Prelude to tomorrow

I'm a skeptic who holds no currency in quackery or new age nonsense. So it was really just an amusing curiosity when I began hearing about John Titor a couple of years ago.

Titor is either elaborate hoax or a soldier from 2036 sent back in time to correct an error in Unix that eventually causes a Y2K-like crisis. Titor showed up in some discussion forums in November, 2000, and over a five-month period of time said some provocative things about what supposedly lay ahead.

According to Titor, civil war begins festering in the U.S. in 2004-2005, leading to an escalation in 2008 that ultimately results in nuclear war.

"You will be forced to ask yourself how many civil rights you will give up to feel safe," Titor allegedly wrote nearly a year before 9/11. "The conflict was not about taking and holding ground it was about order and rights. They were betting that people wanted security instead of freedom and they were wrong."

For details about Titor and discussion about his hoax/prophesies, look here and here.

Of course it's all baloney.

Isn't it?
