What THEY don't want
you to know!
Sheeple wakers
…What I've done in this world is monumental. I have broken a code that nobody broke before. I have made more correct predictions about sports, celebrity deaths, and news stories than anyone has before. My work is truly important. I can't think of anyone in the history of The United States, literally, who has done something that's actually more important and empowering to the people. The knowledge that I have put out, which I have given to people for free for more than 4 years, and taught, you know, with non-stop dedication: this work has the power to do more for people than anything you can learn at any university, that you have to pay all this money for.
—Zachary Hubbard[1]

Zachary K. Hubbard (1983–) is an online conspiracy theorist, blogger, YouTuber, and, most of all, a crank. He is well known for his astounding accomplishment of discovering inventing new gematria, his brilliantly-conceived arguments for proving concluding for no logical reason whatsoever that the New World Order (NWO) is scripting everything in the entire world, from sporting events to celebrity deaths.

Hubbard is notorious for relying almost exclusively on non-falsifiable arguments, and the few that are falsifiable are always explained away whenever they are falsified. As a result, Hubbard has amassed a rather large fanbase of uninformed and possibly gullible audience members. Hubbard's dedicated fanbase which will attack any anti-gematria YouTube video or blog site at all costs.

Life Story[edit]

Hubbard was born in Portland, Oregon on July 21st, 1983 (pay attention to those details, it's really important). He was raised Lutheran by his parents, but he no longer identifies as religious. He is no longer a practicing Christian, but has made it clear he has never lost his faith in God. In fact, he has explained how he believes God has placed him on the Earth, on the exact day he was born on, in the exact location where he was born, and even given his name as gifts from God to send him a mission and expose the entire world as being rigged by means of gematria.[2] In other words, God allegedly used gematria to help Hubbard defeat gematria.

Zachary and "Censorship"[edit]

Hubbard has had too many YouTube channels to be counted on your fingers taken down for violating the YouTube Community Guidelines: more precisely, 14 of them since was founded.[3] (For this reason, skeptics are generally encouraged to archive his videos and use them at a later time to debunk his outlandish arguments, should his latest channel get taken down as well). Predictably, Hubbard blames YouTube for "censorship", no doubt believing that they are in on the NWO's big grand (and useless) agenda.

Hubbard has also thrown a big fit over being denied a Wikipedia page (Zach need not worry now: their distant cousin, RationalWiki, is happy to oblige). He claims to be deserving of a page for doing more for America than anyone in the history of the United States.[4] If what he really means by that is the ability to say such a big fib while keeping a straight face, well, he succeeded after all.

Hubbard's Argument Tactics[edit]

With rare exception, Hubbard relies extensively on arguments that are non-falsifiable, meaning that they are so bullet-proof that nobody can "disprove" any of them: quite convenient isn't it? He uses these arguments to "prove" the corruption behind the National Football League, Major League Baseball, National Basketball Association, and even (wait for it) golf[5].

Many of his arguments involve Hubbard re-visiting a sports game that has already happened, searching the enormous list of every possible statistic for matching numbers, listing them all together, and then pointing out how much of a "coincidence" such matching numbers could be: to the extent that the game being rigged by the NWO is the only possible, "rational" explanation and anyone who thinks otherwise is either mentally insane or otherwise willfully ignorant, basically an ex post facto prediction on Hubbard's part. This, of course, is the core of Hubbard's arguments, they are not falsifiable, so anyone who admits that they are not falsifiable and/or points to the obvious conclusion that the numbers are in fact coincidence opens the door for Hubbard and his followers to declare how humanity is just a bunch of blind sheep under the NWO's command.

In other cases, Hubbard may also ground his arguments from a team he has already picked, which, strangely enough, is almost always the statistical favorite to win.

According to Hubbard, the NWO can't seem to make up their mind as to which number they want to match-up either. In a single blog post, he will list up to a dozen or so numbers that match different statistics and "related" gematria numbers.[6] Remember, when arguing with gematria, always match up as many numbers as you possibly can: that way, no matter what happens, NWOdidit.

