TIL about a blind Bulgarian mystic called Baba Vanga who passed away in 1996 but who left behind predictions for every year until 5079, at which point she believed the universe would cease to exist.

  1. Why don’t they provide a link to each of the predictions for every yeer? (or do they, adn I missed it?) Meanwhile, the wiki page gives this:

    > Unfulfilled predictions of Vanga (from the book by L. Orlova Vanga. A Look at Russia):
    2010: The World War will begin in November 2010 and end in October 2014. It will start as usual, then nuclear weapons will be used first, and then chemical weapons.
    2011: As a result of the radioactive fallout, neither animals nor vegetation will remain in the Northern Hemisphere. Then Muslims will start a chemical war against the surviving Europeans.
    2014: Most people will suffer from ulcers, skin cancer, and other skin diseases as a consequence of chemical warfare.
    2016: Europe will be almost deserted.

    So… not overly accurate…

  2. I can do that too. In the year 2045 a shadow will fall over poeple from the west and skies will be black.

    Call me back when you hail me as a prophet.

  3. A universe that would require billions of years to have anything propagate at the speed of light will cease to exist in a single year?

    That sort of discredits the rest of the predictions.

  4. A blind woman made predictions? Wow she must be legit! Unlike all those fake mystics who made predictions over the last several thousand years that never came true.

  5. It’s not super well known what she really said and didn’t say because the Communist party (at the time Bulgaria was a totalitarian state behind the Iron Curtain) would constantly make up shit on her behalf.
