Even he couldn't have predicted this

MMDE: Nostradamas

Current: Nostradamus

Googling for "Nostradamas" in English suggests you might have meant "Nostradamus" instead, but when you (currently) go ahead and search for that anyway, you get many references as well. So is this a spelling Mandela Effect change, or did this great man of mystery have an extra piece of wizardry up his sleeve, just lying in wait for 500 years, when his power to confuse Google would be unleashed upon an unsuspecting world?

Most people know the real controversy here is the vague wording in his prophesies, and the retroactive modern-day reinterpretation of them after the event. For example, he predicted the rise of Hister, which everyone assumed meant Hitler, but in fact the Hister was the name of a river, so was he merely saying one day it might rain a lot more than usual and cause it to swell?

Les Propheties

Nostradamus was French, and his book was published in 1555. Few people realise it's rarely been out of print since then - beating the King James Bible by 50 years.