And remember, if you don't believe any of this, WAKE THE FUCK UP!![7]

Hubbard's Book[edit]

Hubbard has even written a book on this subject (despite claiming not to be in on this business for money)[8]. The front cover, which looks like it was done by a 3rd grader in Microsoft Paint, lists 4 "quotes" from anonymous (alleged) book critics. Curiously these testimonials were made before the book was finished. Selz appears to be the only source (at least for now) willing to carry the book, as banned it [9].

A Great Example[edit]

Listing all of the examples of Hubbard's outlandish arguments would be infeasible due to the vast number of them. Here is just one of them as a means of demonstrating just how bullet-proof (and of course, irrational) his arguments are.

Hubbard claims that, like all sports championships, the 2017 World Series was rigged by the NWO.[10] To "support" (we use this word VERY lightly) his argument, he points to a number of incredibly obviously planted absolutely coincidental uses of the number 52. Of course what really happened was Hubbard predicted the Astros in August of 2017, a time when they were easily the favorites to win, put together a bunch of 52s from random statistics, and then when his easy-ass prediction came true… PROOF OF THE 52, NWODIDIT!! (not to mention, why the NWO chose 52 of all possible numbers is left totally unexplained, but that doesn't matter, just go with it).

Here is a list of Hubbard's "clues":

  • New York Mets pitcher Matt Harvey pitched 52 days before the start of the World Series. Get it, Matt HARVEY, 52 days before the the World Series the HOUSTON Astros won?! The team from the city flooded by Hurricane HARVEY?! NWOdidit!
  • Game 7 of the World series ended with 52 pitchers from the final pitcher, Charlie Morton: because every foul ball and strike is by absolute design, right? (Hubbard actually argues here that one of the batters swung at a ball well outside the strike-zone. After all, that absolutely never happens by accident).
  • Every game in the World Series started at 5:20 PDT: Remember, ignore the 0: they never matter in gematria.
  • The gematria number for "FLOOD" = 52 (1=A, 2=B, etc in "FLOOD" = 52, and it flooded in Houston. COINCIDENCE?!)
  • There were 52 inches of rain in Houston: apparently the NWO can not only control the weather, and literally every minuscule detail of it, but is ardently obsessed with every detail of it lining up with coincidental sports statistics because… reasons.
  • The Astros won the World Series 52 years after debuting in the now-abandoned Astrodome (note: this was not the same year the Astros debuted as a team. That was 3 years prior at the short-lived Colt Stadium).
  • The World series took place during the "52 parallel".
  • Houston was flooded on 8/27/17. 8 + 27 + 17 = 52
  • And finally, we save the best for last: Dell Technologies founder Michael S. Dell was 52-years old at the time and was born in Houston.[11]

Of course, given the non-falsifiable nature of this argument, anyone who would, rationally, disagree with it would be immediately pointed and laughed at by Hubbard and his followers for purportedly ignoring dead obvious reality his theories.

Conveniently, however, Hubbard never seems to mention one very important detail: In game 7, the Astros scored 5 runs, and the Dodgers scored 1. In baseball, the visiting team's score is listed first, and the home team's score is listed second. Thus, the final score was actually 5-1. Isn't it funny that the NWO supposedly rigged the number of pitches thrown, as well the number of inches it rained in Houston (and all without anybody except Hubbard noticing), but yet they couldn't rig the final score of the game itself (or at least they forgot to do this, oopsie-daisy)? Surely if the NWO was obsessed for whatever reason with "52" that the final score would be 5-2, not 5-1. It is also possible that the NWO for whatever reason actually decided willfully not to set the final score at 5-2, guess that would have been too obvious.

