Linda and Terry Jamison are American identical twins, professionally known as The Psychic Twins.[1] They are best known for the prediction they made in 1999 on the Art Bell radio show. The Twins said "that there would be terrorist attacks on ...federal buildings and ... the World Trade Center ...in 2002."[2]

World Trade Center and Federal Buildings terrorist attack prediction in 1999[edit]

While being interviewed on the Art Bell radio show (Coast to Coast A.M.) on November 2, 1999, The Psychic Twins predicted that there would be a terrorist attack on federal buildings and the World Trade Center in 2001. The actual quote is, "We are seeing terrorist attacks on federal government – excuse me, federal buildings. Particularly South Carolina or Georgia, by July 2002.[3] And also the New York Trade Center – the World Trade Center in 2002, with something, with a terrorist attack."[4] However, the predicted date was incorrect as the terrorist attacks actually occurred on September 11, 2001. According to an article in Woman's Own magazine, and a documentary on A&E, they also predicted that John F. Kennedy Jr. would die by plane.[4] It was also predicted from the Psychic Twins that Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony would not stay together as a couple on La Fusion TV in 2009.[5]

Al-Qaeda terror threat predictions in Europe[edit]

January 2010, The Psychic Twins predicted "Al-Qaeda terror threats in France, Germany and London, England in fall of 2010." This prediction was made in the After Dark magazine, the official magazine for Coast to Coast AM.[6] In the news on September 29, 2010 it was announced "Al-Qaeda plot to attack European cities uncovered". Yahoo News, September 29, 2010[7] It went on to say "Intelligence agencies have uncovered an Al-Qaeda plot to launch attacks in Britain, France and Germany by Pakistan-based extremists."

Biography[edit]

Linda and Terry Jamison grew up in the small town of West Chester, Pennsylvania, attending East Bradford Elementary School, and later Henderson High School. Their parents, Jane Bethel Gray and Philip Jamison, were writers and painters.[15] According to a 2006 documentary on A&E, Philip is a watercolor artist of worldwide renown.[16][17] The Jamison Twins also have an older brother Philip Duane Jamison III, nickname "Flip", who has not displayed any psychic abilities.

Education and career[edit]

The Jamison Twins both attended the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (PAFA)[18] for one year in Philadelphia, Pa. after graduating high school. They both went on to different universities. Terry attended Penn State University for one year, and Linda attended the University of Delaware, both then transferred to Temple University's Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia, Pa. where they obtained fine arts degrees. They later worked as performance artists.

Terry Jamison is a painter and collaborated in the 1980s with artists Frank Shifreen and Mark Oberg to exhibit paintings and sculptures of New York's emerging talents. The exhibition was called The Gowanus Canal Monumental Show.[19] The twins had their own performing arts company, Pop Theatrics, which would perform music, comedy, dance, and acrobatics in New York and Washington, D.C., as well as the White House for the Reagans.

The twins endured different illnesses for many years. They had stated "they went through many treatments and doctors to find relief". After many attempts to find treatment for their illnesses the Jamison Twins had begun to practice Nichiren Daishonin Buddhism in the late 1980s. This gave them a new sense of purpose to teach, inspire, and motivate others.[23] The Jamison Twins had a motto "Never give up—no matter what!"[24]

In the year of 1990 they moved to Los Angeles, California[25] with no money and had taken odd jobs to make ends meet.[26] They started to perform psychic readings and have since counselled people in every walk of life, teaching them how to achieve physical, emotional and spiritual growth.

Alternative views[edit]

Critic Leon Jaroff has pointed out that the Jamison twins are frequently incorrect in their predictions.[57] For example, in December 2003, they incorrectly predicted that Saddam Hussein would be killed by U.S troops in early 2004 (he was actually executed after a trial in 2006), and that Pope John Paul II would die in June 2004 (he actually died in April 2005).
