What do Nostradamus and Edgar Cayce share in common?
When the terms “end of the world,” “apocalypse,” and “World War III” are mentioned, these are the ones who immediately come to mind. Five visionaries who foresaw wars and conflicts that overthrew regimes and collapsed civilizations, are featured in this post, and they are all women.
In Greek mythology, Cassandra, a daughter of the (last) Trojan King, Priam, got the gift of foresight from Apollo, the god of prophecy. Cassandra foretold the fall of Troy, when the Greeks attacked the city in order to redeem Helen from Paris, Helen’s lover and King Priam’s son. Despite Cassandra’s prophecy and warning that the Greeks would not stop attacking till Helen was delivered to her husband, Menelaus, King of Sparta, the conflict persisted. Nobody heeded her warning, and the Trojan Horse bearing the Greek warriors was also permitted inside the city’s premise, eventually causing the Fall of Troy.Source: Britannica.com

Sr Lucia Jesus dos Santos (1907-2005)
The three secrets revealed by the Blessed Virgin Mary to three children, Lucia and her cousins Francisco and Jacinta Marto, at Fatima, Portugal in 1917, reiterated conversion to Christianity and foreshadowed the end of WWI, the start of WWII, and the persecution of the Church, which culminated in Pope John Paul II’s attempted assassination in 1981. The prophetic messages were written down in the 1940s by Lucia, who was already a Carmelite nun at the time, at the request of the Bishop of Leiria.
Sylvia Browne (1936-2013)
In her 2008 book, End of Days, American psychic, radio/TV host, and author Sylvia Celeste Browne stunned the world by “predicting” a coronavirus pandemic by 2020. She also prophesied that following the death of a sitting president between 2008 and 2020, its Vice President successor will declare war on North Korea, asserting that the East Asian nation has an arsenal of weapons of mass destruction.
