06 Ways to view Nostradamus and the prophecies

One can view the interpretations "channelled" by the D.Cannon subjects
as the actual pronouncements of a living Nostradamus during his time,
sent to us via circumstances bordering on the miraculous, as a
channelling of Nostradamus from the afterlife (although the
"Nostradamus" personality in the books insists this is definitely not
the case) or merely as a new interpretation of his quatrain from
"some source" (for a skeptic the "source" might be the "imagination
of subject's subconscious"). Either way the interpretations given by
D.Cannon are the most clear and striking of all available in the
literature, and the least permeated with confused speculation.

A scathing work of criticism and ridicule has been levelled at
Nostradamus by the famous "debunker", James Randi. Nevertheless,
buried in the unparalleled closemindedness and vitriol, Randi makes
some reasonable points, the most damning of which, reiterated by the
skeptics through the centuries, is that Nostradamus' "predictions"
are veiled in such obscure symbolism that they could mean anything,
and that interpretations are impossible in the absence of precision
in language. He has a very valid point.

But the works of D.Cannon give us a renewed, fresh perspective into
the matter. Not only are the past predictions laid bare, but so are
all the future ones. These books give a very *precise* vision of the
future, with a rigor bordering on the quality of even scientific
papers (which themselves contain speculation and a lack of confidence
and absolute specificity at times). Perhaps the skeptics can argue
that the "fulfillment" of all his prior prophecies were merely due to
the creative interpretations or vivid imaginations of enthusiastic
supporters. But they will not be able to deny the reality of these
explicit visions as (or "if", as the case may be) it unfolds before
them.

If one takes the D.Cannon books as truly channeling Nostradamus, the
ultimate measure of Nostradamus' true talents will be revealed
shortly for us all to personally witness and attest to the presence
or lack thereof. And even if one ignores the Nostradamus aspect,
leaving aside for a moment the question of the "source" of the
predictions, the D.Cannon books contain a treasure trove of specific,
"falsifiable" predictions about our near future. Here is something
that is not buried in mysticism or obscurity and is open to any one
who has an open mind.
