John Titor Hoax Update #3

I will release the John Titor Hoax Update #3 in the coming weeks, hopefully days if not hours. I do not know exactly the second my video will be uploaded to youtube so I recommend you subscribe at:

Update #3 may be my last update on this case, I am getting very close to the end of this case and once and for all I will be able to close it and move on!

Concerning the identity behind John Titor, the mystery will go away and to those that don't want knowledge that may be considered a spoiler I recommend you do not view my blog or youtube page in the coming weeks. The nails in the coffin have already been hammered by others, at this point I was just looking for a nice headstone that fit and I found it, these are just analogies in no way do I wish harm on the authors behind John Titor, their own personal karma will catch up to them.

I will be confirming my findings with a few other sources before I publish it, I can't jump the gun on this as I did with my february 13th report, in that report I accidentally named the guys at the top John Titor suspects, not only are they not John Titor, they have helped me with clues which has led to the proof I have finally found!

I am looking forward to exposing other hoaxes!

Was this video made by Denny Unger?

According to Spiderj in this thread
Denny Unger is the creator of the famous 'Steven - Dimensional Traveler?' also known on youtube as the 'John Titor Farewell' video.

I am welcome to Denny Unger being the 'Steven' in this video, and he sure looks like him, but since Steven's face is so heavily covered by a hat and glasses I can't assume the resemblance of the back of his head and chin are enough for it to be Denny unless there is proof somewhere that he admitted to making this video.

Where is Denny Unger's confession? Where is the proof? Please Denny Unger, email me at and let me know what you think about this video, I know your busy with your 2d artwork RPG game business, and I know you have been suspected before by Pamela and others of being John Titor, but after searching google I can't find you ever admitting to making this video, so maybe you privately sent Pamela an email which convinced her you made it, but please post a reply or email me so we can know for sure, thanks.

As poor as some claim this video is, it's actually not that bad, considering the fact that it was posted on the same forum as early as early 2001, the same time and the same place John Titor posted his famous 'I am from 2036' thread.

To those that say this video is fake and has nothing to do with John Titor, of course it is fake but please see the above paragraph before sending your comments, it's connection to John Titor is, "the fact that it was posted on the same forum as early as early 2001, the same time and the same place John Titor posted his famous 'I am from 2036' thread."

It was also later sent to ANOMALIES.NET and claimed to either be real, or a re-enactment of a secret project that was real. Because of this it has been copied and multiplied all over youtube in connection with John Titor. ANOMALIES.NET was not the originator of the video, 'Steven' was and he first posted it on, it was only later posted on ANOMALIES.NET months later.

Again I ask where is the proof that Denny Unger made this video?

A Response to the John Titor Report

This is a rare video response I've had from my report coming out, I wish more people mentioned in the report would have made a video, a blog, or sent me an email.

This is one of the original people to have replied to John Titor in the 'I am from 2036' thread in early 2001 on the forum. Her descriptioin for this video says,

"My experience with the time traveller John Titor. In response to a blog which has my name as a possible hoaxster. I am not, I just had an experience. In the end it is most likely I was hoaxed by an individual who claimed to be him however, I will have proof when my grandson gets married. If it is the same woman John told me it will be then he was, is a real time traveller. I have his book so I am on sellingi on amazon, I may have wren a review on the book, or just by buying it I am linked to him."

She said John Titor emailed her and basically did what a fortune teller does via email. Titor told her who her grandson would marry and something concerning her health. Lets pretend for a second John Titor was a time traveler sent back on a secret mission, he blabs about it in a fax he sends to Art Bell and he blabs all over the internet, then those that want to believe email him, he emails and like Sylvia Browne, he claims to know details of their own personal future. Apparently he memorized this lady's personal records or brought them back with him from 2036, if this is true John Titor's mission was to A. Get a computer from 1975, B. In 2001 tell a lady in an email what happens to her and her family in the future. Like she says she was most likely hoaxed by John Titor or someone claiming to be him.

If you are in Canada right now as you read this, I have a question to ask you, the question is simply where in Canada are you? Please post your City and/or Region in the comments or email me at , the reason I'm asking this question will become clear in a few days. I'll probably ask the question again but your help is appreciated.

Also more updates are coming soon, future HOAXHUNTER topics will include: Gnome Hoaxes?, The Philadelphia Experiment Hoax?, The John Titor Hoax?, The Montauk Project Hoax?, The Alternative 003 Hoax?, The Project Serpo Hoax?, The Moon Hoax?, The Michael Horn Billy Meier Hoax?, The Elvis Presley Hoax?, The Caret Drone Hoax?, The Jonathan Reed Alien Hoax?, The Mel's Hole Hoax?, The Uri Geller Hoax?, among others.

Note: I do enjoy some of these hoaxes, and I almost don't want to disprove some of the better ones because they are great stories, these hoaxes will lose some of their mystery if debunked. As much fun as some of these hoaxes are, some of them were created by insidious people. I am a fan of Art Bell/Coast to Coast AM, I could pretty much use that show alone to find hoaxes, at least one hoax a weeks is plugged on that show. The Hoaxhunter show will vary from fluff pieces to heavily researched reports, due to my past mistakes I will be more careful stating what is fact and what is my opinion, but I will not cease to state my opinion. My polarization to the nefarious hoaxers is great and it has caused me to become a Hoaxhunter. I've tried to empathize with their mindset, fame and money seems to be a popular goal, but it's never been a goal of mine. Perhaps there is more to the hoaxer than the seeking of fame and money. Some hoaxers may see their work as a joke, a trick, a form of artwork. While art may be involved it would remain an art of deception. Even some illusionists could be hoaxers if they claim supernatural powers, while Criss Angel claims he has no supernatural powers Uri Geller claims the opposite, I would say Uri is a great candidate for a future Hoaxhunter episode, there is no doubt that he is a hoaxer.

I just tossed up the Crispin Glover video because I was working on it while I got reactions to my first John Titor videos and I didn't want to waste it, I am still working on editing the new John Titor videos, my sony movie studio software is very slow, and my computer is very slow and it literally takes days to edit a single video.

The Crispin Glover Episode

Crispin Glover is probably the furthest you can get from being a hoaxer, but his appearance on the Letterman show in 1987 has been called a publicity stunt and this is loosely a hoax. Showbiz publicity stunts will rarely be mentioned on Hoaxhunter. If you have a better hoax you'd like Hoaxhunter to investigate feel free to make a suggestion. This video gives a good background for Crispin and his sense of humor. I personally believe Crispin's famous first visit on Letterman rivals even Andy Kaufman's Late Night stunts. Andy's quirky sense of humor was well known and David Letterman was obviously in on the joke. If the same were the case with Crispin Glover's stunt, why did Letterman walk off stage and not come back until Crispin was gone? This is probably the only time David abandoned a guest like this. Some would compare Crispin Glover's apperance to the recent stunt pulled off by Joaquin Phoenix.

Joaquin's stunt is already more famous than Crispin's, but is it a hoax? I believe it is but I will need more evidence before this can be proven. Puff Daddy's face in this photo says a lot, he's either happy for some unrelated reason or he's in on the joke and with less acting experience than Casey Affleck and Joaquin Phoenix, he can't keep a straight face. Casey's documentary on Joaquin's career change from movie star to hip-hop artist will most likely be a mockumentary as many have suggested.

