Who is Mabus?

 Who is Mabus?

Tonight's guest, Nostradamus scholar John Hogue, has speculated on the identity of Mabus, the so-called third Antichrist that Nostradamus named in his quatrains. Here is one quatrain where Mabus is mentioned:

Mabus will soon die, then will come,
A horrible undoing of people and animals,
At once one will see vengeance,
One-hundred powers, thirst, famine, when the comet will pass
-Century 2, Quatrain 62

Hogue told After Dark that Nostradamus' apocalyptic visions could be his way of describing the after effects of a nuclear winter or the results of chemical or biological weapons.

Current speculation as to who Mabus is, has focused on mainly Osama bin Laden and Saddam Hussein. Hogue said that Nostradamus often couched the use of proper names in anagrams and word games. "Usama," Hogue says is the correct phonetic pronunciation of Osama and what Nostradamus may have done was dropped the redundant "a" and inserted a "b" which would then contain all the letters of Mabus. Similarly the name Saddam spelled backwards with the "d" reversed into ''b" yields another Mabus.
