Deep impact : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

took the kidz to see the movie deep impact last night. Bruce willis's new movie preview was interesting, it is titled 'Armagdon' funny that these end of the world movies are suddenly the rage. Deep impact had a very interesting political undercurrent that reminded me of the possible Y2K responce. it is worth a look for this content only. Check it out.

I saw deep impact, but I wouldn't relate it to the Y2k problem.. If anything.. at the moment.. people don't think it will be a big deal. Maybe a few months before.. people will be rushing to stores and buying can goods, etc. But they have nothing to fear as in asteroid wise.. people really should take a look at Revelations in the Bible.. it shows the future.. on what is coming. It talks about the Antichrist coming and he will be the world power. Hmmm.. maybe this computer crisis.. will make the governments join together and create a world power.. which in turn provides a path for the Antichrist to rule for the tribulation period.. Movies aren't the way.. God is..

My wife and I saw this movie about a month ago. There is a scene near the begining of the movie in which one of the high government officials is loading his boat with tons of food and drink. When this shot appeared on the screen my wife and I looked at each other in the dark, both knowing the thoughts of the other.

Also interesting to me was the fact that the president in the film declared martial law without warning, in his first speach about the looming disaster. I suspect that Clinton will act with equal aggression, when the situation dictates.

My advice is to do what you need to do in order to be ready ahead of 1999, we will have everything finished with our plans by Nov. 1998. This hopefully will keep us from running into possible anti food hoarding, or other similar laws. What I picture in my mind would be rationing books such as used in WWII.