Crispin Glover admits, if anything, his first appearance on Letterman may have hurt his acting career for a time. The same could happen to Joaquin and it may already have if his claim of quitting acting is true, but due to the publicity he's gained from his stunt he could be back to making Oscar nominated movies in no time. Joaquin Phoenix's claim of never making another movie again seems to be a trend in Hollywood. As I recall Keanu Reeves and Jet Li made the same promise many movies ago. At this point, saying, "I'm never going to make movies again", is Hollywood slang for, "I'll make more movies if the script and price is right". This statement if taken seriously probably floods an actor with more acting offers than ever.

Who is Oliver Williams?

He's been a re-occuring guest on Coast to Coast AM with George Noory many times. That show has at least 20 million listeners worldwide. Oliver could probably make money giving speeches at new age UFO conventions, why doesn't he? He's now supposedly considered the official John Titor "historian", what a load of crap. If you know where I can find a photo of Oliver Williams on the web send me the link, the question is, is he camera shy? is Oliver Williams even his real name? Maybe if he showed himself his real name would quickly be pointed out, I don't know this is just one possibility.

I already know what Larry Haber looks like, he's all over youtube, well I know a lot of new TV shows and movies are coming out pretty soon involving JT, hopefully Oliver is in one of these so I don't have to ask that question anymore.


I am going to make a new video, since you haven't seen it yet you can't judge it, whining and crying in your replies isn't going to convince anyone of anything. Let me guess, if my video gets few views you will pay less attention to it, and if it gets many view you will pay more attention to it. I can't control how many people pay attention to my blog or youtube videos, let alone control how they think about it, they can come to their own conclusions and judge for themselves. I don't care if I get 1 view or 1,000,000 views, I just want to expose this hoax once and for all.

I'm not going to apologize to the possible 88 fake names, 1 of the 'fake names' count that 1! One said he was mentioned as a fake name, okay so the potential fake name list drops to 87. Olav can't speak for these people, they can speak for themselves, this is what the non-fake name said about my report,

"So, Razimus, you may be right. But in this instance, by referring to me as a "fake name", i.e. an unreal person, you are very wrong. Your caveat is correct:

'It's possible a few of these names could be real people, but that would only be possible if they never posted about Titor under that name ever again.' - Razimus

This is the only time since that Art Bell message board, that I have posted anything about my "Titor experience" for a very good reason: I don't care that much about it and think it a fake. And if I had posted again about it, I certainly would not have done so with my real name. In fact, I think I may have only posted on 1 or 2 unrelated threads on that board and then only a few lines of opinion. I eventually left it for things of greater interest on the web to me. And with several different "aliases" or nicknames not related to my own.

Finally, I have no affiliation with any of those others listed, I think I visited once or twice but certainly never registered to do anything there.

Thanks for my 15 minutes of fame. I was hoping for more from it." - Beaux

Sorry Beaux for saying yours was a fake name. Thank you for coming forward and proving me wrong in your case.

I'm not sorry to the 87 names that have not come forward. How else am I going to prove whether or not they are/were real or not? If you personally can prove to me X is a real name then I will be happy to apologize for calling X a fake name, as far as defamation, this never took place. I'm never going to apologize for defamation because defamation never took place. I never said anyone was John Titor, I said these X people "may or may not be" John Titor, there is a *BIG* difference, a difference you really need to notice.

So who is John Titor? this is the question, there is more interest in this question than I expected, I just intended on making a hoaxhunter investigation blog/show and I randomly chose the John Titor hoax as the first hoax I would pick for the show, future topics will likely involve The Philadelphia Experiment, The Montauk Project, Alternative 3, among other hoaxes. Those 3 I happen to have already researched at length and can easily give my view on them as well as state the facts proving whether or not they were hoaxes. Just a hint, I will likely not talk about things that are not hoaxes, I probably won't waste my time posting the results of potential hoaxes that were proven non-hoaxes, unlike mythbusters, and unlike mythbusters I will avoid myths and focus on man made fame/money-scheme hoaxes.

One footnote in the history of this silly hoax. Is Rick Donaldson John Titor?

Nope, he's not sophisticated enough to pull off the John Titor hoax. I never considered Rick a high suspect and he knows it, I think he's trying to protect his friend and get some spotlight at the same time because he may be jealous. A note to Rick, calling me a drunk when I never have been in my life is slander. I may or may not address Rick in my next video, but he owes me an apology for his false statements against me.

Who is behind John Titor?

Who is behind John Titor?

I suggest everyone reading this begin helping me in the effort to uncover his true identity. This goes especially for those that for some strange reason fear being mixed up with the fictional character. Why would anyone fear being mixed up with John Titor, the fictional character? I don't know, that is a question in and of itself.

People have called me John Titor at least a dozen times, I find it a compliment, I am not John Titor, not so easy proving it, is it?

The public will read this just like they read any other blog, they will move on and go about their daily lives probably thinking nothing of it. The public will always judge and believe what they wish to, as they should, it's their right to believe in what they want to. They can believe in a time traveler from the year 2036 for all I care. There's also a right in the U.S.A., it's called freedom of speech. I have that right, and if you live in my country, so do you.

It appears that the same people that have already put themselves out in the public domain, talking about John Titor for years, posting on internet forums about John Titor, and talking about John Titor on worldwide radio programs are the same people that claim to have no possible connection to John Titor, why is this?

Their connection to the John Titor story is historical fact. They either directly replied to John Titor or they archived his posts and frequently talk about him on radio programs or other places on the internet. This alone does not mean they are the authors behind John Titor, nor did I ever say this, I said they could be, based on their connections to the story. They could be, that's all I said, and the backlash from a few of them has been beyond overkill.

My little web report simply showed the obvious, the obvious is, why haven't these guys been looked at as possible authors behind this story?

One person claims to have been harmed, by my stating that they may or may not be behind John Titor. I've attempted to apologize, yet apologies are not enough for this person. I don't know what they want. Do they want compensation? Compensation for what? Do they want compensation because I claimed they may or may not be someone that committed no crime? They will receive zero compensation from karma unless they follow their spiritual path.

My words are crystal clear, find the person behind the fictional character known as John Titor if you are really serious about being disassociated with the fellow, and all confusion concerning you and this fictional character will cease. If you are not serious about John Titor, you are a normal person, he's a silly nerd man who was smart, yet he claimed impossible things. If you are not serious about helping me find the true identity behind John Titor then please stop sending me threatening emails, good day.

Okay, now we're getting somewhere. People are emailing me left and right.

Phil Fiord emailed me and told me his side of the story, I think he thought I didn't know things which I already knew, but it's not those things that have persuaded me to take him off the suspect list, it's the fact that he emailed me and gave an honest argument in his defence. This is the exact opposite of what the authors behind JT would do.

Since hoaxing a time-traveler in 2001 is not illegal or a crime I have never claimed any of these suspects were criminals or broke the law in any way. The JT story is entertainment and always has been, is it dishonest? it depends on who you ask, if you ask George Noory he would probably say no it's not dishonest, Noory honestly thinks JT was either a time traveler or a very intuitive person, does that sound like Noory thinks he's dishonest? nope. Noory recenty said about me that "I was an investigator but I admitted to making some mistakes", this is true, so please if your on the suspect list, send me an email, it's as simple as that. Whether I buy your side of the story will depend on whether or not you're telling the truth.

The truth is on my side, is it on yours? This isn't to say I can't be fooled, but I have a pretty good BS detector that has fought against the 10 cds for a penny scam, timeshares, telemarketers, junkmail, spam, any scam you can think of, I haven't fallen for any of them. If it has served me well in the past I'm not going to abandon it, again I ask anyone to join HOAXHUNTER if you think you can help me in this or any other hoax.

