According to John Titor,he is/was/will be a North American soldier from 2036 who returned to the year 1975 to get an IBM 5100 computer.
On his return to 2036, he stopped in 2000 for particular family matters and to warn the world about the American Civil War, World War III, and Mad Cow Disease.
He gained fame from the end of 2000 to march 2001 when he began to post messages in different forums, initially with the username “timetravel_0” and then revealing his name as John Titor.
He said he was an American soldier from 2036, initially born in Tampa, Florida.
The US government assigned him to the time travel project.
He traveled back to 1975 with the mission to retrieve a computer, IBM 5100.
The 5100 runs the APL and BASIC programming languages necessary to debug a problem on Unix systems in 2036.
John Titor was explicitly selected for this mission because his paternal grandfather was directly involved in the assembly and programming of the IBM 5100.
The John Titor’s Predictions
John Titor gained notoriety after posts on Art Bell BBS Forums from “Coast to Coast” host Art Bell, where he made some embarrassing revelations about our future.
- 2001: CERN discovers the basis for time travel creation of mini black holes. Update! (it was accidentally discovered only in 2014)
- 2004: The New United States Civil War, after the elections in 2004.
A civil conflict “would have an event similar to the Waco siege every month and would worsen evermore” and explode in 2008. (None of this has ever happened)
- 2004: Olympic Games, no official Olympic Games will be organized after 2004. (None of this has ever happened)
- 2008: The United States elected a female president in the year 2008. (Hillary Clinton lost in the primaries to Barack Obama) Update! (Lost in 2016 to Donald Trump)
- A Skyscraper that does not exist in the New York landscape in 2036. (Remark was made in a fax to Art Bell in 1998)
- He mentioned that the US constitution would be taken little by little from American citizens in the future. (not far from accurate)
- No weapons of mass destruction were found in Iraq. (true)
- China would be the following country to put a man in space. (true)
- Multiple times NASA has had problems with the space shuttles. (true)
- Stephen Hawking changed his opinion about some of his physics theories on Black Holes. (true)
- In another statement, he tried to warn everyone about the “Mad Cow” disease (Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease) being discovered in the US and that it would be a significant problem in the future.
This disease’s peak occurred in 1992 and 1993 in England.
- 2015: World War 3: Russia launches a nuclear attack on the largest cities of the United States, China, and Europe—the United States counterattacks.
After the war, Omaha, Nebraska, became the nation’s new capital.
Titor is vague regarding the motivations and exact causes of World War III.
In one of his remarks, he characterized hostilities as arising from “border strikes and overpopulation,” But also talks about a conflict between Arab Nations and Israel as a harbinger of World War III.
As a reminder, Arabic and Israel have been battling for millenniums. Update! (none of this has ever happened)
- At 13 years old in 2011, John Titor claimed he fought with the “Fighting Diamondbacks,” a shotgun infantry unit of Florida, for at least four years.
But he also posted describing himself as hiding from the war.
- 2036: With the world destroyed by World War III, life sources are contaminated, and you will be forced to produce your food
Who is John Titor?
On March 21, 2001, Titor announced his departure from our timeline to travel to 2036.
But then, in 2006, Kay Titor claimed to be John Titor’s mother, and the John Titor Foundation represented her.
No one has ever seen this woman, even after she gave an interview to Coast to Coast.
She did not speak and only talked thru her attorney, Larry Haber.
At the same time, he has no records of a “Titor” family in Florida or Nebraska, much less John Titor.
John Titor’s real identity revealed?
In 2008, an Italian TV show called “Voyager – Ai confini della conoscenza” from TV Network RAI.
On the episode broadcast on May 19, 2008, the program hired private detective Mike Lynch to investigate the case.
Mr. Lynch researched for Titor family records in Florida but found nothing indication from John Titor or the Titor family.
Next, he researched the John Titor Foundation, the legal guardian for the John Titor brand, and her family.
Mike Lynch went to the address informed and had no office; it’s all fake! The talk is at a rented mailbox.
After that, he went after the legal guardian appointed by the Titor family to care for everything about John Titor, Larry Haber.
While interviewing Larry Haber, the detective, he recorded, and upon reviewing the video.
He identified John Rick Haber as paying close attention to Larry’s answers.
John Rick Haber is the brother of Larry Haber and a computer expert.
The Haber family was profiting a lot on Titor.
Mike Lynch has no doubts that he found the real identity of John Titor, John Rick Haber.
But why make a Hoax?
A book self-published by The John Titor Foundation Inc, “John Titor A Time Traveler’s Tale” on Paperback, and 174 pages on sale at Amazon for over $2200 US dollars and some exemplars for over $2900 US Dollars. Yes, almost three thousand dollars.
We are at least a quarter of a century to know if time travel is authentic, maybe not even there.
For some, he is a natural Time Traveler, a hero who saved us from Y2K, US Civil War, and WW III.
Others, it was a clever hoax, seeking their “15 minutes” or a scam for profit.
Others also believe The US Government sent John Titor with the mission to try to spread mass disinformation.
I’ll let you with John Titor’s last message.
“Bring a gas can with you when the car dies on the side of the road.”
