|After seeing all that went wrong because of technology in the first place over the course of the series, why is it so hard to believe that people would just want to abandon technology? I don't think they abandoned every last scrap of technology. We saw that they still had at least a couple small ships as well as smaller electronic equipment. How else would they have been able to ferry people to all corners of the planet? I'm not sure how interesting it would have been to watch everyone gathering to vote. This was a series finale after all, and one for a complex show. It's also a television series, not a documentary. Why would we need to see a boring detail like that, especially in a sweeping end to the series' run? I'm glad they didn't feel the need to show that. That would have destroyed the pacing of the story. As for quoting other people quoting other people, I don't think that's necessary.

123home123, I agree with you completely.
I thought this was the perfect end to a iconic show. Only then to come back to tv.com and be shocked at the huge uproar by its fans. I mean what were some of you expecting?......a flat out question and answer session or an end to a series??
I'm not a religious person but I think the "Angels" explanation was a really fitting and satisfying solution to the role that faith plays on the show (hello! the Last Supper promo pic ring any bells). From season1 "head" six always spoke about a single God, she infact was a messenger of him all along....is it really that big of a stretch to suggest such a thing? No.
I think why this bothers so many is because it had a "religious explanation" tone and this scares alot of atheist viewers because its imposing its beliefs on the viewers.....now if the religious angle had just popped up in the last 4 episodes on a whim with no prior mention of such a thing in the entire series yes, I would be skeptical HOWEVER, faith has been a significant part of the series since the beginning with humans being Polytheistic and the cylons Monotheistic. So don't take it out on the series since it wasn't the scientific answer you wanted.
And all this crazy hate about them "abandoning their technology' is really unfounded, considering they were barely surviving on those ships day to day looking for A PLACE TO CALL HOME which they finally found in the finale so they no longer needed to search the depths of space. We saw tents, guns and Vipers so who's to say they didn't take whatever essentials they didn't wish to abbandon?