I will stand alone and say I am an unbiased investigator that comes to my conclusions strictly based on facts gathered through deep investigaton, educating myself on these facts and I admit to using my logic and conjecture on the facts but what else can I use to piece these things together? Then I expose what I know.

I saw a scan once of the very envelope with Pamela's address blanked out and very IBM logo that was mailed to Pamela, I also saw a photo of Pamela. I believe I saw these images at or, one or the other, since those are the only 2 forums I've ever posted more than 5 posts on, except for and it wasn't there. The threads or posts must have been deleted shortly after. The envelope was yellow, the IBM logo looked ordinary and I don't think there was a return address, so the Titor-hoaxers probably sent it to her anonymously.

So I ask, can anyone bring me this image?

In the thread, it said that Pamela didn't even get a letter inside the envelope, just the logo.

The image itself is not important, it's just few have seen it and few know it exists. I could comment on the photo of Pamela but I'd rather not at this moment.

The person to email me this image, I'll be your friend. I'm going to move on from this JT drama, since nobody is willing to help me, people that know a great deal, and they can correct my mistakes but they can't give me anything to work with, the more I talk about Titor the more the nerdy man behind the hoax gets happy that his name is even mentioned, at least this is how I picture the author behind John Titor.

Until someone helps me out, I will be focusing on other hoaxes.

Sunday, February 15, 2009


Olav Phillips, webmaster of is not John Titor, he is in an Italian made documentary on Titor, the part with Olav can be seen here:

Olav emailed me and claimed innocence, he said he was a UFO researcher and had nothing to do with the John Titor hoax. In faith I am currently going to take his word for it.

Since the John Titor hoax is not technichally a crime punishable by any laws, I seek not to label anyone party to the hoax criminal. They masterminded quite a tall tale, whether for their own gain or ours depends on the point of view, but I will still look for clues that may lead me to the source of this hoax. Out of pure curiosity, and to give some time back to those that have or will have lost it due to this fairy tale.

This is a 2005 article I wrote after asking Dr. Michio Kaku about John Titor.

Can Mini Black Holes Bend Time?
Dr. Michio Kaku on The Flawed Science of John Titor

By John 'Razimus' Hughston
Space Time News Writer
Sunday, January 23rd, 2005

On Thursday, January 20th, 2005 at 6:55 PM, I sent an email to Dr. Michio Kaku, a leading theoretical quantum physicist in the world and co-founder of String Theory. I asked him the following question concerning John Titor.

I don't know if you've heard about the supposed time traveler named 'John Titor'. I believe he is fake but thousands believe he is real. I think it would help for them to hear what a real theoretical quantum physicist had to say about it. You don't have to read his entire story to know the chances of him being a hoax or not. To summarize: A guy contacted Art Bell back in 1998 and later posted on the internet back in 2001 and claimed to be a real time traveler from 2036. He claims his time machine works by using 2 mini black holes, he claims this technology was already created by CERN. Could you tell me the chances of him being for real?

John 'Razimus' Hughston

On Thursday, January 20th, 2005 at 7:06 PM, I received a reply from Dr. Michio Kaku, he said the following concerning my question on John Titor.

Thanks for the e-mail. For my thoughts about time travel, see, also Parallel Worlds.

I think the person you mentioned is a fake. Mini black holes do not have the power to bend time, and CERN certainly has not produced any. The LHC will be turned on in 2 years, and there is a small chance it might create a mini black hole, but these are sub-atomic in size and energy. Time travel may be possible, but not for a Type 0 civilization. Type III civilizations, however, may have access to the Planck energy, where this possibility opens up.

Michio Kaku

The following is a summary of the first four civilization types:

Type 0 civilizations extract their energy from solar, geothermal and wind power. Most of their power is from non-renewable fossil fuel resources; oil, coal and natural gases. They are beginning to explore their solar system.

Type I civilizations are efficient in controlling all of the resources of their planet and they can control the weather. They have explored their entire solar system and are beginning to explore their galaxy.

Type II civilizations can control all of the energy output from their suns using Dyson spheres. They are exploring other galaxies.

Type III civilizations can control the energy of a galaxy. They can extract the energy from stars and black holes. They are capable of manipulating Planck energy. This is the energy that exists at the center of black holes, where space-time is unstable. Controlling Planck energy could result in the control of worm holes leading to instantaneous travel across the universe. It is unknown what limits this type of civilization would have, they may have access to inter-dimensional travel. They may even be able to time travel.

Michio Kaku on Planck energy from

"The Planck energy only occurs at the center of black holes and the instant of the Big Bang. But with recent advances in quantum gravity and superstring theory, there is renewed interest among physicists about energies so vast that quantum effects rip apart the fabric of space and time. Although it is by no means certain that quantum physics allows for stable wormholes, this raises the remote possibility that a sufficiently advanced civilizations may be able to move via holes in space, like Alice's Looking Glass. And if these civilizations can successfully navigate through stable wormholes, then attaining a specific impulse of a million seconds is no longer a problem. They merely take a short-cut through the galaxy. This would greatly cut down the transition between a Type II and Type III civilization".

Despite the science fiction of John Titor, there will continue to be believers in his unbelievable tale. According to the leading theoretical quantum physicists it would be impossible for a Type 0 civilization to become a Type III civilization within 31 years. The leading theoretical physicists believe we may become a Type I civilization in a hundred years, Type II in a few thousand years, and Type III in a hundred thousand to a million years. That is if we don't destroy ourselves before we reach Type I status.

The flawed science in the Titor story is the reason the scientific community have never taken it seriously. As Michio Kaku said at this point CERN has not been successful in creating any black holes despite their efforts. According to Michio Kaku even if mini black holes were created they would not be capable of manipulating time let alone be the core of a time travel device.

When I say it took me 2 to 3 weeks to compile the John Titor A.K.A. Razimus Report, I meant organize, to be presented here and on youtube, I have been investigating John Titor since 2003.

My first report on John Titor was on September 25th 2004 in which I proved John Titor's 'unique' terminology did exist before he posted, the three rare terms used by Titor were "gravity lock", "super universe", and "local gravity".

In this 2004 report I did not discover who Titor was, but I did discover who first mentioned these terms on the internet, a guy named Gerald O’Docharty. He has since been cleared and is not Titor, John Titor simply stole Gerald O'Docharty's words. Titor also must have visited as early as 1996. This is just an example of my past research, I have tried other options, I still hope someone can piece the puzzle together once and for all.

In the John Titor A.K.A. Razimus Report, once all the truths are told the main thing I think can be said is Titor did register multiple other accounts and talk with himself, and is where most Titor fans went to after the Art Bell forums closed, and the Steven Time-Travel video remains suspect. I am continuing to research and will come to a conclusion for myself, but it is up to you to judge for yourself, the goal is to hit a truth so concrete that everyone will know the identity of John Titor.

This is my 2004 report on John Titor's Identity:

Note the UPDATE at the end...

