Bulgaria: Scientist Debunks Bulgarian Astrologer's 'Earthquake Prediction' Bulgarian geophysicist Prof. Nikolay Miloshev. File photo by BGNES

A Bulgarian astrologer going by the name of “Astra Luna” has controversially claimed that “a terrifying earthquake” will occur next year near the Bulgarian town of Kresna.

The astrologer has told Nova TV that the earthquake “would happen in the summer of 2014” and would “cause a great deal of devastation and suffering.”

However, prominent Bulgarian geophysicist Prof. Nikolay Miloshev has reminded that earthquakes cannot be predicted.

“If earthquakes could be predicted, the Fukushima disaster would not have happened,” he told Nova TV.

“Some 100 small earthquakes occur each year in the region of Kresna. People there are used to both the slight shakes and the apocalyptic predictions,” the scientist noted.

In 2009, Bulgarian atrologer Emil Leshtanski stirred outrage by wrongly predicting a devastating earthquake in the region of the Bulgarian city of Haskovo. The “prediction” drew many people out of their houses, forced them to spend the night on the street, and brought record-high profits to local insurance companies.

Let's hope that Prof. Miloshev is not about to go down in history as a Bulgarian Michael Fish.... ;)
