Baba Vanga Predictions For 2018 That Still Haven't Happened

This time last year the blind Bulgarian mystic Baba Vanga was full of predictions about what 2018 had in store for us, and as the year draws to a close it's probably best to evaluate just how accurate she was.

Before she died in 1996, aged 85, she left predictions going all the way to the 51st century when she said the universe will end.

According to the dear old 'Nostradamus from the Balkans', we could look forward to two world-changing events in 2018 - one was China taking over the US as the world's next 'super power' and the discovery of a 'new form of energy' on the planet Venus. Was she right? Well, in short, no.

Giving her some credit, people believe she correctly foresaw 9/11, the rise of ISIS and the Boxing Day tsunami - and looking back, these occurrences do give a good reason to at least listen to her.

So far it doesn't seem as if China has taken over the US as the next biggest super power - a study back in September this year actually said the growth of the US economy kept it just the smallest bit ahead of China.

It is still widely believed that in time China will rise high - alongside India - but, for now the US seems to be doing alright. know. Him.

At the moment, all eyes are still set on Britain and Brexit and what kind of effect it will have on the world economy.

How about a discovery of a 'new form of energy' from Venus? Well, again this didn't happen. In fact, NASA (along with other space programmes) hasn't mentioned this in a while. Back in 2014, it was thought Venus could be a great source for harnessing solar energy - 40 per cent more than here on Earth.

But, as far as space exploration goes 2018 has been pretty epic.

Recently NASA safely plonked the InSight lander on the red planet and it's even had time to take a selfie since putting its first wheel on the surface of Mars.

Even with all the events of 2018 it doesn't seem like Vanga was quite on the money as far as 2018 goes. Although there is another week to go.

But she didn't stop with 2018 - other events Vanga has warned us about in the future include the end of world hunger by 2028, ice caps melting by 2045, Mars colonies gaining nukes by 2256 and Earth becoming uninhabitable from 2341.

Suddenly, Brexit is sounding a lot easier to face.
