I remember reading about a time traveler who posted around 1999. He claimed to be in the army and starting posting online for a little while. He talked about a civil war happening in the States around the year 2008. It wouldn't be north vs south, but instead those aligned with the goverment and those opposed. He claimed the government would take excessive means to control the people, they'd be limited in their actions because of fear. He talked about Russia being aligned with those the Americans opposed to the U.S government and China aligned with the U.S government. This eventually leads to another World War, but in this case nukes are used. Something like everywhere is affected except for South America.
After this war people become less violent. They start to become more Spiritual. He said the U.S government has 5 or 6 presidents. Also life is more of a community thing afterwards. If you don't pull your weight in the community, then you could be kicked out. They also work 5 or 6 hours instead of the average 8.
I forgot the name of the website that has all this info, but i'm sure someone could find it if they look. I'm not sure if what i wrote down was exactly what he said, but i'm just going by what i remember. From what he has said though... umm *looks outside*, things seem to be falling into place.
Oh and to add Jesus doesn't come back. Also in his time, time travel isn't known to the public and is thought of as impossible.
