Can the internet actually be destroyed? Is a Revelation-like virus possible? Post your theories with enough proof for a "No its not possible" or "Yes it might be" theory. I know Mattpat or any other theorist on youtube wont do it,

It might be HYPOTHETICALLY possible to craft a virus that affects every machine in the entire internet - Windows + Mac + Linux + whatever - and successfully spread it and activate it all at once before anyone catches it. If it manages to completely destroy the majority of the backbone of the internet (ISPs, DNS servers, routers, etc) then yes, the internet will go down.

And then several millions of dollars and about a week later, it would go back up and whatever vulnerabilities allowed this to happen would be patched.

The internet can't END. I mean, let's say it does. Why not just make another one?
