    Only problem with this theory is the connection to the rapture. In Christianity suicide is a MAJOR sin and leads you straight to hell. There will be no one who commits suicide who would make it into heaven. And since the entity causes people to kill themselves it cant involve the rapture.

    This reminds me of doom day its a religous thing it has 3 parts before doom day comes

    Part 1:cropses and animals will die and earth will run out and a war will start bettwen evry single country
    Part 2:a guy with a cross on his face will come to earth and be able to restore earth

    Part 3:jesus comes to earth kills that guy then god kills all belivers and they go the heavn and the sinners stay basiclly the movie

    I’m not really sure but I’m pretty sure in the movie there wasn’t a monster the people had either seen something great and wanted to make others see it too and people who’s saw something some terrifying they kill them self (before I watched the vid)

    I feel that this theory is 90%, but it overlooks on the fact that blind people didn't "go to heaven", if we are to follow the fact that its based on the christian believes, what would that mean? Blind people aren't worthy?

    I noticed game theory was talking about Cthulhu and he was talking about how a human can't comprehend or handle anything about the Cthulhu which would drive them insane to kill themselves but in "Rick and Morty" the Cthulhu is shown in the intro of the show so why didn't it drive rick and morty or summer mad with insanity ?

  • E. Morgan

    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.
