAN VILLAGER PREDICTED MAJOR GLOBAL EVENTS
GLOBAL WARMING AND THE BOXING DAY TSUNAMI
In the 1950s, Vanga reportedly predicted how ‘a huge wave will cover a big coast covered with people and towns, and everything will disappear beneath the water’.
She also warned of the effects of climate change by suggesting ‘cold regions will become warm… and volcanoes will awaken.’
”Everything will melt, just like ice,’ she added.
THE 9/11 TERROR ATTACKS ON NEW YORK
In 1989, she is said to have made reference to the 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center.
News.com.au reports how she once said: ‘Horror, horror! The American brethren will fall after being attacked by the steel birds. ‘
She added that ‘innocent blood will gush.”
BARACK OBAMA BECOMING PRESIDENT
The pensioner once predicted that the 44th US president would be African American – but she also warned that he would be the ‘last US president’.
KURSK WILL BE COVERED WITH WATER
Predicted in 1980: The sinking of Russian nuclear submarine the Kursk in 2000.
It saw the crew die horrible deaths over several days while international rescue crews tried in vain to retrieve the vessel from the depths of the ocean. Until the tragedy, people assumed the “Kursk” Vanga referred to was the Russian city the Kursk was named for.
“At the turn of the century, in August of 1999 or 2000, Kursk will be covered with water, and the whole world will be weeping over it.”
LOOKING INTO THE FUTURE
Vanga made predictions for the next few centuries before she died. Highlights include her warnings that aliens will help civilisations live underwater by 2130 and that there will be a war on Mars in 3005.
In another apocalyptic message, she said everything on earth will die by 3797 – but that by this stage humans should be capable of moving to a new star system.
