Imagine (I know this is hard for a few, but try anyway ) as the world stands now, with all the differing faiths and their depictions of the end of the world, atheists and their lack of belief.
If beings that looked like the so called description of angels, descended on to earth and began to wipe out humanity, would we stand and fight as humans til our last breath, or would all religions and atheists somehow find a way to believe that this was their apocolypse, and just lay down and take it?
I read an interesting book that depicted this scene and then slowly you were made to question whether they were aliens instead of angels, simply cloaked in what we were most vunerable to.
Personally I think the book is a true depiction of what events would look like, and humanity did not fight to save itself, instead it lay down and accepted it's fate. It was only once too much time had passed and still no appearance of a god did the few remaining survivors start questioning what was really going on.
What a shame it would be if humanity were so easily conquered by using their silly beliefs against them.
Would you fight or would you lay down and believe?
