Luckily, the universe leaves us with obvious clues of a higher power at work with a long list of unbelievable coincidences that prove we're not in control here. With that said, check out some of the craziest coincidences in recorded history that will have you questioning our entire existence right now.
Enzo Ferrari Reincarnated?
If you're not sure who Enzo Ferrari is, his last name should at least ring a bell as he's responsible for one of the finest, luxury sports automobile companies in the entire world. Unfortunately, the mastermind passed away in 1988 but, about a month later, pro-footballer, Mesut Özil was born and from the looks of their portraits side-by-side, these two are either closely related or Özil is a reincarnated Enzo Ferrari in the flesh.
Titanic & Futility

There's also a huge conspiracy behind this, that we'll leave you guys up to research, it's one of our favorites.
George Handel & Jimi Hendrix Neighbors?
It isn't hard to believe that two musical geniuses would be living in the same city or town but there might be an occurrence like any the coincidence of George Handel and Jimi Hendrix being neighbors...

Zubaida Tharwat & Jennifer Lawrence
Zubaida Tharwat was known to have the most beautiful eyes in Egyptian cinema during her time as an actress in the African nation who unfortunately recently passed away in 2016.

The British claim that this was not deliberately done on purpose whatsoever.

A rear prior to the event of Erskine's death, his brother, who was also 17 at the time was killed while riding the same moped by the same taxi driver and passenger he was carrying. Creepy.

Unable to find the book anywhere he was on the verge of giving up when he unexpectedly found a copy while riding public transportation.

Deus Ex & The Twin Towers
A video game by the name of Deus Ex was released in the year 2000 and the skybox/scenic artist had 'forgotten' to include the then World Trade Center into the New York depiction. In the game, the discrepancy was explained that the Twin Towers not being depicted was due to a terrorist attack. A year later... 9/11/2001 occurred.