The True Identity of John Titor Revealed?
Self Proclaimed Time Traveller Slipped Up
Super universe, Gravity lock and Local Gravity

By John 'Razimus' Hughston
Space Time News Writer
Saturday, September 25th, 2004

In November of 2000 a man claiming to be a time traveler began posting on the Time Travel Institute message board using the name "TimeTravel_0". In January of 2001 this person now calling himself, "John Titor", started posting on the Coast to Coast AM with Art Bell forum. He said, "Greetings. I am a time traveler from the year 2036". Such a claim was not uncommon on these time travel themed message boards. Many before Titor were claiming to be from the future as well. Although unlike Titor these other supposed time travelers never posted any photos of their time machine.

With his unique attitude John Titor was immediately prepared to post photos of what he claimed was his time machine. After having posted these photos he started to become very popular. There’s no doubt the self proclaimed time traveler has been successful in making himself known on the internet. Various John Titor blogs spanning across the web are not hard to come by. Whether he is a hoaxer or an actual time traveler he had motivation.

If Titor is a time traveler perhaps he sought to be in the history books of his time. He would have at least realized this would be a possibility. This brings up some questions. Titor claimed to be on a secret military mission, why would he want to expose this mission if it was such a secret? And why would he risk becoming exposed throughout history if he didn’t want his superior officers to know? These questions cannot be answered, as Titor supposedly left our time in March of 2001.

If he is a hoaxer some obvious motivations exist. It could have been an elaborate prank to see how many he could fool. However fame and fortune cannot be ruled out as possible motives. If he is a hoaxer Titor is obviously still here and laughing, but who is he? One obvious suspect is Oliver Williams founder of johntitor dot com and The John Titor Foundation. On December 1st 2003 the following book was published, “John Titor A Time Traveler's Tale” authored under the name, “The John Titor Foundation”. Why would an author want to publish a book and not put their name on it? A review given from a Mr. Hicks who read the book said the following, "You'd be better off just printing out the website". It is claimed that this book was written by John Titor’s mother, but this claim has yet to be backed up with any evidence. It would appear that all signs point to Oliver Williams being the author. Williams was on the radio show Coast to Coast AM with George Noory on August 6th 2004. Williams was there to plug the book for sale on amazon dot com. Among the many guests Coast to Coast AM has had over the years, most have shared a common motive, to advertise their book. As well as advertising the book on his web site it is unsurprising that Williams is also selling other John Titor merchandise such as; T-Shirts, Sweatshirts, Mugs, and Bumper Stickers.

Ever since Titor started posting on the net many have believed his story, but there are many who remain skeptical. The John Titor story has been discussed throughout many forums on the net. It would appear that proof one way or the other has been hard to find. Are these photos posted by Titor actually devices from the future? It is very hard to tell, as the photos themselves are of low quality. Titor also posted what he claimed were official military documents from the time machine manual. As of yet no one has been able to identify what exactly the device is, except for the yellow Geiger counter on top of the supposed time machine.

Among the various message boards there have been many trying to disprove the Titor story. There is even someone offering one hundred dollars if you can find the original source to one of the images Titor posted.

On these forums connections between what Titor said have been made with previously published material. Some say Titor's story was inspired by a fictional role playing book called, GURPS: Time Travel. This book was written by Steve Jackson and published in 1998. In GURPS: Time Travel a U.S. Civil War starts in 2014 and goes to 2017, and World War III goes from 2018 to 2021. According to the future history John Titor posted in 2000, “There is a civil war in the United States that starts in 2005”. Titor also said, “A world war in 2015 killed nearly three billion people”. This war would have to be World War III. Both mention World War III and a U.S. Civil War within a close time frame. This isn’t proof, but GURPS: Time Travel may have inspired John Titor’s story. The connection from John Titor to the GURPS: Time Travel book goes farther. Someone named “Steven Jackson” posted at the same Art Bell time travel forum the same time John Titor did. A poster known as Rick Donaldson replied to Steve's post by asking the question, "Are you Steve Jackson - GURPS Steve Jackson?". This alone doesn’t prove that John Titor is a fraud, but it does prove that the GURPS: Time Travel book was well known at the time travel forum during the time Titor posted there. In an IRC chat Titor said, “world lines are not fixed”, he also said, “By definition, this world line is not the same as mine”. If John Titor's predictions turn out to be wrong this would be his convienent excuse to fall back on.

John Titor slipped up occasionally. On January 6th 2001 he contradicts himself, first he says there are six dimensions, "As I recall, it was this original work that led to the final proof that six dimensions do indeed curl up to give us our observable universe". A poster known as Trott replies to this by saying the following.

"You said 6 curled up dimensions. The current theory suggests that there should be at least 7 curled up dimensions. It was discovered by Ed Witten that if you added an additional dimension that the 5 slightly different versions of string theory would combine into a single theory, which is often called M-theory".

In John Titor's next post he ignores Trott's remarks yet changes his view of how many dimensions there are, "I see time as a mathematical component of a 10 dimensional super universe. It is a variable I use to define my location and existence". Even time travelers make mistakes.

New information recently uncovered by Space Time News suggests that there is another person greatly suspected to be John Titor. After reviewing Titor’s posts we noticed that his vocabulary was unique. Titor used interesting key word phrases such as; “super universe”, “gravity lock”, and “local gravity”. Concerning the topic of time travel these key words are not well known. In fact after doing a specific google search relating to time travel and these key word phrases we could not see a single web source that wasn’t quoting John Titor, except for one. This one source was unique as it was the only one that could be found. We were looking for a connection to “time travel” and “gravity lock”, “super universe”, or “local gravity”. Amazingly one page was found that has all four of those specific key word phrases. Not the individual words but the exact quoted phrases. The one unique source with all of these key word phrases is located at keelynet dot com. Keely Net has been well known among advanced technology and time travel fans, and Coast to Coast AM listeners for years, the site was established in 1996.

The url of the key word phrases source at Keely Net is here, “”.

It is an archive of an e-mail from the Keely Net mail list. The e-mail of the author is not shown but his name is. The author is, “Gerald O'Docharty”. The significance of this e-mail is that it is dated for January 5th 1999, well over a year before John Titor claimed to have arrived and posted on the net. As John Titor said, "My initial flight was from 2036 to 1975 (61 yrs). I then went from 1975 to 2000 (25 yrs.) Later this year, one of two favorable windows will open and I will return to my 2036 (35 yrs.)".

The similarities between Gerald O’Docharty’s e-mail and John Titor’s posts are strikingly similar. On the topic of time travel both O’Docharty and Titor use the phrases; “super universe”, “gravity lock” and “local gravity”. The similarities only begin there. Both O’Docharty and Titor claimed to know the facts of time travel, not as a theory but as something they actually experienced. In the e-mail O’Docharty writes, “In fact, during every-day common life we often branch away from one another's timelines only to re-merge moments later and no one is the wiser”. Published throughout the Keely Net mail list this e-mail is dated for January 5th 1999. Not from the perspective of a theorist or a scientist but from the viewpoint of a time traveler O’Docharty gives specific steps required for time travel. Note the key word phrases are in bold.

"Three steps are required for time travel:
1) Neutralize local gravity lock. This requires expansion of self-vehicle full spectrum radiant field magnitudes and/or velocity acceleration. This could be acheived through either brute force 'terawatt' magnitude external forces, or alternatively through subtle, harmonically precise 'micro' forces.

2) Navigate timelines. Could be done by 'stroboscopically' slowing (halting acceleration) at discreet intervals to maintain upper-harmonic phase sync with local timeline/gravity/space.

3) Drop fields and halt motion to lock back into local gravity. Be careful where you stop though. The local probability may not allow your vehicle's physical existance at that point in time. This might not really be a problem though because you probably couldn't obtain a gravity lock in that instance.

John Titor also listed some requirements for time travel, although in a different format while answering a question,

"There is a gravity lock system that compensates for the local gravity outside of the Tipler sinusoid. This is the reason the unit is only accurate to about 60 years.

...Yes, this is a problem. It was solved by taking a “snapshot” of the local gravity around the unit before leaving a worldline and incorporating it into the sinusoid during travel. The short answer is, you “stick” to the earth but this is only a useful explanation to understand it and it’s not practical. Since the computer system is using a virtual reference, the calculations become flawed. Thus:

1. Based on the accuracy and timing of the “snapshots” the distortion units are limited to how long they can travel before becoming unstable.

2. We must leave and arrive in areas we have prior or future knowledge of in order to avoid massive objects (buildings, water, etc…)

3. The unit has a fail-safe system during travel that drops out in case of a unit shutdown or radical departure in gravity readings.

The following are some quotes of John Titor mentioning "gravity lock" and "local gravity".

"Inside the displacement unit are a series of very sensitive clocks and gravity sensors. This system is called the VGL (variable gravity lock). In simple terms, before the unit 'leaves' a world line, it takes a base reading of the local gravity and adjusts the Tipler sinusoid to 'lock' into that position. Although the tmporal physics of this statment are wrong, in effect, it holds you to the 'Earth'. During travel, it periodically checks to see that the field has not varied. If it does, it stops and reverses course or drops out at that point".

"The hard part of traveling through time is not the bending of gravity but the plotting of your course and holding to the basic "position" in your environment. This is done through a system called VGL (variable gravity lock). Basically, the unit takes a reading of the local gravity and samples it during the "trip" in pulses. If the gravity is too far off, the unit stops or reverses itself to the last sample period where the readings were correct. If there is some sort of failure, the unit shuts down and drops out to where ever you may be".

O'Docharty uses the same key phrases that John Titor used in his vocabulary when discussing time travel. Not only are their vocabularies uniquely similar but their viewpoint on time travel is the same as well. While explaining time travel they both explain it in a similar way, using the example of the cone. In the e-mail from January of 1999, O'Docharty explains his view of how time travel works.

"The observation of the present and its relationship to past and future may be illustrated by this diagram: present
\ /
\ /
\ /
past \/ future
/ \
/ \
/ \

This can be considered as two cones intersecting at a single point of their vertices. The intersection is the point experienced as present or 'now'".

In a post from November of 2000, John Titor explains his view of how time travel works.

"Yes, it can be controlled. However, the distortion unit has operational limits. Imagine your path through time is through a cone. The farther away from the center of the cone, the more differences you will see in the world line".

Both Titor and O'Docharty believe in the multiple universe theory. O'Docharty said,

"At the 'static' super-universe level, all possible timelines are expressed and fully realized as so-called "Parallel Universes". Actually, where there are no differences, those portions of the timelines are united and one the same. That is, they intertwine. ...All possible universes exist but they are not all equally probable and so therefore are not all as easily realised by an observer. Many observers in tune with one another affect the probability wave so that they are more likely to observe the same reality as one another".

John Titor said,

"Now for the physics: The grandfather paradox is impossible. In fact, all paradox is impossible. The Everett-Wheeler-Graham or multiple world theory is correct. All possible quantum states, events, possibilities and outcomes are real, eventual and occurring. The chances of everything happening someplace at sometime in the superverse is 100%.

...In a Universe made up of infinite worldliness (superuniverse), everything is possible and has a 100% probability, therefore…no paradoxes".

The similarities between John Titor and Gerald O'Docharty cannot be dismissed. It is clear that Titor and O'Docharty both share the same viewpoint of how time travel works. They both describe this in a very similar way. They both use a very unique vocabulary. They both are interested in time travel and ufos. They both are fans of alternative media such as of Coast to Coast AM. They both share their views of time travel as if it were a fact, as if they had successfully time traveled themselves.

Gerald O'Docharty could have staged an elaborate hoax such as this. His views on time travel may have been motivation enough. Space Time News has confirmed that the very same Gerald O'Docharty that posted on Keely Net has a highly technical background. In fact in 1997 he said he was a, "Senior Field Applications Engineer, S-MOS Systems Inc". S-MOS was a company affiliated with Epson. He later posted on an RC groups profile, "I'm an electronics engineer and presently working for Epson Electronics as their IC Sales/Marketing Engineer for the Eastern US". Eastern United States, Possibly Florida?

O'Docharty did have the capability to invent the terms in the John Titor story. With his highly technichal background and regularly visiting Keely Net he did know enough about advanced technologies and theories to know how to formulate the John Titor story. It is more probable that John Titor was a hoaxer as opposed to a time traveler. According to the leading physicists of the world today such as Dr. Steven Hawking, Dr. Edward Witten and Dr. Michio Kaku the possibility of time travel does exist, but it is not very probable. They would agree that the most probable reality is that the John Titor story is a hoax.

It is possible that O'Docharty and Williams are associates, although they may have acted alone. Oliver Williams isn't off the hook though, as he claims the book was actually written by John Titor's mother.

[10.26.04] UPDATE: Gerald O'Docharty has since replied on the Time Travel Institute forum to the comments we have made speculating that he may be John Titor. This was his response.

Interesting theory. But sorry, I'm not him. Perhaps he read the same references that you found and modeled his posts from them. -Gerald

A member of this forum emailed me to ask if I was John Titor. This led me to investigate who the hell John Titor is which of course quickly turned up this web site and yours. I feel it is easier to quell the rumor here rather than just notifying you privately. Creating an account gives me the ability to correct anyone here who may have been convinced by your speculation. Of course I have long been aware of the Keelynet archives. I wrote those messages now didn't I? You can email Gerald (I'm sure you can figure out how to do that) and I'll confirm.

I have been busy reading up on 'John Titor' now. My impression is that he is a young guy, probably college age. I suspect he created the time traveller hoax to create a soapbox to express his philosophical and political peeves. John's time travel discussions seem to be a bit shallow. I doubt he really understands the principles that he is obviously parroting, probably having stumbled upon them on the net. Too bad I didn't know about this Titor fellow 'til now, I would have fried him.

I had been involved in the study of gravity and 'unorthodox' science for about 25 years. I have corresponded with innumerable people on the subject over the years even since before the www, and would not be surprised that some of my style has gotten noticed by someone.

With respect to terminology, I try to use conventionally accepted jargon when possible but often there is no adequate word to express a particular concept. So I often make up phrases on the fly. I honestly can't tell you whether I coined those terms you find so interesting or simply borrowed them unconsciously from a variety of sources. I will say that I speak from my own understanding. I do not need to make up stories or feel the need to gain attention for myself.

It was probably about 1999 that I gave up on caring about alternative science. That is likely about the timeframe when you will not see much further public discussion from me about the 'unusual'. I think that enough seeds have been planted that certain ideas have taken root in the culture now and it is no longer necessary for me to push.

If you prefer to believe that I am Titor then I don't really care to beg to convince you otherwise. But I am a bit insulted that this amateur is being given credit for my work.

Gerald has since added a picture to his forum profile and has discussed other topics. It is clear he has nothing to hide, a characteristic Titor Foundation members do not share. Gerald most likely has nothing do do with John Titor or the John Titor Foundation, except that they may have studied similar material concerning black-holes. The terms 'gravity lock' and 'local gravity' have been found to be black-hole related terms. Although only two sources on the internet have been found with these terms relating to the topic of time-travel, black-holes are not far from the subject. We apologize to Gerald for any inconvenience, he doesn't appear to be bothered much by the speculation.

Friday, February 13, 2009


My blog was mentioned on 'Coast to Coast AM with George Noory' on the 12th by a caller, it was also mentioned on the 13th by a caller. The show contacted me, maybe one day I will be on the show, I wouldn't mind a debate against any pro-Titor fan, based on the facts.

I honestly wish to seek and destroy hoaxes that were made by people with less than good intentions, so if anything comes of this, I will continue to investigate hoaxes no matter what the feedback is. Most money-scheme hoaxes have yet to be touched by Mythbusters with a 10 foot pole, so there's plenty to work with, if you would like to suggest a hoax for me, send me an email, thanks.

Hopefully this report will help lead someone in actually finding the true identity of Titor. I am fully willing to retract the mistakes made in this report, please give me a few days to do this.

The following are the 88 names that may or may not be fake. The authors behind John Titor likely used some of these names to reply to their own posts on the “I am from 2036” original thread on Art Bell’s Post to Post ( from January 27th 2001 to April 4th 2001. The authors behind John Titor likely registered other accounts making themselves appear more believable or more intelligent. When your choosing the questions to ask yourself it's a bit easier to answer them.

[“Their Name” John-Titor] (# of Google Matches)

The closer you look at these names, the more they look like they were quickly made up. If they were the names or pseudonyms of real people they would have likely talked about Titor somewhere else on the net using their posting name whether they believed in the hoax or not due to it’s widespread fame. According to google they all vanished when Titor vanished.

It's possible a few of these names could be real people, but that would only be possible if they never posted about Titor under that name ever again. NOTE: I have extensively searched every single page match with these names and all names on this report leading to this discovery. It was a tedious and time consuming process, if you wish to verify these finding for yourself feel free to. Remember, google search results are subject to change. With the higher suspect names I did more extensive google searches than simply “Their Name” and John-Titor, I searched Their-Name and Titor, and various other combinations.

DISCLAIMER: I realize some of my evidence is conjecture, but it is backed up by a great number of facts and evidence never before pieced together. If I am incorrect in any of my facts or logic, detailed evidence and facts will be needed before any retractions are made. If anything in this report is incorrect and it is proven I am fully willing to make the needed corrections. Such mistakes could be a few 'fake' names being real names.

I don’t doubt a handful of the names above could be real people that care so little about the John Titor story that they never bothered to post their opinions of it after the fact. Due to it’s fame it is unlikely this many names never discussed Titor a single time, not even on their personal network page. I still claim the majority as being false Titor plants, if anyone can prove otherwise I am welcome to this proof. I am willing to accept that the fake name list could be as little as 50 names, this is still major proof that the authors behind John Titor manipulated the conversation in their favor. It could have been more than 88 maybe it was less but if it was exactly 88 it probably represented the MPH needed for the DeLorean to time-travel in ‘Back to the Future’.

This is how the Titor hoaxer(s) gained so much attention in so little time. John Titor registered up to 70 fake identities on the Art Bell 'Post to Post' forum and asked himself question after question. Titor probably carried on more conversations with himself than anyone else in the thread. Thanks to this it is easy to eliminate the above 88 names from being of any importance, this allowed me to focus on the few names left.

The Titor character wrote in a certain style, but Titor's numerous false identities wrote in different styles. One of those writing styles may be the style of the true identity behind Titor. For those that say 'the writing styles are radically different, how could he have pulled that off?'. , it's called role-playing. With the vast amount of fake posts coming from one source it does tend to support there being more than 1 hoaxer involved, but it would not be impossible to accomplish alone.


[1] "Keith Rowland" (6) *** ARTBELL.COM WEBMASTER
[2] "Mary Rowland" (82) *** POST TO POST MODERATOR
[3] "Karen Day" (1) *** POST TO POST MODERATOR

They were the webmaster & admins of Art Bell’s old website & forums. They likely didn’t care about the hoax either way but Mary did edit some of the posts probably due to vulgarities, the posting of un-allowed links or personal info.

[4] "Lola Montez" (9) *** THREAD POSTER
[5] "Jim Houlahan" (9) *** THREAD POSTER
[6] "Tom Dehn" (1) *** THREAD POSTER
[7] "Lee Heggy" (9) *** THREAD POSTER

These names posted on the original “I am from 2036”, they are real people confirmed to not be John Titor, and are apparently not interested enough to post about him.

The higher the google matches the more likely they are real people independent from Team-Titor, but I examined every single google search and with some names it’s the opposite. The placement of these names is not in any particular numerical order. I will begin with number one.

[1] “Daniel Blatecky” (1) *** NON-SUSPECT
AKA Creedo299 from (TTI), Another name deleted, omitted, removed from the official “I am from 2036” copy on ANOMALIES.NET, if ANOMALIES.NET was interested in the truth, why would they delete Daniel from the archive? Probably because they have a personal vendetta against him, Daniel A.K.A. Creedo299 was a frequent poster at (TTI), he posted nonsensical threads and replies on a constant basis, perhaps he somehow irritated Team-Titor so much they wanted to eliminate his existence in the Titor saga, such was a mistake, it only points towards the foul-play of ANOMALIES.NET and gives more proof to it being the haven of Team-Titor. I was able to email Daniel and he seems to have forgotten ever posting on the original Titor thread, it was almost 8 years ago. Even though he claims to have forgotten I believe he is not a member of Team-Titor based on the evidence. As an outcast of ANOMALIES & TTI: If he were a former member of Team-Titor he would have had a desire to turn them in. He claims to not care that his name was removed from the official “I am from 2036” thread. Daniel Blatecky was quick to respond to an email I sent him, he was unable to provide any information but his willingness to email back is proof he is open and a very unlikely candidate for Team-Titor.

[2] "James Boley" (10) *** NON-SUSPECT
[3] "Randy Empey" (8) *** NON-SUSPECT
[4] "Albert Cattoir" (7) *** NON-SUSPECT
[5] "Craig Cuthbert" (137) *** NON-SUSPECT

These 4 are regular posters, I’m not convinced they even exist. They are just here out of the small chance that they do exist, they are least suspect.

[6] "Kimberly Nease" (4) *** NON-SUSPECT
[7] "Mike Kolesnik" (22) *** NON-SUSPECT

“Hey!! Mike, Kimberly, John already confessed!” --- Paul Collins
Not convinced these two exist but if they did they would be friends of Paul Collins.

[8] "Luis Gonzalez" (51) *** NON-SUSPECT
Email no longer works,, Likely a typical Art Bell listener.

[9] "Jeanette Foresta" (29) *** NON-SUSPECT
Likely a typical Art Bell listener just selling a used copy of Titor’s book on amazon.

[10] “Tom Young” (8) *** NON-SUSPECT
Tom Young has very few matches to Titor, but he does appear to be a real person because he has posted 352 times on the forum registered on Jan 14th 2004. He even has a photography website: Because he is willing to post his professional photos including some possibly personal I seriously doubt he has anything to hide this eliminates him from being a suspect of Team-Titor.

[11] “Steven Gibbs” (247) *** NON-SUSPECT
Most notably a guest on Coast to Coast AM.
Quite frankly after hearing Gibbs on “Coast to Coast AM” various times, if not every time, he does not sound smart enough to be behind the words of John Titor. He peddles electric boxes (HDR) ‘Hyper-dimensional Resonator’ units as time machines but isn’t well versed enough to be a convincing Titor, he may have played a part but I doubt it. After the Titor story was broadcast on “Coast to Coast AM” Gibbs claimed he met Titor but he claims a lot of things. The only connection I see Gibbs playing in the Titor saga is through ANOMALIES.NET, the #2 registered member at the forums there is Adam. He obtained an HDR, but this is not out of the ordinary since many time travel enthusiasts register there. If Adam somehow knew Gibbs personally that would make a big difference but Adam is hard to get a hold of and I doubt he knows Gibbs personally.

[12] "John Tooker" (55) *** NON-SUSPECT
John Tooker is a person connected with time travel outside of the John Titor story. He helped Steven Gibbs build HDR units in the 80’s. Could John Tooker be John Titor? The names are similar. This is the real connection that ties Gibbs’ HDR with ANOMALIES.NET. After researching John Tooker for a while it’s obvious that he is not John Titor. He does consider himself a time traveler, but in connection with The Montauk Project. His only reply to Titor starts with this, “You're a traveller too? Have you ever interacted with any of the pre 1983 staff, at Montauk? If so, you may have met me”. Tooker clearly is not sane, but few HDR users are. He posts his email address and personal home address in Canada constantly on his websites which are usually full of time travel website links and stories about him being a, “Montauk Boy”. His open-ness, is the exact opposite behavior a member of Team-Titor would display.

[13] "Javier Cortez" (356) *** NON-SUSPECT
A.K.A. TimeTravelActivist, Javier has been anti-Titor since his first reply to Titor. He has recently been accused of being John Titor by an anonymous coward claiming to be an expert in this or that. Javier has been banned from ANOMALIES.NET and other sites. He doesn’t seem to get along with the admins, a sure sign that he is not Titor. If Team-Titor are anything they are admins, they are the type to infiltrate forums not become outcasts. They are power hungry yet don’t try to draw attention to themselves. He re-signed up to various forums after he was accused of being Titor, this is something Team-Titor would not do, and if they would they would have done it anonymously. Since Javier is the exact opposite of these things I seriously doubt he is part of Team-Titor.

ANOMALIES.NET mod, holds the most google matches to Titor second to Pamela. Is obviously interested in Titor and talks about him a lot, this by itself is not a reason to suspect him. Posts photos of himself, is very candid and open, these are reasons which make him very unlikely to be a member of Team-Titor unless he’s Titor’s P.R. man. He is more open than most and replied to my questions on this thread:

Rick said, "I've never met either Pam or Darby in person, nor Art Bell, Titor wouldn't LET me meet with him (I tried, and was even going to film the 'departure' at my expense and keep the location a secret... he wouldn't go for it... because it was a hoax!)"

ANOMALIES.NET mod, TTI mod, chief John Titor expert. Darby is also very candid and open, I emailed him for this investigation and he quickly responded. I doubt anyone this open would be working for Team-Titor, but he does seem to know more than he admits. Perhaps he has been contacted by Team-Titor and has made an agreement with them after finding out who they are, it is unknown. Darby has been on ‘Coast to Coast AM’ as an expert on John Titor, he has yet to release any breaking information that we don’t already know on the subject. He was able to connect Larry Haber with Disney and Celebration Florida, and basically proved he is the official lawyer of Team-Titor, or The John Titor Foundation. I will have to ask him about his facts on the subject in greater detail.
[4] "Phil Fiord" (10) *** NON-SUSPECT Chief Administrator of ANOMALIES.NET. Phil being a vet of Titor lore has posted so few times about Titor, less than a couple times in 8 years. You seem to post random things while avoiding to post your opinion on the subject. The strangest connection to Phil and Titor is through Pamela. Phil Fiord met Pamela at the Ohio airport. Pamela showed Phil the letter with the IBM logo at the airport, Pamela briefly mentioned it once. Phil admitted this event did take place, he didn't say anything about the logo other than that he saw it.

[5] “Olav Phillips” (348) *** NON-SUSPECT
Olav is the founder and creator of ANOMALIES.NET, since all signs on my Titor investigation have led to ANOMALIES.NET I have to consider Olav a high ranking suspect if not the highest ranking suspect. He has been very open considering the fact that he has been on ‘Coast to Coast AM’. Olav is the only major suspect that did not originally post on the original “I am from 2036” thread.
[6] "Ernie Vega" (84) *** NON-SUSPECT
ANOMALIES.NET mod, Email no longer works,, New York. He has only posted 15 times since 2001. His most recent post was on December 19th 2004 and involved an HDR on ebay, Ernie said, “This device is actually quite dangerous. … I bought one a while back”. Ernie Vega has not posted directly about John Titor since the original 2001 thread, this alone is very suspect. He likely knows something about John Titor having replied directly with him. Ye has yet to even have a comment on the subject, his lack of willing to share and lack of posts on the subject makes him a big Team-Titor suspect. My nickname for Ernie is Out-Of-Body-Ernie because he claims he had an out of body experience with his Hyperdimensional Resonator unit.
[7] "Paul Collins" (7) (134) *** NON-SUSPECT
“Hey!! Mike, Kimberly, John already confessed!” --- Paul Collins
What did John confess? This post remains a mystery, it almost sounds like a friend of Paul Collins admitted to being John Titor. Too many matches to be a fake person, not sure but this Paul Collins might be "Paul David Collins" brother of "Phillip Darrell Collins" occult book authors. Interesting possibility, these two brothers would make good suspects of being "John Titor". But there is not enough proof to continue to believe this is the case. The name is too common and the trail is too cold for this character.
[8] "Pamela" (9,140) *** NON-SUSPECT
The most public character of the Titor saga yet the most private character at the same time. Claims to have obtained a physical letter from John Titor himself. This claim should be considered false until proven. The fact that Pamela shared with everyone that this letter had an IBM logo in it, and that it was supposed to prove to Pamela that John Titor was a time-traveler is a good indication that Pamela is likely an innocent pawn of Team-Titor. Pamela is probably not a member of Team-Titor. A few of the ANOMALIES admins have seen a photo of her and she admitted to having met Phil Fiord in person at the Ohio Airport. John Titor sent Pamela special privileged information via private emails, John Titor sent her a 'secret song' which the publisher's of the John Titor book "John Titor: A Time Traveler's Tale" (The John Titor Foundation LLC.) were not able to confirm to Pamela what the secret song was. In another email John Titor promised Pamela he would send her his farewell time-travel video. Because Pamela has so much information she is not willing to share, she would normally be a suspect but she is a private person and I will take it in faith that she just wants to be left alone. I attempted to contact Pamela various times during this investigation but she was unwilling or unable to reply to any forum posts or emails. My nickname for Pamela is, Pamela-The-Believer. Since she claimed to believe in JT even after a logo from an old computer was sent to her as 'proof'. The only way she could be guilty is if she was roleplaying the whole time. Until suspicious information on Pamela is uncovered I will keep her off the suspect list.

