This is hardly a prediction. Its part of what people have allways hoped CERN could do.
Indeed, titor was able to say this because it was already established that it'd try to do this...
And most damningly, the whole titor story was lifted, in detail, from a fictional book.
I'd like to see an article mentioning how CERN was planning on creating black holes prior to John Titor's predictions
Do you think then that the research came up out of nowhere? Or that it jumped from nothing to getting time at cern to make black holes?
Also, which book did Titor copy?
I beleive it was called 'alas babylon'.
The way Titor described it, the localized distortion field created by holding two microsingularities in close proximity dislodges the occupants
of the field from time
You do realize that thats a lot of pseudo-scientific babble right? Its meaningless. The [babble] lets you travel thru time. Even if the whole
thing is true, and titor is from the future
, that stuff is still babble, because its meaningless in the hear and now. 'We don't know how titor
travels thru time', is all that can be said.
Martial Law would probably do the trick.
Sure, one can make up all sorts of possiblities that can make civil war. Problem is, the titor mythos is a radical right militia movement wet dream.
The scum in the city are the ones who give up their rights, and the folks in the country proudly maintain them, and the 'battle lines' parrallel the
2000 election districts, with democrats in the cities and republicans on the good side. Any 'situation' that is dreamt up almost invariably
invovles bush doingsomething crazy. I can't see bush getting democrats in the cities to side with him in a civil war against the rest of the
One could say 'well I'll wait and see', but why bother? its all bunkum.
Can you prove that?
Considering that you take vague translations about iron bolts to mean nuclear missiles and advanced techonolgoy, I suppose I can prove that using a
recipe for black pudding.
a popular press article about the science and history of black holes. It
Einstein showed us that matter and energy are equivalent, so you can also make a black hole by pushing a huge amount of energy into a tiny volume. For
those kinds of experiments, there's an obvious choice: particle accelerators.
The point is, the idea is not something that you have to be from the future to have thought of, and its not happening 'accidentally' either.
\There are 9 months to go to 2006.
And there have not been Waco type events each month. Prediction failed.
That is actually true there was quite a bit of unrest around election time
He was talking about civil unrest, not people whining about their guy not winning.
There is an issue that could cause a civil war - a draft and a war with Iran
Which doesn't fit in at allin the titor scenario. But, agian, we can easily imagine a situation in which civil war might be provoked and the
Russians nuke the US. Heck, someone did so
and passed it off as a story from a time traveler.
I worked at CERN (and recently visited) for a long time.
So when are you going to give John Titor credit for inventing black holes?!!
Seriously tho, what did you do there?
