Looks like John Titor was a liar

Well it doesn't seem like there will be a civil war started because of the election. I guess he was just a fine storyteller.

I don't mean to show off my SUPREME ignorance, but huh?

Who's John Titor, and what's the story? What impending civil war?

He said it would start slowly in 2005 in part because a 20004 election like 2000.

But yes- he also said he was a time traveler

Dont be so sure!!

From the JT forums:

"I make a thread because this really amazed me: just hours after the end of polls, people on a forum are talking of civil war and seceding blue states from USA.
The talks are taking place on the peakoil forum, with smart and educate members of both sides. They know NOTHING about John Titor, they're mostly interested in economics and oil."

As with any prognosticator, his predictions were fortified with disclaimers that this "timeline" might proceed differently than his, due in part to his visit. He hinted that in his timeline, the Y2K bug caused mass chaos, and that he was surprised to see that it wasn't occurring here.

Titor's not proven wrong yet! He also said the war started because the cities and rural areas were divided. Check out where the votes came from. The major metro areas voted Kerry, rural voted Bush.

I am joining the shotgun brigrade tomorrow, but first I have to find out where they are.

Yeah, I wouldn't be so sure just yet.

I know one thing that might start a civil war.. If Kerry was to win Ohio at this point from the count of those extra ballots they're working on.

How does being a "liar" come in to play when we are talking about the delusions of some nut bar?

I might form a shotgun regiment, but do we really need a whole brigade?

Hell yeah! The more the better.

Everyone I've talked to today is really pissed Kerry stepped down without the other returns coming back. Many have been talking about starting civil unrest and undermining the Bush administration through any means necessary, including Time Travel and Shotgun Brigrades.


























Not really, but hopefully someone will see that and quote it on another forum for prood that the civil war could happen.

If I'm going to use Time Travel, it would be to put money in Microsoft in 1985, not futz around with some election...

There have been a few Titor threads around, probably still around for those who want to search.

I think I know the link your thinking of and it is about a guy that was trying to capitalize on Titor's claims, not the guy claiming to be Titor himself. Titor has never actually tried to sell anything and didn't do anything but post on a couple of message boards answering questions about his mission and life in our future.

Exactly, Titor never once tried to sell anything.

Ever since John Titor came around I have always been curious about the whole thing. I am not saying I believe him, 'cause I really don't. Similarities have been showing up though. My girlfriend in fact has been kinda freaked out about the whole election thing mainly because of Titor.

Right now nothing indicates that Titor is a liar (except that his story is bat shit crazy ), he said that the civil war would begin in 2005, last time I checked it was still 2004. In 2006 I will let Titor leave the back of my mind for good. While I don't believe him in particular, it wouldn't surprise me if he was correct.

Hell, I thought he was discredited when the 2004 Olympics came and went without a hitch.

I feel the same way. It's interesting to watch unfold or not unfold. I don't believe he's a timetraveller, though.

For reals:

There was a protest/riot in downtown Portland yesterday because of people upset over Kerry's concession and many thought the voting was rigged nationally. Really, it was on the news. There were cops and everything.

It's the beginning!
