Cities are a powderkeg waiting to happen. : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

"... our great technological systems of human organization and association are continuously outgrowing ordered control; they are now reaching critical dimensions of instability... a chance concomitance of stoppages in the same area could start a catastrophic process that would paralyze the most developed societies and lead to the deaths of millions of people... It seems very likely... that the most developed nations are on the way toward breakdown on a large scale...."

Roberto Vacca - The Coming Dark Age

Roberto Vacca is a mathematician and an authority in the fields of electronic systems and computers. I believe this is what we face if there are extended disruptions in critical sectors next year due to Y2K failures. This is why I got out of Dodge before Paul Milne did. There is a saying about the stock market that goes something like this, 'save the last few dollars of profit for the next person'.

read the book.''the late great planet earth'' BY hal lyndsey

I read Vacca's book. The book seemed overall wordy to me, but the chapter in question is good. It certainly had applicability to Y2K issues.

Doggie boy,

Hal lindsey is a flake, that has been generating income for some years now on individuals that think he (Hal Lindsay) has some great brain and can estimate the end of the world as we know it and tie it in to prophetic biblical scripture. Much like that guy Jack Van wimpe or is it impe?

Ed lizzard,

I think it is pretty obvious to anyone, that things on our planet and with our species are not well. and that would be excluding this--------0110011001000111100111001111101101000001111 Problem!!

Doggie boy,

I suspect there are a great majority of americans who are very spiritual.

It is just extremely difficult to reconcile science,i.e.,evolution,common sense and todays world with Jesus,pharisees,noah,jonah,etc.

As far as Pride, you my friend should look in the mirror. If your reference was to my post then you certainly don't understand. I, as opposed to a pharisee (sp). will fall down on my face 50yds. from my fathers house and -not feel worthy to enter.

I suspect, on the other hand, you are right up front in your pew, telling God how worthy and righteous you Are.

No one is worthy to enter Paradise. Only by the GRACE of God and through JESUS can one gain eternal life. JESUS died for ALL-EVERYONE- EVERYWHERE> Through JESUS sins are forgiven.

I know why I am posting anonymously, but for the life'a me, I don't know why you Bible-quotin', gospel-preachin' posters feel that you, a) have to post your private religious opinions on this forum; and, b) why you such people feel you have to post anonymously to this forum if you truly live what attempt to communicate via your posts(?) I mean, I KNOW that I'm a gutless coward-- what's your-all's excuse?

OK: once again, this is not a forum for the posting of personal religious [read-- musings of an uneducated semi-literate fundamentalist private nature] opinions.

Would you guys who are posting this kind of "stuff" please go somewhere else to spread your "good news"? Thanks.

Dear dewer dye, our problem as a nation' is much BIGGER than Y2K. IT,S A SPIRITUAL-BATTLE.---IT STARTED IN THE 60S.
