Nostradamus was a French ‘seer’ that lived during the 16th century. I believe that he was a fortune-teller because Nostradamus studied astrology and sciences. He used sciences and astrology to predict the future and not the word of God. Nostradamus did predict some things like 9/11, Adolf Hitler and the Atomic Bomb (Hiroshima), he also predicted many things that never actually happened. A genuine prophet gets a great majority of their prophecies right.
