What is Web Bot?

Web Bot, or the Web Bot Project, refers to an Internet bot software program that is claimed to be able to predict future events by tracking keywords and phrases entered on the Internet. It was created in 1997, originally to predict stock market trends. The creator of the Web Bot Project - Clif High, along with his associate George Ure, who call themselves "The Time Monks", keep the technology and algorithms largely secret and sell the predictions via the website halfpasthuman.com.

How does the Web Bot make predictions?

High and Ure say that the Web Bot works by using a form of the Wisdom of Crowds, with spiders that search the internet for about 300,000 keywords with emotional context and record the preceding and following words to create a "snapshot." The technology is claimed to be able to examine the collective unconscious and be able to predict catastrophic events 60 to 90 days in advance.

Does Web Bot make accurate predictions?

The Web Bot is claimed to have predicted several events prior to them occurring, most notably the September 11 attacks and the 2003 Northeastern United States blackout. However, many believe the predictions are vague and, at best, pseudoscientific.

  • September 11 attacks - In June 2001 Web Bot predicted that a catastrophic event would occur within the next 60–90 days.
  • American Airlines Flight 587
  • Space Shuttle Columbia disaster - In January of 2003 the web bots were going on and on about a "maritime disaster"
  • Northeast Blackout of 2003 -
  • 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake
  • Hurricane Katrina and its devastation
  • Dick Cheney hunting incident

Does Web Bot make bad predictions?

  • A massive earthquake in Vancouver and the Pacific Northwest was predicted to occur on 12 December 2008.
  • A "global coastal event " in mid-2009, which Ure and High said that they recommended people to stay away from coastal areas.
  • A complete collapse of the US dollar beginning in 2009.
  • The US dollar completely collapses, or Israel bombs Iran. In reaction to this crisis, administration of U.S. President Barack Obama would have been thrown into major chaos ten days later.

What are some future Web Bot predictions?

  • July 8th, 2010 - The web bot predicts a major terrorist attack
  • November 11th, 2010 - The web bot warns of a big tipping point possibly World War III
  • December 14th, 2010 - The web bot predicts the first missile launch of World War III
  • Major catastrophe in 2012 - The Web Bot has gained most of its notoriety for contributing to the 2012 phenomenon by predicting that a cataclysm will devastate the planet in the year 2012, possibly a reversing of Earth's magnetic poles or a small series of nuclear attacks leading up to a major attack during the year. The prediction does not necessarily call for a complete end of the world.

The following come from the Web Bot Project Blogspot report on a radio interview with High and Ure:

  • No warfare between Israel and Iran, at least not until November.
  • Six very large earthquakes are yet to come during the rest of 2010.
  • A major tipping point will occur between November 8th – 11th, 2010, followed by a 2-3 month release period. This tipping point appears to be US-centric, and could be a dramatic world-changing event like 9-11 that will have rippling after-effects. The collapse of the dollar might occur in November.
  • From July 8th, 2010 onward, civil unrest will take place, possibly driven by food prices skyrocketing, and the devaluation of the dollar.
  • No exact information on the December 14th missile launch (beginning of World War III) has been confirmed, but the predictions show it may happen.
  • A second depression, triggered by mass layoffs, bankruptcies, and the popping of the "derivatives bubble," will see people moving out of cities.
  • After March 2011, the revolution wave will settle down into a period of reformation.
  • A "data gap" has been found between early 2012 running through May 2013. One explanation is that "our civilization gets knocked back to a pre-electronic state," such as brought about by devastating solar activity .
  • A new benign form of capitalism will emerge during 2017-2020.

Any truth to the Web Bot predictions and Prophecy?

The History Channel has discussed Web Bot in its special Doomsday 2012 and on other shows like Nostradamus Effect which feature predictions about the end of the world. A Globe and Mail journalist noted that "What interests me more than the bot's accuracy (of which I'm skeptical), is the relentless negativity of its projections. According to the bot, the future is always bleak and steadily worsening."

Tom Chivers in the Daily Telegraph notes three criticisms of the project: "the internet might plausibly reveal group knowledge about the stock market or, conceivably, terror attacks [but] it would be no more capable of predicting a natural disaster than would a Google search, ... the predictions are so vague as to be meaningless, [and] the prophecies become self-distorting."

Claimed hits

The Web Bot is claimed to have predicted several events prior to them occurring, most notably the September 11 attacks and the 2003 Northeastern United States blackout. However, many believe the predictions are vague and, at best, pseudoscientific.

  • American Airlines Flight 587
  • Space Shuttle Columbia disaster - In January 2003 the web bots were going on and on about a "maritime disaster over the west". However, in that same year, the MV Mitali, a double decked ferry, was capsized by collision with a cargo vassel in Bangladesh, with at least 130 people confirmed dead on April 2003. The Fu Shan Hai, a Chinese bulk carrier, sank after a collision on 31 May 2003. The RMS Mülheim, a German cargo ship run ashore on on 22 March 2003. Nevertheless, the Web Bot owners zeroed in on a non-maritime event as their "prediction".
  • Northeast Blackout of 2003
  • 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake
  • Hurricane Katrina and its devastation
  • Dick Cheney hunting incident

Misses

  • A massive earthquake in Vancouver, Canada and the Pacific Northwest was predicted to occur on 12 December 2008.
  • From July 11, 2010 onward, civil unrest will take place, possibly driven by food prices skyrocketing, and the devaluation of the dollar.
  • A missile launch that would herald the start of World War III was predicted to happen on the 14th of December 2010 in an interview.
  • A complete collapse of the US dollar beginning in 2009.
  • The US dollar completely collapses, or Israel bombs Iran in 2011. In reaction to this crisis, administration of U.S. President Barack Obama will be thrown into major chaos ten days later.

  • Major catastrophe in 2012 - The Web Bot has gained most of its notoriety for contributing to the 2012 phenomenon by predicting that a cataclysm will devastate the planet in the year 2012, possibly a reversing of Earth's magnetic poles or a small series of nuclear attacks leading up to a major attack during the year.
