    Not trying to get too religious up here, Christianity has been taught in several ways with the same concept of Christ saving all God loving people through being crucified. But, I must say that about the rapture bit from what ive learned and read in the Bible (main religous book for Christians) that even if you broke gods 10 commandments (also in the bible) as long as you believed in him and all that other stuff you have yourself a place in heaven. I don't gor everyone, this is all up for interpretation. It just seems like MatPat just skimmed over why only criminals and the insane were still on Earth without much context. On top of that, does that mean that we're just going to call insanity a crime or crime insanity? Comment on what you guys think.

    Clearly, it's a liberal, Democratic fascist.
    Fascism (/ˈfæʃɪzəm/) is a form of radical, left-wing, authoritarian ultrasocialism, characterized by dictatorial power, forcible suppression of opposition, and strong regimentation of society and of the economy.
    Sound familiar.....?

    My firts theory is that they see Jesus and they kill their self to go love with him and my second theory is that they see the devil and say "fuck this shit I'm out" and kill their self. I think my first theory makes more sense tho.

  • Joeani Andrea Sullano

    - "lucifer"(old name of satan) most beautiful angel that was ever made by God
    - leader of the choir in heaven
    - satan got jealous/mad, for God chose Jesus to His right hand.
    - which God sent satan to Hell
    - trying to lure people in earth to do bad things so somebody to be with him in hell
    So maybe the "monster" in birdbox is satan, that we need to avoid/or being blindfolded so we can avoid him for not to be evil or something that God didn't want us to do.

    Just my own theory ^-^
    P.S hell doesn't exist after the second coming of Christ ^-^

    Here's my theory the monsters are the good guys but yet they are demons and they are trying to send good people to heaven by killing them but the bad people stay and help them to get the people to kill them because the people are killing the earth so the monsters make them extinct because they were on this planet before humans so the earth was originally theirs.

    I feel like this movie was sort of like explaining how hard it is for blind people or like how hard it is with out sight!
    It sort of spread a message of like how important sight is so don’t treat your eye like a piece of rubbish treat them like your most prized possession! And also why couldn’t they just like......... dump flour on the creature and show us what it is! It’s very very annoying when you don’t know something!

    Sorry for wasting your time have a good day and you willl always look beautiful!
