Ok Nostradamus is obviously someone who most people would agree could predict and is famous for predicting the future.

Now if he predicted 500 hundred years ago that 9/11 would happen and that it was Bin Laden, would that be proof enough that the goverment wasnt involved?

Not sure how to break this to you, but if you're referring to the supposed Nostradamus prediction of 9/11 that was popularly circulated soon thereafter, it's a load of crap.
Most of the stuff on the internet that seems fishy can be checked out on snopes.com, and here's this one:
http://www.snopes.com/rumors/nostradamus.asp

a lot of ppl, eager to make sense of the catastrophe, gullibly lapped this up back then, incl some of my co-workers, who would not listen to reason after I showed them otherwise. These ppl also believe the Weekly World News etc (bat-faced boy, Elvis seen working at a Michigan WalMart, JFK met with aliens).
Abeer Qassim Hamza al-Janabi: Abeer means "fragrance of flowers." She was 14 years old when she was stalked, gang raped, doused with kerosene and burned alive by US troops outside of Baghdad, March 12, 2006. http://www.alternet.org/waroniraq/40481/
Asked why a nuclear power such as North Korea was being treated differently from Iraq, where hardly any weapons of mass destruction had been found, deputy defence secretary Wolfowitz said (June 2003), "Let's look at it simply. The most important difference between North Korea and Iraq is that economically, we just had no choice in Iraq. The country swims on a sea of oil."
"...the idea of going into Baghdad, for example, or trying to topple the (Hussein)regime wasn't anything I was enthusiastic about. I felt there was a real danger here that you would get bogged down in a long drawn-out conflict, that this was a dangerous, difficult part of the world. I think if we had done that we would have been bogged down there for a very long period of time with the real possibility we might not have succeeded." Sec. of Defense Dick Cheney, 1991
Bush planned Iraqi invasion before 9/11: Treas Secretary Paul O'Neill writes in his book that a National Security Council meeting "..was all about finding a way to (invade Iraq). That was the tone of it. The president kept saying 'Go find me a way to do this'". http://www.cnn.com/2004/ALLPOLITICS/01/10/oneill.bush/

Nostradamus has never predicted anything, until after the fact. His predictions are so vague and malleable that they can be used to 'predict' just about anything.... so long as it has already happened.

Put it this way. He made thousands of predictions. And maybe only a few were close to being right. And just those few get attention.
A man is what he thinks about all day.
