I was in MENSA at one point. I can guarantee that just cos someone's bright doesn't mean they're sensible, right, or nice. Take isaac Asimov. He was the international chairman, and he's a toilet-head.
And remember what the poet said – “in booty there is loot, and in loot booty.” Or sump’n like that.

Ok, I'm calling the first one.
Final vote went to moron with a 6/4 split and 3 abstaining (told you it was a tough one).

New entry added in OP (and copied here for you lazy bastards)
Current entry comes from user Verisimilitude from the RaptureReady forums (link):

The love of money really is the root of evil. I can't help but note that we are about to 'celebrate' the 38th anniversary of Roe v Wade. Being a person who believes in BIBLICAL numerology, I understand the number 40 to be a number of testing and purification or as a Messianic Jew once told me, a number of beautification. We are two years away from the 40th anniversary of legalized murder of innocent babies. Israel gave the Lord a hard time for 40 days and were punished with having to wander the desert for 40 years. The 2nd Temple was destroyed 40 years after Israel rejected Jesus. I wonder what may be in store for the U.S. 2 years from now.

I saw a show about prophecy, all kinds, not just Biblical, earlier this week. The show mentioned the Web Bot. I'd heard of it before but wasn't really familiar with it. On this show it was claimed that the Web Bot, using various information, can predict the future with 90% accuracy. Three months before 9/11, the narrator claimed that the Web Bot spit out a prediction about burning buildings and a catastrophic event within the next 2-3 months. Whether or not that's true, I don't know but the evidence points to this being true. What I find most interesting in the Web Bot is that it is being absolutely silent in regards to the period of time from 12/21/12 to May of 2013.

The signs that we are in the end of times are clear. Is the Web Bot a fulfillment of the prophecy "knowledge will increase"? Could the Web Bot be silent because that is the period of time when the rapture happens, the war of Gog and Magog and/or the beginning of the tribulation? I don't know. I surely can't say yes, but I can say it's a possibility. One thing is certain...the 40th anniversary of Roe v Wade falls in that silent period of time from 12/2012 to 5/2013.

There are just so many intriguing things going on in the world today, I can't help but look at all of them and then look up, they all point to Jesus' return.


I feel much less hesitant to say "complete moron" on this one. But that may be a side-effect of my years of debating fundies online.

Oh, and since it's been established that I like posting David Mitchell clips:

I have to abstain, I was pretty sure it was serious, but then I saw that dancing emoticon at the end.

On a side note though; the mentioned history channel special "Doomsday 2012" contains baffling amounts of idiots.

Can we vote on this one later?

I'm leaning moron on this one, merely because I know a handful of people who actually espouse stuff like this irl. Without looking at the context it's hard to tell, but he seems genuine and in line with others that I know.

For example, there was this guy who used to come into the store I worked at and claimed he was a numerology guy, and was always going on about how these numbers predicted this and that (it was especially funny because he'd ask me to add numbers and he usually came out wrong), and claimed he worked on HAARP to induce earthquakes. He also said that the rapture was only a year or two away (this was about two years ago).

I don't think this one's sarcasm. I don't actually know anybody that's into numerology, but there's plenty of dreck floating around about it. I call this one probably sincere yet completely misguided.

so we don't actually get an answer to whether they are a moron or a troll? shame.

i'm hoping this thread doesn't degrade into posting things that are actually true and that you just happen to disagree with...

Until you've actually met someone like that it's really hard to believe that these people exist, isn't it?
I mean how many ways are there to prove to yourself, even without accessing any kind of external resource, that the "web bot" could not possibly predict 90% of current events. It's like they have no filter whatsoever that's connected to reality.

usually if you keep reading the thread, or check their post history, you can get context that makes it clear which one they are. note: this doesn't apply to exceptionally dedicated trolls.

i do like the premise of this thread, though.
