Blind Bulgarian Mystic Predicted Rise of ISIS and More

She’s been called the Nostradamus of the Balkans because her predictions so far are said to be 85% accurate. Among the many events she is believed to have predicted correctly are the 9/11 attacks in the U.S., the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami, the Fukushima nuclear disaster and the election of Barack Obama. Her prediction of a “great Muslim war” in 2016 has both believers and non-believers worried. Who was Baba Vanga and should we fear her predictions?

Born Vangelia Pandeva Dimitrova on January 31, 1911, she was sickly and not expected to survive. However, she recovered and as a child pretended to be a healer. At 12, she was allegedly carried off by a tornado (local weather records do not verify this) and found with her eyesight damaged by dirt and sand. She eventually became totally blind and lived out her life in Bulgaria.

Baba Vanga claimed her paranormal abilities came from so-called invisible creatures that informed her about other people and their futures. She became popular during World War II as a source of information about loved ones in battle or war zones. Being illiterate, her prophesies about world events were written down by others and published.

Even with the misses, Baba Vanga had many believers

Do her prophesies qualify Baba Vanga as a babushka-wearing Nostradamus? Besides those mentioned earlier, she supposedly predicted the break-up of the Soviet Union, the Chernobyl disaster, the date of Stalin’s death, the sinking of the Russian submarine Kursk and , the September 11 attacks and the victory of Bulgarian chess master Veselin Topalov in the FIDE World Chess Championship 2005.

Her misses include the start of World War III in 2010 and a game between two teams beginning with “B” in the 1994 World Cup football final (Brazil made it but Bulgaria lost in the semifinals on a controversial call).

Baba Vanga was wrong about a World War III in 2010

Baba Vanga was wrong about a World War III in 2010

Baba Varga’s predictions about the rise of ISIS include the Arab Spring in 2010 and the conflict in Syria where “Muslims would use chemical warfare against Europeans.” She saw an invasion of Europe by Muslim extremists in 2016 that would cause the continent to become a “wasteland almost entirely devoid of any form of life” and “cease to exist.” She predicted that the end would occur in 2043 with the establishment of a caliphate headquartered in Rome.

On the upside, Baba Vanga’s future predictions include the first manned flight to Mars in 2028, a man-made star in 2100, humans becoming androids in 2111 and Hungary receiving the first communication from aliens in 2125. Oh, and the world will in 5079 when humans leave this universe to look for another one.

Do we believe Baba Varga? Many of her predictions are vague and open to interpretation and misinterpretation. And many of those who want to believe her predictions for a “great Muslim war” are unwilling to also believe her predictions for global warming.

Shortly before her death in 1996, Baba Vanga said a 10-year-old blind girl living in France would inherit her gift. Maybe we should find her first.

    If a caliphate is established-and I don’t believe it will be, even with all the westerners with their heads in the sand…but if it is, there won’t be any of those tech breakthroughs she talks about, because we will be living in a new dark age.

    Did she predict that internet memes would become an intellectual virus that set off a chain reaction of oversimplification and reductionism that would destroy critical thinking for good?

  • Jason

    85% is good. Michele DeNostradamas wasn’t that good and also very vague. He referred to a Hister, close to Hitler. We should look at clues within her prophecies. She wasn’t far off on the World War 3 prediction. It really started with the Arab spring in 2010.. It’s taking awhile to develop.

    Did she say hungry aliens. uh oh.

    Not necessarily. As far as super conservative religious nutjobs go, the fundamentalist Muslims are more pro-science than fundamentalist Christians are. Still, though…I don’t want to see any daesh ‘caliphate’ take over anywhere.

  • HaywoodZarathustra

    5079 it all ends? So a few days off until we turn out the lights.

  • Sergiy Michael

    Those are not Vanga predictions and proved to be fakes made by russians.. This list of year by year..

    However you may despise fundamentalist Christians,
    I have not seen any performing public revenge beheadings.

    What science are these Muslims so interested in,
    Mr. Scimitar cordless sword sharpeners?

    Sir Isaac Newton spent twice as much time studying the Bible as he did with his studies in physics-
    Was he anti-science?

    I follow Christ IN SPITE OF what passes for Western Christianity-
    People can accuse religion of war all they want to


    it is the abuse of science that has given man
    the power to destroy himself and his world,
    not the abuse of religion.

    That is not “science”-
    it’s just the worst form of SCIENTISM.

    Look it up.

    We now have so much power through knowledge
    but we have forsaken the wisdom to share it and apply it.

    The singular most powerful achievement man has ever attained
    has been…

    Is that the science that that you refer to
    fundamentalists Muslims being so in favour of?

    “Guard what has been entrusted to you,
    avoiding worldly and empty chatter
    and the opposing arguments of what is falsely called “science”.
    -I Timothy 6:20

    Science can be an amazing thing…
    Scientism is ultimately and unspeakably horrendous.

    Many people are quite enthusiastic about criticizing the abuse of religion-
    Why are they so blatantly and willfully ignorant of the abuse of science?

    The sad thing is that so many gung ho devotees of science aren’t even aware of the existence of scientism.
