How Will We Find Out About Moshiach

The speakers and posters against internet frequently will invoke hastening moshiach's coming as a result of our pure abstinence from the forbidden electronic tumah.

If they are really and truly expecting moshiach, I beg to inform them that moshiach's arrival will in more likelihood be heralded on the internet first.

lets not get carried away. chazal does not mention anything about the internet. unless you have access to a secret midrash which will be your next post.

Mr. Deerson's comment notwithstanding, Chazal's words are always only in accordance with loshon bnei odom of that time. However, I do agree that we're kind of getting carried away with the extent of the Internet and it's value as a resource for news. Somehow I think that Moshiach will surely be heralded on newhydepark.com. Although I'm not sure if they'll do their due deligence in checking out the veracity of Eliyahu Hanovi's announcements. They usually don't.

Deer: Are you implying that chazal did not anticipate the internet?

Prof: During recent disasters such as Katrina, the internet was the only functioning news resource. Of course, Moshiach is not a disaster, but 'mida tova meruba'.
