The Incredibly Strange Book That Predicted Titanic’s Sinking 14 Years Before It Actually Happened

It may sound weird (well, that’s why we made an article for it) but Titanic’s sinking was predicted before it actually happened on the night of April 14, 1912 in the North Atlantic Ocean.

In 1898, 14 years prior to Titanic’s sinking, author Morgan Robertson published a book called Futility, or the Wreck of the Titan. The book was, wait for it… about a fictional ship called Titan, the largest ship ever built, which sank after hitting an iceberg in the Atlantic Ocean on a cold April night at around midnight! The events in the book are incredibly similar to the real events and the sinking of the iconic Titanic (even the name is almost the same).

After Titanic’s sinking, Morgan Robertson republished Futility with some changes in an effort to cash in on the Titanic disaster. You can get the book from Amazon:
