Keith Raniere was born on August 26, 1960.
According to his bio, www.keithraniere.com, “Keith Raniere entered Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) at age sixteen.”
He was 16 between Aug. 26 1976 and Aug. 25 1977.
How did he start college at 16, without graduating high school until he was almost 18?
In 2003, in an affidavit in the Rick Ross lawsuit, Keith said he started college just after he turned 17.
“I entered RPI just after my 17th birthday and started to take high level (PhD) graduate
courses in Mathematics. These courses are normally reserved for advanced graduate school students. To my knowledge, I was the first 17 year old to take advanced 600 level mathematics courses in RPI’s then 153 year history.”
He conflated this a notch on his website www.keithraniere.com:
“From his first semester onward, he began taking Ph.D. level mathematics courses, ultimately taking most of the graduate-level physics and mathematics courses available at the time. Upon graduating, he became RPI’s first triple major, earning degrees in mathematics, biology and physics, with minors in philosophy and psychology, and an expertise in computer science.”
So Keith was 16, or 17, when he started college. He was almost 18 when he graduated high school. He said he was the first 17 year old to take advanced 600 level mathematics courses in RPI’s history and the first triple major in RPI’s 153 year plus history.
On top of that, according to his website: By the age of one, he could construct full sentences and questions; he was able to read by the age of two.
He understood quantum physics by age 4.
He tied the state record for the 100 yard-dash.
His bio: He was an East Coast Judo Champion at age eleven.
By the age of twelve, he taught himself to play piano at the concert level.
He plays seven musical instruments and sings “high tenor” in musical productions.
“By the time I was 13, I had taken and passed the 9th, 10th and 11th grade NYS
Mathematics Regents exams and had taught myself the first two years of college Mathematics and several computer languages.”
“He taught himself high school mathematics in nineteen hours at the age of twelve; at age 13, he was proficient in third-year college mathematics and was a professional computer programmer.”
So let’s see: By age 13, he taught himself the first two years of college math or was it third year college math? – and he knew several computer languages and/or was he a professional computer programmer — in 1973?
Keith Raniere is noted as one of the top three liars in the world today.
