    I agree with you but in 11:53 the tree's are moving so I think the monster could have been invisible.

    To be honest probably just Herma Mora revealing all the knowledge of existence and causing our brains to overload with knowledge and make us kill ourselves because we've been exposed to the true horrors of existence.
    Or just a _really_ bad tentacle hentai.

    When I was a younger I would go crazy when hearing about infinity, I locked myself in a closet, questioning reality, it I was really bad for me because I couldn’t sleep until I’m really tired for a whole week. Some times it still happens. Has anyone had this happen to them before?

    honestly i'm starting to think that it's kind of like the start of judgment day in islam, only difference is that the good would die by the angels taking their soul (not committing suicide because that is a sin) then the bad will remain on earth and as a punishment and observe the horrifying events of judgment day until they die from it

    “Octopus Jesus” I see it more like, “yes! The rapture part is correct but I feel like it’s more like the monster is like Lucifer and his angels which before there fall they were beautiful angels so it makes sense for them to say there beautiful because it is said that Lucifer was beautiful and in this theory everthing makes sense for example the reason they can be in many places at once is if it wasn’t just one monster but instead Lucifer and his angles/Demons followers set lose after the rapture for the 7 years of destruction idk if it’s perfect sense but they could also appear like something they are not well this is my theory

    Also pregnant women apparently aren't effected which was shown when the main girl's sister was taking her home and the sister saw it but the main girl(which was pregnant at the time) did not and birds seem to always know when the monster is coming-

    Uhhhh.....huh. So, the notion that a magician would descend from the sky in the form of an Old God doesn't strain credulity, but the idea of people being bodily caught up in the clouds does? Dude. Seriously.

    You're also committing the absolute cardinal sin of scriptural interpretation and mixing up your books and verses - easily the most pervasively incorrect and dishonest thing that the majority of Christian preachers and believers do these days. The Rapture has absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with the Revelation of John, and in some important ways contradicts it if you're reading both literally. Of course, if you're reading the Revelation literally you're doing it wrong, since it's transparently obvious that it is a thinly coded early Christian foretelling of the fall of the Roman Empire (and, spoiler alert - that didn't happen). Rolling in literally anything from the original Hebrew scripture is even worse, though, since Yaweh and the deity either is Jesus of Nazareth or is proclaimed by him (depending on perspective) are fundamentally different creatures in many, MANY ways. There's a reason why gnostics glommed onto Christianity the way that they did. Yaweh kills people and animals and generally afflicts the least deserving person in the entire universe with the worst of travails to settle a bar bet with that annoying guy from accounting and Jesus's deity grants eternal salvation for what eventually amounts to high fiving a zombie by the time the actual faith starts to congeal (not in the least because it's one of the two big ways that Paul manages to beat out James, but that's a whole other digression). Hell - in our best reconstruction of E-text, Yaweh commands the sacrifice of Isaac and nobody actually stops it (the tradition of the sacrifice being diverted from a boy to a ram seems to come from J-text). They're not the same entity, and any time somebody tries to mix things said by or about one with the other, that's a pretty clear indicator that said body doesn't know what they're talking about and should probably not be talking in the first place.

    Besides - if you're going to go mixing your scriptures, the notion of a bodily ascension in the thing later Christians decided to invent that they call The Rapture shouldn't be that much of a stretch at all, given that it's what happened to Enoch.

    Honestly? This is an example of one of those videos that you make because you're just barfing up content. While not quite as bad as your attempt to claim credit for sussing out something that the Harry Potter books make explicitly clear, the notion that looking at an Old God makes you invert your excrement is pretty much a foregone conclusion for anybody who's even brushed sidelong against the mythos and the Christian imagery is just shoddy work all around. As far as garbage videos meant to feed the algorithm go, this is among your worst.

    As in one scene, the one man who gets lets in, he draws this "shadowy" thing, and also, black shadows keep appearing when the wind whistles, so I'm thinking its some type of shadowy type thing that makes you remember dead ones and makes you sad and wants to kill yourself to be with the person. Well IDK, its just a theory, a- MOVIE THEORY!

    1) it's never confirmed that there is a single monster.
    2) the implication of criminally insane not being suicidal when witnessing said monster, seems to be that they are already delusional and what they're seeing is validation.
    3) im pretty sure the writer googled a handful of demons who fit the bill and slapped them in the script expecting the internet not to fact check.
