John Titor: Real or a Hoax?
    #6167584 - 10/14/06 01:36 AM (14 years, 6 months ago)

Very interesting stuff.

I still haven't decided how I feel overall about this.

there was a guy I met in a chat room whose handle was "Sen", and over the course of weeks of interaction, and many hours of me in disbelief over his claims of being an alien, we finally had a very in depth conversation and what the guy ended up talking about for hours on end was simply amazing.

I came to doubt my doubt.... not that I 100% believed him, but the situation was plausible after discussions with him.

I constantly called bullshit on him until this point where the only other explanation was that he had a very good science fiction book he had yet to publish. He was very knowledgable about quantum mechanics, biophysiology, and never once paused when I asked him about what his planet looked like, or the technology, he always instantly responded, almost uncanny speed about machines and the implementation of nanotechnology in his (supposed) society.

anther dynamic to him was that he didnt call it nanotechnology, he had different words for everything, and always had a very sterile yet inquisitive approach to all topics. The funny thing was that this was in a religion room, not a science or technology room. He was always there to talk, not once could I log into that room and he would not be there or be idle. any hour of the day.

I wish I would have logged our conversations, because I would have been able to write the greatest science fiction series ever.

no, he left after about 4 weeks of me knowing he was around.

He announced it, and said that he wouldn't be returning, and i haven't seen him since, but that would be easy to do by just deleting an account or never using it.

The photos of the inside of his 'time machine' look like a load of cock.

I suspect the John Titor thing was a hoax, but cannot be certain. The part that makes me suspect hoax is the reason he came back in time... for an old computer... and the fact that he cannot return to his timeline, but only to a close aproximation of his timeline.

Think about this for a minute... why would you send somebody on a mission to fetch something needed to solve a problem when you know that the person has no way of returning? Sure, he may fix a close timeline, but that doesn't do us any good in our timeline. Wouldn't it be a better use of resources to actually solve the problem for our own timeline rather than expend resources to fix another timeline that is close to our own?

It kinds of seems like a waste of your time to have even figured that out to be honest. No offense.

Doesn't matter, we will find out in a few years.

"Along with the prediction of World War III, another notable prediction is that of a Civil war in America, which was predicted to begin in 2004, around the time of the presidential election, and would escalate until 2008, which, according to Titor, "[is] a general date by which time everyone will realize the world they thought they were living in was over."

Did anything like this happen in America in 2004?

> It kinds of seems like a waste of your time to have even figured that out to be honest.

I don't own a television, so rather than wasting hours of my day letting other people tell me how to think, I waste hours of my day thinking about stuff that I find interesting. I enjoy solving problems, and this was a beauty of a problem to try and solve. The practice of logic and problem solving skills is never a waste of time.

> Did anything like this happen in America in 2004?

It doesn't matter. Titor claimed to be from a different timeline than us, so anything that he predicted that doesn't happen is covered...
