|13 unbelievable Coincidences That Leave Us with Many Questions About The World by HzRF(m): 10:25am On Nov 10, 2017|
Almost Like Reincarnation
Enzo Ferrari, who founded the Ferrari company, died in 1988. About a month later, the footballer Mesut Özil was born. Looking at their portraits, you could be forgiven for thinking they’re twin brothers. Is this a case of reincarnation?
Is this Another Evidence Of time Travel?
Jennifer Lawrence is a spitting image of a silver age Egyptian actress Zubaida Tharwat.
A premonition Of the Titanic
In 1898, 14 years before the sinking of the Titanic, fantasy writer Morgan Robertson wrote the novella Futility, which told the story of a ship that was sunk — and which bore the name The Titan. But it wasn’t just the name where we can see an eerie coincidence. Both the fictional and real ship were described as unsinkable, had similar technical characteristics, lacked a suitable number of lifeboats, and collided with icebergs in the North Atlantic.
After the sinking of the Titanic, the book was republished with the title Futility, or The Sinking of the Titan.
Neighbors Living In different Centuries
The famous composer George Handel was a neighbor of famous guitarist Jimi Hendrix — admittedly, they were separated by two centuries. Handel lived in London at 25 Brook Street, whilst Hendrix lived for a time at 23 Brook Street. They were both incredible musicians who had a major influence on the development of music in their respective eras.
The Tragedy On the Hoover Dam
One of the first people who lost their life during the construction of the Hoover Dam was George Tierney, who died on December 20, 1922, when carrying out preparatory work. The last person to die during construction was Patrick Tierney — George’s son. He also died on December 20.
The Cars That Found Each Other
In 1895, in the state of Ohio, two cars collided. The peculiarity of this particular accident is to be found in the fact that during this period, automobile production was only just beginning to take off, and there were only these two cars in all of Ohio. Unfortunately, at that time automobile accidents still weren’t documented, and so the official records of this case haven’t survived.
Coincidences In the Biographies Of Lincoln And Kennedy
A multitude of strange coincidences exist in the biographies of two American presidents: Abraham Lincoln and John Kennedy. Here are just a few of them:
They were both killed by a gunshot wound to the back of the head, on a Friday, before a celebration (Lincoln was killed just before Easter; Kennedy on the eve of Thanksgiving). Each was accompanied by his wife and another couple.
Both had four children.
Both had a friend called Billy Graham.
Kennedy had a secretary called Mrs. Lincoln. President Lincoln had a secretary called John.
Their successors in both cases were vice presidents called Johnson, who were both southerners and Democrats.
The First And Last Soldiers
The graves of the first and last British soldiers killed in the First World War are located 6 meters from each other, and their headstones face each other. This arrangement was not in any way deliberate.
Rumors Of Edgar Allan Poe’s Time Machine
In the book The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket, written by Edgar Allan Poe, we learn the story of four sailors who survived the sinking of their ship and were forced to eat a shipboy called Richard Parker. Po claimed that this story was based on real-life events, but this wasn’t actually the case.
46 years after the book was written, an actual boat did sink, and the members of the crew who were saved recounted how they had eaten a shipboy called...Richard Parker. This led to rumors that the famous American writer had owned a time machine.
