Mabus, David (actually Markuze, Dennis)

This guy's just a low-hanging fruitloop, not really one of your more impressive kooks. According to Skippy the Skeptic's blog, Mabus is actually Dennis Markuze of Canada, a devoted Nostradamus fan who is convinced that the old boy predicted the existence of Depeche Mode.

Mabus is also obsessed with James Randi and his million-dollar challenge, claiming that Randi owes him that million bucks and sneering that Randi has "taken down" the challenge.

Doesn't like atheists, apparently. His most-recent post in the alt.atheism newsgroup:

Kicking in the heads of atheists one at a time...

Apparently, he thinks "kicking in" atheists' heads involves a ton of YouTube embeds of Depeche Mode videos.

But he's pathetically unoriginal:

That was in the comments of the Skippy page I linked to above--May of 2008.


I've asked him to complete a list of his other kook credentials so that a better entry can be completed here.

Given that Mabus is a troll, PZ Myers at the Pharyngula blog has seen fit to put Davie in the Dungeon--his blog's killfile.

On Dec. 4, he replied to the "Lotsa Kooks" linking to a post on the forum at

This guy's more boring than _I_ am.

He's apparently got a boring FaceBook page, too--but it can't be real because it shows him as having FRIENDS (tip of the hat to PanamaFloyd for finding it). Going by his picture, Dennis has a garish gold face and no eyes, and grapes for hair. Scary.

December 13, 2009: Another discussion of Mabus, this time at Skeptic Friends Network (September 2009). Apparently this goofball threatened James Randi and his wife for "cheating" him out of the million-dollar prize.

Photographed at AAI convention.

People demand action on dealing with him; cops do nothing.

Petition goes out demanding action on his threats and stalking

Montreal police answer 4,000-name petition by announcing they'll finally investigate him; his mother says he's a good boy, misunderstood: cops probe death threats; Time to Institutionalize...

...and he's discussed Mabus before:

Some rightie jobbie thinks he's an undercover liberal

Arrested! Aug 17, 2011

Back-story of his exploits, leading up to the arrest
Notorious spammer brought down

Gets conditional release, goes back to trolling (no death threats so far); next hearing Jan. 25, 2012
Out and back in business

Nov. 20, 2012: resumed posting online (including alt.atheism) under the nym "Operation Archangel"); was re-arrested by Montreal police for violating the terms of his probation. Judge releases him in exchange for a promise to stop.
He's back...

November 21, 2012: wow, visited by the Great Man himself (see comments).

November 25, 2012: Tim Farley has a writeup on Mabus' rearrest.
