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?

If the rapture happens and there are no more bibles avaliable to buy I'll just wait until the next day to find one in the street after everyone realizes it says nothing about the rapture.

Obama couldn't shut down the Internet. In fact the only people with such power are the Elders of the Internet, and they wouldn't want him to I'm sure. Also, the Internet is at the top of Big Ben in London, and I doubt Obama would be able to reach the off button.

All the information that is available on line and these dumb asses only use it to find the bible, which they already have at home and don't read.

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

A friend of mine has a contract with MI6 to - four times a year - do essential maintenance on the supercomputers at GCHQ:



Whilst the Home Office ran stringent security checks on him prior to winning said contract, and that an MI6 operative always monitors his work, he has the necessary security clearance to access most, if not all of said supercomputers' database, as well as their comprehensive telecommunications interception & scanning facilities - and far more besides; especially the Internet*. While he can't describe in exact detail the hows of such, as he's signed the Official Secrets Act, let's just say that MI6 don't need to 'turn off the internet' as you say, little Raptard.

PROTIP: he could tell me, however, that the FBI, CIA, and even the NSA, have to beg on their hands & knees to the Home Secretary, just for the merest sniff of access to the huge database of info at GCHQ; even then, said access by those US agencies are strictly controlled. Remember: Bletchley Park in WWII (the proto-GCHQ). We effectively invented intelligence gathering/spying/cryptology (& codebreaking) methods, from Tudor times. Never mind 'keeping your enemies closer', it pays to know more about your own friends than they do. 'Knowledge is Power', and all that jazz.

Be afraid. Be very afraid, Ruptured Retards: One word: ECHELON. >:D

*- How do you think Scotland Yard has been so successful, re. their 'Operation Orr' in finding & bringing to justice - and not just in the UK - so many paedophile rings? They have b(l)ackup from GCHQ. [/4chan] Such scanning & interception techniques (& pooling of resources) learned from Scotland Yard's own cybercrime division, have served GCHQ in detecting & gathering intelligence on the likes of Al-Qaeda.

The Internet is regulated with old pre-decimalisation pennies & halfpennies. X3

Did you know that the main bell in the Palace of Westminster clock tower (the latter is a misnomer; 'Big Ben' is the name of the bell itself, which strikes the hours, after the quarter, half-past & quarter-to chimes. But it's generally what said clock tower is called) is a stoner? Every hour it goes: 'BONG!'

...thank you, I'm here all week. Try the Parliamentary complimentary buffet! X3

I wonder, will one of these raptards accidentally delete the internet one day? Or will it break down under the weight of all the stupid?

One does not simply turn the Internet off.

If you believe in that 19th Century fanfiction exclusive to a few American Protestantic sects known as "the Rapture", you are clueless to end time prophecy

What is "soon" for you, honey? In ten, twenty, fifty, hundred, thousand years?

Obama can't "shut the internet down", dearie. It's a world-wide thingy, that goes from computer to computer, and no-one owns it. You, personally, can be shut off from the Internet, by your government or by a power-shortage, but the Internet is still out there. It's almost a living entity.

You don't know much about, well, anything, apparently. The world is not the US. Most people are NOT Americans; only about 4 percent of the world population are Americans. (There are more homosexual people in the world, than there are Americans.)

There are about 7,4 billion people's in the world. About 2 billion of them are Christians, and not all are "born again" or "fundies". So a measly couple of million people missing won't really register globally; about that number dies every day, anyway.

Most people in Sweden - one of the least religious countries in the world - already have a Bible or two. Many teenagers go through Confirmation at 15 or 16, to get money or gifts, including a Bible (not the most appreciated gift, I can tell ya). The Gideons International distribute New Testaments to schools and army people. As a result, hubby and me have two Bibles, two Gideons, and a illustrated Crumb's Genesis. Neither of us are religious... (I had a very zealous teacher in year 4 (age 10), who thought that you ought to learn things by heart. I know most of the Gospel of Luke, still, which is very useful when I can't fall asleep. I just recite it to myself, and get sleepier and sleepier by the minute...)

The Pope is spreading the same lies as you do, dearie.

Even IF the Rapture happens, how do you know that every RR member will be removed? Have you all sold all your possessions and given the money to the poor? Have none of you ever eaten shellfish, nor worn clothes of mixed fabrics? Have none of you left a poor, sick or homeless person to fend for him/herself? These are all things that Jesus said you MUST do to follow him.

To your main question; the Internet is not owned nor controlled by the US president, but a WORLD WIDE web, silly-nilly.
