    Now, this guy might have been a hoax, but if he really did post in 2000 as many say he did, then his predictions, fraud or not, seem to be pretty prophetic. If he is (was) real, then all hell is about to break loose in this country.

    It is interesting reading whether you believe it or not. I heard somebody talking about this guy on Coast to Coast AM with George Noorey (the old host, Art Bell retired and the show is known for some crzy topics!).

    Was he a brilliant fraud, or an ordinary soldier from 2036?

    Interesting to say the least. I wonder who the 'debunkers' will be.

    Interesting stuff. I like Noorey, but don't get a chance to listen very often.

    I've never heard of John Titor until today, I have seen similar predictions about the future with regard to society, war and many other things he mentioned. What do you think, US civil war?

    I think this might be the same guy I heard on the radio back in '99. I was riding to work with a friend of mine and he liked to listen to Art Bell on the ride home. I don't remember the guys name or much of what he said, but he claimed to be from the future and I remember something about a civil war. This being at the height of the Y2K scare, Bell asked him if there were any major problems that stemmed from computer malfunctions or anything like that. Apparently it was the first time anyone had thought to ask about it because he sounded like he almost swallowed his tongue trying to snap up with an answer. After a pause, he said something along the lines of, "Yes, that was the...uh...Great Computer...uh...Failure of the 21st Century." He went on to claim that Y2K would cause major problems, causing riots in some areas, but it would all smooth over after about two years. As I recall, the worst thing that happened due to Y2K was some people in West Texas getting electric bills that showed they were 100 years overdue.

    The one thing that makes me doubt the story (other than normal skepticism about things 'unknow') is the fact that he says the "countryside" starts fighting the "cities" because our civil rights are taken away in the name of security. I see a 'civil war' being possible for such reasons, but I would generally expect that the cities, being more liberal, would be the ones that would be upset about civil rights being taken away in the name of security (does that make sense?).

    Other than that, it is a FACT that has been proven that he started posting in 2000. Based on that alone, it gives me pause, seeing that that (civil rights / security) is a topic that is being hotly debated today due to events that took place AFTER he STOPPED posting. Either way, the guy saw SOMETHING coming somehow.

    I do believe that the USA is closer to possible civil war now more than anytime since , well, the civil war.

    Yeah, I saw he started posting on the web in November of 2000, but he might have been sround before then. The radio thing was around November 1999. Could still be him, but it's not out of the question that there were two time travelers out there about the same time.

    Yes it does make sense, plus I think there would be tensions now, I don't think this is something that would develop overnight, and 2005 is very close. I have to admit, when he said society will value security more than freedom (or something along those lines) that kinda gave me a chill.

    There are many things that make me doubt his story too, but most of what he had to say was interesting, and fairly accurate - as far as where things COULD lead.

    I did a little more reading and I guess he does say somewhere that he went back to 1975 and "informed" his grandfather of the y2K bug.

    Anyway, it is just fun to read.

    I hate to say it, but unlike said1, I do believe that things could "change overnight" that would lead to a civil war. His contention was that the war started around the 2004 elections. I guess we will know soon enough. However, he also says that until about 2008, many will only view the "fighting" as domestic terrorists and that the events will be more like Waco than anything else.

    Makes ya wonder, who will be elected president in 2004? He states that the President is more of just a "leader" which makes you wonder if he is saying that, once again, the count is so close, that the "courts" make the final decision. he states that the President elected in 2008 is only concerned about protecting his/her (I found it interesting that in 2008, he says his/her but about 2004, he clearly stated the president would be a man - makes you wonder about Hillary in 2008....) power base.
