Baba Vanga was a Bulgarian clairvoyant who died in 1996. She was fondly known as the Nostradamus of the Balkans, since she was famous for her mostly accurate predictions of what will happen in the future. She was born as Vangelia Pandeva Dimitrova, in Strumica, Macedonia and lost her eyesight when she was 12 years old. She became famous for her predictions and healing touch during the Second World War. She passed away in 1996 due to breast cancer and her house was then turned into a museum.
She had predicted some very chilling and accurate things like the date of the death of Tsar Boris III, the breakup of Soviet Union, Global warming, unification of Germany and many more such predictions came true. Here are 6 of her top predictions, some came true and for some we have to wait for the future to unfold the mystery and give us the answer.
1 Kursk nuclear submarine disaster
The Kursk nuclear submarine disaster refers to the sinking of an Oscar class Russian nuclear submission in the Barents Sea on August 12, 2000. The nearby ships mentioned registering 2 explosion sounds, which were registered on the seismograph in Alaska. The submarine sank to the bottom of the sea along with all of the 118 crew members on board, who died. The explosion was caused due to faulty welding on a torpedo, which caused the fire and resulted in explosion of 5-7 other torpedo warheads in the submarine.
2 China will be the new super power
Another big prediction from Baba Vanga was that China will become the new superpower leaving the United States and Russia behind by a mile. This will happen in 2018 and will end the country of United States and its economy will be destroyed. She also said that the developed nations which exploited the third world nations will then become the exploited ones, while the third world nations will become the exploiters. The International Monetary Fund also predicted that China will overtake the economy of US by 2016 end and will become the new superpower.
3 9/11 attacks
Who can forget the terrorist attacks on The World Trade center and the Pentagon by Al-Qaeda who hijacked 4 planes and proceeded to crash 2 of them into the twin towers of WTC, burning them to the ground and causing massive loss of lives and property. Baba Vanga had predicted these attacks before her death, saying “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 gush,” to her followers.
4 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami
Baba Vanga had also predicted one of the most devastating natural disasters to happen in the human history. On- 26 December, 2004 an earthquake in the Indian Ocean which was 9.3 on the Richter scale rocked the waves and had the island of Sumatra as its epicenter. This triggered devastating tsunamis in the Indian Ocean which took lives of 230,000 people in 14 countries like Sri Lanka, India, Bangladesh, Somalia etc were badly destroyed by the waves which were more than 8m in height.
5 Barack Obama as US president
Baba Vanga had predicted that the 44th United States president would be a black man from African descent. This became true when Barack Obama was sworn into presidency of the United States of America as their 44th President. Incidentally, she had also predicted that Obama would also be the last acting president of the US, because by the time he will leave the office, the US economy would have collapsed and there would be a huge disagreement and divide between the northern and southern states on US, a repeat of the American Civil War.
6 Predictions about Mankind
She had also left the humanity some very interesting predictions. She predicted that hunger would be eradicated form the world by 2028. Cloning of organs of the body will become the cheapest medical treatment by 2046. Communism will return to Europe by 2076. Humans will shift from Earth to Mars and other planets by 2256. Time Travel will be achieved by 2304. Earth will become inhabitable by 2341 and aliens will help us live underwater by 4674. And finally, the universe will end in 5079.
