Rick Rosner, an Emmy-nominated genius with the world's second-highest IQ (198), reveals his alternative to the ‘Big Bang Theory’ in a new series of interviews. Rosner has been developing his theory for thirty-three years while working as an undercover high school student, stripper, bar bouncer and comedy writer. He’s not life’s typical theorizer and, while he is deadly-serious about his ability to change humanity’s understanding of the universe and its place within it, he opens the final decision about his credibility to public scrutiny.
Los Angeles, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/29/2014 -- Many would picture the man with the world’s second-highest IQ spending his life in wood-paneled libraries or endlessly walking around a quadrangle pondering philosophy. Not Rick G. Rosner – whose IQ of 198 and certified ‘genius’ (according to the World Genius Directory) status have seen him spend a decade as a high school senior, twenty-five years as a stripper/nude model and twelve years writing for Jimmy Kimmel Live.
Quirks aside, Rosner’s unique and boundless mental energy has produced something epic; an alternative to the Big Bang Theory. After thirty-plus years of diligent development, Rosner is finally taking his theory public in a series of six interviews with Scott Jacobsen at In-SightJournal.com.
"The Big Bang Theory has been the accepted explanation for the universe for less than 50 years. It's not immune to revision. My theory is more like Little Bang Theory, with the universe like a slowly boiling pot of water, exploding a little bit at a time and recycling itself across an inconceivable span of years,” explains Rosner, who is credited as an Emmy-nominated writer on more than 2,500 hours of Primetime television.
Continuing, “Even if only some of what I claim is true, this will radically change our understanding of the universe and our place in it. Previous discoveries by Copernicus, Newton, Darwin, Einstein and Hubble took humans farther and farther away from the center of creation. My theory, if accurate, gives high-level information processing - that is, thought - a central role in the universe. If the universe itself processes information as we do, we should feel a little less alone, and the universe should feel a little less cold. It's a small bit of solace.”
However, Rosner’s career as a ‘Professional Crazy Person’ is expected to call the legitimacy of his theory into question. Rosner embraces this skepticism and challenges the media and public to judge for themselves.
“When people find out that a TV comedy writer has a theory that could change how the universe is perceived, they’ll understandably be highly skeptical. I’ve been hesitant to reveal my theory until now but am confident that it presents a new, more accurate picture of the universe, which cycles through information as our brains do. The Big Bang Theory would have the universe think just a single thought. Are my theory and I the real, kind of weird, deal, or am I simply nuts? Decide for yourself!” he adds.
Is this the story of an outsider succeeding against incredible odds, or the story of a fool on a deluded quest? Has an unconventional genius really figured out what the universe is up to?

About Richard G. "Rick" Rosner
Richard G. "Rick" Rosner (born May 2, 1960) is an American television writer and media figure known for his high intelligence test scores and his unusual career. He has achieved some of the highest scores ever recorded on IQ tests designed to measure exceptional intelligence and has become known for applying his high IQ to activities not usually associated with geniuses. Rosner used fake IDs to re-enroll in high school repeatedly, and he has worked as a stripper, roller-skating waiter, bouncer, and nude model. He has appeared in numerous documentaries and profiles about his activities and views. He has also appeared in a Domino's Pizza commercial and sued the quiz show Who Wants to be a Millionaire over an allegedly flawed question he missed as a contestant in 2000. He writes and produces for quiz shows and for several programs produced by Jimmy Kimmel, including The Man Show, Crank Yankers, and Jimmy Kimmel Live!
Rosner grew up in Boulder, Colorado. After graduating high school and attending University of Colorado, Boulder on and off for several years, he repeated several years of high school voluntarily in Albuquerque, New Mexico and elsewhere using forged documents. Rosner moved to New York and wrote for MTV. When his wife got a job offer in California, they moved west. While writing for TV, he placed several ads about his physics theories in the entertainment trade journal Variety.
Rosner has one of the world’s highest IQs. In 1985, he scored 44 out of 48 on Ron Hoeflin’s Mega Test, the second-highest score among the nearly 4,000 people who took the test. In 1990, Rosner received the only perfect score on Hoeflin’s equally difficult Titan Test and, in 1991, scored 47 in a second attempt at the Mega Test. His combined scores indicate an adult (deviation) IQ in the mid- to high-190s. From 1991 to 1997, Rosner was editor of Noesis, the journal of the Mega Society, an organization open to people who have scored at the one-in-a-million level on tests of general intelligence.
Rosner began writing for quiz shows in 1987 on the MTV series Remote Control. He then scripted a number of clip shows, countdowns, and outtake programs in the 1990s. Rosner's 2000 appearance on the quiz show Who Wants to be a Millionaire led to a lawsuit over an apparently flawed question he missed on the elevation of various country capitals. His letter-writing campaign and attempts to get brought back on the show led to his being profiled in the Errol Morris series First Person. Jimmy Kimmel later hired him as a writer, producer and occasional on-air talent. He appeared as The World’s Smartest Man in a national Domino's Pizza television ad and appeared on Bill Simmons' ESPN podcast "The BS Report." Rosner was featured on an episode of A&E Television's Obsessed. The episode focused on his obsession with working out and fear of aging/dying.
