Can someone please explain this Sandy Hook "prediction"?

The forum itself seems to be real:

So the question becomes, is this an authentic post from over 2 years ago?

Could someone have created a back dated hoax?

I love a good conspiracy theory (fact) as much as the next guy, but doesnt this seem a bit too coincidental?

It's explained somewhere in that thread itself. That forum allows for easy date manipulation. The OP supposedly did it as a cautionary tale about people trusting date based Internet memes.

Wow, absolutely bizarre, if this is genuine. I am without words to describe words for this.

I dont think I'm seeing it.

Can you quote or point me to the telling post?

Just seems like a normal exchange.

I'm headed out ATM and the admin at that forum has apparently locked the thread and also locked new membership applications - which was not the case 3-4 days ago when I first visited.

When I get home, this afternoon or evening, assuming it's not too terribly late - I'll see if I can't track down a reference. I am pretty sure that there is one already extant on ATS, quoting and linking to the source... but that may well be in the trash by this point.

If I do get home too late, then tomorrow morning.

It is explained here, bottom of the page.

Yeah . . . there was some timestamp manipulation here. If you look at the thread, the ID is 3417. Around that time, all other thread IDs were in the low to mid 1000's. Nice try though.

Yeah, it was done to prove to a Sandy Hook truther here on our forum that not everything "timestamped" on the internet is accurate. Things can be manipulated. But I guess that was lost on some people...

So how is the time stamp "manipulated"? Can it be done here too? I'm not buying the explanation, especially since the other thread on this just vanished.

From that forum's FAQ:

You may also post entries that have a time stamp in the past. This is useful for those entries that you just forgot to post and they work best in chronological order.

To past date an entry, create an entry as normal but before submitting the entry, find Publish Status in the Miscellaneous Options on the lower section of the entry creation page. This option defaults to Publish Now.

Change Publish Now to Publish On and then choose the date and time that you wish for the entry to appear to have been posted. If you select a date in the future, you will be creating a Pending Entry
