Name the Psychic Predictions Betsey Lewis got wrong?

I need to know if this woman is a fake. In order to do that, I need examples of failed predictions as proof of her psychic predictions being nothing more than a con.

    "He was fake. All his **** is In a mix of languages so the quatrains are so vague.  "

    As usual, the critics base their opinions on ignorance.  Nostradamus was a Jewish physician living in France pretending to be French.  He wrote vaguely because predictions could be fatal if they were not well received, or misunderstood by the wrong people. Using vague language was a good way to weasel word your way out of trouble with authorities.  Nostradamus was not the only person to do this.

    Secondly, he was not a psychic as we understand that word.  He was a physician and as such, in those days, he was very familiar with astrology.  If he used anything to make predictions, he used astrology.  However the tables of positions of the planets didn't reach into the 20th century, and there is no strong astrological evidence to support the idea that astrology was his tool for prediction.  It is likely (to a point), but not a slam dunk.

    There are tons of valid criticisms of Nostradamus.  Some of the quatrains make almost no sense at all. Others are credited with long range accuracy by his adherents, but they are a stretch.  Others are just pure fiction.  Nostradamus is credited with quatrains that he never wrote.  Looked at objectively, he is more of a puzzle than a seer. Some of his actions are understandable given the prejudices of his day.  He is such a polarizing figure that no one makes anything like an objective analysis of his writings.

    Anyone who claims to be psychic and asks for money is a fraud.  Including the wonderful Nostradamus.  He was fake. All his **** is In a mix of languages so the quatrains are so vague.  He also made a shitload of Predictions so the probability of them coming to pass is plenty. 

    No psychics are not real.

    Who is Betsey Lewis?  OK I looked her up. She has a list of predictions that supposedly were made in April 2020 and some of the dates have passed.  I have no way of knowing if this list has been altered or not since that time.  So go and check the accuracy for yourself. She is apparently going into some kind of semi-retirement and she is pushing her new book.

    In your opinion, when can someone claim psychic abilities? Know of any that submitted to extensive testing and passed? Or is say so good enough?

    It seems clear that psychics can be explained in one of three ways: (1) they truly are psychic; (2) they are frauds, taking advantage of people's gullibility and weaknesses; or (3) they're deluded and self-deceived. Of the three options, the least probable is option number one.

    To believe in the ability of a person to channel spirits, to "hear" or "feel" the voices or presence of the dead, to "see" the past, the future, or what is presently in another's mind, or to make contact with a realm of reality that transcends natural laws is to believe in something highly improbable. Psychics don't rely on psychics to warn them of impending disasters. Psychics don't predict their own deaths or diseases. They go to the dentist like the rest of us. They're as surprised and disturbed as the rest of us when they have to call a plumber or an electrician to fix some defect at home. Their planes are delayed without their being able to anticipate the delays. If they want to know something about Abraham Lincoln, they go to the library; they don't try to talk to Abe's spirit. In short, psychics live by the known laws of nature except when they are playing the psychic game with people. Psychics aren't overly worried about other psychics reading their minds and revealing their innermost secrets to the world. No casino has ever banned psychics from the gaming room because there is no need.
