I found the major flaw.
If he sat down on his little box, hit the switch, and jumped back 36 years, he wouldn't be sitting on earth any more.
Time would start going back, he would be stationary, because if time isn't moving normally then nothing like gravity would be holding him to the earth, and if he basically just stepped through the kerr hole, he'd come out in a place where earth wasn't.
He couldn't even just travel exactly a year, because the sun is moving through space too.
So unless he somehow can fly on that box, or they managed to make something that 'homed him in' on the earth before he stepped out, he'd have come back for a long sit in space.

Here is a good link that in my mind proves John Titor was a hoax let me know what you think.

im not really sure why anyone else hasnt seemed to notice except me as far as i know, but on one of his forum replies he mentions that income tax no longer exists and then on another reply he states that yes they pay taxes just like we do now, though a small point i think saying two opposite things is more than enuf to prove the hoax, i mean who among is can be unsure whether or not taxes exist? its absolute folly, a very good hoax indeed and he seems like he has the ability to be a very productive person, just a pity he focuses all his efforts on fooling people, also other things, mad cow disease, you might not have known much about it over in the US at the time but here in the UK we were hearing alot about mad cow disease and the close future problems it will cause before this john guy even showed on the scene, and not to mention at the time all of this information was freely avaliable to him on the net, it is just a natural consiquence that some people are going believe what they read, hear and even see if they really want it to be true - look up every wacky story on the net and try to find one that at least one person doesnt believe - you wont, these people are always believed by someone or other hoping that their life maybe a bit more untangable than it seems, maybe if believed in themselves a bit more and realise how fantastic a thing being alive is they wouldnt be looking for that x factor to turn their life into their favorite sci story....just a thought

The guy is not a time traveler. DUH! At this point, who cares? Why are some of you snickering at others who see the writing on the wall? It's not nice, and I'm sure you believe in something on here that others think is ridiculous. Titor-whoever that individual is-either was great at predictions by looking at trends, or actually has some sort of psychic ability. I'm thinking the former. I've been studying him for a bit now, and he's been pretty much on the money. I never thought he was a time traveler. I always thought he could be right. Patriot Acts 1 & 2 convinced me he was on the right track. Mad cow was a good guess, but anyone shooting straight in the beef industry could have told you that one 5 years ago. That has been going on a long time, whether we want to think about it or not.
I say, keep an eye out on Titor's predicitons. You never know-the guy could be an insider who knew the "big plan" even before 9-11. Stranger things have happened. Nothing is a coincodence, in my opinion. Not on this grand a scale. I'm still somewhat skeptical, but if we start seeing "Waco-type" events near the end of this year and the beginning of next year-I'm going to start on my bug-out pack.

he predicted this when? in 2000/2001? What about the tsunami which killed more than 100,000 people, just some thing to think about.
If John Titor was born in 1989, and came here from his year 2036 in a time machine, then he would have been on Earth as a 2 year old, as well as, a 38 year old man in the year 2000.
He knew the pictures taken from infared cameras mounted on planes showed feds firing into the building (for arguments sake, lets all assume thats what they showed, which they very well might have). How would a 5 year old know that? Or did he search for it on the nonexistant internet while fighting in Alabama with his trusty shotgun?
But, honestly. Who wants to do all that work going into current events, and beef companies just to start an Internet hoax? I think he is genuine.
