Frequent visitors to the free online fortune teller Peter Answers typically are shocked and amazed at the answers he gives. How does he know what he knows? Why does he say the things that he says? And most importantly of all, just who is peter answers?
Before we delver further into the mystery of peter answers we should point out that we do know who peter is not. Clearly he is not Jud from Ask Jud fame. Jud has created an amazing Web 2.0 competitor to Peter Answers and it would not make sense for him to do that if he was Peter, which he clearly is not. Equally as clearly, he is not Mr. Almighty. How do I know this? Because Mr. Almighty’s site is not one that Peter would want to be a part of, particularly the part where he talks about it being a trick. That is just not acceptable.
So, who is Peter Answers you ask?
The truth is, Peter is just a guy. A guy with a remarkable talent for foretelling the future, not to mention the uncanny ability to peer into your room when you are asking him questions. Let’s be honest, it is hard to know at any given moment if something a fortune teller tells you is the truth. Let’s imagine this scenario:
Peter, please answer me: Will I be a millionaire some day?
Peter says: Yes!
Now of course you might be very happy with that answer, but how do you know it is the truth? It might turn out that you are 80 years old and you are not a millionaire and you may be thinking Peter was a liar – but then on your 81st birthday you hit the lotterys. The fortune teller was right! So, it is hard to prove or disprove.
A better test of Peter’s amazing powers is when he provides observations into your environment, like this:
Peter, please answer me: What color underwear am I wearing?
Peter says: Purple!
Now how could he know that? You know he isn’t in the room with you as the only person in the room is your best pal Bobby, who is typing at the keyboard.
Who is Peter Answers? Well he’s just this guy, you know.