[5] "Oliver Williams" (1,170) --- OWNER OF JOHNTITOR.COM
[6] "Larry Haber" (442) --- JT FOUNDATION LAWYER
[3] “Raul Burriel” (4) *** SUSPECT
Owner of (TTI), According to Darby he wants $25,000.00 for the site. Titor first posted at the TTI. Raul may or may not know the IP of Titor. Titor’s IP information is long worthless by now, if it ever was worth anything, this could not track Titor to any specific point other than his provider and general area at the time. The fact that he wants so much money for a site that I personally believe is worth 200 bucks, is very suspicious alone. Note: John Titor's IP was traced back to Celebration Florida. Raul also built at least one of the official Celebration Florida websites, I am not sure which one, maybe he built all of them. These are the official Celebration Florida websites:,, and,
[1] "Denny Unger" (4) *** SUSPECT
A guy going by the name of 'Steven' posted a time travel video on the same Art Bell and the same time John Titor posted his 'I am from 2036' thread. Unless I'm convinced by evidence I will continue to keep the opinion that this video was a rough draft or failed, rejected version of the John Titor video that Titor promised. According to Spiderj on ATS in this thread: Denny Unger is the Steven that created the video. Denny is a professional graphic artist. I emailed him, no response yet. Denny owns a 2d RPG graphic business and is a professional 2d artist, he could crank out all of the John Titor artwork easily based on his record. He is from Canada. His RPG business is here: Spiderj also noted out that he worked for Skybooksusa as seen here: Denny did the cover art for "Synchronicity & the Seventh Seal" and "Ong's Hat: The Beginning". To be an artist on those alone is not criminal, but the Ong's Hat story has commonly been called a hoax. Skybooksusa is owned by Peter Moon aka Vince Barbarick, of the famed The Montauk Project books, I have evidence to argue that these books are part of a hoax as well.
[3] "Karl Simanonok" (329) *** SUSPECT
Owner of John Titor supporter, he says on his site, "You will hear people who haven't researched Titor's story well claim it to be a hoax, but to this day it remains internally consistent and 'undebunked'." The John Titor hoax has long been debunked Mr. Simanonok. I always found it odd that he never posted his name on the site, and he has never been on C2CAM. According to Darby, "He received his BS at Florida State, MS at Florida State and PhD at UC Davis". - Darby. This alone tells me he could have been in Florida during 2001.

[2] "Mel Reckling" (106) *** SUSPECT
Mel Reckling has not posted about John Titor since 2001 except one other time. In 2008 he posted a John Titor joke on a porche forum. This was the joke, “My name is John Titor I am a time traveller from the year 2034 who comes back to get parts for my 914 since all parts are NLA in our time. Gas too since it is $4,000 a gallon now”. It’s more than strange that someone living near Pamela wouldn’t have even mentioned John Titor’s name on the net within a space of 7 years. Apparently Titor spent his dough on a porche? This suspect remains a possible member of Team-Titor. He either knows something, or he doesn’t care about discussing Titor in any way shape or form, yet he makes a joke about it on a non-related forum? Very suspicious.

Interesting that he claims to be from ‘North Royalton, Ohio’, Pamela is from Ohio.
This is likely the same Mel that is associated with the ‘Cleveland Ufology Project’. My nickname for Mel is Mel-The-Joker.
Note: John Titor's first communication in a fax sent to Art Bell on July 29th 1998, in the fax John Titor said, "Time travel was invented in 2034". I find it interesting that Mel Reckling used the rarely mentioned Titor date 2034 instead of the commonly known 2036. I also believe when the John Titor authors claimed John was "born in 1998", they were admitting the John Titor character was created in 1998, this was in fact the date of his first communication.

[4] "Oliver Williams" (1,170) *** SUSPECT
Owns the most popular John Titor website, this alone doesn't make him guilty. What makes him guilty is his advertizement for the official John Titor Foundation cafe-press site that sells official John Titor Foundation mugs, t-shirts and bumper stickers. Oliver makes no money from clicks to this store, he either made a deal with the John Titor foundation or is best friends with them, or he is the official John Titor Foundation webmaster. My nickname for Oliver is For-Sale-Oliver. Since he's the number one expert on JT merchandise.
[5] "Larry Haber" (442) *** SUSPECT
Admits to being the lawyer for John Titor's mother. He is the official lawyer for the John Titor Foundation LLC. No more needs to be said about this guy, no information is going to come out of him because it's his job to keep his client's identity a secret. I don't need a nickname for him even he will admit he's Larry-The-Lawyer of John Titor.


Based on the whole of this document, and the facts therein, this is a summary of my theory.

What about the book ‘John Titor A Time Traveler’s Tale’ released by the ‘John Titor Foundation LLC.’? The book is out of print and has been for a few years.

Team-Titor had a goal, their purpose was organized, the goal was to promote and virally advertise a book, a movie, a website or all of these.

These individuals have never been under the spotlight as major suspects of Team-Titor, until now no clear connections have ever been made between them and John Titor. Are these even their real names? I have not and probably will not release any detailed information, such as a home address or phone number. Releasing private information is not my goal and is not necessary in the process of debunking the John Titor story. I have linked the story with online individuals, it is up to you to do the rest.

It’s about time John Titor fans and skeptics alike start asking them questions. If I ask them questions over and over little will change. If many of you ask them questions, evidence is more likely to turn up. One of them is bound to squeal either on accident or on purpose, the money for this hoax probably stopped rolling in a good while ago. With every passing year another Titor prediction is easily debunked. The 2.5% difference between his and our timeline is not enough to save him. Perhaps Team-Titor wants their secret to be their legacy. I’m sure it would be fun knowing you were a part of a modern day urban legend. This is understandable, but it’s equally understandable for them to be myth-busted.

I will help anyone that wants to help me find more proof on the subject or any hoax for that matter. If you aren’t interested in helping me find more evidence, then you can’t be very interested in wanting to know. To those who prove the identity of Titor, in advance I say great job!

People have said the John Titor hoax is entertainment, some say it's harmless, some say, 'why would you even want to find the identity of the time traveler leave him alone'. To those people I say, first of all he was not a time traveler he was a nerdy internet hoaxer, second, when he perpetrated this hoax on the worldwide web, at that very second he welcomed anyone to come find his true identity. The guy is not nostradamus, he is not Jesus, he is a nerdy internet hoaxer that deserves to be found out, exposed so people can stop looking at him as if he knew anything about the future, he knew nothing a regular listener to Coast to Coas AM didn't already know, mad cow, and CERN had already been discussed on the show prior to 1999. Dr. Michio Kaku and I agree, he is fake.


FACT: Steven's 'Dimensional Traveler' video was released on the web on the same place John Titor posted and chronologically very close to the same time-frame.

FACT: Out of the 112 posters on the original ‘I am from 2036’ thread, 104 of them have never posted using their names ever since. These 104 stopped posting when John Titor stopped posting. (A number of these are suspected of having been created by the authors of John Titor for the purpose of manipulating and hyping the conversation).

FACT: The remaining 8 have posted since 2001: Ernie Vega, Phil Fiord, Rick Donaldson, Darby, Pamela, Tom Young, Javier Cortez, Daniel Blatecky.

FACT: As early as April 1st 2001 according to ANOMALIES.NET obtained 3 other photos from time traveler ‘Steven’. ANOMALIES.NET was the first website to host these images and video, but they are not the originators of it, a guy named Steven is. (I am not convinced Steven is not one of the JT hoaxers. Based on the date, the JT-like laser pointer and JT-like time machine box in the ‘Steven - A dimensional traveler?’. It is not a stretch to see this is the farewell video John Titor promised).
FACT: Larry Haber is the official lawyer for The John Titor Foundation. He also claims to be the lawyer for John Titor's mother.
FACT: Oliver Williams helps The John Titor Foundation sell official John Titor Foundation cafe-press merchandise on his website.
