Randi subjects Nostradamus to an intense scrutiny, applying strict logic every step of the way
The end result is a colossal waste of time--- logic and prophesying don't mix. Neither do logic
and Quantum physics, for that matter. In the matter of Nostradamus' most famous prophesy,
i.e., the death of French King Henry II, Randi dissects the quatrain and scornfully proclaims
Lions were not King Henry's heraldic animal.
His jousting opponent could not be considered "young" and the king "old".
The king's visor was not made of gold.
Did I say Randi applied strict logic? Well, maybe not. Let's see:::
If you hear, "King of the beasts", what animal do you think of? That's right, lions, and the keyword is "King."
Henry's opponent is also a lion, as part of the pride, as it were.
At the time of the joust, Henry was 40 or 41, (pretty old for those times) while his opponent was 29.
Old and young, hmmm--- sounds okay to me.
Lastly, the king's visor was not made of gold. I dunno, but then neither does Randi. Anyway,
who cares? Maybe the visor was gilded, or something. Or maybe Nostradamus used the term
"golden" for some deep, mysterious, spooky reason! Hoo, hah!
