Dear Editor:

A mysterious book of cryptic prophecies has been discovered at the National Library in Rome, and there is evidence that it's the final book of the most famous and controversial prophet in the history of the world; Nostradamus. The book contains startling predictions that line up with modern scientific discoveries of today. These discoveries point to the effects of the galactic alignment as we pass through the galactic plane of the Milky Way.

An image from the Lost Book shows the constellation of Sagittarius, who runs his great bow and arrow toward a lady (the Milky Way). The tip of his arrow (the sun) is at the center of the galaxy. At this time the sun is perfectly aligned with the galaxy's center, which may well be the black hole, that's about to devour the planet earth.

The dark rift is located between the zodiac sign of Sagittarius and Scorpio. The arrows of Sagittarius point to the dark rift, where the gravitational waves come from within the black hole. The arrows lien up every 11,000 years, and the scientists believe that the galactic superwave of 2012 has already begun. It's here, at the dark rift, where the gravitational wave exists as a flat plane along the equatorial region of the Milky Way, and sends the gravitational wave across any passing solar system, including the earth and sun, causing earthquakes in the sun and on all the planets. In this region there are broken planets and asteroids that may cause near-massive object collisions with earth. According to Nostradamus, when we pass this region there will be a shift in the rotation of our solar system. Most of the polar caps will melt during the time frame as 2012 and 2013 approach. Whole continents will be under water in a matter of hours. The earth will lose its orbit around the sun and massive earthquakes will begin because of the polar shift and gravitational waves. There will be a quick sinking of the land, along with solar flares, and gamma radiation during our passing through the equatorial plane of the galaxy.

On December 24, 2004, a magnitude 9.3 earthquake occurred in the Indian Ocean off the coast of Sumantra, Malaysia. It caused a powerful tsunami that devastated coastal regions of many countries and left over 24,000 people either dead or missing. It was the worst tsunami to affect that area since the 1993 volcanic explosion of Krakatao. The earthquake that produced this tsunami was so strong that it exceeded by a factor of 10, any earthquake to occur anywhere in the past 25 years. It was discovered (with alarm) that just 44.6 hours later, gamma ray telescopes orbiting the earth picked up the arrival of the brightest gamma ray burst recorded in modern history. The gamma ray burst arrived on December 27, 2004. It was 100 times more intense than any other burst previously recorded, equaling the brightness of the full moon.

Scientists warned back in August of 2012 that the earth could be hit by a "solar tsunami" any time now. An unusually complex magnetic eruption on the sun had flung a cloud of electrically charged participles toward earth. a Small solar flare, the size of the earth, erupted about sunspot 1092. The satellites also recorded a large filament of cool gas that stretched across the sun's northern hemisphere and exploded into space. The explosion was aimed directly at earth and sent a solar tsunami racing 93 million miles across space. They believe earth could be hit with unpresented levels of magnetic energy from solar flares after the sun wakes up from a deep slumber sometime around 2013.

When the gravitational waves affect the sun, it will send out massive solar flares (like the X45 flare in 1903) which hit Mars, but this time toward the earth with more frequency as global warming accelerates. During this passing, the earth will leave its orbit around the sun. Massive earthquakes will begin because of the polar shifts and gravitational waves, and continents will sink. Their frequency will increase dramatically as 2012 draws near and on into 2013.

Nostradamus prophesied of three eclipses that would come about before the end of the world. There was the annual eclipse of May 20, 2012 when the moon moved between the earth and the sun to turn our star into a ring of fire. The lunar eclipse of June 4, 2012 reversed the order of the earth and moon, so that the moon was eclipsed instead of the sun. There was the transit of Venus on June 5 and 6, when the second planet moved directly between the earth and the sun. And if these aren't the three, there was a solar eclipse on Nov. 13, 2012, as war broke out in the Middle East. Nostradamus prophesied that the third eclipse will be darker than any other to make us think that the earth has lost its natural movement and that it will be submerged in the abyss of perpetual darkness. This eclipse will be a decisive factor for great disasters that will be unleashed and the galactic alignment will bring about the cataclysm. Does one more eclipse await us?

There is another interesting face. On 12-31-2012, the second largest known near-earth object ever, comet Eros, with a maximum diameter of 10 km will pass the earth at a distance of 16.6 million miles (70 times the distance from the earth to the moon). Near massive objects and meteorites may occur due to the weakening of the Van Allen belts. If some people do not experience flooding, they will experience fire and burning from solar flares. Nostradamus points to the entry into the Age of Aquarius after Dec. 21, 2012, and according to predictions, during this period major war will escalate for resources between the Christian and the Muslim faiths. The Pope is prominent in his lost book. Interestingly he sees the pope wearing three rings on his head, and they have significance. These are three rings of power that control most of the world: Washington D.C., the City of London and the Vatican. These three areas of power are not shared with the Muslim world, China or Russia and hence the war, that some say in the Armageddon.

Out of all the research I've done, I have no doubt about was prophecy I believe in who I believe in.

"And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon and in the stars; And upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the eaves roaring; Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after these things which are coming on the earth: For the power of heaven shall be shaken."

Jesus Christ Luke 22:25.
