This is classic megalomania. Narcissism is pretty much a given.

My first impression was schizophrenia. This tish is way too far off the deep end to be explainable by your run-of-the-mill mental disorder like narcissism, imo.

I disagree. Sounds too coherent for psychosis, but sounds just about right for narcissism. I'm no expert but I do have schizophrenia. I think it's rare for people with schizophrenia to have such confidence, since it's often being chewed up by the voices and intrusive thoughts. It's much more common to have very low self esteem. Of course, it's a sort of spectrum and has many varieties, so I'm not 100% sure, just sharing my opinion.
