He predicted WWII, the deaths of U.S. presidents, and the turmoil of the 1960s. He prophesied that Israel would become a state 15 years before the event and foretold the Great Depression. Many of his visions seemed to pass unfulfilled, but are now being proven accurate.
His name is Edgar Cayce, and he is sometimes called the other Nostradamus. Throughout the 1930s and '40s, Cayce was a well-known figure, renowned for his "healing abilities" as well as his prophecies. DECODING THE PAST examines the transcriptions of Cayce's readings to see which of his predictions have come true, which remain unfulfilled, and which may yet be realized.
Filled with expert interviews, the recollections of those who saw Cayce work, and archival photos and footage, THE OTHER NOSTRADAMUS is a compelling look at a unique American figure.