To put icing on the cake, Hubbard, using his exact same gematria arguments, predicted the day before that the Astros would win Game 6 of the World Series.[12] Had this grand prophecy come true, the Astros would have clinched the series and Game 7 would have not been necessary. SPOILER: Hubbard was dead wrong. One could only logically conclude desperately argue that the NWO caught wind of Hubbard's prediction video, then scrambled to change up the script at the last minute to avoid being exposed. Of course this leads any rationally thinking person to ponder why, if the NWO fears getting caught by the likes of Hubbard, they would ever go out of their way to make meaningless numbers line-up in the first place. Furthermore, this single example is a major deathblow to gematria: Hubbard uploaded an entire 15 minute video revealing making up number patterns to explain how his grand prophecy would prove gematria once and for all (presumably shutting up his critics trolls once and for all). While it did not come true, Hubbard used the eventual game 7 victory to his advantage as well. This essentially proves beyond doubt that number patterns can be found in any sporting game, regardless of the outcome. Therefore, this is a fatal blow to the idea that any predictions, even if correct, have anything to do with gematria.

Zachary's Impressive List of Successful Predictions[edit]

Hubbard's Patreon page has a list of successful predictions to prove he knows everything boast about his nonsense gematria arguments [13]. Given the number of half truths and purposely omitted information, it is very likely to convince uninformed readers who, likely, have no interest in conducting any sort of fact checking, but are rather just gullible enough to believe in any conspiracy theory they can. For their sake, we gladly refute it here.


Strangely enough, he has no information on the 2014 World Series, despite claiming that he's been "exposing" the MLB since 2014. His Nationals vs Orioles prediction could be the reason. [14].

"2015 World Series - Called Mets in World Series in Spring Training"

Interesting how 1: literally anybody can make a prediction like that without even being a professional sports commentator, let alone someone claiming to have de-coded the world's best kept secret. And 2: notice he isn't telling us who he predicted to WIN the series? Surely he did more than just predict a team in spring-training that would only BE IN, without necessarily WINNING, the World Series (The Mets lost in 5 to the Kansas City Royals: surely if he predicted this as well, he'd proudly display it on his Patreon page, yet strangely enough, he doesn't). Actually, Hubbard predicted that a New York team would win (not just GET TO) the World Series in 2015 [15]. SPOILER: he was wrong yet again. To add icing to the cake, he also falsely predicted that the 2015 World Series might also be the "Subway Series" (Yankees vs Mets)[16].

"2016 World Series - Called Cubs to win World Series in Spring Training, and called it to end in Game 7, on 11/2, for the 112th World Series (Correct and Correct). Called Cubs to beat Indians before Playoffs began"

Unfortunately for Hubbard, there is a lot of information left out of his glowing claim. Hubbard spent much of the year claiming that it would be Astros/Rangers vs Cubs in the World Series[17]: The Rangers were swept in the 2016 ALDS and the Astros did not even reach the playoffs. Oh, but that doesn't matter, he changed his prediction before the playoffs began. Hubbard sure does change his predictions quite frequently for someone claiming it's all pre-determined since before the start of the season. He also speculated at the Texas Rangers vs Washington Nationals reaching in the World Series as well: neither team made it past the first round of the playoffs [18].

"2017 World Series - Called Astros over Dodgers in August"

Hubbard waited all the way until August before making his prediction, which is totally what NWO de-coders do, when the Astros and Dodgers were literally the two best teams in MLB (the former of which, had just acquired Justin Verlander from the Detroit Tigers). Making such an easy-ass prediction is a far-cry from proof that the NWO must have done it. Hubbard of course uses Hurricane Harvey instead as an excuse to praise gematria for his grand prediction. Prior, he had the Nationals winning the World Series[19]. Hubbard further argued that orange (the Astros uniform color) represents fire, and blue (the Dodgers uniform color) represents water and fire always beats water. It seems in Hubbard's imaginary world, buildings catch on water, waterfighters show up to the scene, and spray the building with fire and save the day. There is also, as we have already mentioned, Hubbard's failed Game 6 prediction, so even if at least got the winning team right, it does not prove that the NWO is behind it (once again, literally anyone can do this).

"2018 World Series - Said look for Red Sox to win World Series in Game 5, in July, a span of 99-days from the Patriots winning Super Bowl 99: (Boston Red Sox equals 53)"

What Hubbard isn't telling you is that he predicted the Braves to be in the World Series[20]: they lost in the NLDS to the eventual NL champions, the Los Angeles Dodgers (though Hubbard no doubt has a gematria explanation as a means of explaining away this supposed error of his).

