Just noticed this thread, well I say I've been called titor at least a dozen times but now it's more now, sorry I'm not an attention whore, I just
tried different tactics over the years, claiming to be titor never worked, but I am
positive the author behind the fictional character was inspired by Art Bell's time-travel caller line, I've been listening to Art Bell since 1989...
or 1990, around there... the first show I ever heard was Hoagland talking about alien structures on the moon... he named off slides, I was so gullible
at the time that I wrote down the nasa slide numbers and thought that was actually important information, but now I know Hoagland sees alien
structures in the clouds, anyway that background is just to say after listening to the show from 1990 to 1997 I can say I can't remember a single
time Art having a time-traveler caller line, and if he did it was very rare, around 1998 Art came up with the idea to start the time-travel caller
line as a regular feature in the show.... the calls ranged from 12 yr old girls repeating the BS their parents whispered in their ear to lunatics that
claimed the sun was going to explode in 2 days, but this line prompted callers to up the ante, they got better and better everytime Art opened that
line... Titor supposedly faxed Art Bell, or a Titor-like guy did anyway and claimed Y2K would be a major disaster, I can't even remember if the faxer
used the name Titor.... that was in 1998 I remember Art reading off the faxes and they were total bs... but maybe the story jived with Titors..... so
if it was him he had 3 years to perfect his story which he did and had a short window to publish his hoax on Art Bell's forum before it went down, so
he had 3 years to draw those diagrams, 3 years to build the prop, take the photos... when Art started reading his stuff the story took off...
I happened to be in Arizona when Titor was posting, but I didn't frequent the Art bell website enough to even notice there was a forum, I listened to
the show but didn't surf the web as much.
I have always been interested in time travel... I'm a major skeptic but some paranormal things have happened to me in relation to time. I once saw a
backhoe, one of those caterpillar digging machines, I once saw one while looking out a window, I casually watched it as it picked up dirt and dropped
it in a pile, I even saw the guy inside working the machine, in mid-drop of a pile of dirt, and I swear I didn't even blink, this scene changed from
a new machine to an older machine, there was no longer a guy inside, the backhoe was a bit dirtier, and no pile of dirt existed, but a hole was still
there, so I believe if it was some type of time-warp, I saw only a few days or weeks into the past. It looked like the type of dirt that would build
up over only a few days with rain and working. This event isn't all.... when my parents were younger they were in downtown sacramento I believe, and
they saw an old chinese resturant while in the car, they saw the waiters serving people and people eating inside, a lit up typical chinese resturant,
when they parked and got out the resturant was abandoned, borded up and obviously closed down for many years. So maybe this type of visual time-warp
runs in the family. Of course these statements might be taken out of context, but neither me or my parents have ever taken illegal drugs, nor were we
drunk on anything.
In 1999 I did post on the montaukproject.com forums though... ok maybe it was 2000, anyway if you search in there enough you can find the IP I used in
I posted as both Razimus and Raz.
I really do consider it a great possibility that Titor did post on that forum,
it was the right time... unless he was unfamilliar with the montauk story, I have all of the IP addressed from that forum archived in my personal
I have looked at them but haven't found anything, I can look again I suppose, I was more focusing on the handles, didn't see any similar or
suspicious names, but I can post this in the future if it can help anyone possibly find JT. Now that I look at it, that forum and entire site went
down before 2001, maybe they wanted to focus all their attention on something else, the webmaster for that site was/is Shelly Palmer, he's a guy that
makes videos now and is very public. www.shellypalmermedia.com...
He kinda looks like the 'Steve' in the 'dimensional traveler' video, but who doesn't?
An update with the John Titor drama I'm facing currently can be seen here:
If I were Titor, why would I allow myself to be threatened with lawsuits among other things, I'd have Haber all over them (if I were JT which I'm
not), but I do live next to a lawyer, he recently had the cops told on him because he dumped his tree clippings in the public wash, which is illegal,
claiming you are a time traveler is not illegal, and claiming someone may or may not be that guy is also not illegal.
I am seriously happy that I'm even considered a suspect behind the John Titor hoax, I will gladly call myself a hoaxer of this hoax which was not a
crime, the authors behind John Titor broke no laws and their actions were never illegal, I seek only to find him out, out of pure curiosity.
Also if I were Titor my predictions would be dead wrong most of the time... but in the prediction call in line in 1999, I called up Art, and I
predicted that California would lose power, I was prediction #13 or #14 I believe, anyway California did lose power and a year later Instead of the
common bonk Art gave me a a ding ding ding... so suck on that Titor.
