well as the comment section is disabled i guess this will be the place for discussion. I really need to relisten to this episode as there is a lot id like to discuss. anyways for the moment ill share my favourite part, its not a very important or deep part but the "a wizard did it" line delivery was PERFECT!!! Hope this becomes a respectfull and logical space to discuss the themes brought forward by this awesome piece of work.
There are some funny parts in LBATTOG, but I don't know if they are intentionly there to lighten the mood or if the 'source material' is so strange to people who don't believe in the rapture.
I like the parts about the agenda/worldviews of the authors and how the believe in rapture leads to some form of nihilism, because that is what I can't understand. Maybe it is part of what was cut and maybe it can't be explained, but after watching LBATTOG I still don't get why people believe in a rapture. I get who invented it and why people preach it, but I don't understand why I should believe that some otherworldly armageddon is about to happen. Aren't there enough problem already? While many americans claim to hate 'the goverment', it seems to outsiders the same people sure do believe other authority figures which talk about an event which humanity hasn't ever experienced before.
About Leons twitter poll - I think the movie will do good, but not go viral. To gain enough buzz the topic is to specific. Though that could only be my perception because the whole debate is so out of my regular live. As said in the movie, it is a believe mostly only common in the US. A friend of mine raised as a Jehova witness would joke about the rapture himself (but he is also a metalhead, so maybe not the best example). One or two years ago three people started standing at my trainstation with a stand claiming "What the bible really says" but I never see anyone bothered to even ask what organisation they are from ... I met one person who she believed in the devil in my job training and three people who made their training at the archbishopric in the same class: noone of them would ever take the bible literal or prepare for the endtimes.

EsADeo: I don't know whether to post this in the forums for Season 2, 3 or 4, but technically I think Joan got what she wanted. An incredibly long time after she died, but still.
