Baba Vanga’s followers consider the Bulgarian mystic the Balkan Nostradamus thanks to her supposed powers of clairvoyance. The blind seer posthumously shot to fame in the year 2000 after the sinking of the Russian submarine Kursk – an event many conspiracy theorists claim Baba Vanga predicted before her death. During her life, Baba Vanga was also believed by many to have the power to communicate with the dead.
Baba Vanga’s followers claim she predicted the 9/11 World Trade Center attack, the cataclysmic 2004 tsunami in Thailand and the 2008 election of President Barack Obama.
On top of her supposed powers of foresight, Baba Vanga’s supporters believe the blind woman who lived in the village of Rupite, Bulgaria, had the power to communicate with the dead.
So what exactly did Baba Vanga have to say about the year 2020 before her death in 1996?
Below are Baba Vanga’s most terrifying predictions with additional commentary from British psychic and medium Craig Hamilton-Parker from Psychics.co.uk.
Did Baba Vanga predict an attempt on Vladimir Putin’s life in 2020?
The medium’s believers are convinced Baba Vanga foresaw an assassination attempt on the life of Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Did Baba Vanga predict a cataclysmic tsunami for 2020?
Based on Baba Vanga’s prophecies of the future, a powerful tsunami could strike Asia 16 years after the tragedy of the 2004 tsunami.
The 2004 cataclysm killed more than 220,000 people in SouthEast Asia.
If the blind mystic is proven correct next year, another disastrous wave will sweep through parts of Pakistan, Japan, China, Indonesia.
According to Mr Hamilton-Parker, 2020 will see many environmental disasters unfold all across the world.
He said: “2020 will see many earthquakes. In particular, Japan and India will see major quakes that may cause disruption to the Summer Olympics.
“The USA will also experience earthquakes. Serious volcanic activity on a small island – I cannot identify where. Urgent evacuation.”
What has Baba Vanga correctly predicted?
Despite being known as the Balkan Nostradamus, Baba Vanga is only said to have had a success rate of about 85 percent.
The Bulgarian mystic is credited with correctly predicting the sinking of the Russian nuclear submarine Kursk in 1980.
Baba Vanga’s followers also claim the woman predicted the rise of ISIS in the Middle East and Barack Obama’s election as US President.
Baba Vanga did, however, incorrectly claim the first African American President of the US will also be the last.
Author Judith Joyce explained some of Baba Vanaga’s most popular predictions in her book The Weiser Field Guide to the Paranormal: Abductions, Apparitions, ESP, Synchronicity, and More Unexplained Phenomena from Other Realms.
She wrote: “During World War II, crowds flocked to her, hoping that she could reveal clairvoyantly how loved ones in the armed forces were fairing or where bodies could be found.
“On April 8, 1942, Bulgarian King Boris II came to consult her.
“Later, during the Communist era, members of the ruling elite sought her advice.
“It was rumoured that Soviet leader Leonid Brezhnev consulted her at least once.”
Will any of Baba Vanga’s predictions come true?
According to website Skeptics.com, Baba Vanga’s prophecies and predictions are pure fiction and nothing more.
The website wrote: “Vanga was illiterate or semi-literate, and she apparently did not write any books herself, with staff members financed by the Bulgarian government capturing what she allegedly said.
Those of Vanga’s predictions quoted seem to all be apocalyptic visions of the future of the world – particularly Europe – and even Mars, where a war will break out in 3005 and change the trajectory of the planet.
“On a more positive note, she predicted that in 2028 mankind will fly to Venus to search for new sources of energy – she must not have seen the toxic and corrosive atmosphere of the planet – and that by 2130 civilisations will live underwater with the help of aliens”
