Thanks for the link, I enjoyed that. Well, pages 1, 2 and 11, didn't read the whole thing.
There's an amusing argument (well, it amuses me) in one of the threads over at 4815162348 about whether atheists should be offended by the purgatory world of Lost. I find all this purgatory talk a bit annoying, it only really works in the most abstract sense of a fictional tv show making up their own version of purgatory. Purgatory isn't a universal religious concept, it isn't even a universal Christian concept, but I defy anyone who believes in purgatory to stand up and say that was anything like the purgatory they were taught to believe in.
Really? Purgatory is a place we all agree to make together so we can have a reunion in the afterlife? Really? And atheists are the ones who should be offended by that?
In the context of the show it doesn't bother me at all, they all died happily ever after, how sweet.
There were plenty of "oh, c'mon" bits in "The End" to go around. The biggest one for me turned out to be...
James and Kate got off a perfectly sound sailing ship to take their chances on a wrecked jet! OH, C'MON!
