Fired for letting family die?Edit

This bio says he didn't just "continue to travel" after his family died of plague, but took such a credibility hit for not stopping it that Scaliger (not specifically named there) sent him packing (and his in-laws wanted their dowry back). If that can be verified (or at least attributed to an esteemed historian), the article would do well to mention it.

I might look harder later if nobody finds out sooner. InedibleHulk (talk) 23:17, 12 March 2017 (UTC)

People Have Alleged That Falan Gong Persecution Was The July 1999 PredictionEdit

It is indeed an allegation, but one of prudence too. The Falan Gong persecution began on July 20, 1999 in a country which the Mongols where at war with.68.47.65.239 (talk) 21:06, 23 May 2018 (UTC)

Even this social science book references the claim about the persecution[1].68.47.65.239 (talk) 21:15, 23 May 2018 (UTC)

Date of BirthEdit

There seems to be unnecessary confusion for his date of birth. Nostradamus was born on December 14th 1503 using the old Gregorian calendar, which translates to December 23 in the current Julian calendar. The transition from the Julian to Gregorian calendar did not start until 1582 - 79 years after his birth.

Prediction of COVID-19 outbreakEdit

I checked the links that are given for the COVID-19 predictions, and they appear to be referencing a 2003 book, written in German (which I can't read). However, my wondering is if this book actually has any real 'prediction' in it, shouldn't it be quoted? Mulstev (talk) 03:07, 20 May 2020 (UTC)
