Bob Thiel is a fundamentalist conspiracy theorist. He is probably most famous for writing books accusing various politicians of ushering in the End Times, and apparently tries to stay a bit ahead of the curve – for instance, his book Hillary Clinton, Prophecy, and the Destruction of the United States appeared in February 2016, and discussed topics like “Is Hillary Clinton the Antichrist?” and “20 Reasons Why Hillary Clinton Is Apocalyptic.” In particular, the book endeavored to investigate (his own deranged mind to establish) Clinton’s “possible connections to freemasonry and shamanism” and why she is “specifically causing the people of the United States to err further away from biblical morality, which will lead to destruction.” The book was in many ways a sequel to Barack Obama, Prophecy, and the Destruction of the United States (you will be excused for suspecting extensive use of the find-replace function in Word). In 2017 he followed up with Donald Trump and America’s Apocalypse: Is Donald Trump Fulfilling Biblical, Islamic, Catholic, Buddhist, and other America-Related Prophecies? Note the “America-Related” part.
His earlier books include 2012 and the rise of the secret sect, which describes for instance how a “multi-national committee of the United Nations is calling for the elimination of the U.S. dollar as the world’s reserve currency – a position held for over 60 years. This would be disastrous for the U.S as it produces a global currency and opens the door for the Antichrist;” yes, dollars are blessed protective tokens keeping the Antichrist at bay, so of course the UN is working hard to undermine the currency – you really shouldn’t have asked. At the time Thiel styled himself as “one of the world’s preeminent authorities on the events likely to occur in 2012 and beyond,” and the book ostensibly examines prophecies of the Mayans, and I Ching, Catholic, Hopi, New Age, Talmud, Islam, Buddhist, and Hindu religions before formulating its own. Apparently Thiel thought the Roland Emmerich 2012 movie was some kind of documentary: “When I heard that a 2012 prophecy movie was being developed at Sony, I was immediately interested in what would be included. When I knew that the focus of the film would be on the Mayan prophecy, I was inspired to write a book on the things that a two-hour movie couldn’t possibly include.” The confusion sort of explains a great many things.
Other books include The Last Pope: Do Biblical and Catholic Prophecies Point to Pope Francis I? and Fatima Shock!: The Real Truth About Fatima and Future Apparitions, as well as Proof Jesus Is The Messiah: Biblical, Prophetic, and Historical Facts, which promises to explain for instance to explain “why don’t most Jews accept Jesus.”
Diagnosis: Thoroughly confused, and responding to confusion the best way he can: with anger. Probably harmless.
