Over the years, I have heard about and come across people who knew when they were going to die.
Don’t be surprised and no, I am not talking about people who were terminally ill and knew they had little time left.
This is purely about healthy people who just predicted their deaths.
Many accounts of people (mostly celebrities) who knew when they were going to die, like xxxtentacion.
This young rap hip hop superstar talked about how if he dies or become a sacrifice, he wants to make sure that his life made at least five million kids happy. He died a few days after this.
Mark Twain who was born at a time when Halley’s comet was passing the Earth and he made this statement
I came in with Halley’s Comet in 1835. It is coming again next year, and I expect to go out with it. It will be the greatest disappointment of my life if I don’t go out with Halley’s Comet.
And he died on the return of Halley’s comet.
My biggest issues with all this is that, do they really know they were going to die?
Did they know it was going to be that day? Or was it all a big coincidence?
