Gone Gone Gone are the claims that he spoke at age 1, was the East Coast judo champion at age 11, and is one of the top three problem solvers in the world.
Keith Raniere has revamped his website: http://www.keithraniere.com/.
In it, he still, of course, proclaims some amazing accomplishments:
- FOUNDED MORE THAN 30 INTERNATIONAL COMPANIES, ENDEAVORS & MOVEMENTS
- CREATED TOOLS FOR ETHICS, CRITICAL THINKING, NON-VIOLENCE & HUMAN POTENTIAL
- PUBLISHED 2 BOOKS & OVER 100 ARTICLES ON SCIENCE, ETHICS & PHILOSOPHY
- HOLDS 147 INTERNATIONAL PATENTS IN VARIED TECHNICAL FIELDS, INCLUDING 47 IN THE U.S.
But his old bio where he tells us about his amazing youth, athleticism, accumulation of great wealth by age 30, and his IQ listing in the Guinness Book of World Records are out.
Keith gives us little info. For example, on the new website, he does not say if any of the patents are in actual use anywhere. [He did not get a patent for Rational Inquiry in the USA but he still lists it as patent pending].
