D4rk Kn1ght, I've always liked your threads and your posts. I really don't think I have ever had anything but a positive view of you and I enjoy
reading what you write. You have seemed to be a person of fair integrity. Bearing that in mind, please take what I am about to post as "constructive
criticism" and not an insult.
I do not believe what you have posted here. It simple does not seem vaguely plausible or realistic and there are more than a few wholes in what
you're telling us.
First, there is the person who divulged this mystery. An "untraceable" person who is your wife's friend's dead father. You can provide nothing to
substantiate that he died, or that he existed at all. This way, you don't have any sticky problems with having anyone "fact check" your
Second, you give a date distant enough that its not "impending". Meaning that no one can even verify any of this for at least 18 months or so. That
way, you can keep posting here for a good deal of time and before people start really questioning why it isn't happening, you can easily fade off the
Third, selling everything you own makes zero sense. Faced with a warning of a world/human race changing event, few would "sell off" everything.
Rather, the best bet would be to hedge your bets and finance everything out the wazoo. That gives you capital, but also keeps your lifestyle the same
should it be a false alarm.
Fourth, Your reasoning for selling rather than mortgaging is because you're worried the "tax man", or possibly the "bank man", would come
calling. When you're staring down an Earth changing fate, who the h*** would be more afraid of a bill collector? Besides, they'd already have your
home/car/first born as collateral, you'd just be written off as defaulting and they'd seize assets. Big deal.
Fifth, change everything to currency? That makes no sense. Sure for the near term some liquidity is necessary, but if this is as big as you are
representing, paper bills are worthless. Plus, assuming this isn't an extinction kind of thing, any government that reforms may well devalue old
monies. The only insurance you'd have is precious metals, and lots of them. And, for the most part, they were a helluva lot cheaper when you got the
news of this 2 years ago. You'd have forgone the paper currency totally, except for an expense account, and be sitting on a pot of gold like a
leprechaun. Come on, I'm one guy. You can't tell me that 8 people, some with doctorates, talking about this for 2 years can't come up with
"Forget the bills, buy gold and a rudimentary smelt and coin press" ?
Sixth, someone faced with this sort of knowledge and believing it 100% as you profess would most likely be screaming at the top of their lungs for the
last 24 months. Heck, at the very least Alex Jones would listen. It would be a moral imperative to try to expose those behind it. Maybe the efforts
would stave off the event for a while.
Seventh. In my opinion the damning price of the puzzle. This wife's, friend's, father's story. The one without even a piece of paper to corroborate
it. So the wife's friend took the father's story on complete faith? Nothing there to back it up? No, "In my desk drawer in a manila folder there's
a sheet of paper" thing? Nothing stores on a safe deposit box? Nothing? Nada? Nothing tangible you could show us? And the story was so persuasive
that the father convinced the child, and then in turn gave such an impressive and moving retelling of it that you and your wife took it on faith alone
and are ready to tune in, turn off, drop out, and become Sherpas? If the story is so convincing, and the teller so moving, why aren't their videos on
prisonplanet right now convincing millions to take action and avert disaster?
D4rk Kn1ght, I like you. Really I do. It maybe that part of your story is true, maybe there was a deathbed confession, maybe his kid bought into it,
maybe they even related it to you, and maybe you even believe it. But I find it hard to believe that you and yours totally liquidated everything and
are ready to bug out.
Conveniently, liquidation of houses, cars, debt payoff etc. all have tangible proofs that every responsible adult saves. So you CAN prove that you are
doing what you say you are.
I issue a challenge to you.
Our mods here have always been above reproach. Reach out to one, prove your identity to them (NOT US, none of us regular folk need to know anything
about you). Then provide them with proof that you've paid off your debts, sold your cars, sold your house, and all of your various stock assets.
You do that, and I see one of the head ATS folks post something to the effect of "ID checked out, IP matches location, all proofs attested to", and
I'll put my stuff on the market that day.
Until then, I'm sorry my friend, but this is little more than a scary bedtime story.
