#1159: Van Smith

Van Smith is a computer benchmarking expert, computer industry analyst and physicist who is well known enough to readers of various batshit insane fundie conspiracy sites. Smith’s obsession is the Georgia Guidestones, and he is pretty much convinced that the Guidestones express totalitarian messages and intentionally foreshadow the arrival of the Islamic Mahdi, i.e. the Antichrist. Because he is a loon, he also believes the Guidestons are linked through encoded numerological information to the Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world. The Burj Khalifa is of course, in Smith’s mind, a new Tower of Babel.. His “research” on these matters is discussed here. “I'm not a conspiracy lunatic who spends all my time researching Freemasonry and things like that,” said Smith, but added that “this evidence is extremely real, and it's disturbing.”

Diagnosis: Conspiracy lunatic who seems to spend far, far too much time researching Fremasonry and things like that. (This one was really too easy.)

  1. More potential loons

    Nick Sorrentino (apparently, Occupy Wall Street is crony capitalism despite being against the limitless influence of corporate money in politics, while Citizens United, which lobby's for completely limitless influence of corporate money in the election process of leaders at every level, is not crony capitalism, reality seems to work in reverse for this guy. Also, he's a gold bug and passes along memes and viral e-mails as factual evidence without doing proper research)

    Jill Stanek (Claims that contraception leads to Pedophilia and that abortion doctors should be thrown in jail)

    Porter Stansbury (Not sure if I named him already, but this guy is a fraudster that writes for the usual Wingnut news sources like WorldNetDaily and Newsmax)
