What's interesting is how much details he puts into his answers, its really quite elaborate. "Too much time on his hands" is an understatement.
In anycase, I can disprove him through simple economics; he goes on and on about how centralized banking and commerce has been destroyed and all goods are traded at the local level. Yet, he also says they regularly use paper money, like the kind we use today, and credit cards.
Without a centralized bank (not just here, but also in Europe with the Euro becoming one of the biggest competetors to the dollar's value), assuming a nuclear attack did destroy all these major cities, poof, paper money wouldn't be worth, well, the paper it's printed on. The thought of credit cards after WWIII seems even more silly.
Oh, I don't doubt it's a hoax, but it is a very detailed one, isn't it?
I liked the comments about WWIII wiping out 3 billion people but that technological, genetic, and envrionmental advances would not be slowed down, leading to the advent of time travel. That makes sense, of course, because the thinkers who study that stuff don't live in the cities that were destroyed on "N Day," do they?
The comment about the high-speed trains particularly humored me. We don't have large cities anymore, and we're mostly agrarian now, but we went ahead and built jet trains to connect Omaha and Walla Walla.