"Called first three Warriors vs Cavs NBA Finals from start of season. Called Cavs to come back from 3-1 to win on real King James' birthday"

A thorough search of Hubbard's blog shows zero articles of Hubbard specifically predicting, in advance, that the the Warriors will blow a 3-1 lead to the Caviliers. Most likely, Hubbard is playing fast and loose with the definition of "prediction". There is a blog post of his mentioning the number "13" as meaning...something. Get it, 13, 3-1 lead? Remember that Hubbard straight up says anybody who either doesn't believe Hubbard or, worse yet, never caught on to this incredible pattern coincidence is just a member of the dumb sheeple. (This is similar to another incredibly deceitful example, where Hubbard falsely claims to have predicted North Carolina defeating Gonzaga in the Men's College Basketball Tournament[21]. If you actually go to his blog post[22] on the matter, however, he throws together as many numeral matches as possible, one of them being 71: so in short, Hubbard proved jack-shit. It seems as if Hubbard doesn't expect his audience to check up on his own blog and research this information. Where on Hubbard's webshite website does he say "I predict that this game will end with 71 points". SPOILER: nowhere on his blog does he do this).

"Called Warriors to sweep Cavs the year they did. Called Warriors to win June 12 the year they did."

Anyone who knew the bare basics of basketball saw the Warriors sweeping the Caviliers coming from a mile away (especially in 2018). How exactly does predicting this prove NWOdidit?

And now for a real laughable example. Hubbard also admits to screwing up his 2019 NBA finals prediction as the Warriors (totally NOT the favorites to win) didn't win the finals. Once again though, it doesn't matter, as he allegedly called the "Raptors to win in Game 6 before the game was played to help people hedge who had Warriors". (Hubbard also admits that he got the 2018 SuperBowl outcome incorrect, but it doesn't matter because he correctly guessed who would score the winning touchdown had the Eagles won, so the NWOstilldidit).

Of course this leads us to the rational question: why should any of his successful predictions be of any proof to his outlandish conclusion when there are just as many incorrect predictions that were left out? One would expect Hubbard's batting record (no pun intended) of predictions from his webshite website to be chalk-full of exact outcomes of exact teams, exact scores, and exact everything with 100% accuracy. Strangely enough, this kind of accurate information seems to be completely absent, or at least very difficult to find. In fact, a simple Google search "Zach Hubbard predicts exact outcome" turns up absolutely no results, minus Hubbard's Patreon page (before you even finish scrolling down to the first section of results, Google begins to show completely irrelevant results).

Hubbard Reaches an Incredible Low[edit]

Reaching an absolute low-point even for a batshit insane conspiracy theorist: Hubbard actually claimed the unfortunate death of 9 year old bat-boy from Kansas City was actually a fictionalized story made up to advance the NWO's gematria conspiracy [23].

A Rational Conclusion[edit]

Hubbard frequently talks and acts as if successfully predicting sporting matches is an alien concept to human society. When one predicts several sporting events to happen successfully, even when they get a few wrong here and there, there is no other possible reason for this other than the NWO taking over and controlling everything without anyone knowing about it. Hubbard claims that his success rate is higher than anyone else's, but of course provides no evidence for it. Even if true, that still doesn't prove that the NWO is behind major sports leagues: maybe if Hubbard had a 100% record we'd be convinced (then again looks like that will never happen, since those pesky sports leagues are always changing the damn script at the last minute to fool us and discredit conspiracy theorists).

A far more rational conclusion is that Hubbard is simply making reasoned observations for which team he thinks will win, no different than any sports commentator or YouTuber. The only difference is that Hubbard disguises his choices with his imaginary gematria bullshit so that whenever one of his predictions comes true, proudly claims to his uninformed audience that it was the gematria code all along.

Hubbard and Other Theories[edit]

Hubbard does have videos one of his defunct YouTube channels criticizing the flat Earth theory. While the motive for this is unknown, it is likely that Hubbard does this to make himself look just slightly less stupid, giving the rest of his work a negligible amount of credibility.

Hubbard also claims belief in the Lynnmouth Flood conspiracy theory.[24][25]
