For discussions of everything that might be classed as ‘paranormal‘ - i.e. not currently accepted by our modern scientific paradigm.
If you've never heard of him, then you don't read the papers,--including the ones in the UK--or watch TV, or you've been in cave for the last 6 weeks. And I'm talking front pages, not sports sections... Try a Google news search, and you'll see 13,300 hits--or a regular Google search and you'll notice over 341,000 hits. And this is all in the past 5 weeks... To put that in perspective, I just did a news search on Graham Hancock and found 72 hits. A full web search got me 280,000 hits, so in 5 weeks Smarty has surpassed GH in total hits. Not bad. David Beckham got 4,800 news hits. How popular is he?
So now that we've settled that, if you don't know him, then you have gone out of your way to not know him, and only you can anwer why that is.
Try looking at the cover of Sports Illustrated Magazine from 3 weeks ago, or the articles about him in Time and Newsweek, and virtually every newspaper in the US, Australia, and other civilized places.
You can't blow this off. Right now Smarty is more well known in the US than 95% of the politicians, movie stars, and pro athletes and it's no accident. This was planned for a very, very long time and it's far from over. Stay tuned...
