A Modern Nostradamus Has Predictions For 2018 You Can Ignore For Two Obvious Reasons
It's that time to look ahead to the coming year again and a favorite tradition online is revisiting prognostications for the future from so-called mystics and other alleged seers.

More importantly, though, this offers us an opportunity for a teachable moment on confirmation bias and sourcing, which sometimes seem to be humanity's biggest roadblocks to continued progress and prosperity.

Today's lesson comes courtesy of the late Bulgarian mystic and clairvoyant Vangelia Gushterova, better known as Baba Vanga, a kind of latter-day Nostradamus.


Baba Vanga is said to have predicted that nuclear and chemical war would bring World War III to Europe from 2010-2014 and that the continent as we know it would cease to exist by the end of 2016.

That last bit in particular has been interpreted as Vanga's successful foreseeing of Brexit, which seems a bit of stretch. It also totally ignores the rather big miss that sets up the notion of Europe ending, namely the large-scale nuclear and chemical war she predicted that clearly never happened.

Yet still we see references to Vanga correctly "predicting Brexit" and also foreseeing the 9/11 attacks because she apparently once said something about America being attacked by "steel birds.
