Enzo Ferrari who died in 1988 was the founder of the Ferrari company. A month after his death, a football player Mesut Özil came into this world. Don't they look amazingly similar? I bet you would call them twins.

Is this another evidence of time travel?

Morgan Robertson, a fantasy writer, wrote the novella Futility in 1898, which was 14 years before the Titanic sank. The novella told the story of a ship, named The Titan, and was also sunk. But this uncanny coincidence is not only limited to their names, rather both The Titan and The Titanic were said to be unsinkable, lacked a suitable number of lifeboats, had similar technical characteristics, and most shockingly, both collided with the iceberg in the North Atlantic.

In 1895, two cars in the state of Ohio collided. This accident was peculiar because in that period of time only these two cars were there in all of Ohio, as automobile production had just begun. Also, the official documentation of automobile accidents was not started then, hence the records of this accident could not exist.

In the First World War, the first and the last soldiers who were killed are still together. Isn't it shocking? It is because their graves are located 6 meters away with their headstones facing each other. This is a coincidence and the placement of their graves was not done deliberately.

Edgar Allan Poe wrote a book named "The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket", in which he told the story of 4 sailors whose ship was sinking but they somehow survived, and they also ate a ship-boy forcefully called Richard Parker. According to Poe, this book was based on a real-life event but it was not true.

46 years after Poe's startling book, the same event actually happened. A real boat sank and the survivors told the story about how they forcefully ate a ship-boy called Richard Parker.

After this event, people spread the rumours about the famous American writer that he owned a time machine.

Behind the wheel was the same driver, and he was carrying the same passenger.
