A Bulgarian woman who predicted the fall of the Twin Towers, Brexit and the rise of the Islamic State (ISIS), has two major predictions for 2018.
Baba Vanga, dubbed the ‘Nostradamus from the Balkans’, is widely known among conspiracy theorists, who believe she predicted natural disasters and global events before they occurred, The Sun reported.
Before she died, in 1996, Vanga left predictions up to the 51st century, when she believed the world would “cease to exist”.
Vanga has made some major predictions of what’s to come in 2018.
According to Vanga’s predictions, China will become the world’s next super power, taking over from the US and “a new form of energy” will be found on Venus, The Sun reported.
China’s economy has been steadily expanding over the last few years. In 1970, China made up just 4.1 per cent of the total world’s economy, but in 2015 it rose to 15.6 per cent.
While is has not yet overtaken the US, it could soon.
In 2015, the US contributed 16.7 per cent of the world’s economy but this is expected to fall to 14.9 per cent in 2025, according to Forbes.
There are no current plans to send a space mission to Venus, however, the Parker Solar Probe, named after the solar astrophysicist Eugene Parker, is scheduled to launch in July 2018.
While it won’t land on Venus, it will use the planet’s gravitational force to pass around the sun.
So, could these predictions come true?
Vanga supposedly also predicted 9/11 by claiming “two steel birds” would attacked the “American brethren”.
She reportedly said, “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 be gushing.”
She was also said to have predicted Brexit, and she warned of the rise of an extremist Muslim army that would invade Europe.
However, according to The Sun, last year it was claimed she said that Barack Obama would be the “last American president”, which falsely led some to believe Donald Trump would never be elected.
Other future events Vanga warned the world about, include the end of the world hunger by 2028, Mars colonies gaining nuclear weapons by 2256 and Earth becoming inhabitable from 2341.
