The Latin word vaticinĭum came to our language as prophecy . It's about a augury , a feeling , a forecast or one prophecy . For example: "According to the journalist's prediction, the official candidate will prevail in the ballot", “The predictions of economists for the second semester are not very optimistic”, “My prediction was fulfilled! Uncle Hector was late again ”.
The predictions can be comments made without too much analysis neither logical sustenance . In this case, these are pronounced predictions in an informal context: "My prediction is that I'm going to beat you three to zero: I'm unbeatable playing the PlayStation", "I'm going to prepare a delicious dinner and show you that your prediction about my culinary skills was wrong", "Enough of predictions: hopefully the draw begins and there we will know who will be the winner".
Occasionally, predictions are associated with mystical or supernatural powers . It is known as “Nostradamus Vaticinios” , in this sense, to a series of watercolors created by the seer Nostradamus (1503 -1566 ), in which there are those who believe that the author anticipates facts futures .
In the same way, we cannot ignore that they have also given much prominence in our current society to what are considered to be predictions carried out by members of the Mayan civilization. Specifically, among the most significant are the following:
-On December 21, 2012, the world of materialism and hatred would end.
-The temperature of the planet will change and will bring about important modifications at a climatic and geological level
-The solar eclipse of August 11, 1999 would cause society to change to synchronize with the world, with the universe.
-There will be a remarkable melting of what ice is at the poles.
-It indicates that there will be an important risk for all humanity, since a comet will approach Earth.
-He will have a new harmony among human beings.
For many, the predictions of the Maya are pure speculation because many of those who indicated have not come true. However, for others they are very accurate, hence they give value to those who perform for 2017 and have been published by scholars who are responsible for interpreting their legacy:
- Important changes will take place at the political level throughout the world and especially in Latin America.

"Vaticinia of Summis Pontificibus" On the other hand, they are texts written in Latin that refer to the elections of the popes of the church catholic .
They can also be indicated as predictions to the forecasts that are carried out with scientific or rational criteria . When a meteorologist, after analyzing information provided by satellites and other instruments, anticipates how the weather will be in the next few days, it could be said that it offers a prediction. Although these forecasts may fail, they are developed according to systematized studies and proven knowledge.
