The Most Dangerous Man in America 2017 - Part 3

It's been a long time. Certainly long enough to begin a new thread here, and begin publishing my latest, greatest, evidence of spiritual power.

I will argue that planet earth is similar to your PC or laptop, in that it too runs on software, which can accept commands. The term I prefer to use is "command line sequence."

My first act after returning to these boards was to perform a search of the word "eclipse," and I was surprised to find no obvious threads on the subject, pop up. Perhaps I'm overlooking something, or failing to use the more advances features, but I would have expected at least as many threads about the recent total solar eclipse in the U.S., as I see on "Big Foot." After all, long before the "big feet" era, native or ancient peoples saw an eclipse as a significant transitional event, usually taken in a negative light.

For those who may have forgotten or are unfamiliar, I am Raptor Witness, and I claim to be the most dangerous man in America, capable of sending any plague I choose, upon the Kingdom of the Beast and the False Prophet, which are the United States government, and her broadcast media apparatus.

I respect the atheist, or agnostic point of view, and critical thinkers of all stripes. You are equally welcome to debate, but please understand that simple criticism is not debate material.

My time is sometimes limited, so if you're a serious critic and I don't respond in a timely fashion, please feel free to alert me on my other social media platforms, or by PM here. I have a busy life outside of here, but every so often I enjoy this type of environment, especially after I've had time to build up a series of effective plagues, which have arguably already been executed on Earth's mainframe. Note that I’m speaking in the past tense here, but of course I may offer up some new material in this thread, also. By “new material,” I simply mean new plagues.

Not exactly, but I do claim to have arguably foreseen his coming on the world's stage, using a simple metaphor for describing his personality traits and general appearance.

For years, prior to his election, I called him "Heat Miser," when speaking directly to the U.S. Intelligence community, who I had previously warned of "Snow Miser's" coming, a.k.a. Edward Snowden.

Quote:

Should I be like the NSA, who is both blind and deaf to the future, warning no one of danger?

I'm not paid to whisper, "collect it all."

The most important thing, the one thing they cannot collect, are the communications between Heaven and earth.

In fact, their attempts to so, have resulted in being made a mockery of.

Billions paid for blind guides, which shall continue, except for what I give them for free.

Let them find Heat Miser, now crackling under their feet.

For those unfamiliar, Heat Miser was a cartoon character in the movie The Year Without a Santa Claus

Speaking to the U.S. Intelligence Community.

If they want to consider Edward Snowden and Heat Miser as human plagues, that was never my intention, but I do believe there is some precedence for this concept, as the wording is technically in the correct format.

"Let them find ..... Heat Miser ..." is a command line sequence.

The difference is, an utterance has no intent. It's like speaking in a language that the speaker doesn't comprehend.

Yeah...ummm...Hey, Raptor Witness: I'm kinda new here, as are many posters, and I confess that I really don't know how many Horsemen of the Apocalypse there are banging around on this forum. You wouldn't perhaps indulge some of us newbies with a Cliff Notes version of your credentials for being a Harbinger of Doom? You know, burden of proof being on the claimant, extraordinary claims requiring extraordinary proofs, and what not. Also, my paperboy skipped me again, you wouldn't by chance smite with small, directed plagues, would you? Couple boils, maybe frogs or something?

Thank you ...

Many of my plague artwork completed over the past handful of years, contains images of a solar eclipse, and this is before I consciously considered it as the reason for doing this. That is, I often inserted things in front of, or on the solar disk, coupled with written warnings, sometimes in Latin. However, I didn't find out about the recent solar eclipse until perhaps April of this year. I'm not a space geek, is why.

Although I do not personally believe in the omen of an eclipse per se, I do believe in their use as clocks and for alarms settings in the Bible.

In the Biblical sense, an eclipse was simply another way of keeping or marking time, for longer than the solar, or lunar cycles.

For example, when Jesus died, there was reportedly a solar eclipse where he was crucified. Whether you believe the story or not, it's interesting because it shows the event had unique significance, beyond the human tragedy being reported.

The critical thinkers here will recall that Columbus did something similar. However, he had a publication to help him.

No one on horseback here. If I were, I would perhaps be better at playing the ponies. No such luck, I'm afraid.

I would invite you to study what will soon follow ....

If you find the extraordinary, I welcome your input.

Count on it. I skimmed your previous threads, will look over in more detail as time permits. I gather you claim abilities in weather prediction and other prophetic gifts, yes? To what do you attribute these abilities? Asking to get future posters (who I am confident will arrive shortly) all on the same page to streamline the discussion.

You know that solar eclipses occur about once every 18 months on average, right?

How do you enter and then execute command line sequences on the earth's mainframe? Do you speak some words, or is it merely holding an intention in mind, or do you log in to a website somewhere and jack out of the matrix?

Asking for a friend.

That was my first thought as well... certainly potentially more dangerous than RW.

And even at four... he probably knew about the most widely publicized and anticipated eclipse in history before RW did.



eta: I was going to mention I thought our massive main eclipse thread ran for at least a couple years of the run-up to Eclipse Day... turns out it was FOUR.

Between it and the several minor related threads... not being able to find them here, says something really... special.

So in another words you’re arguing for an 18 month clock, but one in which you have to walk somewhere on the earth to hopefully find and see the alarm bell go off, assuming you bothered to set the alarm.

“Approximately once every 18 months (on average) a total solar eclipse is visible from some place on the Earth’s surface.”

“the mean frequency for a total eclipse of the sun for any given point on the Earth's surface is once in 375 years.” - https://www.space.com/25644-total-so...explained.html

Again to use a simple example, in the case of Jesus’s death on the cross, I would argue in that case, someone arguably set the alarm, but that’s just my personal belief. If you believe the story is true, then the alarm was meant to be seen not just by Jesus, but by the people who observed His death. Not to mention all who would read the story afterwards. Which makes me wonder if Judas Iscariot could ever be convicted in such a case, since the event itself would appear preplanned. It does seem to be a bit of a contradiction. How could Judas, of his own free will, plan a crime, which has an eclipse set for the alarm clock?

Perhaps it wasn’t the moon that moved in front of the sun. Perhaps it was His ride.

As I said, it can be considered another way of measuring time in addition to the regular sunrise sunset, or the earth’s annual procession, or the lunar cycle.

I look at a solar eclipse as more a rare phenomenon or event in my lifetime, since I have seen one partial, and one total.

I think for most of us, we will be lucky to see one within walking distance of our resident homes, so perhaps once-in-a-lifetime.

The most dangerous man in America calls the American government the "Kingdom of the Beast and the False Prophet"? Get out much? What beast specifically? Just big and bad? What false prophet? Harvey Weinsteinspielbergmanrosengould? Just curious, I'm keeping a log down here at headquarters.

No, I'm just pointing out that total eclipses are not a rare phenomenon. I can see no reason why anyone would use them as a clock or alarm, they are entirely unsuitable for that purpose.

I dunno so much. I plan to return my blockbuster rental DVDs at the next eclipse. Seems reasonable.

Not long enough. Weak ****.

You confuse the definition of the word "dangerous" for the definition of the word "delusional."

Can you please just release a plague of peace and religious harmony across the world starting, say, 4.45PM GMT 23rd Oct (that way I can look out for it spreading)?

Don't waste time with us mere mortals, you have important work to do.

Maybe.

We can't look under their hat, though, being on-line and all that.

I have a question. If you have the powers you say you do, why are you labelling yourself as merely the most dangerous man in America? Why not the world? Hell, the universe! Or do you believe other people with your abilities reside in other parts of the world/universe?
