Keith Raniere, in a tone of prophesy, said to Toni Natalie, Barbara Bouchey, Christine Marie and probably others that he would father a child with them and that child would be an avatar that would change the world.
Evidently his prophesies are worthless since he did not have a child with any of the three. All three are unlikely to return.
He did have a son with Kristin Keeffe. But he never prophesied that. In fact he lied about the paternity of his son, claiming to followers that the boy was an orphan and he didn’t know who the father was. He said the mother died giving childbirth despite the fact that the mother [Keeffe] was living next door taking care of the child.
While many of Raniere’s followers may be more advanced than I and see things on a higher ethical level, to me the denial of his own son is reprehensible.
His promise to women he would have an avatar child a lie to capture the women.
Either that or he is simple fool whose prophesies are worthless.
With one of the women he evidently named in advance the future female avatar child, “Alyx.” “Alyx the Avatar” – that was never born.
From promising women he would having an avatar baby – to hounding them for years in lawsuits, trying to lure them to Mexico to have them tortured and ultimately getting them indicted on trumped up charges, one runs the gamut with Raniere.
This is not a lesson but a reminder: Ladies, if Raniere ever comes to you and tells you he had a prophesy that he will father your child and that child will be an avatar: Keep calm and run like hell!
[…] So, just to keep score, Keith went from saying he was a celibate monk who would never dream of having intercourse with a student like Kristin Snyder, to indicating that he was investigating Snyder’s apparent suicide because it didn’t make sense, and then settling on version number three which was that he was interested in tracking down Snyder, who he thought was still alive and had faked her own untimely death, because he wanted his child.

I’m not an expert in psychology, but this guy seems like a sociopath. He has no sense of shame, feeling guilt, or remorse for anything. These type of people really don’t care about what others think of them and so they keep on doing whatever they are doing. It is only when they are exposed for their shenanigans that they care what others think of them because it keeps them from doing what they want to be doing with other people. That’s why you see this continuous litigation at his behest behind the scenes attacking his now enemies who used to be former insiders like Natalie, Bouchey, Dones, etc,, who expose behavior that will threaten his (false) image and so negatively affect and eventually bring down what he wants to keep on doing. He’s got a good scam going. Can’t have anyone mess it up for him!
