RE: Horrible world trade center crash, (Nostradamus)

Sorry for the top-post, but this is another Internet hoax:

Source: http://www.nostradamus-repository.org/cityofgod.html

"The following quatrain has been circulating the Internet after the WTC
bombings.

In the City of God there will be a great thunder,
two brothers torn  apart by chaos,
while the fortress endures, the great leader will sucumb.
The third big war will begin when the big city is burning.

It is NOT by Nostradamus."

Even if this were by Nostradaus, this could be interpreted any way your mind
wants to make it fit.

I remember a high-school teacher who quoted Nostradamus as saying that the
"Third World War" would be started by a man from the Middle East wearing a
blue turban in the year 2000. Crazy.

Let's not let common sense give way to this type of hogwash.

This is the saying I received yesterday.  The city of God could refer to
many of the problems in Jerusalem.  The fortress would be the pentagon,
and the big city is still burning.  This kinda makes a bit more sense.

Sirs,

look this:

"In the City of God there will be a great thunder, Two brothers torn
apart by Chaos, while the fortress endures, the great leader
will succumb"

I wonder if NYC has _ever_ been referred to as 'the City of
God'. :) Even New
Yawkers probably wouldn't say that.
