Baba Vanga, a Bulgarian clairvoyant, has hit the headlines after apparently correctly predicting the 9/11 terror attacks, the 2004 Boxing Day Tsunami and the rise of ISIS. But what else has she foreseen?
Baba Vanga, a Bulgarian clairvoyant, has hit the headlines after apparently correctly predicting the 9/11 terror attacks, the 2004 Boxing Day Tsunami and the rise of ISIS.
The blind psychic also made a chilling prophecy warning of an invasion of Europe by Muslim extremists in 2016.
She foresaw a "great Muslim war" which would begin with the Arab Spring in 2010, play out in Syria and end with the establishment of a caliphate by 2043 with Rome at its epicentre, reported .
Vanga, who died in 1996 aged 85, reportedly made hundreds of predictions in her 50-year career.
What else did she get right? And what does the future hold according to the mystical seer?
The Kursk nuclear submarine disaster
The Russian nuclear submarine "Kursk"
In 1980 the blind prophetess predicted that in August of 1999, “Kursk will be covered with water and the whole world will weep over it.”
Kursk was a Russian sub that Sank in the Barents Sea on August 12, 2000, killing all aboard.
In 1989 Baba Vanga said: “Horror, horror! The American brethren will fall after being attacked by the steel birds. The wolves will be howling in a bush, and innocent blood will be gushing."
On September 11, 2001, planes hijacked by Islamic extremists hit the World Trade Center in New York, killing thousands of people.
According to the prophetess, China will become a world power in 2018.
She’s probably out a few years here as China is already an economic and military powerhouse.
We’ve also apparently got a change in the earth’s orbit to look forward to some time before 2023.
A golden age
A new energy source will be created and global hunger will start to be eradicated between 2025 and 2028. A manned spacecraft to Venus will be launched.
Ice caps melt
Melting point: The ice caps will melt in just 15 or so years, says the Bulgarian mystic
From 2033 to 2045 the polar ice caps will melt, causing ocean levels to rise. Meanwhile, Muslims rule Europe and the world economy is thriving.
Cloning cures most diseases
The rise of cloning allows doctors to cure any disease as the body is simply and easily replaced.
The US will launch an attack on Muslim Rome using a climate-based ‘instant freezing’ weapon.
Red and green
Between 2072 and 2086 a classless, Communist society will thrive hand in hand with newly-restored nature
Life on Mars: The red planet will demand independence from our world
A LOT happens from 2170 to 2256, including a Mars colony becoming a nuclear power and demanding independence from the earth, the establishment of an underwater city and the discovery of something “terrible” during the search for alien life.
Some time between 2262 and 2304 we’ll crack time travel. Meanwhile French guerrillas fight the Muslim authorities in France.
The "secrets of the moon” will be unveiled.
The end of the earth
From 2341 a series of natural and man-made disasters render our home planet uninhabitable. Humanity escapes to another solar system, but resources are scarce and wars are waged as a result.
Going backwards - 3815 to 3878
Civilization has been destroyed and people live like beasts until a new religion rises to lead us out of the darkness.
Immortal alien hybrids
Integration: From 4302 to 4674 we'll assimilate with aliens
From 4302 to 4674 the concepts of evil and hatred have been eliminated, humans are immortal and have assimilated with aliens.
The 340 billion people scattered throughout the universe can talk to God. Which is nice.
The end of all things
In 5079 the universe will end. Bummer.
…. and the ones she got wrong
Not dead: Former PM Gordon Brown
2010 - Assassination attempts on four heads of state, potentially Obama, Sarkozsky, Netanyahu, Vladimir Putin and Gordon Brown. They’re all fine.
2010 to 2016 - Nuclear war. Nuclear fallout ravages the world. Europe abandoned and most people die of skin cancer from chemical weapons.
Unless we somehow missed it, this didn’t happen either.
Here are 13 predictions that the Blind Baba made for 2016 and beyond:
Barack Obama will be the last president of the US: Baba Vanga had predicted that the 44th US president would be an African American, but she had also added that he would be the last one. According to her, he would leave office at a time when the country would be in economic ruins, and there would be a huge divide between the northern and southern states – as was the case during the American Civil War.
Europe will cease to exist: According to Baba Vanga, the continent will cease to exist by 2016, and all that would remain will be empty spaces and wasteland, nearly devoid of any form of life. She is reported to have said that chemical weapons would be used by extremists against Europe.
Muslims will invade Europe: The blind mystic had also predicted that Muslims will invade Europe, and there will be widespread destruction by extremists, which will go on for many years, until the continent ceases to exist. She had also predicted that a Great Muslim War will begin in Syria.
China will become the new super power: As per her predictions, China is set to become the new superpower in 2018, bringing an end to the United States and its economy. According to her, the exploiters (the developed nations) will become the exploited (the third world). In 2011, the International Monetary Fund had also predicted that China’s economy will overtake that of the US in 2016, emerging as the new superpower.
Hunger eradication: Baba Vanga has predicted that hunger will get eradicated sometime between 2025 and 2028.
On to Venus: Humans will travel to Venus, according to the Baba, in search of new energy sources. They might even set up a colony there.
Rome as the capital of the Islamic caliphate: Islam will finish invading the whole of Europe by 2043, and Rome will be the capital of the new caliphate.
Ice caps melting: According to the Baba, ice caps will melt by 2045. The rate at which the ice caps are melting already due to global warming, does seem to suggest the same.
Cloning of organs: As per Baba Vanga’s predictions, body organs will be cloned in 2046, and that would be the easiest method of treatment.
US attacking Muslim dominated Europe: By 2066, the US will attack Muslim dominated Europe using climate change weapon, and will try to retake Rome and bring back Christianity.
The return of Communism: By 2076, communism will return to Europe and the rest of the world.
Underwater civilisations: By 2130, civilisations will learn how to live under water, with the help of aliens.
The death of the Earth: By 3797, everything on Earth will cease to exist. However, humans will be advanced enough to move to a new star system.
