Depending on how you view the world we could call this article Did These Psychic Predictions COME TRUE?” or Some Remarkable Coincidences, but regardless if you think people can glimpse into the future or if there’s just some freaky guessing going on we’re positive you’re going to be freaked out about these predictions (or lucky guesses).
Jeanne Dixon Predicts the JFK Assassination
Thanks to her newspaper columns, books, and many media appearances Jeanne Dixon was one of the best known astrologers and psychics in America until her death in 1997. Right before John F. Kennedy was elected in 1960 she wrote that the winner of the elections would “Be assassinated or die in office though not necessarily in his first term.”
But before you get too excited about proof of the supernatural, she also gave name to the “Dixon Effect” a term used by physics that explains the psychological phenomenon where we only remember when a psychics is right, that’s what sticks out in our memories, not the many times they’re wrong. As a famous pro, Dixon pumped out prediction-after-prediction, week after week, but we forget the many misses. She also saw WWIII starting in 1958, chose the wrong candidate to win in countless elections, and that the Russians would reach the moon before the USA. When your job is pumping out predictions, odds are you’ll guess right every once and a while.
Tana Hoy Predicts the Oklahoma Bombing
One of the worst domestic terrorist bombings in US history was 1995’s bombing of Federal buildings in Oklahoma. But did a professional psychic named Tana Hoy foresee the tragedy four months before it happened. That’s what Hoy claims, however, what he actually said in a radio interview is that there would be a terrorist attack in the US that year.
Freaky that the bombings happened a few months later BUT Hoy’s prediction was pretty vague. And he went on to make a bunch of losing predictions following Oklahoma involving attacks that never happened. And again, as a professional psychic, he’s got to pump out his prophecies and thanks to the Dixon effect only the hits are remembered.
Lincoln Sees His Death
Three days before his assignation Abraham Lincoln told his friend Ward Hill Lamon about a nightmare Lincoln had where he visited the White House for his own wake where one of the mourners told him that president was killed by assassin. Straight up eery right? We want to balance that out with a little skepticism, but it’s just a freaky story. If it makes you feel better, lots of people wanted Lincoln dead so that must have sunk into his subconscious so maybe that’s the source of the dream right there. Also, Lamon didn’t tell the story till years later so perhaps he built it up in his mind to be an even more dramatic and prophetic dream.
Nostradamus Predicts 9/11
The famous French psychic of the 1500s is reputed to have predicted everything from WWII to the death of Princess Di in his prophetic poetry. But check out this stanza, does it predict 9/11 almost 500 years before it happened?
“On the 11th day of the 9 month, two metal birds will crash into two tall statues in the new city, and the world will end soon after.”
Oh s$%t and the end of the world! This would have us crapping our pants….if Nostradamus had actually written it! Though he did write 100’s of pages of vague poetry this stanza isn’t in his work. It’s a modern forgery circulating around the ‘net. So, don’t lock yourself in your homemade basement bunker on account of this “prediction”.
Back to the Future Predicts the Rise of Trump
In 1989’s Back to the Future 2 time travel shenanigans leave the crass, sexist, bully Biff Tannen in charge as a rich ruler. A self-obsessed and vain casino owner who slaps his name on everything, Biff is an insecure blowhard with terrible fake yellow hair who seems terribly familiar. And yes, the creators of the movie admit they based him off of Donald Trump. But what was a gag in the 1980s is our terrifying reality now…did Back to the Future predict our present? We’ll let you be the judge.
