The Simpsons, the television show is undoubtedly the most famous and widely watched show around the world.

And it's just not the small predictions that take place, but the big, life-changing, easily noticeable, and which are the hot topics in the news all around the world.
The show started it's series in 1987 by creator Matt Groening. Since then Bart, Marge, Bart, Lisa, and Maggie has been the world's favourite family, there have been rumours that the Simpsons are able to predict the future much in advance, and so far the world events and their outcomes have been true. Conspiracy theorists believe that the creators have the first-hand info on all the global plots. But we’re not sure how, since these events are quite unpredictable. They cannot be written down somewhere and then be implemented when the time comes. So, while we wait for someone to figure that out, we've listed some of the many incidents that The Simpsons have predicted.

Syrian opposition flag
In the episode aired in 2001,Bart and his friends, Nelson, Ralph, and Milhouse, start an all boy band, Party Posse. They make a hit single called Dropped da Bomb. In their music video, they seem to drop a bomb in an unidentified Arab nation. Strangely the Syrian opposition flag is clearly seen. It's to be noted that when the episode was released there was no Syrian opposition taking place.
The ebola crisis
In an episode aired in 1997, Marge is making an attempt to cheer up a sick Bart, who’s lying on his bed. She asks him if would like to read the book Curious George and the Ebola virus. Since he’s too sick to be interested, Marge asks to do some colouring. He replies by saying he’s already done with it and points to a calamitous painting depicting a pile of lifeless bodies. Then in December 2013, there was a plague of Ebola which began in Guinea and then spread like wildfire to Liberia and Sierra Leone. There was a record of 28,657 cases reported and more than 11000 deaths since then.

We don't even know what to say about this incident. It's impossible to predict something like this in the future. In an episode aired in 1997, The City of New York vs. Homer Simpson, Lisa shows a magazine titled New York. The theory is that the cover design portrays the 9/11 attacks, that took place 4 years later. The number 9 from the price, and number 11 from what seems to be the twin towers.
In an episode aired in November 2008, Simpsons Treehouse of Horror XIX Episode, “How to Get Ahead in Dead-Vertising” there’s a small clip that shows Homer being asked to kill Prince, the music artist. Homer agrees to do it once he was paid, and kills Prince during one of his concerts. Honestly, this is kind of getting creepy.

It also showed that he would wreck the country. In the episode Bart to the future, there was a glimpse of the future, in which Lisa, who is much older, is in the Oval Office saying “As you know, we’ve inherited quite a budget crunch from President Trump”. So far they’ve predicted most of the occurrences accurately, could this be the same as well?
