Quote# 83890

If the Rapture happens soon and millions of people vanish and Obama doesn't have an explanation right away (because I think he is clueless to end time prophecy)...do you think he will panic and shut the internet down?

Do you think the internet will crash if Obama doesn't shut it down by over use by the masses. Is that possible? I don't know much about technology. When I think about it, maybe the use won't be as much as I think when millions of people that are gone won't be using it.

I really want the people that are left behind to be able to obtain all the "What's next"? information that is online after the Rapture.

When Hurricane Irene was coming up the East Coast I went out for D batteries (about 4 days before it was suppose to hit my area) and there was not any to be found! I was happy I already had some on hand, I was just adding extras to the stash. As I was looking at the empty shelves I started to think right then if this will be the case with Bibles soon after the Rapture. Will the people that heard the message but refuted it, now think "oh, maybe they were right" and run out to find a Bible and soon they will all be gone or will more people buy into a lie that the Pope or someone else is spreading around like wildfire.

If the internet stays on, at least there are many Bibles online for those that want them and so much more information too.

It is weird to think that after the Rapture this forum will be empty of posters. But what a wealth of information will remain. :-)

Back to my main question, do you think Obama will turn the internet off for whatever reason?

You don't need Hugs From Jesus, you need a straitjacket. The real Jesus facepalms & thinks you're insane. Have fun in your bunker while life goes on as normal in the real world! Dork.

Obama's just another Head of State. He can't just switch-off the Web "like that".

If the Rapture were "for real", all the real Christians would be sucked up, all you ChristoFundies will be "Left Behind". Imagine all of these nice, caring, charitable, selfless, loving, Christlike humanitarians, Mainstream TradConservatives, Moderates & Liberals....perhaps non-Christian "Honorary Christians" as well, Christlike Hindus, Jews, Muslims, Atheists, NeoPagans, etc....ALL RAPTURED!

"Left Behind" are the jerks, dictators, sociopaths & Fundies.

Everyone, IF the cRapture happens I have several copies of the Bibble, both hard copies and on my Kindle. Along with copies of the Koran, Tibetan Book of the Dead, Upanishads, etc.
But since the Bible says nothing about the cRapture, being that it's a delusion in the head of stupid people, I don't know how much good it would do us.
Personally if all the fundies were raptured* my only thought would be finding enough alcohol to properly celebrate such a wonderful event.

* I think we can agree the Rapture will never happen; but it is possible that they could all simultaneously commit suicide after getting impatient with waiting and realizing that their little cult will never get is way once gay marriage is legal in all 50 states.

Doubting Thomas

I think that you're thinking waaaaaay too much about this. And there is no "internet switch" that the president or any government official can just flip and turn it off.

And the only reason the bible would disappear from store shelves would be if toilet paper was in short supply.

Won't somebody think of the D cells?

Yes, Obama will turn off the Internet but only because he needed somewhere to plug in his coffee maker.

"It is weird to think that after the Rapture this forum will be empty of posters."

If the rapture DOES happen, I'm guessing you lot will be left here.

Actually, I might start a book. who'll give me odds that the first post on RR after the rapture is "Obama has 'disappeared' a load of 'suppsoed' Christians away to death camps and claiming they've been raptured just to make it easier to hide the real rapture when we all disappear! (sprinkle random smilies throughout)"

It is weird to think that after the Rapture this forum will be empty of posters.

The heck it would. It would be filled with the wailing and gnashing of teeth among all the bigoted, hate-filled, judgmental fundamentalists wondering if perhaps "love thy neighbor" meant something more than lecturing people on how they're going to hell for listening to heavy metal, dressing in short skirts or getting baptized as infants.

"I don't know much about technology."

Obviously not, if you think Obama can shut the internet down.

You also might want to bone up on physics, biology and history.

Could the POTUSA shut down the internet? No! Could the POTUSA degrade the World Wide Web to the point of unusability? Yes!
Given the logistical back up and about 12 pounds of Semtex, I could do it so I'm sure that the Commander in Chief of the worlds largest military could as well.
The only question is why would he, or I, bother ?

9/27/2011 8:50:42 AM

I don't think he coud get to all the tubes in time to plug them all...

9/27/2011 9:05:23 AM


Wait a minute...what the heck still runs on D batteries? A quick check of my household items shows that my stuff, remotes, flash lights, phone, radios, all run on double or triple As, various types of those tiny cell batteries, and device specific rechargeable lithium batteries.

Obama doesn't have to worry about explaining anything away since IT'S NOT GOING TO HAPPEN.

I don't think it's possible to live in America and NOT hear about end times prophecy, unless you live under a rock or something.

9/27/2011 9:31:30 AM


What if there is a Rapture and Obama goes and you don't?

9/27/2011 9:37:26 AM


First off, the Internet cannot be shut down by presidential order. You do realize that it is a worldwide network, right?
Second, the rapture is a fantasy for retards like you. Since it's never going to happen, the rest of your idiotic question is moot.

Just get Norton, and then Obama's stupid-ass won't be able to hack or nuthin'. Also it'll help immensely if you take Computer Science III.

No, he won't. If he really wanted you shut down, he would have done it by now. End of discussion.

Shut the internet down? lmfao!! haha! wow. You really don't know how much power the US president has do you, haha!!

Also, you can't stop the signal...

I like how it starts off with the question that <b>if the rapture happens</b> will Obama turn the internet off (turn it off?? huh?), and then closes with "back to my main quetsion, do you think Obama will turn the internet off <b>for whatever reason</b>?"

I've got news for you. "for whatever reason" and "if the rapture happens" are not synonyms by any long shot, idiot.

From thread:

"It is a good thing non-believers are reading sites like this one.'

And many are having a terribly good time at your expense.

"Faith comes through hearing and hearing through the word of God[sic].'

Odd, I always thought faith comes from childhood indoctrination, and lack of emotional maturity as an adult. Maybe a healthy dose of reality denial as well..oh wait, that's covered under the emotional maturity clause.

"Scripture is posted on here from time to time and often referenced.'

And if scipture doesn't frighten the hell out of you, nothing likely will.

It is interesting to see the hive mind in action. One person proposes some bit of utter rubbish, and given anough time churing in The Wurlitzer, it has always been so.
